Well here we go, its finally time to review a year which started off terribly and over the time of learning from my mistakes and well, ended up actually maybe reaching the goal I've wanted to for a long time. But with this lockdowns it has the time to reflect, make some money, do some hard choices but in the end. The music video i have no idea on what to do, so you'll hear it to find out what I know.

Which it was seeming like a good year so far and also patiently waiting and also making plans to enjoy feederism more in real life was a hope. Also not knowing with some of the people that would be lost in both real life and also through falling out was going to be a shock. The first few days were to catch-up and plan this year, like the check on the goals I set myself this year which actually I got more done than I thought.
The Bike was soon to be the end of its knees with bearings to go which was a few months away yet and editing does take a number out on you, but the good thing is that with plans of buzzing, I could have done more and got some extra bits for what was going to be a useful spend in Lidl. Finley was settling in and eating food, the camera was turning into a great thing for the months I had it but life gets in that way.
Plus Toasted Sandwiches I had loads of and was soo good, not knowing with the events of what was to come
For lunch today. A toasted ham peanut butter Ritz cracker Sandwich pic.twitter.com/KqUs5Nzop6— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) January 5, 2020
But then it was time to plan and edit the review of something, Which was the new Redmi note 7 and well soon that was my phone of choice, especially when it arrived after the last time i spent some social time with someone not work or family. Which i didn't realise at the time would be the last time that happened and 2020 had been a year of no real life social on its own outside of family or work. But it was also time to get new shoes for this year too, and there was a real chance to try to get to use as condom for my hopes I might get to maybe be at a point to have sex, but the world was not going to be on my side. I've still got a few left from the ones I purchased earlier in the year, but now I realised that I was aiming for something simple like being around someone one on one more often to build confidence and well that was a goal this year, but well....
|New shoes from Lidl, hint the grey ones died in less than 8 months|
|The reduced snacks and condoms|
|The Road outside my house, what a time of construction that was, it looks so much different months later|
Now it was time to get the Redmi Note setup and that was the week of waiting for the bootloader unlocking, since I rushed the review last time and this time i wanted to not have stressful issues, there were some but it was the case of seeing how it works, which well minus the GPS being Shit in the long run for workouts via the mi band 4 later on, it did perform very well and event today it still does, not slowing down for what I want it for, now on a better network in some ways due to pricing and well, soon a feature would make this really effective.
|Setting it up|
Then it was finally time to Start the Review of the Note 7. This is one thing that took its time and it will be a long review and the start of many more reviews this year.

But from the times, it was more of having another time of Chinese takeout which made me miss the past and at the same time it made me wish i could do it again, not knowing what's in store for me. But it was soon the first time for taking pics at night with amazing looks.
For tonight. A Chinese takeout for £27. crispy seaweed, nachos, duck in plum sauce, salt n pepper chicken, crispy shredded beef and prawn crackers pic.twitter.com/iXnhmc4Z6I— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) January 10, 2020
Work lunches were there and also the remembrance of the fragrances from the days of Tavi College and #crappycityplym but well my time as well as still some of the classic combos I still cherish, but it was soon time passed full of work.
For tonight, chicken tikka masala, poppadom, nachos, salad, cheesecake, potato salad and peanut butter pic.twitter.com/iUviqLsGSx— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) January 13, 2020
But it was the progress of the fraud to find out what was going on with Wescott and there was small progress bit by bit, and action fraud was no help and no reply at all and not even today months later. But all we can do is focus on other things. Which in this case is just work on both jobs and getting the video editing done for the Redmi note 7 video. Which

But as it was nearing the end of the month, it was looking like plans were having to be in action, there was slight worries of how this year would turn out, not as bad as it had been but still a worry. And even people photoshopped in food.
I can see someone's photoshopped one in there https://t.co/tvP3XJfUPm— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) January 26, 2020

