A little bit of life update


So, a few things have been going on in the world of abbott_56 recently, but I generally feel I'm on the way up, in terms of mood, sociability and my diet. However, I know not everyone would agree with that, and I'm still predictably being very strict about what passes my lips, possibly to the point of obsession, but I feel thanks to not counting calories and generally trying to worry a bit less, that I'm less concerned and am enjoying myself more. I do have the odd down day when it gets me very stressed, but who doesn't have an off day? And who doesn't have their shit? If there's anything I've learned from this It's that everyone, and I mean absolutely everyone, comes with some sort of emotional rubbish. And this is fine, it's just part of the human experience! I don't think I'll never not have this eating disorder and OCD now, but the key is learning to live with it and not have it diminish my enjoyment of everyday life. And though I have my blips, I feel I've improved loads since my time off work.

And actually, work is where I feel happiest at the moment. I'm really enjoying supporting a number of schools with their ICT requirements. And it's not just about fixing problems (queue telling teaching teachers to turn it off and on again!) but about innovating and investing in new tech. Just today I've been playing with touch screen student netbooks and interactive HD displays with in built Android systems and app stores, wirelessly mirroring displays and working between devices to share resources. I can't wait to involve more of the teaching staff and get them as excited about this stuff as me. 


Out of work, I'm going out with friends for a bit more and making a more conscious effort to be sociable, as well as taking time for me and the things I enjoy - reading, good TV, cooking etc. The only aspect of my hobbies that seems to have suffered is my gaming! And I don't really know why - I still love it, and I'm still increasing my collection - I recently bought Mario Maker, Yoshi's Wooly World, Bayonetta 2 and Hyrule Warriors, not to mention a couple of nice looking retro bargains (How I've not played Banjo Kazooie yet! I can't forgive myself!) I just seem to lack the motivation to actually game right now. I did sample the beginning of the original Dead Space last night, so maybe that'll spark something off. I fancy some Zombie-esque games with Halloween looming ever closer. The Last Of Us may have to be played again. Possibly Resident Evil 4 on the Wii. Zombi-U! RARGH!


I just need to make sure I keep this up. I have been feeling a bit lethargic and tired, possibly due to diet but I think it's just a shock going from time off sick to a very busy full time job. I'm just glad it's one I enjoy. I'm out tomorrow with the folks, going to see a Star Wars classical concert, which I'm very excited for!


If you know me, or even if you don't, feel free to get in touch! I would love to hear from anyone who's anyone and I'm always up for people encouraging me to actually do stuff and try new things, even if it's just a bit of online gaming. My PSN and Nintendo ID is abbott_56 and I can normally be found on that ID anywhere!
Look forward to hearing from you!
