It’s been a little while since I last wrote a blog post. Even the last couple of posts had been written a few weeks in advance so I could keep releasing when I was travelling over the New Year break.
A lot has been happening this year. Most aspects of my life have gone through a radical shift and are now completely different to where they were last year.
These shift haven’t been easy. They’ve been great, but also a challenge. But I firmly believe in being taken out of your comfort zone to learn and grow so I wouldn’t have changed how anything has gone so far.
Student No More
First up, I’m no longer a student having technically graduated in January. Without this change the rest would probably not happened so I’m really glad uni is over.
I’ve written some posts (this, and this) in the past of my thoughts on finishing uni.
From Freelancer.com to Canva
At the end of last year I was working at Freelancer.com, but from January that is no more.
I’m not a Software Engineer at Canva!
There’ll probably be more posts about this in the future but for now I’ll just say that I’m enjoying it even more than I imagined. It’s been over three months now and everyday I’m still excited to go to work!
North, East, and Now the Inner West
A change that has impacted more of my personal life is that I moved out of college, at UNSW, and I’m now living in a share house in Newtown.
It’s been a lot of work setting everything up, moving and buying a whole lot of new furniture but I’m starting to settle in and I’m pretty happy.
Finally I’ve planned to change the way I use this blog. It’s still going to serve as a sort of notebook, but it’s also going to be a kind of journal with ideas and musings about whats on my mind, in a real casual way.
There have been a lot of other, smaller, changes but I’ll leave it there for now.
This year started with focusing on the theme of Adaptability. At that time I didn’t know what or how I was going improve this aspect of my life but I knew that opportunities would pop up throughout the year. I just needed to keep an open mind and grab them.
