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.

Love Letter To Poland

polish winter

Being born as a first-generation Australian meant that my childhood was filled with traditions different to my Aussie classmates and my out-of-school activities weren’t your typical sport training and music lessons (although I did learn the piano growing up, with a Polish teacher of course). Instead, I learnt traditional Polish dancing which I would be

Another month down for 2017 and it almost feels as if time is speeding up with Halloween just next door and Christmas around the corner.

Not So Guilty Pleasures

Growing up, especially through the peer pressure of high school life, we’ve learnt what hobbies are more socially acceptable than others and it’s usually only when we become older that we start embracing our interests without worrying about the judgement of others – or it turns out your friends have similar guilty pleasures and you
