Hi :) I’m Jack Glendenning and I am a big fan of music. The following article is a top 10 list of my favourite songs of all time. The songs were gathered and pondered over for a while to ensure that they were correctly in my top 10 favourite of all time. So here we go. Buckle yourself in and we’ll go from number 10…

10. Mockingbird — Eminem
This song by Marshall Mathers lands as my number 10 favourite song of all time. It goes over the tough times Eminem went through as a younger person and as a father…


Hello there, my name is Just Jack. First name Just and second name Jack. Most people call me Jack cause it’s easier. Myself and Captain Cooked have been friends for a while. We became close friends when we both met eating dinner at the same table at a club. We’ve been friends for a while, so we know a little bit about each other. The night we met, Captain Cooked had a chicken Schnitzel and I had myself a chicken Schnitzel as well. So we kind of share similar interests.

Lately, myself and Captain Cooked have been talking about our…


Connie the plum tree

Hi, I’m Connie and I’m a plum tree out the back of the Smith’s house. They have a backyard and I’m right in the middle of it. …


Today Craig and I were going to go fishing. It was his idea. We bought a new tinny last weekend and we were keen to take it for a spin.

“Hey Jimmy let’s grab those big rods like we’re going to catch big Betsy!” exclaimed Craig. “Alright let’s do it and start to get cooking,” I told Craig. I had a feeling that we were going to catch something today.

After grabbing the rods, I ran over to the fridge and grabbed the bait we needed to make the catch today. It took a while but once I got the…


I was born to stop time. My name is Alex Wilde and I was born with these powers. Even though I was born with these powers, I’ve never really told anyone that I can do it.

As a four year old child I asked my mum for an ice-cream. She said I couldn’t have one. I got so angry and something clicked in my brain and all time stopped. Mum was frozen and so was the ice-cream shop. I went over to the shop and stole a scoop of vanilla strawberry ice-cream. It was some of the best tasting ice-cream…


Hello everyone and thanks for clicking onto this if you did. The following is a story that I’ve written as apart of Braille House’s writing competition of 2020. It’s a short story about a man called Cruise and his dog performing on Australia’s Got Talent. I enjoy writing stories and it’s always good if they can give someone else some joy to read them.

Hi there my name is Rudey and I love Yoga to bits. My girlfriend isn’t that big of a fan but I don’t mind. As long as I’m having fun I guess.

I was in the kitchen and I heard some noise coming from the lounge room. It sounded like a chainsaw just humming as it was turned on. Then all of a sudden I heard some screeches of tyres drifting around a corner. I heard a fart…

Dolphin out of water

2018’s nearly coming to a close and so this article’s just about spreading positive energy (near and far). Each one of these is just an idea, and like ideas, ideas change with time. These were ones that managed to get stuck with me and encourage me to do good things so far in 2018:

  • The only fair judgement of a person is their good heart
  • Sucking at something is just the first step towards being kinda good at something
  • You are everything you are meant to be
  • Unbalanced moments in the past can help us appreciate a balance today
