But Why Doesn’t She Leave?

Every single time there’s a domestic violence report in Australia (and unfortunately Australia has a huge domestic violence problem) people comment and pass their judgement. Obviously. It’s what humanity does. Many people offer support, provide their own personal stories, and say things like, “I’ll pray for you.” However, for every person that is kind with … Continue reading But Why Doesn’t She Leave?

Brain on Fire: Review

As soon as Netflix dropped Brain on Fire, I immediately watched it – as someone with a chronic disability, the idea of someone else suffering an invisible, unexplained illness, was all too reminiscent of both my past and my future. The movie itself isn’t fantastic – don’t get me wrong, it’s worth the watch (especially … Continue reading Brain on Fire: Review

The Friend Zone

So often, I see memes and stories on the internet about how “nice guys” are always overlooked by women. You would’ve heard about it, too – it’s often referred to as the “friend-zone”. This “friend-zone” theory irritates me because more often than not, these so-called “nice guys” often don’t want a friendship – they use … Continue reading The Friend Zone

The Right To Choose

Abortion. It’s one of the most controversial topics in today’s society – if not the most controversial. In my experience, especially as a teacher, most people don’t actually understand the difference between pro-life and pro-choice. In my experience, most people are actually pro-choice – they just don’t realise it or want to accept what that … Continue reading The Right To Choose

When I Was Twelve

My earliest memory of anything sexually inappropriate begins at the age of twelve. It's possible something may have happened earlier, but I doubt it. Regardless, I have no recollection. When I was twelve, my parents had a very large party. It lasted three days. If that sounds strange to you, this is Australia. We have … Continue reading When I Was Twelve

The Friendship Breakup: Caught In The Middle

A common question I’m asked about friendship break ups is what to do when it’s between mutual friends – and what that person should do. Obviously, when you’re caught in the middle of two friends feuding, it’s never fun, and you almost certainly pick sides (even if that was never your intention). For this one, … Continue reading The Friendship Breakup: Caught In The Middle

Truth or Consequences

The other night, I watched a powerful episode of Doctor Who. (I am a MAJOR Doctor Who fan. If you’ve never seen it, you need to get on that bandwagon. Seriously.) In this episode, The Zygon Invension, the Zygons, an alien race capable of replicating human faces (meaning, they can become anyone), has decided to … Continue reading Truth or Consequences
