A Weekend of 2 halves

So, its January fading over and the Final weekend before the second month. In all honesty, its been a weak one with some good and some bad happening. But I'll let you know the full story in a catchup. But for now, it was one of those weekends where things happened and maybe it will lead to more fun but well will see.

A Spectra Saturday. 

Saturday, well things were actually swapped over, since the relocation is closed on Saturdays until some time in February and this meant I do get some sort of a long weekend now. But with the start of making the Collab with Team Spectra, things were going to go interestingly. But usually its a Sunday with hanging out and getting the stream done. So it was a day of streaming.

The morning. 

I woke up at 8:40 or so am. After the internet checking and it was time to get some Admin work and E-mails checked out Which then it was also the time to get packed up just in case i needed any editing to do with the team. But I got prepared with a Smoothie, berries in the fridge was a nice way of doing it and the 2 games ready to pack up. 

Rocket League, Berry Smoothie and PUBG
I then got ready after a shower and changing into the filming outfit which then I pelted it down in the not heavy but showing rain down to the Team location. 10 minutes later, I get in and then I find Torchy was asleep. With me creeping in but the door was loud, we greeted and chatted and he showed me the Blackwidow Chroma he got given by his fiance'. It felt amazing but also at the same time, it was just too good for me to want to buy. Considering they are nearly £150, that will be a pass on me. Heck, i can get in a similar performance PC to what i have for £155. But anyway, I helped him make his bed and then we got ready to go and pick up 2 members. Mr Flarry Ollo and also one member I've yet to meet, but we got in the car, Papa Johns was left in there from the night before. But we got in and then it was a drive to pick both up. We all chatted about different things, the stream, listened to som Youtube via the AUX Cable. We then got to pick Ollo up after staying in his driveway and calling him.

He got in and was astounded by the papa johns, but we got going and headed our way to pick the other member up. But we did head over to tesco to fuel up. Some banter was eunsuring. Also we tried to call the other team member, but it went a bit dead in that respect. We carried on to the member's place but even after calls, still no reply. Then we called Teetz and he was busy. So we headed back to the place to get the stream going. 

The Stream

We got back after dropping Flarry off to get some food bits in Pasty house and Co-Op
We got everything setup, so it was a case of a bit of Fortnite first and then Rocket League and then PUBG and back to fortnite. But all the banter ensured, this was about 5 hours long. Toilet breaks and phone calls with customers as well

Enjoy the stream below: 

The Setup for the Stream

Installing Rocket League

The Evening. 

Eventually it was 5:45 and we had been going for 5 hours, from snacks to banter and shocks alike, We pack up and since someone called me on Friday to book the evening, so I was to run to his, which with spitty rain aside, I visited him and gave him a lesson on his Moto G and then fun times with recovering his Google Account, which is another go. 

Heading out
Once that was done, it was time to head home, with the rain and the hills and more, it really made some good timing and greet my parents. So after catching up, I had some phone calls to deal with, but then I managed to have a nice roast turkey with extras too

Running up the steepest hill i've ever been up in Tavi

The Roast Turkey and extras for that night, including salad and biscuits. 

Then we finish off with relaxing and then on to the Sunday. With a family affair.

The Supporting Sunday. 

Well this was actually happening Due to on the 11th Jan, My granded went on a roof and fell off when tiling it back when one of the storms hit the town it was in. But since then, things went quite bad and panics ensured and some plans went out of the Window. Now we have to change some plans of ours to get family checked out. Things were going to eventually make things come to the point of I needed to see him, since I was busy on Sundays with the Spectra collab. But swapping it made the day free, so it was a day of it. 

The Morning. 

I eventually got up about 9am after the fap and the checking, but since snapchat is starting to play up on me, it does make some extra time for things. But once that was done, it was some checking e-mails as well as then to get a shower before a #dogwalkingwithomracer. That was fun with so many dogs around Rosie, but she took little notice of it.

