2022 in review

Why hello there, how are we all? I hope you’re well. This blog post is about 2022 in review.

Now because of Covid, only a little has happened in the last year.

My eczema 

My eczema has gone and comes back several times last year. It’s currently back with a vengeance.

My #rockulele

Late last year, I started using my uncle’s soundboard and microphone. I was inspired by a good friend, a fellow brain tumour warrior, Rudy Fischmann, who wanted to collaborate with me. I now use the soundboard every week. 

Also last year, I started my decades series of songs. I started with the 60s rock songs and alternating between rock and soul/RnB songs slowly built myself up to the 

Also last year, I received a keyboard for Christmas. Every weekend, I’ve been using the Simply Piano app and every other day, I’ve been using the Simply Sing app.

My freecodecamp course/my work

I’ve been stuck on one of the tasks “build a calculator” for a while. So I asked my friend Joe for help and he sent me a list of 40 javascript tutorials. Even before my diagnosis, I’ve struggled with javascript. As a front-end developer, I always preferred jQuery, But that was over 7 years ago. Now that times have changed and people are only hiring React developers.

Bhangra Blaze/Earls of Uke

Bhangra came back on in the middle of last year but in a new area. It was in Wyken Community centre but now it’s in Diamond Dance Studios. I’ve also started re-attending my Earls of Uke get-togethers only once a month. 

My daily exercise

In the middle of last year, I noticed that my weight was going up. So that’s when I decided to use my fixed hula hoop every day, and alternate between my ab swing and lifting dumbbells. That came to a stop at the start of this year when I started the Six Pack Revolution program, a 70 day diet and exercise regime. 

That’s it for now. Once again, I just want to thank a few people. Firstly, I would like to thank my mum, dad, sister, and my Naughty Mamaji, for being by my side, throughout everything. I would like to thank everyone from BTS for sharing this with the community. I would like to thank Kanika, Shirley, and everyone at Carers Trust for giving me the confidence to share my story and I would like to thank Joe for motivating me to get back on the horse. And I would like to thank everyone at the hospital, my family and friends, and everyone I’ve met on this journey.

Next time, I’m going to talk about 2023 – Q1 in review.  Please feel free to leave a comment and as always, if you buy something from Amazon, through the blog, or click on an advert, 100% of the money that I get goes to charity.

Thanks and take care
