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.

The Gauntlet That Was October

I had a lot of things happen in October. I watched Frankenstein in the cemetery with friends. I had tea with a friend. I started a new sport: curling. This is really fun and I'm enjoying the level of activity it provides and all the strategic elements. I'll do a separate post on it soon. Unfortunately, soon after my first game, I came down with Covid and so did the friend who I had tea with, so I think we both caught it at the place we went to. That wasn't fun. I already posted about that. I was fortunate to be free of it in time to attend Can-Con where I took in lots of panels, saw some of the wonderful writer community, bought many new books, and volunteered to help out in the rooms. The following weekend, I went to the livestream for Danielle Allard's new album release, followed by the in person release. As part of this, she has a 6 video series that releases every Sunday on her YouTube at 1:15 PM EDT. Video number 2, Falling Into Place, is one that I feel fortunate

2023 - Week 40

I felt a touch rough on Monday. After exchanging some shoes, I needed electrolytes. The heat with the egg thing made me a bit nauseus. I had lots of fluids before having noodles for dinner. That made me feel better. When Tuesday came about, I was looking forward to what I might be learning at GSL curling in the evening. I was also excited to being on the ice as a break from the unseasonal heat. It's spooky season! It's supposed to be a cool and cuddly time. We should be wearing hoodies (or bunny hugs if you prefer). Instead, I was sweating in jeans as I simply walked from my condo building to my car. Wednesday's plan was streaming, but I also hoped to fit an exchange at Home Depot in as I got the wrong shelf size for a project. Really, my original plan for something didn't work, so I was choosing to go a different way. I did stream, but I didn't get to Home Depot. Thursday featured work followed by packing for my spooky weekend away with friends. I got my oil and my

I've been busy. Really busy. Life: - Making food for two long weekends (Comiccon and an Iaido seminar) - Finishing my costume for Comiccon, which is in 5 days! (Carnival Punk Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - Went to On the Brink on Friday to hear authors read. Won a book and bought a Steampunk anthology. - In training this week for work (off-site) and it's an early start for me Writing: - Editing The Page & The Magician (just finished Chapter 3) - Finished a short story called The Blood Waitress Club , which is on revision 3 and I'm just waiting for feedback before I put it up on Smashwords - I've been trying to write short stories that may fit into some anthology, but I find it harder to write with some specific criteria in mind rather than coaxing the words from my soul Guitar: - We are learning a lot of songs (Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Green Day, Black Eyed Peas, Bare Naked Ladies, Simon & Garfunkel, ABBA, Ed Sheeran, The Animals, John Fogerty, Ian Thomas) - I hav
