Hey there! Good evening. It has been a while since I have written a blog post on my website and I wanted to change that. I'm going to be honest, it was tough thinking of content to post on a weekly basis and I think that's what contributed to me stopping last Spring. Since then a lot has happened so I wanted to write a little 2019 summary post and let you know what is happening in my life. I have reflected on the past year and having been reminded of just how much I did in 2019 by my Photos app on my iPhone, I was blown away!
This week Apple held their March 2019 keynote in California at the Steve Jobs Theatre. They held a services based conference this time and announced many new products that are upcoming this year. I have kept this blog post quite concise by publishing my notes that I took whilst watch the keynote so I hope they're quite easy to skim through and you find them useful.
I couldn't recommend podcasts enough at the moment. They are the perfect break from everyday life and a way to escape and make time for yourself within busy schedules. There are so many available for free to listen to and I have learnt so much so far this year! I have popped five podcasts in this blog entry that I would recommend highly and a little summary about each.
Music is a key element to working at a summer camp in the USA. There are many songs that are deemed inappropriate to play which can make things a little tricky. Each camp has their own policy on what can and cannot be played at camp but I've created a playlist to help you this season in America. When I worked at summer camp I compiled a list of songs that were child-friendly and that the kids there loved! I played this music for all ages ranging from five years old right up to seventeen. Hope you like it!
Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus! (yn Cymraeg/in Welsh). I was gong to put both versions Welsh and English in the title but that would have been a bit long! 1st March is 'the feast day of Saint David', the patron saint of Wales. The date we celebrate St David's Day is actually the day that he died back in 589 AD. I've done a bit of research as I've not studied it since school!
I visited Richmond in Virginia, USA over the Xmas and New Years break. I was there visiting my friends Adam and Michael and we visited plenty of restaurants and cafés. I wanted to post about this in a separate blog entry as there were so many meals I wanted to speak about. If you want to see what I got up to whilst there you can read my last blog post about my trip here.
