still around

Wow it’s been a while since I’ve actually posted anything on here but it seems like there is a never ending amount of blogs that you could all be reading in the mean time, one of my favorites is various personal tumblr blogs that are quite artistic and a lot of them are personal accounts of peoples every day lives which is always a fun read since some of them are quite crazy!

I’ve always found it difficult to cope in “the real world” and lately it seems like whatever site I find I can find some people who think and act just like me, it may be very difficult for a natural introvert to actually get ahead in life but having social skills is something that requires practice and learning, its strange to think of it like that but I believe anyone can break out of becoming a very shy person if they choose to.

I am starting a new job very soon so getting the various checks done soon, it’s strange starting back into the world of the employed again but it’s kind of cool as well as it’s a new opportunity to make something and get back on track, I needed a dbs check done so I order one from here hopefully it won’t take too long to get sorted out.

New headphones for the world cup

One of my favorite events of all time is kicking off today, the world cup is something that I watch all the time because I just love to see all the nations with one pure goal despite the fact that there are still so many things that divide the human race one thing is clear with this tournament and that is everyone is bonding over the same game with the same goal – to win!

This is the time I usually invest in some decent equipment to make my viewing pleasure a bit more special, I often have some world cup parties where I invite friends over for a few drinks while we cheer on our favorite team, those nerve wracking moments are even better when sharing with friends, except for the not so nice penalty shoot outs which are always a touchy subject in england.

I browsed on amazon for a while and found a pair of new headphones I’d like to get so I ordered some, in the end I went with the sony mdrzx100w headphones which had decent reviews and are perfect for my laptop since they have quite a long wire, for those of you that don’t know my past I almost always end up destroying my headphones by rolling on top of them or by general wear and tear, I am hoping these ones won’t see the same fate.


a nice night for a gaze

Lately I’ve been spending alot of time looking out my loft window at night time, this is something I often do when I am in the middle of doing some work but can’t seem to tune in to it, night time is nice up here because the sky is really clear and when its a really cold night it looks perfect.

After much debating I decided to finally invest in a decent telescope, I read the review on and made my purchase from amazon, within a few days I received my telescope and I have to say it’s one of the nicest bits of kit that I have ever invested in, it’s not for the feint hearted at a cost of over £100 but sometimes it’s worth spending some money to ensure you are getting the best.

I have it all set up on a small table now and anytime I get distracted I can just gaze into the sky for a few hours and ponder life’s big questions, it’s really got me thinking about the future and where I fit in this world and for now it seems like I have only one mission and goal and this is to be the best at whatever I want to do in life.

the effects of stress on the stomach

Daily stress is something that is effecting us and our health on a daily basis, stressing over financial situations, poor health, toxic relationships and other things we can’t control is really starting to take it’s toll on us as a nation and it’s becoming more and more toxic due to things like recent job losses and economic downturns which can mean millions of people around the globe all being effected in “the domino effect”.

One place we almost always see stress having an effect is the stomach, when we get nervous we get a feeling of butterflies in the stomach but also complaints of diarrhea due to stress, this is a very embarrassing problem for most and many in the professional world know exactly how much this can effect your working day, however the good news is that probiotics can improve the situation by adding in more beneficial bacteria to improve the digestive process, for more information check out the site or do a search on google.

In terms of reducing stress I have often found that going for a walk in nature helps but others prefer things like listening to soothing music, doing yoga in the morning and of course daily meditation, however they don’t always work and sometimes you still just get hung up on the day and can’t detach so for some people it may be that they have to take medication such as anti anxiety drugs or SSRI’s to increase serotonin levels, you can also get therapy which is a great outlet to unload some of your daily frustrations and clear your mind.
