A Brighter Future

It was quite a dull, boring discussion at the Futurist Club tonight. Usually I enjoy myself well enough, but when they start talking about housing, I just don’t feel like I can relate. I see the future for young people, and it’s not one of home ownership. She-who-must-not-be-named had great promises, saying that eventually the …

Ode to Cooling

It’s true, you don’t tend to see many complications of poetry entirely dedicated to heating and cooling. But so far as I’m concerned, my anthology was inspired by the seasons, just as were many great works of art. I’m just going for a bit of a narrower scope…and if people can’t see that, then I …

My Sudden Mission

It’s not every day that you suddenly have the best job ever, after having had the most boring job ever, but sometimes life just throws curve balls at you in that way. I’ll take it. Most of what I do is making sure things have been filed correctly, along with a whole lot of copying …

City of Castles

If it were up to me, EVERY home in Melbourne would be a castle. And once everyone has castles… no one will. Mwa-ha-ha! No, wait, sorry. Once everyone in Melbourne has a castle as a home, we’ll be known as the City of Ten Thousand Castles, and then I suppose I’ll go down in history …

The Grass is Greener

Victoria, as per usual, is not cooperating. It is not playing ball, and I’m getting tired of it. I lock down the house, I prepare for the wave of incoming heat like an invading army, and I take the day off work saying that I have a serious temperature (it’s technically true!), and then there’s …

Must Move Quickly

Ah, video games…they have so much to teach us, if only we would listen. And that’s not basically how I live my life, because any seconds spent NOT going fast are seconds that are being wasted. That’s the whole reason I got a job as a courier, and it’s the whole reason that people think …

Home Renovation Revenge

I’ve been subscribed to ‘Good Homes and Kitchens’ magazine for 6 months now and I can’t get enough. I get it every single week, because when it comes to light journalism, crossword quizzes, funny write-in stories and home renovation tips, it’s the absolute best. They’ve also recently started posting a saucy hot take on the latest …

Just Drive Away

I needed wheels to get out of that house, which is why it was awesome that I was friends with Stacey. Her Dad used to know a guy at a garage in Bentleigh. Automotive services was what they were all about. My parents tried to recruit this guy one time and I realised that Stacey from …

Master to Student

I should go on Geddit and do an AMA. I’m the first person even to make it to master hairdresser rank on Over-Botch, AMA! People would ask me stuff as well, because it’s a popular profession and loads of people were gunning for the title. And now that I’ve got it, I get a bunch …

Walls Upgrade

Since I’ve been spending so much time with Jessa at her lovely house I have been neglecting my little neck of the woods. My apartment in comparison is looking very drab and boring. I’ve been thinking about painting the walls a fun colour. I have never painted an entire apartment before and I’m not sure …
