Hi there! Thank you for stopping by.

My name’s Temperance. I’m a twenty six year old woman living in Melbourne, Australia.  While I normally can’t shut up, I’m really bad at talking about myself, so here are some random facts about me:

  • I'm a little bit obsessed with animals, especially dogs and birds. Thankfully, I lack the scientific prowess to make a hideous dog-bird hybrid.
  • I love philosophy. I actually wanted to becom a philosophy professor at one point. I attribute this to my love of arguing and my compulsive need to overthink everything. My favourite areas of philosophical enquiry are political philosophy, bioethics, and epistemology. I like to refer to long-dead philosophers as "mah boi".
  • I'm utterly terrible at finishing the DIY projects I start. The fact that I have ten unfinished projects is never a reason to not start a new one. This blog is basically the only reason I ever finish anything.
  • In my spare time I like to play video games. Yelling at the screen is surprisingly cathartic.
  • One of the most embarrassing things about me is my unapologetic love for angst mid-2000s pop-punk. *flips emo hair* It's not a phase, mum, it's who I truly am.
  • I pretty much run on peanut butter and soy mochas. I'm going to die early but it'll have been so worth it.
  • Finally, I'm pretty much always online because I'm a massive nerd. Let's be friends on social media (seriously, I need a social life):
