IT Challenges – The Climb #12

Thursday 2nd February 2017 Today has been a day of IT challenges. The day job has been a little busy today and I needed to try and get a load done before I headed into town this afternoon.  Technically, this should have been an easy job.  That is unless the world of corporate IT decides [...]

Now I Have A Mace – The Climb #11

Wednesday 1st February 2017 Some days you just don’t get a lot of time to get writing done. After a late night, this morning was spent editing yesterday’s The Climb.  It was one of the longer editions I’ve posted and because it was quite political, I wanted to double check that I’d not said anything [...]

Getting Political – The Climb #10

Tuesday 31st January 2017 Today I spent a lot of time arguing politics on the internet. I’ll be honest that I’ve never been a very political person.  I think that comes from growing up pretty privileged.  I used to subscribe to the notion to never talk politics or religion but changed my opinion probably in [...]

Long Term Gains – The Climb #9

Monday 30th January 2017 Today was a bit like second Christmas I had two deliveries today.  The first was a camera device I backed on Kickstarter.  It has a lightning detector which I’m hoping to use it in America this summer to take some awesome storm photography. The other thing I got was a new [...]

Fighting Hard – The Climb #8

Sunday 29th January 2017 Today has been all about fighting. I went sparring with other swordfighters today.  Unlike last week (see The Climb #1) we had a good turnout and so I got a lot of fights in.  I’m a naturally defensive fighter so my aim for this year is to become much more offensive.  [...]

End Of A Long Week – The Climb #6

Friday 27th January 2017 Today was an early start.  I was up long before dawn, getting ready and then heading into town for a number of appointments:  gym, bank, nutrition, etc.  I got a new PB benching 60kg and started working towards full chin ups.  Given how much weight I’ve lost and some areas of [...]

The Hermit – The Climb #5

Thursday 26th January 2017 After the craziness of the start of this week, today has been a lot more relaxed.  I worked from home all day which meant that other than popping across the road to get some salad I didn’t leave the house. Sometimes I like that, shutting myself away from people.  I like [...]

A Trip To The Hospital – The Climb #4

Wednesday 25th January 2017 I said yesterday that Wednesday would be a busy day.  I under-estimated just how much. The morning was taken up by a hospital check up.  I had a biopsy done 3 months ago and today I went back for the results.  What I thought would be a routine update turned into [...]
