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 …

Helping kids learn

I have been a primary school teacher for the last twenty-five years and in those twenty-five years, I have seen many rapid changes in technology. I’ve witnessed the switch from chalkboards to whiteboards, an increase in the reliance on computers, tablets being used in the classroom and kids having phones at an even younger age. …

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.

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 …

Flat feet boxing

A big part of boxing is the footwork and the ability to stay on your toes. I really struggled with this on the first day. It felt as if the arches under my feet were straining but I assumed this was normal for beginners. After about a week of training, my trainer noticed that I …

Magical Earring Warning

Seeing as I performed the best in the boar wrestling competition, I was permitted to leave the area first. After climbing back aboard my ship, I was off, sailing the waters around Victoria in order to find the location of our next challenge. The fancy earrings I wore pulled me south, toward the great frozen …

Company Christmas Video

It’s hard for me to delegate tasks. I’m a bit of a control freak and so I try to do everything myself. I just have this notion in my head that I’ll be able to do it better than someone else. This even goes for situations where I clearly can’t do it better than someone …
