#47: Miscellany

I’m under a big amount of stress and I am struggling to deal with it in a constructive way. I talk about being back and all the adult-like responsibilities I have.

I’m having to go away for a few weeks so this will be the last episode for about 3 weeks.I’ll be back soon!

Another “Break”…

Hello everybody! Something unexpected has come up and I’ll be away from home for three weeks starting in March. That means that I’ll have to take a break from podcasting for a while.

I have to travel about 200 km (124 miles) one-way, so going back and forth in one day isn’t an option. It would take me about 2 hours to drive there. 4 hours of driving after a full day isn’t something I want to do.

Optionally, grab yourself a KitKat. The green tea ones from Japan are really good.

I’ll be around though. If I need to vent, I’ll come back and post here.

#46: Back into Summer

It’s been a really long time since I’ve posted a blog or a podcast episode, but here’s one. I apologise in advance for the crappy sound quality, but it’s been really hot and I had to have a fan on.

Oh, I’m back in Australia now too.

#45: Holidaying

I talk about what’s going on now and what’s happening in the future. My husband is visiting this area for the first time ever soon, so that’s pretty exciting. This is the last episode for the year, so happy holidays and have a great end of the year.

#44: Birthday Celebrations

I talk a little bit about my birthday and the problems I’m having with my podcast and recording. I’ve decided to record short ones for now and might change that once I get back. I honestly can’t remember what I’ve talked about in this one. I used my phone to record this time because the audio quality was awful using my AirPods.

There is one more episode before I take a little break. I think that’s next week. My husband comes to my hometown next Friday, so I’m going to try my best to do it before then.

Podcast Publishing Dates Reshuffled

Be thankful that I still care enough to post these things. Right now, I’m not really sure how long I’m going to keep this up. Maybe my schedule that I made for myself was a bit too eager. Anyway, I said that I’d do them, but I need to shuffle a few of them around because I’m too lazy to record and I also must record them when I’m by myself which isn’t going to happen during this USA visit (and that’s not really a bad thing).

I know the quality on the last recording wasn’t that great so I’m going to try something different. I brought along my microphone, but it’s only so portable. So instead of using the Airpods this time, I’ll switch to the iPhone-included earbuds next time. We will see how that goes. Maybe I can get some volume to my voice without feeling like I’m screaming! (Actually, I’m not sure what was recording my voice… was it my watch or was it the Airpods?)

Right now, I’m moving the one that’s supposed to be published on the 6th to the 11th or 13th, and the one that is supposed to be published on the 20th to the 23rd or 24th. I’m going to try my best to get them done before then, because the 20th until the 31st will be incredibly busy for my husband and me.

Anyway, again, I hope you’re well. Everybody take care of yourselves!

#42: Returning to the Origin

Before I fly back to the USA, I talk about my website development on complicatednoise.com, getting packed (and lack thereof), family issues back home, flying anxiety, what Australians think Texas is like (and what Texans think about Australia) and more. Recorded over 2 days. 18:15 starts the new day.

I’m in the process of moving things over to the new website, so I’ve stopped using the web-based player for now. I’ve almost got the new guide up at least!

#41: Pollinated

The pollen in the air is making my life miserable and keeping me inside way too much. In this episode, I was originally going to talk about Australian things that I don’t like (but it didn’t happen). I feel safer in Australia than I do in the USA. Bringing things back to the USA. My first sleep monitor results and how I was surprised by the results. I love statistics – that’s why I’m happy to use it. My continuing work on the website and a few problems I may encounter while overseas. Need to chat with me, confidentially? Go for it! (Contains a few words that you might (or might not) want to repeat in front of your granny.)

#40: Pictures of You

What, in my opinion, is one of the best ways to connect with your partner? More photo shoots! I talk about what’s been happening to the both of us over the last few weeks.

#39: Unimpressive Numbers

I talk about my lack of sleep, getting a new mattress without making sure that it will fit in the bed frame, and the unimpressive statistics of my podcast and what effects it has on the future of my recording and website development. (Not quitting yet. I’m chugging along for the foreseeable future.)
