Writing this blog gives me a lot of opportunity to reflect on my life – I have referred to it many times as “free therapy” because just by writing through my problems, reflecting and explaining what I intended to do has helped me get through some tough times.
I sometimes come across unwanted reflection as I start to dig deeper and I get that horrible twitch in my head of when I have been truly wronged. Continue reading “The Best Revenge”
Many years ago I was on a night out with University friends. After many drinks I sat settled in the corner, I got talking with a girl on my course and some how we got to discussing her traveler background. This led to the revelation that she had the ‘sight’ – the skill of being able to see into the future.
“Would you like me to read your palm?” she said.
I laughed and said sure… I wasn’t quite sure if she was actually serious, but next thing I know she grabbed my hand and started to read my palm…. Continue reading “A long time…”
I stopped watching the Apprentice years ago because it was the same repetitive format.
But I read a piece on one of the finalists business ideas and I couldn’t help resist giving my opinion when it was revealed that finalist Vana Koutsomitis is a dating app called ‘PlayDate’.
Although the decision was most likely made months and months ago I have to say that this is a very stupid investment. I won’t tackle this from a business point of view but a male with experience of online dating point of view. Continue reading “Love, sex and apps…”

When I was younger and I had insecurities and self-doubt about meeting someone, my mum would always say
“You only find love when you stop looking for it”
Despite my young naive age – I thought that was bullshit. To find someone required some effort. Continue reading “When you least expect it”
So much to do in a day, yet so little time to work on my goals.
If I have been out with Vicky, talked to my mum, gone walking with my dad or helped out my brother, I can forgive myself for shirking on my goals.
“Always make time for your loved ones. They are your life and the reason you strive to be more…..”
Manifesto of Perfection – Goal Setting Month
As I reached my 50th post yesterday, I decided to take a step back and reflect on articles I have written so far.
I looked through the growing archives and I have picked out my five favourite pieces for you the reader to consider reading.
5) The Face in the Mirror
I randomly remember a guy from my early adult years, who was pretty irrelevant – until he killed himself. This made me think about how I could avoid becoming that person. Continue reading “My favourite posts (so far)”
I once worked for social services. I was involved in a case where both parents were essentially retarded. And I don’t mean retarded in the Internet insult kind of way.
They had one kid after another, until the school of one of the kids raised a concern about their ability to protect the children.
Despite what you see on TV, the response isn’t necessarily taking children away, as that would be expensive. Continue reading “Sometimes love isn’t enough”
