March in review


Inspired by @paulienuh as always I've decided to start a monthly review of all the happenings in my life (finalllllly... lol jk). Even if no one gives AF about this, reflecting is saa good for the olde mental health & I can't commit to doing it daily, so why not?

Highlights

  • Completing a full week of user research fundamentals training in Newcastle. Iโ€™m now a UR queen ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ’โ€โ™€๏ธ

  • Starting to volunteer for Refugees at Home

  • Getting more sign ups to my e-newsletter yasssss ๐Ÿ“

Quote of the month

โ€œPast behaviour is the best predictor of future behaviourโ€ ๐Ÿค” food for thought? Iโ€™d say so. Using this to compete against my past, inconsistent gym going, self ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
