Chapter Two: Hello Chicago

I’ve sat down at my computer several times over the last few weeks trying to write this post. I felt like I had a lot to say, and I was struggling to organize my thoughts into a concise post. This is my best attempt yet, so please bear with me. I moved back to theContinue reading “Chapter Two: Hello Chicago”

Reflection on Three Years in Sydney

Three years in Sydney… How have I been away for three years? I’ve reached a point where I’m not quite sure if three years is long time or short time to be living abroad.  Depends who is asking. In some ways it feels like ages. When I moved here I thought I would stay forContinue reading “Reflection on Three Years in Sydney”

5 Tips for Planning a Sydney Meetup

I’ve been known to organise a few events here and there, but more often I’m attending events. I attend a lot of events actually. Sometimes, when I’m really busy, it’s almost every night of the week.

You’ll see the irony in minute here, letContinue reading “Getting Focused on Dividing our Attention”

Blogging for a Cause

I love storytelling through blogs. I wish I told more meaningful stories here actually (need to work on that). Blogging is one way you can give a voice to a person, group or organisation that might not have their own voice online yet. I like shout-outs and links on Twitter, but those short-forms posts don’tContinue reading “Blogging for a Cause”

Sydney Life: Chapter Two

A lot has changed after two years abroad living in Australia. I’m starting to say stuff like “fortnightly” instead of “bi-weekly” and I don’t struggle to understand other accents (most of the time anyway). I loved Sydney the day from the day I first arrived, but now I can say that I know Sydney. ItContinue reading “Sydney Life: Chapter Two”
