Three Colours White – Krzysztof Kieslowski

By | January 30th, 2019|bullshit, cinema|

What are your top 10 favourite films of all time? One of my favourite collections of cinema was the Three colours trilogy. Julie Delphy was so beautiful in Three Colours White, although I am not sure that she was in the happiest of relationships in that film! Three Colours Blue with Juliette Binoche was also [...]

The land we stand on – Aboriginal land

By | January 26th, 2019|architecture, bullshit, holidays, parks and gardens|

It is Australia Day, apparently. However, the message has changed from ‘change the date’ to ‘abolish Australia Day all together.’ It really does seem fair enough. 'Sovereignty was never ceded'. 'Indigenous Australians were here for 60,000 years, compared to the 231 years of Colonial Australians.' I dare say multiculturalism is a positive thing and helps [...]

Bill Frelick – Regional Crises, Refugees and Human Rights

By | November 20th, 2018|bullshit, interesting people|

Was a really interesting talk tonight at the Wheeler Centre. The speaker was Bill Frelick, who is the director of the Refugees Rights Program at Human Rights Watch. He has also worked at Amnesty International the US Commission for Refugees. He spoke of six barriers to refugees in 2018. It was saddening and eye opening [...]

Songs of the alternative universes

By | June 11th, 2018|bullshit, daily life, school, Uncategorized|

15 minutes to wash the dishes, half a load of dirty washing, spartan bench tops. My first day off in so many weeks was filled with errands and duties, so it was not really a day off at all, until I got into my hand washing, drive to uni and red wine. Can you believe [...]

The Dresden Dolls – for kicking some dick to the kerb

By | March 9th, 2018|bullshit, journal, music|

If there is one thing I have learnt in this life, it is that it is a good idea to have a selection of albums for any emotion. My go to for when I am livid with anger is The Dresden Dolls - particularly the album 'Yes, Virginia'. It is so satisfying.

Handmaid’s Tale – spoiler alert

By | January 22nd, 2018|bullshit, cinema, interesting people, literature|

I finished the first season of the Handmaid's Tale last night. It was an intense mixture of horror and uplifting inspiration. Such a great, creative story. And I loved the ending. I loved the audacity. I loved leaving that family completely barren. Dystopian fiction can be very interesting.

Gorgeous spring vibes in South Yarra

Back to where it all began. :-) It was so exciting to come to Melbourne that first long weekend in 2015. I sat in exactly the same bar on a vibrant Friday afternoon and couldn’t believe that I got through the experience without smoking a cigarette! Amazing :-) Today, I am celebrating my freedom. Even [...]

art and culture lovers – I love Melbourne

By | September 8th, 2017|bars and restaurants, bullshit|

I am pretty sure that what matters to me at least is art and culture. And people who enjoy art and culture. There is something so satisfying about getting completely out of my own head for an evening or afternoon. Tonight was not one of these nights. It was a younger crowd, that my friend [...]

disgusting, aggravated, burnt butter crap

By | July 14th, 2017|bars and restaurants, bullshit|

I am so aggravated. I feel sick, because the vegetarian meal that I ordered was doused in burnt butter. I thought I was being good, until I ate about three thousand calories, and all that dairy. I feel sick. From now on, I avoid meat and I avoid dairy. It is disgusting.
