Talking shop on an effervescent evening

By | March 27th, 2019|architecture, bars and restaurants, professional, school, technology|

It was interesting to venture off the island to a whole other neighbourhood tonight. An adventure, but a typically safe, academic kind of adventure to go and listen to a panel talk about e-commerce. The room was absolutely bubbling with other interested parties. This is a particularly nice quarterly meetup because they put a tab [...]

I wish you guys were at the amazing Love and the Moon event at Scienceworks last night! I think you would have loved it! What the website fails to mention I think is this whole amazing exhibition upstairs that completely blew me and Bella's minds. To be true, the huge model of the moon (on [...]

It has only been 20 years since I found out about it, but it was good to finally see Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders. It was the closing night film of the German Film Festival and I absolutely loved it. I felt that it was so incredibly exhilarating to get a birds eye view [...]

Melbourne Knowledge Week is the best! Last night we went to a talk at the MKW Hub. It is an amazing space, filled with light art, beautiful ferns and sculptures. The talk was a panel of authors and academics discussing how we can avoid a Dystopian future. I loved the first speaker, Andrew Milner the [...]

battered soul – internal experience

By | May 8th, 2018|journal, music, professional, technology|

It is so nice to pour vodka soda and smooth electronica over my battered, aching soul. My job can be stressful sometimes and when I am firing on adrenaline for sometime, there is a come down from that. It leaves my soul in pieces, aching and tired and scattered all over. It is the sort [...]

It is really nice to have a Saturday night at home for a change, and just cook and drink wine and listen to nice music. I am making a mini herbed roast lamb, and it is fun. I went to the Melbourne Museum this afternoon. It is definitely worth doing. They have some amazing exhibits. [...]

Enter the dragon – White Night Melbourne

I am at the Melbourne Museum and I got my cup of tea. It is very refreshing. White Night tuckers me out every time! It is something about the lights, the crowds, the walking. I am supposed to be meeting some friends, but I think I am done. And what a finale! I am sitting [...]

adventures on a rainy day – cruising in my brooom

By | November 16th, 2017|daily life, technology|

There is something fun about going for a cruise through my city, on an unusual kind of adventure. I have to get my ignition switch replaced, as there is a recall for this part on my car. They took their time finding the fault! Apparently it is at risk of starting a fire. Inside the [...]

Margaret Atwood – The Heart Goes Last

By | November 15th, 2017|interesting people, literature, technology|

Margaret Atwood is certainly an amazing story teller. I still have one episode left of the Handmaid's Tale, and that was fascinating. Dark, interesting, scary. The other day I found another one of her books in my library's ebook collection. The Heart Goes Last. It is another one of those dystopian stories that makes me [...]
