About this blog

My general blog. I will be posting anything and everything here, trying to tag all entries relevantly. Basically this is me talking into the void rather than myself, occasionally the void will respond?

I may still create blogs for specifc purposes, but I'd prefer to only have this one blog to keep track of. Any other blogs will have a goal which can be met and terminated, such as my failed NaPoWriMo blog

Lockdown blues?

It's only been a week out of the usual school system and not going outside and socialising but it is having an impact. I feel very purposeless in general, though there are many points throughout the day were I feel great. It's the inbetween times. So I have schoolwork, chores, projects and playing & talking with family. When doing any those 4 things I feel happy, it's the inbetween time. The issue is that though I will feel happy during the period there is still a lot of uncertainty as

What do I want?

I constantly nit pick myself but I never really get any solutions. Why? Becuase I don't really know who I want to be and that's is exactly how it should be. Unfortunately this post is long but it's not really for you it's mainly for me. So the majority of blogs I have posted in here have revolved around my short comings and how to improve on them or such and such. Rereading them after taking a long break I see that they very wishy washy and mainly just about how I am bad and should get good

My Lent Plan

My Lent Plan

So I am not avidly religious, but I still follow vague Christian festivals and beliefs (to a certain extent). Anyway one of the 'festivals' that I look forward to is the one of Lent. This time allows me to develop new habits or get rid of bad habits and has done me in good stead so far: cutting down sugar, reducing Youtube time, getting me to journal and a handful of others. I would prefer for the challenge to do or make something as this gives me either a new skill (in the very least new knowle

Complacency

I'd like to add a quite entry here on complacency. I had a mathematics mock exam today and I assumed given that I do further and further pure mathematics I should be able to breeze through the exam without much prep. The issue was that it was not so easy, now the majority of the issues I faced were silly mistakes so not necessarily lack of knowledge but these slowed me down and put more time pressure on me. The mistakes occured becuase I wasn't putting as much effort into the questions as I deem

Am I lazy?

This was I question I would constantly answer yes to when I asked myself. No matter what I did during the day I would always answer 'yes'. Now for the old me This answer lead to many instances where I overworked myself, get overly stressed or feel utterly worthless. It's an issue that I have managed to resolve to a certain extent and I no longer beat myself up about not doing work I believed I should have completed. But I believe this is an issue a lot of people will have but in a diff

Baby Yoda completed

Baby Yoda completed

So after a bit over a week of intermittent crocheting I have completed my first complex plush: Baby Yoda. There is a lot of learnt whilst making the project which I will take to other projects. I very happy with how it turned out and am looking forward to completing more projects eventually creating my own patterns. But now I need to focus on my revision and mocks.

Revision and memory

If you have been looking at my todo list (which is really boring to be honest) you can see that since about Tuesday I have been mainly revising. I have mocks the start of next week (Monday 24th) - which aren't major but a good test of revision effectiveness. So I have started the arduous task of recollecting all the content I have learnt over the past year and half in the space of two weeks. This is now more of a test of memory and memory acquisition than knowledge of the subject and has got me

Baby Yoda without Robe

Baby Yoda without Robe

I completed the ears a beginning of yesterday but I didn't have access to the plush at the time so decided to wait until today*. It now no longer looks like an alien and is starting to look like baby yoda. I think the ears could have been a little more rounded, the length I think is okay. Already started on the robe this morning so hopefully the full plush will be finished by the end of today.   *The ears on their own look like triangles so there was no point in submitting an entry jus

Baby Yoda's body

Baby Yoda's body

On the continuing project to avoid doing revision or work I have completed the body of the baby yoda plush. Only the the features that will actually demonstrate that it is baby yoda are left. These are the hardest parts though not long, just some complex stitching. Anyway, it is unlikely that I will make any progress tomorrow as I have a shift but hopefully I will make some progress over the weekend to have it finished by Monday

Baby Yoda's First Arm

Baby Yoda's First Arm

So, whilst avoiding doing the tasks I have set out to do today I have completed another segment of Baby Yoda, the first arm. The doll is looking more humanoid, but there is still the ears and robe to do so at the moment he still looks like an alien.

Start of Baby Yoda

Start of Baby Yoda

So I recently started crocheting. I have been meanig to for over a year with a basic plastic hook and yarn ready to go, but I never got around to it. After seeing multiple baby yoda crocheted dolls online I thought I would give it a try. To be clear this is not the first thing I have crocheted and this is not my own pattern (I am using this pattern). I may post some pictures of the first plushes which I made, two narwhals and a whale. Before even starting these I made 25 100 chain stitches

Dealing with Colds

Quick introduction, this type of blog (Weekly) will hopefully be completed at the end of every week allowing me to discuss anything thoughts or events that have occured throughout the week. They will quite long and I don't expect anyone to read them in full but there will be a summary/conclusion at the end for anyone wanting just the answer. So over the last week I had and got over a cold, so nothing major. The interesting thing I thought about was the impact even a small cold can have on s
