They say if you need something done, give it to a busy person. There are, I think, two types of “busy person”. One is the type who makes sure they stay busy; they always have three things on the go, they move around a lot during the day, they have a house covered in post-its […]

I feel like all my life I’ve been searching for something that challenges me in the right way. I like university, but third year level papers left me feeling a bit like I was pushing up against the walls. Like there was something on the other side I couldn’t reach. When I was a kid, […]

  Many dreams and darkness into uncounted minutes It’s hard to stay here counting missed medications I find some comfort in the night but I wake up with the guilt of not sleeping   It’s hard to stay here                                              counting missed medications and chapters read, episodes watched moments of a life not lived   I […]

My planning system for 2018

If you want to get something done, you have to plan it, and as a self-proclaimed stationery strumpet, analogue planners fulfil my desire to mess around with paper and pens (and washi tape and coloured pencils and stickers and…) This year my planning system is threefold.

2017 was a tough year. I think we can all agree on that. My aunt asked me today how my year was and I didn’t know how to respond without making some kind of velociraptor screech. But good news! It’s nearly over. After the drawn-out period of mourning that was 2016, the surrealist nightmare of […]

Hey guys. General update post time. First I’d like to talk about Patreon, because they’ve made some changes in the way they account for credit card fees and, like many creators, I’m really not happy about it.

I need to sleep for a week but I barely manage eight hours a night. Also my legs ache and I’m sick of it. I desperately need to start running […]

They should not have come. The stars sat above with silver hats And golden eyes, whispering platinum secrets to the distant drops of steel that stalked so far below. And here the steel-men’s goal: With diamond secrets threaded through their hair they sat in orphaned groves and sang their poetry. They heard the hunters, and […]

Life as it stands

No “Currently” this month. I need a break from them. Instead, here’s my life right now. One big to-do list. I am not writing enough poetry. I am daydreaming too much and writing stories in my head.
