Round Up: March, April, May

Wow, it’s really been a hot minute since I’ve done one of these. I haven’t really got an excuse except that I forgot. Seeing as the last couple of months haven’t been too exciting, this will be a quick one.

What I’ve Done

The last couple of months have actually been pretty quiet and work focused. I had to say “see ya later” to a good friend who moved away which put a bit of a damper on things. The most exciting thing I’ve done recently was attend the Wide Open Spaces Festival at the start of May. I stayed out for two of the three nights and had a real ball. I was introduced to two new favourite bands: Haiku Hands and the Ironing Maidens.

Attending WOS. This was pretty significant seeing as it was cancelled both last year and the year before, so it was good to see it back.

I started a new role within my job which is much better suited to my skills and interests.

I attended the Parritjima light festival twice and was once again mesmerised by the light installations. However, the annual light show against the MacDonnell Ranges was a bit lack luster.

I checked a major bucket list item off my list by taking a helicopter ride over the Red Centre. You can read more about it here.

I started responding to Journal Prompts of the Day’ on Instagram. Some of the prompts are rather difficult and confronting, but it’s been eye opening.


Saying farewell to a good friend who has moved away across Australia was a pretty sad event. I had hoped to be able to visit her in the mid year break but don’t think it’s going to happen.

My scenic flight over the Red Centre really was breath taking and I struggled to find the words toadequately describe it.

My Favourite Things

I am back on the Animal Crossing train! I became particularly inspired once I connected my DS to the internet and started visiting other islands.

I’ve recently started listening to ‘The Daily’ podcast. This podcas explores major news events through interviews and investigative journalism.

I have also started listening to ‘You’re Dead to Me.’ The podcast hosts a discussion between an historian and a comedian as they explore people, ideas and events from history.

I discovered a new love for Young Adult stories when I binged The Irregulars and Shadow and Bone. I enjoyed them enought that I went ahead and bought the book for Shadow and Bone.

Health and Fitness

I have had a couple of months now where I have been painfree. I have been experimenting at the gym with some different classes and exercises and am starting to feel more confident in my body again. I am looking into trying Crossfit and boxing for the first time.

Goals for Next Month

  1. Get back into regular blogging by writing a Round Up Post for the month of June.
  2. To try out a couple of new exercise regimes to add some variety into my routine.
  3. To go camping or hiking at least once.
