Autumn 2016

Hello, Autumn is my favourite time of year. October my favourite month of the year. I love all the colours of the falling leaves, the weather isn’t that cold yet and I love Halloween. 

For Halloween this year I went out on the Saturday night, but didn’t get dressed up as it was a bit of a late decision to go out. I was expecting to see a lot of girls dressed as Harley Quinn but only saw about six or seven and one of them was a man ha. It was a good night though and didn’t get home until the early hours of Saturday morning. 

In the Autumn time I normally go out to Saltwell Park and take photos of the scenery, but I have only been a couple of times this Autumn. Some of the photos I’ve posted here are the results of a trip there today. I took a photo of some pumpkins outside of a local supermarket. They had huge boxes full of pumpkins I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many before. I also caught a few good photos of squirrels in the park. I got a good shot of one on a park bench which I liked and have used. Next year I’m going to venture out more and get some more photos, because last year I took a lot more.

Zippo Tricks And Videos 

Hello, one of the things I like to do is make videos. I used to smoke and I bought a Zippo lighter. I learned some tricks along the way and decided to make some videos. 

I’ve always liked learning tricks and doing them. Magicians have me baffled at times and I always like to learn how they do the tricks. Also do them myself if I can learn. I like learning pub tricks to they can win you some money in bets. The first trick I learned was Zippo Tricks #1 Pants Strike you can watch the video in the link. It’s on my YouTube channel and it’s hit over 12k views, pretty cool right? It’s a pretty easy trick to do and is easy to learn. I’m going to do another video soon and some more tricks. I might even talk on the next video and maybe reveal how it’s done, but then again a good magician never reveals his tricks. 

I’ve also posted another couple of videos of my friend dancing on a night out. He’s mad when he has a drink and goes for it on the dance floor. He had a dance of against a goth looking dancer in this video Charlie Vs Goth: The Dance Off  It’s an old video but shot on my old mobile phone, but it’s still a laugh. 

Stay tuned to my YouTube channel for more videos soon.

Lead Us Not Into Temptation 

Hello, I’ve been single for a while now and although sometimes I think I would like to meet someone I actually love being single. You’re just free to do what you want and date who you want. 

There’s loads of temptation whether it be on a night out or at work wherever. It’s hard to meet a girl you actually like or who likes you. Sometimes it’s never simple, you can be friends with a girl and end kissing or sleeping with them on a night out and that either makes are breaks that friendship. There’s dating apps that can be good or bad depending who you meet. I’ve had good dates and bad dates from using Tinder. I’m not a fan of it to be honest I’d rather meet someone and see if you click. There’s nothing better when you just click with a girl. Adventures in dating can be fun and I’m always game for a night out so it’s fun meeting new people. There’s always the disappointment of being rejected by a girl you like to which isn’t fun, but you just to roll with the punches. Shy bairns get nowt as the saying goes. If you like someone you’ve got to go for it. What have you got to lose?

One of the problems of being single though is when going out with couples. I’ve recently watched Trainspotting again and the club scene where Renton and other single lads are standing alone dancing looking at girls while there friends are all coupled up is what it’s like. You’re either third wheeling are looking to hook up. That scene totally nails it just like it nails everything in that movie. Also the soundtrack is amazing and the song playing in the club is Temptation, totally fitting and a great song. Watch it here… Trainspotting Club Scene Another problem and danger of going out when you’re in that drunken haze and you feel the need to pull. You sometimes lower your standards and go for anyone like Renton does in that scene. Which can lead to an awkward moment the next morning. Another thing that’s dangerous is Snapchat or your phone in general when you’re out. I always check my phone after a night out to see if I’ve messaged anyone or snapped them. It’s embarrassing but funny reading them back the next morning if you have. 

That’s the single life in the modern world today though, so be careful and smart out there if you can… “Keep us from temptation, lead us not into temptation…” – Heaven 17 Temptation
