I forget. We’re in another one here in Scotland, anyway, and thus we struggle on. As I write this post, however, I’m “enjoying” a week off from work, and so I am catching up on a fair bit of reading! Let’s recap.
It’s been a lean month in terms of productivity – real life got in my way again. But as I type this on the first (bright, windy) day of a two-week holiday, I am determined to improve matters. Let’s see what October got done…
The weather is turning chilly. Soon, Starbucks will be changing their seasonal menu… But before I settle into autumn, let’s look at what summer’s last gasp brought with it.
This month I finally got to take some time off, and it led to a deeply satisfying – and very rewarding! – uptick in my reading progress. Let’s look at what I read – and more!
It’s been a difficult month in a string of continuing difficult months, but there have been a few bright spots in it for me, and I have … tentative plans? Let’s look at what June did.

Let’s review February.
The new year is here, and I wish everything felt shiny and new. On a personal level, I do have a refreshed outlook, and a newly-tapped sense of determination not to let the bastards grind me down. Pardon the language if you will, but I suspect it’s understandable. Anyway! This is about good things that got done, isn’t it? So let’s talk about the joy I found in January.
