Here’s what I’m up to and what I’m currently focused on. 

I’ve just moved interstate and that had put life on hold for a bit, but I think I’ve finally settled in and am able to continue with my work!

I’m actually doing three challenges simultaneously for the first time. I usually avoid doing this, but they just so happen to complement each other very well. Here are the other two:

  • I’m working on a Portrait Drawing Challenge which I use to help me relax and unwind. I’m currently learning using a great course by Steve Huston on New Masters Academy which I think is simply the best value for money.
  • I’m still in the midst of my 12 week French Challenge, and I’ve been focusing on listening and speaking.

I’m recovering from a lower back injury, which means my training routine has been put on hold temporarily.

I’m working through my year long reading challenge, and I’ll post the updates on that soon, but so far I have learned so much that it’s entirely shifted my perspective on certain aspects of my own life.

I’m also working on making improvements to this blog. If you notice any changes, it’s probably because I’m experimenting with different styles, etc. Feel free to leave me some feedback or suggestions.

I am continuing with the tracking happiness experiment, an idea that I first heard about from a friend of mine from the Netherlands. I highly encourage checking out his blog, Tracking Happiness if you want to learn more about this fascinating idea. He’s also written a guest post recently, it’s called Hitting Rock Bottom: How Tracking Happiness Can Help.

I’ve been vegan for almost eight weeks now (yeah I know, I know. I’m one of those people), after watching Forks Over Knives and What the Health. I’ve already noticed signigicant improvements in my health, and I’ll do a deeper analysis on this once I have more data!

I’ve been keeping up with my meditation on Headspace, which I highly recommend. It’s changing my life, little by little. Really helps me reset in the middle of a busy day.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, playing the guitar, watching movies and listening to music.
