Confessions of an untiring procrastinator

Confessions of an untiring procrastinator

When was the last time I didn’t leave things to the last minute? Whether it be the piled-up laundry that needs to be sussed or an important assignment due the following week, I stretch out my ‘carefree’ leisure time as much as possible to avoid the troubles my duties bring..

  • What’s your motivation?

    We might not always be aware of what they are, but we certainly do have motivations for the things we choose to do with our time.

  • Love anyway

    It’s interesting to see how views and approaches to morality have evolved through the ages.

  • Jesus is the Best Feminist

    When I think of feminists I tend to think of people like Kate Sheppard who campaigned tirelessly to get women the right to vote in New Zealand or Susan B Anthony who worked on countless campaigns to bring equal rights to both women and African American people in the United States.

  • Tales of the unexpected

    The temptation was too much. It was a hot summers day at university and lying on the grass sunbathing one floor below me were half a dozen engineering students.

  • Is there 1 thing we need to live?

    “What’s 1 thing you need to live?” asked my youngest boy. I thought for a moment – is there only 1 thing I need to live?

  • That which will last

    Tiny. That is what it felt like walking among redwood trees. I was mesmerized and somewhat overwhelmed by these giants. I never imagined that I would feel dwarfed by trees!

  • COVID Courage

    We all love a rousing Bible Scripture to tweet or post to our social media accounts. They become motivational memes and niceties that help us navigate long winters and bad days.

  • The multigenerational blame game

    Resilience is something I write about a lot.

  • Disciples in Lockdown

    Knock, knock. Who’s there? I know it’s not Thomas. He’s the most paranoid of us all. Adamant we stay in lockdown until it’s safe again. Until everything dies down (if you’ll excuse the pun). Until everyone forgets about Jesus, and our lives can get back to normal.

  • Marriage and long-term relationships

    The Facebook post caught my eye. It was focused on pointers on how to make long term relationships work and had insights from couples who had been through tough times.

  • Lest We Forget

    On April 25 1915, 16,000 Australian and New Zealand Army Corps troops established a beachhead in a small cove on the Gallipoli Peninsula, at the Western edge of the Turkish Ottoman Empire.
