The first time I ever realised the potential power of my voice as a writer and ability to one day create change was when I penned an open letter to the Walt Disney Animation Corporation and Studios in 2015. I wrote the letter after I went to see the groundbreaking and heartwrenching animated film from the company, Inside Out with my family. I remember being … Continue reading The #DisneyDisabled Campaign
*crawls out from under a rock* Hi Guys! I was introducing someone new to my blogs tonight because they’re always really supportive of my writing on another platform and realised I hadn’t watered this cyber garden since MARCH. Yikes! Pretty sure I’ve broken every golden rule of blogging so hopefully someone out there is still reading this haha! Now, I’m sure you haven’t missed me … Continue reading Guess Who’s Back? Back Again…
Team sport is often referred to as a ship. The kind where all members must work together with the captain at the wheel. Well, here’s the thing I’ve learned about team ships the last couple of days… Icebergs can come in all forms and just like The Titanic, once you hit them, there’s no going back. For the men who wear the baggy green, the iceberg came … Continue reading The Yellow Tape Iceberg
Hands up if you watch videos on Youtube? Yeah, I thought so. Well, there are some things you might want to know… If you’ve ever wondered why Youtube pops those ads on in the beginning or middle of the video you’re trying to watch which is annoying and maybe even awkward especially if you’re using it for music at a party, it’s because they have … Continue reading The One With Youtube, Art and the very first interview on the blog.
So I’ve never shared anything like this before, at least not here… This is a poem I wrote a couple of days ago about hiding hard feelings and rawness behind masks built on the pretence of pretending to be fine, something I think we are all guilty of doing. I’m really intrigued to see what you think so please tell me 🙏🏻 “Hidden” Her skin … Continue reading An Experiment..
It’s a Friday afternoon and I am exhausted. Today marks the end of the first week of my final exams. My body feels weighted down with arbitrary facts about 1930’s Russia not to mention I’m still shaking fatigue from muscles that feel almost overtrained, (could that possibly be a symptom of the three hour PDHPE exam I did yesterday?) I crawl into bed and grab … Continue reading Flickers of Irish Americana Troubadour
I wasn’t going to write this. I didn’t and don’t want anyone to feel as though I am forcing them to think or behave in a certain way. But then I realised that not writing it would be a major compromise of my values and the philosophy I hold when it comes to writing, identity, kindness and so forth. So here we are… The NRL … Continue reading Proud.
TW: This post contains discussion of and reference to sexual assault. It may be triggering for some readers. You already know that’s Taylor Swift. She needs no introduction as one of the most successful musicians of all time. Her albums Fearless & 1989 are the most awarded country and pop albums in history, respectively. You’d be forgiven for thinking that the level of fame she has acquired over the … Continue reading I’m Speaking Up. #StayStrongTaylor
It was a normal Wednesday night for me as a Year 12 student, Pauline. I was caught in clouds of notes and study as I seem to always be, these days. I was taking a quick break and scrolling through my Twitter when I saw this from the absolute legend that is Kurt Fearnley. Heaven forbid, kids experience a full spectrum of life in the … Continue reading Pauline, I think we need to talk…
I have never been a fan of One Direction so I was surprised to find I was actually intrigued about what the solo self-titled debut offering of Harry Styles would sound like. I listened and I…. *gasp* REALLY LIKED IT?!! So… just like I did for Ed here’s my review. I hope you guys like it 😊 Meet Me In The Hallway is a really intriguing … Continue reading When Harry Releases An Album…
