In my opinion Yeah! Worth it
It made me feel: pleased

How I did it:

There were two keys for me - keeping track and mixing it up. I kept a record on a tumblr I set up for the purpose, where I just posted a goodreads link each time I finished a book. I’ve previously tried to include brief notes or reviews, or have included other media consumption, but that has proved a barrier to staying up to date. Otherwise, I read widely and in lots of different formats - on my kindle app, in real book form, using audio books, and sometimes text to speech. And I was flexible (read more)

    October update! As of yesterday, I've read 40 books so far, with a few in progress. I think that puts me on track for 50 by the end of the year, but I can't slow down!

    Three month review: as of 28 March, I'd read 13 books, including one YA novel and one graphic novel - but otherwise a mix of fiction and non-fiction, classics and new releases.

    This tally doesn't include single issue comics or children's books, of which I've also read several, mostly to kids.

    Numerically this puts me on track for the year so far!

Attend la Biennale di Venezia

In my opinion Yeah! Worth it
It made me feel: pleased

How I did it:

The real challenge is to get to Venice at the right time for the Biennale. It happens every second year, for about five months at a time. This year I had a friend's wedding to attend in Vienna and I worked out the connection to Venice wouldn't be too onerous - I came via Slovenia and Trieste, which are both cool places in their own right. I booked an AirBnB that was walking distance to the exhibition venues, bought a ticket online, and today - away I went!

It made me feel: pleased

How I did it:

It turns out there is a 'floating centre' about ten minutes from where I live! I had a free evening, and after checking everything out, booked in. I arrived about 15 mins early, as instructed, and after a brief check in process was led to my pod. The process was explained, I had a shower, and then I was floating! There were a few things that took some adjustment for me - I was fidgety and unsure about what to expect. But the hour passed incredibly quickly. The physical sensation was like being (read more)

In my opinion Yeah! Worth it
It made me feel: pleased

How I did it:

I spent about 30 minutes a day, nearly every day, working through the tree of French exercises. I also used the bots for extra practice! I'll continue practicing daily for a while, since completing the exercises is just step one - I still need to perfect my recollection of all the vocabulary and grammar that the course touched on.
