Been an interesting year…so here’s the cricket highlights:
I wrote regularly for Froth! I continue on a somewhat self-serving quest to bring bookish types to beer, and beer nerds to not mind awkward book nerds so much by matching books and beer each month. You can see some of the multi-sensory deliciousness over on my Instagram account. I’ll eventually scan and upload what I’ve written and post here, BUT if you have any interest in beer, you should subscribe because so much of the mag is actual fun for all the families!
I made close mates. One of them very sadly lives in a completely different city to me, but we collaborated and are just awaiting illustrations on a zine dedicated to the Bloody Mary.
Some amazing places accepted my poetry and creative non-fiction prose, and I performed as a singer/musician in two separate performances in Melbourne. This means I also need to update my CV, and the ‘about’ page on this blog. Go buy some copies of Concrete Queers, and F*EMS zines, please!
I’m catsitting for another good friend I made this year, and while my living situation has been far from stable and ideal, crushes still want to hang around me/stick around, so that’s been nice too. Sometimes they’re impressed by my cooking, ha!
Cricket highlight conclusion: been a rough trot but yielded many good habits for next year, personally and professionally. People keep mistaking me for a being a vegetarian (?!?!) and next year, I’m going to make an effort to eat and prepare more vegan food. I drink a lot less alcohol now that I can actually (for the most part) sleep! It’s been great rediscovering coffee, and drinking more tea than ever, as always. I still want more cats, tea, and good lit(erature).
