20 things about me–10 years on.

A new start10 years ago, I wrote one of these “look at me / self-indulgent wankery” articles, because everyone else in the blogosphere was writing them.

Yes, this blog has been around 10 years.

So here’s a new list of 20 things about me.

  1. Completed a “Spontaneity” course at Impro Melbourne.
    Many benefits to doing Improv, it’s FUN, is the main reason.
  2. Enjoy traveling on “C” Roads.
  3. Grief? Yes, I could tell you some stories.
  4. Loath reviews, especially comedy reviews.
  5. Text messaging? Not healthy for close relationships.
  6. Fine stationary is a passion.
  7. Volunteering is a big part of my life.
  8. Didn’t take up opportunities when they were offered.
    which meant I missed out on some great things ….
    I need to say “Yes” more often.
  9. Favorite TV series: Life On Mars.
  10. Health and Safety will be something I’ll be doing much more of in 2016.
  11. In 2015, I saw 1 comedy/theatre show per week.
  12. Met some of my idols.
    Rod Quantock was a pleasure to meet.
  13. “As a goal in life, you could do worse in life than try to be kinder”.
  14. Writing. Looking forward to the Creative Writing course (Jan 2016).
  15. Made, and lost, a couple of good friends.
  16. Karma, I believe in it.
  17. Single.
  18. SAMBA. Simple application, never updated, causes issues. Loath it.
