It's the first week of the media launch, the first few days after the party I threw at the hotel for many of my close friends, family and professionals that helped me along the way. We celebrated my five years of freedom. Yep, it's been five years in the real world.  Social Media accounts have been developed and released, including ​​YouTube and Patreon, both named under Seasonthisthyme. Twitter has also become a regular hang-out, under ...

YouTube footage is complete for the week, and Patreon material almost ready. All of the materials are ready for the big reveal to the world, via the Sunday papers. Then, the next day, the Onkaparinga Now newspaper.Am I ready for it? Yes. Am I prepared for what might happen? Never. How can we ever prepare when we know things are going to change dramatically almost overnight. Already my world has changed and I'm still catching up with it. My days h...

There needs to be a word beyond 'tired' and 'exhausted', but one that denotes satisfied tired or happily exhausted. Yet, still highlights a sense of feeling the extremes of worn out. Launch party has left me feeling just that. During the evening my nerves kept me alert, active and prepared for any problem-solving, only there didn't seem to be a need for solutions once the event started. Was it really going this smoothly? Did I really prepare THAT...

It's now hours from the launch party and I'm getting nervous. The powerpoints are complete, music rehearsed and musicians prepared, guest speakers arranged, speeches written, guests RSVP'ed, and a bunch of decorations going into the function rooms. Yes, this is really happening. It really is tonight. I haven't even chosen what to wear and already it feels like I'm prepared -- but totally unprepared at the same time. This is the day my life will c...

I never thought I'd meet anyone with a personality so unappealing, yet so vain. A person who had left my life, who during after-thought I realised was not intended for me, lacked values, and had overall succumbed to the pitiful excuses others made for them. Yes, this was a powerless person who couldn't pay for my attention. That's what hurt him the most. Instead of realising he would never earn back someone like me, he spent his life pining, thre...

Sometimes we see life as this novel that never ends. But really, it's the chapters that help us divide where we are in the plot, what we feel about the characters, and what we'd like to happen in the further sections. This is how life has developed for me lately. I'm sitting right on the last page of the previous chapter, about to start the new chapter, but unsure what I expect from the new segment of my life. It's now the eve of the launch party...

Ever had to give someone the most unexpected news and found your tongue wrapped into itself? Yep, that's how I felt. Here I was, about to call a journalist who had no idea what I'd been through the last five years, waiting to know why I had called. In my brain it sounded like, "Ijustwantedtotellyouaboutmylifeanditchanged!"The words began from my mouth. "Hi, it's Season. Back in 2005, you did a story about a girl in a bubble and how she managed he...

Less than 2 weeks to go. It's amazing how quickly time can burn through when you have so much to do. It's almost like time is spare when we have nothing to do, but sparse when we have everything to do. I think Einstein was incorrect with his analogy of time. Yesterday I met with Onkaparinga Council Environmental sector with their media representatives to discuss the launch party and its potential results. I hadn't seen the Environmental team for ...

Fears are within all of us. Sometimes they disappear fast, and other times, they take decades. For me, it was one of my biggest hauntings that had held on for many years. When I was seven, I remember a friend of my neighbours' had a baby. They said I could  hold him. He wriggled, which I wasn't prepared for. He rolled off my lap, his head bumped the pavement. His mother ran over to check him. While I don't remember his name, I never for...

In society there is a belief that everything has a cure. Take this pill, do this activity or be this type and everything will be okay. Have tough skin and you'll survive. Don't talk about it and you'll get over it. This isn't really the case, is it?One such friend had this issue. Their family was the out of sight, out of mind types. There wasn't always a statement of disappointment, but there wasn't acknowledgement either. Their other children we...
