A-Z Challenge: Theme Reveal!

I had this all planned out. My theme for this April’s A-Z Challenge was going to be based around books to tie-in with the general theme of this blog.

But: I want to change things up a bit. If you look to the right-hand margin of this blog, you’ll see that I’m a travel journalist. At least that’s what my B.A. is in.

So my A-Z Challenge Theme is: Postcards

There are a lot of places I have been and still a lot more that I want to go and there are stories to tell about all of them.

It’ll give me a chance to show some of my other writing, and there’ll be plenty of pictures. And as I was a student for most of my travels, it still ties in with Study. Read. Write.

To Do List – Week of March 23

I’m not gonna lie. It’s not gonna be pretty. There’s so much to do this week and I don’t know where to start.

  • Submit CCC502 Assignment #5
  • Start planning MA501 Final Paper
  • Write & Submit Sherlock Holmes Story by 26/03
  • Attend Granddad’s 90th birthday lunch
  • Attend Granddad’s 90th birthday party
  • Complete Theatre & Globalisation module #6
  • Complete Global Health & Humanitarianism module #5
  • Complete Modern Middle East module #3
  • Complete Australian Literature module #3 & #4
  • Complete Dutch module #3
  • Complete Interviews module #3
  • Complete International Development module #5
  • Complete Modern Business & Organisations module #3 & #4
  • Complete Community Journalism module #2
  • Plan English lesson
  • Teach English extra tuition

Plus, you know, update the blog (the scheduling isn’t really working out for me right now… ), write a few things I’d really love to write but don’t have time for, and you know, maybe grab a drink with friends.

But there’s no decent pub in this godforsaken place and I’m sick of having to go to the same bistro over and over. I want a beer, dammit. This week is already off to a spectacularly bad start and I’m not seeing it getting that much better. Maybe I should take up yoga and meditation so everything going on around me doesn’t affect me the way it does. For now, I just need to concentrate to get through the assignments and do as much as I can today.
