I write a lot. I have nearly two Masters degrees, one in Creative Writing, and yet, I absolutely loathe needing to write Covering Letters for jobs. But, given that I am a writer, I thought it might be worthwhile to discuss the relationship between the jobs world and writing. What is a Covering Letter? Covering … Continue reading I hate writing Covering Letters!
It's never a birthday around here without a dose of drama chucked into the mix. Normally, I never really plan anything for my birthday other than going out for dinner, but this year, since it was a special level-up, I wanted to do something FUN - so I made my parents go bowling with me. Step back, … Continue reading My 30th Birthday
So it's around a year since evallone.com happened and I'm thrilled with how my little site has developed in that time. Initially pre-domain name it did start as a blog of a recent graduate trying to find decent work in this pre-apocalyptic world, then evolved, backtracked and evolved some more! Tomorrow marks a year since … Continue reading Blogoversary!
I know things have been quite here for a few weeks, but everything all hit at once; the final assessment for uni, getting ill, birthdays, and working. Everything has been going well though, I spent little pockets of free time in May to work on my assessment so I didn't have to rush much at … Continue reading Tumbleweed
So work, real life, and laziness has prevented me from updating in a while. I have a bunch of great ideas for new blog posts that I need to at some point write and schedule... but I've been holding myself back. Why? Who knows! I've started the 15-minute-method, like Pomodoro but shorter, for commitment-phobes like … Continue reading MIA

I'm drained. Zonked. Gone. I've had a few days off work just with how the scheduling goes, and had all these wild plans for what I'd do with all that free time. And yet, it's been cold, stormy, wet, and blah. They probably sound like excuses and maybe they are but I'm so tired. I've … Continue reading Battling the sleepies
Can you believe we're nearly three weeks into January and the new year? Who's broken/abandoned their New Year's Resolutions already? I haven't abandoned mine, just been a bit slower about them than I would have liked. Pretty much since the start of January my food issues have gotten worse, so I'm back to square one … Continue reading Tempus Fugit
I barely slept the night before Thursday 14th December as I knew I had an interview at 10am that morning. I had prepared, and had had ten days to prepare my presentation for it, but still I was unsettled about my impending performance and how it would be judged. I dragged myself up, buzzed and … Continue reading A funny thing happened a few weeks ago…
