It's amazing the potential humans can grow into when they're not confined by the walls of school, by expectations and assumptions and a desire to be "cool." It's funny to look at people you used to spend near every day with and realise you are completely different people now - you have grown into separate … Continue reading potential
I started this morning with a Mumma Rozza breakfast; breakfast of champions. Chocolate and a cup of tea, for the day that should have been your 56th birthday. Amidst the new year buzz and the phenomenon that is Marie Kondo, clearing out is always on the cards. Drawer after drawer I have emptied and now … Continue reading 56.
Looking back on a year feels weird and nostalgic and often a little empty. Where did it go? What in god's name did I fit into those 365 days? The most momentous times of the year jump into my head, like the highest of highs, where so much writing fell from my fingertips and I … Continue reading 2018.

Confident in who and what I am, lonely, comfortable in what I have, kind, privileged, angry, depressed, yet more happy than not. Trusting … Continue reading the complexities

She performed a spell to clean it up and stood out of her chair, stretching in an almost cat-like way. Walking toward … Continue reading Harry Potter fan fic
I woke up today and you were there. Didn’t feel any different, it wasn’t wrong, it was as it should be. You’ve been here for the past five years. I walked out and you were sitting on the couch, slowly eating your weetbix. “Morning Kel,” as you laugh at my dishevelled hair and odd pyjama … Continue reading alternate reality
The design of the home was “open-plan.” Rooms were only separated from each other with a thin white wall that didn’t reach the entirety of the room; the staircase leading up to the second floor was glass, and the second floor was an entirely open space with a glass floor. Light burned through the windows … Continue reading the artist and his muse
It was only last year, as a 23 year old, that I noticed my coping mechanisms were not healthy nor was I okay.
