Encounters With The Homeless (part 2)

I had a friend who once gave a homeless lady $50 because her cardboard sign said she was pregnant and alone. It was a freezing night and he encouraged her to just buy a blanket. A couple of months later, he passed the exact same woman, no baby and a different sign. He felt absolutely... Continue Reading →


The House

I slip the key into the lock on the front door and give it a shove. The musty smell of dust and disuse accuses us as we walk through. "You take the guest room, I'll hit the kitchen." We storm in like soldiers and work for two hours straight, gloves on, the radio blasting. We... Continue Reading →


In the past few months, I have listened to more about myself than I remember having heard in my entire life. It all started when I admitted to a friend that one of my New Year's Resolutions was to work on my pride and, instead of rushing to the aid of my ego, she said... Continue Reading →

Stick It Out

I’ve seen a few posts recently on “how to tell if you’re in an abusive relationship”. This moved a lot of thoughts in me, and as I’ve come to realise, they tend to explode into these blog posts.
