A Vote and a Cycle

Today is the day, the day the UK decides to change its life or not, Which we did and we are on our way to being out of the EU within 2 years time.  With everything going on and also its my day off on a sunny but cloudy day, I decide to cycle into plymouth. The vlog is below:

Its been very quiet for me along with working and playing on the steambox, i'm now a proud owner of rocket league and Pacman 256 along with still deciding on things to set up on streaming. But I've also been trying things out, like trying to sellotape my thighs to help squeeze them into jeans a bit more, it wasn't as uncomfortable as it would be but i didn't use a big enough amount of tape anyway.

Also its been picking up in work until this early week but now its picked up again, and the last month of windows 10 for free is starting and people are downgrading, which is a shame but its their choice and for up to £60 I help them downgrade via work.

But we come to this sunny day. Waking up and checking the internets from 7:10 to 7:45 before a daily 💦 to live the dreams I want to or fantasies more like. But then I was up by 8:35 and getting glass and phone charged. Getting this started and prepping for the day. All in all, I was leaving by 9:20. The polling station was my first bet.

Churches as a Polling Station

That was a smooth 15 minutes before cycling off to that ocean city which was actually first to the hoe for a home visit. there were a small flow of people in the polling station and within that 15 minutes, I voted to leave the European union and then smiled as I left to cycle on. This journey made me feel light, I was going at a reasonable pace and even with the longer distance, I actually got to drakes circus in 1 hour and 38 minutes

Getting to town

The phone n the case

Now when I got there, I decided to get a quick toilet session done, I tried that free phone charger while I was in there and by the time I finished up and picked up, only 1% extra battery (from 69 to 70 %) and then I went to Three to ask if there have been problems with tinder on cellular, since it never works on mobile data, only wifi and they were pretty much, just call the support to see what's happening, which technically means I have to call FreedomPop which might be tricky. But then I ran down to the hoe and arrived at the place I needed to be for the visit. this was at 1:20pm

The view of the hoe and getting to where i needed to be

Now I got there and this nice elderly lady was sitting out by this car, we greeted and I mentioned the visit and she was pretty much "I don't know this building had 15 flats and I live at number 1 and I can't let you in and the flat calling system might not work due to a power cut yesterday." So with that I pressed the buzzer various times and Then hopefully I would help this customer out, but there was a chance it would not be worth it. By 12:45 I was wondering my way back to town and getting to go shopping. I talked about the selotaping my thighs and the casual day. but as i was walking, I was getting lost in alleyways and even passing the radio plymouth building, I got to behind gala and into town within 20 minutes.

Ah, town, the place of solidarity where shoppers alike get what they needs, there was a fair amount around and I browsed a few places. You know, Poundland, the Asia oriental, Sony store and of course drakes circus.But it was the first lot which was fun. with remaining campaigners walking around, I got into poundworld and browsed, there wasn't much enticing except ice vimto triangles and butter list microwave popcorn and maybe earphones. but they didn't look ideal so I skipped it and walked out.

Then on the way. I was enticed by a oxfam rep named Maggie. She was quite a nice size. So she asked me my age, name, job, and if I pay income tax and she was a bit taken back when I explained the situation. But hey, that's life.Looking in maplin was nice but there were these headphones which looked like a special offer for £4.99, it turns out it was £37.99 which then me and the sales rep realises that the item was switched. But the clearance, there were some good items. Like the G3258 bundle for £154.99 and the raspberry pi 2 for £39.99. But then I left and headed up to primark

Now this was fun since I saw the first girl I ever kissed with her boyfriend which the rumour mill told me she's married. But she didn't see me but I was looking for briefs, I went for xl which is ideal for fapping since it's recently been a really high drive thanks for feabie and some of the adventures of a girl I follow on there and now Instagram along with some others. But that was 4.50 and then it was some socks, a pack of 5 for 2.50 and a £7 total. Now while I was queueing up, there was this amazing girl in front of me, looking soft, wide and had a nice accent when talking to her mate. I was like dazed and "she's a 8" in my mind. But then it was all paid for and added to the bag.

