Hardware Store Memories

As the son of a tradesman, I spent many years growing up frequenting hardware stores. The hardware store felt like my second home. I knew all the staff, I knew where to find materials in every aisle, and I knew exactly where to hide when my dad said it was time to go home. You’d …

Tool Storage Heaven

I am in my fourth year of an electrical apprenticeship. Anyone who has worked in a trade knows how difficult it is. Trade work is most definitely not for the faint of heart. Being a sparky has been a test of my stamina and resilience every day since I finished school five years ago. Don’t …

I’ve been searching far and wide, and finally, I’ve found some more important people to interview for the Australian Bureau of Random Statistics.

It might be as subtle as a stray smear of hummus on …

New Keto Diet

My good friend has just started a keto diet, and I’m a bit confused about it. He seems like a pretty fit guy anyway, not that I’ve paid attention… but yeah he certainly doesn’t seem like he’d need to be on a diet. When I asked him about it, he started listing off all the …

Magical Cabin Window

My family owns a small cabin in a picturesque country town.  The cabin sits on the side of a river and is covered by overhanging pine trees that create constant shadow over the house despite the intense heat of the climate. It is an incredible place that makes you believe in magic. When people write …

Just Get Along

Just when you think the end of the so-called silly season is in sight, with the flurry of shopping and parties giving way to the dulcet tones of Silent Night, there’s more. If anything, the season really hits its stride just after Christmas. By then, everyone is properly in holiday mode and has had their …

Instant Relief

  The daily commute from my home in the Western suburbs to my office in Richmond is often long and bothersome. Almost every Melburnian can relate to the struggle of travelling during peak hour, whether that be via public transport or on our roads. Congestion is often hard to escape and it can be difficult …
