What I love and hate about Winter in England

Hope this blog is not to strange but wanted to share with you my likes and dislikes about winter here in the good old UK.

So first of all I am not a hot weather person noooo cant stand it when the heat is more than 30c it makes me feel so uncomfortable and its not that easy cooling down either so the summers here are ok mainly 23c or 30c at a push but I would hate to live in a hotter country even though people are always saying its a different heat but its still hot no matter what, its like when people say oh its that fine rain that gets you wet emmm all rain gets you wet lol. Springtime and Autumn time are my favourite seasons because its not to hot and not to cold.

Now things have changed a little seeing as im getting closer to 50 yrs old I am starting to feel the cold more and now living by the sea its even worse with the wind being so strong as there is nothing to block the wind when it gets to strong, and the wind, the rain and cold well that’s when I say bring on Summer lol.. I guess its being human where we keep changing our minds what we like and don’t like.

I do allot of people watching and see some of the habits of various people of different ages and seeing what the older generation get away with and the younger generation its quite fascinating.

If any of you reading this have had this kind of experience please comment and let me know would be nice to chat, that kind of thing really does interest me. Also being a Vlogger I see this pattern in peoples vlogs from week to week sometimes contradicting themselves even I have done it in some of my vlogs its quite amusing especially when I think what I have said etc,.

Last week I did make a vlog and blog about my mental health as last week my anxiety was so high it was like being on a rollercoaster all week but this week so far being a Tuesday 6.20pm everything is good, im smiling and not a worry in the world but that could change in a second so I had better not think about that to much. I am also working on a new style of vlogging I want to do some short History vlogs there are plenty of places here in Dover England I could goto and film a short 10 min vlog but im waiting for better weather, I did try the other day but the wind was so strong as most places are out in the open and not covered up.

well there ya go, I had better end this blog for now, I do intend to do more blogging.

My Plan is

VLOGGING Sundays (during the week film what I can and make one video to upload every Sunday)

Blogging Mon to Fri spend more of the free time I have from vlogging less and concentrating on blogging because with words you can say more and your feelings come out better.

so thats my plan and if you want to follow my journey then please click that Follow button and see what happens in my life.

Morning Blog Tuesday 13th February 18

Good morning everyone depending on what time of day you are reading this but thought about this last night so every morning before I goto work I would write a small blog on how things are and some of the news thats on BBC ONE which I watch every morning.

So this morning there is more news on the Oxfam scandal which is looking very serious at the moment as I live and work at another charity it is very frightening knowing this kind of thing has been going on for a few years its quite disgusting, also in the news the Winter Olympics which I normally watch as I dont like the Summer Games so need to catch up allot. North Korea has prised South Korea about hosting the Winter Games which seems a step in the wright direction unless there is more to it than that.  here in the UK we seemed to have created some software that can detect Jihadist content and block it, i know technology has moved on so fast but wow. There is still a drama between Kim Catterall (who I fancied for many years in the 80’s) and star of Sex in the City Sarah Jessica Parker they both seem not to like each other much but the other star Molly Shannon has defended Sarah after Kim’s brother was found Dead and a comment from Sarah to Kim rocked the boat it seems, I have never watch the series Sex in the City but hope it all gets sorted soon.

So its supposed to be an ok day here today in Dover England but according to the weather forecast is going to be rain and Gail winds so I have that to look forward to, but at least im working in doors today in the shop working on answering the phones and the collections/deivery diary’s which im happy with. Will also try to film some vlogging footage while im in there, I need a good Time Lapse video.

So thats it for this morning its now 7.53am on Tuesday 13th February 2018 and need to get ready for work which starts at 8.30am.

I will try to blog again tonight or if not tomorrow morning.

Morning Coffee: 19th December 2017

Every morning before work I always put on BBC One and watch the news just to see what good and bad in the world. This morning the weather looks ok for this time of year lol.

So why have I started doing this Blog, well it was a spur of the moment when I woke up this morning this was the first thing to pop in my mind, something telling me to write a blog calling it Morning Coffee hoping that no one else is doing this with the same title if there is someone then I do apologise and let me know then I can change the name in Future.

Ohh yikes a train has derailed in usa and 3 dead so far just on the news as im typing this OMG the film footage that is so bad OMG

So this is what I will be doing most mornings for the time being.

