  1. Creative energy or?

    Don't know what is happening but it feels good and I hope it lasts more than a couple of days. I believe this process of knowing about Autism brought light to my life. I feel I am regaining my self-confidence and self-estime; I understand better my behaviours and thoughts and embrace them as part of who I am instead of rejecting them as an anomaly. Where before I saw limitation and error now I see possibilities if I just allow myself to be how I am! This I believe is opening the door to...
  2. Found out trade in prices at CEX today!

    To trade in 3 games, I can get £38 towards Kingdom Hearts 3 on Xbox, which is £50 so I'd just pay the £12 difference. Better than the half price for trading in Crash N Sane trilogy towards it at Game for half price, and CEX generally do better prices than Game most of the time anyway. 3 games for 1 though? Bit extreme but even preowned Xbox One games don't go for much these days, best price when I looked it up on the CEX app was £20 for Now Sing 2 with the microphone, probably a tad less...
  3. Applied for 2 jobs today!

    Meh, doing a Blog entry because people complain about me "spamming" the employment section. Applied to Burton's, the clothes shop in Meadowhall, and also the VUE Cinema in Meadowhall, for part time work. Hopefully I'll get interviews for at least one of 'em.
  4. How Long Did That Take? (a day? or more than a year?)

    Since the middle of January, 2018, I have had a batch of Mario quotes (like from Mario Kart and other games) in drafts. Maybe 2 dozen. Today I thought of a concept. So I have been alphabetizing what I already had, and collecting some more. It will involve a dating ap.I find it's useful to be able to set a thing aside. Tolerance of ambiguity is a useful skill. Even though I had not the slightest idea what could be done with the quotes, eventually I thought of something to put next to them....
  5. We should be in London this weekend! Damn the British weather!

    Above. Just got to entertain myself this weekend playing Xbox and watching YouTube content. I also need to ring Sky up at some point because I don't have access to my My Sky account because I lost the log in details and can't retrieve them because I can't remember the email account it's registered to, I rang them yesterday and the told me that because I've been a loyal Sky customer for 15 years, they said Icould get a free VIP account with various rewards including a free Sky Q box, which...
  6. Miss the warm weather

    Yes. I already miss the warm weather, the Sun! Back to my daily routine. It is very interesting to observe how I feel and act upon life: I like routine but at the same time I am feeling something strange which is I am feeling like this routine is a prison. Never felt this before. I feel a heavy weight on my shoulders again which I did not feel in India, what is the cause of this? Maybe in India I was more relaxed because I was not playing any role and I could let go of the need to...
  7. Adventure ends

    My two weeks journey in South India are almost finished, time to go back home. Feel really tired today and making a big effort to keep it together, pretending I am good, keeping all to myself and feeling completely disconnected from everyone. Can not handle it any other way. Some people asked me today how I am, I guess they can see that something is off but I just smile and say I am ok...sad to be leaving India...and then I ask how they are and they start happily talking about themselves and...
  8. Who we truly are

    Inspiration ‘In front of God, everybody is equal, whether they are a saint or a sinner, a rich person or a poor person, a white person or a black person. God is Love and He just knows how to love. In your true aspect, deep inside your heart, you are Love.’ — Paramahamsa Vishwananda
  9. This week's stuff

    Busy week this week, went food shopping to Tesco on Monday and bought stuff I needed, and then on Tuesday afternoon we stayed in because it was raining. Wednesday morning I went for a meeting at College with a view to packing in the maths course, but they persuaded me to stay on, I'm possibly doing an online test next week for a level 1 certificate. Thursday morning I went to my animation course and did a screen test recording of commentary for our wrestling project, an animation using WWE...
  10. Mechanical Keyboards (Entry 1): An Introduction

    A simple introduction to the World of Mechanical Keyboards. I will try to get a single consecutive blog up every few days to a week, depending on how I'm feeling. If you have any Questions, Critiques, or Concerns, please, don't be afraid to tell me in the Comments!
  11. Love story

    Visiting places connected to the story of Sita and Rama. So the story goes like this ( in short): Rama, an Avatar( incarnation of God), was married to Sita ( incarnation of Mother earth-Bhudevi); He was the heir to the throne but due to some plots ( his father had three wifes and his third wife wanted her son to be the king so she arranged a plot to force the king to put her son on the throne and not Rama who was the first son of the first wife and therefore the heir) he was forced to exile...
  12. Sadness

    After my initial enthusiasm, yesterday I started feeling sad; sad to see what I perceived to be my own limitations: the way I feel disconnected with the people, even though I like them, how I get confused and my brain does not work, my ears don't listen and my mouth is useful only for eating not for talking; sad to see that even though I do not want attention it comes a point where I feel lonely; sad about the fact that even though I have a job I still feel useless most of the time; The...
  13. Not inspired today

    Having a blank right now...the thing is I have net only a little bit in the morning and in the evening and is not sure so if I am not inspired in the moment I kind of miss the chance to write something useful...but what is useful anyway? I do not know what I am feeling, I would like to say excited because I am going to visit a very huge and important place right now but maybe I am just irritated... Anyway to those who like History and Architecture you should definitely study the History of...
  14. Childish mood

    Have you ever felt like you go back to being a child again?(in a good way) This is how India makes me feel. There is just so much joy and colour and music around all the time. There are always children playing around, and animals:) I feel I can be more spontaneous and let go of the stiffness and walls I build for protection in my normal day to day life. I let go of the need to control, because here there is no way I can control anything...Life just happens and you have no choice but to go...
  15. Doing good so far

    It is almost a week since this pilgrimage started and so far so good. I am enjoying and taking care of myself. I do what I feel I should do: if I want to run and laugh I do it and if I need alone and silent time I put my ear plugs and go to my corner and that is also fine; The people with who I am travelling with know I am like this; The first two days I was eating my meals alone in a corner sitting on the floor, but after I started joining them at the table and they were happy:) sometimes I...
