Well Serviced BMW

When people look at me, they see a privileged upper middle class young woman who has had the world handed to her. Whilst they’re not wrong, what they don’t know is that I’ve worked for every single opportunity I’ve been given. I acknowledge that I was lucky to receive the opportunities in the first place, …

Career Coaching

I turn thirty next weekend, and as a result I’ve been spending a lot of time reminiscing about my 20s.

Broken Car Aircon

My kids and I are sweltering. It’s Western Australia in the middle of summer and it has gotten to the point where no one is comfortable. The streets are barren. It’s even too hot for any flies to come out and annoy people. That’s when you know that the heat is just too much. At …
