Merry Monday - Movies, More Movies, and Work

[caption id="attachment_4711" align="alignright" width="300"]merry_monday Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption]

What did I even do on Friday? It seems so long ago that I had trouble remembering, but I saw The Disaster Artist. It's a seriously great film about the making of the best worst film ever and worth seeing even if you aren't a fan of The Room.

I think I forgot to post on Saturday. I'm sorry for that. I've handed in somewhere around nine assignments in the last week and a half. My brain has been rather mushy as a result. I haven't gotten to do near enough music lately. I have to rebuild my calluses AGAIN. Someday I'll get to play guitar regularly... *sigh*.

Saturday and Sunday were taken up by work placement with Digi60 and I was fortunate to see short films made by some really talented people in the Ottawa area. Many of the most memorable and enjoyable ones were by Vincent Valentino. Some other were definitely by people that haven't studied much. Things like lighting were terrible in those. I could tell because of taking Video Production class. I'm apparently learning stuff in that one after all...

I had some car trouble, but I'm hoping to grab a charge thing so I never have battery trouble again unless the battery truly is screwed and Pixie hasn't just lost charge from not being driven plus it being cold out. Cars. Are. So. Fun. I suppose it forced me to learn the Rideau Centre bus stop intricacies.

I've watched a lot of the Star Wars films over the weekend in preparation for The Last Jedi. I can't believe it's almost here. It feels like I've been waiting for it for so long! I got the last D-Box seat for Friday early afternoon and just need to actually pick up my ticket. I'm watching in Machete Order because it's awesome and I can. I want to read the scripts too, but won't have time before Friday. Yoda kicking ass makes up some of my favourite scenes. Speaking of Star Wars, I have a fan theory I've come up with recently that I intend to share tomorrow.

I'm not sure what school has on tap this week, but I'm really enjoying writing every day. It's what I've wanted to do for so very many years. I better get ready.

Guid cheerio the nou,
R~

Hanna "Semi Precious" Murphy

A legend in the roller derby community is gone. How and why, I do not know. What I do know is that many are reeling from the news, myself included. 
Hanna was known for big hits and a brilliant personality. I experienced her hits first hand as she sent me flying a number of times. Then she'd smile and make sure I wasn't hurt. 
I stumbled onto this clip on Youtube from 2012 and I think it shows Hanna as many knew her.
She was a force off the track too.
As a cofounder of the award-winning Top Shelf Distillers, she gave much to the surrounding Ottawa Valley community.  
Hanna was a relatively petite woman and it was she who taught me that I could be mighty despite my size. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if I hadn't had the pleasure and the privilege of sharing the track with her. 
I'm shocked. I'm sad. I'm upset I'll never see her or speak to her again. 
R.I.P. #10.

Change is in the Air

I've been making a lot of changes lately around my home and some of them might seem a little odd, but they're making me happy. One thing I've done is taken apart my dining table. I never eat in there or have people over to eat. It was just another horizontal surface that would collect things like receipts, odd screws from various projects, and countless piles of paper. I had been frustrated because of the clutter it encouraged, but also because I didn't have a space for my Yamaha keyboard. I had been trying to use my keyboard in the living room, but it felt too cluttered and it wasn't sitting at the right height. With it now in my dining room, I was able to relocate my storage bench, which happens to be the perfect height to sit at while playing my keyboard. I now have much more breathing room. There is still a lot of mess to handle here yet, but I'm making solid progress. A lot of people suggest the bedroom is the place to start when decluttering, but I haven&…

Feeling My Age - ROW80 2020 R1-4

I've reached the age where my body has decided to have issues. Not constantly, but frequently. Sprinting for a bus can leave me with an injured ankle simply from using it, not from actually twisting it in ways it shouldn't move, just a fairly normal activity. I guess I need to warmup and stretch before walking to the bus now. About a decade ago, I was given a guard for my teeth due to grinding. And for the next month, I need to sleep with wrist braces because my doctor thinks I'm developing carpal tunnel. Really, I'm surprised it hasn't happened before now given my level of computer use. My mom had it years ago and had to have surgery. From reading books of all things. Anyway, he thinks if I sleep with braces on that it may be enough to keep it at bay because the nerves will get 7-8 hours of rest. After 4 days and nights, the tingling has been reducing, so I'm hopeful.
