Why is it that I feel like I know very little about how to do things, yet when I was younger, my parents and other adults around me seemed to know everything?

You get injured? Mum knows what cream and treatment to apply, and she has what’s required in stock.…

Getting a vasectomy is not an uncommon procedure. Countless men go through the operation each day. Some have it done in a short procedure while awake, while others have to go via a general anesthetic. Generally, it should be quick, with minor discomfort for a couple of days, with a low risk of anything worse than that.…

You learn from what you see around you. You learn from those people you spend time with, those books you read, those movies you watch and those news stories that make headlines.

Things like Snapchat, Tinder, and whatever else appears as a software trend seems to come and go without me even knowing.…

I remember when I was a child. Probably from the age of 5 until 15. We had 1 TV in the house (that probably ages me by itself), and my dad was the master of it. We got to what after school TV at times, and various Saturday morning shows, but largely, I remember my Dad watching the news.…

I read something once, and it goes a little something like this;

Think of the thing you feel you can’t do without. The thing that you think is the best thing.

There’s a whole market for eating healthy, detox, diet and fitness. Countless books, videos and websites contain conflicting advice on how you should live your life to be the best version of you.
