Theatrical Tuesday - First Days

L4BB3-67RLK3J_RoyRThis day is an important one for many who are returning to school or going for the first time ever in their life. My toddler buddy, whom I can no longer call a toddler, is having his first day ever. He's growing up too fast. I suppose he's now my little buddy for lack of a better term at this time.

For some others, they welcome new additions in their families. I have two friends with newborns. One is less than 12 hours old at this point. Both families and doing well and their babies are as adorable as you might expect.

For myself and at least 4 of my friends, we're starting college today. The day is filled with events, live music, and we meet our classmates for the first time. My lunch is packed, I've showered, and all that's left is finishing my breakfast, dressing, and brushing my teeth before I head off to catch the bus.

My OSAP is in already, so I can purchase my license for the student edition of Final Draft and a locker shelf if those are available somewhere. I wish I though of the shelf sooner, but it's been a while since I last had a locker.

I thought I'd have more done by the time this day arrived, but here it is. I could have used a little more sleep and another week, but often we must do our best with what we are given.

Thank you to all my friends and family who have supported me as I take this step.

I'm off to begin my Scriptwriting journey.

Guid cheerio the nou,
R~

The Gauntlet That Was October

I had a lot of things happen in October. I watched Frankenstein in the cemetery with friends. I had tea with a friend. I started a new sport: curling. This is really fun and I'm enjoying the level of activity it provides and all the strategic elements. I'll do a separate post on it soon. Unfortunately, soon after my first game, I came down with Covid and so did the friend who I had tea with, so I think we both caught it at the place we went to. That wasn't fun. I already posted about that. I was fortunate to be free of it in time to attend Can-Con where I took in lots of panels, saw some of the wonderful writer community, bought many new books, and volunteered to help out in the rooms. The following weekend, I went to the livestream for Danielle Allard's new album release, followed by the in person release. As part of this, she has a 6 video series that releases every Sunday on her YouTube at 1:15 PM EDT. Video number 2, Falling Into Place, is one that I feel fortunate

2023 - Week 40

I felt a touch rough on Monday. After exchanging some shoes, I needed electrolytes. The heat with the egg thing made me a bit nauseus. I had lots of fluids before having noodles for dinner. That made me feel better. When Tuesday came about, I was looking forward to what I might be learning at GSL curling in the evening. I was also excited to being on the ice as a break from the unseasonal heat. It's spooky season! It's supposed to be a cool and cuddly time. We should be wearing hoodies (or bunny hugs if you prefer). Instead, I was sweating in jeans as I simply walked from my condo building to my car. Wednesday's plan was streaming, but I also hoped to fit an exchange at Home Depot in as I got the wrong shelf size for a project. Really, my original plan for something didn't work, so I was choosing to go a different way. I did stream, but I didn't get to Home Depot. Thursday featured work followed by packing for my spooky weekend away with friends. I got my oil and my

I've been busy. Really busy. Life: - Making food for two long weekends (Comiccon and an Iaido seminar) - Finishing my costume for Comiccon, which is in 5 days! (Carnival Punk Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - Went to On the Brink on Friday to hear authors read. Won a book and bought a Steampunk anthology. - In training this week for work (off-site) and it's an early start for me Writing: - Editing The Page & The Magician (just finished Chapter 3) - Finished a short story called The Blood Waitress Club , which is on revision 3 and I'm just waiting for feedback before I put it up on Smashwords - I've been trying to write short stories that may fit into some anthology, but I find it harder to write with some specific criteria in mind rather than coaxing the words from my soul Guitar: - We are learning a lot of songs (Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Green Day, Black Eyed Peas, Bare Naked Ladies, Simon & Garfunkel, ABBA, Ed Sheeran, The Animals, John Fogerty, Ian Thomas) - I hav
