To quote the iconic rapper Slick Rick ‘Hey Young World‘, with Christmas fast approaching it’s at times like this where I take a moment to reflect on life’s peculiar intricacies.

Keywords being; ‘reflect’ and ‘time’…. ‘Time’, in particular, is a daunting thing right? As cliche as it may sound, time really does fly by.

When you sit back and really think about how we a society have progressed – or regressed – it really does boggle the mind.


Think about it, 10 years ago we didn’t have access to apps like Angry Birds and Tinder to keep us occupied while we sit on the toilet.

Even something like WhatsApp, which is so ingrained in regards to how we communicate with each other that we couldn’t possibly imagine life without it, is barely 10 years old.

So in that respect, we’re about to blow your collective little minds and present to you…