The socks and pants 

Then as I was passing the krispy kremes, there was a even more amazing girl, yes she had a kid but she was like feabie dream in legging and arms were just 😍.The apple store was nice, it turns out the Mac books that had the Intel core m that the onda used has m3 variant and I showed the sales rep the apple refurbed now for £759. Then I left.Then browsing game and cex again, more CPU and graphics card deals. Then there was more deals in wants with a 1tb Hitachi hard drive, for £24.95. there was a guy casually chatting to the sales rep. Cash converters had some deals, like Xbox one's for 190 with forza 5 and a £175 Dell All in one. But there were HDMI freebies boxes for cheap. But I left.

The exploring contiunes until I saw Pete, which we then caught up. He mentioned There was a holiday he was on which he mentioned Swaggys might do a BBQ but with his new Libby, I mentioned he might bottle that and go down hers. Pete said I was making obsracles that never existed, but there were valid point. But I mentioned there might be the documentary in mid July , which his eyes opened up widely in excitement. But then we parted ways and I went around town again to explore.

But then it was poudland and my £5 note was going to be useful, so I bought 6 things for £5. 28 ice lollies for £2, 2 bottles of aloe Vera juice for £1, 2 rolls of selotape for £1 and some cheap £1 earphones to use in bed which proper ones are too uncomfortable with.

The bundle for Pound

Then there was one last buy, Krispy Kreme, now I've not bought from them for nearly 6 months and since a recent feedee from London posted a pic of her buying 2 dozen boxes of them in feabie, it made me crave them so I bought it for £9.45 on my card and i wasn't ready for the nutella ones since I said to myself, if I get a girlfriend, I will buy those. So this new flavour rhwy advertised I might however have which is nightmarish.

The box of Glazed dreamy doughnuts

Now there was time to head off home, so by 3:50 I was set up on GPS and making that steep hills home. Passing cuba and bang bang being either torn down or refurbished was a sight too see, especially since of the first kiss in my life with Hannah and also seeing Charlotte and meg a while  back there. The sweat was not as bad this time to begin the journey but it was blinding just as i got home. But the legs were in strain pain which made me get home in just over 2 hours but before 2 hours 1 minute.

Now just as I get home and make a nice ice cold drink, I found out I'm off to The queens head to have tea after my mum was picked up from slimming world and the rest of the family had voted. Which that went pretty badly since I was wanting to get this up ASAP without doing and all nighter. But after some jokes and chatter and cat videos on Facebook, it turned out ok.  I ended up having a BBQ dog which was me since the sausage was the same looking as tinned ones or the ones people puke on when eating in oceana. But the pint of lime and lemonade was nice

And there we have it, I had taken part in one of the most important days in my life as well as do shopping while the home visit was a wasted attempt, but I know blogging and vlogging will be busy be t month so keep and eye out for that.

A (non) Royal Afternoon tea

Well, this was a unexpected family event, it sounds posh, it looked posh but it wasn't posh. Bascially with the queen's 90th Birthday in place and a farther's day tea voucher my Grandad had to use before Farther's Day next week. It was a afternoon tea at a very fancy Hotel called the Bedford. The bedford is popular but way above my spending life. But it was time to try something different.

A mention before we start

Now recently, this past week in work has been quiet but also its been something that has reminded me of some things i need to get done or choices. Especially with one of my neighbours now moving to the other end of the building my work is in, while the first neighbour expands to the other side. I'm not moving or we aren't closing. Anyways this past week or 2 has been interesting with customers talking about various bits, more range of different ones. But one regular i'm friends with mentioned about Monoduality, which is one of those spiritual awareness of things just happening and when we question whats actually US and there have been connections to LSD being a realisation to that. But he explained a story which was related to one of his friends just casually putting Vaseline on his D since it eased the pain after he had a vasectomy, then he was a bit taken back when my friend has to clear the line saying he wasn't interested attractive wise, but it was the concept that everyone and everything around you is "happening". Which after he left, i ended up having a walk outside and a headache. 

Then it comes to Saturday which was a normal day, quiet, but my neighbour suddenly thought about this book which was useful for me and my colleague (he'll see it on Wednesday) but it was about change and what to do with change. He mentioned a story:

There was a young man that walked up a cliff one evening, he went to a bench, this older man that looked similar to him was sitting down, they both greeted each other. The older one said "walk to the edge", so the young man did, then he said "walk off" "no, i''m scared" "walk off, walk off, WALK OFF". So the young man walked off the edge of the cliff and he flew away. 

