Well! That went quickly! We’re already 1/12th done with 2017! So far, my writing/publishing year has gotten off to a reasonable start. I won’t get the official figures until mid-month, but at the moment, I’m pretty sure I’ve sold ~42 copies of my books, and made about $70. That’s pretty good for me lately! I’ll… Continue reading January Reflection
Well, hello there! It’s been a little while… 2016 is almost over, so it feels timely to check-in. Since I last posted (at the beginning of August, oops), I’ve been pretty busy. I taught full-time at a rural school for two months. That was a good experience, but also exhausting. I was very relieved once… Continue reading End of Year Catch-up!
Ah, The Future. Such a glorious concept, full to brimming of possibilities. As we get older, those possibilities seem to shrink (for some), but for others they grow. As you get older, the idea of changing career, especially if it’s to a career that requires 5-10 years training (like a doctor or an architect) can… Continue reading The Future.
Well, we’re almost at the end of 2015. I’m still not entirely sure how that crept up on me so fast! 2015 has been a solid year for me. Not bad at all, but not super fantastic either. Just very busy… Or maybe that was only the second half of the year.. Some achievements for the… Continue reading End of the year!
I’ve really been thinking hard about how I want my life to be. I feel like I’m at a bit of a cross-roads here. I could get a full-time teaching job for next year, and be responsible and secure financially. The Lovely Boyfriend could go back to uni, and we’d be safe and fine financially. It… Continue reading Future Musings
How is it possibly over a week into August already? Years lasted an eternity when I was in Primary School. Now they zoom by and are over before I’ve even gotten used to writing the new year at the top of my diary. The Lovely Boyfriend and I moved back (for me) to (a first… Continue reading Making the most of your surroundings
So, I’m a full-time uni student (well, more than full-time really seeing as my course is overloaded! Most uni students do 4 subjects a semester – in my course we’re doing 6 each semester, essentially cramming 3 semesters worth of work into 2) this year. Between my placement (working full-time in schools for 30 days)… Continue reading When your income dries up
I grew up in the countryside, in a small town of about 250 people. As a kid I loved it, and as an adult I love being able to go back. I think I’d feel trapped in the city if I didn’t know I could jump in the car/jump on the train and escape back… Continue reading City or Country?
Meet Gurtrude. She likes to sit on laptops. She also likes cuddles, eating food, exploring, watching her humans eat food, begging for food, getting in cupboards, fastidiously arranging her litter until it is just right and sleeping behind the couch. I’ve been a bit distracted the past few days: we picked up Gertrude on… Continue reading Welcome home!
