Things That Defined My Childhood

Every generation has their own series of toys and characters that became obsessions during their childhood years. Your social ranking would be defined by your knowledge of a franchise or the size of your collection. These days it seems Fortnite and Ooshies reign supreme in the Australian ecosystem while my past was dotted with a

Geek To Gladiator: Reset

Here I am, 3 months from my previous update and life has definitely got in the way of my plans. Of course, the idea of a lifestyle change was that I’d be able to retain my fitness and health regardless of the curve-balls of life, but my discipline fell through quicker than I expected. With

Geek To Gladiator: April

High hopes for April turned into a cruisey month filled with less exercise and more treats than anticipated. After the first half of April didn’t go too well, I let myself have a break. And you know what happened? Not much, really. I didn’t gain 10 kilos, I haven’t lost all my cardio endurance, and

Geek To Gladiator: March

So March was interesting. I took more photos which means I can actually remember some of the things I did over the past month. March was by no means perfect, but it involved a few changes that helped with a more active lifestyle and found something to help with my health in general. At this

Geek To Gladiator: February

First of all, I managed to take almost no photos throughout February so I’ll be summing up my month with GIFs rather than #foodporn pics. Now that I’ve gone through my little disclaimer, I can get to the nitty-gritty. February was the first month of my challenge and, as some things go, it was equal

Geek To Gladiator: The Beginning

Here I go again. It seems I have a knack for writing about my new year’s resolutions a full month after the initial celebrations. Luckily I always manage to wrap my head around the craziness of everything just in time for the Lunar New Year. Maybe my body is just attuned that way? Last year

Return Of The Hiker

Life always seems to get in the way. Career, exercise, studying? Hobbies take a step back when you get caught up with the ‘important’ things in life and soon you find months passing by before you start investing in yourself again. Whether you just got home from work and find it’s easier to wind down

Dancing Royalty

Whether it’s getting down at the club on the weekend or taking a lesson from the professionals, dancing has always been a huge part of my life. It’s the ‘exercise that doesn’t feel like exercise’ although busting a move for an hour straight will definitely get my sweat trickling. The benefit of living in the

Peace & Serenity

Australia’s a country surrounded by water and it’s easy to boast about its golden beaches, turquoise seas and thieving seagulls; although I’m not sure whether I should be bragging about that last one. As a Sydney-sider, I’ve had my fair share of trips to the beach whether it was a relaxing day in Wollongong or

Adventure Awaits

When you’re scrolling through Instagram, it seems that all your friends and their cousins are travelling the world while you’re just happy that it’s warm enough to go for a swim at the beach. My social media feeds have recently received an upsurge in photos of Japan and inspired by my worldly friends, rather than
