PC is back

fireteam
Back on PC with the Fireteam.

I searched for a local Eastern Suburbs PC repair shop and found Eddie of Eastside Computers in Coogee, just up the road from Maroubra. He was quick to reply to my messages and came to my place to pick up the case and once fixed he dropped it back off for me too.

I had to replace the motherboard and chip but everything else was good. Lesson learned though, from now on I must clean out the PC of dust at least a couple of times a year.

I did spend a bit of time playing Destiny 2 on the Playstation when the PC was down. 30FPS is just so janky and the really tight FOV is ridiculous. What’s worse is the insanely slow loading times for simple things like loading the character screen. PVP was a bit of fun though. I play D2 on PC with a controller which I feel has given me an edge when playing competitive on the PS4 Pro against other controller users.

Just an update

rise_progress

I’ve been in a pretty shit place lately.

Super unmotivated. Smoking a lot (rolling tobacco not weed), drinking a lot, starting to bail out of family get-togethers and shoots too, not showering for days at a time, watching Netflix (Animal Kingdom, it’s great!) and gaming a lot too.

I’m still stubborn AF when it comes to my medication. Trying to stick to 25mg a night (I was at 300mg when I first started early last year) but I find that when I up it to 50mg/night I actually wake up singing and wanting to put Rufus on in the morning to start my day, but it quickly fades away.

This morning I booted up my PC to play some Destiny 2 and bam, it glitched out and the motherboard went up in a puff of smoke.

Maybe it’s a sign.

I’ve spent most of today working on my charcoal (using burnt trees from the fires) piece for the RISE exhibition instead. It’s not been easy, but I’m in the zone for sure. I’m not exactly in a confident place right now, but the music is up and I’m getting my hands dirty.

To anyone else having a shit time right now. I’m with you! Not sure if it ever gets any better, but distractions and good music on full blast help to break up the rhythm and that’s a good thing.

Always happy to share process: I’ve finally got started on my piece for RISE EXHIBITION – I’m only a couple of hours in but it’s been amazing using charcoal from the burnt trees as a medium. All proceeds from the art works sold is going out to to charities supporting the firefighters, people that lost their homes & wildlife. #RiseExhibition #RiseAustralia

Happy Birthday Mum

As unattractive as it may seem to all the single ladies out there. I’m a proud mummies boy.

Many years ago I was with my long-term girlfriend when an old wise taxi driver asked me a trick question; who’s cooking is better? My girlfriends or my mums? I replied with the wrong answer. My Mums!

The bible states that you’re not meant to worship idols, but in truth my mum is my hero, she is my idol.

When she was young she rebelled against her parents wishes, and moved to Australia to start a new life. She inspired her sisters to move too. In fact she’s inspired so many of us to just be better people, just like her.

A couple of years ago life got the better of me and I hit rick bottom. Mum was there for me, every day, to help me pick up the pieces. Her love is truly unconditional love, she’s always accepted me for who I am, and has always supported me in what makes me happy.

I’m not religious, but I used to say that if everyone in this world respected the 10 commandments, then the world would probably be a better place. I now think that if everyone could be a little more like my mum, then the world would be a great place.

So please join me in raising your glasses. Here’s cheers to a great human being, my best friend, my mum.

Charcoal

charcoal_rise_exhibition

So you may shoot me with your words
You may cut me with your eyes
And I’ll rise
I’ll rise
I’ll rise

Got delivery of a bag of burnt trees from the fires which I’ll (and all the other artists invited) use to make an artwork for RISE Exhibition. Really excited to be working with charcoal (it’s been a long while!). Really honoured to be a part of such an amazing show!
