As promised, 2018 is building to be an active year. At the moment I’m enjoying contributing to the community at General Assembly as a Front Line Associate where I gain a unique insight into the future of education.

WeWork were a fantastic host for March’s London Freelancers MeetUp. We had a great time working and chatting. An informal drinks event is in the works.

Starting as an assistant lecturer at Oxford Brookes University has been a challenge, and it’s great to have the opportunity to guide students through the principles of publishing and the process of building a website and ebook. Currently we’re marking the group’s first assignments, and ramping up towards the end of the year.

I’m currently tracking every moment of the day, slicing up the hours into activities like sleeping, travelling, exercising, reading, chilling etc. and outputting a daily score. In March I finally got it working well on the Apple Watch, so I don’t have to grab my phone to change activity. This habit has really helped me allocate my time better, and the online activity web app means I can check on my progress from anywhere.

In the meantime, I continue to read and write, while taking a moment each day to appreciate this wonderful city.
