Warrior Wednesday - Health & Fitness Update

Between the posture wedge and just carting less things around campus, my neck is doing a lot better. On Tuesday of last week I was crying and wondering how the hell I was going to make it through two semesters in so much pain. Now I feel like I need to become one with the virtual world and set up residence inside Blackboard, but my pain has drastically reduced. My tablet is here, but I can't use it yet as I'm not allowed to pick it up until after 1PM and I'm in class until 3PM.  I checked with First Draft and I'm good to go on installing it on a second device, so yay :)

I haven't found time to run lately and it's been impossible to make it to Tuesday iaido classes, but hopefully I'll be in my groove soon.

It looks like the HEMA club will hopefully be up and running soon. I'm going to take it easy with the sparring aspects and focus on learning some history and maybe help with writing translations.

For one of my assignments, many of us messed up and did the wrong thing, so we have to redo it. I've now written an episode of South Park involving martial arts. It needs more work before it's final, but it's going to be a nice portfolio piece to show one of my styles of writing.

I got lost in A building briefly, but I seem to know most of the campus now. I've gotten used to the extra walking and it's not killing me now. Hopefully soon I'll feel good enough and have the swing of things, so I'll be able to fit in more other exercise.

Well, hopefully this is the last day of class with the laptop. I really enjoyed the freedom I felt on Monday when I didn't have to lug a bag around. I got to sit upstairs on a double decker and despite the bug guts on the windows, it was neat to see my neighbourhood from up there.

Class should be starting soon if the teacher can get the equipment working, so I'll have to say bye for now.

Guid cheerio the nou,

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.
