    I often get asked if I'm Aboriginal,

    usually by complete strangers. When I tell them I'm not they look at me in disbelief and dispute my ethnicity. I have had arguments and racial slurs yelled at me. I don't feel the need anymore to prove myself as I once did. What for? I don't care anymore. I do love living in...

    Road Rage

    There is a road between my home and the clinic, where I work. It is a long, straight and has only a single lane each way. It's a fast road, with no traffic lights and has a 90 km speed limit. As you can imagine, one slow car ruins the show for everyone behind and on this day...

    Does anyone have any idea on

    why my iPad takes 8 hours to fully charge, but my phone (iPhone 5C) takes at most an hour? I've been charging my iPad since 2pm, at that point it was at 5% and it's only at 23% now. It's not the cord or anything because I use the same one to charge my phone.

    Dear Adam Goodes I am sick of this saga.

    I was at the West Coast/Sydney game on the weekend. No I didn't boo you. But I can sympathize with those that have. Not on a racial level. I take no issue with you being Indigenous. I do take issue with your self righteousness and your arrogance and your ignorance. I'm sorry...
