Who Has Time?

You know those days when your to-do list is completely out of control? Like, you tick one thing off and two more new additions crop up in its place, like some kind of administrative hydra? That’s what I’ve been experiencing all week. I don’t even know where it’s all coming from – it’s as though …

I keep thinking of my wizard brothers, working in jobs where they can wear whatever shoes they like, like Fizzibottom in the luxurious hamburger creation …

Window Tinting Interviews

I’m conducting a survey for the Australian Bureau of Random Statistics, to find out why important people and companies had window tinting done. This is the first field job I’ve been given, and I’m really enjoying it, despite all the weird people you come across out in the world. It’s been a really enlightening experience, …
