Mental Health Awareness Week: Be in Your Friend’s & Family’s Corners!

As this week is Mental Health Awareness Week, I urge all of you to come together to support everyone and be in your friend’s corner.

Whether you, a family member or relative, or even a friend, suffer from a mental health condition, diagnosed or undiagnosed, I urge all of you to be in your friend’s and family’s corners by asking them how they are, how they’re really feeling, and if they suffer from a mental health condition or they have a mental health condition that has been left undiagnosed, help them and encourage them to open up, as they will know you support them, that you’re there for them, and that you’ll always provide them with the best support regardless of the mental health condition they may have, especially if they are or have gone through losing someone close to them.

Make sure to spread the word and raise awareness for Mental Health and know that you are not in this alone.

We will all experience moments where we feel down, lost and even broken, but it’s okay to feel that way.

Never be ashamed to open up, but always be in your friend’s corner and your family’s corners. Support one another and be there for one another, but most of all, open up.

Don’t man up for anyone, open up. Cry if you want to, let all that frustration out if you want to, but more importantly, be open with your real emotions and know that you’ll always be the stronger person even if you break down because you’ve been strong for too long.

You’ll always be strong, but one more thing.

Never prove yourself to anyone and always be yourself and always show real emotion, as you’ll feel so much better knowing you’ll never be in this alone and that mental health is to be acknowledged and that you deserve to seek the best help, support and treatment where possible.

I hope I’ve inspired you, and please tell me if you were inspired by my words, as I want you to know I will always care and always will take you as I see you and respect you for who you are, what you do and how you really feel.

The Blossoming Feels of Spring

Yesterday was such a wonderful day. It was nice and sunny and the temperature was just right, and I ceased the opportunity to photograph some parts of my garden. Mind you, it’s long overdue but I’ll be making sure to completely cut down my garden soon as it really needs to be cut. It’s like a forest. In terms of my garden, I did make sure to capture the beauty and essence of my garden with a forest-like approach and I had also made sure to experiment with the ISO frequently to see what ISO suited the lighting conditions best.

I am pleased with the end result I have received from these photographs, though I do feel that I need to improve better on taking photographs from a perspective where the scenery can be a mockup of a forest, but in a conceptual style that makes it more forest-like and not just as a plain garden that’s overgrown.

If you feel there are improvements I can make to my photography skills, please let me know. I would love to hear your feedback. All feedback is much appreciated.

The IMOS Bluetooth Keyboard Case for the 1st Generation & 2nd Generation iPad mini (Review)

Hello everyone, as the laptop I currently use went off to be repaired last week due to a faulty USB port, I wanted to create this review of the new iPad mini keyboard case that arrived today which I’m using now as I type, and for a good £18.00, it was a perfect choice, as this keyboard case beat’s the cost of an expensive value-based keyboard case you could find, for example, if you were to buy a keyboard case that includes the same functionality in stores such as PC World or Currys, you would be looking at a price range of around £64.99. This case that arrived from amazon.co.uk today blows the expensive and hefty price tags out of the water, and this was certainly a bargain that was worth going for.

This keyboard case also proved to be the perfect product as it also came with a USB charger, so if you wanted to charge your Bluetooth keyboard case up, you are able to. There were a choice of four colours of the same keyboard case, which I’ve listed below:

1. Silver
2. Black
3. Pink
4. Blue

For £18.00 + Free Delivery on top from Amazon, it was a great deal and was definitely a fantastic price that beats all the other top technology companies looking to compete in the global technology market.

Below, I have provided pictures of how the keyboard case looks from certain view-points, and have also provided some close-ups of the case in terms of cut-outs for general use. I apologise if a few of the photos are nearly un-viewable due to dim lighting conditions:
