talk it out

I’m often hurtling through life at a hectic pace, throwing myself into my work, friendships, creative projects and outdoor adventures with enthusiasm. But the other day I had a meltdown. A series of concerns – some big, some small – piled up beyond what I could handle. I could feel myself starting to crack up. I was sitting at my desk trying to write but I couldn’t concentrate. My thoughts came down in a deluge – hard and fast and uncontainable. I was getting beaten up by my own brain! All at once I wanted to yell and cry and crawl into bed and go to sleep. I did cry some, but I also messaged two good friends letting them know what I was worrying about and simply tapping my thoughts…

a trip to outer space

Joy has always had a wild fascination for the outdoors. She grew up in a bustling coastal city in the UK, in an immigrant Asian household. There was a huge focus on education, but when her parents were working Joy was given free rein to explore. Her bum was often glued to her bicycle seat while she rode for miles – inspecting insects, trees and rivers – and gazing up at the stars dotted across the night sky. This helped cultivate her curiosity, not only in space, but the natural world. Now she rides her dual sport motorcycle, rock climbs for fun and produces videos for a living in the US – at the Goddard Space Flight Center with the National Aeronautical Space Administration (NASA). What does your work involve? The…

behind the vlog with jess conte

You might remember a video of a dad and son making music together in their kitchen. Both wearing sunnies, the dad plays the trombone to the beat of his son vigorously slamming the oven door while headbanging. Guess what? That’s Jess’s dad and younger brother, Toby. When Jess uploaded that video to her YouTube channel, the views skyrocketed! “My channel quickly hit 1,000 subscribers, then 2,000 subscribers. I couldn’t believe it! I didn’t really know much about YouTube at the time. Back then, I just loved creating videos for my friends and family,” she says. She now has a following of 2.2 million subscribers on her channel, where she posts song covers, introspective videos and challenges. “There is so much negativity online, so I love having my own little space on the internet.” Not…

that awkward moment

I suddenly drop my card onto the ground and I swear I hear a chorus of sighs from the people growing impatient behind me. I jump on the bus for university and I tap my Go card. Only, there’s no buzz. I tap again and again... nothing. A line of people builds up behind me as I’m trying to get my wretched card to work. Why won’t it register? A young girl behind me taps me on my shoulder and points at my card. “Yes, it isn’t working,” I manage, feeling beads of sweat on my forehead. “What’s the hold up, kid?” The bus driver turns in his seat to address me. “Young lady, look at your card.” My heart falls. It’s not my Go card staring back at me. It’s…
