The Windy Selling Stolen Bike

with a Thursday off in January, it was time for that monthly visit, this time I did have to sell something which wasn't important or too expensive but still something of some value. Then it the stress of the bike being stolen just as I get to pick it up to cycle back :@. The vlog is below

Inset vlog here

After the memories coming out on Monday, it was nearing a pretty normal week I work which allowed me to get done what was needed and also long home visit with bt Home Hub 2 routers stopped working in three different places in this week. that and I had to order the HDMI to VGA adaptor which wasn't too expensive either at £12.  but today I decided to finally rid myself of some DJ decks I paid £70 used for, they were lovely but for me, I didn't have time to use them anymore and getting some extra money for them is a nice send off. Also my dad was nagging about my diet which ok isn't perfect but it's not like I'm doing nothing all day .

The morning 

I woke up after fapping as usual and got a hot shower in, with the hot chocolate shower gel and the head and shoulders, it refreshed me he getting up and then email checking and the like before getting the bike out and the long ride began,

Passing into redrow

The trail, also the part me and rosie walked to from grnofen earlier this week

As I left it was a windy day with them pushing me back at certain parts of the journey along with the traffic being Cal until plymouth which the real nightmares began.

The cruising on the road

As I was passing to derriford, which has had roadworks delayed by WWII grenades, I had to cross roads and then stick to the left all the time, easier but more risky, but I got into the flyer for the first time which felt so much easier and luckily the traffic was not that bad on it until outland road had major roadwork chaos to deal with. But that passed. Eventually after 1 hour 44 minutes, i was by drakes Circus

The bike in the final moments

The visit

I got in and went to Drakes circus for a pee then primark to see how the cheap jean offers were which there were some good one that I could cut to size for £5.00. I saw jeorgia as I walked in, she did smile a smirk at me before the jeans were tempting them I left. As I walked out, my goal was to CEX first to see how much that deck was worth, which i went in and hardly queues for the first time and the rep served me and quoted me £38 cash or £54 CEX credit, which i said I'll have a think, but went to wants afterwards, I went in there and asked, he quoted the same so I went to home and after usual checks, i get paid £38 cash for it and left.

The it as the usual wader around i shops , Sony, markets, nerdz, bright House, cash converters, maplin, hmv, game. There were aplenty. Then it was poundland which has it £0.50 sale and that was slightly tempting but I will be back there. Same with poundworld, which had the same offers.

The views of Town
Then it was into apple, which browsing was nice and the rep tried to help me buy a macbook for £1,000 since it's £100 off (10%). Again that would be tempting but way much for me to justify. So I left and made my way to the hoe.

As I was running to my usual spot, I saw some old customers of mine and waved, then the wind was strong up there, so it was a gentle walk down, passing construction of the union bistro and then to the Rock. I vlogged and typed up for half hour or so before leaving when there were this couple doing a photo shoot so I glared at that normal page 3 style beauty but didn't get any 😍 out of it. The wind was no chill of the nice kind at this point

Lovely Stormy views from the wind

A selfie

The waves were strong

A photoshoot was happening just as i left

Then I walked my way to town to get the cables, I looked in the first poundland by the POWWOWTV and didn't buy from there due to the queues. So I went to the second poundland and that had the cables I needed and also I bought some aloe vera juice and chicken soup which was £0.50 each. £4 the cost came to in the end.

The items for £4

Then it was time to head home but I Looked in Game and HMV one last time before walking to the bike and ......IT was gone. Well fuck me that was a not good moment, I was calm about it but still it's not ideal. So I walked up to the police station opposite Starbucks.

The Bike has gone....

I got there and waited and after 5 minutes, a lady appeared, she asked how can I help and I reported the bike, some guys came in and she thought they were with me and got asked in then she said for me to pop in and I did and then we went through the form, it's mostly been described except the serial number i never got was asked which means I had to call the place I got it from, which they were closed anyway. But I eventually got the reference number and left. I went and checked the bike park out before giving Dartmoor Cycles a call which was unavailable. "You cannot leave a message" as i called them via FreedomPop which worked fine

The park and the bikes were still gone

Then I pelted it to get the bus and just as I was getting to Mutley, I saw it, the number 1 and ran like a bolt and luckily there was busy traffic and red lights which delayed him and got me on the bus. Paying £4.80 for a single and then typing this up, it made things seem better but I know that bike has been nothing but problems from punctures on the way to an exam, lights breaking to chains dying so maybe this was the sign that it was not the bike for me.

The traffic was busy, but by 17:30, the traffic was back to normal and I was on the way home. I got off by lidl and then decided to vlog it a day and then check if Dartmoor Cycles was open but knowing the time, i was too late. Or so i Thought, it turns out, they were open until 6:30 and I asked but they had to delete old records which means they don't have the Serial Number. So it might be the end of it. I told my parents and they were feeling the same as me,"its gone now and nothing can be done about it, you won't get it back".

