Removing his glasses, he rubbed at his face wearily. The long day showed in the bags beneath his deep brown eyes as he reached for the long-cold coffee on the corner of the mahogany study table. He saved the word document, an article on terrorism, and stretched his hands high into the air. He was happy with the paper. It had numerous sources and felt like it was well researched and well written – something he could say more and more often about the pieces he wrote. While he’d been out of school...

An endless void. A soundless expanse. Endless in nature; indifferent in intent. Space.The dead satellite cube, having completed its purpose, flies throughthe vastness. No bigger than a toaster, uncaring for the damage it wouldinflict. The cold light of the sun bounces from its purposeless solar panels, glintingmenacingly as it spins through the air. It predatorily stalks an innocent,unknowing Foxtel satellite. Approaching from behind at a terrifying speed.The collision, like everything in the un...

There are plenty of ways to die. Enter Gary Hoy, an enigmatic and skilled lawyer. Having graduated as an engineer before studying law and moving into the industry, Gary was a well-respected member of the firm.

As he always did with these groups, he threw himself at the glass to prove it. Whereas previously he had b...

If you’re anything like me, you’re devilishly good-looking, charming, humorous, confident without being cocky and most importantly humble.Just kidding, I’m lazy and mostly useless :) I often feel as though I have no time in my day. I rush around everywhere, sacrificing things that would take thirty seconds because in my head I’ve got something more important to do. This is generally followed by me wasting my life on YouTube. I’ll start by clicking on a music video and an hour later BAM, there I...

Happy Birthday To MeI just celebrated my 19th birthday! Woo happy birthday me! It was an amazing day, thanks for asking. I slept in till eleven in the morning, went to lunch, and watched Netflix. Very productive. Very awe-inspiring. The best thing about my birthday, however, is that I share it with my mum. Yup my mum gave birth to me on her birthday, poor woman. Worst. Birthday present. Ever. Fortunately for me though I’m honoured to share the same birthday with such an amazing, strong, inspirin...

PART 1A wide, warm smile spills across your daughter’s face as she snuggles into the crook of your arm. The mirth of her giggle is infectious as she happily watches the cut to the credits of Frozen for the third time that week. While you admit you might not have been paying full attention during all three screenings (it had been a long week at work), the pure content on her face makes it all worth it. A small voice that all parents have also acknowledges that it’s a good way to get her tired eno...
