Happy February and welcome to the 18th issue of ‘How Curious!’ ✌️
This past month I’ve been making short hops between Cork, Galway, Dublin & London. Packing and moving apartments twice in a month is a little tedious at the time but great for decluttering! Applying a one-in-one-out policy for my possessions helps with this. 🎒✈️
I’ve gotten into decent healthy habits this year and once again jump on any opportunity for novel experiences. Highlights of the month include doing jury duty in the amazing Witness for the Prosecution play and joining a non-fiction book club. ⚖️📚

Last month I learned

  • Moët is pronounced ‘mo-wett’ not 'mo-way’ due to the founder’s Dutch heritage. Still think you’re fancy!? 🍾😅
  • Annual salary = (Hourly rate X 2 ) & add three zeros, or Hourly rate = (Annual salary / 2) & drop the three zeros 💸
  • If you improve by 1% every day, within a year you’ll be 37X better! 📈
