Time is Wasted

Goodbye VicBears

Reading Time: 3 minutes As some of you may already know, and others may not, I made the choice to resign my position as Secretary of VicBears recently. It wasn’t a decision that I made lightly, but one that I decided to do for a number of reasons. Given that there’s been a bit of controversy around VicBears, and …

The One That Got Away

Reading Time: 3 minutes As I approach my 30th (fine, 32nd) birthday, and since moving back to Perth, I’ve been thinking more on the relationships that didn’t eventuate to anything because I ended them. People who were genuinely good people and who I’d otherwise have considered compatible but came along at the wrong time in my life. Rugby Player …

The Quarantine (1)

Reading Time: 6 minutes I half-wrote about my experiences in hotel quarantine, and then decided I couldn’t be bothered finishing it. My reasons were mainly that it didn’t seem relevant to anyone anymore and honestly, it was a sad and depressing experience that I couldn’t be bothered going through my head about. Months later, WA has had a security …

Making Time, Before It’s Too Late

Reading Time: 4 minutes A couple of weeks ago I was asked, through my mum, by my grandma, that my great uncle wanted to see me. My great uncle had recently moved from his home in rural Western Australia to a retirement village. I hadn’t seen my great uncle in several years. The Incident When I was about 17 …

It’s Sad, But It Ain’t a Tragedy (1)

Reading Time: 4 minutes Trigger warning for this post, it deals with death. It also deals with logic over emotion. What’s said in this post will not likely fit in with many people’s emotions when it comes to death of loved ones. I’m also not arguing liability here, that’s for lawyers to do. This is part 1 of a …

Preview: Untitled Space Opera

Reading Time: 5 minutes For quite some time I’ve had ideas bouncing around in my head, of a science fiction universe and stories within that universe. I watch a lot of scifi shows and played a lot of scifi games. For whatever reason, they’re something that both interests me and inspires me. I never really thought of myself as …

United We Fall

Reading Time: 6 minutes Firstly, I’m not normally the kind of person to get salty after working in a job that has a bad manager or bad management. I’ve worked in plenty of places like that before and I’m sure, given I’ve got at least another 30 years of working career left, I will do it again at some …

Goodbye 2020, and Go Fuck Yourself

Reading Time: 2 minutes If you thought 2020 was a fantastic year, please let me know where you got the drugs from. Because if you were pleased with 2020 and what you’ve accomplished, those must be some very strong drugs. For most people, myself included, 2020 was a year of failures. It was the year of COVID, after all. …

Transitions

Reading Time: 6 minutes I want to start this post off with some warnings and disclaimers as this is a sensitive topic for some people, and also contains a few things that I may not have shared with people involved. Disclaimer/Trigger Warnings/Etc. Firstly, this post might contain some things that people from the trans community might find hurtful, this …

Stupid Hosting

Reading Time: 2 minutes Not sure if anyone else noticed, but I sure as hell did. Over the past couple of weeks, whenever I’ve edited my blog, or made changes, or the wind was blowing in the wrong direction in the Isle of Man, WordPress would crash. In addition to this, when my blog was working, it would run …
