Hello all and welcome to the weekly update for the week 25/9/17!
This week is going to be a funny one. Not a 'ha-ha' funny, but weird and unusual. Today marked the beginning of my 'Seven Days of Spontaneity', which is where I get up every morning and go somewhere in Adelaide, journaling what I'm doing and putting it on my social media as part of my professional writing course. The whole idea of my project is to prove that there is something do to in Adelaide (although many might think otherwise). Anyway, this also means I don't have as much time as I want to be working on content on the website. So, depending on how everything goes away from here, it might result in some interesting blog posts about what I'm doing since I'm trying to relate it all to some form of storytelling.
What did I do today then? Today was a cultural expedition through the state library, museum, art gallery and botanic gardens. It highlighted the easy access to four amazing locations all on the same street in the city. I have been to all four before and yet it still took the whole day to get through all of them, which shows how much is packed in each. However, at the end of the journey when I reached the botanic gardens I found a spot underneath a tree to read, which resulted in me taking out my notebook and writing with ease what I saw around me. The love for stories and writing can be ignited wherever you are, so take every opportunity to let it happen!
Anyway, let's get into this update!
Sometime this week (probably Wednesday), the review for The Two Towers, the second instalment to J R R Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, should be available. I promised last week it would be posted sometime this week, and I will keep that promise. However, I can't give an exact day as it depends on what I'm doing each day this week. Make sure to keep an eye out for it!
I'm still deciding on whether I'll post anything on the blog about what I'm doing this week. I think it might be interesting if I delved into the stories I find along the way but I also don't want this blog to become a jumble of different topics and themes. One idea that seems like the best to do would be to put up a summary of what has been happening on Thursday since that is right in the middle of the seven days. Again, we shall see. I don't want to be putting something up 'just because'. If you want to see something on what I'm doing this week on the blog, let me know! We'll see what happens.
Maybe? It depends on whether I do put anything up on the blog this week (excluding this update and the wrap-up).

Achievements for the week
My main goal this week is to be able to prove that there are many things to do in Adelaide through my 'Seven Days of Spontaneity' project. If you're interested in keeping updated on that everyday, check out my personal social media that can be found here. Aside from that, I have been trying to get up earlier to fit more into my days. This also means exercising early in the morning. Hopefully I can keep this up!
And that's it for this update! As I mentioned earlier, I found inspiration to write down the beauty I saw around me today. This action left me feeling amazing, and I cannot say enough how important it is to let yourself grasp onto any inspiration that you may experience. Let the story be ignited within you!
