Merry Monday - 2017 Civic Weekend

[caption id="attachment_4711" align="alignleft" width="300"]merry_monday Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption]

Well, my weekend has been a bit of a roller coaster of emotions. Sometimes I get extremely frustrated. Especially if my B12 levels get low. The frequency that I curse rises the lower my B12 levels are. When they get low, I get upset easily and feel really angry. It sucks. What sucks even more is somehow always forgetting that's what's making me upset until it gets bad. I had been slightly reacting to the cherry flavoured sublingual ones. I'm annoyed I can't seem to find the unflavoured kind now. They tasted fine. I don't need my vitamins to taste like candy. Anyway, the sublingual ones are 1000 mcg and the only ones I could find when I went that didn't have a bunch of extra additives were 250 mcg. You can see how that became a problem, I'm sure.

My original plans for the weekend included seeing my significant other, but he was sick and not up for seeing anyone. We don't get a lot of time together because our schedules rarely align. It's something we're working on, of course, but it is what it is.

I ended up watching movies and attending a webinar. Webinars are always iffy. You learn a bit, but they often feel like sitting through a time share presentation. This one wasn't so heavy with marketing that I didn't learn anything. It did make me interested in taking the course it was promoting. Perhaps once school is done.

It started off really hot, so I was also cranky because of that until I stopped being an idiot. Then I remembered my adjustable tabletop laptop table has a fan built into it to keep the laptop cool, which actually helps keep me and the house cool too. I also brought my fan out of the bedroom.

Cleaning off my balcony helped my mood. It was satisfying to sit out there and enjoy a breeze. It would've been nice to have a gluten free beer or cider while sitting out there, but I was too broke to buy any.

Later, I caught a squirrel climbing on my balcony screen door.

I didn't mind that it got cold later, though I know that wrecked the long weekend for some. It made it easier to do things like clean the balcony.

Only trouble is, cleaning the balcony has left me with a pulled right hamstring muscle. I went for my "run" anyway, which was pretty much all walking. There are things around the house to pick up, but I can't bend over to do that, so it will have to wait. My thigh will have a date with a tennis ball to hopefully work that out since I don't own a foam roller.

As I look around my place, I still see so much that needs to be done, but I'm took broken to do it today.

Last night, I tried to play a free game that is supposed to work with my laptop, but doesn't. The graphics are so bad that I can't see the characters to even choose the one I want to play. It was frustrating to find this out after hours of patching the thing. I was looking forward to catching up with friends who don't live near me. It's always more fun while gaming.

Anyway, I suppose I should get on with the rest of this holiday Monday. It's not really a holiday for many who work for themselves. I'm choosing to start living my school schedule to a degree to be sure I'll be able to do things like exercise before school. Looks like I need to get up earlier than I am right now, which means also going to sleep earlier.

I'm not sure what I'm really trying to say with all of this today, except perhaps I'm not feeling as merry as I'd like today, so I best end it here.

Guid cheerio the nou,

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.
