Being a Vegetarian
I have been a vegetarian for such a long time I feel like I don’t even remember what meat really tastes like. When I was only ten years old, I made a life changing decision to cut meat out of my diet completely. I’m pretty sure my parents were pretty upset with me, because suddenly […]

I have been residing in Adelaide now for about six years. I am very lucky to have made supportive friendships in that time. Still, there are times where I find myself wishing that teleporting technology was already in use so I could just beam myself home to attend a friend’s birthday or be able to […]

Streaming services: friend or foe?
‘Is it on Netflix?’ This is, without fail, the follow-up question I receive when I recommend a film or a show to someone, and if the answer is ‘no’, then the conversation will usually end there. In fact, I’ve started to anticipate this and frame my recommendations as some variation of ‘it’s not on Netflix, […]
Why should I own my mistakes?
Being a student, it isn’t so important to own a mistake. I often hear things like, ‘it wasn’t taught well,’ or, ‘I didn’t have time to learn it,’ and so you make a mistake on a test or exam, something that doesn’t really effect anyone other than yourself.
