Lent 2012 Progress..

So it's not even been a week yet and I managed to break my Lent! I managed to stay off bread for breakfast during weekdays, for all of one day. And I managed to stay off fizzy drinks for about 3 days? I accidentally took a sip from a friend while blindfolded.. On the 4th sip I realised I had given them up for Lent. Now I'm sick so I'm drinking a fizzy Lucozade (a Powerade equivalent here in the UK). I haven't done Zumba once this week, and I also didn't go to badminton on Monday like I normally do because I'm sick.

I have however been on time, which is good, and I'm starting to be more productive, if anyone follows me on Twitter then they would have received my updates on how quickly I was getting through my to-do list! Most of my to-do list is to do with organisation so I'm doing that. The other thing I'm extremely proud of myself for is that I've been able to stay off crisps (chips to you Americans)! Now I'm a crisp-aholic, so this is quite a big deal for me!

Hopefully I can stay off the crisps and keep on doing the other good things I've taken up!

Wish me luck!

  1. A sip from a friend while blindfolded? How in the...?

    1. I was all excited that I had a comment then, but it's only you!

      Yes I should probably explain that..

      It's very boring, not exciting at all. For my dissertation I need to dark adapt people, so I was sitting in a room blindfolded trying to be dark adapted so that I could be a subject in my experiment, which my good friend kindly ran for me, which is basically comparing vision in light conditions (light room) to dark conditions (dark room). If you don't adapt properly the experiment doesn't work so well, hence me sitting there and them passing me drinks etc. They also filmed me blindfolded eating Prawn Crackers... not amused.

Windows Live Messenger Officially Converted to Skype

Messenger has moved to Skype

Messenger was retired in April 2013 and is no longer available or supported on most Mac and Windows operating systems. *

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
