Five Bathroom Mansion

I’ve had an irrational fear of bathrooms ever since I heard a scary story about one in grade five. I am now twenty-three years old and I still haven’t completely shaken my fear of the bathroom mirror and a tap that won’t stop dripping. I won’t go into detail about the scary story because I …

Office Design Productivity

Productivity is down. My own especially. I’m a senior executive at a firm that will most definitely remain nameless, and I can feel the typical afternoon slump creeping earlier and earlier as each day passes.

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 …
