At least once a day, someone in my office sprays an aerosol can. This means at least once a day, I have to get up and act like a psycho. It’s not something that I particularly advertise (unless I’m in a ranting mood) but I have asthma. Quite bad asthma as well. Generally I'm categorized … Continue reading Show Some Courtesy: F@$k Your Aerosol Cans Off
Update on SLW
Today’s post is just a short one, basically a little update. When I first started this blog and my business, I was so excited. Had so many big plans and ideas, but if anyone follows this regularly – you probably will have noticed for the last 2 or so months I haven’t been as active … Continue reading Update on SLW
5 things I’ve learnt from working in #callcentrelife
Last month marked my 5th year of working in a call centre environment with my employer. For privacy reasons, I won’t be naming them, but I do want it put on record that I love my job. You could say it’s been a love/hate relationship over the years, but that really always boiled back to … Continue reading 5 things I’ve learnt from working in #callcentrelife
Dark Tourism: poor taste or interesting AF?
I think with today’s blog I more so want to ask a question rather than state my opinion. Dark tourism is defined as tourism involving places that evoke emotions of grief or despair due to previous actions in the location, and you only have to take a look at the rise in click-bait/Facebook articles to … Continue reading Dark Tourism: poor taste or interesting AF?
Lower your holiday standards – you don’t have Beyoncé’s budget.
So many people have dreams about going on trips, but they can't seem to get past what they think a trip will cost. Yes, travelling can be expensive but it doesn’t have to be. This is going to sound weird, but the biggest piece of advice I give people who want to travel is – … Continue reading Lower your holiday standards – you don’t have Beyoncé’s budget.
Ballin’ on a budget: are AfterPay flights a good idea?
I’m not entirely sure when this happened, but I found out yesterday –Jetstar are now doing AfterPay on flights, which makes them the first Australian airline to do so. For those that don’t know, AfterPay is a service that basically gives you the option of buying something and receiving it almost straight away, however you … Continue reading Ballin’ on a budget: are AfterPay flights a good idea?
America’s Stonehenge … yes, America … no, not the other one
Growing up studying The Crucible and the witch trials, I was always fascinated by Salem, hence my stop there on my road trip last year. But did you know there are two Salem’s in that same area? They are actually quite close to each other, but one is in New Hampshire and one is in … Continue reading America’s Stonehenge … yes, America … no, not the other one
Dear Nickelback – stop making music videos that make me cry. Sincerely, a grieving daughter.
Grief is a strange thing. Its definition states that it is: “A deep and poignant distress caused by or as if by bereavement; or, an unfortunate outcome” I don’t know about you but distress is not even close to describing what I’ve felt since my father passed away. It’s not a powerful enough word. Today … Continue reading Dear Nickelback – stop making music videos that make me cry. Sincerely, a grieving daughter.
Don’t believe everything you think …
This is going to be a short post, and it’s more of me writing to get some thoughts out of my head. I use writing to help my mental health, so this post is in a way vocalising what’s been stressing me out recently. My count down is officially on for my holidays, it’s like … Continue reading Don’t believe everything you think …
Cruise Shore-Trips 101: don’t sell your friend to your driver
In 2016, I went on a cruise with 3 of my friends. The cruise itself was the P&O Island Hopper, on the Pacific Dawn, and it took us to New Caledonia and Vanuatu. Port Vila, in Vanuatu, was my favourite stop of the cruise. I’d heard that Vila was really similar to Australia, and I … Continue reading Cruise Shore-Trips 101: don’t sell your friend to your driver
