Best Of: Christmas Films
Christmas films are very important to me. Both the good and the bad (in fact, sometimes the bad are the most fun). One of my favourite things about Christmas is the ritual of watching new additions that inevitably appear on streaming services like Netflix but, mostly, re-visiting the old classics. It’s no coincidence that, even […]
Best Of: Martin Scorsese Films
In case you missed it, Martin Scorsese’s new film, The Irishman—about the Buffalino crime family and their connection to infamous Teamster Jimmy Hoffa—landed on Netflix on the 27th of November after a limited cinema release. It’s a big deal because, well, it’s Scorsese, and also because it marks the re-uniting of some of the best actors […]
House Mates: Episode 7 – The Exam Grumpies
Everything is always changing. The exam grumpies have gripped the house hold. Another year is drawing to a close and everyone seems to go there separate ways, but it’s not over yet!

Review: Borsa Pasta Cucina
Borsta Pasta Cucina, located on Grenfell Street, is an Italian bistro tucked away in Adelaide’s bustling business sector. It’s traditional: there’s dark wood and low-lighting, fresh pasta airing in the kitchen, etched glassware, and fine white china mixed in with plates reminiscent of Nonna’s house. Something about it feels very 1970s Italian dining. The kind […]
The Best Sport Movies
I don’t care that much about sport, but for some reason I love movies about sport. I love the comradery, the struggle, the eventual win against all odds. So, in case you’re in need of a good hit of those things, here are five sports movies that I consider essential viewing.

A few weeks ago, on the 29th August to be exact, I attended the Pride Fest Launch organised by the Adelaide University Union.

Whenever I recommend Fleabag to someone, I do so almost forcefully, because it is that good. Created by and starring the formidable Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the series tells the story of a protagonist known only as ‘Fleabag’ as she grapples with the death of her best friend, endures her splintered and bizarre family, and struggles with […]
Who am I, Really?
I’ve always been a sucker for trashy personality quizzes. When I was younger, I’d flip open my glossy copy of Total Girl or Dolly to the section that promised to reveal ‘Which Jonas Brother my soulmate was’ (obviously Joe; I unironically love Camp Rock and used to have the biggest crush on Shane Grey), or ‘Which […]

A Trip to the Horse Paddock in North Adelaide
Did you know that there are horses that live in North Adelaide? They have a large paddock in Lefevre Park / Nantu Wama (Park 6) in the north-eastern corner. I love visiting this park. It is like visiting the countryside, but you are only a stone’s throw away from the city.

Why Play an Instrument?
I’ve played the piano on and off for around 13 years (emphasis on on and off), and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. I never want to be a concert pianist, and I make mistakes when I play, but it’s gotten me through some rough patches and helped me in so many ways.
