A couple of years ago, I read an article written by a married man who was describing marriage as work. Work that he happened to come across just to realize that he was having the choice between keeping at it or quitting. I wish I could remember where I read this article, or the name of the author. When I read it, it first struck me as pretty odd to see marriage not as a relationship, but as a job… At that time, I had been...

I’ve always been quite fascinated with names and the first thing I think of when I know a new baby has been born, apart from “Is he or she healthy?”, is “What’d they call him/her? God, I hope it doesn’t suck.” And if I know the person well or the information has been made public prior to birth, I want to know; I need to know. I can’t help it; I’m a bit of a name snob.

Ever since starting my job I’ve become a lot more peeved at certain things, people, actions etc. I don’t know whether it’s because there is a lot of pressure on me to do my job right, or whether I’m not seeing my friends as much as I’d like to, or whether I’m just unhappy in my job… I just don’t know. First off, pressure. This month’s campaign is a huge one. December is the busiest time for gyms and I happen to work for a national gym...
