Theatrical Tuesday - In Slow Motion

Tuesday

I keep thinking about and forgetting a topic I want to talk about on Tuesday. I've been doing it for several weeks now and it's so annoying! It feels as though the thoughts have been shoved behind a barrier in my mind that I can't see, but only feel is there.

Having a cold has given me time to slow down and refocus some of my energy. I've found Facebook more annoying than usual and logged out for the day. I'm exploring other options for connecting with like-minded people whose goals align with my own. I started today out extremely frustrated and am ending it in the opposite state.

The first draft of my one act play has been written and was submitted yesterday. It's an office-based melodrama that touches on a number of societal ills and uses office noises in a musical way. I'm pretty psyched about it! It's not as long as my teacher wanted, but there will be a couple more times during the semester to add to it and make it better.

Sometimes it's not about getting something written quickly. That's hard for me to accept. I'm usually working at a fast pace. What this year has been teaching me is that our work needs to go through a lot of stages before it can be its best, so it's not crucial to get it perfect on the first pass.

My TV series partner and I were supposed to be mock pitching for our show, but between my cold and her ultra packed week, I requested a move to next week. I've never been one for sharing my germs if I can help it.

I'll be working on a movie set this weekend as part of wardrobe. I'm hoping to learn a lot and maybe they'll have good tips for my sewing. It's mostly outdoor work, so I'm really hoping I'm feeling better by then. I also hope I can stay warm, so I don't get sicker.

Today, I've slowly added to my feature film script and got a load of laundry done. Every time I tried to do more, I had a sneeze fit or my nose would run.

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

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

Funky Friday - Losses, threats, and violence

[caption id="attachment_4712" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption] I completed the second draft of my story, so I'm writing a quick post of the most prominent stories from this week. Sad - An RCMP officer in Ottawa took his own life. Happy - Jared from the Subway commercials got beaten in prison . I have zero sympathy for sexual predators. Sometimes I think I should feel bad about this, but children are one of our most precious resources and adults like him disgust me. Excited - Anonymous has declared war on Donald Trump! Hopeful - I'm starting a new treatment soon to better manage my pain. Unsettled - Given that I just finished writing a story that features an unknown pathogen... This outbreak in Wisconsin is freaking me out just a tiny bit. Well, that's all I have the mental capacity for tonight. Ciao, R~
