By Te Puawai o Te Atua Waller Nō hea au? Kua whakatō tāku kākano ki Rangiātea, ērangi e puawai ana te putiputi ki raro ia Matua te Tapu, a Maunga Taranaki. My seed is sown into the roots of Rangiātea, yet the flower blooms on the Taranaki mountain. Wellington City is the extended home for […]

Wouldn’t you know it, it’s only our second column for the year and ya boy already has writer’s block (bodes well, I know).

Wellington has always been home to me. While my friends left for Auckland, Christchurch, or Dunedin, I stayed put. There’s nowhere else in the world I feel as comfortable as here. I’ve lived in other cities for a few months at a time, and I’d like to live somewhere else again. But speaking for myself, […]

I’m in university, dating my first boyfriend! I’ve been dating this one guy for about six months. I’m about to meet his parents. I love the boy. He’s awesome and hilarious and sweet. But…he’s going on to postgrad, while I’ve got 2–3 more years left. I feel extremely guilty for thinking that, in the future, […]

DREAM: Dreamt I trimmed my pubes which blocked the shower drain and flooded the house, dream diagnoser pls interpret. Dear dreamer, This dream shows, mostly, a lack of imagination.