I had a snap of belly rubs from an old-time waster whos still the same size as 3 years ago. Sometimes you know people do play games with me but i just looked and ignored. Especially for real-life exciting times ahead with real people soon— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) January 28, 2020
The month ended with hope and the real start to change of this year and really not for the good. It was also time of the Review for a new thing for the Redmi Note 7 which did not have good hopes for at all. Food was will as it is and Also Brexit day was a there, Christ what a sideshow that would turn out to be from a man behind the scenes.
For tonight. Gammon, gallon potato pasta, mustard, chips, crunchynut and ketchup pic.twitter.com/21uzVgbBol— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) January 28, 2020

Then we head into 1 month before the chaos started.....
|The front of the box|
|The band with a custom face|
Now first off, I was getting the bus to see a customer, the one I adopted Finley from of all things, But it went wrong with already a text from her to say she's too tired and we can re-arrange, which my rushing was making this worse, but reading the text on the train then no reply is a mess and well I also deserved it, being too buzzed about this and it was going to fail. But its been months since I was on a train last (well if you count the tube, its been 3 months, if you don't count tube, then 9 months).
|A selfie before leaving|
|The viaduct at its best|
|Waiting for the train|
|Views from the train|
Then it was sadly the time to realise the day was going to be the realisation thing wont work out and its only going to get worse, But well after in the rain and saying I got to the station, It was time i left and made use of the first run of the mi band 4, for a distance from keyham to town and well, it didn't really work out, well accurately.
|Back to town|
|Shopping from poundland|
|The Barcode and its wonder|
|Jeans which were not as long lasting as I expected|
But we look to find out and carry on working and it was with Covid appearing out of the the shadows, only minor headlines. But arguments were going to surge and feabie was getting more and more risky with messages that were getting scary and pretty deep as well. The Soles from poundland did not work as well as I hoped, and food was still a daily thing.
From Thursday night. Chinese chicken curry, Baked Beans, Coco Pops, Mustard and salad pic.twitter.com/8vMIV1sxaG— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) February 7, 2020
A friend of mine bought me a £4.50ish a chicken and coleslaw sandwich for lunch today along with £1ish for a bag of bacon crisps pic.twitter.com/8jmP102Ak1— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) February 7, 2020
It was also when my dad had the screen blow on his old laptop, he bought/purchased the Xiaomai 6a from me which was okay since for me the limit on that laptop I was reaching quite badly and I wanted to upgrade but little did I know my life would get more expensive as well, well since saving money was going to be important after march.
Also I've sold the laptop I reviewed in September to my dad so now I have to decide on finally getting the creator laptop I should get for video editing better. Mech revo is about £550 and damai 6 is about £500— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) February 9, 2020
But sadly it was be a case of dealing with a nasty #stormciara which was causing floods for loads up north and also winds incredibly strong for this to the point of trees falling down. But this was also then a few crazy phone calls from NatWest and turns out the fuckers (Russian was the receiving end on a monzo account, just thank common sense for being quick enough to realise my mistakes). Even if it was £1,500 gone that time for 24 hours.
More fraud appears , this time john lewis and argos— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) February 11, 2020
But work was catching up and well it was also McDonald's to get their big mac sauce pots again and well it was looking tempting, but the distance was not worth it, so well, ordering from ebay is the way to go. But it was then planning down and more of the routine which was then eventually leading to Pancake day and even maybe beyond, but that was 2 weeks away. But it was full of cuddles with Rosie at night after work too.

But it was nearing the halfway of feb and friends were good on calls which was the first time in recent of having a good natter on the phone and making sure both of us was okay. Plus visits for customers was really important as well, which later on I would find that would be a lot of times for that to happen. Especially in the coming weeks. But the sauces arrived
For tonight. Chicken pie, mixed pasta, roast Potatoes dark chocolate biscuits and ketchup pic.twitter.com/OlB0JLvK1u— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) February 18, 2020
As #Fatthursday was approaching I did more things than Mrs Patel, used bigmac sauce in a load of ways and then it was soon time to have pancakes, which makes things tasty. Plus it was soon time to end signing out of vlogs with a pose which made me look like one of my customer's kids and it was not a good look.

