unsplashNathan Dumlao I was making an english breakfast tea the other day and thought I'd try out the soy that I usually have with my chai teas. Turns out it's been a while since my last tea. The soy was a tad lumpy. Circumstances recently have lead me to using lactose free milk, soy milk … Continue reading Shitty Milk.
That new show on Netflix got me thinking, Altered Carbon. I'm not usually one to revert to year 12 english and think about the deep and meaningful side of television, but it hit a nerve. This whole idea of sleeves, and being able to buy an entire new body. It made me think about my … Continue reading The Skin You’re In.
Lately I've been applying for jobs. This is apparently what you do, you get your piece of paper, and then look for someone who will pay you for having that. It's been messing with me a little. The whole feeling worthless thing because I'm not currently out there contributing to something bigger, but also getting … Continue reading Subconscious Little Shit
Since finishing uni last year, I have jumped into the pool of overqualified and under-experienced, underemployed graduates. I'm still not sure what to do with myself, and I'm questioning why I have to know the answer to this straight away. I wasn't one of those people who could do a degree for a specific job. … Continue reading To Apply, or Not to Apply
This is my first year out of uni, and I'm terrified. I loved uni. It was this safe bubble, still in the real world, but away from the real responsibilities. I had nothing to do the other day. No work, nothing to study, nothing to work on. It was the stuff of nightmares. I … Continue reading Permission to do Nothing.
unsplash-logonikko macaspac Throughout university I dealt with the onslaught of IBS. From doing that awkward speed walk to abandoning my car at the nearest entrance to a building, my IBS was always with me. It made sense, university is stressful, and IBS is triggered by stress. It had me buckled over in the class room … Continue reading This is the Shit.
Suffering in the media. I feel like it can be a case of damned if you do and damned if you don’t. The phrase “poverty porn”, has been used to describe a sensationalised coverage of poverty. And I totally agree. In some aspects. I don’t agree with the notion that it covers all images of suffering … Continue reading The Other
We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are –Anais Nin The fear of the unknown is a very real aspect of society. We see it in racism, it's always present during political elections and rally’s, we even see it through the coverage of weather patterns. My bone to pick here, is … Continue reading The Self
They say that 'ignorance is bliss', however most of the time all I see is that it is one of the greatest causes of fear and hate. The second something happens that we cannot explain, we tend to jump to conclusions, talk to people around us or come up with our own theories. I’m guilty. … Continue reading Ignorance Is Not Bliss
Last semester at Uni I had a project that required me to under go a behaviour change for 10 weeks. I tried meditation. I thought I could easily commit to 20 minutes of meditation a day, and that I would reduce my stress levels and consequent side-affects. Let me tell you, it was not at all easy. … Continue reading The Irony of Stressing about Meditation
