Frisky Friday - Being Me

It's so easy to convince ourselves of the wrong things, especially when it comes to dating, relationships, and sex.

Being a writer with food issues has me searching the Internet for all kinds of things, so when I saw the meme below on the Just Laugh's Facebook page, I had to share it.

Over-thinking causes me to over-complicate things often. I mean, I've spent weeks trying to figure out if a wink and smile is something more by reading Your Tango articles and other such drivel and... Well, I've realized I need to stop doing that. 

I think it's better to just find a way to show interest and see what happens next. 

I know convincing yourself to be something you aren't isn't the way to go ever. But people often try to be someone they aren't when they like someone rather than admit they might not be compatible in the least. I used to do that. It never worked out well. 

Here's the meme before I completely lose you.

Anyway, this morning I decided to pull out my Gryffindor courage and be clear about my feelings. Life is complicated enough, so I don't need to add to it.

I'm also being unapologetically me these days. I love Harry Potter, Star Wars, South Park, Wonder Woman, martial arts, video games, TV/movies, and music. I'm an ambitious writer and I swear more than I probably should. I also like reading when I have the time. I'm Christian, but I'm relaxed about it. I believe it's entirely possible to admit you have a weakness without letting that define who you are or who you will be. Sometimes I love really deep philosophical conversations and sometimes I love less intense talks. I prefer balance over extremism. I think all 3 major political parties suck in this country. I believe people focus too much on what makes us different from each other rather than just showing each other love and kindness. 

A simpler version? I'm just going to be me. I think this works for this marital arts grading too. I'm going to try my best. 

I'm off to do the last few things I need to before leaving town. 

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

Slumps

Image by Ulrike Mai For quite awhile, I was stuck in nearly every area of my life. I couldn't even think up ways to get unstuck. And I was sleeping terribly, so perhaps there is a connection there. Recently, I became unstuck. I don't know how or why, but lately I see a problem and can think up a work around in seconds. I may not have the energy to execute it, but at least I am getting the ideas for when I do have the energy. Maybe it's because I started a gratitude journal or because I'm beginning to see the light at the end of my renovation tunnel. It could be the hope I've felt since the inauguration happened. Who knows, maybe it's coffee. Speaking of renovations, there has been some slight progress on the bathroom front. They took measurements and will hopefully have materials soon. I don't know when, but hopefully soon. I had a look at the floor I was originally going to get and it wasn't available anymore. The one that was just like it had a pattern
