Week 52/2021: the last week of the year

Week 52/2021: Week of 27 December 2021 The last week of the year I had a break from work this week, which was beyond nice. It meant I didn’t have to go out. If you’ve been following along these past few weeks you’ll know that I’ve not been in...

Week 51/2021: living in fear

Week 51/2021: Week of 20 December 2021 Living in fear: Rambling at 2 am because I can’t sleep I see the term “living in fear” a lot at the moment. Attributed to various people in the media and in comments on social media posts, it’s used in association with...

Week 50/2021: writing it all down

Week 50/2021: Week of 13 December 2021 Writing it all down This week was very much a continuation of last week. I hated this week as much, if not more than last week. This week the Tasmanian government reopened the borders to interstate travellers, which brought a lot of...

Point to Pinnacle: D-day

322 days ago, on 31 December 2017,  I posted a photo of kunanyi from near the bottom of the university with the caption, “One day, Mountain, I will walk to your summit”. Today, I did it. I didn’t specifically have the Point to Pinnacle in mind when I posted...

Challenge 4: Activities 21-27

I think I missed a few days after Day 18 (Thursday) when I did three activities (18-20) and learned about the Edamame Threat. Day 19: I was home with a sick boy, so the thing I had booked to do that day didn’t happen. I had to reschedule. Day...
