A Writing Update #2

It's been a while.

I spent a month in Hong Kong (it was significantly less fun than it sounds). Ironically, as HK has one of the fastest internet speeds in the world, I barely had access to WiFi during that time.

After being reunited with Martin the laptop, I finally finished the short story for the Benjamin Franklin Literary Prize, as mentioned in the previous update.

Also have been doodling down some poems, which is a relief as I thought my burst of surprisingly good poetry several months ago was a one-off. Am hoping to write a little collection of poetry and get some feedback on it.

I AM OBSESSED WITH JAZZ-HOP. It's so good - here's my favourite playlist:

I went on to find this album: 'Coffee House Swinger: Brewing Sessions' by Boho Fau & Elevated Soul. It's sublime, I was playing it pretty much all month during my exile holiday abroad. You hit play and pretend you're in a jazz cafe - it's smooth, chilled and beautiful. You can set whatever price you want to buy the album (can put $0, but please do give what you can).

Real Life and Other Nonsense
  • Watched 'How To Train Your Dragon 2' and discovered how it feels to love a film so much it breaks your heart a little when it ends (been playing the soundtrack on repeat).
  • Take 2 of driving test is coming up on Friday. Irritatingly, the more lessons I've been having, the worse I've been getting. Which is worrying, to say the least.
  • Going back to uni very soon. Being stuck at home makes me restless, and after watching HTTYD, I'm ready to go adventuring out into the world. Despite it being my second year now, I'm still a little worried about meeting people. However;
"There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met."
