Anonymous: just going to put it out there just because you took a history class and know a bit about politics doesn't make you able to comment on situations as an 18 year old with a blog, you don't know what the governments have been trying to do since you're not in every meeting and what the media says is not always the case and maybe you should leave it to the people who spend a long time deliberating on what to do based on the just war, id love to see you try and 'talk' to ISIL and get your head cut off

There are many flaws to this comment, one of which is the idea that young people should not be politically engaged and share their ideas on the internet. Another would be that as citizens whom the government seeks to represent, we should ‘leave it to the people who spend a long time’ finding solutions to our problems, and also the fact that time equates to results eg. even if we gave Clive Palmer 200 years, he would still probably not succeed in formulating a coherent set of policies. I do not think that blindly following world leaders is the best solution to solving the world’s problems because, well, we have Tony Abbott as our prime minister. Furthermore, the idea of the just war in itself is deeply flawed. To conclude, I am not suggesting that I have the even the remotest knowledge of how to stop the Islamic State from killing people, but merely that based on past events in my short lifetime we should exercise extreme caution in following America into a war.

Anonymous: I thought the ending of boyhood was cool, however I can see why so many people were disappointed with it. It just felt right for the type of movie it was, I think it was very much so about how life is a string of events (however little or big these are) and it just so happened to end on a small event, realistically.., kind of like how real life probably ends, in a small and quiet way. It just felt very real to me.

mm yeah i can see how you liked it, and i mean it wasn’t TERRIBLE but I thought since he has all these depressing realisations about the meaninglessness of life that the ending would be less cliche hollywood love story, but i still enjoyed it nonetheless

Anonymous: hhhhhhhhhhhhelen I was thinking of holding a stall at kirribilli markets with a friend, but hesitant because of the stall fees and thus low profit margins. Would you have any tips/suggestions/advice from your past experiences?

Share it with some friends and present the clothes nicely - don’t have hangers crammed so tightly together that you can’t browse etc. Goood luck pal xx

I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.
