Precautionary Car Service

You’re not going to believe this, but I’m at a car service again. This time, at least, it’s not because of any actual issues with my vehicle. After my trip to Adelaide, I was ready to settle back into my normal routine of being mad at my publisher for not letting me keep writing my […]

I Hate My Car

I am so so upset. My birthday was absolutely ruined by my parents who didn’t get me a new car as a gift as they had always promised. Last night around the time of my birthday speeches, my parents drove right up to the venue and started honking. My parents weren’t actually invited to my […]

Irregular Driver

Driving my car has never been my favourite thing to do. I moved to a share house in Adelaide for one year a couple of years ago and I never even brought my car with me. The public transport near me was just really good and it gave me an excuse to not have to […]
