March Update: Photoshop Composting, Writing, Meal Plan, My first trip out of my area.

Island in a sea
 

This is one of the composites, I created in one of the courses. This was based on graphic design and I feel like an island floating in a new landscape. It is a composite of three images with a bit of blending.

Photoshop Composting

I'm still finding my way with this, so I have the technical skills which I realise it a matter of masks and blending modes however the next thing is to keep on doing it until I learn the principles of graphic design. It's complicated to explain and I'm still finding my way but basically at some point I need to start doing my own stuff, and right now those images look a bit awkward until I get the design aspect right.

It can be fun but also some aspects can be tedious and boring. And I guess it's a matter of keep on practice,  and I also want to get to the point, I can use my own pictures. 

Writing 

Going well and steady, nothing significant to report on that front. But I'm looking at a soft deadline of completing the draft at the end of May.

Meal Plans

Well, Ma and I have taken a break until next Wednesday/Thursday when we'll resume the eating plan. These plans are hard to sustain, even with the best will and intension so it's softly, softly. There are so many restrictions in place then one on food, it feels hard. Anyway, we are going back on track and will resume at least for the next month or so.

My first trip out of my area

After a year of staying solely within two-three miles of my area - about 5km, I made a journey on the train to visit family. Still in the same city, I took the first train about 6am - it was about a ten minute journey then there was walking time. Spent time with family and at just after noon, I made my way back home. I was considering walking back home but decided walking for two hours as opposed to just a ten minute? I knew which I wanted.

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.