Well it was time for new changes and to live on the plans of focus on on those that were there for me and also it ended up my first time to actually fit a new faceplate for the house and well, it worked out really well in the end for me for the upload went to a consistent 14mbps up and a bit of lower speed down but it stable and fixes some things on the BT checkers. But wiring is no easy task.
|Fitted and working|
|The first reading of the weight on it.|

IT was also time I finally changed my hair, to blue and this was a time to really make this work, following another hair guide and more stinging feeling, but a needed change even if it was darker than I wanted it and my mum cut my hair before as well.
I finally feel myself again fashion-wise with cut jeans pic.twitter.com/RRXdTUQuKI— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) March 6, 2020

Today was i thought so back to normality and little time to get what I should do done, but then plans get said and anxiety rises from memories of heartbreak and proposals from 5 years ago— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) March 6, 2020
Also it's been a week since leaving feabie and I don't miss it. I mean I've only tapped 2 morning out of 5 this week— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) March 6, 2020
As the last few days of the time off, I was preparing for new heights of reality and recapping change, the preparation for the new life was to happen, parent returning from Holiday and then feeling the cold which really does make this work out to be strange times ahead, and the Bike was to be cleaned for its new life to work. But it was starting with what could have been one last meetup but I didn't bother attempting to this time. Also I managed to help a fatty out and keep her fed form a voucher I was meant to use for the meetup that didn't happen, but people do deserve it,
|nasty strong geese|
|The railway line was flatted again,|
|More cut jeans|
|Present wrapping for my grandparents|
|The bike had to be cleaned|
Which then it was time for one final shave and final week of work before the world I knew was going to be locked out and more stress for the year. The reports of food being stockpiled and Shelves going empty. But this was coming for all times and the UK was going to shatter in more ways.
I wish sometimes there could just be a letter that clearly shows or has no consequence from being able to put yourself out of a situation that will cause you to stress and anxiety but that question I will find the answer out soon— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) March 9, 2020
This was then the start of learning some of the realties of being alone and then my sister got engaged, on this weekend which that did hurt me a lot and makes me understand on how things can repeat themselves from years ago.
Also is it wrong to be called stupid since I said no to looking at a picture of a recently engaged couple (sister) it make me feel anxious and uncomfortable (I didn't gel like right to tell them why)— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) March 10, 2020
Also I have a feeling that a breakdown is on the way— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) March 10, 2020
But as the final 2 weeks of freedom was commencing, you could really tell that things were going to be tearing themselves apart, feelings were low and well it did cause a cold in most cases. Plans for this year were going to be put off but really really not expecting the turn out of events that were to follow. Sure I've been binge watching Harley Quinn at the time and its been a great thrill series to watch as well.
This is looking serious for Coronavirus and it will change a few things on my life too as much as life never changes down in the devon area. But vitamins, smoothies and less stress is the time to be productive and might accelerate plans for what was to happen in may— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) March 12, 2020
The only thing I get do stockpile on, taken 4 vitamin C tablets a day (two tablets per drink in morning and evening) and I can cure the cold in a week back in November and actually the same technique will fight corona if I do come in contact pic.twitter.com/gb3DmQE9J9— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) March 15, 2020

