Gorgeous juniors, incredible inters and spectacular seniors. Special solos, dramatic duos and one or two… graceful groups. Are the alliterations getting annoying? Yeah, they sounded cooler in my head. What I’m trying to say is on Sunday, Dance Explosion had their Choreography Competition Fundraiser. But I’m not lying about those above descriptions. I feel like … Continue reading Let’s Do it in a Dress!
Imagine this; The cement in your back yard has cracks beneath your feet. The walls and ceiling have cracks too. In winter, rain spills through the roof and you have to use buckets to catch the dripping until you can get it fixed. Doors jam when you try to open or close them, and toilets … Continue reading Sunshine College deserves better
I’ve been contemplating since it all began on whether or not I should post my thoughts on the recent leadership spill. I’ve been back and forth and I’m very aware that I’m about three weeks late to the game. But ultimately, I was inspired by the words of Greens senator Richard Di Natali in his … Continue reading Could not have put it better, senator Di Natali!
1 in 5 people have a disability… What? How did I not know this! Melbourne Fashion Week is here. While it’s not an event that I’ve ever been interested in, when I saw the catwalk featuring people with disabilities on the news earlier this week I damn nearly jumped out of my chair. "Access to … Continue reading Disability on the Runway
Brought to you by: Sarah Hyland (because why the hell not?) PRO: Parking is lit! I’m not going to lie, one of the most obvious (yet greatest) advantages of having a disability is the disabled parking spot outside the supermarket, and the benefits of holding a companion card. Oh, and what about the special consideration … Continue reading Pros and Cons of Disability
I read this post that I wrote last year and it just hit me real hard. One of the best things I've ever written (if I do say so myself). I hope it helps you too. This post is as much for me, as it is for you. Loneliness is a very difficult feeling to … Continue reading You are not alone (re-posted)
I would like to give a big shout out to my wonderfully talented little brother: Mr Harry Forsberg! (If you haven't already noticed, my blog has had a recent upgrade). Harry has kindly leant me his skills in drawing up the design behind the new site logo. I gave him a small brief, but he … Continue reading SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!
Hmph. I am quite exhausted this week to say the least. But if there’s anything I love doing which releases an ounce of happiness, its writing. I don’t have much of an outline for what I want to talk to you about. Just a topic that’s been weighing on my mind. We’ll see where this … Continue reading Defining Character
The room is dimly lit. A couple of people rush past and I hear footsteps behind me. I hear whispers and finally Wendy says “Shhh”. Everyone falls silent. She calls my name and I turn, only my head, to the left where she stands in the wings. “Good luck” she whispers with her thumbs pointing … Continue reading ‘The Dream’ (re-posted)
Feminism is a funny topic to me. Mainly because I’ve always grown up on feminist values but as I’ve gotten older I’ve learnt about other views regarding feminism in a completely different light which utterly baffles me! When did FEMINISM become such a dirty word? When did being a FEMINIST become such a dirty … Continue reading What are you if not a feminist?
