In an attempt to start working on the goals I set for myself for this month, I decided to trial reading outdoors in the sunshine.
I set myself up on a quilt in some dappled shade.
I managed to read my article in the allotted 1-1.5 hours and discovered some pros and cons of reading academic material outdoors:
PRO: It’s really pretty
PRO: This handsome fellow visited me a number of times
CON: This little lady decided to try napping on my papers
CON: I kept getting cornered by green ants – and then one bit me!
Despite the scary green ants, I did succeed with my goal of finding reading motivation outdoors. I found the sunshine, fresh air, and new environment a nice change from my desk/couch.
Unfortunately Albury has turned off the sun for the next few days so I cannot repeat this #acwri adventure as soon as I would like to do so!
