    You don’t have to be the best

    Monday, September 1, 2014

    You don’t have to be special or different or interesting. You don’t have to be a high achiever or do anything even remotely impressive. Everywhere you go, everywhere you look, the world is urging you to succeed. To follow your dreams. To be more, have more, do more. Guess what? You don’t have to. There is [...]

    Where do you want to go in life? Imagine that your brain is a GPS and you need to program in an address. Where do you want to go? You need this information because your brain really is (metaphysically) a GPS. It will try very hard to take you where it thinks you want to go. The [...]

    Doubt

    Monday, August 25, 2014

    Doubt is poisonous to happiness. It will eat the heart out of a flower in bud. I had this experience recently when I was dating a guy who was confused about what he wanted. He claimed to want me but also wanted to try and sort things out with his wife (they’re separated). We went [...]

    Woman seeks World’s Biggest Douchelord

    Friday, August 22, 2014

    Because I now have a vacancy. I have the remarkable ability to find the douchiest douchebags and fall in love them. Do you have a lot of baggage? A litter of illegitimate children? A wife squirrelled away somewhere? Maybe a prescription drug habit? Do you have a list of health complaints that would rival my grandmother? [...]

    What will $30 buy you around the world?

    Wednesday, August 20, 2014

    Travelling on a budget makes me really nervous as I am horrible at managing money. When I am overseas, I want to do everything and see everything which generally means I spend everything as well. What adds to this problem is that some people seem to be able to travel the world on tiny budgets [...]

5 things to do in SF

I totally understand why people fall in love with San Francisco. I stayed in Mission with my dear friend Tennille and it was so damn good. All the houses are these funny little 1950s walk-ups in coral pastels. You can buy a burrito the size of your arm for USD$7.50, there are dive bars galore [...]

France for Euro 20

If you enjoyed watching the World Cup in Brazil as much as about three-quarters of the planet’s population seemed to – then maybe it’s time to start thinking about a trip to France for the next big international football tournament in two years’ time? The UEFA EURO 2016 Championships are scheduled to be held in [...]

5 things to do in New York

New York. Even if you haven’t been, you know it. Manhattan has a kind of mythology attached to it; part Gotham city, part island of artists and thinkers. Visiting is as much about joining the dots from scenes in TV and movies as it is about getting a grip on what New York really is. [...]

Sydney Harbour Marriott review (with a happy ending)

So some of you may remember my man and I were having some, erm, issues; namely the fact that he is still married to someone else. It’s not as bad as it sounds (he’s separated) but after many wines and many tears, it can be confusing. I thought we’d broken up. He thought we were [...]

Selling

I have always found the concept of selling uncomfortable but the truth is that we’re all selling, all the time. Whether we’re asking for a pay rise, ‘promoting’ ourselves on a dating site or simply getting dressed in the morning, we’re all sending very clear message about our worth. This is where things get tricky. [...]
