Congrats to Jeff

Things were right back to basics for the finale of The Great Australian Trade-Off, and I can see why. This season has been a bit of a weird one in terms of ratings, reception, all of that. And it’s all down to the weird, non-tradie things they’ve made people do. So we get to the …

My Frosted Dwelling

What’s the point of being fabulously wealthy if you can’t do silly, avant-garde things with your money? I’ll freely admit that I’m rather bored, and this fills my time. You see what happens when you inherit billions of dollars, you’re making more every day, you’ve got a huge house and a private cruise ship and …

Solar in the City

It really is strange what people will go to see at the theatre nowadays. Now, I’m all for representation in movies and all, but if I was part of the specific demographic seen in ‘Crazy Rich Locals’, I’m not sure how I’d feel. All those rich locals, who are also crazy, spending money on elaborate …

Modern but New

What’s something really modern, but it also might have existed in ancient times? Like, in ancient Rome, where they had vending machines and steam power, maybe. I really need to come up with something for my essay that I didn’t know I was getting. All of a sudden our professor has decided that empires have …

Decor Daydreams

You know when your house feels too clean? Okay, maybe you don’t. The few people I’ve expressed this to didn’t seem to relate to my problem at all. I guess I mean ‘clean’ in a stylistic sense, rather than a literal state of not being dirty. Basically, my pad is not grunge enough for my …

Carrie’s Boat Guy

Carrie just needs to NOT. Like, she just needs to not even, because at this moment like I can’t even, and if I can’t even, then Carrie needs to…like, I don’t even know. Everyone knows that Carrie’s parents are super not rich, like, not poor, but not rich. They drive her to school in a …

The Cool Bride

I have always dreamed of getting married in Canberra. I spent the summers of my youth playing along the wonderful beaches, on and off Dad’s yacht and begging for one more ice cream from my favourite little beachside vendor. Life in the city always seemed so fast and stressful compared to the dreamscape of Canberra. …

View to Renovations

Talk about a loo with a view. My bathroom window is really something else, and I do my best to avoid taking it for granted. Each day, I make sure to take in the vista and remind myself that everyone has such an outlook from their porcelain throne. In the course of doing this, however, …

My Own Cruiser

Today I was thinking so very hard on the train that I almost spilled my coffee over the person next to me. I think I just went so deep into thought that I lost motor control, looked down and I was this close to just pouring it onto their lap. They were giving me a …
