Contact – Book Review

This book was recommended to me by a co-worker who noticed how much I was reading last year in my breaks between students at work, and wanted to hear my opinion on this Science Fiction novel. As I’ve said before, I like it when friends lend me books they’re interested in because it’s an opportunityContinue reading “Contact – Book Review”

The God Pedestal

I have a bad habit of putting the people I love most in life on what I have come to call, the God Pedestal. Meaning that throughout my life, I have unintentionally placed impossible expectations on the shoulders of close loved ones, expecting them to fulfil my own sense of purpose and happiness. It’s definitelyContinue reading “The God Pedestal”

Post 2nd Operation – Back To Square One

This is my life. It’s all about that injured little finger life for now. Just when I thought things are getting a bit more normal, where I was using all 7 fingers and even driving a car – next minute, I’m midway through my second operation, where the surgeon realises he has to repair oneContinue reading “Post 2nd Operation – Back To Square One”

My Dreadful Attention Span

In the process of writing this blog post I am also midway writing three other blog posts, that are kept in neighbouring tabs, so I can switch blog posts at any given moment if I get bored. A more reasonable person might think, but how can you stay on topic?  Well Reasonable Person, let meContinue reading “My Dreadful Attention Span”

Why Do School Choirs Suck?

I hate to say it, but I think they do. Every time I meet new students or check in with my regular students at the start of every year, I ask them if they’re in the school choir and a huge majority of them say no. When the rare child says yes I like toContinue reading “Why Do School Choirs Suck?”

Pinky Restoration Project: Progress Report

I was going to title this post the ‘Pinky Injury Update’, but it’s nowhere near up at the moment. This lil’ fella is still looking like the Hunchback of Notre-Dame. And I have nothing against those of you who have a hunch in your back at all, if that’s what you’ve got. ‘Cos hey, ifContinue reading “Pinky Restoration Project: Progress Report”

Blog Honesty – A New Years Resolution

I feel the need to write on here more often. But if I were to do so, I think it would be of things a little challenging or too honest to post to my loved ones and Christians in my online vicinity. That’s the thing about calling yourself a something in a certain community, naturallyContinue reading “Blog Honesty – A New Years Resolution”

I Actually Don’t Mind Being Called Mate.

I think I’ve got it. Yep, I can’t say I never achieved anything in my life. I have the ugliest pinky. I might even give it a name like Paul. Or Patricia. Or Patrice. Or Pa–whydoyahavetolooksostinkingugly. Long gone are my chances of being a left hand model or even a two handed model. I justContinue reading “I Actually Don’t Mind Being Called Mate.”

Asking For Help – A Scaredy Cat’s Tale

Asking for help has been a prominent fear of mine since I was in grade 1, when I couldn’t understand the concepts of basic mathematics. I just remember being given the work sheets with very simple equations, feeling overwhelmed looking at the list of questions thinking: I have no idea. I would look at theContinue reading “Asking For Help – A Scaredy Cat’s Tale”

Call Me Phantom

Call me the Phantom! Watch out as I fight crime with my super strong– wait no. My super fast– nah that’s not it either. My invincible– hang on, what does the Phantom do again? *investigates on Wikipedia (beep-boop, beep-boop): ‘…the Phantom is a legacy hero, descended from 20 previous generations of crimefighters who all adopt theContinue reading “Call Me Phantom”
