It should come as no secret that I am a MASSIVE fan of any go-getting gal killing it in their field. But anyone originally from Brisbane holds a special place in my heart. That is precisely why I was so excited to be invited to Alex Ward’s No Flirting show as part of Brisbane Comedy Festival.
In case you missed it, Business Chicks brought #9ToThrive to Brisbane this year. Can I get a ‘hell yeah’?!?!! I was like a 14-year-old girl find out Justin Bieber was coming to town. I sat anxiously waiting to gain ‘early bird access’ to purchase a ticket, picked out my outfit in anticipation and happily sat waiting for the doors to open on the day.
If you asked me as a 5-year-old, a 10-year-old or even a 20-year-old you would have heard one of three answers; vet, school teacher, cafe owner. Not in a million years would I have thought I would be a General Manager for an agency. And I definitely would not have thought I would have found myself in this role at 22-years-old.
Today I finally returned First, We Make The Beast Beautiful by Sarah Wilson to my local library. I am not joking when I say I am 100% expecting a $50 late fee from the library. I hung onto this book forever. Why? I found this book to be like a comforting, warm hug from your mum after a long and shitty day. It made me feel like someone else understands my brain and the highs and lows I have experienced with my own mental health.
