The bug, the bachelor, a career change and the Aussie coat of arms  

Well, it's been an interesting time, to say the least! That's as far as I'm going to go to try and sum up a world pandemic... For me, it's been challenging, but I'm grateful to have much in the way of support and resources. Thanks to the Australian government's Jobkeeper scheme I was able to pay the rent and continue studying through 2020, and I finally graduated in 2021 with a Bachelor of Creative Media with a major in Sound and minor in Radio. This year I quit regular live music gigs in favour of a day…

This creative life! 

The creative life is certainly challenging. There are doubts, self-sabotage, perfectionism. But there's also joy, beauty, and deep personal satisfaction. The road might be short and easy for some, but probably long and winding for more. My hand is up for category two!

But it's not so wonderful for everyone, as we all know from the stories we see on the news and social media, and just from seeing what happens to the people in our lives. The…Read more

Suesweek - a weekly update/musepost 

'Suesweek'. Ya know, like Newsweek. News...week... *grins-at-the-likely-groans* Haha yep, in true Sue style I've begun my new weekly updates with a bad pun. No apologies - I like puns. They go well with my terrible jokes. :)

So, I thought it was rather remiss of me to not have posted any blogs on here since my 'No New Year's resolutions' post. But then, the lack of blog posts since then is also kind of poetic... :)

Now that I can definitely say I haven't stuck to any potential New Year's resolutions, I can…Read more
