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.
Today is about a plan I designed to help me keep on track. It’s based on a system I designed for myself when I was a grassroots LGBTQ+ activist 30 years ago. I’m optimistic it’ll help me stay focused and remember things, but… well, time will tell.
It’s the end of 2022! I took advantage of my last opportunity to record in December and 2022 to do a little update episode. I’m not exactly sad to see 2022 go, but I’m definitely better than I was a year ago tonight. That’s a very good thing.
The weather has been shocking lately, and that’s interrupted my outside projects. I begin today’s episode talking about that, and a bit about the background to all the outside work. Then I move on to a completed project—yes, it happens sometimes. Even I’m surprised. After that, it’s a couple bits in the New Zealand news.
