Nagasaki Update: What a week

This week was very happening. It's just how life is I guess - I was feeling rather down and unaccomplished as I do every month without fail, and then the universe is like, no way mate, we're going to throw random issues at you and light a fire under your bum. It's a new week…

I’m pretty sure this is temporary

Me and me this weekend ...fun times I've been so tired. I was ill for the last three days and I thought I had finally contracted Covid-19 because I probably have not been taking at least two minutes to wash my hands. I thought I felt better on Saturday and went for a stroll but…

Corona Diary: Life in the time of Corona

Quarantine Movie Recommendation

I know.. I know..we as a collective are going bonkers with the loss of human contact and we all wish for normalcy as soon as possible. Even an introverted mole rat like me can't wait to teach back in the classroom and see my students' faces. I've been reading and drawing loads but I'm also…
