Career juggling in 2 countries plus climate change and LGBTQ+ issues.
It’s Boxing Day and I’m currently sitting in bed. The last couple of days have been really nice and I’m feeling relaxed but also motivated. I’ve been eating, drinking a bit, watching loads of movies and not much else tbh. All this chilling out has got me thinking about 2018 and I’m excited for what’s to come. 2017 has been a year of growth and I’m happy to end it having ironed out some of the creases in my life. I’ve managed to create a balance amongst my careers which I’ve been trying to do for the last few years. In addition the blog has helped me to develop a better understanding of who I am and where I’m going. All in all things are really good and I’m feeling pretty darn grateful. View Post
I just wanna feel warm…
Early mornings and the cold scare me. The thought of waking up when it’s still dark and having to venturing outside, fills me with dread. I’ve made sure it doesn’t happen often but when it does it’s usually to catch a flight. Nearly always booked by a friend trying to save money and maximise the time away. If it’s up to me I always fly during the day. Anything to avoid waking up when it’s dark and cold. View Post
Christmas is one of the few times throughout the year when most of us have some time for ourselves. In addition to cooking, eating, spending time with the family. More eating, sleeping (can’t wait for that) and watching movies. I really want to find some inspiration. The new year is about to come knocking and I want to put my best foot forward. If you also want to start the new year motivated and on the right track. Then I have some ideas to get the most from your Christmas break.
“It’s up to us to make personal changes to protect our planet and not rely solely on the governments.”
I have an uneasy feeling whenever I throw food packaging in the bin. Yes, it’s a recycling bin but the amount of plastic I throw away just doesn’t feel right. The world seems chaotic. With the natural disasters, political mayhem and general intolerance to each other. I feel like we’re facing difficult times and the universe is giving us a taste of our own medicine. For years I’ve heard environmentalists warning the governments about the effects of climate change. I don’t know about you but I’m not waiting for anyone. There’s power in numbers and we are the one’s to make the changes by the decisions we make.
Being you sounds so much better, but it’s hard…
Writing an e mail or jotting down the weekly shopping list. No problem! But writing something meaningful can be an absolute nightmare. It’s easy to go all formal when writing about something which can end up sounding really boring. In my earlier blog posts I used the word thus here and there. I mean, thus?! I would never use that word in an actual conversation. There’s a balance to writing content that’s easy to read without sounding like siri. I’ve been practicing and I found a couple of tips that really helped me out.
