Left my crab traps in overnight, went back out to get them this morning and 3 of the 4 traps had octopuses in them…chucked them back as I could be bothered with all the prep work to get them ready for the BBQ.

Since getting my ADHD assessment the other day, everything has been turned up to 10,000 in my brain. I’m remembering all sorts of random incidents as far back as a 5 year old and now they all make sense to me, the incident, the reaction, the fallout…in a way it’s actually made it even more difficult to quiet my brain, but this is the pathway to a full diagnosis and treatment.

It’s just going to be a tough journey, hopefully a better me on the other side.

Started down the pathway of getting my self-diagnosed ADHD formally diagnosed and treated, it’s at a point now where I’m either constantly depressed or overachieving and on top of the world. There is little to no middle ground anymore.

I’m in a self-destructive mood today. This should be fun.

New PB (78cm) flathead from out in the lake this morning…sent it back to fight another day

Do the work, don’t take shortcuts, you’ll likely run aground. ⚓️

A small, approx. 4-5ft long, Hammerheadd Shark I caught this morning off of Moon Island, just off Swansea Heads.

Lad scored yesterday in a trial match, as a goalkeeper! Last time he scored was in Under 9’s before he became a GK, he’s in 15’s now. 🦅

🎥 Watching: The Running Man

In a dystopian America, a falsely convicted policeman gets his shot at freedom when he must forcibly participate in a TV game show where convicts, runners, must battle killers for their freedom.

Bit of a random selection tonight…

Have spent the past 2 days in and out of 1Password going through all my accounts here, there, and everywhere, and changing my passwords, turning on 2FA wherever it’s offered, and even deleting old accounts to services that I no longer use. Feels good.

It’s January 2024, a new year, and the perfect time for me to dust the cobwebs off of my blog…for approx 2-3 weeks before I fall out of routine posting 😝

Nothing much biting today, at least the weather was nice. ☀️

One of this mornings keepers, a 29cm Yellow Fin Bream, caught in Lake Macquarie.

Bought myself a boat.

Dear Neighbours,

I apologise for singing such hair metal classics like Alice Cooper - Poison, Black Sabbath - Crazy Train, Motley Crüe - Kickstart My Heart, Warrant - Cherry Pie, and Van Halen - Jump, amongst others, at the top of my voice this morning…


Second last football weekend of the season. All our Boys Youth teams are on today, except the Under 18’s who play tomorrow, away at Belmont Swansea United, aka BelSwans. We’ll need to win at least 3 from 5 games today to secure our place in the top 4 of the Club Championship…big day!

Got a session with my psychologist today, last couple I’ve just walked in and rambled for 45 minutes, they were not productive sessions… Today I’m going in with a topic, identity, specifically self-identity, as it’s something I’ve struggled with since I was a kid.
