As I walked back across the Kurilpa to my car at QPAC after the stargazing world record event tonight, I passed the William Jolly lit up like the fighting dragon nebula, a group of people partying along with a jazzy live band covering Daft Punk outside GOMA, and many runners on the boardwalk next to the mangroves participating in the Darkness to Daylight challenge to raise money for domestic violence prevention. Sometimes this little town feels very lively
At the stargazing at Roma st Park waiting in line for a telescope. I was feeling lazy so I’m wearing a blanket over my gym gear. At least I’ll be a comfortable nerdy loner
Was not organised / social enough to find anyone to go with to the stargazing tonight, and there will be so many people there, I am starting to regret getting a ticket
Some years ago I tried Hello Fresh but quit after a couple of months because literally every vegetarian meal contained either rocket or feta (I'm not a big fan of either). They offered me a free meal box to try to lure me back.... why am I not surprised?
So tired and sore after physio today. Even my bruises have bruises
A co-organiser at DjangoCon Europe, Sasha, wrote a post about volunteer burnout, how conference organising has changed, and what issues we face as a community: https://medium.com/@mxsash/are-we-not-all-volunteer-organisers-here-and-does-it-matter-498e300e7366
Working with Sasha has always been a pleasure and I understand completely where she is coming from. I don't have any answers either.
I managed to salvage the afternoon by making a new batch of kombucha as well as assembling the first piece of IKEA furniture I have allowed in the house * - a step stool, because I am too short to reach the top shelves in my room and lugging the piano bench in anytime I needed to reach something was becoming tedious.
* I loathe flatpack furniture but at least it's made from real wood
