I took the first five days of this month off, because New Year, which was fun. And then on Monday 6th, I got back to it with a vengeance. Read more
I don’t have a lot of time to spend on a large update like normal, so instead here’s a brief overview of November. Read more
This month I am very much aware that I am doing a lot of things. I am running a company and doing a Master’s and writing two books, which when I write it down in black and white does look like a lot.
Not only that, but the company is currently growing (goo… good?) and I’ve been elected student rep for the MA (when I say “been elected” I mean “enthusiastically volunteered for” because I am a big fat nerd) and I am already three chapters behind with one of the books, which I originally planned to finish in 2016. However, the other book is (so far) on schedule, so that’s something, right? RIGHT? Read more
I don’t even know where September went. I feel like time jumped from August to October without anything in between, probably because I was flat-out working in a haze of caffeine and time stretches strangely when you do stuff like that. Read more
August has been a month of stress from beginning to end. Some stress good – the race to finish the novel – some stress bad (work isn’t going so well right now). It’s the kind of month where I’ve needed a lot of time to sit back and think about things, but that hasn’t been possible, so instead I’ve made some fairly large decisions despite not really having the headspace to do so, and I hope they turn out to be the right ones.

Yeah, this one’s been a good one. Some good news; some good progress. Some imperfections, as always. Here’s a round-up.
Highlights of the Month
- Getting onto the MA Psychotherapy & Counselling at Regent’s University, starting this September. I am extremely happy about this. Being a therapist was my dream job from the moment I learned it was a thing, but when I hit adulthood life went a different way for a while. That was no bad thing, actually, since it gave me a whole lot more experience, but now it feels good to be pursuing a dream again.
June turned out to be a pretty good month, on the whole. Lots of stuff got done, and even though I didn’t read as much as I usually do, I made some progress in other arenas, so I’m not beating myself up about it. Read more
I can’t believe the year is flying by so quickly. It helps to have a lot of things on, I suppose: it means everything goes faster because there’s less time (no time!) to sit around going “What am I doing with my life?”
Nonetheless my brain is having an irritating day today where it’s doing that. I am not a fan of these days, the times when my brain just gives me a constant stream of “You have done NOTHING with your life what is the POINT you are AWFUL I HATE YOU” and I’m like “Stop talking bollocks” but it just carries on grumbling in the background.
It was quite helpful, therefore, that the day I’m writing this is the second-to-last day of the month, because it means it’s time for my monthly round-up, which demonstrates what I’ve been doing for the last thirty days and how it’s not nothing. Read more
In my mind, April was going to be the quiet month after the mad rush of the three-month intensive university course. But I forgot about the travelling and the essays and the research project. Read more
Jesus fucking christ, what a month.
It’s been intense, and wonderful, and challenging, and frightening, and amazing, and life-changing, and I could go on with the superlatives but instead I’ll start talking about why. Read more
