Bag Of Feels

Buying a house is like a pick ‘n’ mix bag of emotional triggers. First, there’s the financial stuff – not just the actual process of securing, transferring and repaying funds, but also all the feelings about it that most people have lurking just below the surface. Then there’s the permanence aspect, questions about adulthood, ownership …

High Seas Drama

I had my doubts when Week of Our Lives announced a spin-off, especially since it would only be a weekly show. They’ve had so much to do with boats recently, but the premise at the very least made sense – a few characters taking to the sea on a small fleet of boats to find …

It’s All Energy

Why does everything have to revolve around money? Even when you honestly believe that it doesn’t, it still kind of does. I’m not saying there’s an evil group of baddies conspiring to make everyone a cog in the money machine; I recognise that it’s simply a feature of the world as it is. I also …

Health Crises Galore

It’s come to my attention how easy it is to take good health for granted when, like me, you’re lucky enough to have it as your baseline. Several of my friends and family members have recently experienced serious medical scares, and it’s making me realise how unexpectedly these can occur. For example, my personal trainer …
