Theatrical Tuesday - Harsh Realties

TuesdayToday was partly a day of hearing things I don't want to hear.

Things like that if I'm to get anywhere in this career, I pretty much need to move to Toronto or possibly my hometown. I don't want to move back to my hometown. My heart hasn't been there for a very long time. I'm not averse to moving. I just hope I don't have trouble selling my condo and I still have the problem of not having money to cover May's expenses.

And while killing time, I chatted with one of our alumni who thought my movie sounds more like a made for TV idea, but I think it could be bigger. Maybe I didn't explain it well enough.

Derek Diorio from Hard Rock Medical and many other things spoke to our class today. We learned a bit about how things get funded in Canada and that's what brought up the likely needing to move to Toronto idea.

Otherwise, it's been a tough day for me. I guess I slept wonky because my neck is super pissed off and I've been in pain all day going down into my shoulder. I'm basically sitting here with my head in an inflatable neck brace/stretcher to try and reduce the pain. I might take a shower just to have the warm water help.

It's also been tough because I took Naloxone training tonight due to losing a friend a couple months ago. We weren't close, but I was hoping to catch up with her and the next thing I knew, she was gone. After that time, I noticed how much stupid things people say in relation to the opioid issue, so I've also written a play to help some of them see it more clearly. At least, that's the hope. She was in my high school drama club, so I felt like a play was appropriate.

The semester is ramping up and there are a ton of things for me to get working on. The first act of our feature films is due this week and we also have to have something done for our TV shows. There is also reading and watching of some web series's.

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

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

Slumps

Image by Ulrike Mai For quite awhile, I was stuck in nearly every area of my life. I couldn't even think up ways to get unstuck. And I was sleeping terribly, so perhaps there is a connection there. Recently, I became unstuck. I don't know how or why, but lately I see a problem and can think up a work around in seconds. I may not have the energy to execute it, but at least I am getting the ideas for when I do have the energy. Maybe it's because I started a gratitude journal or because I'm beginning to see the light at the end of my renovation tunnel. It could be the hope I've felt since the inauguration happened. Who knows, maybe it's coffee. Speaking of renovations, there has been some slight progress on the bathroom front. They took measurements and will hopefully have materials soon. I don't know when, but hopefully soon. I had a look at the floor I was originally going to get and it wasn't available anymore. The one that was just like it had a pattern
