I’m not ashamed to admit it. When scrolling through my daily read suggestion I will click on a story. Not because of the catchy headline or that quirky photo. No, I will click on that story because the author looks cute.
Is it wrong that I might be using Medium as a dating site?
I find myself doing this more since writing my bio in the publication About Me Stories. Occasionally I will read what other people have written about themselves. But if the author looks cute and she has that cheeky smile I’m clicking on that story. …
I certainly don’t have long flowing locks. My hair is curly. Cute when I was 6 but not so much now. So, I keep it short. Even if I did have long hair, I wouldn’t be scrunching up it up to form a bun on the top of my head. Like a hairy dumpling.
Jesus didn’t have a man bun so why are men all over the world sporting this hairstyle? There must be another reason.
Is it a personal GPS or radar system?
Did it start as a pimple that you ignored and then calcified?
Maybe the twin you…
I love a good massage. A moment you can relax while all the stresses and worries are rubbed away.
I’m not a massage snob. No need to for me to go to one of those fancy alternative Day Spa’s. Built out of a shipping container nestled into a hillside in the middle of nowhere. I certainly don’t need someone called Unicorn Fern Tree placing hot rocks on my spine. Not just any rocks. Rocks that Buddha himself used to pave his driveway.
No, a simple massage parlour in your local shopping centre. Nestled between a fried chicken and mobile phone…
Do you find your day is taken up with mind-numbing pointless meetings? The morning meeting followed by the monthly update meeting then the quarterly sales meeting followed by what do we get Karen from accounting for her 40th birthday, meeting.
We do this so we can exchange ideas, give updates on projects and discuss things like, “How do we make our day more productive?”
Usually, I find after a meeting I know less than I did when I first went in.
Is there anything worse? Well, actually there is. It’s called the “Micro Meeting.”
These meetings are very organic and…
Welcome to Dansky Dan Land. Well, Australia. Yes, we do have Kangaroos bouncing down the middle of the street. And yes Drop Bears are real.
Grew up in a mining town in the north of Western Australia. Only child with divorced parents who lived under the same roof but had different lives.
It was a great place to grow up. So much freedom. No shoes, no shirt no hat. Camping fishing and playing with your friends till the street lights came on.
I was always been creative and had a vivid imagination. Maybe it was the only child thing. Had…
One evening while I was flicking through the tv channels I came across an Animal Welfare advert. It showed the appalling condition in which tigers were living in a private zoo. How they were captured in the wild and then locked in small cages for the amusement of inhumane masters.
What could I do to help these majestic animals? Well, the answer flashed on my tv: “For only $19.95 per month, you can adopt a tiger and help end the suffering”.
So, with a credit card in hand, I phoned the number and signed up to adopt a tiger. It…
What a crazy year we have had together. I was never really looking for someone to share my life. But a chance meeting in a Chinese wet market in Wuhan City. Me an oxygen carbon-based life form and you an RNA that is covered by a nucleocapsid, a layer consisting of the M protein or membrane and an envelope protein.
Two vastly different people but we seem to have a connection. Most people didn’t see it in the beginning. People said you were a bad boy and couldn’t be trusted. By then it was too late. …
I never really heard the term Unrequited Love till my mid-twenties. Once it was explained to me, I realized I suffer from this most of my high school years. In fact, many years after. If I were honest decades would be more accurate. All because of a red-headed girl I meet in High School. Let’s call her Kate. Naturally not her real name.
A teenager’s road if full of twist and turn. Ups and downs. There is no clear road map. That was the same for me growing up. So being in love with a girl made life even more…
After gruelling research on the internet, I’m convinced our Health and Safety Manager is a Space Lizard.
It was 2 hours well spent to finally uncover this imposter was among us. What sealed the deal was a site claiming that 12 million Americans believe these human clad reptiles are ruling the world. This was backed-up by Urban Dictionary.
It’s the internet, right! Has to be true.
I could name these people but out of the fear of being sued, again. I’ll let you do your own research. I just don’t have the money to pay the lawyers. I’m already living…
We all read plenty of articles about what to do during a job interview. Like, make sure you keep eye contact, keep your answer clear and to the point.
It can be a stressful process.
You have one shot to convince your potential new employer you are the right person for the job. Or at least get you to the second interview.
People who interview well have done all the groundwork beforehand. There are plenty of simple things you can do before an interview. Sometimes we can overlook these steps. Especially if you have been employed for many years and…
