It’s that time again when I reflect back over the month that was, and share with you a few things that I’ve been working on, published, or otherwise enjoyed.
April was a great month, full of abundant creativity, awesome music, and plenty of sunshine, here are just some of my personal highlights.
My Favourite Song of the Month
Before we go any further, I absolutely have to tell you about the song My Name is Human by Cape Cod, Massachusetts trio Highly Suspect.
Despite the fact that their incredible second album, The Boy Who Died Wolf has been out for over six months now, these guys have some how gone completely undetected on my radar for a while.
Then, I came across My Name is Human on this Spotify playlist, and have not been able to get this song out of my head for weeks.
Moving on, let me share with you a few things I’ve been working on this month.
I’m blessed to be working on content and blog writing for a number of hotels in Manchester.
In order to do my job properly, I need to do things:
- Keep abreast of what’s going on in the city both via the web and personal visits.
- Take my camera out and capture the sights and delights of this wonderful city so that my clients have always got unique, 100 original images to use with their content.
So I had a lot of fun earlier this month photographing Manchester from all its many weird and wonderful angles.
I’m still working on sorting through and editing those pictures, and I’ll have a Flickr album for you here in the near future, but for now here’s just a simple shot I took that I really rather like.
Enjoying the Freedom of Being a Non-Smoker
Towards the end of April, I celebrated seven months since I quit smoking.
To celebrate, I published two new articles/essays/thought pieces on Medium.com.
First up, I wrote this:
This is basically a first hand a count of my own personal battles with various forms of addiction, and the combination of physical and mental torment that comes from withdrawing.
Secondly, I wrote a quick piece about the surprising benefits of being a non-smoker. That one is called
Truthfully, it’s one of my favourite pieces simply because it makes me realise and appreciate how much better my life has become since I quit.
Nature’s Den Website Launched
On the work front, we finally launched the new website for my friends Ruth and Catherine at Nature’s Den.
Both do a wonderful job in engaging children in a natural, creative environment and celebrating the wonderful benefits of simply being outdoors in nature.
I’m proud that OneCo Creative could play even this small role in helping them to raise awareness of their work.
New Retro Pro Wrestling Launches New Facebook Page
After growing steadily in popularity over the past year, RPW finally has its own Facebook page where I’ll be sharing all the usual content from the website itself, plus lots of other old school wrestling geeky goodness.
Except to see my recent review of WWF Summerslam 1996 up there, along with a look back at In Your House: International Incident from July of that year.
That’s all for this month.
