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.

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.
