I guess I’ve reached that stage in the year when I’ve decided that it’s time to rest up and reflect on the year so far. In light of recent events heading back to Wellington to continue studying, personal matters and the creation of my blog I think it’s time we slowed down a notch and discussed […]Read More Blog 085 Growing Up

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: This conversation is by no means to encourage smoking marijuana. I don’t smoke nor do I drink alcohol. My opinion is only to discuss the legality of growing, possessing and smoking marijuana in New Zealand, not a lecture on how to live your life. Today I want to talk about how our government is […]Read More Blog 077 Legalising Marijuana – The Age Old Debate!
