Postal Survey Madness

In the last year, watching Australian Politics has been like a fucking soap opera. Just when you think shit can’t get any more ridiculous, someone goes and does something else that beggars belief. I suppose I should be glad I’m not an American right about now, but the donkeys running our country aren’t really much…

What Now?

Hello everyone! Did you miss me? Probably not. Let’s face it, only about 3.6 people read this blog and I’m fairly confident that, apart from the occasional rando from Europe, about 95% of visitors share my surname.For those of you that are not my stalkerish parents, I’ll let you in on what’s been going on…

Eye Can See (A Dodgy Pun)

Several weeks ago I suffered a rather unfortunate injury while playing dodgeball. Normally I wouldn’t complain about being hurt playing sports, because that’s simply a risk you take whenever you play sports and I’ve collected a wonderful trophy case of sports injuries: Carted off the BMX track by an ambulance crew in C-Spine precautions; Dislocated…

Breakin’ It Down

It’s an unwritten rule that you’re not supposed to say shit like, “Well what the fuck else could go wrong?” when you’re having a day that stinks like a rotten armpit. You might think it, but you’ll never ever actually say it because the subsequent shit storm that will rain down on you will turn…

Nervous Breakdowns: A How To Guide

Welcome to True Writes, a website where I, True, sometimes ramble on about shit that I love or hate for the simple catharsis that writing brings, especially when random strangers validate my feelings by liking or sharing my rants. Today I’m going to give you some hints and tips on how to really maximise your…

Death by Cretoxyrhina

The other day I nearly met my maker in the most embarassing of ways. Picture this: I am driving to work at 10:30 at night. I’ve just passed the Rex Lookout halfway between Cairns and Port Douglas and I have about 30km to go at this point. It’s a dark night, relatively cloudy but not…

GISHWHES 2014!

GISHWHES. Otherwise known as “The Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen” or, that thing that Castiel from Supernatural keeps talking about. Do I really need to tell you what it is? I think the title is kind of self-explanatory. Misha Collins likes scavenger hunts and he decided to make one that can…

Japan and Unexpected Surprises

So, life got busy for a while. Now I’m living the dream. ┬áSeriously. I got back from Japan a few days ago to discover that I got the job I wanted and that a suite of poems I wrote (you may remember I absolutely hate poetry) was actually highly commended and it was recommended I…

2014: Year of Doing Stuff

Most people look at me with shock, horror and sometimes, (very rarely) awe, when I tell them that last year I worked full time and did two full time uni degrees with a child. Whether they can’t fathom doing it themselves or I truly am mad I don’t know. I tried to explain it to…
