The joys of the night in

2 years ago, for day 19 by Olly Browning 💘

One thing I learned very quickly after moving to London was: as nice as it is having a packed calendar and plenty of events/shows/catch-ups to attend, it's also super easy to overbook yourself. Without really paying attention you find yourself saying 'yes' to an invitation and before you know it...

Something I've been spending the past month wrestling with is, what's next for me? The past six months I've been working on a startup, but for reasons not worth going into here, I won't be working on that this year. I knew that may well be the case when I...

Last weekend in Poland

2 years ago, for day 19 by Bartosz Łęcki 🏆

I don't have much time to write since I'm getting prepared for the wedding of my friends. It's last weekend in Poland before moving out to Ireland for the next 3 to 5 years (or even more if we will like it there). I don't feel any sadness, just excitement....

Trust your colleagues

I have a problem where I get frustrated with something work-related but have difficulties expressing what I'm feeling. I can feel the negative energy that a situation is giving off but sometimes find it hard to pinpoint what or why it is that way. Other times I know the source,...

What is home, anyway?

2 years ago, for day 18 by Owen

It's almost the fifth year I've been living far from 'home' and I've been thinking a bunch about what that actually means: what is home? What defines it? I struggle, at the moment, to really put my finger on what it is, or the feeling of home, I think because...

What do I want? And how can I best get there? Hmm. Maybe these aren't the right questions. What if what I want is the journey, not the destination? It's not about "getting there" at all, is it? Hmm. I guess you can get to a place where you can...