Waiting for the ball
There was so much chatter with a chap that worked in Dubai and also had some really nice beagle that was a Rescue. But then a crossbreed king charles and poodle who was hype. Eventually it was half an hour later and we got back home again to get changed for the big meal. 

The Meal: 

So we drive out to get my Granddads Fiance's house, with the Road being surfaced, it was quite interesting with the arguments of if it had been resurfaced or not. But then it was more along the lines of when we got there, we greeted her, she kissed all of us on the cheek, it felt really forced and very one sided. But want to be family members have to be treated like family so...

But she wanted to know about the Collab (my family are not really understandable about being a Youtuber or streamer, so i had to make a lie or story about a project  which is aka the Spectra Collab)
But I said it was a secret and she will find out one day, even thought she doesn't even use the internet, not one bit. Anyways, we headed off  to her Favorite pub where a cornishman owns it and his sons now run it, but the food is nice there.

We parked in the Carpark opposite which it was dry but then we got in and sat in the corner. More chatter about work and other bitsor now, it was the owner having a chat and a nice glass of lime and . lemonade which had that onpoint to it. But then some friends of hers came in and she went up a and greeted them and then hugged him in front of his wife and said what had happened, it felt hmm. Okay it is a scary thought and emotional but it was a bit like how I used to be with my feelings when my heart was broken when falling in love with Abbey.

Eventually the food arrived and it was incredibly tasty, french apples in the apple sauce and the nice amount to eat as well.
The Roast Beef for lunch today

Eating was good and it was more chatter about things, brownie points for my uncle and more on the way. But then we felt full and it was time for the Puddings, and she was told to pay and besides, its food for favours, like how my sex life is currently going haha. But in all seriousness, the fair method was she pay one, we pay other and repeat. But Treacle puddings and Apple Pies were ordered, mine with nothing else with it. But minus the heat it produced, it was amazing.

The stick toffee pudding
Eventually it was time to finish up and we headed to the Hospital, not the big Derriford (which i might need to go to get one of those new years resolutions sorted) but to a local one to see how he is getting on, so we walked out of there and chatting. Got into the car and drove our way there. 

The Hosptial. 

It was actually simple when we got there after the usual car chats and the like. But we parked quite close and then walked in. We had to go down the stars to this ward and he was right by the ward by the desk, it did look like a theme hospital level (now with 2 point carrying that on, expect a video), but we then greeted him and saw a neighbor had visitors as well. He looked really normal, well, normal, healthy, the bruising was minimal on the higher up. But we then caught up and chatted about different topics, once I had the chairs in of course.

Entering the Hospital. 
It was about an hour and a half of catching up and there was moaning, gossip, even fixing a vacuum that tripped an electric switch twice and still told to KEEP IT. But eventually it was time to head back home, so we ended up going past my sister's place which was good since I needed to pick up Chromecast.

A quick sis catchup. 

So, we got to my sisters and greeted, she gave me some orange squash and also i chatted with her boyfriend and introduced him to fortnite, which we watched a stream on mixer on a basic internet connection. But eventually we said our goodbyes. It was getting colder outside as well. We got in the car and drove off into the fog and mist to drop my grandad's fiance back. 

The drop off.

It was finally time to get her home, we did and then we did some mini chores with her before saying our goodbyes and heading home. Which was dark and foggy and well once we got back, I started typing this up until tea was ready at 8pm, but chatting to this cute girl after which might bring some chances back up. That and it was one of those mixed light teas but was really tasty. 

The meal for tonight. 
But then it was typing this up after a bath. Before a morning of filming and ordering games for work. 

Enjoy and more blogposts coming soon.

The progression of life - 2018 Resolutions

We are finally in 2018, the year things change alot in some ways but in others, it feels the same as always. But as 2017 was behind us, I felt things had changed but also not much was accomplished. But enjoy anyway.

