The Art of Losing Contact

To how many people have you said “we’ll always remain friends, no matter where we end up.” At the time, those words mean the world, but six months down the track, you seem to forget the context in which you said them. After moving away from the town I went to high school in, I’ve […]

The Art of Loving First

Carson McCullers once said that “First of all, love is a joint experience between two persons – but the fact it is a joint experience does not mean that it is a similar experience to the two people involved.” This isn’t a blog post about boyfriend/girlfriend, but about love in general, in all our everyday […]

The Art of Saying Yes

I want to say yes to adventures. Yes to going out of my comfort zone. Yes to spontaneity. Yes to saying the words I was always to afraid to speak. Yes to God. I know my thing has been ‘say no if that’s your thing’, but now it’s my time to say yes. So many […]

The Art of Procrastinating

I’ve never really thought about myself as a procrastinator before; I’m usually pretty good at being motivated to get things done and to check another thing off my to-do list. But every now and then, I get in this mood, like I am now, where study is just so unappealing I will do anything to […]

The Art of Loving Cold Beach Days

The day looks cold and unwelcome. Except…today is beach day, and beach days are always awesome when cold! Well, most of the time. Besides the cold part. But we’ll get to that later on. For now, lets see why the beach is so great, even when the sun aint shining. 1/ There is no enforced […]

The Art of Saying No

I don’t know if you remember, but I have a post that I wrote not all that long ago on doing what energises you rather than what exhausts you. Well, it’s time to take my own advice, even though it’s hard. Harder than I thought it would be. Because the thing that I didn’t say […]

The Art of Feeling Content

Today is one of those days. A day where the temperature isn’t too hot, nor too cold, and the workload light. There’s a slight breeze lifting the room, and I have my music on, a favourite playlist of mine that always makes me feel better. I’ve had several good conversations with people, conversations that picked […]

The Art of Doing what Energises You

Think about it: if you’re exhausted, you can’t give as much. You can’t give out because you yourself haven’t had enough input into yourself. This was actually a real struggle for me last year. Twenty-seventeen is my second year of living in this house, with all of these people, so this year I’m way more […]

The Art of Loving Summer

“Are you a summer or winter person?” It’s not that much of an unusual question, especially when a) one season is ending and another is quickly coming, or b) when you don’t know someone that well and someone else comments on the weather. When I first moved to Sydney, away from a home where 70% […]

The Art of Making and Breaking Habits

A habit is defined as such; ‘a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up.’ I used to bite my nails every day; they were always bitten down past the skin, and they ached constantly. It was a bad habit I had until I was fifteen, and one that […]
