Make It Monday - Preparations

bitmoji_goalsAs semester two begins tomorrow, I've been spending a lot of time this weekend preparing for it by catching up on chores, planning food, and getting some rest.

Here was my Friday:

  • fixed my blue ray player

  • did a bit of novel editing (more on this below)

  • moved a bathroom cabinet, sink, mirrored medicine cabinet out of my car

  • shoveled some of the snow out of my parking spot

  • put away some of my Christmas decorations

  • submitted a thing related to placement plus updated my placement log

  • got in touch with my next placement person

  • got a little tipsy (work hard, play hard :))

  • watched 3 movies (Blade Runner Final Cut, Deliver Us From Evil, and Big Hero 6)

  • put together my second semester schedule

  • removed the old mirror from my bathroom

  • watched some Black List


Saturday was:

  • many loads of laundry

  • baked chicken wings

  • watched 2 movies (The Meyerowitz Stories and Vampire Academy)

  • watch more Black List?

  • did more editing

  • played some guitar and transposed one song from trumpet to guitar


Sunday:

  • beat Lego Marvel Superheros

  • cleaned the entranceway

  • did more editing


Today (so far):

  • mailed a letter

  • got my hair trimmed

  • did some groceries

  • watched this video to mourn the loss of Dolores from The Cranberries :'(


Cleaning

Now, why did I move all that stuff out of my car all in one day?

We were expecting rain that would flash freeze then snow was to follow it. I wanted to get it out sooner, but every time I turned around there was bad weather. It was mild that day despite a light drizzle, so it was time to get it done. It hasn't helped overall with getting my place clean as I now have a sink hanging out in my little dining room, but that's life.

I start placement soon too and I intend to drive there, so I thought it would be nice if my car wasn't full of furniture.

I'm not sure what got into me on Friday, but I'm losing the steam I had that day. My big plan for tonight is to fold the clothes I washed the other day and maybe put away some other things that need to be put away.

Writing

I've mostly taken a break this weekend from writing other than my blog. I did do a little on the editing on my novel though. It took me about half a day to find a better word than I initially chose because it's quite a specific thing and all the words normally suggested just didn't quite fit. I also fixed some other parts that seemed overly wordy and jargon filled. I'm annoyed it took me that long, but the smallest amount of progress is better than none at all.

School

Second semester starts tomorrow. So this week is about getting used to a new schedule, new rooms, and I also begin my work placement at a local production company, which I'm super excited about!

Fitness

I'm starting to exercise a little more as of this week. First, I need to clear the area for it, so I'll be working on that some tonight.

Music

I haven't been playing every day yet, but I know I will. Especially as I get my place cleaner, I'll have less other things to do.

And that's how it 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

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

Funky Friday - Losses, threats, and violence

[caption id="attachment_4712" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption] I completed the second draft of my story, so I'm writing a quick post of the most prominent stories from this week. Sad - An RCMP officer in Ottawa took his own life. Happy - Jared from the Subway commercials got beaten in prison . I have zero sympathy for sexual predators. Sometimes I think I should feel bad about this, but children are one of our most precious resources and adults like him disgust me. Excited - Anonymous has declared war on Donald Trump! Hopeful - I'm starting a new treatment soon to better manage my pain. Unsettled - Given that I just finished writing a story that features an unknown pathogen... This outbreak in Wisconsin is freaking me out just a tiny bit. Well, that's all I have the mental capacity for tonight. Ciao, R~
