Bushwalking in the Blue Mountains
Diary

There’s a reason why it’s called bushwalking in Australia because you’re literally walking through a lot of bush. This particular trek was from Martin’s lookout to Bunyan lookout, with an extension out to the Lost World lookout. It was pretty crazy to see the blue haze between the valleys. Apparently the chemicals released by the…

Cool girl
Diary

Went to see Tove Lo last night – proud to have been able to stay awake late on a school night. I think it would have been easier if the crowd was more into it. I can’t tell if it’s a Sydney thing or just this particular crowd – not many people were dancing along,…

Rising Sun Workshop
Food

Not only is the Rising Sun Workshop an interesting combination of garage and cafe – it’s also an interesting mix of East and West. Ambiance On the day I visited, it was sunny and the cafe looked friendly and welcoming; the front counter fully stashed with delectable looking treats and coffee. Walking through was a…

Circles and hometowns

It’s a bluebird day as I sit on a bench in front of the beach with my friend Janine. She has her sunglasses on and a thin cardigan strewn across her 2nd trimester baby bump. She takes a breather on the bench after our short walk from her apartment in the vegan-friendly, yoga-practicing, juice-drinking neighbourhood…

Eat sleep repeat
Diary

It has been a rocky week back to Sydney. In my head I thought I would be really good getting back into my routine but there just aren’t enough hours in the day. I left grocery shopping until Monday – and didn’t have time so I missed packing lunch for two days. Then I tried…

Weddings in Vancouver
Diary

Blew off a bit of steam this weekend after we launched a website for work – Started off at the bar at the client’s offices, then off we went to the Lord Raglan in Alexandria. Had some burgers, which were decent but not as good as the ones we had last week at the Kingston…

Vivid Sydney
Diary

I didn’t plan anything for the long weekend because I wanted to reset a little after the last couple of weeks. After 2 days of downtime at home I was getting cabin fever and really bad FOMO. A desperate need to be out with other humans brought me to a daytime karaoke event on Meetup.…

Running with the wolves
Diary

The past month as been about… getting back into feeling human again. What makes me feel good (yoga, keeping busy, making plans with new friends) and knowing what to avoid (not sleeping enough, not eating right, too much caffeine or alcohol). I ran for the first time in a while today, and it’s no surprise,…

Broken connectedness
Diary

I went on a walk this Anzac day with a friend and quite a random group of humans. In that group I had a good chat with one of the guys who organised the walk. After some stimulating conversation about technology, what I do for work, what he does for work, we eventually got to…
