2020 is already going to be one of my most exciting years yet! My first, full calendar year out of academia, I’m hoping to exercise some of the freedom that I have now and learn to adapt to the freedom I used to have in school. But most importantly on my list, I’m hoping that this year contains a lot of travel and a lot … Continue reading Lots to Look Forward to in 2020
In the interest of full transparency, Meatbodies weren’t the headliner of the show I went to. Psychadelic Porn Crumpets, from Perth, AUS, were the band on the ticket.
