Just a couple will do

Maybe it was a dream. After my first 1, chilling, by myself too this time which was good, I usually have 5, 6, even 7 but this time it only has a couple. Was it even worth it? I was told no, but,  Fuck Yeah!  The experience doesn’t last as long, maybe 2-3 hours. It’s not as intense obviously but it’s enough to get you that wavey feeling. The perspective was there, but not as shootingly fast. I would be outside of m body but exiting at a slow jogging space as opposed to Ferrari speed.

My first Muay Thai fight

I started the day focused, listening to my Fight 1 playlist trying to get myself pumped up on the bus. The streets were empty, and again it really did feel like I was alone. I’ve felt like this whilst training sometimes too, the whole process of preparing for a fight is at times very isolating, but when I stepped in the ring I understood why. It’s just you and your opponent, it felt like there was definitely no turning back from the moment I took the first step over the threshold and left my house. Game Time!

The Affair – review (Spoilers)

An affair isn’t just an affair according to the show affair. I’ve weirdly enjoyed this dark romantic tv series with Dominic West (Noah) and Ruth Wilson (Alison) as the central characters, juggling infidelity with self identity crisis’s . West’s character is married with four kids and meets Wilsons character on a family holiday break. Wilson’s character struggles with self doubt and tragedy. He’s a writer, she’s a waitress and they fell in love. Continue reading The Affair – review (Spoilers)

The Handmaids Tale – Review and Spoilers

An ode to the misogynistic past of global society. How we have treated women in the past is abhorrent, and the handmaids tail is a unrelenting reminder of the gender split mindset of our world which is displayed in this amazing dystopian tv series. The show explores a world where fertility rates drop significantly across America resulting in babies and fertile women becoming a precious commodity. As this happens a deeply disturbing ideology sets in which gains political traction where all the fertile women are to be rounded up for breeding purposes.  Continue reading The Handmaids Tale – Review and Spoilers

My first Muay Thai Interclub

I’ve been given a date for my first Muay Thai interclub. I have 5/6 weeks and currently weigh 84kg which is way too heavy to fight. I’m not sure how much weight I can lose in the time but I will try for 3-5kg and take it from there.  I’m not going to eat bread, 1 bar of dark chocolate a week, eat less meat, drink more water, take some bitters and  try and run 3-4 days a week as well as x4 minimum Muay Thai training. I’m pretty excited because this has been something I’ve been thinking about for months. Continue reading My first Muay Thai Interclub

It’s more than just music

I recently listened to a video on the Vox channel on Youtube called ‘rappers deconstructed: the best rhymers of all time’. It was interesting to see such a mechanical approach to the analysis of hip hop music. The narrator described her appreciation for the artist MF Doom and started  breaking down the lyrics of his songs. I was impressed by the intellectual acuity showcased in his rhymes as I’ve tried to listen to his music a couple of times and I’ve never liked it.

The Candace Owens Spatial Divide

After doing a little digging I’m happy to see that Candace Owens is still trying to empower people, speak truth and change minds.  I have listened to a lot of her anti-democratic stance and as a black woman in America spouting the kind of truths she does, she’s no only brave but has some very good points to make.  Continue reading The Candace Owens Spatial Divide

Tony Ferguson Vs Anthony Pettis – UFC 229

At one point in the fight he pulls down my left hand and hits me with something….honestly I didn’t know what it was until I watched it back on the replay but now I know, it was a right 90 degree elbow and it sliced me good and proper. At that point I realised how much pain I was in, I mean, I was cut the fuck up, my energy was gone and all my major organs were crumbling.  Continue reading Tony Ferguson Vs Anthony Pettis – UFC 229
