Doing Something New every day – what I’ve learned.

In the first three months of this year I battled resolutions and regimes. I challenged myself to ten resolutions every day for thirty days. I then cornered myself into seven resolutions for six days. I tried to do cook something new every day and then do something new every day for 60 days (see listContinue reading “Doing Something New every day – what I’ve learned.”

Doing something new every day – Day 56 – Swearing in new languages. It’s fun.

I am attempting to do something new every day in a challenge to motivate myself through lockdown 3.0. I have attempted to pick up and play with new languages over the course of the last few weeks. Today, I decided to jazz things up a bit. Instead of learning the usual niceties like ‘hello’ andContinue reading “Doing something new every day – Day 56 – Swearing in new languages. It’s fun.”

Sometimes doing nothing is the best thing of all…

I am attempting to do something new every day in a challenge to motivate myself through lockdown 3.0. Today I read some German poetry. I read “Der du von dem Himmel bist” by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. I vaguely remember literary types talking about Goethe at some point in my past. My hopes were up.Continue reading “Sometimes doing nothing is the best thing of all…”

Doing something new everyday is working! Distracted from bloody lockdown for a teeny bit.

I am attempting to do something new every day in a challenge to motivate myself through lockdown 3.0.

Learning something new every day is quite uplifting.

My challenge is to do something new every day to motivate myself through lockdown 3.0 I learned to say hello in Korean today. Google says it should sound like this – “anyeonghaseyo baeuda”.

Ten resolutions every day for thirty days – Day 29

[See end of blog for complete list of my ten commandments.] I’m gutted with myself. Over the last two days, the food I’ve produced has been a bit poxy. Ffs, have you ever heard of cooked yet soggy chicken drumsticks? Also, yesterday, for the first time since Jan 28th, I couldn’t take my walk. IContinue reading “Ten resolutions every day for thirty days – Day 29”

Ten resolutions every day for thirty days – Day 27

[See end of blog for complete list of my ten commandments.] This morning, the sky descended. The grey blanket had rolled in from the sea. I reckon the reason this country produces so many artists and poets is because we spend half of every year trying to imagine a sky. Anywho, it could have madeContinue reading “Ten resolutions every day for thirty days – Day 27”
