How I’ve spent my time between January and now (and what I’ve read)

23 March 2014
  • OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAbegan my rad new job (i.e. threw myself full-throttle into a hectic new full-time schedule after being unemployed for eight months)
  • spent two weeks in Melbourne learning and playing with great people
  • learned how to front sault from a trampoline into a massive cushy air pillow (called a “Big Bag”)
  • enjoyed a handful of magnificent Fringe Festival shows, including the Magnets a capella band and Famous Sharron‘s comedy show
  • hosted my aunt and uncle who visited from Minnesota as part of a cruise
  • watched some movies under the starsspent a glorious 18 hours camping in the bush with a dear friend
  • spent 12 of those hours entertaining ourselves by talking about anything and everything under the sun and moon
  • played hard at a rock climbing gym with workmates
  • won our softball team’s grand finalOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  • visited Sculptures by Sea at Cottesloe Beach
  • read these books: Odd One Out by Monica McInerney, The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Euginides, Change Your Thinking by Sarah Edelman, and Light Shining in the Forrest by Paul Torday. I also finished the poems in See How We Almost Fly by Alison Luterman and received Brandon Stanton’s book Humans of New York so have been looking at a few pages a night of that. If you haven’t heard of Humans of New York, check it out. I love what this guy is doing.

    It sounds like a great list and that life is treating you well. I didn’t know you played softball, how different are the cheers in Oz?

    I’m glad your new job is great too! : )

      P.S. those photos are gorgeous! You should feature them larger in your posts!

        Thank you! And actually, we don’t really have organised cheers the same as we do in the States. We do cheer each other on but without the song or chant style cheers.

        Than you should teach your team and give the other teams something to think about! : )
