What I'm Doing Now

This is a now page, inspired by Derek Sivers, and if you have your own site, you should make one too.

I’m still working at FanDuel, recently promoted to a more senior role. It’s stressful at times, and there are a lot of things I don’t like, but still the best job I’ve ever had at this point. It’s not looking like it’ll slow down any time soon, but as long as I’m still enjoying it I don’t mind being busy.


We’ve adopted a third dog! A wee five-year-old Bedlington Terrier called Harry. He’s a sweet little boy, and Charlie and Sid get on with him great.

Also, Danny and I are in the middle of planning our wedding for June 2022. Which is really not that far away. Save-the-dates should be going out later this month, although we’ve still not really finalised the guest list yet. I’m also in the middle of designing the website for us, which I really need to get moving on. And to complicate the timeline even further, I’m currently in the process of selling my flat (which I talked about on my blog a little while back) and buying a new place in the city centre. Excited about it, but it’ll be a strain financially until Danny and I move out of our current place, so the next few months are a little uncertain. All leading to a good place though!


I’m (finally) back to sub-20 in the 5k, and in a decent spell of consistent running just now (45-55km per week). Targeting a new personal best in the 5k in the next few months, and after that I’ll decide on the rest of my running year.

Currently reading The Almost Nearly Perfect People by Michael Booth, which will be my first book of 2021. Aiming to read 25 this year, which is a fairly modest target, but would be the most I’ve read in a year since I was in school.

Finally, I realised this year that I’ve basically stopped listening to podcasts since the first lockdown in March (except for Hey Riddle Riddle and Clue Crew), as I mainly listened to them on my commute to and from the office. I’m not sure if I even really miss them. I may try some bone conduction headphones and listen to them on a run, but I don’t really like listening to anything while I run, I prefer to be “in the moment” (without sounding too much like a pretentious bellend).
