Pack Man

There’s nothing like packing the truck for an adventure to wipe my mind clean of worries. There’s something so soothing about the Tetris-like mindset that the task commands. It puts me into a bit of a trance, really. The ice packs go in the eski, the eski goes in the back left corner, the swag …

Virtually At Work

What even is a virtual office? I suspect that it’s just, like, a laptop with some pricey cloud-based software on it. That’s all well and good, but I’m wary of how this type of terminology is applied in practice. I mean, there are certain elements of the old fashioned, bricks-and-mortar office that are there for …

Going Dutch

I hope Karl realises that I’m only in this until it gets off the ground. There’s a slight possibility that this has gone over his head. It’s his passion project, and he has a tendency to assume that, as his brother, I’m going to be equally passionate about it. He must realise, though, that subscription …

Car Troubles, Everywhere

Oh, these silly, silly humans. I took on this identity to become closer to them, to understand their ways, and continually they prove themselves to be so silly. Such silliness! I just don’t know how much of my run time I can devote to their silliness anymore, and when all of my run time is …

The Last Bastion

Ugh, Charys… I will have you for my army. Everyone at this filthy peasant school has fallen into line after I bought dims-sims for everyone. Their simple minds were manipulated by the prospect of food, and now I’m everyone’s best friend. But Charys is a sneaky one. She seems to have seen through my scheme …

Glaziers Get a Boost

The Lizards have finally returned from all being in hospital together and having their stomachs pumped, which is a relief because I needed something to fill my evenings. Well, fill one hour of my evenings, anyway…I suppose it’s a delicate system that could crumble if anything gets preempted or cancelled. If I ever heard a …

Wedding Party Woes

My sister Janelle is getting married next week, and she hasn’t booked a hair stylist yet. That’s super typical of her, but also I can’t believe it. More to the point, I can’t believe we’re related. If I was about to be the focal point of that many people at once, there’s no way I’d …

Officially Zen

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the concept of zen and how it can be applied in the workplace. It all started when I was helping my mate Brianna move house and we found an old book behind her long-stationary bookshelf, called Zen and the Art of Making a Living. It sets out various …

Date Divide

I’ve been dating this girl who’s pretty cool, although there’s a slight problem, which is that I don’t quite understand what she does for a living. According to her, she works as a buyer for a distributor of cutting-edge health devices. What does that even mean? It’s not that I don’t believe her, it’s just …
