Coworking Crazy

I’ve been sceptical of co-working spaces since they started popping up all over town a few years ago. I was like, why would you pay for desk space – in many cases, a hot desk – when you probably have a perfectly good nook at home? Granted, it might be wedged in amongst sundry personal …

Run a Tight Ship

At this point I’m pretty sure the Skimmer’s Digestive is just making things up. Not only do they always choose competition winners who don’t seem like they deserved it, but now their prizes have just gotten a bit strange, like they can’t find any luxury goods companies to partner with and they’re just choosing to …

My Botanical Balcony

I might only have a planter box on the balcony, but that’s not going to stop me from having a beautiful garden. I’m going to be THAT person, the one who looks like they have a whole botanical garden stuffed inside their apartment and it looks like it’s spilling out. People will look upwards and …

This guy sitting across from me this evening was chewing his mate’s ear off about his son having graduated as an osteopath – apparently, this is …

Bring Back Alfonso!

Change…change is the worst. I used to have the PERFECT hair salon, just around the corner, always open for walk-ins and run by the nicest, chattiest guy in existence. Everyone loved Alfonso, even really grumpy people, and I should know because I’m VERY grumpy. Alfonso always got me in a good mood, which became an …

Full of Self-Discovery

Ever since I’ve seen the greatest movie of all time, ‘A Room’, I’ve been taken with two things: real estate and film-making. Every time I think about that movie, I just feel…things. I feel the struggles of Jimmy, the main character played by Timmy Wisso, the greatest actor/director of our generation. I saw his attempts …
