About me

My name is Esther and I’m a dreamer. I tend to reside in my own quixotic world of clichés. A few people have said I’m impractical – though I’m not a perfectionist, I guess it’s because I like to believe in some ideals. I’m introverted, a phlegmatic, and an optimist.

I live in Brisbane, Australia, and work for a news organisation called APN Australian Regional Media. In 2009, I graduated from the University of Queensland with a dual degree in Journalism and English.

I’m a great lover of books and you’ll often find me reading or writing, or at least thinking about reading and writing. English has always been my favourite language and I’m fascinated by its nuances.

I love stories and happen to know my life is one. This Tumblr is where I catalogue snippets of my emotions and experiences. It’s a personal blog, so if you’ve come here intentionally I hope you don’t mind reading personal thoughts.
