In any living environment, the thing that we value the most is our own space. Space to do whatever we want. To cook, to clean or to listen to loud depressing music eating a sandwich in bum pants. For sure, flat life has it’s up’s and downs but I guess it’s how you mould those […]Read More Blog 095 Flatting – Part One
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
Let’s do this! First off for those who don’t know, I am a nineteen-year-old male student studying in Wellington city. I hope you enjoy this discussion as much as I did and if you have any comments please feel free to leave them at the end of the blog! Why does it matter what I […]Read More Blog 093 Sexism/Feminism & What I Think
Cloud based computing – Allows people to connect via a server system that lets them connect and record information online. Today’s discussion is more of a one-man rant than a civilised conversation between two people. The whole concept of thinking you are dumber than you actually are. It seems crazy that so many of us […]Read More Blog 090 What If We Had A Fully Cloud-Based University?
Today’s Challenge: I want you to think about what one thing that challenges you physically from doing that you have always wanted to do whether that’s running a marathon, swimming an ocean mile etc. The next thing I want is for you to actually ask yourself if you can do it or not. What is […]Read More Blog 086 Bravery & Persistence
Today’s chat comes from the view of a cyclist who uses New Zealand’s roads to get from A to B. We’ll cover the basic principles of riding solo versus riding in a group and we’ll also discuss the difference of opinions in the eyes of motorists who infrequently respect the safety of those on skinny […]Read More Blog 081 Cycling On NZ Roads
We all know what retail assistants look like three hours before their shift ends. The meta-smile, can’t be bothered-ness seeping through in conversation. Weary legs and a hangover, four hours sleep without breakfast, trashed the house and unmade bed, student loan and a job in retail that hardly covers launching costs. Yeah, living the dream. […]Read More Blog 080 Working In Retail & Hospitality
Though today’s conversation is aimed at discussing how propaganda is still alive and well in today’s economy, I would like to emphasise the significance of lives of those lost. 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
WARNING: Foul Language and A Shit Tonne of Bitching. Moving back to Blenheim for the Easter Holiday period gave me a quick glimpse into the ruralist lifestyle accommodation that only two months ago I was so used to. It really shines a light on socio-economics and how much of a contrast there is between the two. […]Read More Blog 072 Urbanism Versus Ruralism?
