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

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Searching for office christmas party venue, celebrating Momma AG birthday.

Rang to sing Momma A G happy birthday! Got to work early and did some of my goal work. Also Accounting Guru Boss showed me an easy way of planning. She is a genius. It's that simple so I'm going to practice her method of planning.  I must say I've learn plenty. Working with her is like one long professional master class with private tuition.  Glamorous colleague also gave me tips on completing a goal related task. All tasks are like elephants tackle the largest on in the morning. Red Jumper colleague took the day off for Black Friday. Apparently he's waking up at early to go on the internet looking for deals after which he'll go to the shopping centre. Told him I was going to wait until boxing day to get a new purse. Then after all the excitement he was like 'What am I going to do on Cyber Monday." Glamorous and I went looking for some where for our team christmas lunch. She wasn't having us eat in a pub. She has high standards. She was okay abo

HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAPPY 2022! My year of decluttering my creativity!

Happy New Year, Everyone! This was a quiet one, after watching two films last night I called it a night and woke up in the New Year. What films you ask? Guess Who with Bernie Mac, Ashton Kutcher and a lot of cringe worthy jokes. Then I watched Aloha with Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, this was bit better. It had strong moments but I could see why they said it didn't really have any direction. Was it a romance? Was it a military story? It was hard to say what the movie was...a lesson in premise and precision but it gave a nice fluffy feeling and I must say Emma Stone did a brilliant job and so did John Krasinski - he acted with heart.  However it's a nice film and I learn a lot from it, but I think it would have missed the market because there were too many theme or subplots or whatever. Overall a brilliant cast, great acting but the story struggled with doing too much.  Decluttering My Creativity  This year, I'm focusing on decluttering my creativity in the sense of completing
