monthly goals march

They’re a few days late, but here (finally!) are my monthly goals for March. I’m going to break up this post under the four headings I used last month again, because I found that to be quite an effective way to articulate my priorities. Under each heading, though, I’m going […]

MONTHLY READING REVIEW #2 | FEBRUARY

February has been a big month of reading and, in particular, of fiction, which is something I thought would happen (as mentioned in my January monthly reading review) after rekindling my love of fiction last month. One of my February goals was to read ten books, and it’s a goal […]

The Power of Nora

One of my earliest non-children’s film memories is of Meg Ryan standing at the observation deck of the Empire State Building holding a backpack and a teddy bear. My mum was sitting next to me on the couch, fighting back tears as she always did during the happy ending. (I use […]