Then when it came to the shaving, it was some really times to know lectures would be hard for a realisation which was rash and getting called a cunt for saying it but It really does hold up in the long term since plans don't always happen but a point does make it seem harder to stick to and it was another reason to get away from a community I do enjoy. Even if its expensive and makes it majorly complex like online dating does.
Then it was 5 days left until the world in my life changed, Well actually 7 but times were the scary part, the news was going raving on and well I still remember the soon to be final days in work before a big choice was about to happen...even with a 7/10 rating. That and Bike lights were needed for the visits in the Dark which were soon to happen less and less as the world got brighter in nature and darker for society
Also my camera app can rate me out of 10 pic.twitter.com/wUYEh3hSE4— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) March 16, 2020
Soon it was to be time to change adverts and well also there was a change where curiously, my parents binned or took to the tip, my sister's Bed from the bedroom so i could have an office to be able to go more work and well even be able to stream which later on was soon to be the plan with what was to come. But well, the news spread and so did the virus, which means things were going to change, with the introduction of being clean with Gloves and also making sure that people were soon to have no choice but stay at home, which for some will be the un happy days and times.
|Websites to be updated|
|Streets at night were going to be empty|
|Gloves were soon to be used more often|
PM @BorisJohnson announced new measures to try and limit the spread of coronavirus in the UK:— Twitter Moments UK & Ireland (@UKMoments) March 23, 2020
- Public gatherings of more than two people banned
- All “non-essential” shops closed
- Restrictions on people leaving their houseshttps://t.co/6WvuwxjcW4
Which means we go back into to the weekend before, well it had to happen and time to do a clear-out of work, which I really appreciate my mum helping me on this.
This meant alot of things, it was first ending a lease 2 months early which could of been expensive. Secondly its the access to the stuff and stock which might be needed later on for customers. So 2 days to clear it all, well here we go.
|More vitamins before we start this day|
|Finley was wanting outside more and more|
|The final time I would see that blue digital Display up, even as i type this|
|The Car stuffed full of goods|
|Things are looking more empty by the day|
|The Room was slowly filling up|
Now this day was more the final preparations and the goodbyes and the cleaning, It felt emotional,
|Cleaning with Paint stripper is a powerful tool|
|The signs being carried home as the final part to bring back with me, the rest was for the colleague to sort out, which sadly didn't happen much from what i heard later on|
|Toasted sandwiches were becoming my fave|
|Also trying to cook new things lime Tempura Battered burgers|
|omelettes were also making a comeback too|
|The Cat interrupts when doing video editing|
|More food and meals including those big crackers|
|Dogwalking was a long time , since both me and mum were not working|
|The views are always amazing|
|Some Tempura Batter from the Wholefoods shop which was only open a few days before they closed for the rest of the first lockdown. The final shop before lockdown happened.|
Which it was already a home visit on those first few days since unfinished business was to be done, even with my mum dropping me off for one while she walked the dog on the moors on that few days, it was also learning of the nasty Coronavirus Bill which was for 3 years which planned laws in an instant, making it tough to keep up as well.
You see, #lockdownnow means pretty much freedom long term is gone, yes we might need it in bigger cities for a few months but not 2 years as the #CoronavirusBillUK is proposing. Well this will be a big show of chaos when the virus does hit— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) March 23, 2020
That and minus more turn on trendings It was just that sinking feeling of quietness and the lockdown really happening, Since as well as this it was the time the second job really did make its mark for money, which means I had to be very quiet for 3 weeks in this case, but that was not this week, that was nearing the Easter time. Then another flat tyre for cycling which would be soon to be a LOT more of them, which makes things even more stressful, but with that occasion, it was pretty much the end of the bike since the bearings had been starting to die on them as well. Which means it was time to swap bikes again. and it was finally time to knuckle down and do the second job, and really help customers online which was going to be 3 weeks of alot of typing and screen and little things other than that.
Well my self-isolation for me starts from tomorrow. Today was lovely views, Facebook messenger calls on a hill with a flat tire and realising a telephone exchange went down so a customer has no internet for 3 days except via portable hotspot. But for me i can now do more for me— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) March 24, 2020
Plus the first time of it the Government did put out a warning on text message for everyone to read, which both of my networks were not in that list so no text for me, Which this was the last of these networks of a positive note, since later on new network choices were to be made. My regret was might not be doing it sooner, but at the same time it was the choice of who to go with as well. It was also a time for Geocaching which i still planned to get a video on that done someday.
|The Web around|
|More rice mixes and onions|
|Smoothies and biscuit sandwiches were needed so much|
|The streets quiet|
|Getting the essential shop, for family, even though dad was worried and anxious about it all|
|More of the essential shop|
|which make some of the views|
and then sometimes, its has to be the best way with the second job
and Gfuel needed for this,
part of me misses using Gfuel (Not had it for 3 months now)
|It was time to try to get this to work for streams|
|More Lidl essential shopping|

This still kept me going and well it was more time to work on it before the week is up. IT was also the growth of tiktok and where internet memes can thrive when lockdown is happening, Sadly i missed out a bit on it and well, sure I could try but money is more important for the future in this case it will be really important. But people were having food date opinions and also more mixed bread roll sandwiches were on the cards too.
For me its got to Be. Greggs, McDonald's and Either Pizza Hut or KFC,— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) April 10, 2020

