The One Year Mark: 101 in 1001

Can you believe that it has been one year since I sat down in my apartment in Cork (!!) and wrote out my 101 in 1001 list? It is a hefty list, with some pretty major goals on it. I have severe doubts that I will get through all of them by my November 26, […]

Quitting My Job Without Another One Lined Up Was the Best Risk I Ever Took

It was a risk. A huge risk. I knew that I should be grateful just to have a job, to be able to pay my bills, and keep food on the table. But there was something missing. No, it wasn’t just that. My current situation was actively making me miserable. I got a tight, anxious […]

Trying a New Art Medium

Guiding Lights Will Get Me There

The Overtracking Trap

As I’m sure you all know by now – unless you’ve never been here before, in which case, hello! – I am all about the goals. I am always setting goals for myself: goals for the next 1001 days, goals for the next six months, goals for the day/week/hour. Reading goals, writing goals, exercise goals. […]
