Making changes

Over the years I’m noticing a change in how my body operates. As I’m nearing seventy years old I’m becoming a lot less nimble than I once was. My joints are cracking a lot more, I’m noticing pain and slight twinges in my bones and muscles, and I’m finding that I’m getting fatigued a lot …

My favourite country

It’s probably weird to hear that some people have a favourite country, but has anyone else ever felt particularly drawn to a country they’ve never been to? A few of my friends feel very drawn to America as it is where some of their favourite bands and movies have come from. Others I know are …

I hate editing

Do you ever find that sometimes there’s a process you need to do but there’s a certain step in that process that you just despise? For me that step is editing. I currently work for a historical tours company where we give walking tours of iconic locations in Melbourne. My personal favourite are the guided …

Hardware Store Comfort

When tears stain your face, there’s only one thing that I know of that will make you feel better. I’ve always tried to be the person that you can rely on, to tell you that you’re great and that I’ll love you no matter what, but it doesn’t seem to do the trick. I’ve learned …

The Steel Deal

Do you remember that guy who thought all the steel in Melbourne comes from outer space? Yeah, he was a total lunatic. The funny thing is, though, that we are actually within reach of achieving that. The astronomers at the Steel Merchants’ Guild have recently discovered that one of Jupiter’s moons has an incredible amount …

Braces for adults

I’ve had extremely crooked teeth my whole life. It’s never particularly bothered me but I definitely have found it uncomfortable from time to time. Occasionally I would get bleeding gums due to my teeth crowding, but beyond that, I never thought it was a big deal. I’ve always followed the notion that I brush and …

Too late?

I’m thirty-two and I hate my job. I hate it so much. I don’t know who thought it was a good idea to put teenagers in charge of picking their future professions but that person should be fired. Sixteen year old me really wanted to be a structural engineer. Boy was I wrong. I made …
