Property Managing

I was talking to this girl at a wine and cheese party about Sydney real estate. Bear in mind, Sydney is the second most expensive city to live in these days and it is almost impossible to buy a house or property to live in. But none the less she was a property manager in…

Call Me Doctor

I found out the other day that one of my coworkers has a PhD. in behavioural science. That’s insane! I asked him why he doesn’t make us call him doctor. And why he chose the career path he did given his qualifications. His response to the first question was pretty interesting. He only puts it…

Ride to Save

There’s a guy at my work who’s doing a two-week solo motorcycle ride around the outback. He’s taking only himself and a GPS, along of course with some food and shelter. Here’s the coolest part of it: he’s doing it all for charity. The charity is called YoungCare, which focuses on providing lifetime care through…

Quality Service Please

The waitress last night informed me that it was going to be a $2 charge for mashed potatoes instead of chips (fries). I was completely annoyed because it’s literally the same thing, just in a different form. And then I got to thinking about how restaurants these days charge for everything. When I was in…

Hair Dye

I was talking to a woman at work about hair dye because she’s trying to go blonde, her more natural colour. Hair dye is an interesting thing. It can make you look completely different in just a couple of hours. It can give someone the look they long for, but can’t get naturally. And it…

The Woman That Changed The Night

I was dancing with my mom last night and we were having a great time! But there was one particular woman there who reminded me what life is supposed to be. My mom and I were dancing in the corner enjoying ourselves when this woman asked if she could join us. She explained that we…

Why Bother

I met an employee that used to work for the company I work for. To be honest I’m not sure what’s going on here cuz supposedly this guy was a complete jerk off. I got the vibe that he was cocky, but I wasn’t overly annoyed. Here’s what I don’t get: if my friends are…

The Eye Story

I went to the eye doctor for the first time today. I’ve never been because I never had an issue with sight. But working on a computer all day, I started to get headaches. I thought it was because I was tired, but they never seemed to go away. Turns out my left eye is…

Retailing Life

I went to the mall the other day and started talking to the cashier about the horrors of retail. Now I’ve never worked in retail before, so I don’t know what it’s like. I only know what bad and good retail service looks like. So I wanted¬†to get the view from the people¬†on the other…

Out With the Bad

I was very proud of my friend today. She stood up for what she wanted, what she believed in, and what she couldn’t stand for. It’s not easy walking away from someone you’ve grown to love and it takes great courage to sit down and have an adult conversation. See she was seeing a guy…

Border Patrol and Love

I was talking to a girl about how her boyfriend has to leave Australia because he has expunged his time allowance on his visa. He can come back, but he can only stay for 90 days at a time. It’s hard being in that position. But think of all the people in the world that…

Just Call me Peggy

I was having a chat with this guy who I less than enjoy the company of. He referred to me as Peggy Olson from Mad Men. Now, I’m sure he meant it as an insult. Having recently finished Mad Men, I was more than ready to defend my television hero and take being called her…
