The startup world chewed me up and spat me out.

Oh hey there! Remember me? I was that girl that occasionally blogged and then went M.I.A for four months. Well, I’m baaaaaack! Where have I been you ask? Well I took a little trip down startup lane, and that sort of took over my entire life for four months so there was very little time for me to blog, or do little else, for that … Continue reading The startup world chewed me up and spat me out.

What if money was no object? What would you do?

I came across this video today and it struck a particular chord with me. It feels like one of the most common questions twenty-somethings ponder is “What do I really want to do with my life?”, and this video encourages you think about that proposition in it’s most rawest form. If money was NO object, what would you do? Given that I jus had a … Continue reading What if money was no object? What would you do?

How to make friends as a ‘grown-up’

I’ve realised after leaving university and moving cities, away from the people that I have grown up with, that making new friendships as an adult is a whole other ball game. It isn’t the same as when you were a kid. You would just sit down beside someone, starting having a chat, and that was it – Best Friends Forever. Nowadays I’m meeting people on a regular … Continue reading How to make friends as a ‘grown-up’

Creating something valuable

I always wanted this platform to first and foremost be a positive creative outlet for me, and secondly, to provide something of real value to the world. ‘Value to the world’ is perhaps a bit intense… After all this blog is just a very, VERY small fish in a pond almost infinitely large, the internet.

I think I’m having a quarter-life crisis

Just FYI, I think I am experiencing a mid-twenties freak out. Or what’s more commonly referred to as a quarter-life crisis. I just read a Buzzfeed article titled ’10 signs you’re having a quarter-life crisis’ and agreed with basically everything in the article, so if that’s not a surefire diagnosis, I don’t know what is. Wikipedia defines the quarter-life crisis as: A period of life … Continue reading I think I’m having a quarter-life crisis

FYI I don’t want to ‘have it all’, it’s quite exhausting actually.

Our generation apparently wants to ‘have it all’. But do we? Because where I’m sitting it seems like there are an awful lot of things that are expected of us nowadays, and I’m not sure that we ever asked for it – I somehow think life just started getting a little crazy, we all ran with it, and now its a standard requirement to live … Continue reading FYI I don’t want to ‘have it all’, it’s quite exhausting actually.
