Thoughtful Thursday - Accountability

thoughtfulI've been having trouble writing this week due to the extra stressors and I noticed something that helped me get through it.

Once I told my teachers that I wasn't sure if I could get things done on time because of the other things I was dealing with, I was able to finish the projects I needed to finish and hand them in.

I suppose I was using my teachers to keep myself accountable in a way, but it also helped me to purged the heavy stuff from my system, so I could focus on the things I needed to get done.

I've been mostly doing well with school work. I'm ahead in most classes and I'm hoping none of my classmates are comparing their progress to mine. I've been writing since I was 9 and seriously for 7 years now. I've written a novel and have two others half done, I used to manage projects for a living, and I've taken a lot of post secondary courses. I've especially taken online ones with a large participation component that I totally sucked at, so I'm trying very hard to keep my marks up while doing other things.

Things like attempting Ni Dan grading again this weekend. I've lengthened the cords on my fancy pants, rolled the lint roller over everything, ironed it, and packed it. I need to pack a few things like underwear, socks, tops, makeup, and toiletries (especially earplugs), then chill for a bit before bed. I should have a little time tomorrow to do some small things before my friend picks me up and we set off to collect our third friend and head to the GTA.

I'll try to cue up a post for tomorrow. I might not get anything up Saturday between grading and drinking.

Maybe I'll do that quiz thing before the alcohol thing...

Guid cheerio the nou,
R~

Under Siege

My city is under attack. I wish I was being facetious.  The so-called "freedom" convoy is here and so far this is what has transpired: 1. They parked on the war memorial. These people who call themselves patriots. This is where the Unknown Soldier rests. This is where Corporal Nathan Cirullo lost his life in October of 2014. The cars were towed, but who knows what actual repercussions they will face. 2. Later, when asked to move away from memorial, one stood and jumped on the tomb itself while others cheered.  3. Despite having port-a-potties provided for by the mayor, they've been defecating on Parliament Hill, in snowbanks, and on streets nearby.  4. Flags being flown include the Confederate flag of the United States, Trump flags, the Quebec equivalent to the Confederate flag, upside down Canada flags, regular Canada flags, Fuck Trudeau flags, libertarian flags, and ones adorned with swastikas. Yeah, this is totally about freedom rather than racism, white su

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

December 2023 Holidays

The drive to North Bay was pretty smooth until I was 30 minutes away and ran out of windshield washer fluid. That was the first time that ever happened to me. Luckily, about 10-15 minutes later, there was one last gas station where I could fix that. Since it's my busy season, I worked the mornings and took the afternoons and evenings to spend with family and friends. My brother stopped by with a special gift, a new ornament for the tree. My mom loved ceramic Christmas trees, so it's a perfect way to keep her with us at Christmas. His friend, Fawn, helped him get it made. She has a YouTube channel you can check out here: https://youtube.com/@thethriftyfawn After that, I visited friends in the slightly rural part of Callander, Ontario. We were having a lovely time catching up and then the evening had a surprise in store. Someone in the area had hit a small deer with their vehicle. My friend's dad skinned and gutted it in around -20C (due to the windchill) weather.
