Really? by Neil Blake

I've always taken public transit to and from work, especially once I realized how much less stress, expense, and in Vancouver at least, traffic I would have to deal with. Taking transit has always meant there was a lot ore walking in my life. When I was working as a software developer, I'd be sitting at a desk all day which meant that I wasn't getting a lot of exercise. 

Now that I am a lot more conscious of my health and my body, I set myself a daily step count of at least 13500 steps a day. I use my Apple Watch Activity App and Carrot Rewards app (if you want to earn more reqards, please use my user code "neilb6398") to keep track of all my step numbers everyday. 

Once I saw that I could earn Airmiles and Aeroplan miles just by walking, I'd joke I was going to walk to Hawaii! The only problem is I doin't think my shoes are going to make it. If i haven't somehow punctured a whole through the upper of the shoe like I did with my last brand new pair of Adidas shoes. Hopefully the shoe repair guys can fix them up real nice!  

Midnight Sun by Neil Blake

I saw a preview of this movie the other day, and was just so hooked, it’s crazy!  

Now, I’ll totally be the first to admit that it isn’t very hard at all to make me cry these days, but the other day I was watching TV and then the above trailer for Midnight Sun started to play. Ever since I made the greatest mistake I have ever made in my entire life, I have really been into hearing about amazing love stories and the people in them.  

Midnight Sun is about a girl with a rare illness where she is sensitive  to the sun, and so has to stay inside when the sun is out. When she very rarely does go outside, she keeps running into a boy who plays guitar.out on the street. It just looks like an amazing tear jerker of a film. I can’t wait to see it!!

Another thing that I really want to see is how she lives and deals with some of the problems that come along with being so sick at such a young age with a rare disease that aots of people don't really understand, like me and my MS.

I'll post a short review of it here first.

Fifty Shades Freed by Neil Blake

A friend of mine took me out to see a movie recently, which I hadn't done in a long time, as I really have a hard time staying awake long enough to watch an entire movie these days, especially at night. We went to go see Fifty Shades Freed, and since it had been a while since it had been released and it was the last show of the day on a weekday, the theatre was fairly empty, and now that i've seen it, I can totally understand why. It's just terrible movie, unless you're really into some fairly good sex scenes of course. I did read the first book and saw the movie in the series called 50 Shades of Grey, but definitely lost interest and started watching the movies and stopped reading the books. After having seen the latest movie, all I have left to say it "Wow! Ami ever glad I didn't waste more times with the series!
