Fortifying Friday - Much to Do

[caption id="attachment_4712" align="alignleft" width="300"]tgif Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption]

I have a large list of things to do. Possibly even too much.

On the writing front, I have to finish a short story. I'm a quarter of the way through. It's fun to write despite it veering away from my original plan. Actually, I don't think any story I've written has stayed on course.

I have a ton of French to do, but I'm really not wanting to bother with it at all.

My school laptop is supposed to arrive today. I have a deposit to put on my seat for school, but am waiting for the transfer to happen from my investment account. Working on the financial plan for school with my adviser. I also have taxes to start. Ugh.

I need to continue cleaning my house. Much progress was made on this as the building superintendent had to visit the other day to help me fix a plumbing problem that didn't end up getting fixed. All the cleaning I did until midnight left me pretty tired the next day. I still have some dishes and a whole lot of laundry to do. I'm thankful I ran into one of the condo board members the other day as she clued me into a giant bin to take my cardboard to instead of the stinky garbage room where the small bins are usually overflowing. It's a bit of a walk, but way better otherwise.There's a bunch of things I want to do instead of the rest. I have novels to write. I really want to get back to The Blood Waitress Club. Scion is also nagging me.

I have video games and musical instruments to play. Skyrim and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood are calling to me. So is Uncharted 2. I had to take a guitar break when I cut my finger, but I also want to get back to playing trumpet and learning keyboard as well as studying music theory more deeply.

I have martial arts to practice. I want to get my skill back in karate, but don't remember most of the kata :(

*Sigh* I guess whining about this isn't getting me anywhere, so I better just go work on the stuff.Have a great weekend :)

Salut,

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. 
R.I.P. #10.

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.
