Writing my heart out

September 3, 2015

There is something therapeutic about writing. I spent most of my Sunday indoors, writing. Sure, it was my university assignments but the units I’m doing this semester are extremely interesting. I’m studying Feature Writing and Creative Nonfiction. I have realised that I enjoy it more than fiction. Or maybe, I’m just a little better at it than fiction. The more I write, the more I know I want to continue doing this. I’ve noticed that writing is one of the…

Wordless Wednesday: Box Vale Loop Hike

September 2, 2015

A couple of weekends ago, I went on a hike after what seems like a long time! It was good for the soul and just what the mental health professional ordered. The company is always good and well, just being around nature does wonders for me. We hiked about 14 kilometres and completed the Box Vale Loop which is close to Mittagong in the Southern Highlands.

Wordless Wednesday: Weekend in Hyams Beach

August 26, 2015

Mr Imperfect and I celebrated one year at the start of the month. We decided to go away for the weekend down to Hyams Beach in Jervis Bay. I’ve been to Hyams Beach a few times and I love it but Mr Imperfect hasn’t. So I figured I’d show him part of the south coast — an area I find so beautiful and delightful that I wouldn’t mind moving there someday. We stayed in a cottage 50 metres from the…
