My summary of February 2019

This month has appeared to be more productive than I originally thought. In fact, I’ve been so busy, I had to publish this summary a week later than planned.

Freelance Work

These past few weeks, I’ve been deep down in various freelance jobs for Disability Horizons and AccessAble:

  • I wrote an article at Disability Horizons promoting Nimbus Disability’s Access Card scheme.
  • I created a video and blog review of the AccessAble app in Basingstoke.
  • I’ve begun prepping for interviews with famous disabled people for Disability Horizons.
  • I attended the Team BRIT’s racing academy launch as Disability Horizons’ reporter. Read my full article and watch my video coverage.
  • I’ve registered to attend the Attitude is Everything awards event as reporter for Disability Horizons.
  • I’ve registered to attend Naidex at the end of March.

More details of the above are available in my blog roundup below.

Books

Continuing my challenge to read more classic literature, this month I read Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I was inspired to read this book from the episode of the 90s sitcom Friends, where Rachel encourages Joey to read it. It was a beautiful, heart-warming story filled with love, kindness and emotion. It was interesting to learn how young women lived and grew up in the 1800s.

Bohemian Rhapsody – sing-along screening

Three weeks ago, I went to a sing-along screening of the award winning biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody at the Farnham Maltings, Surrey.  I did see the film for the first time back in November but when I saw this event advertised on social media, I immediately decided I wanted to go. I was disappointed we were unable to sing along the first time so to have the opportunity to sing along this time was great.  It was the closest thing I was going to get to see Queen play live with Freddie Mercury. Unfortunately not as many people as I thought did join in with the singalong. I think I ended up being the loudest of them all.
