What started out as an exercise to reflect on my blogging and writing skills, led to the idea of creating a series of reflective posts. In a year when theatre and the arts were practically halted to a standstill globally, I had to take a minute to reflect on how lucky I’ve been to get the opportunity to take the stage several times this year.
November and December are always exciting months for my family and I, as right after Halloween we start preparing for Christmas. Saying that we love the holiday is a bit of an understatement. Under normal circumstances, we would have fully decorated mum’s house for Halloween and had a massive party. On the first of November... Continue Reading →
Since writing the post about my dad, it’s been incredibly difficult to write down my thoughts. Thoughts are constantly flooding my overthinking brain. It’s just been incredibly difficult to express myself. These are some incredibly raw emotions that I finally managed to express, that clearly show the vulnerability I’ve been experiencing over the past weeks.

I have been lucky enough to grow up enjoying quite ‘elaborate’ celebrations for my birthday. I am always on the lookout for occasions to ‘celebrate’ - throw a party, host... Continue Reading →
A 10th anniversary reflection Tomorrow’s my birthday. But this birthday is a little more special as I’m also celebrating the 10th anniversary from when I did something incredibly stupid and ended up spending a birthday in hospital. I’m posting this today because the incident I’m going to talk about actually happened exactly 10 years ago... Continue Reading →
I am not the biggest beach fan, in fact you’ll rarely see me by the seaside. The few times I do go to the beach, it’s usually because of friends who organise a beach day and it would be a good chance to spend some time with them. As I sit here writing on a... Continue Reading →
This post has been a long time coming, but sometimes life throws us curve balls which put us completely off balance, and the past weeks have been just that. I cannot say that I was completely removed from society during this isolation period. There were days I just had to leave the house and go... Continue Reading →
