It's Wednesday already?

Well that came too quickly for me this week.

I got a whole 166 words written since Sunday on "The Page & the Magician".

Other things done since Sunday's check-in:

- Laundry including putting it away (which is practically unheard of, but I'm trying to clean my place and keep it clean).
- Contacted my financial advisor to start talking about taxes as a writer.
- Started knitting a replacement lanyard for my work badge as I ran out of spots to staple on the original one and haven't seen any new ones to buy that weren't covered in names of beer brands.
- Completed Quiz 2 of my Coursera course "Learning how to learn".
- Evaluated 5 peers.
- Wrote a business case and a project charter for a project I'm managing at my day job.
- Took chances.
- Read some chapters in Wuthering Heights.
- Figured out next steps for me in roller derby refereeing.
- Corrected my sword grip for my martial art.
- Learned about chunking as part of learning.
- Began an email-based course called "How to become a morning person", so I can get more writing time in each day.

So I guess I got a lot done, just not on my book.

Tomorrow is a new day to try again.

Ciao,

  1. Goodness, I would say you got a lot done! Holy cow. I don't quite know how you measured the goal, "took chances", but kudos to you anyway. You're having a fantastic week.

  2. What a neat, eclectic mix of achievements. I especially liked the fine tuning of the sword hold with 'chunking' learning! :) From Sunday to Weds always seems a bit fast for me as well, but we will focus and make progress. Have a good week. Even with writing.

  5. Sounds like you've stayed pretty busy! It's so nice to keep lists of things you HAVE accomplished, isn't it? Even though you may not have accomplished exactly what you wanted, you can see that you have accomplished many things! Great job. :-)

Hanna "Semi Precious" Murphy

A legend in the roller derby community is gone. How and why, I do not know. What I do know is that many are reeling from the news, myself included. 
Hanna was known for big hits and a brilliant personality. I experienced her hits first hand as she sent me flying a number of times. Then she'd smile and make sure I wasn't hurt. 
I stumbled onto this clip on Youtube from 2012 and I think it shows Hanna as many knew her.
She was a force off the track too.
As a cofounder of the award-winning Top Shelf Distillers, she gave much to the surrounding Ottawa Valley community.  
Hanna was a relatively petite woman and it was she who taught me that I could be mighty despite my size. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if I hadn't had the pleasure and the privilege of sharing the track with her. 
I'm shocked. I'm sad. I'm upset I'll never see her or speak to her again.

Change is in the Air

I've been making a lot of changes lately around my home and some of them might seem a little odd, but they're making me happy. One thing I've done is taken apart my dining table. I never eat in there or have people over to eat. It was just another horizontal surface that would collect things like receipts, odd screws from various projects, and countless piles of paper. I had been frustrated because of the clutter it encouraged, but also because I didn't have a space for my Yamaha keyboard. I had been trying to use my keyboard in the living room, but it felt too cluttered and it wasn't sitting at the right height. With it now in my dining room, I was able to relocate my storage bench, which happens to be the perfect height to sit at while playing my keyboard. I now have much more breathing room. There is still a lot of mess to handle here yet, but I'm making solid progress. A lot of people suggest the bedroom is the place to start when decluttering, but I haven&…

Feeling My Age - ROW80 2020 R1-4

I've reached the age where my body has decided to have issues. Not constantly, but frequently. Sprinting for a bus can leave me with an injured ankle simply from using it, not from actually twisting it in ways it shouldn't move, just a fairly normal activity. I guess I need to warmup and stretch before walking to the bus now. About a decade ago, I was given a guard for my teeth due to grinding. And for the next month, I need to sleep with wrist braces because my doctor thinks I'm developing carpal tunnel. Really, I'm surprised it hasn't happened before now given my level of computer use. My mom had it years ago and had to have surgery. From reading books of all things. Anyway, he thinks if I sleep with braces on that it may be enough to keep it at bay because the nerves will get 7-8 hours of rest. After 4 days and nights, the tingling has been reducing, so I'm hopeful.
