on ... life (#1)
The past few months — well, they’ve been hectic. And perhaps more to the point: I’ve been exhausted, frazzled, in a rut, pulled in every direction.
And yet, there have also been a couple of huuuge wins:
I’m finished with PhD coursework for the year, and will be returning my focus to the all-important research component! Looking forward to sharing early thoughts on research design, the inspiration for the work, and some reflections of the journey thus far.
As we zip towards July (!), I’m finishing up my tenure in a few of my voluntary advisory roles. These positions have been incredible springboards to great things, yet challenging and often uncomfortable — in ways that have nurtured my resilience, empathy and persistence. Hoping to put together some lessons learned very soon.
It’d been years since my last in-person conference — so huge thanks to the Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia (FECCA) for inviting to be part of their 2022 conference. Lots of takeaways and thoughts to digest. Will share a transcript of my presentation.
I’ve always loved being unreasonably busy, but in the name of self-care, I’m committing to investing more time in fewer things for the rest of the year — including writing, reconnecting with friends, and rest.
