Annual Home Maintenance

My wife and I have lived in our new luxury home on the Mornington Peninsula for three years now. It hasn’t been the easiest transition, with so much of the house reminding us of the life our son was supposed to live. Sometimes, I swear I feel him out there in the wind enjoying the outdoor areas like he was supposed to. I assume that’s just a trick of my

Seeking Career Advice

I’m running late for my appointment with my careers counsellor. I’m a very on-time person usually, and so the fact that I’m running late would usually shock people. I’m not particularly shocked though. I’ve been saying for over a year that I want a career change, but I haven’t actually acted on it. Even though I know I’m severely underpaid and I would be much better off working somewhere else,

Unclog It Myself

My housemates are literally at war with each other. Every morning I wake up to the sound of one of my housemates screaming at the other. It’s pretty exhausting if I’m being honest. Especially because I don’t care about what they’re fighting about either – I don’t shower, you see.  I’m a blokes-bloke, and I don’t want to smell like soap and flowers every day. Women like the smell of

Expert Brake Repair

My boyfriend keeps getting migraines which are really scary for him and really upsetting for me. He works as an electrician, so is always up on the roof or ladder, or dealing with some really intricate and potentially dangerous electrical work. He also spends a lot of time driving between jobs and worksites, which makes it risky if he gets a migraine. He seems to get migraines most often when

Very Impressive Car

I went on a fifth date with the boy. I wish I didn’t have to test him like this so early on in our dating experience, but I need to look out for the red flags early. I’ve been burned too many times before. So anyway, I got to his house because once again he didn’t want to come to my house, and he had a car parked in his

Annoying Eye Test

Can the weekend just hurry up!!!! I’m so ready to party. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job, but I’m so toey to get outside, see my friends and have a good time. We’re all going to the pub tonight to watch our favourite basketball team play in its first-ever finals series! We’re literally about to watch history unfold before our eyes, and it’s only four hours away. There

Failed Video Audition

Two months ago I sent my audition tape overseas. Today, I’ve received the feedback and I’m waiting for my family to get home before I open it. It looks like they’ve sent me some sort of videotape back, which is absolutely awesome. I assume they only send video responses to people that have gotten into the next round of auditions, and so I’m feeling very very good. I’ll update you

Unable to Drive

I wish I could report that things had changed since my last update. Unfortunately, they have not, and I’m still very much struggling with driving and anxiety in general. Even with exposure therapy, roadworthy certificates and many attempts at trying to become a more confident driver, I have made very little progress. I feel like a failure and like I’m never going to be a normal driver (or person). Normal

Famous Learner Driver

I’m somewhat famous in Adelaide and on the internet. I love being famous and having people recognise me in the street, however, the reason people recognise me definitely wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea. People in Adelaide know me as the worst driver in the city. I’m famous for being the 35-year old L plater who has failed his driving test over twenty times. Ever since I started posting videos

Lost Earrings

I lost my sun moon earrings. I’ve been wearing them for the last two years straight, ever since just after I turned twelve. I’m fourteen and a half now and I’m known at my high school as the girl with the cool earrings. So many girls have asked me where I got the earrings from and I just tell them that they were custom made for me, which makes people
