I recently watched this video of popular YouTube polymath Tom Scott. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYj3DnI81AQ&list=WL&index=16 A fascinating video regardless - of course we're never going to be able to predict the future word-for-word or tech-for-tech, and I cannot really add my opinion about all those accurate guesses about phones. As Tom mentions, some parts of the future are … Continue reading The Death of the Blog?
Category: General Observations on Life
the ‘Uncategorised’ for my life
I don't mind not blogging much, but when I have a half-written post that I ought to have finished a month ago, it is rather annoying. So here's my amendment of a delayed post and a look back on these past couple of months. (If you follow me on Instagram, you would've seen I shared … Continue reading Winter Reflections
Three Very Different Christmases
With the UK government imposing further restrictions and tiers on the UK (which I do think are necessary), Christmas this year looks different for a lot of people. Amusingly enough, I don't fall into that category - our Christmas was already constrained by childcare bubbles and so the Christmas day travel we were planning to … Continue reading Three Very Different Christmases
One Day at a Time.
I used to think blogging was about writing extensive posts filled with long details or essays of pensive arguments – I was a dedicated uni student for four years, after all – and this was one of the things that always made me take my time with each post or leave me with many posts … Continue reading One Day at a Time.
My Experience At Being Self-Employed
In the past, when I thought of being self-employed as a career, I had something different in my head to the reality. Not for the purpose of naivety. I just didn't have an idea, just like every child has a different idea. But it wasn't something tangible – I didn't have a set idea of … Continue reading My Experience At Being Self-Employed
A Case Of Mutual Resignation
It's Boxing Day 2018 and I have just come home from my third interview of the week. As I wrap up warm on the sofa, my phone rings. It's the internal hiring manager from the third of the interviews. "It's good news," she says, "they want to give you the job." Relief surges through me; … Continue reading A Case Of Mutual Resignation
Three Different Hotels, Three Different Adventures
I wanted to go over the trip we recently had where we experienced three different hotel stays, both in the UK and in the sunny glorious South of France. (This was a while ago now, but I've been busy as we well know.) I really ought to turn this into a travel blog, the amount … Continue reading Three Different Hotels, Three Different Adventures
Where Has The Year Gone?
Wow, where have the days good? In true blink-and-miss-it style the year has passed and we sit at the last week of December already. I know I've been super absent from the blog, and actually without good reason except that working is my focus and I've not had much to offer advice or chat about. … Continue reading Where Has The Year Gone?
Remembering the Lost
Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day and I want to respect that here, knowing so many people who've suffered the hardship and pain and indescribable nature of losing a child, however far into gestation, not least my precious Godson's siblings. From my Instagram: I don't pretend to have any knowledge beyond the facts … Continue reading Remembering the Lost
