Warrior Wednesday - Life: The Battle

[caption id="attachment_11040" align="alignright" width="300"]sword Image created using Bitmoji[/caption]

I struggled all day thinking about what to write. This is partly because yesterday was a full day with some distressing moments.

I had a presentation to do in the morning that wasn't quite finished as sometimes happens with group work projects. My legs were shaking as I read my parts, but I've been told I kept my composure. That's good because the alternative was to give into the jelly feeling in my legs and collapse onto the floor. See how much I love presentations?

In my second class we had to pitch a reality TV show and my group was obsessed with eggs, so I was doubtful anything would come of the discussion, but we pulled it together and presented a decent idea for a show that even the teacher got into. Phew.

I was tired from the night before.

By the time I got home from school, it was 6:45 PM and martial arts was at 8:00 PM. I couldn't grab a quick bite and leave though. A post in one of the Facebook groups I administer had been flagged. In it, a woman was talking about suicide. Her message was a message and I wondered briefly if she was on something. Then I reported it to Facebook and called 911 in an attempt to get connected to the police in California. When I did get through to California, they couldn't do anything because I couldn't get an address for the woman. I ended up having to scour her Facebook for anything I could to see if someone can find her and get her help. I don't know yet today if my efforts were helpful. The police told me I had done everything I could. I had been diligent. That didn't make me feel better, but I went to martial arts.

It was the last practice before grading this upcoming weekend. I couldn't get through the whole thing. I got a headache from not having anything to eat. Sensei said there will be things we all need to fix after grading.

When I got home, I made some nachos and tried to do homework. I didn't get far. I still had a headache after eating, so I took a shower. It lessened some. I fought through a small assignment and went to bed.

I'm still tired today and worried about the woman as I work on today's to-do list.

I actually made it to school early this morning, but then I ran into an ex on campus...

I think I fixed up a group assignment. I sent what I had to my partner. Hopefully it's not bad?

I need to work on my play after I get some other things handled.

I've made significant progress on lengthening the straps on my fancy martial arts pants. I'll have to finish the straps tomorrow before I iron them and pack my things for the weekend.

I'm off to put my laundry in the dryer, hang my gear to dry, and make a late supper.

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.
