Gnome Town Electricians

Every day is a new adventure at Gnome Town Electricians. See, electrical work in Gnome Town isn’t like electrical work everywhere else in Melbourne. In a regular town, electrical work might involve installing a heating system, fixing some wires or set ...

My Accounting Confession

Alright, I have something that I have to get off my chest. I guess you could say that I’m coming out, in a sense. This has been eating away at me for ages now and I just have to tell someone, even if it is a random stranger on the internet who knows n ...

What Video Now?

I have been making videos for a long time now, and I think I’m starting to burn out. I never thought I’d be sick of a job that requires me to use my imagination, but it turns out even that can be a grind when you have to come up with something new eve ...

Brake Pad Blues

I’m so done with this year, and beyond keen to get down to the coast for summer. The internship with the agricultural accountancy firm has been worthwhile, but I’m not used to this in-land life. Time to whack my surfboard on top of the station wagon and h ...
