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

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.
