Banana bombshell, blah blah blah.
Ah, it just feels good to say something, anything, after such a lengthy hiatus. Where to start? Perhaps after a lovely breakfast on a warm winter’s morning, on the weekend, when I’m resting in between two jobs…
I’ve been having fun teaching English as a second language to students from all over the world, and I’ve just put in an application for a home loan. So, fingers crossed, next week I’ll be purchasing a nice little apartment in Brisbane.
Life in the Queensland capital is going well. I’m more cashed up than usual, probably because I haven’t been putting time into blogging. I enjoy blogging, but focusing all my energy on it wasn’t good for me financially. I’ve also discovered I’m generally happier away from social media. I don’t mind Instagram – which I post on occasionally – but the rest I feel are a huge time (and spirit) suck.
It also feels good now I’m not trying to compete with other bloggers or make money. I want to connect with the things I really love to do, like reading and literature, so I’ve decided to put Goodreads up in my sidebar. Of course you’re welcome to follow along!
What else? I plan to do some other (non-bloggy) writing, which I might talk about a little on this blog and I’ll be blogging about my explorations both locally and down in Tasmania too, time permitting. I also have a dear friend who you can check out here, that regularly visits Tasmania. I’ll be sure to join him again on my favourite island soon(ish).
Right now, it’s a lovely afternoon here in Ashgrove, Brisbane. There’s a cool whippy wind tickling the ferns and dirtying my balcony with crispy leaves. I’m looking at a brush turkey, a creature that’s in my life at least once every hour these days. They’re intriguing to watch, as they mess up backyards while the yellow skin around their neck droops like a soggy scarf in the rain.
