Being Liked & Being Right

There is a thin line between being right and being liked and, at twenty years of age, I’m still not sure I’ve found it. Sometimes, it isn’t even there, which makes it all the more elusive. I started this blog roughly five years ago, so I have been trying to do a bit of introspection... Continue Reading →

Homeless

In my short, sharp and sweet existence thus far I have learned three things from my interactions with homeless people. They go as follows. Firstly, that when people beg for something they often need it. I think it is fascinating that Australians continue to believe homeless people could do better for themselves. On many levels,...

Tolerance

I’ve been watching an Unfortunate Series of Events on Netflix lately because I remember loving the book series as a kid.

On an early morning talk show yesterday, two guests were presented with the chaos currently surrounding the... Continue Reading →

Trusting God

Everyone has stories of times when they trusted someone and were let down.

However, one... Continue Reading →
