This January 26th is my 6th Australia Day, but it’s the first one where I have celebrated it. There wasn’t a reason I didn’t celebrate the others, but to me, it was […]
On September 3, 2020 at 9:21am I received the phone call I had been dreaming about for over 8 years. Your permanent resident visa has been granted. GRANTED. I was officially in […]
I’ve been in Australia since 13-November 2015 and chasing that Australia dream since my feet hit the ground. Half of the first year, I had a place to stay, in the basement of […]
Those fans of Doctor Who will get the “the girl who waited” reference and those don’t watch Doctor Who probably don’t care about the reference. I honestly battled with the title because […]
When you’re best and closest friend of 18+ years asks if you will take her granddaughter’s “flat Stanley” on a tour, you can’t disappoint her or her grand daughter. These are the […]

Those fanciful fun fellows from 8 BIT LOVE have given us a non traditional Christmas song (the best kind I say) with “I’ll Be Home(less) for Christmas”. 8 BIT LOVE‘s quasi-Christmas carol was inspired […]
I am a bit biased, but 26‘s cover of KATY PERRY‘s “Legendary Lovers” is absolutely wonderful. Even if I am biased, I prefer the cover by 26 over the original. The song sounds […]
