Today is my mums 70th,
Family went round hers, but kept outside with the required distance.
Not the way we planned to celebrate it, but it's nice to see most of the family making an effort and those that couldn't be there video calling in.

Tonight I Edited & Uploaded another video, that's 2 in 2 days which is pretty good.
Both Videos I tried to Speedrun through weeks and months of footage but I failed both times miserably.
(I am 6 months behind with what I've filmed to what I am editing.(meaning I am not even up to last year's Halloween night!))

Edited The Halloween night video, and before that I asked a Band if I may use their song demos in my videos and they said yes!!!

I am using their 2013 Demo and also the song 'Zoo'... but I didn't ask for the Spooky Scary Skeletons song as that may be copyrighted if I used it on the Youtube.

It's currently 11:23PM Local time, I am unsure what to do.
I am overwhelmed with the current state of my room I might go spend 5 or so minutes to once again re-arrange and so forth.
I am using the Windows 10 Laptop, I cannot be bothered closing it a putting on the Windows 7 Laptop to Edit videos but I do really want to.
Ah I don't know, I really should be using my recently bought PS3 console!

Edited another Video today which is unusual as I usually do it at night.
It's quite good although I haven't tested it out yet.
It will be my 250th current upload!!!
(But I have deleted a few over the years due to copyright and such.)

Today, I think the lack of a good nights sleep and trying to have a regular schedule is getting to me, going to bed tried, but ending up not getting to sleep, tried to go early (about 10pm) last night, 11pm, still awake, put about an hour of sleep music on, still not a sleep, roll on about half one im wide awake, decide to get out of bed and just put some "Background noise" documentaries (about buildings) roll on about 4am finally doze off on the sofa soon after, tried to get up at 9, feck no wake up at about 11 with the parrot nibbling at my face.

My bicycle is still iffy, fix one problem, another starts up, id sort another one, but I have no idea when I am going to have work coming in and I dont have a means of transport to get to any jobs on the other side of town (sod busses/trams they only make me late for things) I kinda need to get out, but I don't have anywhere to go, id walk somewhere, but everywhere I can walk to I have already done
Tidied the hell out of my flat, it's a mess again, everything is organised, but it's a mess.
Getting stressed out over things, cant do any projects when im like this

Got no problem with that at all, only thing though was I voulenteered to do that as a Job seeker years ago and rather than acctually initiate training they spent months just sticking me with mandatory job searches on Computers on their last legs in a room in the midst of the town centre which they had to pay the transport for (it was literally during the recession so there wasn't vacancies anywhere, even in the fast food places) where I was already doing the exact same thing at home with full documented proof and to this day I've still never had a FLT license and the courses they had me do for numeracy and litracey were not reconised by most companies and are now null and void anyway as they are over 5 years old, nearly 10.

Have to do a English and maths one, I might point out to them how hard it is to read all that text and most of it I'm skimming, clicking and getting right. Giving my eyes a rest from the blinding whiteness of the website (#Blackwebpagesmatter, well they need to give an alt colour scheme )

Ive been to one of them back to work scams in the past, I got put on A4E, turn up at 10am in a building till 5 for job search.
We where given a newspaper and had to wait to use the computer, one per room, room had about 20+ people.
It got really fun when in the middle of a hot summer they moved us to what could be called an "attic" no air flow unless we opened the windows. This was ok till abut midday when a fast food place started blowing out smoke from its little chimney smoking out the room. No computer in this room so we where down to just a news paper that had no job listings in it
5 flights of stairs, we wernt allowed to use the lift as one "censored head" decided to vandalise it,
I was "Technically" employed on a zero hour contract. think ive said all this before.

The owners got done for fraud
