On Mental Health

It's a topic that's becoming less stigmatised, but mental health is still something that people talk about in hushed tones. Unlike telling people about that time you broke your leg while skateboarding, talking about your recent panic attack or your growing depression still isn't really seen as accepted conversation.

Why I’m Glad I Moved Out of Home for Uni

For those who are unaware, I am not from Melbourne. I am from Perth (although born in Hobart, so if you're Tasmanian and reading this, hello cousin!). Unlike some other countries, it's less common in Australia to pick a university in another state and move out of home than it is to stay in your home...

2018: No I’m not a doctor yet

2018, it's almost over. I'm getting a head start on the whole new year, new me thing by restarting the blog (for a second time, I know) before the year ends.

We humans are very prideful creatures,... Continue Reading →

8 Things I’ve Learned At The Hospital

You'd hope I'd learn things at the hospital, considering that's why I go. But apart from the expected things, like how to work out why patients are sick, what to do if they are sick, and other medical stuff, I've learned some important lessons. So, since I'm so benevolent, I'm going to share these tidbits of... Continue Reading →

Wait, You Have a Blog?

Yes, yes I do. And it's been lazing around, growing fat for far too long. No more shall my voice be quietened, no more shall the important things I have to say remain unsaid. Like Jesus from the tomb (rather good timing on my part), the blog shall be resurrected once more. I hear the beginnings of... Continue Reading →
