I’ll Most Likely Be Playing Crash Bandicoot All Night

Friday 30 June 2017

The Crash Bandicoot didn’t turn up until just a moment ago; I thought it would be here by late morning as that’s when games usually order come. No idea why this time it came so late. So tonight I’m going back to my childhood. I still have the three original games that I had when I was a kid; I managed to keep a lot of my childhood games.

I managed to write some more last night, laying out how I think the short horror story should go. I really should focus on completing one thing. I need to focus more.

There is not much to say at the moment, not done much. I’ll try to post one question and my answer every day in June, for a challenge.

New Exercises And Crash Bandicoot

Thursday 29 June 2017

I did ten push ups today before my back started to get really bad. I think I’ll limit the push ups to about five; I might do ten if I think I can manage it. I’m doing physio exercises, so maybe when my back gets stronger I can start adding more, but for now, I’ll do a little. It’s annoying not being able to fully work out but it’ll get better.

I am still trying to learn to speed read, I think I’ve improved on my own, but I might need someone who can teach me, or look up ways to do it online. I tried an app for a while, but I am not sure if it’s working. I think that I can cut my reading time in half without my OCD, so maybe if I can speed read, I can cut it in half that way, then when I have my OCD under control I can read even faster.

I’m planning on going to the cinema again Saturday, I think we’re seeing Despicable Me 3. After which I will be writing with my friend to see if we can do the first chapter of a novel and a short horror story.

The new Crash Bandicoot comes out tomorrow and I’m getting it, those games were a big part of my childhood, being some of my favourite games from back then.

Writing, Exercise And OCD

Wednesday 28 June 2017

I was thinking on what exercises to add, I didn’t do any last night as I suddenly got a migraine as I sometimes do randomly. I was thinking of adding some sit ups, but I expect since that involves my back more, it’ll be harder to do for me, so I will try doing at least one tonight or tomorrow, to see if I can even do them. If I can, I’ll add 10 and work my way up like I did with the push ups. I can do 30 push ups easily now, so I might chance it to 50 either this week or next week. I’m proud of myself for eating much healthier things lately; of course, I haven’t cut out all junk food at all, I still have some fizzy drinks every so often, but it’s an occasional thing now.

I’ve decided that I need something to write by myself while I’m writing a few things with my friends. While I have a few solo projects, I always get distracted if I get a new story idea. I should just write one thing and stick to it but that is easier said than done. I could do some short stories, but I always think of ways to make them longer and into a novel. I am thinking of just writing something simple, something that won’t need much work and can be updated in its own time.

I’ve booked my doctor’s appointment, and I’m seeing him next week. I thought I might be able to get in this week, but it’s busy down there. I did manage to do several things while holding my OCD back, it was hard not to do them, I did have to stop after a while. I’ve learned to walk away and try not to think on what it was my OCD wanted me to do, despite how much my OCD wants me to think of it. I don’t always manage to do it, but this time I did.

Anime And Podcasts

Tuesday 27 June 2017

I managed to sleep last night; I had some energy when recording the podcast, so I’m glad. The recording went well, we still haven’t got a name yet, so I expect I’ll have to go back and add in the name before I upload them all. It was about Sword Art Online, and it started strong but went downhill quickly. I have no idea if the last six episodes will be good, but I hope they will.

I have an idea for a short horror story, while I want to work on it, I have to finish other things too. I seem to be someone who works on new stories as I come up with them and don’t always finish what I was doing.

I didn’t do much but record today, so not much to report on. I will be sorting through my emails tomorrow and planning to make an upload schedule, to see when it best suits us.

OCD And Insomnia

Monday 26 June 2017

I didn’t sleep last night; I had to be up early anyway due to a mistake with appointment times, so I’ve just been trying to relax. I still did my exercises as I want to form them into a habit or at least routine. I wanted to read but I’m too tired at the moment, I’ll try to read tomorrow after I’ve recorded a podcast episode and written a little with my friend.

Today wasn’t very eventful; I went through it in almost like a trance as the lack of sleep was getting to me. I signed up for a computer course, I already know pretty much everything they teach, I’m just there to take the test and get a qualification. It’s always good to get qualifications, even if you don’t plan to get a job in that qualifications field.

Reading, OCD And Insomnia

Sunday 25 June 2017

I managed to read today for a little bit, managed my OCD a little better. I feel I can do so much more if I could manage my OCD to the point that it doesn’t get overbearing. I’m calling my doctor tomorrow to make an appointment, I expect I’ll see him sometime over the week.

I will be back to editing tomorrow morning, I hope to wake up early to get some things done. I do what I usually do when I can’t sleep, which is to do something, but the longer you go without sleep, the less you can do things like concentrate, so playing games well or writing anything good seems to be something for when I sleep well.

I plan to add more exercises tomorrow.

Writing, Movies And OCD

Saturday 24 June 2017

I wrote with a friend today, we got the rough of the first chapter done. I think we’ve done well so far. I need to finish off some poems of mine. I am in that mood when I feel everything I’ve written seems bad. I’ve never had too much faith in my own work, I think I can do decent enough, but good is another thing.

I think that next week I’ll start to add more exercises. I think I’ll go to my doctor and ask if there is anything for my OCD. I doubt want to be on medication since I’m on so much, but if there’s nothing else, I will. I think there are courses which can help you manage it. I’ve done well on my own so far, but I think I’ll see if I can get some extra help.

I’m going to watch a few movies tonight and tomorrow, if I can get some sleep tonight, I will read tomorrow too.

Barbecue, OCD And Movies

Friday 23 June 2017

I went with my brother and some friends to watch the new Transformers movie. It’s exactly as you’d expect, action, explosions, little character development and story.

I plan to write out another poem and read a lot more, the problem is finding time and getting over my OCD, as that can eat into time for a while.

When I get physically better I plan to work out more.

I’ve been having another barbecue with my family and friends and it’s really fun, they’re playing beer pong at the moment, I played one game so I’ll be going back down in a second.

Sick And Movies

Thursday 22 June 2017

The weather has cooled down a lot, so it’s bearable in here. I’ve been feeling sick for a while, so I haven’t done anything at the moment, just spend the last few hours lying down.

I might try to read later if I feel better. I watched John Wick again last night so I can write a review on it. I’m watching John Wick Chapter 2 after I post this. Probably going to write a review on both films and then if I still feel like crap I’ll try to sleep.

I am going to try and think of a plan to get closer to where I want for the rest of the year. Just need to feel well enough to do it, guess that is why I’m exercising though.

Reading And Summer

Wednesday 21 June 2017

It’s too fucking hot. I’m sweating too much, to the point where I’d have to change t-shirts times so far because they get soaked, it’s not nice. I’ve no idea why it gets so fucking hot in here and it’s started to affect my mood, I can’t concentrate on anything, it’s harder to sleep, and it’s making me hate summer with a passion, seriously, fuck summer.

I’ve come up with a more detailed outline of my first chapter after changing something, but it’s too hot to write anything, I was thinking of writing a few movie reviews, but even watching a movie in this heat is hard.

Reading was hard enough with OCD, now the heat is making me stop every few pages, I managed to read 24 pages, but it was getting hard.
