Not sure I could hurt more than I am right now.
In 24 hours, this blog will self-destruct.
Put simply, I’m ditching this blog for a brand new one. With a new job, comes a new start. And a chance to build a real web presence, so, here goes. Wanna jump in? Find me at bradwoodradio.tumblr.com Cheers kids! It’s been fun.
I have a gambling problem. And I fucking hate it.
That UK feeling. It's back.
Yeah, that feeling. Remember how I would fangirl so much over that country a while ago? Constant posts, Facebook updates, Tweets and the like? Kinda sorta ready to feel like that again… Okay, I promise I won’t bombard, but I decided to listen into Heart 106.2 via livestream a couple of days ago, and they happened to be playing a 30 second radio commercial about the London Olympic...
16 innocent civilians, lost forever. And one man,...
So I’ve been following the developments out of Afghanistan from the past few days about the actions of US Staff Sergeant Robert Bales, and quite frankly, it tugs at my heart. The man, if he can even be called that anymore, woke up in the middle of the night in Kandahar province last Sunday, around 3am, and made a journey to homes in the Panjwai district, and randomly shot 16 Afghani...
New goals, New ambitions, new dreams...
So I’d say that this past week has been a real page turner in my life. All sorts of different things have changed me. My work ethic has become better. I’m more privy to learning. I’m also more privy to realisations, and being realistic about things. My efforts in losing weight is getting better. All because I found an inspiration in the past few weeks. It’s amazing...
Why are we rushing this?
Quick post before I head on-air. Why the hell are the FFA appearing to rush the expansion of the A-League? This story has surfaced in the past couple of days about a possible Canberra United football side in the league as early as next season: http://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/a-league/news/1097327/Canberra-in-the-frame Now, I’m all for a Canberra side, don’t get me wrong, although...
Time to blow some minds.
So today, I got some news which made me feel… you could say relieved, yet also frustrated, too. I applied for a new radio job in Ballarat at Power FM, and I missed out on it. Someone from Darwin beat me to the post. Now, in a way, because I threw everything at it, I was absolutely shattered that I missed out, yet at the same time, I was relieved. I told myself that if I missed out on the...
So I take back (some of) what I said last night..
I did say I regret moving here. Well… I don’t, really. Only because of one thing, though. I just miss the city. I wish I could have both.
I feel like I should never have left...
First of all, I would just like to admit and acknowledge how lucky I, and we, are to have access to the resources and lifestyle that we do in this country. And this post is in no way intended to appear to be taking for granted what we have. But this weekend, that lifestyle we’re all so lucky to has severely twisted me up. You see, I went to Sydney over the weekend, those of you who know...
Might as well delete this thing...
Hardly ever use Tumblr anymore!
Wow, I never post here anymore.
What the fuck happened?
I haven't been on here for ages! So, here's what's...
Well, for starters, tonight signals my first two weeks in Muswellbrook! I can finally call myself a resident of this awesome part of the world, and it’s beginning to feel homely. My feet are firmly planted on the ground, and I reckon some big things are in store over the next few months. My new job is the best one I’ve ever had, even if it is extremely stressful at times! I am the...
I'm getting that nervous feeling....
So the big move begins on Friday, and after seeing so many of the people I love over the past few days, I’m getting that feeling. It’s starting to feel real. Like it’s actually happening. And it is. On Friday, once I take the Hume Highway turnoff from the Metro Ring Road, I’ll be leaving everything that I’ve been used to for 20 years behind me. Giving it all up. I...
Need a good restaurant in Melbourne CBD to take...
Today was utter brutality. Pure and fucking...
So, I wasn’t in Melbourne for today’s Occupy protest, although I sure will be tomorrow, only to rally against the heavy handed tactics of a police force which is supposedly meant to “protect” it’s own citizens, and, by it’s own badge, “uphold the right”. I definitely saw none of that happening today. All I saw was brutality on a mass scale. It felt...
No justice. No peace. Fuck the police!
FUCK THE POLICE.
whereithrewmyloveaway: So disgusting.
Actually glad I'm moving to New South Wales,...
I'm moving to New South Wales in two weeks...
So I managed to score myself a coveted “foot in the door” at a commercial radio station, finally! I’ve been fighting to get this for the past eight years now, and I’m so relieved that it’s finally happened. And damn, am I excited! So yes, I’ll be leaving my home state of Victoria, on my own, to venture out into the unknown: the Upper Hunter region of NSW....
Maybe I should just stop talking to you and get on...
The night I took too much pleasure in Liverpool's...
That’s how tonight will be known. Seriously, too funny. Lucy and Ivy, I love you guys. You have brought the laughs tonight, that’s for sure. <3
Sick of being ignored by you.
I kind of feel like right now, if I were to move away from Melbourne, and something extreme were to happen, like a natural disaster or something, you wouldn’t even give a fuck to check if I was alive or dead.
Job interview with Power FM Muswellbrook at 9:30...
Nobody seems to care anymore.
I just wish somebody, even one person, would take five seconds out of their day to ask me if I’m okay. I’m not being selfish, or arrogant, or fishing for sympathy, I just wish there were people out there who cared.

IT'S FOOTBALL DAY TOMORROW!
5 days to go.
I am really so excited for this week. The AFL is finally over, and now, if we can get it all right, the A-League will become Australia’s main sporting focus over the next 5-6 months. Football brings me so much joy, and after such a long off-season, I really cannot wait to scream, to shout, to act like a maniac in victory, and to sob, to hurt, and to feel like life is worthless in defeat. I...
Time to try something new.
Like watching Doctor Who, perhaps?
