New year, setting goals and being better

I know that this time of year usually contains two kinds of posts – the first listing all the ways we should work on being better in the year to come, and often featuring close attention to our bodies and their function; the second is a meta-article about setting new year’s resolutions and why theyContinue reading “New year, setting goals and being better”

Life is a highway

Can you flipping believe that I’ve written a whole fifty of this format of blog? I can’t, not even a little bit. I was having a think about my blog stats earlier today, because today also is the marker of two months of consistently blogging once a day.

One of my favourite movies of all time is the highly underrated Tangled. It tells the story of a handsome thief, and a beautiful girl with magical hair.

And partnering. Jive is a lot ofContinue reading “Dance with me tonight”

Success! I guess…?

I’ve been thinking about the meaning of success a lot, having just had another birthday – certainly a different one to what I was expecting as my first birthday in the UK.

Writing for my audience

Hey Mom, thanks for reading my blog. The blog prompt from the long-overdue 14 days of creating your wordpress blog was to write a piece for your audience. Now, I know the point was supposed to be ‘write something that your audience wants to read’, but I’m kind of grabbing the prompt and going aContinue reading “Writing for my audience”
