Hey Man, Stop Flaking on Me!


The other month an old colleague messaged me on a social networking site asking about working together. I replied promptly, enthused and excited about this potential new collaboration. And guess what? She never wrote back.  Wait a tick, did I miss something here? You contacted me, lady?! And yet 2 months later – I’M STILL WAITING. (Image via) What happened? Did...

Ouch! Growing Pains and Why We Should Embrace Them

Goodbye Hello

Recently, someone who was a major fixture in my life has stepped down. It was a mutual decision, which was painful for both of us, but it had to happen. We simply weren’t able to give each other what we needed and so, with sadness and still a lot of love in our hearts, we parted. I’m not going to... Read the rest of this post...

It had been a long time since my besties and I had kicked back to contemplate life at our local Wagas, but here we were, finally, together again. Huzzaahh! As we slurped on our Clean Green...

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

It recently occurred to me that in our society, we tend to pigeonhole a person with an introvert personality as quiet, reserved, and in some cases, even a social pariah. It makes me wonder why some of us are so quick to judge the characteristic make up of an introvert without bothering to get to know who they really are.... Read the rest of this post...

‘The Brightness Makes the Darkness Hell’

Circle of Life

‘The brightness makes the darkness hell’. This was used in a PGCE induction talk about poetry I recently had. Although it was used to demonstrate a child’s ability to use poetic writing (yes a five-year-old wrote this), I believe that this week has given me a massive realisation as to my meaning of life. I’ve suddenly become a bit dramatic... Read the rest of this post...

Why it’s best to know your friends now, you know, before the Zombie Apocalypse

Zombieland movie image

There are two types of people in the world. One that will murder you to steal your food, medical supplies and survival tools in the case of a zombie apocalypse. And another that would front the resistance and stand on the frontline in the battle for human survival. The former is an ‘every-man-for-him/herself’ dude, [s]he will do anything, and I...
