I am crafty, and love to knit, spin yarn, and sew. I also love growing our own food.
Music-wise, I listen to a lot of metal these days. My fave bands are Mastodon, Gojira and Between the Buried and Me but I love keeping up with new stuff too.
I live on land stolen from the Wurundjuri people, and believe that reconcilation should begin with treaty.
My account is locked but request a follow - unless you're a TERF or bigot, in which case you can get fucked.
I live with migraine and while not chronically ill, my attack frequency is defined as episodic - which means between 8-15 days per month. This means I don't qualify for a range of subsidised medication. As a result, I got organised and am on the board of Australia's only migraine patient organisation and am an advocate.
Pop-culturally, I love sci-fi (esp The Expanse) and am on the edges of the A Song of Ice and Fire fandom.
I'm a PhD student in Melbourne, Australia. I work on localising the Sustainable Development Goals in rural areas, and my sub-fields range from human geography and scenario development through to large scale dynamic modelling.
I'm a first gen Australian white cis woman with Hungarian heritage. My partner @cefiar and I are guardians of two ageing tortoiseshell burmese cats named Salome and Chrissy and we toot pics of them using #BurmeseLyf
First up gonna turn this into two cat blankets to get the fabric outta my stash crate and into something useful.

Sophie’s not handling the arrival of Oscar the kitten well. She’s taken to the catnip. #cats
Had a really positive supervisor meeting this morning, which is good because I have felt extremely scattered all week from my (hopefully gone now) five day migraine.
I am about to tick over into the start of Year 3 of my PhD, which means I have to do an Annual Review. As part of this, I can discuss possible impediments to my progress as well as what impact Covid has had. So I'll mention migraine, since I haven't had That Talk with my supervisors yet.
OMG the auspost delivery arrived before my meeting! Now the kittens have all their beds heating again (the delivery was a replacement power supply).
(I have left an esky with ice packs in it on the front porch in case the food arrives).
I went and picked up an online order from Target tonight. Discovered they now sell the same style of jeans I've been living in for two years in black, which is great because I vastly prefer black jeans.
Got a few new bras too, including an interesting zip front sports bra, which could come in handy for when I'm feeling too munted for regular bra fastening.
Sustainability science PhD candidate. Obsessed with cats. Knitter & spinner. Vegetable gardener. Goth/metal. Living with migraine. She/her. May swear.