Well that's that then, another day and this year has a bad taste to January, but let's see what happens and hope for luck

A Tranquil Dogwalk + Catch Up

With this year going off to a quiet start, also memories of love from the past sometimes reappear and this can give ideas but also give heartbreak and that feeling inside. But this also is a catch up to see the january summary and all that rubbish. From the hype on twitter which I'll explain soon to the pre order of KH 2.8 which is quick. You'll see more. The vlog is below:

So, Whats new. 

To be fair, I usually say nothing much and part of that is True. Sure I have made some new videos and also had mini events and all inbetween coping with Rosie and the Family and of course Work using most of my brain power and skills. We start off though with the 10th, which I was working as usual then when I got home, I noticed 90 followers at least overnight and a heck of a load of mentions, RTs and of course there has to be some banter from randomers in there, which meants I think the food pics went slightly viral.

This was a shock since for the next 10 days, the hype was building and more followers an things almost everyday. Which even a girl I liked who i swiped right on Tinder started posting pics (of course to say how ugh it was but it still makes you think that it does last an impression, sure Leah won't want to date me but we've chatted and gotten along slightly ok. But the stats when you see them are insane, like 1,000% + increase in one of the stats and 2 pictures giving 50K impressions each and Scouse ma (some parody account) even whining about, at one point mentioning Jamie Oliver but that was just parody so nothing happened. It also shows the issues with the Camera's flash on the ulefone paris.

The twitter stats for the past 2 months

Danielle went like "OH yes, mattie got out, about time" even though she looks pretty sensational recently, some others locally were joking about it and I even got into a whatsapp group until it turned to footy chat so I left. That and I did a catch up video to mention this while walking home from work 10 days ago.

Then it was finally time to get the PS4 going which was a nice tutorial which okay, some reddit comment did mention the carpet was a bad idea but this was no way permanently going to be there. Also being nagged about 2FA when most people forget passwords is also annoying.

Then it was getting to the stage of Reviewing the Nemesis Akuma. Which I've learned its actually a pretty powerful headset. So kudos for me buying it and also selling it in work a few times.

It really paced a punch and also its perfect timing since hopefully my Pre order of KH 2.8 should of arrived from Gameseek for £36 ish including faster delivery which was £1.99 on top. That will be my life for a few months in between getting vlogs up. Also work has been busy with refund's and RIDs and more hinges and hard.

*Note this blogpost was delayed and finished so the copy arrived.

The Tranquil Dogwalk.

With these events happening. I think it was time to get the Dogwalked a long way, with going to a place to just shout to myself and also vlog about it, since it really did make me feel down in the dumps. But I left at 11ish and then it was making the walk, with a mix of Sun and some Wind and there was chill. But Rosie and me did not worry, as I ranted to myself about plans. Then I got to the moors and the sun was bright and the Sky was clear and it felt like a April day.

Those views

More views. 
Then I walked and Played ball with Rosie, well after having a vlog and seeing horses and sheep together. But then we walked up the hill since Rosie was playing and moving the ball far too down .But then we passed a truck which was doing some fencing to put up by the hedge. Passing that and it was ball playing time, which was glaring fun and games until a pack of dogwalkers comes to intrude Rosie and one little terrier decides to attack that ball loving dog o mine. Which then it was time to go a different path, one which was a Gate leading to a lane which actually went to Grenofen. Partway along, a horse startled rosie when she was running off into fields and shouting ball was my way to get her to stay on the lane. But then it was lead time as I headed to the crossroads and then it was time to walk down along the road.

Hedges getting in the way. 
As we walked down the Road, we noticed a dog just on the road, staring at us then walked into a field to the right then we got walking and as I was passing another house right on the roadside, a cute husky style dog was walking past us, Rosie sniffed and it did to, being graceful and I was telling Rosie how nice she walked and well that didn't go down too well. 

This is what happens when Rosie doesn't want to be fair with me.

Then we carried on, we were reaching the junction which heads down to the woods where the path to Gem bridge is and also where you can walk to doublewaters. But for now we can just get to the main road which then leads us to a cafe. This cafe which also has a path to the cycle patch which makes this a complete circuit and also a nearly knackering journey, Drake's Cafe did have a fair amount of crowds but we actually walked onto the Path. 

The a386, the road to the city of the ocean

Passing the pink Drake's Cafe
As we walked down, Rosie wanted to play ball so we did for a fair whack of the path, with a cute puppy sniffing rosie and the older mother greeting rosie as well, she was not stressed out at all by them, which makes a change since Rosie gets her back up pretty quickly. 

Down the Path

Eventually, Rosie walked with me (and bit my foot again) after she decided to be nice and we walked on home, with the chill dying down, the legs getting tired and the mind reflecting on the memories that it had to forget about since they meant nothing anymore. But it was soon home and we did the 5 mile + walk in just over 3 hours. 

