Work vs Life

danbo

There was an article a while ago with Marissa Mayer's thoughts on work life balance. Essentially it was that long hours were fine, as long as you didn't miss out on things that would make you resent it. I try and work manageable (sustainable!) hours but sometimes my work gets prioritised over my life. And my view ...

This Week

Life Gym and brunch with a new (local!) friend, faux-husband arrived from Sydney, all too briefly, which was amazing. Made it to an event at Twitter and got to catch up with a friend, had lunch with another (and dinner to round off the week, which was lovely), and spent the weekend in Shropshire for a wedding ...

The Day I Leave The Tech Industry

red curtain

I know that this will happen, that one day I will have had enough, and I will leave. It's something I think about on a regular basis, and wonder, what will I do after? Will I move to a cheaper city and make things, consult, and hope to make ends meet? Will I retreat still ...

This Week

Life A friend from the US was over, and it was great to see her, and one of my other friends returned from months away, so we got to catch up (and plot!) which was awesome. I still feel pretty energised, although I was pretty wrecked towards the end of the week but I actually took a ...

This Week

Life I've been feeling a bit flat lately, like I was doing little other than work, workout, and sleep (longer but at a lower quality than usual). So I've been making some changes, firstly I cut back on keeping food in my apartment - this drives me out in the morning at the weekend, and makes me ...

Some Thoughts on Blogging

how

Things I've Found Have a Backlog I always give the same advice when people ask me about starting a blog. I say: put together a month's worth of content first. As far as I know, no-one who has asked me this has actually started a blog, so maybe it's bad advice. Or, maybe it's good advice, because if you ...

5 Things I Like About London

IMG_5707

I mostly hate living in London, and plan to follow this with a post with the 5 things I hate most about it. But let's start with the positives. 1. Culture There is so much art, much of it free, and great theatre (often with cheap tickets available on weeknights) that my goal to do something cultural ...

This Week

Life My week consisted of just work and the gym, but I had a wonderfully social weekend - my friend's engagement party on a boat, brunch, and the V&A. Also managed to get in some Cate-time - gym, reading a novel, etc. Work Busy exhausting, but in a good way. I feel like my project and my little ...
