I finally bought new headphones. They don’t even need to be plugged in, look!
Okay, I know bluetooth isn’t a new thing, but I’ve been needing proper headphones for, like, years. I’ve been using the little earbud type ones that came with a smartphone, and didn’t really fit my ears or have great sound. And now that I have a commute I really need some good ones to block out the bus noise. And for the office when I need to focus on some writing or web editing.
I feel bad every time I buy new stuff, especially lately! I’m very sad about the state of the environment and want to live as sustainably as I possibly can. But I realised it doesn’t mean that I should never buy something that I need.
So now I’m going to look at this doodle for a bit and try to convince myself that I really needed these headphones.
Maybe I’m not making much sense! I had a crazy busy, but very fun week at work with different projects.
You might not believe it based on my ramblings on this blog, but I started teaching English as a second language! It’s an evening class for adults once a week, and it’s soooo much fun, and my students are super motivated to learn.
I learn a lot about the English language too! My mum says teaching is the best way to learn, which is very wise and definitely true for me at the moment.
I tend to stop doodling when I get busy with work, but I want to change that. Especially since Inktober is coming up next week! I participated in the drawing challenge last year – see my drawings here:

I really want to do it again this year. It was really fun to draw something every day for a month, and only a bit stressful 😀 Last year, I had just quit my old job, so I didn’t even have to juggle a day job and drawing every day – and it was still a challenge. But we’ll see if I can manage – I’m going to try!
*Fun fact: My new headphones aren’t actually as big as I made them in the drawing 😀 But my smile is!
