Somebody told me today that at least 600 young people in New Zealand last year took their own lives. That we have one of the highest rates of teen suicide per capita in the entire world yet we are a country known for its social diversity and positive lifestyles. I’m here to break it to […]Read More Blog 101 – EMOTIONS
So these words are from a late night of both travelling and studying. Studying for what should be my economics examination but wasn’t. This is a short story of the perceived failed lifestyle that so many of us inconsistent students often face. You see, there is nothing liberating about studying. Some people just don’t learn […]Read More Blog 096 – Ride On
Today’s discussion is about giving up drinking alcohol. Not your regular alcoholic confession story but better worded as a design direction statement more than anything. The reason I say design direction is because I see myself as a product of a whole lot of successes and mistakes. Not all necessarily all my own fault but […]Read More Blog 094 QUIT DRINKING

That ANZAC day is important because it serves to commemorate the lives of those who passed away and not a day to blame people or a […]Read More Blog 078 ANZAC DAY – Now Vs Then!
NOTE: Another long conversation, and yes I know, another heavy topic. Sitting in the middle of nowhere on a Sunday afternoon, I thought today might be a good day to reflect on two of the most vicious feelings we ever go through as individuals. Jealousy and paranoia. While this is not in reflection of anything […]Read More Blog 074 Jealousy & Paranoia
On A Lighter Note… You know, it’s not so great to think sometimes that all of your problems might be central to your belief systems. How you treat other people, how you draw pictures, what you perceive to be morally right, what clothes you decide to wear when there’s a formal occasion.
