Hi, this was meant to be my first post but I got a bit carried away with my other post so I’ll backtrack…
My name is Abbey (if you couldn’t figure that out from the URL and title of the blog) and I’m a first year student studying a Bachelor of Communications and Media (Marketing Communications and Advertising) at UOW.
I have 3 major passions:
- BASKETBALL. Particularly NBA and NBL. My teams are the San Antonio Spurs and Illawarra Hawks, but I also have a soft spot for the Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers. If you want some betting tips, I’m your girl.
- LIVE MUSIC, or music in general. Every single penny of my measly savings is spent on live music. It’s currently March and I’ve been to Field Day (not my proudest musical moment), Gang of Youths, Laneway and RÜFÜS DU SOL. I’m also seeing Matt Corby this month, and going to Groovin’ the Moo in April and Ball Park Music in May. My Spotify is linked on this blog too if you want to check it out. I also love finding new music, so follow me or send through some of your recommendations!
- SOCIAL JUSTICE. This may be evident from my previous blog post. A lot of my social media sites consist of posts trying to educate and raise awareness. This passion has mostly stemmed from doing Aboriginal Studies for my HSC, where my major work focused on the importance of teaching Aboriginal history, culture and heritage and identity in schools.
Anyway, I’ve been forced to make this blog, like the rest of Comms + Media, but I’m going to try my best to make some quality content that is somewhat interesting to read. So if you’ve stuck around til the end of this post, welcome and I hope you enjoy my blog 🙂
