20 for 2020: week 31
Week 31: Week of 27 July
I feel like this week went by incredibly quickly and I didn’t get a lot done.
I got my mark for my uni assignment (thing 8) that I had struggled and tortured myself over and was overwhelmed by my result. In a good way. I really didn’t think I’d nailed it at all but the lecturer obviously did. Now I only have one more unit to complete and the course is finished.
I was at work on Thursday and the sewing machine people called me to organise a time to fix my machine at my place (thing 2). “How about this afternoon?” he asked. Even with my magical superpowers of workplace flexibility, that wasn’t quite enough notice, so it will have to wait until next week.
I didn’t do any work on my Photoshop course (thing 7) but I did catch up on the backlog of 2020 photos in my Hobart Street Corners project. It’s a project I started in 2018 to document the streets of Hobart as they were at one moment in time on my phone. It’s gone a bit quiet this year because I haven’t been out taking photos much since the March lockdown and even now I’m only in town one day a week. But I’m doing what I can. I guess if I run out of photos this year though, there is a backlog of 2018 and 2019 photos to work through. (And a potential thing for the 21 for 2021 list . . .)
I spent a bit of time refining some of my systems to try and be more organised, which is related to the Indistractable work (thing 13). A big part of this was going through my emails and getting them out of my inbox. An empty inbox is a beautiful thing. The challenge will be to keep it like that.
Sunday was the closest to the last Sunday of July so I went to the coffee shop to do my monthly Unravel Your Year review (thing 22). I got a bit stuck on a couple of the questions so I’ll have to think about them a bit more. Something for next week as I plan my study program.
