Shut Up and Drive

So, I broke up with blogging for a month or so because I was feeling stifled. As you all know, I have been promoting my book, "stuck.at.seven [while awkwardly aiming for ten]"and it's really hard. You sift through pages and pages of potential contacts, reach out to people and nada. No response - nothing! So, it can be a bit hum-drum after a while, but I am back. Kind of. Sort of. Maybe.

In other news though, last weekend I decided to make a trek up to Newcastle. About 2-3 hours north of Sydney, it was a welcomed break from the hustle and bustle of the city and I needed to see something new. More so, I needed to drive. For almost 5 years now, I have been car-less. For many reasons, that's a good thing. Firstly, the environment - secondly, the cost and expense - and third, drunk stumbling home is much more fun than being stupid behind a wheel. 

Anyways, driving on the opposite side of the road is hard. And, really effin' scary. I have done it before but I don't do it often and being stuck in the middle of Sydney traffic with cars whizzing all around was a bit too much. Per usual, I did request for Jesus to take the wheel but He did not conjure up quick enough and I had to bob and weave my way back home through a sea of middle fingers and people screaming the C-word at me through their windows. 

During my time in Newcastle, I stumbled upon a massive beach full of sand dunes and decided to do a little sand boarding because I am such a fit, active, sporty kind of person. In reality, I was choking on sand and moments away from an asthma-induced airlift. Fortunately for me (and you), I edited the end of the video above where things get extra bouncy and my usually under wraps man boobs get a little extra camera time. 

So, that's that.  I had a mini-escape and that was that.  Now, I need to plan my next adventure (possibly to a gym to lose the teats) and see where I go. And, if you are one of the over 35 million people who have yet to read my book, please check it out here! Or, go and leave on a review on Amazon - your support is appreciated!
