This Week

sleepy kitten

Life Got back from the US, met up with people on Saturday and generally just chilled out. Got a lot of writing done, which is nice, and made some progress through the first round of feedback for the AOSA book chapter. Places Pretty boring! Went to Granger & Co for brunch (always amazing), and hot chocolate and cake at ...

On Appreciation

two ants

One of my friends laid down some wisdom recently, which they allowed me to post anonymously here with instructions that it was to be illustrated with a picture of ants. I hope it reverberates with you, as it did with me. We don't talk about the slow fade of being ignored, being unappreciated. This is a ...

Yeah cats are basically what you need to know about blogging

LIFE Gave a talk at ModevUX, and was on a panel. I was terrified but they both went pretty well. I also met some really lovely people and was really inspired by some of the other presentations. After that, I went on to Kirkland. After 5 nights in Suburbia I couldn't take anymore, so I relocated ...

On Coming “Home”

Yotsuba and Danbo:Trick or Treat on Halloween

A while ago, someone introduced me to the concept of “Third Culture Kids”. "Third culture kid (TCK, 3CK) is a term used to refer to children who were raised in a culture outside of their parents’ culture for a significant part of their development years." I remember identifying with some of the aspects, of not knowing where ...

This Week

danbo tug of war

LIFE Such a hectic week. Caught up with a friend visiting from Sydney (theatre!), spent a relaxed Saturday afternoon with another friend (more theatre!). I gave a talk at iOSCon, which went well. And I had two conference proposals accepted, so that is cool. Something I wrote was pretty popular too, which is always nice. But exhausting, ...

Frankfurt, March 2014

Which I'm super excited about, but have also had the usual worries about people realising ...

Falling Down the Rabbit Hole

Stop peeking at me

Typically, I have a very simple rule when it comes to TV. I watch it at the gym, and on planes. This is my secret trick for getting in lots of cardio. Every so often, probably about once a year, I break this rule. Not with just one episode of Big Bang Theory whilst I eat dinner, ...

This Week

LIFE My birthday this week, which made me angsty. So many people remembered though which was really sweet. Hung out with friends, got in some reasonable gym time. Getting the pool to myself for a while on Saturday was a highlight of my week. Not feeling very creative lately, I think it's because I've reached this really boring ...
