A few months ago an amazing opportunity fell in my lap. Two of my best buddies needed a developer to help them out with some projects and asked if I could lend a hand. Super honoured and excited to work with these gals again, I naturally said yes. It went well for the first few weeks but soon I started to burn out.
Working full time and freelancing quickly turned into “all work and no play make Gennah something something”. I had to make a decision. Would I say no, no, no to another freelancing gig and continue a steady pay check at a great company with a fantastic team (I gush!)? Or have a go at my all time dream of working in my pyjamas, choosing my hours and have constant puppy in my lap? Well… I chose to dive in to the unknown. This is my first week freelancing…
Remember sitting around the camp-fire as a child, roasting a marshmallow & pressing it between a sandwich of chocolate and Graham cracker? … okay Me neither, it’s better known as an American tradition but I’ve never been one to shy away from the genius that is the American food. To celebrate Pi day, I attempted a pintrest inspired treat, a delicious pie done in the style of S’mores to bring in to work.

Do you ever feel so caught up in your life you forget to take time to appreciate the little things? It’s not until you have time to pause that you can stop and respond to what is going on around you. Making little reminders can help us find these moments. Let’s put these notes in
Well… Summer beat up spring then took it’s place in line. What a Jerk! We saw maybe a week of spring-kind of weather – sandwiched between winter and summer days. So when life gives you lemons, take yourself to the shopping centre and buy some cute outfits, cos… LEMONS + CLOTHING(Logic) = #dope! There are
Stuck for party ideas? Why not take advantage of the bargain bins shops are filling up with fluro outfits no one bought these last seasons! I’m talking about planning a fluro party, a glow in the dark themed extravaganza! Finally, those electric pink dungarees will have their time!
One of my favourite things to do as a kid was turning out the lights. My room was covered in glow in the dark stickers. I had the whole universe in my bedroom and it looked cool as hell. Even these days I have a pull towards glowy things that stand out so the temptation to go fluro didn’t really take much convincing.Read more
I’ve never considered myself a lucky or ‘tinny’ person when it’s come to games of chance, but when Gallagher pointed out a lone dollar on the floor of the pub this afternoon, I jumped at the chance to pick it up. “It’s a filthy floor dollar” he said. “Most currency is filthy, plus this is the dollar that will bring me in a winnings!” I said as I picked up the dollar off the ground. I’m just classy like that. We were at the Casino so the plan was to visit the keno station, then the cashiers booth before we left.
2.5 pints later and I am pretty damn merry. We’d eaten and celebrated a good mate’s birthday, said our goodbyes and were heading towards the pokies to make my lucrative pit stop. Read more
Deciding on a dog breed was not an easy choice. The approval to get a dog had been granted by the landlord but it had to be a small dog. I had a handful of ideas; a Dachshund, Maltese, Pug, Pomeranian… so much cute! Deciding on Chihuahuas was kind of easy though, they really aren’t that bad!
I spent hours on YouTube watching the different breeds. I wanted to see their crazy qualities. If I was going to be living with a little dog face for the next 10-15 years, wanted to know what I was getting in to.Read more
Excited is probably the best and only way I can describe how I feel about Hey You Guys existing. It’s been at the tips of our fingers for so long and finally being able to touch it, through my keyboard… well it just blows my mind. I’m looking forward to the sharedom of all my ‘thank
