Life Without Heating

Day 1 with no heater Wow, you don’t realise how much you need a heater until you don’t have one. We’ve only been surviving without our heater for 20 hours now and I can tell you with absolute certainty that it’s twenty hours too long. I can feel my fingers tingling because I’m so cold. […]

Cancelled Road Trip

I haven’t been on a holiday in over two years. This really unfortunate situation happened across the world, which made it impossible for anyone to travel both nationally and internationally. So, I’ve been stuck in the suburb of Malvern for far too long. We were finally given the all-clear to travel nationally a couple of […]

Literal Construction Companies

I’ve been looking forward to this for years—the day where I finally get to have a house built. It has taken a long time of saving money, working multiple tough jobs, and eventually taking a very large “loan” from the bank (if you know what I mean), but I got here eventually. The number one […]

My Crazy Boss

  The strangest thing happened at work today. I actually think my boss has lost his mind. How much longer can he rule this company for, before the board realises he’s gone loony and kicks him out of his position? Certainly, if he’s handing his employees strange objects for no real reason, then his time […]

New Hardware Store

There’s this new hardware store in my town, but I’m not sure about it. It’s called Sterge and Daughters, run by this really strange manager. Apparently, he used to work for a huge department store chain that got shut down recently, so he decided to reopen his old family hardware shop. The thing is, he’s […]

Robin Collinson’s Drainage

Who do I think has been messing with the house? I’m pretty sure it was Nadia. No real reason, other than the fact that she’s pretty crazy and does whatever she wants. I don’t even bother energy-draining her anymore because it just takes up too much of my energy. I’m genuinely afraid to talk to […]

Healthy Fungal Infection

I live a very healthy lifestyle and treat my body like a temple. I eat clean, I exercise, I don’t drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes. My friends tell me I’m the epitome of health, and I know it’s true. I don’t even try to be humble about it, instead I want to encourage people to […]

Drifting Away

It’s not as easy to drift in real life as it is in the video games. In fact, it’s really dangerous. It’s nothing like Bandicoot Team Driving, Desire for Fast or Burnt Out. They make it look simple and easy. I had no idea learning to drift would be so expensive, either. I’ve crashed my […]

Bit o’ Fresh Air

Fresh country air: there’s nothing quite like it to lift the spirits and inspire one to enjoy life’s bounty. At least, that’s the case when shards of ice aren’t falling from the sky, and a punishing wind hasn’t made off with your beanie. That’s what it was like this weekend, when I foolishly decided to […]

BYO Heat

There are two types of people: those who claim there are two types of people, and those who don’t. Evidently, as much as I’d like to make this a quasi-ironic brain teaser, I’m in the first category. To get to the point, I believe that people either run hot, or they run cold. I’d put […]
