Saturday diary entry

Another restless night with my brain going ‘twenty to the dozen’. I was awake at 6.30 because I’d forgotten to turn off my parkrun alarm. As much as I tried I just couldn’t get back to sleep. So I got up and was at my desk by 7am. Managed to smash out four solid hours of work. I shouted myself a nanna-nap and slept until 3 which was awesome. But when I went back to my desk I could barely see my screen. My eyes were just so sore.

I realised I hadn’t been outside all day, so I made myself put on a pair of thongs and walk to the end of the street. I needed to move and sun on my skin. I had a shower as soon as I got home, in time for a meeting at 5pm.

I feel like I’m on a heightened sense of urgency right now. When I’m in this head space I am REALLY prone to not looking after myself. I forget to eat or exercise, cause there’s ‘so much to do’.

Here I am again, working all weekend. *insert eyeroll emoji*

I really am too old to be doing this to myself anymore.

It really was a lovely day outside today.

Grateful to public programs

A few years ago I heard a teacher complain there weren’t enough Indigenous resources out there. I wrote a post on my education blog about how there are incredible amounts of resources out there and available for free, you just have to know where to look and take the time out to invest in building your knowledge.

Hitting the 10k mark!

Training went well. I was awake on time (6am). To make the 10k goal, I planned my route that would see me finishing at home, so I left the car at home and walked to parkrun.

nostalgia & melancholy

i listen to the radio a lot. when I’m in the car. at home. i tend to listen to stations like 4BH 882, 4KQ. sometimes when i hear songs, I’m transported back to other times and other places. i can’t describe the feeling i get – it’s weird – it’s in my head and in my gut. it’s a nostalgia i think. it’s often such an early memory i can’t even remember an event or people associated with it. but i know it’s from the past, a time that no longer exists. i occasionally get it when i look hard at old photos as well.

When consulting isn’t really consulting

Gather 18 people into a room, give them breakfast and one hour to ‘share’ their opinions, experiences, and ideas. Tell them you have your listening ears on.

Invasion Day 2020

Why do we march? What is the point of it? Does it really make a difference?

Grateful to our team

Mid-last year our team grew. Amanda who I’d known for a few years but hadn’t really worked closely with joined the Iscariot Media team.

Grateful for the journey

When you look back your life and you think ‘how on earth did I get here?’

A few people I’ve been reading this paste month have referred to different ‘chapters’ in one’s life. It’s sometimes easier, especially when you’re asking yourself, how did I get here, to imagine that there are different chapters. I like that analogy.
