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 …

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 …

Road Unworthy

Selling a car is such a pain. There are so many hoops you have to jump through, just to get it ready to sell. Isn’t it funny, how buying a car is one of the best things in the world? Selling one, though? Simply the worst. Imagine this: you’ve been keen to sell your car …

Not Learning Fundamentals

Is it bad that I don’t know the last time my car was serviced? Is that even legal? It’s one of those things that they don’t teach you in school, but for some reason everybody just expects you to know. Like doing your taxes, or the fact that ambulances aren’t free. Most of this stuff …

Highway Helper

There’s nothing like sharing a van with a rag-tag band of hitchhikers to put things in perspective, if only by revealing just how handy it is to be driving a working vehicle. For reasons I can’t really explain, I made it my mission to pick up as many hitchhikers as I could today, and I …

Twilight for Melbourne

You know, with all the weird stuff going on around Melbourne lately, I’m surprised that no one has thought to make an entire publication based around it. Maybe it’s just that no one has any faith in print media anymore, but I really think it could sell if you made it all glossy and collectable, …

The Oncoming Storm

It’s September. And you know what that means. Christmas. Christmas is upon us. There’s no stopping it, or slowing it. It creeps up on you, taps you on the shoulder, and then BAM. Christmas.  Who’s that creeping around outside, pressing its wild face against the glass, readying a brick to hurl right through the metaphorical …

Driving, Accelerated

Okay, there’s a skeleton here now. I must admit, although I saw many things during the wonderful golden age of Atlantis, a spooky skeleton is not something for which I was prepared. He’s pleasant enough, but he keeps trying to jump out from cupboards before the lesson, yelling “BOO!” and trying to scare people. I …

That’ll Do, Car

Cars are just everywhere in games nowadays. Cars and cameras. Every single video game is giving you the ability to take photographs at any time, and they’re also providing you with a car right off the bat so you can explore one of a gajillion open worlds, which aren’t getting old at all.  Personally I …

Infinity Social Increase!

Odd-Match sure has been a blessing to my social life. I used to talk to no real human people outside of life, and now I talk to… um… hang on a moment. According to a percentage calculator, that would be an increase of infinity. Times two! I don’t know, but I have two friends now, because …
