Intense Sunday afternoon run. Pace was slow but my heart rate was right up there!
Day 17 of #mbsept
Oof! Sun is beating down! 33°C (91°F) is pretty unpleasant weather for spectating the netball grand finals! Even more unpleasant for the players though!
Day 16 of #mbsept
Red: A red book I have not yet read
Day 15 of #mbsept
Statue of King Gilgamesh. Donated to The University of Sydney by the Assyrian community on the university’s 150th anniversary (or sesquicentennial if you speak Fancy).
Day 14 of #mbsept
Glowing heater and screen, watching the Keynote live at 3am on a cool spring morning.
Day 13 of #mbsept
Panic! Or not… I don’t actually drink coffee 🤷♂️
Day 12 of #mbsept
Retrospect. In retrospect I should have taken a photo of a historical display in the library at work but I’m pleased with the look of this photo.
Day 11 of #mbsept
[Water] cycle… thin bands of cloud (or is that smog?) over Middle Harbour, Sydney.
Day 10 of #mbsept
Day 9 of #mbsept
Yonder… some Aussie bush, just across the road (for now, suburban development is coming)
Day 8 of #mbsept
Panorama of another beautiful spring day in Sydney
Day 7 of #mbsept
Well, this is a healthy (well) [stair]well (mainly because I couldn’t safely take a photo of the lift well)
Day 6 of #mbsept
Forest (sort of) at night
Day 5 of #mbsept
Orange (although it’s often still referred to as The Purple Door for historical reasons)
Day 4 of #mbsept
Finished listening to Echo Lake by Joan Sauers 📚🎧
Precious… a fitting prompt for (Aussie?) Father’s Day today. Kids weren’t interested in being photographed so I took a photo of my wedding ring and Melissa’s engagement and eternity rings
Day 3 of #mbsept
Buildup… A very literal response to today’s prompt but I quite like the striking blue of the sky
Day 2 of #mbsept
Abstract… not concrete…
Day 1 #mbsept
[Mostly] finished reading The Big Con by Mariana Mazzucato and Rosie Collington 📚
Not exactly a page turner but helpful to reflect on the role of consultants and how to make sure they’re providing a long term benefit to an organisation
The excitement (and nervousness) are building for my first ever conference talk!
More holiday reading down the coast: Deadly Cross by James Patterson 📚
Finished reading: 23rd Midnight by Maxine Paetro and James Patterson 📚
Underwhelming story and writing, never really felt immersed or invested 🤷♂️
Very excited (and nervous) to be accepted as a speaker at RubyConf Thailand in October 🥳
If all goes to plan I’ll be implementing a HTCPCP server live on stage.
Looking forward to listening to the keynote speakers!
Thoroughly enjoyed reading Joanna Jenkins’ debut novel, How to Kill a Client 📚
I had the killer figured out early on and was patting myself on the back, right up until the final chapters proved me wrong.
Found A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin on the bookshelves of our holiday rental. Good story but much grittier than what I normally read 📚
