Me, Myself & The OC: Catch-Up List

I lost all my photographs and stock photos are prettier anyway…

 

 

 

  1. I celebrated 5 years with Gavin last weekend. We drank with friends, we went to a gig, we stayed in the Edinburgh Malmaison, we ate delicious food in Leith and we went to the zoo. It was a perfect way to celebrate 5 years with my favourite person
  2. I reset my phone to factory settings and lost all my photos. I thought I’d backed them up but apparently not. It’s strange losing photographs. I didn’t look at them all the time but I still felt very attached to them and very sad when I realised I couldn’t retrieve them- contrary to my usual babbling, sometimes technology isn’t great
  3. I have a new blog and I interviewed a lovely new business owner- here
  4. Between the #YesAllWomen tag and debates over Kirstie Allsopp’s comments, I am loving how much feminist discussion is happening lately
  5. The new X-Men film was pretty incredible as was Godzilla
  6. The Independent wrote a ‘Happy List’ as an alternative to the rich list. A list of people who have helped and enriched other’s lives. Beautiful.
  7. I’m all of a sudden very anxious again and never manage a full night’s sleep which isn’t ideal but it has led me to Headspace which is a pretty great discovery
  8. Just after I wrote about loving the internet, my words came back to haunt me and I realised how harmful the internet can be. I’m fine now but it’s nice to have my mind changed on something. I used to be so stubborn and now I like finding out I was wrong, or could be wrong. I like surprising myself as well which leads me onto…
  9. Turns out I like teamwork! I thrive from it! I always thought I work best alone but in fact it is quite the opposite- it’s bloody lovely to know I was wrong all along.
  10. I used to have pub lunches around three times a year and now I have them around 1-2 times a week. I used to have one busy day out of ten and now I am always busy. I’m not complaining but wow I’ve experienced a lot of change in a short amount of time
  11. Because of being so busy, I have found that I have very little patience for petty issues and problems. I have to prioritise basically everything in my life and it’s nice to sometimes take a step back and say ‘no, I think I’ll look after myself this time’ 
  12. I really love my job and I feel extremely lucky that I get to say that
  13. I’m addicted to The OC again. I’m not even ashamed.
  14. I’m still trying to find a way to keep up with this blog between working, socialising, ‘down time’ and yknow, sleeping. I miss writing about music.
