I wrote a piece for the Huffington Post about how I stopped feeling like an inadequate blobfish at Oxford. You can read it here!
Exciting news! Today my article ‘8 Lessons I Learned From Traveling Solo’ is one of The Huffington Post’s featured blog posts. Check it out here!
Apparently the typical blog lasts for 100 posts which, assuming maybe thrice-weekly posting, is about the shelf-life of a commercially-produced stroopwafel. Admittedly I’ve let this space get a little stale over the last month or so, but I intend to push it past the mean expiration date. Because for me, blogging, like a syrup-filled dough sandwich, is a treacly life-sweetner.
Firstly, it has encouraged me to try new things. Obviously not in a Hannah Horvath-ian get sex-punched in the chest/sleep with the boss for the story kind of way, but I might (for example) have chickened out of improv if it hadn’t been a slow week with little else to write about. I also have an amazing blind date story itching to be written up into a pivotal romcom scene; after all my hypocritical whinging and an interesting plot twist, I ended up going on this college date exchange because I thought it could make for a good tale.
Watching me flirt is like watching a mouse trying to scrabble up the side of a bathtub. Nevertheless, I wrote an article about overcoming this social ineptness for HelloGiggles. You can read it here.
Last day of 2014, and a time for reflection. This year has been a corker: I got my law degree from USyd, moved to Oxford, and have spent the last 3 months throwing myself into BCL and college life. I’ve tried rowing and survived regattas, adjusted to a pretty competitive environment, done some amazing travelling, and still have all my natural teeth (no fillings here!)
…in the meantime, Exciting News!
An article I wrote is featuring on the one and only ManRepeller. I feel like an ensemble of whimsical socks + D&G sandals + Stetson hat + coveralls…ie. I have Leandra and the MR girls’ tick of approval!
I’ve been following this hilarious blog since its inception, so am stoked to make an appearance on it!
Read about my delusions of New York/Jay-Z grandeur in my piece ‘In That Empire State of Mind’.
