Untitled Goose Game is a magnificent game produced in Melbourne by House House. And I’ll be honest, I’m slightly underwhelmed by this game.Read more

This is just a super short post about the holiday my boyfriend and I went on this past week.
We visited my favourite Italian restaurant on Philip Island, and explored the old quarantine facility at Portsea.Read more
Bear in mind, this review of JoJo coming from someone who isn’t the intended audience of the show. Given that it originated from a weekly manga magazine for teenage Japanese boys. (And I am, at the time of writing this, a non-binary/demifem person in their 30s.)Read more
The other week lunch was offered on the office, and I was cruelly denied my choice of Japanese cuisine. What happened next? I was forced to endure cravings for miso soup for two weeks. (And I couldn’t settled for the instant variety you can get at the supermarket.)
However, today that all changed.Read more
I’ve had a desire for a while to get back into blogging. For several reasons…
- The act of maintaining a website is enjoyable for me.
- I need a place to get my thoughts, feelings, and opinions out.
- I want to feel heard and connected to people. (It goes without saying that I will do my best to return a comment with a comment. 😊 )
On 27/5/2019 I started my first official class at a new dojo. The last time I practiced was sometime in 2014.
I was never graded in aikido before, and very frustrated because I couldn’t perform a roll. Hopefully my new sensei can help me achieve this action.
Anyway, returning to the mat was, no kidding, like being a baby deer on ice. And this is not just because I’m rusty – but because this dojo is much more physically demanding than the one I was at before. But this is okay actually, because I believe the physical activity is doing me some good.
One thing that prompted me to return to training was all the sitting down I was doing.
Up until recently, I spent all day sitting down at a desk (occasionally using the standing feature or taking a break to play table tennis). Then I sit down all evening to watch Netflix, YouTube, or to play a video game.
Now I look forward to spending my evenings doing physical activity, because it’s doing me some good.
