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

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

Funky Friday - Losses, threats, and violence

[caption id="attachment_4712" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption] I completed the second draft of my story, so I'm writing a quick post of the most prominent stories from this week. Sad - An RCMP officer in Ottawa took his own life. Happy - Jared from the Subway commercials got beaten in prison . I have zero sympathy for sexual predators. Sometimes I think I should feel bad about this, but children are one of our most precious resources and adults like him disgust me. Excited - Anonymous has declared war on Donald Trump! Hopeful - I'm starting a new treatment soon to better manage my pain. Unsettled - Given that I just finished writing a story that features an unknown pathogen... This outbreak in Wisconsin is freaking me out just a tiny bit. Well, that's all I have the mental capacity for tonight. Ciao, R~
