Warrior Wednesday - Back to School

Right now the song from Grease 2 is playing in my head.

Yeah, I know that movie wasn't the best, but I can't help it.

Yesterday turned out great after a rough start. I was late because my brain decided that it was 10:45 I should catch the bus instead of 9:45. Class was at 11, so you can guess how that went. I let my teachers know and I wasn't the only one. Apparently, I didn't miss much in that first 25-35 minutes, so that was lucky.

I was late in part due to stomach issues. More on that tomorrow.

My anxiety was pretty high until this large black man got on the bus. He sat down, started munching away on a packet of red licorice and before long he was singing along with his music. Whether it was the grin on his face or his no fucks given attitude, a smile began creeping across my face. When I got inside the school, it turned into a huge grin after seeing all the students.

Maybe part of me didn't believe the strike was really over until that moment.

I discovered I'm ahead in most of my classes and that took some pressure off.

After practicing my kata to get ready for my grading two weekends from now, I fought through Final Draft's stage play alternate personality to complete my comedy sketch for the fund raiser we are doing on Friday. If you're in Ottawa, you should come out. It's pay whatever you can and it will help us afford our class trip at year end where we make the contacts we need to hopefully be successful screenwriters.

Here's the information.

Today was better time wise, though I was a little late for our meeting about Friday's event.

My stomach was better, so of course Mother Nature decided to pay me a visit and the app I have for that sort of thing decided not to remind me. A nice woman in the Registrar's Office helped me out and the day got better.

I met with my playwriting teacher and she has my mind blown open with the possibilities for my 10-minute play. I have to figure out how I want to put it together now. This may be one of my most challenging things this semester.

It's that awkward time of year where my coat is warm enough in daylight and not warm enough once the evening comes. I'm trying to tough it out because I don't want to pull out the heavy, bulky stuff until it's a little colder. If I do that, I'll be in trouble when those -40 days hit.

I'm exhausted, cold, sore, and have homework. I think a warm bath before supper is what's needed.

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.