But then he gave me this book to read which was about an hour which was called "Who Moved my cheese", which was a story about change and the 4 aspects of yourself which can influence change. That was an interesting hour of reading and also made me realise I need to start sorting out the skills a love life needs, which sadly not everyone picks up naturally and waiting isn't that answer.

The afternoon tea

So, with me finding out this was happening, I was prepping up in the early afternoon since in the morning was struggling with a code 10 on a dynamode WL-700N-RXS. But it was nearing 1pm and then it was a nice shower which i tested that selfie remote from a pound shop. Useful for snapchat shower selfies. But then it was 1:20 and it was time to pick my granparents up. Me my sis and mum, (my dad had a nasty flu so it was a stay home for him). They were chatting while i was organising pics on my phone.

Later on  in a short time, we got to nans. We were greeted by a man in a suit and a tie, bless my grandad, he does make an effort for occasions. But we greeted and I walked some plant pots into the dining room and got his phone ready for him then my mum helped nan out to the car, locking the dorr behind them, my sister gets the car closer to the pavement. Nan gets in the front, then me, grandad and mum shuffle into the back and we drive off.

The talk of the car was all about the queen's 90th and the memories it had bought back to here, from the time she was allowed time off work in the General Mills factory to see the train pass from london up north with the coffin of King George V (the previous queen before the current Queen Elizabeth II) and many other stories.

But as we got close to home, my nan compared, aka "thought" of me when she listened to an interview Prince Harry was in about relationships and said something along the lines of "i'm waiting for the right one". Then my nan said i should wait and eventually it will just happen with the right person, Which of course from past experience, this was complete bullshit. Then she said about people settling down at the right time and I mentioned about people moving in after less than a year of dating (there are 2 examples, one i have on snapchat) which was a bit grinding. Soon, we were parked and ready to enjoy this posh place I run past a few times and even saved a wedding there once by lending a netbook to them to show a powerpoint at a reception many years ago on a saturday in the old shop.

Parking and walking our way in there

We got there and it was posh, although the lift didn't work (not for me, these stairs were easy). we all go to the waiting room, which actually was nice, comfy mansion style chairs which we were going to have the afternoon tea at. We then made our order and relaxed while using phones and chatting. But there was a drink beforehand.

The pint of lime and lemonade

Yes this was happening. I even did my first faceswap on my sisters snapchat (i don't have her on there before anyone asks, nor any other social media). But shortly after that there was the time of getting the stack here and it was quite sophisticated and packed full of natural food. Sandwiches, chocolate brownies, scones, carrot cake, tirimasu, even lettuce. But sadly the sandwiches have butter so my lunch (i only had a ham onion chili bap for breakfast) was the deserts, they were very nice to be fair.

The stack with all the food we could eat

I had:
  • Lettuce
  • A Scone with Jame
  • vegetable crisps
  • carrot cake
  • Chocolate Brownie.
They were very tasty to say the least, the scone was crumbly yet soft tasting, the jam complemented it as well. Then you have the lettuce which was moist, the flavour of the crisps was a nice addon. The brownie though was insane, so thick yes so soft (like a belly on a 20+ stone girl). But the carrot cake was nice but the sultanas or rasins aren't that great. 

The meal

We ate and I mostly listened into gossip while some young girls (mid 20s) were chatting and having their afternoon tea to the left of where i was, but i relaxed and it was a chill for a hour or so until about 3:40 which we then made our way back, But we met the chef, Raul which was a nice lad, he is pretty experienced. 

Then me and my sister walked to the car park and some guest were going to the lift and I said "the lifts don't work and they aren't supposed to be for luggage" the guests were a bit taken back but it was written on the door for the lift, so they dragged the suitcases up the stairs. Me and sis were in the car, we drove and had to turn at the roundabout to then park outside the front. Then we drove home, I got out and got home to get Rosie walked and that was that..

It was just a short one but filler means big things soon.

A atomic Transition to a New month (May 2016 Catchup)

Another month has passed and things have been picking up in terms of vlogs, events, work and even styling. Even though the love life is nearly dead and missing thoughts are still lurking in the heart and mind with nothing I can do anymore to make them come true. There has also been some reviewing, BBQs and building along the way.

The Highlights

Well there was the missed oppoturnity of a night out on the Bank Holiday weekend (the 1st one in May) which was fine since I was close to saving up other projects which I actually did later on. 
But the 1st event was actually a possible changer to a night out. USB LED Trainers, Yes these exist and they actually do what I wanted them to. 

