The day before 2017, I reflected on the year that’s past, and the word that came to mind was Storms.
It was initially quite negative, but sitting here with a hangover in 2017, they were brilliant storms and I have enjoyed most of them.
For the first time in my life I performed a stand up solo show with 50 minutes of content at the Melbourne International Comedy festival. Hives and all, the storms were much needed. TV was a big thing this year too.
For the first time 11 years I went back to school….and damn it… They were brilliant storms. You know in the movies you see big waves and you can’t see in front of you, and then you see the rain disappear and then sun. Magically.
I left my Community Development job in July after 8 years. I started Ubering. Money will always be hard. Minimalise.
I am always so surprised how much travelling I do. California with my mum, and the image of Yosemite National Forest still takes my breath away. MOFO in Tassie were intense stimulation and Palangkaraya slowed down my brain and gave me retrospect of the green world, and how we live in it.
This morning I woke up and looked at my instagram account and saw all the beautiful people who have graced me with their dancing, smiles and laughter. The friends who have held me together when I fell apart, and those you let me fall so I can learn more of myself.
Emotionally 2016 was a horrible year, and I will try to adjust the sail and make sure I am steering this boat into my horizon. I am in love and can’t wait for our journeys to continue collide and float together.
My little sister got married to a lovely man, and our family has grown from 4 to 50 people. My other little sister is a DJ in Melbourne. And my mum looks more beautiful every day. I am grateful.
