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 May’s London Freelancers MeetUp, and it was great talking with freelancers in a more informal setting at our first evening social.

The semester has drawn to a close at Oxford Brookes University where I worked as an assistant lecturer on the publishing degree for the past 12 weeks. The experience has been incredible, and will contribute towards a teaching qualification I am applying for in June.

ClassPass has introduced me to a whole new world of fitness workouts that break away from gym monotony. Interested in trying boxing, pilates, spinning and whatever else I come across.

I’m still 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.

June promises to be an exciting month, and I’m already preparing for The Moth’s GrandSLAM where I will be contributing a story at The Bridge theatre.

In the meantime, I continue to readwrite and tell stories, while taking a moment each day to appreciate this wonderful city.
