Hope

I was going to go out with my new camera today and give it a test run but nothing I did today could have more significance than receiving this. After a year of effective house arrest due to my health issues combined with a seemingly very specifically local resistance (other places nearby seem fine) to…

VR Workout / 15th Feb 2021 / Pistol Whip + Until You Fall

Meant to post this a couple of days ago but I had a lot on. Not a huge amount to say today. My knuckles are still a bit yellow from the “incident” last week. We’ve bought a small circular rug to stand in while playing, to try and ensure that never happens again. These are…

The Practice

I’ve always politely backed away from Seth Godin’s writing because I have a deep distrust of people who set themselves up as gurus. Especially those with a heavy marketing background like his. There’s an almost cultish sense that you get when reading reviews of his work. That said. My biggest struggle over the now decades…

VR Workout // Racket: NX + REAKT // Thursday 4th Feb

Bit of a change of scene today. I became the proud owner of a Oculus Quest 2 yesterday. Keep in mind this is after expressing deep deep misgivings about Facebook’s new policies re: Oculus, and also having cancelled my account several years ago, AND swearing I would never get one. But productivity apps that allow…

VR Workouts Feb 1 + 2

So I streamed my workout again yesterday. It’s an extra challenge. Much like running with a friend. Keeping the conversation going forces a certain pace to things I find. It also stretches me mentally as well and benefits both the workout and my public speaking skills, which I need for other areas of my life….

My Trip To Work (Stay-at-home Version)

I’m currently working through an excellent writing course on Udemy and I think I’ll start posting my favourite pieces up on this blog. That is, after all, the point. Isn’t it? This piece was a simple re-enactment of my trip to work. Which, right now, is not a long one. Excuse the selfie. I have…

VR Workout – Pistol Whip (again )

Really enjoying it now. I took a couple of days off because I wasn’t feeling great, but decided to just dive back in to it today. AND… and… I streamed it for about half an hour on twitch! It was actually really nice to get to streaming again, so I’m going to stream these workouts…

Week 2 of VR workouts begins

So this is a good sign. I’ve carried over onto week 2. I did a story (it’s weird it’s like Instagram stories but on a blog, which is supposed to be more longform? Anyway when I can’t be bothered writing it’s a quick way to record the workout I suppose)… um… start again. I did…
