I figured it would be time to post some updates since I have deleted Facebook about 2 weeks ago I haven’t really had any “statuses” so to speak. I still however am on Google+, Twitter, Instagram and SnapChat.
So what has been happening? I’ve been spending a lot more time with Chell. We sat down and had a good chat, put everything out there on the table and moved forward, which has been good. I’ve got to see the kids a lot more than I did previously, and have the family all under one roof. I’ve been communicating with her a lot more, which has made things easier and I have been more open.
I got rid of my Galaxy S2 and bought a Sony Xperia Z which is amazing. I also bought a motorcycle and got my licence. I ended up getting a red CBR250R and pimped it out with hidden red LED’s which glow nicely at night. I’ve been riding a lot, and love it! It is so much cheaper in fuel than running the commodore, which is a bonus.
Since not having Facebook, I guess I have been a lot quieter and haven’t really talked to many people as much. If you feel like I have left you in the dark, I am sorry. If you have my number don’t hesitate to message and say hi, shoot me an email, send me a snapchat or something.
Hope all is well.
So I have had my Xperia Z for awhile now, and have been running a custom rom since day one.
I used Kernel Tuner to change governor to wheatley, scheduler to row, enable fast charge and undervolt. I have the CPU set from 192Mhz – 1242Mhz. I then ran the following Stability Test’s.
- Classic Stability Test for 30 minutes.
- CPU+GPU Stability Test for 20 minutes.
- Scaling Stability Test for 20 minutes. (192Mhz – 1512Mhz @ 15 seconds per frequency).
There was no freezes or reboots.
As for undervolting, my CPU is a “PVS-3″. Taken from this post you can check what PVS revision your CPU is.
The Qualcomm (S4 Pro) SoC has 4 different variant. Slow, Nominal, Fast and Faster (0, 1, 2, 3) . Faster variants can undervolt a lot lower than the rest, or it should already be pre-configured automatically at a lower voltage like the Nexus 4, so some Xperia Z will have less heat and perform better in battery life. For example, for nominal variants, they might only be able to undervolt around -100mV while faster variants can undervolt around 175mV – 250mV.

So as of late it seems that things just get more and more complicated. I hurt people I care about and my actions haven’t seemed to be the best for myself or those involved. So what I am going to do is look at changing these things, improving myself and trying to be more positive and follow the law of attraction “positive thoughts breed positive results”.
So I am going to try and stick to a couple of key points, some will be challenging for me. Some people may not believe I can do them or achieve them. In the end I am going to focus on them all and if the law of attraction is right, I will get positive results.
This is one thing I am going to work on. I need to be honest with myself, those I care about and those that care about me. I believe this one will bring the most positive results if I execute it correctly.
I need to focus more on the people that are important to me. If I can do this and they can see that I am making an effort to be in their lives then in return they will want me in theirs. The ones that are negative or have adverse affects on my life I have to remove.
I need to focus more on life in itself. These are the important things or “small things” in life, this can also tie in to the previous two points as well.
Another thing I need to consider is my career or job. A job may pay well, but money isn’t the main focus (which I have to learn), money cannot bring you true happiness, it may bring you things that you are happy with (possessions e.t.c.) but I have to learn to be happy with myself and those that are important to me. So I may have to look at focussing on other avenues in which will make me happier which also ties in with the previous points too.
I need to take control of my life. This certainly wont happen instantly but if I try and do each of the points in the post one step at a time I will eventually regain control. Life is not a race and I have to start small. Maybe give up smoking, get fitter or drink more water. It doesn’t meant changing my whole life, it just means setting some goals and working towards them. If I fail, then pick it back up and continue.

I don’t know where to begin, how do you move on? I’ve spent almost 6 years with an amazing woman who has always put myself and our children first and has never done anything wrong to our relationship. I’ve made some big mistakes in the past, and yet she always was the one to stick by me.
We had a Son together, we got married and we should have been happy. Instead we lost that passion. I can honestly say that I do still love her and I probably always will. I’ve never known someone to stick by through thick and thin, yet she was the one and for some reason, I kept pushing her away.
Now it’s got to the point where we think we should move on, but how do you do that? I have so many happy memories, I still think about her, want to just talk to her, want to see her but it’s hard to not do that. She was my best friend and I just took everything we had for granted. I’m stuck, I don’t want to move forward because I am afraid. I’m afraid that if I make that decision to move on that means letting go yet I want to keep holding on. I don’t want to lose what we had for good, but it is also hurting us by holding on.
