I’m twenty nine, and I have two sisters and one brother. I spent part of my childhood in Taiwan, so I can speak a little bit of Chinese. I live about an hour from Melbourne, Australia, in a cream-coloured house surrounded by roses, magnolias and wisteria, with my dashingly nerdy
boyfriend fiancé (!) Nathan and two rambunctious dogs, Posie and Rupert. I recently finished a Bachelor of Arts in professional/creative writing, literary studies and children’s literature; now, I’m working on an honours thesis about conflict between physical and metaphysical experiences of maternity in confessional poetry. I love: reading, dumplings, summer, wearing dresses, good poetry, flowers, yoga, music, skiing, travelling, taking photos and playing scrabble. I also love playing Age of Empires, eating raw cookie dough, buying plane tickets, and practically anything dog-related.
I started this blog in 2012 after on-and-off blogging since about 2004, mostly as a way to share little snapshots of my life: things that I love, photos, inspirations, and all my random thoughts. It also forces me to write, but without the pressure that comes with academic or literary writing. Thank you for reading!
