Warrior Wednesday - So Many Battles

[caption id="attachment_11040" align="alignright" width="300"]sword Image created using Bitmoji[/caption]

Budo is life and I'm fighting many opponents right now.

The battle for a routine is ongoing, but I feel like it'll smooth out soon. I expect it will probably be after next weekend when our fund-raiser comedy show is done. The skit I wrote this time is about a master of orgasm-fu, which takes a funny jab at chi masters.

Several of us were talking about our plans for after school is done and it's comforting to know that I'm not the only person in the class that would prefer not to move to the Toronto area right away, if possible. I think it's important to be prepared for it though, so I'm going to push forward on sorting through the multitude of things I own and hopefully sell some things on the weekends. And it's quite possible that in the distant future I'll need to go elsewhere, but writing is a career I should be able to do from anywhere unless I'm on a really popular TV show's team. I'm going to mainly focus on doing well in classes and see what happens. If I'm with the right people, it won't matter so much where I'm living. The thing I like about the Toronto area is that I have a number of friends there and an awesome dojo in the Oshawa and Peterborough area, so there would be more there than the job. But I have a lot of friends in Ottawa too. I think Oshawa is an hour closer to my parents and they're in their mid seventies, so that could be important in the future too. There are so many things to look at.

With the potential of work comes a need to dress better. I'm slowly refreshing my wardrobe with pieces I enjoy wearing more. I think looking and feeling my best will help me do my best work at school and elsewhere. I'm doing this as inexpensively as possible between thrift stores and sale items. I've also been getting back into bothering to wear makeup.

I met with my teacher today and she told me that they have no worries about my work or anything. I'm a little worried that part of my first semester success was having the extra five weeks of pure writing time that we won't have this semester. We have so much due over the next couple of days.

I feel like I'm getting home so much later than I used to, so I have less time to do my homework. I think that will improve once our comedy show is done as I'll have all of Wednesday morning to get some homework in before class.

My neck is sore for some reason, though it's a little better than yesterday. Some days I feel like I'll always be fighting with it just as I'll always be trying to improve my sword grip or cuts in iaido. I have no clue what I did to upset it so much. Perhaps I just slept in a wonky position.

As I need to finish the first act of my feature film, a theatrical scene, a one-pager for my original TV show, plus do a few other things like readings all before Tuesday, I think I need to take a couple days off of blogging, so unless some topics hit me on the head, I might not post again until Monday.

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

OIW - Book Cover Design Seminar

On May 22nd, I went to a seminar on book cover design. Before the information was presented on design, the author of Imposter Bride, Nancy Richler , read part of her first chapter and the story sounds intriguing. Lately, I am preferring to read the work of other Ottawa-area authors. Perhaps someday it will be my book that they read in turn. Currently, I am reading The Crimson Man by Patricia K McCarthy and though it is not in my genre, it is a fiery read. Ladies, you'll enjoy it. So far it feels heated like 50 Shades of Grey, but with more substance and a higher level of writing skill. At the beginning of the meeting, announcements were made about newly published works by members of the Ottawa Independent Writers group. The Autism Story is written as fiction by a university professor that specializes in the area. It sounds interesting as well. Nancy Richler answered questions about publishing after she completed her reading. Here is what I took from it: 1. Avoid small pr
