Up until now, I was using this space to try and just put my writing out there in the hope of encouraging me to simply write more. So far that plan hasn’t been going so well, so I’ve decided to make this space more of a ‘Lifestyle’ blog as well as my rambling essays and poems.
A little about me for those playing along. My name is Julia, I am a mama to two magical little boys and we are in this parenting gig alone with me at the helm. Their dad bailed a fair while ago, not that he was ever really around when he was around. I moved from the city to a little seaside village 4 years ago and I still don’t really fit in here at all. I’m passionate about a lot of things, makes it hard to focus on what I really want to be when I grow up..
My main interests are writing, advocacy, health, aboriginal health and pregnancy/birth. So I guess if I can combine those and earn an income I will be happy. Barriers to this happening are plenty, not least being that with the new no jab, no pay legislation, my youngest will have to pay full fees for day-care, making working out of the home slightly more difficult. Before you abandon me for being an anti vax ‘nutter’ I do have a science degree, and I am not ‘Anti’ vaccinations, but that will be covered in a future blog post.
So heres to me writing, following my dreams and all that jazz. I hope somewhere along the way my ramblings connect with people making meaningful contributions to leave the world a better place for our children.
