Just Moved In

I put down the heavy box at my front door with an exhausted grunt, collapsing next to it so I could catch my breath.          ‘Are you okay?’          I heard a kind voice over the sound of my panting and looked up through the dark spots in my vision. An old man was standing …

Purple Hair Redo

I dyed my hair purple last week, and now there is a whole new routine I have to follow when I wash my hair. To ensure my purple hair doesn’t fade or become an ugly brown colour, I have to use a special colour-preserving shampoo and conditioner, and only wash using cold water. This is …

Lorcan bristled at the man’s misplaced confidence.  …

Dead End Job

So, after my last blog post, I thought I’d give you all an update. The update is that I’m sad. I spent a lot of time chatting with the careers counsellor who ran me through the pros and cons of pursuing a new career and the pros and cons of moving companies. She said it …

Global Cooling

Remember back in the day when everyone was worried about global warming? I look back on those days and laugh. We had no idea that global cooling was just around the corner and that we’d be plunged back into the Ice Age. It’s actually a bit scary how things can take such a turn and …