The distance

The final bit and timing

And there goes another day, which this month still maybe has surprises up its sleeve but maybe its just me working like mad to keep up with demand. Now with 2.8 in my hands I know my nights will be sleepless and really weary but oh well, its getting those Goals done.

A Widemouth First day on the beach

It was the first Monday off f 2017. The catching up of 2016 was done except backing up laptop for vlogs this year. But leaving at around 11:00 Me, Rosie and mum and dad were heading off to a beach. Which after fuel top ups and Reddit comments, we eventually got to Widemouth Bay, with lovely sun, a busy car park and the tide was out. It only took us about an hour but we were finally walking around on the beach.

The beach in the sun

Views of the cliffs

We walked casually, Rosie had her tail wagging up and she was sniffing the sights. The fresh air was there, the wind wasn't that strong and Rosie was having dogs running around her and she had her tail up and it was just those scenic days really. Some dogs did bash into her but excitement to be had with her first time. We went up to the tide and it was a way of making her jump, she was and is afraid of the water, She never wanted to go back to it but didn't mind the shallows. Which the views were stunning.

Bless her, waiting for the balls to play

But eventually it was time to get a lunch break, which there was a cafe along the beach which was busy and also nice and very modern as well, we sat down and ordered food. Me going for a pasty and chips (same as dad) Mum going for a Panamanian and Rosie having bits we feed her :).

The view from the Cafe

The cafe itself

The pasty, chips, beans and mango juice

Then it was resting after eating that for 10 minutes until we decicded to go for a longer walk down the beach. While this was happening, we saw our neighbour who just arrived and we chatted to him for 10 minutes or so before we carried on our walk. With the ball being lost at times and the wind slightly stronger. The dog was enjoying herself and ignored other dogs approaching her. 

Views looking north

The rockpools in the glare
 We were walking for an hour before we finally made our way back. The sun was bright and near the Reel cinema, there was a smashed up van which was a 3 car pileup and cop and ambulances too.
Then it was finally home and we relaxed as I typed up the blogpost for the resolutions..

Thats a nice quiet start which events like this might happen, it might delay me with getting videos up But i will see what I can do.

The 2017 Resolutions.

Well, finally we are into 2017, which for me has been veyr productive minus last night to catch up on Sleep. Since that Music video took me about 14 hours straight (minus toilet bnreaks but NO SLEEP) and also this was a nice roast to head 2017 which I couldn't taste.

The 2016 Facts and Goals. 

Well this past year has been up and down (mostly flat due to working) and there have been some achievements and some fails with everything. Well lets find out the details

  • Starting Weight (Feb 2016) = 185.6
  • Ending Weight  (Dec 2016)  = 193.6
  • Current Tinder Matches as of NYE = 25
  • People that have actually messaged back on Tinder (exc bots)  = 8
  • Total Wooplus Matches = 8
  • Total that actually messages back on Wooplus  = 4
  • Messages to/from girls on Feabie = 25
  • Total Money Spent on Girls  = £334.16
  • Money Spent on Takeouts on Girls = £235.18
  • Total  Overcharged by FreedomPop = £14.88
The Goals for last year, Did i complete any ? Lets Find out:

  • Try not to fap on mornings when i have work - FAILED, it was still a nightmare, but i've set my alarm earlier to make it easier to fap.
  • Try to have a Holiday or have a week off from work without being called up at least for one day of it - FAILED, I worked as normal but I did have 1 extra day off (3 days working instead of 4) last week for the first time in a few years
  • Try to meet up with a girl from Feabie - FAILED, its these meets wayy far away.
  • Plan a few days out  - FAILED
  • Tweet More - PASSED
  • Snapchat more  - PASSED
  • Get into my first Relationship - FAILED
  • Cook for a Group of Girls - FAILED
  • Make some music Mashups -FAILED
  • Play some more Steam Games and Finish at least 2 - PASSED. 

This means that I failed most which is ok, some I abandoned which is my own fault. but like most NY resolutions, people forget they happen after a fair while, Which means its time for new goals. 

The 2017 Resolutions. 

We will carry on with some but new goals will happen.

  • Get into my first relationship with a girl.
  • Try to meet up with a girl from Feabie
  • Visit Bristol by myself for a day or overnight - Falcon Bus from Plymouth
  • Finish at least 2 Games on PS4 - KH 2.8 and N.Sane Trilogy (*Both TBC)
  • Stream More 
  • Get videos and blogposts done quicker 
  • Have at least 2 myself days out for vlogs that are further away from Plymouth 

These are my way of starting the new year with goals in mind and to see where my life is going as well as to make more videos and boost that youtube life of mine along with Working being a demanding time. 

But for now lets see how this progresses, there is also a Day out on the first few days of 2017 which means there might be a new hope yet.
