The good, the bad and the ugly of the past week – 09 September 2016

3 min read


It’s been a pretty productive week for me. I levelled up a few times in Overwatch, edited part of a thesis, did some of my own personal writing, ate three prego rolls (and KFC dunked zinger wings), learnt to change the battery of a gate, replaced a fuse, and somehow got my pool back to blue from that awful shade of green. Yeah, a weekend break is most certainly in order! What are your plans?

      That is one game I have still never played. I know myself too well, if I’ll start I’ll have to say goodbye to my loved ones & quit my job.
