Lost some weight, learning photo shop, going for writing classes.


Hey Everyone,

Hope your week has been good. Nothing to write about but let's roll, anyhow.

Signed up for Photoshop classes

Well I got free Photoshop from work. Yeah, I'm rolling like that so I've enrolled for some Photoshop classes at an evening class. Hopefully I'll be able to share some of my work as I progress.

Why pay money when you learn off the youtube and other free internet tutorials on the internet? you ask.  

True but its not the same. I get to learn off a pro who said I can ask him questions about my project. I was straight up when it came to my turn about why I enrolled. It's a ten week basic course and I want to make my own book covers. Now this isn't about saving money because to be fair the classes aren't cheap.  But it's about satisfaction. Like I was planning to buy a book cover but couldn't find the right one. Then in my new job I got access to Photoshop so I was okay let's roll with it. If my covers are rubbish then I'll buy.

Going for more writing classes.

I started off this blog about my writing, got distracted but behind the scenes I've been grinding hard, trying to fix my novel. And, dudes, it's coming along fine. I've currently attending a highly recommended Faber course so I hope that will help. Like it's not the super expensive one. That I'll have to sell a few copies before I venture but it's a good start.

Lost 1.9kg - 4 lbs taking in packed lunch.

Yay! This week I planned my lunch and decided to go for the bread plunge. Yes. I don't buy 'bread' but always end up buying sandwiches. Don't ask. It's so complicated. No one buys bread anyone but yet we eat a lot of sandwiches. Anyway I got some baps - 4 in a pack from Waitrose, some reduced fat hummus and sprouts. So I made a sandwich everyday with a hummus, sprouts and shredded carrots. And a tangerine for desert. Not bad. When the hummus finished I had an avocado and peanut butter sandwich. That wasn't as tasty but I think it's because of the peanut butter. Nah, I'm over this natural organic healthy eating peanut. and going back to my normal Sunpak full of sugar butter. Sue me. Don't care. Then again I may get used to it.

Work

For some reason I walked into the men's toilet by mistake. Don't ask me why, I think its probably because the male and female toilets are on alternative floors and I wasn't familiar with the building. Luckily it was empty so not a big deal. It would have been embarrassing if this wasn't the case.


Finally, nothing much to say. Will be updating this as I go. Hopefully with more exciting news or events.

Thanks for reading.

Anna

BIG NEWS! PART OF A WRITING GROUP! WEIGHT LOSS!

Hello Blog reading family,

I've got some exciting news! I'm now writing under a writing group. This is awesome. I'm so excited. It's the Wuraola Writing Group. www.wuraola.co.uk So excited about this. It's all coming together in some sort of way.

Other news

I'm on a fitness plan. Going to the gym five times a week. No it isn't that deep as I only do a twenty minute walk-run...But I hit 1-1.5km which is good for me. I've also looked into my eating. So a bit boring for now, no cake. Yes, no CAKE....but I was feeling terrible. I felt and looked fat. That is totally different from being fat. I've been fat for a long time but never felt fat not did I look fat in my eyes.

Also I had problems due to the weight. So I looked into my weight scale and found I was edging on morbidly obese. I am currently on the wrong end of the obese scale so I want to come down to overweight. I need to lost about 20 pounds for that. Yes, to move from obese to overweight I need…

Elvenar - playing the fantasy game.

I am now of the one of the millions of addicted gamers. True. I'm playing a game called Elvenar which is a fantasy city builder. A friend of mine introduced me to it and since then I've spent countless hours playing it.

It's time like this, I'm happy I've got a day job as that gives me a rest. It is truly addictive however in  way it's a strategy game.

So it starts off very easy and progressively gets difficult. I'm on level two and this is where strategy comes in. And boy does strategy play a part.

I guess the aim is to build a big and powerful city where a owner or gamer can form alliances. I'm far from the level.

So in the beginning a gamer chooses to be human or elf, then from there starts to build. In each species you start from a village or hamlet status with primitive and rough looking dwelling to becoming a sophisticated looking city.

The key I've learn the hard way is to have as many houses as you can since that generates taxes and also wo…

Been a semi-entrepreneur is TOUGH!!! Wolves in Sheep Clothing.....

Hey everyone,

Things have been busy! Very busy. I mean my writing. The self publishing world is murky as well as other bad things I shall not mention. But I shall overcome and persevere. Perseverance is the only way forward in this shady murky business.  Yes. I will overcome. I will pray and step forward, keeping in my own lane.

Anywho writing is long term, so I can't complain because I've just written a novella. I'm not a one-book writer so I shall persevere and do the next.

Other Things

I decided to have a podcast about taking on the life of semi-entrepreneur. I'm doing  on youtube so if you want to listen you are welcome.  https://youtu.be/3lOtCdAYfK4

I'll aim for once a week. Other than that, I'm managed to lose about 10 pounds. Yay. I'm wearing clothes. I haven't worn in ages.

It's a late but next time I write, I'll give an update on my declutter as well.

Keep well.