Those I'm hoping you will see in the vlogs in the fare and near future, which you actually do anyway.

Next you've got the 1st project I've been planning for a while, a SteamBox/HTPC which actually did make a nice bit of a baseline for making me catch up with that PC MasterRace life but at a budget. Although the past catches up with me when getting it built due to Bent CPU Pins but a RMA actually sorted it out and Windows 10 was installed and ready to go.

The PC all lit up

the omracer BIOS LOGO is awesome I think
There was also a time of Vimto reviews but that was a meh thing. But flirting with a foodee blogger who thinks shes a ssbbw when shes smaller than me is quite fun to flirt with too

Since next was the first event these shoes were going to have and they were pretty effective. With the House's area starting to change and new houses for BBQs, this was the start of a different way of meetups, but by god, those shoes were pretty good.

just them in action
Which in between this and the next BBQ, was work and also playing Galaga Legions DX on PS3 and trying that new capture box I bought in april out, which works quite nicely.

But with the weather starting to pick up nicely, Another BBQ was on the cards, which was actually a bit of a changing port for things like how I tweet pictures and whether I decided to go on a big trip this month which I might actually do but it might cost me £220 for that lesson with Kian to make sure i'm ready for the opposite sex intimacy again or I go for Gracie and actually expirenece what another date and also see if she can teach me spooning a actual girl instead of me attempting to with pillows.

Between this, I also reviewed a new tablet which actually is a pretty poor one with crashes and not as fast as the v820w.

This also made me hope that soon I would be able to get night out vlogs done, but sadly things changed with that realisation that I'm working or was at least supposed to work that last weekend of may bank holiday. But a trip to a new quiet peaceful place was first.

We traveled to mount edgcumbe which was on a incredible day and also it was nice to get  glass out to take pics and also enjoy a mini picnic for £3. Which that was a massive 5 hours of exercise and I didn't even bring the coffin which was a pisstake

Then we finally come to last weekend, a weekend I was supposed to work but since the weather was hot and people I served was only one on that Sunday, it was a day off. But that Saturday night, I decided to accomplish things. First was a BBQ by myself, which thanks to neighbourly advice and a night to myself, I made my own which kind of worked minus intensely spice food and some reduced, but poorly cooked kebabs of the maple variety.

Then it was technically masking that PC build video and actually one importance which wax changing my hair. Using a similar product t I bought in July when I had that anxiety attack with the stripper from temptations after Sophie kissed her boyfriend right next to me when I drinking a limb  cordial, it was actually a better job that people did say it suited me. There was a ginger joke with the landlord but it's like living the dream in this new place I've worked for 7 months in now.

The Tinder Progress

Ah yes, Tinder, we have to talk about that app. And to be fair, its mostly been bots this past month. This is a bit of a shame but there was recently some improvements. Ok a 17 year old was asking for my nudes on there and then there was a girl from Redruth that I started chatting to but that faded quickly, then there was Zoe who liked my messages (afternoon and how are you) so that was a no luck situation. But for people that care or what not. Which was when I started Tinder late last year/Early this year, I post my matches and messages on snapchat so you do get to see them. 

  • Total Matches: 23
    • Bots: 7
    • Real People:11
    • People that haven't responded when I messaged them: 7
    • Replies: 4 

A recap on my Goals: 

This is looking to be a shambles but here is goes with the list: 

  • Try not to fap on mornings when i have work - Funny with this, I've abandoned this yet i'm in work earlier than I have been a few times recently, the bright weather helps. 
  • Try to have a Holiday or have a week off from work without being called up at least for one day of it - Now this might happen, basically i choose the date and hope colleague can cover, he said he can but nothing is ever as simple
  • Try to meet up with a girl from Feabie - This has gotten nowhere but this might change
  • Plan a few days out  - Planning might happen these next 2 months, especially with a documentary in July with Sandy
  • Tweet More - This is a bit weak
  • Snapchat more  - Getting better, did my first screenshot poll last night.
  • Get into my first Relationship - A major work in progress
  • Cook for a Group of Girls - Too late to bother
  • Make some music Mashups - Abandoned 
  • Play some more Steam Games and Finish at least 2 - The steambox is made, now I can start to do more steam lets plays, even though the games are under 30fps in some cases, it might change if i buy a GPU for it but I'm hoping to try it first. 

More events and vlogs to do in the near future.
