Day 294 – Planted a Tree

Whether you've seen the latest David Attenborough documentary on Netflix or not, the fact that the natural world is suffering is inescapable. Climate change is a real and immediate threat – the wildfires in Australia and the US this year have been catastrophic – and it's not going away. There is a global target of… Continue reading Day 294 – Planted a Tree

Day 293 – Speed Card Game

In my mind card games belong to childhood holidays with my grandparents. A time with no TV, no internet, no distractions. In the last 20 years I've admittedly played very few card games aside from poker, but today I was feeling full of cold and very sorry for myself and wanted the easy fun of… Continue reading Day 293 – Speed Card Game

Day 292 – Lava Lamp

I had a lava lamp as a teenager and I thought it was the best thing ever. I have no idea why I loved this 70s staple, or why they were even still selling them, but I felt so deeply cool for having one in my bedroom! Today, I sadly don't have a lava lamp… Continue reading Day 292 – Lava Lamp

Day 291 – German Citizenship Test

I promise this was more fun than it sounds! If you're not familiar with my blog, a quick introduction is necessary: I'm Hannah, I'm British, and I've lived in Frankfurt, Germany for the past 8 years. That information should tell you that today's new thing, taking the German citizenship test was the real deal! Brexit… Continue reading Day 291 – German Citizenship Test

Day 290 – Patchwork

This is, without a doubt, one of the worst new things I've done. Yes, worse than that bloody Rubik's Cube, and worse than the scratch art or playing Minecraft - it was terrible. I bought a patchwork kit in good faith, expecting it to be a cute little sewing project that I could use as… Continue reading Day 290 – Patchwork

Day 289 – Comping

I would wager nearly all of us have entered a competition at one time or another. Whether the prizes are small or big, it doesn't matter – sometimes it's the thrill of the 'what if?' that drives us. I entered a competition on Instagram to enter a cookbook this morning, and it sparked a memory.… Continue reading Day 289 – Comping

Day 288 – Welsh Cakes

This week has suddenly become a lot colder, and all at once am I thankful that I was only borrowing my friend's dog. She's now gone home so I get to stay in my nice warm bed in the mornings, instead of grumpily trudging out the door with an excited pup. The cold weather does… Continue reading Day 288 – Welsh Cakes

Day 287 – Body Language

Cast your mind back to the early 2000s. Big Brother was the program to watch during the summer, in the UK anyway, and it kick-started a whole new wave of celebrity culture. Sometimes, whilst we were avidly glued to our screens, watching these 12 strangers locked into a house together, a body-language expert would pop… Continue reading Day 287 – Body Language

Day 286 – Got Hypnotised

Laughter yoga? Done. Mukbang videos? You betcha. Screamed in Iceland? Virtually been there and got the t-shirt. Consider today's new thing a new entry in the "Hannah does something weird" series as I tried to be hypnotised. Photo by MK Hamilton on Unsplash I was always very sceptical about hypnotism. I didn't believe one person… Continue reading Day 286 – Got Hypnotised

Day 285 – Archery

I've always wanted to try my hand at archery. It's a sport I have no interest in watching, but I always think it would be fun to try. I'm purely basing this on my experience of using a bow and arrow in video games – Wii Sports Resort, any Zelda game – but I also… Continue reading Day 285 – Archery
