I struggle to write about myself, but this is my attempt:

First of all, let my introduce myself. I am Andrew Barnett. I am a human going about my life on a daily basis since 1985. I started blogging around the year 2007 and have tried to use it as an outlet to share my views and opinions, as well as using it to vent my frustration. I have had a number of blogs over the years, and while I deleted some of them, I have moved a few here to shedding my fat.

shedding my fat

I have been a large person for the majority of my life. As I approach time of life where starting a family becomes a priority, I realise that to ensure that I am alive for my future children, I need to be fit and healthy. Being a fat person isn’t part of being a fit and healthy lifestyle and I acknowledge that I need to do something about it.

shedding my fat is my journey to lose some of the excess fat that I carry around of a daily basis.

my cube story

I am learning to speed cube and solve the Rubik’s Cube using the Jessica Fridrich method (CFOP). I want to achieve a sub-30 time for solving the 3x3x3 cube. While I know that I will probably never go sub-15 seconds, at least learning one of the speed solving methods will give me a sense of achievement.

my cube story documents my journey to learning the methodology and reducing my solving times.
