The Year of Fun #23: Afternoon Tea at a Cat Cafe

I’ll be honest: I was a bit reluctant to record today, partly because I’m simply not in the mood, and partly because I was feeling some guilt around the actual subject of today’s Year of Fun. I think I’ve gotten into the habit, particularly in recent YOF episodes, to pick things i think will be […]

The Year of Fun #22: A Sangha Sunday

I know I know! ANOTHER workshop. With a spiritual ilk. Is this the Year of Fun, or am I just having an existential crisis? Hopefully I justified my reasoning for these group-based activities a bit more last week, but if not: I’ll elaborate. When you work from home, when you revel in your alone time, and […]

The Year of Fun #21: Yin Yoga Workshop

Another group activity today, this time: a Yin yoga workshop. Why all the group activities, you might be wondering? After all, isn’t this an INTROVERT’S Year of Fun? It’s true, as an introvert I do value my alone time. Oh boy do I value it. And if I don’t get enough of it, yes, I […]

The Year of Fun #20: Holotropic Breathwork

My interest in the nature of the mind, consciousness and all things esoteric has been steadily growing since I was at university. That said, I wasn’t exactly scientific in my approaches to this exploration. A few space cakes won’t make you an existential philosopher, even if you think so at the time. I found yoga […]

The Year of Fun #19: Candle Making

A somewhat gentler Year of Fun challenge from last week… but not without it’s own risks of mild peril. Candle making was something that wasn’t actually on my Year of Fun bucket list, until a small brainwave I had a couple of months ago. Two male friends on separate occasions expressed their irrational love for… […]

The Year of Fun #18: Ayahuasca

Oh boy. Where to begin… I guess at the beginning. On January 14th 2018, I booked myself in for the trip of a life time. A trip to Peru… and a trip in Peru.   There was the flight, that was one part of the trip. Then there was the psychedelic trip. the spiritual trip. […]

The Year of Fun #17: Audience Participation

Last weekend was opening weekend and I surprised myself: I got stuck in to Brighton Festival for the first time.   On Saturday I went with a friend to a comedy gig. I didn’t have much in terms of expectations, I just knew it was at the right time of day (early evening – I’m […]

The Year of Fun #16: Book Club

Reading is one of the best solitary activities there is, and I for one have always been – since I could read I guess – a big old book worm.   But one thing that you can’t do alone, is discuss the book afterwards – and this is something I love to do. It’s like […]

The Year of Fun #15: BrightonSEO Conference

What what – an introvert at a conference!? I know – but remember I do like a challenge… This was an unexpectedly fun part of my week, and my conclusion for why this was is… FOCUS. My funk last week, I believe, is down to a lack of focus. A feeling that is definitely disturbing […]

The Year of Fun #14: Ice Cream at the Seaside

Another Year of Fun – another thing or two I’ve learned about FUN! Firstly, I have a confession to make.     I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately… nothing serious, just a bit of apathy that I know will pass. What’s weird is that things that might have excited me and challenged […]
