The Evolving Space – Public Writing Reflection BCM241

For this blog post, I am reflecting on my public writing practice over the past two years since I began, particularly focussing on the composition of my blog site and posts as a curated environment.

If I Lived My Life By My Calendar

This past week has been hectic and rather draining. My dear Grandma, my last grandparent, passed away. She held on for as long as she could, running a marathon as her strength gradually lessened.

I am always making mistakes in their eyes when speaking of and dealing with people. The banned words at my dinner table are “holistic approach”. When these words are mentioned a cringe is found on every non-social… Continue reading We Are All Ethnographic Researchers – #PeopleWatchingClub

Televisions Role In Developing A Perception Of Reality & Truth: An Interview

For this blog post, I interviewed (recorded with permission) my 60yr old uncle born in 1957 about his childhood experience with the introduction of television. He was born in Port Hedland in an isolated town in the remote Pilbara region of WA where food would only come by ship just once every month. Although television… Continue reading Televisions Role In Developing A Perception Of Reality & Truth: An Interview
