The to-do list

2 years ago, for day 107 by Adam πŸ’˜

Is a blank sheet of paper more intimidating than a long to-do list? Since the coronavirus lockdown began, I've tried to tame my ambitions. At least, I've tried not to set unattainable goals for lockdown. It's easy to take something like being stuck indoors and tell yourself that now is...

Breaking a habit

2 years ago, for day 106 by Adam πŸ’˜

It's been a while. I guess nothing proves the monotony of coronavirus lockdown like my desire to return to Write Together. I last wrote here on January 15 2019. Three days earlier, on January 12, I wrote about what would happen should my habit break, my writing streak lapse. Would...

The joy of osteopathy

3 years ago, for day 15 by Adam πŸ’˜

I have to be honest. A few weeks ago, I didn't know what an osteopath was. Maybe I had an incling that they had something to do with joints, but definitely nothing more than that. Then my back started spasming suddenly and I realised that for months - maybe years...

Customer support: an extravagant interaction

3 years ago, for day 14 by Adam πŸ’˜

[Gonzalo E. has joined the conversation.] Hello, how may I help? My name is Gonzalo Espinola and it is my pride and joy to be here to help you today. It is a brutal and crying shame that you have to speak to me today. It means that something has...

Thoughts on The Favourite

3 years ago, for day 13 by Adam πŸ’˜

Yorgos Lanthimos isn't the most conventional of filmmakers. His previous film, The Lobster, is described on its Wikipedia page as "absurdist dystopian black comedy film". Any film that requires 4 adjectives to get even a little closer to describe it clearly isn't conventional. I haven't seen The Lobster, but I've...

When habit breaks

3 years ago, for day 12 by Adam πŸ’˜

It’s 10.15pm and I’m knackered. I’ve had a hangover today, and unlike normally, it hasn’t abated at all in the evening. If anything it’s got worse. So I guess this is where we really find out how strong this habit is becoming. I almost forgot about writing today, and then...

Learning to swim

3 years ago, for day 11 by Adam πŸ’˜

When I started this job, I didn't have a clue. I had part of a clue. But not a whole clue. But I convinced everyone that I might be able to one day have a clue, and so I got the job. The hard bit came when I had to...

The moment I fell in love with football

3 years ago, for day 10 by Adam πŸ’˜

As a kid, I didn't enjoy watching sport. It made me stick out among my peers. I prefered music, and theatre. My parents both watch loads of sport, and my sister was always the one who was good at it. My Dad's a massive Burnley FC fan. So if I...

The things they

3 years ago, for day 9 by Adam πŸ’˜

The things they never tell you Everyone is making it up as they go along. Even the best don't actually know what they're doing. Sometimes, the people you think are happiest are, in fact, the saddest. Learning is difficult. Being a good friend is harder than it looks, and you...


3 years ago, for day 8 by Adam πŸ’˜

Here's where I'm at. I'm questioning everything. My brain's a bit of a mess with it. It turns out re-prioritising is difficult. Here's where I'm at. Do I really get value from scrolling through Instagram mindlessly? No. The app's now gone from my phone. How much better informed am I...
