australian podcast awards

September 20, 2021 Posted by the writer

About 48 hours ago I discovered the Australian Podcast Awards. As can be imagined, Heath and I could not think of a better candidate for best podcasts 2021 than Heathen Down Under!

According to our Australian Podcast Awards research, it’s hard to peg our odds at gaining recognition with these cats. However, the journey of shooting in a clip and investigating sponsors made for a fun morning.

We put our hand up for the Best New Podcast award. If you’re just catching up, we’re up to episode 25! Heath and I started podcasting about 8 weeks after we met. Considering my very early career was in radio, I’ve been having the most fun ever during our weekly banter.

In our latest Sunday Surprise episode, we talk more about our Australian Podcast Awards journey so far and the corporate rabbit hole the trip spun us into. We also touch on the quirky aggression imposed by the Sunshine Coast onto the Gold Coast and Nicki Minaj’s covid rant on Twitter.

It’s so much fun…

Heath and I are getting married 26 October after meeting 10 February, it’s really soon! Interestingly, while I’ve been married three times – it’s the first time I’ve every worn an engagement ring.

karma, faith and other goodies

September 14, 2021 Posted by the writer

The twelve year anniversary of FollowMeToNYC is upon us blahg family. Every annual milestone of this site has meant something to me.

Isn’t it beautiful how the years drift by?

Once I got to New York City and my daily updates subsided, it’s not like life stopped. On the contrary, I was in my early 30’s, smack dab in the centre of midtown Manhattan, making more money than I ever actually thought about before.

Things took off in wild, wonderful ways… with heaps of shit happenings amongst the occurrences. And since I never cared for the blahg to be boo-hoo central, most of that I kept to myself.

Most of it…

Also within these pages is my constant reiteration of managing karmic occurrences and my unwavering faith. The gratitude oozing in my veins toward these realities while I’m spinning in my current “reality” is a couple books deep.

I enjoy being multifaceted. At the risk of coming off as an elitist, I feel like a majority of human beings are quite one-dimensional. That’s not a dig at humanity, simply one small view.

I have a lot of views…

Alas, my personal views pertaining to karma and faith are what’s kept me straight and were miraculously instilled in me since landing on this planet. We aren’t talking religious faith, I have a Heathen podcast after all.

I’ve never had anything to prove to anyone. I’ve been around the world, lived long enough to comment and have gracefully confirmed that intuition is the greatest gift you’ve got. If you haven’t quite harnessed yours yet, practice.

The collection of creatures I’ve rolled with more than a couple of times will likely recall my life rant around, “I don’t care where I am, it’s who I’m with.

I’m finally with who I spent my life trying to find. I can’t explain the sensation of honest destiny manifesting in the shape I’m presently residing in.

… I’m writing about it though. Trust and believe. x

birthday, marriage and more!

September 12, 2021 Posted by the writer

Hiding has suited me more than words can depict.

It’s been the best birthday weekend I’ve had to date. Since I found Heath, we’ve been inseparable. We haven’t spent a single day apart, two nights early at the start by circumstance.

There’s some cult members that lurk around this webpage who can ride back 12 years with me to the start. Back when I dumped husband one to move on with my life.

Somewhere in these pages a second and third husband are woven in for a variety of reasons. Brief spats of nothing filling a void I tried to deny was there.

It’s full now… lucky number four is official. I couldn’t be more pleased.

We spent around two months jetting around Queensland. Shout out to you guys who support the podcast. Next to my writing, it’s the most fun I’ve had with an art project.

Heath and I will be married next month, there’s all sorts of exciting news coming along with that. I’m melting back into my blahg. I’m happy I didn’t take it down, like I tend to with Interweb happenings. Online does and always has bored me, but the connections I’ve made and make are what keep me dipping in and out.

A birthday resolution is to be more consistent around here. I actually stuck with and manifested all of my birthday resolutions from last year, this year will be even better. At 43 years old, I’ve learned even when life feels the best, better is around the corner waiting to blow your mind.

My mind is blown. I spent my life looking for Heath and substituting half wits to kill the time while I wondered where he was. I went to New York City looking for him. I found myself and came back to Australia alone around eight years later because I knew it was where I had to be.

And here I am…

the resurrection

Namaste blah-g tribe… what’s goodie?

After about four months of invisible, FollowMeToNYC is being reignited.

To say my life is new is a gross understatement. I could not possibly be more pleased.

Some of you may have been keeping up with the pod, there’s even a YouTube game taking shape.

If you’re really curious what I’ve been up to… try here.

It’s been about four months since I met Heath.

Talk about a divine intervention.

Moving to Yamba, NSW back in January from the Gold Coast led me to my absolute, undoubtable twin flame whilst also introducing me to some of the most disgusting real estate beasts I have yet to encounter.

Those keeping up are naturally aware that I have an extensive history with wanky real estate agents dating back to 2010, possibly prior. So without getting into too much detail, I’ll just let you know that the latest literally forged my signature on a fake contract and submitted it to a court.

… that happened.
