The Year of Fun #10: Go to a Museum

  If you read the title, you’ll know already that I did not uphold my planned fun activity this week which was to go to a car boot sale. Unfortunately the British springtime weather just didn’t seem appropriate for a wander around parked cars on the 9th floor of a car park. So I did […]

CIP051: Joe Moran on Shyness

In this week’s episode of the Creative Introvert podcast I talk to Joe Moran, historian of the everyday, about his book on shyness, ‘Shrinking Violets.’ I was a bit surprised to find this is nothing like the self-help books I normally find myself reading, and more of a history/biography/celebration of shyness and I found myself […]

The Year of Fun #9: The Orchestra

By far the classiest, most cultured edition of the Year of Fun so far – I went to see (and hear) the orchestra! I’ve only been to the orchestra once before: the result of a spare ticket needing a taker, and I took it. Honestly, the first time: I wasn’t super excited. I like live […]

The Year of Fun #8: Scratch Art

Nearly two months into the Year of Fun and as far as I’m concerned, this has definitely made what are normally pretty hellish months… actually quite fun.

So why on earth is improv – or improvisation theatre – so bloody terrifying?   I know people like to throw around statistical nuggets like ‘fear of death is second […]

The Year of Fun #6: Crochet a Bunny

Agghhh! My first fun fail. Ok: not a 100% fail, but an… incomplete challenge. Last week’s fun assignment was… to crochet a bunny. I was so relieved! Finally something that cost me next to nothing, didn’t require booking anything or even leaving the house. And at first, all went swimmingly. I found a Youtube tutorial […]

The Year of Fun #5: Barista Skills

I’ll admit I am a bit of a stereotype in certain ways when it comes to the typical laptop lifestyle entrepreneur/freelancer creative type. In that… I am all about COFFEE! I start my day with coffee, and if I don’t, then I turn into feral Cat: which you would not want to be around. I […]
