31 Day Blog Challenge

In an attempt to get writing again – because I really do enjoy it once I get started – I’ll be doing the most ambitious of challenges: a daily blog challenge.

I mean, there are dumber challenges on the internet, right? So this isn’t so bad…

I found this challenge online, the result of a groundbreaking Google search. I couldn’t find out anything about the creator though, as the accounts mentioned on the image don’t exist anymore.

Instead of trying to remember to start on the first of next month, I’m going to start right away (as in, tomorrow or the next day…). And I won’t promise to write every day, but I’ll most certainly try to write on most days until I’ve completed the challenge. Some of the posts will be shorter, some hopefully longer. Looking at the list below, some might be a little lamer than others. But I shall persevere!

See you soon!


I want to write, but…

…I hate screens.

I really do.

I’ve been trying to figure out why I can’t get myself to sort out photos from LAST YEAR to put onto Facebook, or blog more regularly, or even type decent responses to messages from friends. I have no better reason than: I hate looking at screens.

The only time I’m willing to watch a screen continuously for more than 3 minutes is when I watch superhero movies at the cinema. At this stage I’m even struggling to look at my kindle long enough to read a chapter. I would rather stare at the ceiling, honestly.

All my teaching work is on computer – I teach using Powerpoint mostly. So free periods are spent planning and preparing and creating presentations (I do them all from scratch). When I get home in the evenings, the last thing I feel like doing is to be connected to a screen.

So bear with me as I try to remedy this.

For now, though…


I’m outta here.
