Comedy Austin

Comedy Austin

.I think I mentioned it previously, but one of my favourite things about Austin is that there is always something going on. A commodity that I never took advantage of in Glasgow, were the numerous comedy shows. With all the stress and anxiety of a move, comedy has...

America Update

America Update

Hello! This is my first post on the shiny new blog. Nothing has changed, I'll still be updating on a Tuesday, it's just a new face! This weekend Mike and I decided it has been too long since we were in open space, with nothing but green and trees. We were spoiled...

Rupi Kaur

Rupi Kaur

A few weeks ago, I wrote a short blog post about Mike introducing me to EDM (Electronic Dance Music) and ticking off some of his music bucket list. Well, this time it was my turn! For those of you who don't know, I have been a fan of Rupi Kaur since falling in love...

What’s your Taco place?

What’s your Taco place?

After moving to Texas in a whirlwind of wedding confetti and visa requirements, we appeared for the first day of introductions [at the university] slightly dishevelled and fighting jet lag. Unaware of its importance, we were handed a small, silver bundle labelled...

My Introduction to EDM

My Introduction to EDM

Electronic dance music [EDM] has never been my forte but, like most teenagers, I enjoyed a good boogie in the club and do recognise some prominent DJs. Take a huge jump to the opposite end of the scale and, in comparison, we had one surreal EDM week. Mike managed to...

Women and Their Work

Women and Their Work

I thought I would talk a little about the fantastic nonprofit organisation that I have been spending the majority of my time at in Austin. Prior to moving, I began the very basic 'google search' of volunteering opportunities in Austin. Selfishly, I wanted to volunteer...

Flat pack furniture and bank accounts.

Flat pack furniture and bank accounts.

A couple of big things have happened this week. The first, and most exciting, is we finally had our bed frame delivered. Wahoo! It was a little like deja vu for Mike and I as, for those of you who don't know us, the majority of our furniture when we first moved in...

Do y’all know what a ‘comforter’ is?

Do y’all know what a ‘comforter’ is?

A comforter? To add to my list of things I do not understand in America; bedding (again, not the most profound observation but nonetheless I shall continue). As part of our adventure we, of course, had to secure a place to live. As previously noted America do not do...
