Weekly Newsletter #4

My thoughts and musings
My thoughts and musings
Hi friends, welcome to my weekly newsletter. This is just a space for me to share my favourite things I have encountered this week and updates on my projects. I hope by seeing my progress (and struggles) in “real time” will give you an insight into what I am doing and encourage you in whatever it is you are doing.

My favourite things this week
📚 Book - This week I read The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams for my monthly book club. I completely forgot about our meeting until two days before so had to read it very quickly. Overall I really liked the book and would recommend it for anyone interested in historical fiction but I did feel that it dragged towards the end - though that could have been a side effect of my rush to finish.
🎙 Podcast - Still making my way through the Game of Thrones series on Audible, still have 25 hours left in A Feast for Crows!
🧬 Article - This week I am late publishing my science article, will get to that after finishing this newsletter. I have been thinking a lot about the “why” behind science communication and what niche I want to play around in. There are already great science communicators out there so I want to ensure anything that I put out into the world adds value and is unique. I haven’t settled on my answer yet but will let you know when I do. I did update my website - check it out here.
Updates on my projects
The two areas that I try to work on each week (in addition to my day job) are (a) building multiple income streams and (b) science communication.
This week was a big step forward in one of my projects because I started my own GAMSAT tutoring service. The GAMSAT is an exam for entry into medical school in Australia, it is painful, stressful, and super expensive. I scored high in two of the sections so decided to help others do the same. I have started tutoring and have 3 students after a week (yay!) and have been uploading content on my YouTube channel. This is something I have been thinking about for a long time so I am glad I finally started (even though I am terrified and have so many reasons why this will fail). Keep putting one foot in front of the other.
