This is the 400th episode of the AmeriNZ Podcast!!! Who’d ever have guessed I’d make it? It only took me 6,028 days… I talk about all that first, then what I’ve been up to since last week’s episode. This episode is also 18 weeks in a row, actually.
It’s been a reflective time for me lately, with some anniversaries and the Pride 48 live-streaming weekend. I talk about all that first, then it’s on to some stuff in the New Zealand news. Next week: Episode 400!!!
Today’s episode is named after two anniversaries: Today is the seventeenth anniversary of my blog, and yesterday was the 28th anniversary of when I first arrived in New Zealand as a tourist, when Nigel and I met in person for the first time. This coming weekend is also the final Pride 48 Live Streaming Event, and I reminisce and opine about podcasting. Then, I briefly talk about a small project outside. Finally, I share a funny (to me) story form New Zealand’s news.
Dare I say it? Spring may have sprung! I also share my surprise at how well the pool noodles have worked. My main topic today is about why and how I developed my personal organisation system, and that’s actually a story about how I’m doing these days.
The weather is still a barrier—but I managed to move around it. This week is mainly an update on what’s going on, including everyone’s favourite topic, as well as things I talked about last week. Naturally, there’s also new stuff for me and for New Zealand that I talk about toward the end of the episode. The Rugby World Cup – France 2023 runs from September 8 to 28.
It’s cold—well, I think so, anyway. But, then, as I’ve said many times before, I’m not a fan of winter. I begin today talking about some sad news I received yesterday. I then talk about plans I made for my upcoming birthday. Also, I had a very good weekend.
