Standup Realities

I’ve wanted to be a comedian my whole life. When I was in primary school, we had a “Night of the Notables” where we all had to dress up as, and do a presentation on, our idol. I chose Eric Idle from Monty Python fame. I like to think that I chose him because of how much of an inspiration Monty Python was on me and not because his name is similar to “Idol”. I was also the only child in drag, which probably says something about who I am as a person. After high school, I lost all of my creativity and wasn’t feeling fulfilled. That’s when my friend signed me up for a stand up comedy night. At first, I loved it. Getting a laugh is such a huge rush and I wanted to chase that feeling. However, life got in the way and I forgot about stand up for a few years. When I got back into ...

Thinking beyond exams to a road less travelled

With exams just around the corner, the stress of study and the impending doom of exams has the capacity to consume some students. Additionally, some are, or they will be, hounded with the inevitable questioning of what to do with all the time that they suddenly have on their hands over summer. Australians are very familiar with New Zealand, Bali, Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Perhaps it’s time consider one of Australia’s often-forgotten neighbours as a source of distraction and adventure. The Kokoda Track between Kokoda and Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea has an infamous place in Australia’s collective conscious. It was the closest Australia came to fighting on our own soil during World War II when the Japanese landed on the northern Papua New Guinean coast and began to make thei...

My Week with Kim

From the first time I saw Kim Jong Il’s circular face splashed across the media I was intrigued by the socialist, dystopian society he was in command. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, or North Korea as it is commonly known to the outside world; was established after the Japanese Colonial Empire annexed the Korean Peninsula in 1910; and the Soviet Union occupied the area above the 38th parallel. North Korea remained a distant mystery to me until I watched Vice’s three part documentary series on the autocratic state which opened my mind to the potential of visiting the last remaining truly socialist regime; I was hooked. Travelling to North Korea was hot on my agenda and became a matter of when instead of if; with the sole entry point of Beijing an expensive 14 hour flight from Mel...
