Over the last few weeks I have played the first four games in the Uncharted Series, been to Auckland on a school trip, finished reading two books, seen several movies, done normal chores, and planned some of my trip to San Diego Comic Con. Not to mention looked after my nieces and done the whole work thing – who knew teaching was so difficult.
Anyway, I thought I would update with a currently. It’s just a quick way of sharing what I’ve been reading, watching, playing etc.
It may surprise some people to realise that I am an expert procrastinator. What I mean is that I avoid doing many of the things that I want to do due to any number of reasons. Things such as keeping up to date with my blogging, reading, writing, and numerous other activities. And, yes, teaching does take up a significant amount of time but I use it as an excuse as well.
I guess being a teacher means that time goes so much more quickly than I feel it has a right to. That being said, it’s heading into summer here in New Zealand which means it’s nearly the end of the year.
And, more importantly, it’s nearly time for NaNoWriMo.
It’s that time of the year again. San Diego Comic Con.
Well, it’s nearly that time but I am back in California, hanging with my Uncle and family over here. This also means that I’ve been drinking far too many ice cold caffeinated beverages and trying to relax but also trying to stimulate my brain in a creative sense.
Recently I splashed out and bought an iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil after a colleague purchased one as I saw some of the creative things she was doing with hers and it spurred me to indulge myself. And, if I’m honest, it has been one of my best purchases in a while. I’m currently typing out my post on it and, I’m impressed with the developments from my old iPad 2.
I even started drawing again. I mean it’s just a little bit of sketching but it’s a start. The apps that I’ve been using are Procreate and Good Notes. Read More »
The aim is to have three different people update on different days of the week. I’m Monday’s contributor though I’m not sure what I am going to write about just yet. I have several ideas but none of them I’m truly sold on.
It’s been an expensive week for me. My laptop, which had survived many overseas trips, adventures and stories, finally decided to give up. After three hours of me trying to restart it and getting nothing but a flashing icon I knew that I had to shell out for a new computer. So I am typing this from my (refurbished) new MacBook Pro. I almost went back to Windows but, for what I wanted, the prices were very similar. My new laptop arrived on Thursday and, although I hate parting with money, it has been well spent.
