I have been super busy lately, and as warned, have not been posting much but yesterday, 7 November 2012 was exactly one year since I started this blog. It is also my 82nd post. Amazing.

I think it is incredible to look at what I’ve done over the last year, to take stock of all of the things I’ve changed and improved in my life, to realise that even with all of the ups and downs it’s been an amazing journey that I wouldn’t swap for the world.

I’ve started on my NaNoWriMo journey, and I’m at 13,262 words. It’s a really eye opening experience as a writer, something I didn’t think I could do, but something that I’m finding really liberating. I’m also finding my confidence is increasing, even just in terms of having something to say that would take up 50,000 words is something I couldn’t even comprehend last week, let alone a year ago! But here I am, a quarter of the way through the challenge and it feels like it’s going well.

Last week was a long weekend in Melbourne for most people, with Melbourne Cup Day (on Tuesday, a public holiday). My housemates and I went to the Gold Coast, in Queensland, to visit the theme parks and to generally relax. I thought I would end this very short update post with some photos from my trip.

See you after NaNoWriMo is finished and I can be a human again!
