My Pet Peeve

I've never really liked the phrase 'pet peeve', but it is what it is. You know what I really just can't stand? Microwaves. Hear me out. (That's right, a bit of a personal article for a change, but don't get too comfy). I know they're an amazing piece of kit, and whether or not they… Continue reading My Pet Peeve

Blog 50 – What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger – Interpreted

I've tuned down the humour for this article. It's genuinely something to ponder about. "What doesn't kill you, make you stronger" is a phrase that has always been rather popular with the unwashed masses. Heck, It's a pretty darn good saying an' all, don't-cha think? .... Don't-chaaa? Commonly used to raise one's spirit, usually a lie… Continue reading Blog 50 – What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger – Interpreted
