About Me

Photo of Aprill

Yeah, I was born in April and it was my Dad’s idea to put an extra ‘L’ in my name. I don’t bother correcting people anymore, unless it’s official documentation. I was born in 1974 and grew up in the suburbs of Sydney. I love the colour red, I like bird motifs, and I stopped counting my age when I turned 33.

In my late teens and 20s I spent several years as a volunteer radio announcer with 2RRR. I loved alternative and indie music and consequently co-produced a compilation CD and a single edition of the Earwax fanzine. My favourite singer and band of all-time is still Kristin Hersh and The Throwing Muses.

Myers-Briggs says I’m an INTP. I’m internally focused and I deal with things quietly, rationally and logically, according to the information I’ve been given. If you’ve given me wrong information to systematically stew over, that’s your problem, not mine. I might seem distant, but really, I’m just turning over a lot of things in my head. I’m not well-equipped to handle the emotional needs of others.

I started keeping this blog in 2003. I was pregnant with Fraser and I was anticipating a barrage of questions from family. I’ve been blogging ever since.

Aprill.net has documented Fraser’s milestones and the birth and milestones of his brother Lincoln.

I designed this t-shirt as a form of rebellion against the years I spent on the other end of the phone with an angry person wanting tech support. Buy my t-shirt
