This photo was taken during the best and worst year of life so far (does that make sense?), I was studying, working two jobs (seven days a week… never again), going out and getting drunk all the time, and hanging out with my best friends on the reg. I was having a lot of fun, but I was also a bit of a mess; I was still working at Spacesuit when this was taken, it was during after work drinks at a bar up the road and I was with Carol (who I had flatted with a few years earlier, and was working with at the time) and Anu (who I had met through Carol when they were working together).
Here I am holding one of my birthday cakes (yes, I had two cakes that year, mum made one, and my nana made the other*). Also in the photo are Rebecca and Hannah (our next door neighbours at the time), and my brother Phillip (the shirtless one).
*Nana made the cake I wanted to eat, mum’s one… not so much, so of course when it came to cake eating time, nana’s one disappeared without me getting a slice.
