How I Climbed Mt. Everest

Disclaimer: I haven’t actually climbed Mt. Everest. I want to. Very badly. I ended up down a rabbit hole of mountaineering and climbing YouTube videos and after emerging from several hours of bingeing with bleary eyes, I had a new goal; climb Mt. Everest. Except.

The April Overview!

It’s the 4th of May, and I’m only just writing this blog post now. Usually I try to write my monthly reviews as things happen, but April kicked my ass so now we get my attempt at remembering everything that happened… Strap in! First up; Easter! My mum came down from Melbourne to surprise me…

A Look Back at March

Did you know one year ago I had just got back into the country and was quarantining? Thankfully we avoided the hotel quarantine in Melbourne (which turned out to be quite the fiasco) by 24 hours… We were in Japan and had left waaaaay back at the beginning of March, before COVID19 even had the…

A look back on February…

Right, okay friends. Frankly, I can’t remember 2 hours ago so this Feb overview is going to be… interesting. This is exactly why I use a calendar, a journal and a diary, because otherwise my life would be a complete mystery. For example: in Woolworths this morning I was trying to remember what I had…
