Blog. Short Stories. Poems. Recommended Reads. All that good stuff.

Shedding the pounds (Blog Post)

Our mind does some fascinating things. And often very strange ones (well, I’m speaking for myself here in the hope there’s some consensus). The way I rationalise many things to myself is by a general law of averages. Aka, if I am on holiday and had two great meals, but one was a rip-off, and…

One of the most epic things ever (Blog Post)

For those that know me, it is no secret I have some, perhaps irrational fears (such as driving on the motorway. Or bees/wasps.) Yet some are a fair bit more understandable.

Procrastination – Maybe it isn't such a bad thing…(Blog post)

So here it is. I have finally registered this blog as a ‘dot com’ website. You can tell it’s procrastination season when you have thousands of ideas in your mind that, for some reason, lay dormant when you have nothing better to do. I suddenly found things that, before, didn’t before seem to cross my…

Ignorance so bliss (Poem)

This poem sets the scene of an individual, in a room where massacres are taking place, sitting mute in a chair with eyes closed and music playing in headphones wedged in ears – the idea of being deaf, dumb and blind to the world around me, as an extended metaphor of the effects of ignorance. …