#day21oflockdown and i finally have free time to film videos :) Fist pumping is first on the list— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) April 16, 2020
Then it was time to get the fist pumping video sorted out, which I know I could have chosen more meme-ful music and it was showing how unfit I had been from not leaving the house much compared to almost everyday before lockdown happened.
well this is how I get the angle wrong when filiming a first pumping video pic.twitter.com/Rr6ofvxM7h— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) April 16, 2020
This then leads to the first time I show you a new field to explore with some incredible views of the town, well at night and even with the dog barking from being scared as much as she loves walking at night, it was something different and actually a retake of a vlog I attempted but never finished off. This was also the second catch-up and starting a full box of 20 gfuel sachets

Sadly though, we have to go through the repeat of the reason I left feabie, when messages appear to friends of mine as well as shitty ones to me and well it gets to the point of it needing to stop and this be out in the open. Since things like this get out of hand and actually can break friendships and a lot of trust which made this year to the point of feeling lost and wanting to jump off a viaduct, especially with knowing that I People special to me, knowing something Once amazing ruined to ash can really ruin life.
over the past few months messages have been going around about me to certain friends in Instagram by accounts that have been just made up then disappear. now I've kept this quiet but this has been happening since December and quite frankly this needs to addressed— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) April 22, 2020
But you have to learn from the past is the rules said, but we then have the chance to do a bit of planning to get more videos sorted out for the next few weeks as well, to keep my mind from not collapsing, which meant 2 videos to get done, a shopping vlog and a review of Apple juice
|More Selfies before filming|
|Frozen fruit was a godsend|
|and those stand and stuff kits and aloe vera juice were amazing|
|This is a 4 leave clover I found the day after my mum found one, which made me hope that luck was going to be on my side|
The Apple juice drink
As April was nearing its final moments, work was getting busy with nearly 3 visits every Monday planned, gfuel with vitamin tablets, and even a feabie friend moved to Plymouth with her ex which not much will lead from it but maybe it was a ponder of fate which is a of course not factor. But May was now to be approached and well it was more arguments and truths to find out as well as new anxieties from family. Soon to Happen around about. But Finley was being his own boss. Zara also messaged me and turns out she's settled down with someone but also blimped up yet would have still wanted me to feed her, but times have to be about the ones that meet and can have time to spend with.
|Like a Boss or some say like a slob|
|More food shopping|
|And more, like cat food since this boy was growing|
Epson I'll never be a happy friend with anymore
With all the stress, its made me not shave and that is needing and overdue which does help my confidence as well, But we know its always the way and it was finding the time to squeeze working/cycling around, directly work and always YouTube in at the same time. But sometimes skip some to fit others in is the plan, oh and cake mix leftover for breakfast is actually Peng.
for breakfast today. vanilla sponge cake mix pic.twitter.com/oZenOSA7yb— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) May 3, 2020
IT was also the time that work orders had to happen, Which means Headsets for Zoom meetings for customers and well even as i type this, some of this stock is still with me, but cant beat stealth, the return rate has not been as bad as local suppliers which I've walked away from, maybe one day it will catch up with me but for now its still to keep going and more times and boxes will be stacked. This was also the day i had closure from a friend I was worried i lost which actually I know both of us were in a bad place which time can heal.
|The Farm Shop near me, which does have some good things|
|Work always needs headsets and well on a discount day is what better way|
|It was also trying to get in to the cooking|
|Lidl is always the best quick way to get bits|
It was soon time to get more deliveries and visits done this year before planning to get another video sorted and it was also to catch up in the past 2 weeks to keep it easier to maintain this. . But the skies were clear and there was further distance to cycle up for visits. There wer some good night shots but later was the better chance to have them done, Still not the best idea for the ones i wanted to go to this year but That might be a next year choice, But later this year i did get to attempt it.
well you would be surprised on how amazing seeing some stars at night is pic.twitter.com/M1RjFyMbnz— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) May 12, 2020
