[Video] Wollongong, NSW | Travel Diary


A few weekends ago, I headed down to Wollongong, NSW for the day. I have visited the city a few times and rather than taking the same kind of photos again, I decided to attempt another travel diary. I really want to improve my videography skills and the best way to achieve this is through practice!


Also - thank you for all your kind words and comments in my previous post. I am quite a private person and despite sharing a lot of things online, there are many aspects of my life that I gloss over /  keep mum.

My Mental Health Journey Thus Far


I never thought that I would still be alive at this age. In fact, there was a point when I believed that I wouldn't see my 22nd birthday. But here I am today and it has been a long and tough journey.

My struggle with depression started during my final years of high school. It was as though a switch was flicked on; at the time the difference between 'before' and 'after' was so distinct. I never fully understood why or what had changed within. But I was changed.

It will get better once I finish university.
It will get better once I get an internship.
It will get better once I get a job.
It will get better once I .....

Finding the Beauty in Simplicity

It has taken me a while but I have finally learnt to appreciate and enjoy the little and, arguably, mundane things in my life. As much as I want to be adventuring on the weekends, I am now content to spend that time doing routine activities. These activities include, inter alia, grabbing a teh tarik from the food court, helping my boyfriend wash his car and even shopping for groceries to meal prep for the coming week.

Monthly Recap: September



September is synonymous with spring cleaning and I finally FINALLY got around to modifying my blog layout. This involved trawling through the CSS to fix all the little things that have irked me for months. I also attempted to tidy my labels / tags which resulted in a walk down memory lane. There were some things that I thought only happened relatively recently when in fact they occurred almost 4 years ago! An attempt was also made to consolidate all my photos across various computers onto my HDD which was an interesting experience. I stumbled upon some "artsy" selfies taken when I was 18 years old haha.
