Meet the Bloggers: Annabelle
Hi everyone! My name is Annabelle, and I am one of the new bloggers joining the What Messes with Your Head? team. I moved to Adelaide to study Media and Journalism from Mount Gambier after finishing school and working as a receptionist in my post-education gap year.

I had to wait twenty minutes for my bus this morning. I was sitting there with nothing really to do. I didn’t want to scroll through my phone, and I didn’t have anything to plan out. So, I just sat there and waited. It can be strange to have nothing to be doing, especially when […]
