Seven Years

Had a notice that said it is my seventh anniversary on this blog. I can’t believe it. I set this up during a uni class back in Melbourne and it’s been going strong for all that time! Thinking back on what’s happened since then, I went and developed a bunch of feels. I’ve self-published seven […]

Utrecht, a month in.

Today marks the one-month anniversary of my arrival to Utrecht. It is the one month mark for the coronavirus shutdown. The day me and Chris got out of the UK was the day when everything closed.

I wish I was a machine

Decreased productivity :(

In the last three weeks, I have not written as much as I would like. I spent a few days in Germany, then I was sick for another four. And while I thought up another book idea I am still lagging behind in writing up others 😦 I think I might be suffering from writer’s block […]
