This is the first of many essays about different topics I will be writing about. While I enjoy ranting on Tweaked for your Pleasure, I also do enjoy just writing about stuff and with this I am going to split my time between them.
Transport is one of the most vital things for anyone in our modern world as it gets us to places of employment, education, social hangouts and much more but to myself one of the best reasons for transport is recreation and with this in mind I am going to write about my favourite method of transport – riding a bicycle.
Many years ago beyond a number I do not wish to count, I learnt how to ride a bicycle with my oldest sister. I still remember the massive park where I was riding my first blue / yellow coloured scheme bike and I still remember smashing between the two slits on the park’s fence which enforced just how important wearing a helmet is.
I still remember riding the same bicycle to school regardless of the weather and I remember doing this the same even to college when the need came up. I remember with a former friend of mine as we cycled around Lincolnshire using a bicycle which would not change gear and I remember cycling once again around Rutland Waters with a good friend of mine and getting lost and causing quite a panic.
What I can not remember however is when I stopped riding a bicycle for something I enjoyed doing so much it just stopped being such an important thing. It no longer became a needed method of transport to get around as public transport or a motorcycle became the only way needed to get around but there is something missing that a bicycle brings.
It could be that riding a bicycle simply reminds me of a more simple time but I don’t think it is that. I think it’s mostly down to being lazy and finding a quick solution to problems which is something I have always done and something I think stopped me from enjoying reaching a solution rather than simply going for the quickest way.
Going back to cycling some of the many things I will remember is the wind blowing on myself, the sound of the countryside and the overall enjoyment of just spending some time away from everything and everyone with little care in the world.
Cycling has always been a wonderful way to mentally repair oneself and it is also a fantastic method to lose weight which is the main reason why I will be taking up cycling once again and with any hope upon the day I return to Israel, I will enjoy cycling around everywhere but for now, I am going to get back on the bike and just drift away into the horizon.
When I first heard about Palm creating a “companion” phone that was designed to work with your main phone I could not help but laugh at the idea as after all if you have your phone in your pocket then why do you care about having another phone on you?
Well, I said the same originally but honestly after using the Ytesky Qmart Q1 for quite some time now I am actually for the idea. For anyone that read Tweaked for your Pleasure I think it is safe to assume you likely use your mobile phone in order to send an email, send a few messages on Discord, play a few games and such and not actually use the mobile as a phone “that” much and that is fine, that is just the evolution of mobile phones.
It’s a common fact that the more times you do something you slowly get better at doing those things when you gain more experience but sleeping is one of those things that oddly does not work out like that.
When you think about it when you are in your youth you easily sleep just about anywhere you want and when you want but as you grow older sleeping becomes a much harder thing to do.
With most thing in life the more times you repeat something and practice you end up getting better at it but sleeping is one of those things you need to go out of your way to physically alter many things like diet, lighting and other “sleep health” stuff just so you can get more restful sleep where otherwise other things would just improve over time.
Although I suppose its worth saying that if you are reading this and having a problem sleeping there are a couple of things you can do such as having a dark room, going to sleep at the same time each day and just using your bed to sleep. I could also comment on dieting and exercising but I imagine if you got sleep problems you already looked it up online.
But for everyone else I’m sure you can remember a time where you used to sleep easily and then other times where you just could not sleep at all for some reason. But while I might joke around a bit on this website but seriously we spend over a third of our lives sleeping and we never get better at it in theory.
Get a grip sleeping and let us get better with practice already.
So I was reading the Daily Prompt earlier this morning after finding it on a website I read quite often (am hoping to update Tweaked for your Pleasure quite a bit more) and saw something that caught my eye – being lazy about learning. Continue reading →
This post relates to the massive download months ago – I only just got around to finishing writing it!
Well fuck me.
… there is no plan be is there?
For anyone that may follow my fan page on Facebook, I had a very massive “technical” problem which involved every single of my websites to go down and to make matters even worst … all of my backups ended up either not working, disappeared or out right bullshit. Well this is the problem I had lately as after the issue I had with the system, all of my backups were basically useless and although thankfully I was able to restore them using different methods (thank you recovermywebsite.com and Comcure!), I would have been screwed if they were not there.

When people start a blog, Lets Play or whatever they normally start doing so because they enjoy it and not start simply for the sake of profit and if you are lucky people will notice what you do and join you with what you are enjoying doing. If you are unlucky then you either carry on doing it because you enjoy it or give up and move to something else.
Over time you will start to get better and better (only have to look at Tweaked for your Pleasure’s archive) and with this you will aim to become better and better. This could mean a better writer, editor, gamer and what not but regardless you will aim to improve on it and this is what will define you. Continue reading →
