TV Review: 13 Reasons Why

I recently watched 13 Reasons Why on Netflix and I feel utterly compelled to write about it. 13 Reasons Why is the story of Hannah Baker, a teenager who commits suicide and leaves behind a series of tapes listing the reasons why she made the decision that she did.  It is told from the perspective…

Graduation Day… Again

Last weekend was my graduation! Hooray! I made it. Given everything that had happened over the time I was trying to complete this bloody degree, I decided that the best thing for me to do was to actually attend my graduation ceremony (I didn’t for the last one, but I did for the one before…

What Now?

Hello everyone! Did you miss me? Probably not. Let’s face it, only about 3.6 people read this blog and I’m fairly confident that, apart from the occasional rando from Europe, about 95% of visitors share my surname.For those of you that are not my stalkerish parents, I’ll let you in on what’s been going on…

First off, congratulations Australia on finally waking up and booting out Tony Abbott! Hurrah! I can’t think of anything that has made me happier in recent…

Death by Cretoxyrhina

The other day I nearly met my maker in the most embarassing of ways. Picture this: I am driving to work at 10:30 at night. I’ve just passed the Rex Lookout halfway between Cairns and Port Douglas and I have about 30km to go at this point. It’s a dark night, relatively cloudy but not…
