MY INTENTIONS FOR 2021

If there’s any month to focus on yourself, it’s January. It’s that fresh-start-new-year-new-you vibe that makes you want to assess yourself, where you are now and where you want to be. I’m not big on making New Years’ resolutions because if there is something I want to change, I don’t want to wait until aContinue reading “MY INTENTIONS FOR 2021”

HOW I USED HOBBIES TO INCREASE MY JOB SATISFACTION

When I started The Boring Job Project, I made a list of all the hobbies I wanted to try. Then, I went a step further and searched the internet for lists of hobbies and added some more that I might be interested in. I ended up with quite a long list, but I was luckyContinue reading “HOW I USED HOBBIES TO INCREASE MY JOB SATISFACTION”

What I’m Grateful For In 2020

It’s been a year like no other. Literally. 2020 brought some unprecedented stuff that we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemies. There were fires and floods and then COVID-19, changing the way we do everyday things and creating a ‘new normal’ which will never actually be normal. Even though this year has been a massiveContinue reading “What I’m Grateful For In 2020”

My 2020 Book Buying Ban

Books are so magical. They transport you to different places and take you on journeys that you may never take in real life. I can’t express to you how much I love books, but you should know, because I’m an author, right? So, it may come as a surprise that I put myself on aContinue reading “My 2020 Book Buying Ban”

Why I’m participating in NaNoWriMo

We haven’t finished NaNoWriMo yet, and I don’t want to be cocky, but I’m planning to hit the 50,000 word count. Of course I am; everyone who signs up to write a novel in November is planning to finish, aren’t they? But we’re halfway through the month and I am struggling – big time! CommittingContinue reading “Why I’m participating in NaNoWriMo”

Recent Reads // October

Audiobooks I finished off Where’s My Happy Ending? by Anna Whitehouse and Matt Farquharson. This book was really, really good. I love non-fiction for when I’m out on my walks because it makes me feel like I’m learning. After finishing off this audiobook, I decided that I needed something a bit more dreamy to moveContinue reading “Recent Reads // October”

How I’m Prepping For NaNoWriMo

I’m a NaNo virgin and to say that I’m a bit nervous about the whole thing is a complete understatement. For years, I’ve watched October and November come and go, telling myself that I should totally partake in NaNoWriMo (or National Novel Writing Month) and then watching the start of November pass me by, resigningContinue reading “How I’m Prepping For NaNoWriMo”

Rise and Shine // My Morning Routine

I’m secretly (or now not-so-secretly) fascinated by other people’s lives. I love finding out what people who aren’t me or my family do every day – especially in the morning. There is a lot of hype around having a great morning routine to make you successful. In fact, if you Google morning routines, you’ll findContinue reading “Rise and Shine // My Morning Routine”

Sneak Peek!

My emotions at the moment are a heavily-blended mixture of excitement, nerves, tranquility and overwhelming fear. That seems impossible, but trust me, the sleepless nights that have nothing to do with my baby (nearly toddler!) are proof that it can happen. The reason for this emulsion of feelings is that I’ll be self-publishing my bookContinue reading “Sneak Peek!”

Recent Reads: September

I’m sharing what I’ve been reading and listening to in the month of September. eBooks I finished two eBooks this month. I was previously not much of a fan of eBooks, preferring the traditional turn-a-page paperbacks, but since having a baby, eBooks have become my preference. Trying to juggle a physical book and a babyContinue reading “Recent Reads: September”