New Year's food filled eve

So, it was a wet NYE on the Sunday. With the new year coming up, My nan accidentally thought it was 2018 already, so we did visit her and have a nice meal too. But things were on my mind with finishing the Review of the Year 

After a busy wet day at work the Saturday, with having to pack everything up. But then it was a thought to be chilled day, but instead it was a nice time with the Family for the last day of 2017. So before that, it was a nice toasted sandwich and also #dogwalkingwithomracer. 

The brunch and smoothie

#dogwalkingwithomracer for the final time in 2017
The meal was nice, it felt like the  nice end to the year, there was some chatter and memories being told but it was going to be nice to relax.

The New years eve roast
After this, it was trying to setup hive with google home but i think his Hive Hub had failed on him. So it didn't end up ok, but then we all left just as the sun was setting. The moon was out anyway and it was then time to finish off the last month of the Review of the Year. 

The drive home

Then it was finally time for the last meal of the year, An Indian Takeout. Well this one with a mixed tandori, lamb balti and other bits, it really felt a nice end, though my parents didn't like it. Also with the stomach, the food was feeling straight through me.

The Rice and other fun in the Indian Takeout. 
But then it was time to watch a movie, from Finishing Assasins creed, to a short thing from New Years Eve and then it was Kingsman, which actually the sequel is pretty good. But then it was the last few minutes of 2017.

Ringing in the New Year.

As time was getting on, I got glass out and then charged it for the short while. But it was 5 min until and the BBC had a pretty meh concert, ITV was asking all about how hype this london display was going to be. But then it was the countdown. And then boom, it was 2018. 

Bong Bing bong

Then it was listening to the Music, the display, the chatter with a new year and also drinking a Fanta Zero while doing the glasses chining with parents. But eventually it was time to get the video made. 
Well after a cup of coffee, 3 tsp of nescafe gold and one tsp of orange hot chocolate. 

The Editing

I chose Checkpoint and and actually paid £2.20 for it to help out and all that, but that song is HARD AF to Edit since there is a beat that changes every so often and luckily the slowdown helped and my energy weas 

But time progressed, my insides were being troubled so distractions were happening and nop sleep got things mostly done, well by 6am I had done half of it. But it took most of the entire day, I did manage to have a snack for lunch and also Tea as well.

The first tea for 2018

After this, life felt back to normal minus some new filming for a new collab which will be interesting to say the least

A look back at the 2017 Resolutions and Facts:

This has been an expensive year and also a fun one too. 

  • Weight as of NYE  = 194.3 lbs
  • Tinder matches as of Jan 2017 = 31
  • Messages to/from girls on Feabie in 2017 = 23 
  • Total Feabie Profiles Views = 1,219
  • Total Money Sent on Girls = £172.12
  • Total Money Spent on Girls (Food, Giftcards etc)  = £413.61
  • Total Followers gained in 2017 on Twitter = 2,728

So then, Did i pass or did i fail. Lets find out: 

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

Which pretty much says i hardly got things done. I did miss alot of chances but now I've got more time to myself at certain times, it can help with what goals will happen for me in 2018. Girls have gone and love changes but things are looking on the up, some new local potentials are around and also a job i'm passionate about and can be able to control without the fear or expectation sometimes is good.

The 2018 Resolutions: 

With all this in mind. Lets set those goals for this year:

  • Get Crash N Sane trilogy Finished - This makes things easier for later on
  • Get blogposts and vlogs up quicker - The motivation is low but hopefully with better devices and maybe coffee, I can get this done 
  • Have a Holiday or Weekend away by myself - This will be well needed, since it will be the frist time in 6 years I've had a holiday since now i've had 2 weeks off since leaving the old job, its been good. 
  • Meet up with a girl from Feabie - Well,  this is hopeful this year, even if it means £500 spending over time
  • Be able to make enough money from work to Pay myself - I can't pay myself when theres not enough money to pay me and keep bills paid in the business just yet. Living off what i saved is the plan for now. 
  • Get myself ready for sex - This means i will have to get the E45 reason solved quicker. 
And thats it. We will be getting new things done and this will be a year with good and bad, hopefully more good but sometimes the past will come back in ways which could end up bad.
