Home is where the heart is

April 10, 2017

This coming weekend will mark six months since I moved from the Sutherland Shire to the Central Coast. Six months since I gave up all things familiar to move someplace I’d visited only once before. Six months since I left all the friends I’ve made in the last eleven years to move to place where I know no one. So what has it been like? Work has been great. I can’t complain. In that sense, I’ve made the best decision. I…

A letter to Hermione Granger #FridayReflections

February 24, 2017

Dear Hermione, It’s hard to believe you became a known entity twenty years ago. I, however, was only introduced to you four years after that. At first, I’ll admit I didn’t particularly like you. After all, no one likes a know-it-all. But then, you slowly grew on me. You actually began to remind me of myself at a younger age.

As we navigate this map called life, we encounter a number of people along the way. When we are innocent children, we accept the friendship of those who play with us; no strings attached. We are happy to play in the sand, push each other on swings, kick a football around. It’s the company we long for, the fun we have. Nothing more. Nothing less. When we begin school, we befriend those we see often. Sometimes it’s the girl you sit…

Goodbye 2016. And good riddance #FridayReflections #Yearinreview

December 30, 2016

I almost titled this post ‘Fuck you, 2016‘. Because let’s face it, it’s been pretty shitty. Even if you discount all the celebrity deaths {Snape, noooo…}, the terrorism in the world, the fear and anxiety, the election of Pauline Hanson here in Aus, the current heartbreaking state of Syria and the election of Trump, well, it was a pretty meh kinda year. But when you realise all those things have happened in the space of 12 months, well, it’s no wonder…
