Please No Test

I’ve never liked going to the optometrist or the dentist. As a kid, I had a bad experience with a healthcare professional getting too close to my face and it really scared me at the time. Now I’m an adult and I’m still struggling with going to any sort of health appointment that involves getting […]

Botany Expert Designs

I am a botanist who lives in Australia. I love my job. It’s what I’ve wanted to do ever since I was a young girl, as I’ve always been a bit obsessed with plants. A bit too obsessed, my friends would always say. But who’s laughing now? They’re all jealous of how cool my career […]

Can’t Help Mum

Why am I always so behind on these things? I feel like I’m catching up only to fall straight behind again an hour or so later. I don’t think I’m cut out for looking after my mum anymore and I’m feeling overwhelmed with the whole situation. I love my mum more than anything, obviously, but […]

A Minor Break-In

‘So what did they take?’ the detective asked, flicking open a very official-looking notebook with not enough pages left.          ‘Uh…’ Suzanna glanced around her townhouse, trying to remember what it had looked like before the burglary. ‘I think there was a bust on that mantlepiece. And was there always a book missing from that […]

Palace for Peace

Taking a deep breath, the queen steadied herself against the oaken door. She’d made a promise to herself, to never enter this particular room angry; it was her private, secret chambers, the one that Harold didn’t know about — her sanctuary. She loved her husband, but if he got involved in one more bathroom renovation… […]

Eco-friendly Consumers

I am absolutely loving the trend of businesses trying to be more environmentally friendly and sustainable in order to get customers. I know they’re just trying to do it to make more money, but if it positively impacts the environment then literally, I don’t care what their motivation is. I’ve been really into protecting the […]

My app explainer

I have been a technology nerd my whole life. I was that kid in school that knew how to fix every computer and was fifteen and somehow knew more coding languages than the IT technicians who worked at the school. I wasn’t the most academic student, but I absolutely loved mucking around with computer software. […]

4WD in Hobart

We flew to Hobart this morning! My boyfriend’s dad’s long-awaited 60th birthday was yesterday, and to celebrate we have all flown to Hobart for the weekend. It’s a pretty cool way to celebrate a birthday, especially because we’re going to go exploring. Tasmania is a stunning, and if I may be so bold, underestimated state. […]

Professional Car Driver

I drive luxury cars for a living. I’m a chauffeur and I take my job very seriously, which means keeping my car well maintained every single day of the year. I drive Raceview’s elite around. The richest people in Raceview never bothered to get their licenses because driving themselves around is ‘for peasants’, as I’ve […]

Stuck Without Heat

  I’m angry. In fact, anger doesn’t even begin to cut it. I’m furious. We’ve been under stay at home orders for two weeks now, due to some unfortunate circumstances that are plaguing the world.  Before the stay at home order, I had a fun trip planned with three of my best friends. It’s the […]
