NaJoWriMo 05/04/2016: Space matters

Context matters. One’s surrounding can influence their mood, perception, and even the memories they form. I know that my physical environment affects my productivity quite strongly. When I was writing assignments and my dissertation, I often went to the library. I would try to sit at the same computer, or at least at the same… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 05/04/2016: Space matters

NaJoWriMo 04/04/2016: Changes on the horizon

I always thought that the biggest step I have taken in my life so far was moving abroad a few weeks after my 19th birthday and starting life in a country with no family and just one friend around me. I never regretted that move, not for one single moment. I do feel that my… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 04/04/2016: Changes on the horizon

NaJoWriMo 01/04/2016: Out with the old, in with the new

This month’s NaJoWriMo is about Personal Renewal. It is quite topical, I have to say. The fourth month of this wretched year has begun and I feel utterly miserable. My life has taken a ride downhill and seems to have gut stuck in some stupid hole. I would like to say it was out of… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 01/04/2016: Out with the old, in with the new

Today I was prompted to think about my expectations for this year, including any changes, activities, experiences or people I look forward to encountering. There are actually quite a few. I look forward to receiving an email from my prospective employer to say whether and when I can start my new job. I wonder what… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 10/01/2016: Expectations

NaJoWriMo 09/01/2016: If only I did…

Today’s prompt is to reflect back at the future and think about what I wish I spent more time doing 5-10 years ago. I quite like this prompt, as it makes it easier to identify personal goals, recreational or developmental aims. I guess I wish I spent more time taking care of myself. As long… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 09/01/2016: If only I did…

NaJoWriMo 07/01/2016: Small accomplishments

Today I am prompted to consider some of my actions and achievements and how / why I did them. This may help recognise progress as it unfolds, and acknowledges the many little steps that lead there. I guess I haven’t actually done much during the first week of this new year so far, apart from… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 07/01/2016: Small accomplishments
