I'm in my early thirties and I don't blog half as much as I'd like to. I'm constantly working on fixing this, though nothing ever bloody comes of it. Let's just see how we go...

Welcome To The Internet’s Most Infrequently Updated Blog

Wow, it’s been a while. I am useless. There’s a few things I want to write about in the weeks to come: politics, television, games… But then I always say this and then leave it months before writing anything at all, usually another empty promise of posts to come.

So later on I shall be taking some time to write. And it’ll be up here soon. Days. Not week, not months. I apologise again for the gaps. As you were.

The Struggle

Oh dear. I mean, I know days like today come along. I also know they go. I’ll be fine, but today has been a proper struggle. I feel drained. Physically exhausted. I feel foggy and sore and my eyes are burning. I feel weak and I feel irritable. I’ve been relatively happy; that’s the strangest thing about this stupid disorder. I’m not sad. I’m depressed. I’m having a depressed day. It’ll pass…

…I’m going to start using this blog for more personal posts again, I think. It’s mine, after all. You don’t have to read it. You probably aren’t, are you? I could say “fuck” and nobody would know. FUCK. see? Anyway. As you were.

‘YEARS AND YEARS’ CONTINUES TO IMPRESS

2019_20_tv

Russell T Davies’ latest powerhouse of a show, Years And Years, reaches what promises to be a thrilling conclusion next week. The last five weeks have been a terrifying and eye-opening ride through a possible (and plausible) near future. A family saga that goes forward at breakneck speed.

It’s a wonderful show, full of great performances and surprises aplenty. Once the series ends next Tuesday I’ll recap and review the whole first run. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend you catch up on BBCiPlayer as soon as you can.
