Wild flowers on a river bank.

This is my “hi I’m new to blogging” post.


I’m a nerdy New Zealander who grew up in an idyllic seaside lifestyle farm. Now I’m 30 and I have Ankylosing Spondylitis. It’s been debilitating and so I’ve not been able to work. I live in our beautiful Capital Wellington with my amazing cousin Cat. She makes sure I eat at least once a day. I stream on Twitch -rougelikegirl - to keep myself busy, which leads me to the next and more complicated part of my life. I met my boyfriend on Twitch and we began, against our own sensibility, a relationship that quickly developed into love. He is in Texas. He came to visit me last year and it was amazing and now I need to get to Texas.

This blog isn’t just going to be about a chronically ill Kiwi girl trying to save up enough money to get all of the way around the world. It’s about all the non-gaming aspects of my life. Cloths, shoes, pictures of flowers, and art.

And cute af selfies

I can’t work so it’s going to be hard. I have a little savings from a housesitting job that I’m using to get started buying and selling online. I also have some crafty things planned. I’ve been learning to embroider and I have a few other plans up my sleeve.

My very first finished embroidery

Thanks for reading if you got this far and consider donating to the go-fund-me that my bf started way back when we realised how costly this whole thing would be.

Donate please and thankyou
