Make-It Monday - Embracing Changes

bitmoji_goalsOkay, so last week I finished a skit for our fund-raiser and I had my first day of placement, which was decent. I also completed Act One of my feature film script and peer reviewed a friend's Act One.

We once had groups based on genre that we counted on to review our work. Then the teacher realized a bunch of people no longer wanted to write features, so they were given the option to write two short films instead. Well, that caused a bit of a problem because the people writing shorts preferred to review shorts and the people writing features were left in the lurch. I was one such person left with no one to review my stuff. I asked my teacher what would happen if there was no one to review my work. She told me I wasn't the only one and she regrouped us.

I was scared with who I might end up grouped with, but my new group is amazing! We're all good workers and I think we're really going to help each other elevate our writing to a new level :D

One of the members is my partner for an original TV series, so I already know we work well together. She's who I traded my work with last anyway. The other two are people I've been hoping to get a chance to work with. I'm enjoying reading their work. Actually, one was so good I kept reading it when I probably should have been going to sleep...

Anyway, I'm super excited for the rest of the semester now!

I'm also getting used to the schedule change and it's not so bad really. I mean, I don't love being up so early on Monday that I can see the sun rise from the bus, but I do like how much time I have to do things once I get home.

I submitted a pitch for the short film I already wrote to my teacher. That was an optional assignment for no marks, but it may get me more notice in Toronto in April, so I figured it was worth a try. Earlier today, I handed in an assignment in my play writing course. Yesterday I peer reviewed one of the men in my group, so there's one peer review left to do. I also have something to finish for placement. With the TV show one-pager pretty much done, I may actually get time to finish editing chapter two of my novel!

I'm a little behind on my readings, but I swear I will catch up. They're actually helpful readings. Speaking of reading, I'm also reading a book because we have to do a book review of a scriptwriting related book for one class.

Later this week, I also have to finish toying with my career plan, go to placement, and finish fund-raiser related things. Speaking of the fund-raiser, here's the event link in case you're around and want to drop in.

I got a planner the other day to help keep track of all the things. I was sure I'd be drowning soon if I didn't. I have a lot of goals in the mix right now and I think I'm mostly doing okay with them. I added some small new things. Specifically, stop eating cookies everyday. I figure that will help my workout results tremendously.

And that's how the river of life flows today.

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.
