A Few New Horizons

A Few New Horizons

The new Horizon game dropped last week and it’s outstanding. I’ve been really looking forward to it for a while and in the few days leading up to release, I’d got back into the swing of things by playing a little of the first game again. It has all been good fun so far and I’d recommend it to absolutely anyone.

However, the game appeared at the end of last week which finished off a first week return to work in a new job. It is like all good things arrived at once. Typical though, as all I wanted to do was play the game, but couldn’t moan at the fact that I was enjoying being at work too.

Another new thing that occurred recently, is my obsession with spreadsheet formula. I know that sounds absolutely ridiculous, it isn’t exactly anything new and far from exciting, but I’ve been working out pensions and stuff with the new job and I needed a way for my brain to process how it all worked. Trusty spreadsheet to the rescue! That is also another thing I guess that is (not) very exciting, is I actually understand how my pension works and generally how they work overall. It is something that you are never really taught at school, a bit like mortgages. Knowing what the different types are and how to make the most of things like “salary sacrifice”, has been interesting to figure out. Anyway… 🤓

What else has been going on? Oh… FPV RC cars! I definitely keep seeing them pop up more and more over the last couple years. I am very tempted to build one and it means I don’t have to worry about flying regulations like with a drone. Plus it does have a bit of a GTA feel about it… minus the explosives. I just like the idea of driving it around the village from the comfort of my living room. Not for any particular purpose, but more of a “because I can” and it could be good fun to learn and make.