well an exhausting cycling day but we'll nice hills and views to see pic.twitter.com/ZCcnpuulyy— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) May 13, 2020
This was also the first time the Epic Game Store was still pushing out Free games to the point it crashed (I still got it 1 day later since its for that week) which would prove useful later on for a review, but then memories of hot weather a year ago when the life I had taken now was or could have been different. Then we had the intro of the R Rating, which in the end was scrapped then suddenly reintroduced when it was a feel like it, by a government at least. But sometimes is what do you advise or have advice from people that went to banard castle, which eventually times get what coming to him, which no sadly that did not happen as we find out later. But also whoop the first BBQ of the year.
Also Since GTA V is on the Epic Games Store for free, i might be able to so some of those Benchmark testing with a old combination from years ago and maybe a new laptop soon— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) May 14, 2020
A year ago on this Day (Not date),— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) May 14, 2020
I ran in hot wearher to a event in silverstone, overdosed on orange juice and went inside the Asus rog gaming bus and crashed in forza horizon 4 , this was one day before my life changed and met someone special https://t.co/TauSaCXgbP
for tonight. a first bbq of the year, burgers, mushroom sausages, beef and onion crisps, salad, roll, turmeric rice, burger sauce and peri peri sauce pic.twitter.com/26hw67vax0— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) May 15, 2020
Oh and now we come to the best times of final chances with poor performance of the Redmi Note 7, which was the introduction of the Amazfit Bip S and also a overdue review on the Waffle maker, since it was 2 reviews to make, one which made some waffle based donuts and the other which would finally check where my exercise would go and in the future, some real miles would be used for this, I still wish life was normal before I could test this, but later on I tried to make the best I can of it and proud of where its been with me for a long time, especially for its budget. It was useful for new journeys and places to explore in the next few days, no this is a one day visit, not a holiday happening.
|Making Yorkshire Pudding Donuts|
|Then frying bacon and Yorkshire pudding waffles|
|Testing it for a walk in the moors|
|The Bacon Sadnwiches|
from Friday night. egg bacon pasty, fish, chips, doughnut, onion rings, peri peri sauce, triple chocolate crisp cereal and ketchup pic.twitter.com/k3DHmtIbK1— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) May 23, 2020
Then it was time to have a explore to a part of Saltash I've never seen before, with it being tranquil and peacefully and also very hot as well with the heatwave in them midst of the pandemic, it was also nice having family and also more ideas of one day being with someone special to the same spots and talking and relaxing and maybe a picnic, but who knows. This was the first time I spent time with my sister since she decided to accept an engagement. This was also the first time to experiment with the feature of using the VR mode or the 360 mode aka photo sphere on Google camera, which would lead on to be some good extras for Google Maps. This was also the final time I would maybe see my grandad's fiancé before things go worse and it would be time to say goodbye in the few months ahead.
|The Views on the road were great|
|More homemade pasties|
|The views of a estuary near the tamar is so good|
|The bees love these type of flowers|
And then it was the longer evenings which is perfect for taking rosie out for walkies in a river to cool her down, and make here swim for the ball, but still she will not return it very close to you at all.
|The dog in the river|
Which then it leads to another Monday with visits and making another tutorial on a type of PC which is called a NUC, But it was the time to also get the 2 weekly catchup sorted as well. Plus it was the time to enjoy a decent deal on a Xbox one.
a £15.55 shop from Tesco today. £4 for chicken chorizo skewers, £4 for minutes lam kebabs, £2 for salted microwave popcorn, £1.75 for satay sauce, £1.75 for hoisin sauce, £0.85 for crunchy peanut butter, £0.52 for volvic water, £0.45 for self raising flour, £0.23 for tiger baton pic.twitter.com/BVNG8skART— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) May 25, 2020
also bought an Xbox one 500GB for £45 today due to needing it for second job pic.twitter.com/D0JZmSqxV9— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) May 26, 2020
also expect another laptop review next months, we'll rumour has it. pic.twitter.com/qctr6sQTwk— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) May 28, 2020
But with that laptop review not going to happen and instead one in the future was to happen, But sadly the world was about to morn and actually change was to be happening, Yes, the big awareness of the BLM movement was to happen, Which this is not a fad and will sustain for months and maybe the years to come, even at the cost of some jobs for people and the term Karen was about to be unveiled. Amazon was becoming racist due to a hack and it was time to put google camera to good use and see the #spacexdragon and more BBQ shopping at Tesco before the final days of May were up.
