Merry Monday - Lots To Do And Little Time To Do It In

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

And thus we return to our regularly scheduled programming. Well, mostly. The colleges are still on strike. We had 21 days that had classes in my program prior to the strike. We've had 18 days worth of strike where we should have had classes. The strike has been longer than that for most students. I don't have Friday classes nor are any of mine on the weekends.

I slowly plod on because I don't know what else to do. I watch videos on YouTube from the greats like Syd Field. I read my text books, though I could be doing more of that I suppose. I work on my assignments. I've been working on the first act of my feature film script, but I realized that I have other assignments that were due before that one that I should focus on instead. Namely my short film, my 10-minute play, and my TV episode. I may work on my TV episode today because I've been told that it should go pretty smoothly since I did the 7-10 page treatment for it. I know I did something for my 10-minute play that is somewhat of an outline, so perhaps that will be next. I've done barely anything for the short film.

In my life, I have other things to do as well. I'm taking my car in tomorrow for an oil change, a tire change, and perhaps a repair on the left rear caliper, though that will depend on parts as unfortunately my model needs special calipers. This might also mean a brake pad change. It won't be cheap, but I've been saving for it.

I also need to extend the straps on my hakama before grading on December 2nd. At least I sent in the written. I almost missed that as I thought it was the 16th that it was due and it was yesterday. If I hadn't seen a Facebook post, I would've been screwed!

And my house needs to be cleaned. It always takes a lower priority over the rest though.

And there's laundry, dishes, and groceries to be done too. I should do groceries today in case my car is at the shop longer than expected.

My cold is lingering, but it started to clear on the weekend. My sinuses seemed to be plugged up into my ears! Bodies can be so weird.

I technically have a lot of free time, but the strike has been making me feel a bit depressed and making it difficult to actually make ample use of the free time. I also had to take some time to just rest because of the cold. I think I'm going to be ok though.

The hardest thing seems to be picking which thing to focus on first. Maybe I'll have breakfast, empty and load my dishwasher, then work on my TV episode for a bit and do groceries early this afternoon. Then I can do some laundry after that. Sounds like a plan. In the words of my father, "I love it when a plan comes together!" Yeah, he totally stole that from The A-Team. Or maybe they stole it from him...

Guid cheerio the nou,
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.
