Life After Comiccon

Though I'm quite tired, I'm already thinking about next year's Comiccon.

Strange thing...  a few days before Comiccon I had this dream that I was throwing rocks at Ursula the Sea Witch from the Little Mermaid... then at Comiccon this lady cosplayed her in the masquerade. She did a fabulous job. In throwing rocks I may have been attempting to put an end to evil within myself according to a dream dictionary. Weird coincidence at any rate.

The clarity I received in talking to friends during Comiccon led to me ending something that wasn't working for me. As always I'm having mixed feelings, but I know it is the right thing. It was impacting my life negatively in too many areas, including my writing.

Back in the world of the day job we are defining core values at my company, which is exciting. I'm on the committee helping to make it happen. I'm planning a post to talk about my own values since it's on my mind lately.

At writer's group tonight we started talking about group goals for the future and supporting each other, which go hand-in-hand. I'm excited! We'll delve into it more in the coming months. Lots of discussions and decisions to be made, I think.

Current Goals (not necessarily in order)

1. Finish a short story I'm working on for a contest and enter it before week's end.

2. I need to get The Blood Waitress Club up on Smashwords. First it needs more editing.

3. 3-Day Iaido seminar in Guelph. I need to alter and wash my outfit for this. The top has been altered as of this evening. My belt is slightly short, so I need to add to it. I need to slightly shorten my hakama (special pants).

4. Make this website of mine mobile-friendly.

5. Finish the second draft edit of The Page & The Magician.

6. Start a YouTube channel.

7. Continue learning guitar.

8. Select a costume for next year's Comiccon to cosplay.

As usual, I have no trouble keeping busy. Off to sleep. Good night :)

Ciao,
R~

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an

Catching My Breath - 2020 ROW80 R3-C6

 I've tried writing this post numerous times, but I needed a break. A long one. I've been mega stressed out and depressed, so I have been taking a little breather. I was feeling broken, but the experience has forced me to slow down and relax. I've gotten some help including medication for it and I am feeling much better. I'm feeling like myself more with each passing day. I'm sleeping better and have energy again.  I have been reducing my social media time. Especially Facebook. Actually, I enjoy Instagram much more. FITNESS I've been scooting and I'm getting back into skating. It's often hard to get out because of rain. Eventually, I want to do tricks on my skates. This skater may not be in derby anymore, but she's still a skater ;) I have a ton of plans for cross training once winter is here. I'll be hitting up outdoor rinks if they are available, but I'm also going to work on off skate skills that will help me get to doing tricks later on.
