What are three things you can't do without and why?

Ok, I told the class this needed to be things; not people or pets. Very similar to the previous journal about being evacuated and what you would take with you.

Here are the top three things I couldn't do without:


  1. My Garmin. I love using this to help me train. It tracks my workouts, monitors whether I am training too much, and motivates me to train more effectively.
  2. My phone. OK, hardly a phone anymore seeing as I very, very rarely speak to anyone on it. I use it to message friends to organise runs. I keep in contact with friends and family back home in Australia. I check my emails, watch YouTube, Netflix, play word games, take photos, look at photos, look up words, research, use maps....the list is potentially endless. How did I survive without it???
  3. Coffee!!! Coffee is an amazing product. It wakes me up before a run, it keeps me awake during the day, it fills me up when I'm hungry, it's a social pretext (let's meet for a coffee!), and more!

Of course, I would survive without these three things, however, life is nicer with them. And believe me, I'm much nicer with them; especially coffee!!!!! :)
