Daily Writing Journal: Movie or Boxset Night: Breaking Bad series 1

This came highly recommended at screen writing workshop, I'm not a screen writing but I do take any writing workshops that interest me. It was actually season four but I decided to start at the first season.

It's about a chemistry teacher, Walt White, who is down on his luck financially, and worse is diagnosed with a terminal illness. For money, he gets involves with the drug trade by 'cooking' crystal meth. He's got loads of family problems and his brother-in-law works for the DEA - that is like the drug law enforcement so they are indirectly battled against each other. 

It's violent with it does have human and empathic moments to tone down the horrors. And there is some very dark humour to relieve tension. However  really my kind of series since I like happy optimistic shows. It's just a bit too gruelling for me. I do have a box set so series 2 & 3 to watch I've decided not to watch them, just because its not my thing.

It's an excellent show for what it is, and doesn't glorify the drug trade but on the other hand, I reckon I can spend my time watching happier stuff.  I also have Games of Thrones box set which I haven't being able to watch so it  may be rather than the shows.  

Do I recommend it? Yes, if you like crime series and want to see a bigger picture cat and mouse game between the dealers, the authorities and some victims. Not too much of the victims but just enough to show there are victims. Not recommended for folks who like optimistic and positive stuff.

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.

Weekly update. Verdict on Check It movie, lack of black male role models and normal boring stuff. Oh and I'm still fat.

Hello everyone! So new focus. Yes, I never know what to write about. Never know what’s interesting so I’m just going to write for myself…if that makes sense. There are slew of blogs trying to change the world, radicalise the world, and revolutionise the world so I’m not doing that here. Not am I going to think - oh will people find this interesting or boring. To be frank, I’m a pretty boring person but hey ho let me write.  I’m thinking of changing my gym. Well right now I’m a member of Virgin Active Health Club which styles itself as a life style gym, and to be honest the only thing I use is the hot tub, sauna and steam room. In the three years I’ve been a member, I’ve only been in the gym about ten times, gone for two classes - they are always fully book so I only really just use the hydro-pool/spa, and steam room. I’m a member of the Islington Angel branch which is were all the posh liberals are.  This is a picture of the spa, and pool. The pool can be a bit chill at times.
