2024 – Q1 in review

​​Why hello there, how are we all? I hope you are well and cosy. This blog post is about 2024 Q1 in review.

My eczema

I’m still taking baths, but they are incredibly a lot shorter now. I’m now down to once a week and at a max of 25 minutes.

Recently, my dad went to India and got some medicine and cream for my eczema. The original cream and medicine that he got me a few years ago. Thanks to this, my body is almost clear of scabs and any signs of eczema.

However, I thought about experimenting with my diet and had goji berries with my breakfast. This has led to my eczema appearing underneath my beard and moustache. 

My #rockulele videos

Last month was local bands, where I got three acts, including the Hindi song,  from Coventry and two acts from Birmingham. This month is a pro wrestling theme, where I take famous pro wrestling themes and do a cover of them. When it comes to the Hindi song, I’ve asked my uncle and auntie to do a translation. Next month is reggae songs.

I’ve recently used a new iPad app to get my electronic effects. I used to use Tonebridge but that’s no longer supported. I now use an app called Bias fx 2. The main difference between the two is that Tonebridge has plenty of presets dedicated to songs whereas Bias fx 2 has a fully customizable setup. Sadly, I’m not an expert in guitar sound effects and there are no online resources for me to find out.

In the future, I’m planning to do a flip-flop month, where I play rock songs in a pop style and play traditional easy-listening songs into rock and metal songs.

Me working

Unfortunately, I’m still not working, I’m slowly progressing through the list of tutorials that Joe sent me a couple of years ago

My weight

Thankfully, I now weigh in at 60kg, which is too low for me. I now lift dumbbells 6 times a week. I try and do shoulders, twice a week, arms, twice a week and chest and legs, twice a week. 

My podcast/YouTube channel updates

I’ve recently asked ChatGPT to come up with a name for a podcast with someone who suffered from 6 brain tumours, a YouTube channel for someone who plays the electric ukulele and an umbrella company for the list. It came up with several names and I have chosen the names.

I’ve also asked ChatGPT to create some line drawings of a brain and ukulele, for me to use as logos for my hobbies.

My health update

I had an MRI a few weeks ago. This MRI was different from my normal ones because they did the brainstem and a full rotation. I got the results and everything is stable.

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, my Naughty Mamaji and my Masi(auntie), 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 my 2024 – Q2 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 I get goes to charity.

Thanks and take care
