My sister’s home

I come from quite a big family consisting of myself and four other siblings. Granted, my parents weren’t initially planning to have this many children. Myself and my eldest brother were around first. My parents then thought they’d try for a girl as my mum was tired of being the only female in the family …

The Bathroom Betrayal

‘I still don’t understand why we have to do this,’ Harold grumbled from the bathroom doorway, still clutching his uneaten lettuce sandwich.          ‘Didn’t you have a fall in here?’ Charlie asked, brandishing a measuring tape and looking confused. ‘Like, a really bad?’          Harold narrowed his eyes. ‘Yes. Yes, now you mention it, I …

My home also doubles as my workspace. I work as a producer and recording engineer out of a few converted rooms in my home. Part of becoming a reputable audio engineer is having the gear to back it up. I’ve made sure that I am using a state of the art recording desk, high-quality microphones, …

Best Decision Ever

I had solar panels installed on the roof of my double-storey home six years ago now. I did so because I was spending so much money on electricity and it was making it hard to justify working from home every day. Well, I can happily say that I haven’t been in the office for six …

Contemplating braces

I’ve never been a huge fan of my teeth. While they don’t look horrible, they’re definitely not a perfect salesman or model smile. For starters, they’re extremely weak and it doesn’t help that I’m someone who is guilty of using my teeth to open packaging. I’ve cracked my teeth numerous times and I was genetically …

Perfecting diesel

If you’re anything like I am, your vehicle will be your pride and joy. I’ve been through all the mistakes of owning a diesel vehicle. I’ve forgotten to service my car before. I’ve neglected hints of car trouble and let these worsen with time. I’ve used the wrong fuel and incorrectly used my brakes before. …

The cover up

Has anyone else ever gotten a really dumb, ugly, or stupid tattoo that they regret? Perhaps it’s the result of a spur of a moment decision, a moment of rebellion, or visiting a tattoo artist that just isn’t all that good. I’ve been in all three of those situations. About eleven years ago I was …

Muay Thai Phase

I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve gone through my fair share of phases. I’ve been extremely into the heavy metal scene, I’ve dabbled in teaching my dog to run agility courses, and I’ve even become a qualified Muay Thai competitor. I’m going to be honest, of my phases, that’s the one I’m most embarrassed …

Crowns and Ribs

I am currently on a mission to find the best rack of ribs in Australia. This mission started about a year ago when I was watching a series where a guy travelled to a variety of cities in America to eat all these different fast-food meals. These meals included everything from giant burgers to giant …
