I’ve been telling myself that I haven’t posted in a while. But then the other half of me was like yeah you have, just a few weeks back. So I thought rather than argue with myself, let me check for definite and holy moly Batman!! My last post was back in February!! I wish someone would have told me! Don’t worry though, I’ve definitely not lost interest in blogging. Just a lot of stuff happened in a short space of time and I’ve only just caught up with myself! I’ll digress.
The first new development is that I’ve become a Radio presenter with my good friend Dan for SG1 Radio! It’s a local Internet Radio station that has a bunch of awesome shows of all varieties. Our show is called The Dan & Kev Show (yes it did take us ages to come up with it) and it’s a 2 hour show filled with banter, songs, randomness, silliness, games, competitions, movies, trending and everything else in between. We used to have a podcast which was the same, just without the songs (damn licences) and we probably had zero listeners, but it was fun!
Shameless plug time…. You should definitely listen to our show! We love interacting with our listeners through FB Live, twitter and Instagram. You can find us at sg1radio.co.uk every Tuesday from 6pm – 8pm. Be there or yeah, don’t. Whatever. (Please do!)
I didn’t realise how much goes in to producing a radio show! It’s finding the songs, the topics to talk about, making sure it’s funny, promoting the show on social media etc. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love it, it’s just very time consuming. But I’ve always believed you only get out what you put in, and we really want this show to do well, especially for the SG1 Radio network as a whole. Some very talented people are apart of it and I feel its only a matter of time before we take it to the next level.
As awesome as the radio presenter stuff was. I did go through a little state of stress and anxiety. I’ve never had it before and it honestly hit me like a brick. But for a long time I was telling myself I was okay, putting on a smile and pretending everything was fine. But it wasn’t. I wasn’t. It’s hard to describe but it felt like I was in a room, and the room was surrounded by walls and each wall was a stress. Work, finances, future etc and they were closing in so fast that I couldn’t escape. I was on edge all the time, worried what was going to happen next. But I recognised this and knew it wasn’t right. I went to the doctors and they were brilliant. Gave me all the advice I needed. I had some time off and just focused on me and doing the things I enjoyed.
I’m now through the other side and realise how important it is to tell someone how you’re feeling. Never be ashamed. We’re not superhuman. Life is difficult. It can kick you when you’re down or high, but it’s important to never let it get the better of you. There’s always someone who will listen, remember that. Mental Health is real and it’s so so important that you look after yourself mentally as well physically.
Thank you reading guys. Will get back to some more reviews soon. I’ve seen like 70 films this year already so!