I have been for the past 18 ish months a YouTube Vlogger which has helped my mental state and given me such confidence in life to chat to people and be more of a people person that I want to be, my life has been a strange work experience which I will gradualy chat about over the next blogs, dont want to bore you all to death at the present time lol there is plenty of time for that. What I love the most about Vlogging is the freedom to express what I want with only a few guidelines and more freedom than tv channels. There are some good and bad vloggers out there and I suppose its the same blogging Trolls are everywhere but to me they only belong on harry potter or Lord of the Rings but that is my view.

So as I sit here 7.27am waiting to goto work drinking my coffee its a nice warm feeling typing my thoughts and views to the world wide web and then when I get back from work I can see how many of you wonderful people have read this.

I know this most probably is a slight bit boring but it is my first one and only thought of 30 mins before I turned on this laptop so I need more thought for tomorrow mornings blog which I will pay good attention to or maybe I could do a morning and Evening coffee something to think about I guess. What do you think if you have read this far lol..

Before I end this for this morning a quick question

What is your favourite coffee or tea?

Mine is a good Mocha thats made in a certain chain of coffee shops. but at home I mainly have the packet Mochas which are ok but they do the job..

Please comment if you have read this far on what you want me to chat about in the mornings or if you think I should do a Morning and evening coffee blog

Thank you for sparing a few mins to read this..

My Week that was August 14th – 19th VLOG

There is something magical about switching from almost vlogging every day to going weekly, you realize that you can produce better vlogs by making each day different rather than realizing that your daily vlogs are so much samey.

I wish I did this weekly thing from the start but thats the point of Vlogging you always learn the best way to do things with trial and error.

Also still trying to find the perfect Thumbnail for my Vlogs, I want to set a thumbnail that people will remember when they see my vlog.

I will get there.

Sp please take a look at this vlog and head on over to my Channel and Subscribe (it does not cost a penny) I have also added some links in the description that take you to different days to watch.

Thank you for reading this and watching my VLOG

 

 

Why I am not afraid to point a camera at my face

OK so here goes as you may already know for about a year I have been Vlogging and Blogging which gets confusing at times but that’s my life and I am not going to change a thing.

VLOGGING TO ME IS (1)

I created this to show people the real reason why I spend every day Vlogging as well as keeping up a normal 9 to 5 job which is not easy.

There comes a time when you just want to quit editing and creating vlogs but then a second later you give yourself a slap, but the editing and creating is the most amazing thing as you can change a vlog in so many ways just by editing.

My Vlogs might not be up to scratch like other vloggers but then my life style is completely different and im a lot older lol.

Im still here

Hey there you good peeps.

Yep its been a week or so since I have written a blog about anything well here is the reason why.

8 years ago my mother passed away just before my 40th Birthday and every year for 2 weeks I get rather upset and want to keep away from everyone which is tricky when I work in the retail sector lol..

But now my 48th Birthday has passed (was on aug 4th) I can get on with my life well until next year. I have managed to upload some vlogs o my youtube channel which were tricky to film but managed it.  Also my work has changed a little, the shop I was supervisor for is going to be closing in January and for the last few months someone else has taken over just to see what they can do with it.  So now I am working in other shops and its a bit strange after being in one shop for 18 months.

I have also been creative recently which will be seen in future blogs on here and first thing I would like to post on here is a QR Barcode which links to my YouTube Channel.

So hope everyone is ok and if you are following my channel on here and YouTube I thank you sooooooooooooooooooo much it would be nice to get to 100 subscribers on YouTube yep I am not one of those fully paid YT just a beginner trying to find his feet

 

What I aim for in life

My name is Darren Keenan I will be 48 on August 4th 2017, I was born in the summer of 1969 (now you cant get that song out of your head).

There is so much in life I am grateful for and the main thing is my Vlogging on YouTube this is the most powerful thing I have ever done the confidence I have gained and the skills gained are amazing. So far I have around 180 vlogs I have created and uploaded but there are more challenges I need to face like thinking of new ideas for video, the difference between me and most YouTuber’s is that I have no one to vlog with so its just me but I feel I can do this.  I also have allot of challenges to face in the real world like finding a new place to live and a new job plus finding that women to complete my life (hopefully a woman who will vlog with me).

So there you go a little bit more about me if you are interested that is.

Why I Vlog?

This is a short Vlog on Youtube I made today just explaining why I do what I do and how it helps me in life, and how much it motivates me to create vlogs.

Not everyone can pick up a camera and talk to it, I must admit it takes allot of guts and confidence to do that, and when i started I never had the confidence I just decided that I will have to do it and get used to it.

This Vlog goes into a little bit more detail.
