Social media intervenes to stop a suicide attempt– even as she posts a status update from the hospital room that she ended up in, the trolls continue to make her life tough.
Little Marionette coffee. 258 Abercrombie St, Darlington. Many years ago when I was studying at Sydney Uni, this part of Darlington was a run of shops, not cafes. Now there are a number of different spots to grab a coffee, but the one with the most promising supply of beans is this one. From a […]
Arte Caffe coffee. 325a Glebe Point Rd, Glebe. Far from Broadway, this place is a local deli with a rich variety of meats and cheeses on offer, and many other gourmet treats. If you’re looking for some food, there are a range of panini and other sandwiches on offer – this is my preferred stop […]

You’re stuck for a period of time, doing something necessary (travelling to a destination), and you’re physically removed from a range of responsibilities (housework, child […]
Nikita coffee. 179 Leura Mall, Leura. Just when I thought I knew everything that Leura has to offer, I walked past this place – simple decor and furniture, minimalist menu, kitchen out the back. Though they were still getting the kinks out of the ordering system, there was a positive attitude and a desire to […]
