Warrior Wednesday - Life: The Battle

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

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~
