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.

Under Siege

My city is under attack. I wish I was being facetious.  The so-called "freedom" convoy is here and so far this is what has transpired: 1. They parked on the war memorial. These people who call themselves patriots. This is where the Unknown Soldier rests. This is where Corporal Nathan Cirullo lost his life in October of 2014. The cars were towed, but who knows what actual repercussions they will face. 2. Later, when asked to move away from memorial, one stood and jumped on the tomb itself while others cheered.  3. Despite having port-a-potties provided for by the mayor, they've been defecating on Parliament Hill, in snowbanks, and on streets nearby.  4. Flags being flown include the Confederate flag of the United States, Trump flags, the Quebec equivalent to the Confederate flag, upside down Canada flags, regular Canada flags, Fuck Trudeau flags, libertarian flags, and ones adorned with swastikas. Yeah, this is totally about freedom rather than racism, white su

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 Pride Journey - Part II

Image by Gordon Johnson "Wait, so you really got to age 39 before figuring out you were gay? Are you stupid?" Yeah, so I know a number of my friends and/or readers have probably been wondering about some things. Or maybe I just think so because I would be curious as to how someone can not know they're gay after doing a lot of sampling over the decades. At one point, I just thought most men were terrible at sex. Or mediocre at the very least. OK, I'm going to cross into too much information territory now. Penetration has almost always been unpleasant for me. I've thought so many things over the years on that beyond men being awful lovers. I thought it could be because I'm petite. Or maybe because I have Sjogren's Syndrome. One partner even had me convinced I had vaginismus for a time. Or maybe it was that I had trust issues and that's why I often couldn't "arrive"? But it was often the case for me that sex would be fine once or twice and s
