The Education System is Flawed.

As a child we are told that we can be anything we desire - an astronaut, a dancer, an archeologist or a president. But as we get older, we learn that everything we desired to do as children requires a jump over a large (and costly) hurdle: university. By secondary school, most realise and many...

Counting Down.

We live our lives counting down to something - to our next job, to our next coffee date, to the weekend. For others it's maybe till the end of school or even till their next pay check. Either way there's still a notion of counting down, waiting for something to happen. I find that the... Continue Reading →

Curious little thing called Time.

Say it with me: We've only got 3 months of the year left. 61 days, 1,464 hours and 87,840 minutes left and counting, downwards. Doesn't it freak you out that we've only got 3 months of the year of 2017 left? Because I am totally freaking out. Today it's be halloween, where towns transform for... Continue Reading →

We have... Continue Reading →

Title: Scrapbooking.

I am an obsessive scrapbooker - I've kept some sort of record, memory of each year that I've started scrapbooking - probably since I was in year 4. I was that kid who gave everyone leaving scrapbooks, all images and messages from teachers and friends alike laid beautifully on the page, an incoherent mess to... Continue Reading →

People & Their Stories

You know what I'm always amazed by ? The amount of people on this earth. All these homo sapiens, their births recorded meticulously on birth registries, all existing on this earth exactly the same time as me. Sit on a busy street for 5 minutes, the plethora of people that pass you by; some you... Continue Reading →
