Project Lu 26/09/14

I came up with an idea the other day while in Birmingham at a work conference.
I decided to start a project named 'Project Lu', after the blog and as it is my preferred name.

The premise of the project is that I pick 10 things that will challenge me, take me out of my comfort zone and help balance my life a bit better. It will also take my mind away from the world of men and allow me to focus on me for a while.

The positives of this project are:
1. New adventures
2. I get to write about my experiences (I love to write)
3. Better work/life balance
4. It will allow me to start focusing on me and stop me from focusing too much on the wrong people.
5. I will meet new people.

So, I sent some feelers out. I have a few great suggestions but I want more:

- rock climbing
- go and participate in 5 religious services and blog about the positives
- volunteer at a shelter for a week
- Learn sign language
- endurance training
- first aid ( advanced training)
- go to a rangers match
-  join a group
- play golf


Does anyone have any other suggestions?
I would love to hear them!!
I will suss out what is available/feasible for me and decide next week.

Think hard, folks!!!

Turning 28.

Well. It happened. I turned 28. You know, ignoring a manic depression which lasted all of 20 minutes, I'm pretty ok with it. Rather than shy away from the fact that 30 is just around the corner, I've decided to confront it. Head on. "How?" I hear you ask. Well I have decided to celebrate the final years of being a twenty-something by embarking on a '30 things to do before I'm 30' challenge. I've been working on it for weeks. My friends here in Edinburgh have been really encouraging and I think together we have compiled a pretty mega list. Here we go (in no particular order) 1)Read the BBC top 100 books 2)Bungee jump (I should mention here I'm afraid of heights) 3)Go zorbing 4)Learn a new language 5)Visit the Sistine Chapel 6)Make a quilt (I've always wanted to. I blame Winona Ryder) 7)Visit Tiffani in Utah 8)Parachute Jump with Agata 9)Raise money for charity 10)Do the Great Scottish Run (ugh. The idea pains me.) 11)Sell something

Life of Lu 7/6/2012

I love Edinburgh. I think you should know. I love it truly. Every day I feel more settled. Every week I feel new friendships grow deeper. I really am content. So content that I sing. Poorly. I should apologise for that. I really like my new job. Sometimes I feel my head may explode with information. Then it digests and I feel capable again. It is nice to use my brain again. It does help that I have wonderful colleagues. They make it easy to love the job. I will be working with them for at least 7 more weeks. Then I finish my training. After that... who knows? Euro 2012 fever has taken over our wee flat. It bores me terribly but the boy loves it, so I pretend. I pretend quite well. I predict Russia to win. He reckons Portugal. I hope I win! I have a new cousin! And one on the way. I wish I could meet them soober than October. Hurry up October! I should mention that we're popping over in October. Pints? Anyone? Lastly, I received an amazing gift at the we

January

I found out yesterday that I was one of the winners of the photography competition that I entered as one of my 30 before 30. My photograph will now be used in a calender as the January image. How exciting! What do you think?
