Year 2

DAMN GINA!  We’re half way through the year and it’s taken me this long to crank something out.  It’s not cuz nothing’s been happening.  I’ve just been lost on what to write about!  I thought I should mark the occasion with a piece even if it’s a simple one.  Since my last post I’ve managed to […]

Yahtzee

Went a lil “How Stella How Got Her Groove Back” on you the last time I wrote an entry and I can honestly say things have been on the up and up since then!  After 7 months out here, there are clear signs that I’m well and truly settled into Sydney: 1.  Falling asleep in the middle […]

Time Out

Meet Josephina and Whitney. I’ve known Josephina [Boofty] for almost 10 years now through our studies.  We never had class together – I was at law school while she was on her way to becoming a chartered accountant but we were both heavily involved in the Auckland University Pacific Island Students Association.  That era right […]
