6 Things School Didn’t Teach

It will undoubtedly surprise you to hear that there are numerous things I don’t know…in fact, I would go to say that I don’t know many things at all. So yeah, I don’t know most things. That much is true, at least I know that. When looking for someone or something to blame (rather than just accepting IContinue reading “6 Things School Didn’t Teach”

A Caged Bird (Poem)

{I see myself, but it doesn’t look like me, I see myself – but what should I be? Yes, what should I be? And what should I become? Be a dreamer – or achiever – you can only pick one.} “Ohhh, you want the bullet train to fame my boy?” No, no, no! Just theContinue reading “A Caged Bird (Poem)”

Travel Tips!

Okay, finally got down to this one! I’m certainly no expert, and don’t really claim to be – but I feel like I can at least impart some advice I’ve picked up along the way! I will say this; they are (mostly) all just common sense – but that doesn’t mean they aren’t worth saying!  Hope they help! IfContinue reading “Travel Tips!”

How To Make Friends

Everyone likes friends, right? And no…I’m not referring to the sitcom (although I totally could be, and the point would still be valid!) But how do we make these friends? Again, good luck in Friendsville…my friends. If you have a video request you can leave a comment, or send me an email – if it’s a cool/interestingContinue reading “How To Make Friends”

DARK CIRCLES! (And How to Get RID!)

All you need to know when it comes to getting rid of those pesky under eye dark circles…well, kinda.  SIDE NOTE: I have no idea what that voice is supposed to be…like, at all… http://www.facebook.com/storytimewithjohn http://www.youtube.com/storytimewithjohn101

How to be Happy.

Everyone wants to be happy, and to live a happy life. It’s somewhat of a sweeping generalisation, I know…but one which pretty much holds true across the board. I mean unless you’re a homicidal maniac who enjoys other people’s pain and suffering – or a gym enthusiast vegan who enjoys the masochistic pleasure of seeminglyContinue reading “How to be Happy.”

Edward Sausage-Hands

How does a person afflicted with stubby little pork sausage fingers even begin to play the guitar? The mind boggles… Oh, and I know I am just whining and complaining – after all my Dad, his brother – and one of my own brothers play guitar very well. But still…help a guy out? Or maybeContinue reading “Edward Sausage-Hands”

Wonderlust!

What is this fabled ‘wanderlust’ that I see strewn around quite literally every form of social media these days? By the looks of it it’s something to do with handwriting fonts, pictures of maps, and photos of fields, seas, and mysterious pathways…right? …ahh wait no, here it is: ‘Wanderlust; a yearning or desire to travel andContinue reading “Wonderlust!”

Can I Retire?

At my gym* there are a whole load of elderly people…how many exactly I’m not sure – but if I was to estimate I’d say approximately three nursing home’s worth. They’re all quite nice and friendly; I nod – they nod, that sort of thing…or perhaps they say something and I reply with a middleContinue reading “Can I Retire?”

Broke? Travel Anyway!

I often get emails, and messages from people – asking the same question – “how do you afford travel? Are you from a rich family? Do you have connections? Did you get some crazy compensation deal – and have decided to blow it all on roaming the world rather than making sound investments?!”  Well, no.Continue reading “Broke? Travel Anyway!”
