What I loved about Canterbury and Dover + travel photos

Some months ago I started a series of posts on my travels around Great Britain and Europe while I was studying as an exchange student in London. I started with Oxford, my first foray out of London---but have since neglected to continue the series. That changes today. On my second jaunt out of London, I… Continue reading What I loved about Canterbury and Dover + travel photos

I’ve been taking photos with a disposable camera

About three months ago I walked into a stationery store and bought a disposable camera for AUD $17. I've been slowly filling up its roll of film over the past three months and, finally, last week, brought it into one of the only film camera stores left in my city for developing. I got the… Continue reading I’ve been taking photos with a disposable camera

I’ve been watching: Sierra Burgess is a Loser

I have a secret. Chick flicks are my guilty pleasure.

And then I spent the rest of the day trying to get an over-zealous Managing Director off charges of workplace bullying. The plaintiff was accusing this Managing Director of being aggressive and… Continue reading Barrister for a day: I learned court advocacy

Stress brings out the worst in people: my experience with a cancelled flight

Personally, I've never found airports as stressful places as other people. I'm just not someone who stresses very much in general. I had an aunt once describe me as "horizontal" and that I had "no pulse" because of how "chilled out" I am. Certainly, I can see why many people become stressed and anxious in… Continue reading Stress brings out the worst in people: my experience with a cancelled flight

My next phone: Google or OnePlus

It's an exciting time for me at the moment. I'm back on the market. For a new smartphone. And, you know, in the other way as well -- if anyone's interested. But that's not a new thing. My trusty Samsung Galaxy S6 has served me well for the best part of two years, but, as… Continue reading My next phone: Google or OnePlus
