Headspace

So far this week has been a productive one mentally at least.  I am still yet to fully get back into dieting but I’m not going to let that get me down.  Now, this may be controversial to some people but I am glad the weather has cooled down.  I don’t want it to be cold but I could barely function in the heat last week.  Perhaps I am more suited to living in cooler climbs? This weekend I plan to push into Android dev and at least have some mock-up functions working that I have been meaning to get into.  For some reason, Bitdefender is detecting parts of Android studio as malware.  Slightly annoying as after several scans there is no threat.  Better to be safe than sorry I guess.

Looking forward (a little)

3 days off after a tough week mentally and sometimes physically for me. I am gonna make the most of this time to try to get my head as straight as possible.

My shoulder has been playing up a lot this week too.  There doesn’t seem …

New roads to travel and old ones revisited

Enrolled in an NHS study last night so now I’m officially getting tracked!  Seriously though, the stuff they do sounds interesting and I am glad to participate.  One of the apps seems to be draining my battery a little faster than I would like though.  I’ll have to mention it at our next catch up.  Right now I am not feeling too bad.  I feel like I am on the lower end of the depression cycle right now.  Good news for me, not so much for the study I guess. The study is for two years I think (my memory needs some work) so no doubt there will be many ups and downs during that period.  Here’s to hoping I can understand this a bit more and take control of it more effectively.  I’d settle for that. In other news, I’ve been reliving my days playing GoldenEye on the N64.  …
