Daily Prompt – Musical Marker

We all have songs that remind us of specific periods and events in our lives. Twenty years from now, which song will remind you of the summer of 2014?

I wouldn’t necessarily say that there is any music that is that iconic that it would bring back memories of what is actually our winter 2014.

Daily Prompt: To Boldly Go…

An impending new year gives rise to reflection and goal setting. What will your goals for 2014 be? It’s never to early to start thinking about self improvement!

Oh maaaaannnnn. Goal setting!? Really?!

So. Not. Me.

I guess that probably explains a lot. And let’s be honest here, the year isn’t over yet. It’s not even December. I don’t even have my Christmas tree up!! It’s too early for goal setting.

Goals for self-improvement. Jeebus. I think generally speaking, my list for self improvement would be the following:

  • Make more time for my friends: This year I’ll admit to being too neglectful of my friends and not being very social. That needs to change next year.
  • Read more books: I keep buying books, but my problem is I don’t actually dedicate time to reading them. That also needs to change next year.
  • Start going to the gym: Now, I’m already at the gym quite a lot, but teaching classes isn’t the same as doing a workout for myself. I need to try and find time to do this.
  • Get more sleep: going to bed every night at midnight, 1am, and getting up at 7am simply isn’t enough. I need more sleep, and I need to change that too.
  • I need to alter my diet / meals: Getting home late and having dinner late needs to change. I think I want to try a couple of weeks of not eating dinner, and instead, having a protein shake or something for dinner. Most nights we’re not eating until 9:30 – 10 – 10:30pm and it’s not right. Something needs to change, but it needs to change and we need to actually stick to it!!

I think that’s more than plenty to focus on right now… However, there’s a huge difference between making goals and actually following through with them. Besides, holidays and Christmas are coming up, so I’ve got a few weeks of extreme laziness to look forward to. I can deal with all of this stuff after that. hehehe.



Daily Prompt: Google and Rescue Operation

What was the last thing you searched for online? Why were you looking for it? 

The last thing I Googled was the Electric Run in Melbourne which is happening in April 2014.

I first heard about it a couple of months ago when I saw a random video at the bottom of an article I was reading in my Feedly (which I really need to stop neglecting). I followed the link to the website, and literally sat there for a couple of minutes with my jaw on the ground wanting to know a) what the hell I was looking at and, b) TELL ME EVERYTHING!!!

Turns out it’s called Electric Run – it’s not a timed event, it’s an experience. Different ‘worlds’ along the course, with live music, and the photos keep showing all these people looking like they’re having an incredible time with glowsticks galore and neon EVERYTHING, oh, and some awesome live DJ’s!!. I still wasn’t entire sure what it was, hell, I DON’T EVEN RUN, but I wanted to do this. 

Sitting there watching some clips of previous Electric Run events, in my head I’m screaming “SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!”, but rego’s weren’t open for another 6-7 weeks. Today, rego’s opened and I was there right on 9am at my computer with my credit card waiting to register. In hindsight, I should have created a Team, because now a bunch of friends want to join and we could have been one giant team instead 😦 Oh well. It’ll still be amazing, regardless.

And, a perfect excuse to work out some ridiculous costume 😀
