Twenty weeks until my birthday. Or New Years Day if you’d rather celebrate that.
Here’s how I’m doing with my resolutions:
- More blogging (I’m taking part in EdublogsClub) success
- Applying for jobs in museums done, but no interviews
- Completing (if all goes well) my PGCert in Inclusive Arts Practice!!! deferred to next year
- More weekend trips to the westcountry done, in a way…
- Saving up to take my partner on a really special holiday in November no chance
- Potentially standing for election again I stood, then withdrew
I am tempted to stand for part-time rep in the autumn elections (after all, I’ve only been going on about it for years). We’ll see what happens…
In the meantime, more resolutions for me:
- Get a job
- Save money
- Find a place to live long-term (mezzanine floor preferred)
- Have a holiday
- See family more often
- Find a GP who I feel comfortable talking to
- Write more
- Grow pear trees

I’m hoping for four different job interview invites over the next week, but I’m expecting them tomorrow. Eek!
I’ve been reading Is It My Body? on and off for a while. It was a birthday present to me from K (thanks, always). The book is difficult for me to read, I look at a paragraph and then my mind goes off. Thinking about projects, and people. It feels more personal that a lot of things I read. There is interpretation, but it seems less analytical and more experiential. I like this type of writing. It’s like talking to a friend.
Today I am 13,000 days old. Not much happened.
Every now and again I see something and think I wish I invented that. Last week it was Popband.
You’ve probably seen them. I noticed them in a chemist and thought they looked like festival wrist bands (which I have fond memories of because I put about one hundred of them on students last year at the pre-Freshtival Welcome Hub).
I was trying to describe the idea of Myers Briggs to a friend. Unfortunately I couldn’t remember the name, but after a bit of searching I found 16personalities.com I explained that I’ve done the test numerous times over my life and I always end up as INFJ or INFP (depending on anxiety/depression).
I prefer being INFJ as that feels like my natural state. Plus, I think it’s a bit rarer so it makes me feel special. So I am aware I might be persuading myself to answer certain ways. Yesterday I did the test and ended up as INFP.
