A year or so ago, my best friend Laura and I started a project called Long Distance Creationship. It fizzled out pretty quickly (oh the perils of unsustainable positivity) but now that we have a ridiculous amount of free time on our hands, starting it up again feels like a good idea.
The whole concept was to set each other small creative challenges and push ourselves to produce more consistently. I would write and Laura would draw and paint. Some pretty cool stuff came out of it (more from Laura than from me, who really didn’t get much done at all, surprise surprise!) and so I’m excited to see where we’re headed next!

Well, we’re having quite the time of it, aren’t we?
As of midday today (Monday), I’m once again jobless. The government finally called for a shutdown of non-essential venues and, unfortunately (though not unexpectedly), a bowling alley and laser tag arena falls under that particular umbrella.
I’m sad about it, mostly because of the whole, y’know, bills to pay thing. But also because I really loved that job. I’m hopeful that when we reopen I’ll be able to jump straight back in, but for now I’m applying for just about anything (me and thousands of other Brisbane hospo kids), learning a few new skills, and trying to flog a few bits and pieces online.
So what about all the non-work stuff? Well, I’ve got a few ideas – for when I’m not re-watching Community for the eleventh time, that is.
