Premiership Tattoos

Last year, twenty-two of my closest mates and I won the premiership. We were the second best team in the league all season, and managed to claw our way to the finish line through sheer determination, camaraderie and persistence. It was a story for the ages, and I am very lucky to have been a …

Unreal Rooms

Homes never look like they do in magazines. Like, ever. Even in the most architecturally perfect, artfully styled, professionally cleaned, child-free and barely lived-in home you could hope to come across, if someone does in fact reside there, you’ll find evidence of that. 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 …

Summer Rules OK

Ah, summer. Is there anything better? I mean, sure, that’s a pretty broad question, but you know what I mean – it’s just the best time of year on all counts, by a huge margin. Not only can you get away with wearing thongs on most social occasions and watching 200% more cricket than usual, …

Tattoo Beauty

I’m on holidays! Three girl-friends and I are chasing the sun. So of course that means we’re spending two weeks in Queensland. We’ve taken our leave before the Christmas break because we figured Queensland would be even busier after, and we want maximum time in the sun with minimal crowding. So far, we’ve nailed it. …

Confused Car Owner

Hi! My name is Gaby, I’m 20 years old and I just bought my first second-hand car. Before yesterday I had always used the family car, and did not need to worry about literally any of its upkeep. My only responsibilities were a) don’t wreck the car and b) fill it up for petrol at …

The Paperwork Mountain

Look, maybe I just don’t remember much from being a living person, but surely things were simpler back in the day, whenever that day was. Turns out – and you’re not going to believe this – that you can’t just build a home on any old piece of land and claim it as your own. …
