Todoist – how on earth did I survive without you in my life?!

For those of you who don’t know, ToDoist is an application that is a free (with some “pay for” premium features) to-do list application. It has revolutionised the way I handle things I have to do – both at home and at work. I honestly don’t know how I was able to get everything I needed to do done before… Read more »

Impostor Phenomenon/Syndrome – also known as “I thought it was only me who felt like that!”

Attended a talk last year, held by Geek Girl Dinners, here in Brisbane. After investigating, the topic was something that I really wanted to hear about and it. The title of the dinner was “Impostor Phenomenon”. I’d heard of this term before, but after seeing the post advertising the dinner, I went off and did a bit of research of… Read more »

The “Oh Shit” kit

      No Comments on The “Oh Shit” kit

Had a request from someone who wanted to know what was actually inside my “Oh Shit” kit (as mentioned in my “Looking back on *the* wedding” post)…which makes sense. I really should’ve provided this in the first place! So, to elaborate, my own personal “Oh Shit” kit contained the following (and it was all contained in a small makeup bag… Read more »

Looking back on *the* wedding

      1 Comment on Looking back on *the* wedding

So, as you would all know, back in October 2013, Alex and I got hitched. It was pretty darn awesome. A fair bit of my inspiration came from an amazing website called Offbeat Bride and as they had a section for submitting your wedding, once it was all done and dusted, I jumped at the chance. Well, they published my… Read more »

Screw News Years Resolutions – I’m going to give 30 before 30 a go!

So, my New Years Resolutions for 2013 didn’t go down as well as planned. Quite a few of the major ones failed *spectacularly* (if I do say so myself…you can read all about it here). So instead of duplicating the same fabulousness in 2014, I have decided to change tack. I have decided that instead of New Years Resolutions, I’m… Read more »

2013 Resolutions…an update on the year that was.

So back at the beginning of this year, I stupidly went and made some New Years Resolutions (you can read the original post here). Looking back, I was optimistic and full of enthusiasm…and then the year wore on, and things got in the way, and plans got made that weren’t on the list (read: holy shit WEDDING!) which meant that… Read more »

The wedding ring saga

      1 Comment on The wedding ring saga

As those of you know, I had a rather unfortunate incident regarding the ordering of my wedding ring. Now, I’m not a bridezilla – I’ve been extremely calm through this whole process, I’ve maintained my composure because, after all, it’s just more day in our lives. Sure it’s an important one, but it’s just one day. The ring, however, has… Read more »

Tech.Ed 2013 – Shout Outs

      No Comments on Tech.Ed 2013 – Shout Outs

At this point, I need to do a few shout outs – the first being to GSX for their Tech.Ed ticket competition and for picking me as their winner. Freakin’. Awesome. Was blown away by the fact that I’d won – in fact, I was speechless for the hour or two after getting my email! Seriously, huge thanks to you… Read more »

Driving as a young woman in a tiny car

The words above strike fear into the heart of many. Young woman driver. Small car. Pretty much a death trap on wheels at high speed. Based on a few experiences I’ve had over the last few days (and over the last few years) I wanted to share my opinions (and they are purely my opinions, so feel free to pick… Read more »
