Smell the rain, Smell the rain, don’t see it The dampened tarmac aroma intensifies as cars go flying by like drive bys at midnight Feel the heat of the rays on your skin, Hairs on your neck rise like budding blossoms in spring Hear the drops of tears hit the leaves, leaves crushed by commuters,Continue reading “Poem: Sensation”

Oh The Quarrels Of Buying A New Camera
So, I’m not placing any bets on becoming the next Steven Spielberg anytime soon, although needless to say I quite fancy my chances at dabbling in a bit of vlogging in the near future. In addition to perhaps snapping a few odd pictures of little wilting dandelions, or, if I time it right, the mugshotContinue reading “Oh The Quarrels Of Buying A New Camera”
A Second Chance To Make A First Impression
My second time uploading this because no one seems to like an introduction! (*Cue introductory moody af facial expression ) I know breaking the ice is awkward but let’s just make a start on finding the chisel, eh?

Tough Mudder – S.O.S
For any naive soul out there who doesn’t know what ‘Tough Mudder’ is exactly, I suggest you keep it that way. For it seems to be the hybrid spawn of Satan and someone your mother dearest just isn’t too fond of. In other words – it’s going to be hell. And guess who just signedContinue reading “Tough Mudder – S.O.S”

Stress – a word on the tip of everyone’s tongue who’s either just f*cked up or who’s fearing that the f*ck up is just around the corner, kind of like your creepy neighbor. So perhaps it’s easy to realize when exactly you may be feeling stressed, but how about we have a little chat aboutContinue reading “6 THINGS YOU’RE DOING THAT’S ACTUALLY MAKING YOUR STRESS WORSE!”
I control you. From the cradle to the grave, I will own you. You can smell me, hold me, taste me, lose me. Yet you cannot refrain from the goal to retain me. You lie to everyone about me, conduct deceitful acts to earn me, learn for me, learn from me, either way, likeContinue reading “Poem: Rorrim”
4 Ways To Be More Proactive
Let’s face it, we all like our lie ins on weekends (and weekdays if we can get away with it). We like it when someone else cooks us dinner and when someone else cleans up those dirty dinner plates. We like it when another human being empties those rotten bins with leaking bin juice beforeContinue reading “4 Ways To Be More Proactive”
Poem – Lost
Below is a poem I wrote in a state of confusion one evening. I was at a loss with what my purpose in life should be. Frustrated that I had so many thoughts in my mind yet took so little action: Lost I feel lost, There’s a voice in my head that can never beContinue reading “Poem – Lost”
7 Emotions Everyone’s Been Through When Trying To Find A Job
Let’s face it, finding a job can be like finding a needle in a haystack…..which has just been packaged into weighted crates…and dumped at the bottom of the Pacific ocean. Well, OK, maybe not this extreme but the painstaking process really can be an emotional roller coaster. So let’s buckle up and see what liesContinue reading “7 Emotions Everyone’s Been Through When Trying To Find A Job”
How NOT To Get Hired
What’s a job if it isn’t but the only way to make some money so we can afford to feed our scrawny selves in hope of keeping up appearances enough to attract some other average being to spawn with so to carry on our everlasting dreams of immortality. So, maybe the above is a bitContinue reading “How NOT To Get Hired”
No Good, Bad And Ugly Work Habits
As creatures of habit we therefore succumb to many repetitive behaviours we wish we hadn’t! As I wallow in this thought and share them in writing by teaming up with Go Think Big, I suddenly remember, my annoying colleague wants another tea, no sugar. So whilst I brew the perfect cuppa, why don’t you haveContinue reading “No Good, Bad And Ugly Work Habits”
2nd Place Poem – End Hunger UK – ‘A Closed Fist’
‘A Closed Fist’ – a spin on the meaning to hurt someone. A closed fist can be a punch but it could also be inferred to as a hand that is not offering food and therefore hurting someone by starving them.
I wanted the poem to show how it’s essential to be kind to one another. Afterall you never know where someone might be in their life, or who they may become. And perhaps you may even find yourself needing their help oneday. The bigger picture is that we are humans we need food and we need to put ourselves in eachothers shoes more often, especially when it comes down to this essential element of life – to prevent starvation.