also, a person lost their life this week for something minor which he did not deserve, just because of his skin colour. the world is sometimes too cruel and people will get the justice he deserves soon— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) May 28, 2020
When a seller on amazon gets hacked and my god the worst comment you can put out there is on their highest selling products of knock off airpods or portable Bluetooth earphones. That's just what the actual no decency at all here.— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) May 31, 2020
|More Night views|
|Even the purple sky|
|More Feast shopping and that Satay sauce was really good|
As things were getting hotter and slowly but surely, restrictions were going to end ins small stages but still illegal for feeding to be a thing which is a shame and the start of the protests were to begin. This I still should have done and the migration of learning the best way to show support which trends ended up making harm to the cause. The weather was still showing no sign of cooling off.
You know what really feels bad. In a way its now illegal to cuddle with a girl and feed her doughnuts by hand until lockdown is over, maybe fingers crossed it will happen next year— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) June 1, 2020
Work was still underway and one of the second selfies with a mask was going to happen, the blurred effect is still amazing in this case and used well, but this month was more of real life visits and the issues with the second job were starting to ease off, since it really crashed and made it unbearable to use after the blast of work I did on it back in April. Cycling around and on dry weather, the weather was less for punctures as well. But soon would be a day in the life video get going and more tutorials of an overdue topic I was meant to do back even in April. But there was your yearly reminder to get a STI test, even if you are a virgin,
it's worth to get a test if you do get to . I'll admit I've not been tested since 2014 when I was hoping to pay for my first kiss. but we'll the GP told me I was rare due to being a 21-year-old relationshipless virgin that doesn't drink /straight edge back then https://t.co/xOCFaCIB5N— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) June 4, 2020
Then it was more working and cycling about, since it was soon time to add another customer to the list for Monday visits in the summer, even if it was a short term arrangement when things happen later on in the family. Which also means another visit to the farm shop and ending up to pay for some spices I've not even seen in supermarkets as of when i purchased it, like the sticky sauce used with Duck in Plum sauce, well plum sauce itself. Also memories of what could have happened, even when wanting to me a model i used to crush on from years back which well we stopped talking from April with not much reason why, but fat always brings back to the people that support us and its best to make sure they are helped in the best way they can which is one of this years important lessons.
for breakfast today. a ham, salad onion and teriyaki cookie sandwich pic.twitter.com/kWqWpt4aNR— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) June 7, 2020
I kept saying to my old self I want to go to Bristol one day for a weekend, after the courage of what happened today, its another reason to go there— Mattie BLM Marker (@omracer) June 7, 2020
As time progress, some new faces did appear for me talking to them but it just felt very one sided and it was like a weird diet vibe with her of reassuring and some wasted fund on food. But eventually the replies didn't happen too much a few months later. But more shopping to occur and this time it was time to get another day in the life sorted, this time testing how 4K can work and only using the Redmi Note 7 filming in 4K and editing in 4K in FCP X, but editing this was a nightmare and this was also the introduction of a monitor which I would later get the chance to review, 5 months later.... Even then it was soon time to have a unique and different type of weekend coming up.
Now that weekend, it was the time of more family to spend and something different in the weekend and well the fruit of the labour, in a literally sense actually. Which was a Sunday all of the family went fruit picking and more of that, which means a lot of it will be the heat and just something varied which is good. The heat was good and its nice to do things every so often, the allotment is really a good chance to relax in some of the best ways, especially with family.

It was very close to being Fathers Day to as well, Which means we need to get presents and Lidl was the best to go to. It was about £18 odd but worth it, since it was also time to reflect on why bars and pubs were very loud and is the reason I write orders down, fun fact I've never been to pubs at all this year.
