It has been a while since Lil and I caught up for lunch! I saw her twice since our last lunch. Once, when we went, with James and Brandon, to see the band Anberlin on their final world tour; then to join her and her friends for her celebratory dinner for becoming a lawyer (yay!).

But it has been a while since we properly caught up, and I didn’t stay for the whole dinner because I had to return to our work Hackathon. She was a bit short on time yesterday, but we caught up for lunch anyway! [...]

Today I am interviewing my good friend Seb, who takes pretty much all of my Fashion Friday photographs. I have known him since we started university and were in the same classes. I have written his name as “Lord Seb” because of his entry in my phone’s contact list. To make things interesting, a while ago I had asked people what details they wanted to put for their contact information in my phone. I found myself adding titles to each person, and Seb became Lord Seb.

He has written a “short” autobiography:

If I were to have an achnemesis, it would be bios. I never know what to say in them, you know? Anyway, I’m Sebastian, friends call me Seb and more recently Sebbu and sometimes Potato because I LOVE potatoes (and maybe look as delicious as one, hah), originally from Peru but living in Sydney, Australia for the last ten years. I love music, but can’t neither play or write about it, but I do take photos of it from time to time. And things make me feel old even though I’m really not.

A couple of weeks ago Andrew from Simple Loose Leaf sent me a box of tea to review. I was really excited to receive the box because I wanted to try some new tea. I absolutely adore tea. Simple Loose Leaf is a tea subscription service. It ships to the United States, Canada and Australia, for $15 a month. You get five bags of tea to try per month, and they are quite generous portions as well. Shipping to Canada is an extra $5, and to Australia is an extra $10. [...]

Bob Marley isn’t my name. I don’t even know my name yet. —Bob Marley

I’ve gone solely by Georgie for the past few years. I haven’t always been called Georgie, but it’s always been me. My parents have always called me Georgie, apart from when my mum is a little bit more than annoyed and calls me by my full name.

I have heard stories from people who changed their names because their names were just “not them”. Famously, television host Andrew Günsberg changed his name from Andrew to Osher. A lot of celebrities change their name once they become famous. I’m sure Elton John didn’t want to be known as Reginald Dwight, and Iggy Azalea didn’t like her birth name, Amethyst. But that aside, Georgie is more or less a nickname for Georgina.

The same way you’d call Nicholas, Nick; Timothy, Tim; Benjamin, Ben; Samuel, Sam. [...]

It’s been such a crazy week-and-a-half that I can barely remember being organised in the past week. I mean, I haven’t felt the slightest bit organised, but at the same time, I’ve gotten all my work done at work. I don’t remember the last time I wrote a blog post that wasn’t slightly rushed.

I also hope you liked my poem Forever sunshine that I wrote a couple of days ago. It’s been a while since I’ve written a poem but I just felt so overwhelmed with happiness lately, it was like a spark flew off in my head. I actually wrote it as I was on my way to the bus stop, and felt compelled to post it immediately.

Today’s outfit is one that I occasionally mix bits and pieces of. I particularly like to wear the leggings with other long shirts, and I like to wear the shoes and shirt with other different styled pieces. This is a more casual look, woohoo. [...]
