Make-It Monday - After the Holidays

bitmoji_goals

It's the first day back to class after reading week. I got a reasonable amount of things done.

The break started with a trip to Montreal to spend time with friends and do martial arts. Much sake, conversation, and training was had.

I painted a good chunk of my entrance and hall. I intend to try to finish the front door later tonight. My place is a mess from moving things around to paint. Some won't ever go back because I want my place to be nicer. Other things like my skates will go into a bin because I don't need them regularly. I need to figure out what takes gum off a quad wheel before I can close it...

My mom had her 75th birthday the day after Family Day. They had a quiet meal at a favourite burger place. Sometimes the simple things are the best things.

I got a play review and book review done. I also started another assignment. It's a fun one as I get to watch a movie I like and dissect it. It's lengthy and needed to be started early. I didn't do much else in the homework realm because I was pretty burned out before heading into the weekend and wanted to replenish my creative juices.

I put together a puzzle while in too much pain from painting. It's the Great Wave of Kanagawa. People online say it is too hard. I did it in 4 days. Mind you, I didn't get a lot else done in that time.

I also had a date that was filled with interesting conversation set to live music, which are two of my favourite things. We talked a lot about one of those topics you're not supposed to talk about, but considering we met at a political function, it wasn't unexpected. We also talked about dogs. I want one SO bad! I'd like to see him again :)

There's also been a lot of online debating, which led me to removing any of the people prone to personal attacks instead of staying on topic. The people who are left have been engaging in polite and reasonable debate. I cleared off some other people I just have too little in common with and never hear from also. It seemed like a good time.

Last night was B-Movie night. The movie was hilariously bad. It was Jersey Shore Shark Attack. This was my first experience of Jersey Shore.

Though tired, I made it to class for 9 AM today. I've been struggling making it on time for that one, so I'm glad I did. We have some evenings instead for it and I'm looking forward to that.

And I fell asleep partly through writing this post. Mondays are too early for me.

All said, I think I did reasonably well on goals despite being on vacation. I fit in a good balance of socializing and feel ready to get back at my studies. I was excited as we worked on our one act plays earlier today :D

And that's how life's river 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.
