Make-It Monday - Holding Back

bitmoji_goals

This week's theme is holding back.

I suppose there are some things I need to hold back on in order to make it to the finish line. My last class is on April 26th.

I need to bite my tongue. There are so many things I would like to say to someone, because they have some things extremely wrong, but sometimes we must never speak to someone again. And sometimes there are people one spends months trying to work with only to be repeatedly disrespected at every juncture.

I hate drama and b.s.

Otherwise, I'm trying to get as much done as possible while dealing with fire testing in my building. I've been cleaning. A lot.

Oh, I had a wonderful coffee date recently! It was so comfortable and the conversation was great. I'm looking forward to seeing him again :)

Here is what I have left to do to graduate and their [due dates]:



  1. Complete my portfolio. [Thursday]

  2. Fix up this website. Yes, some tweaks will be made. You'll see my poetry tabs and some others moved to a new Portfolio tab. [Thursday]

  3. A quiz. [Thursday]

  4. A presentation about a web series. [Thursday]

  5. The second draft of my feature film. [Saturday]

  6. Revise my one act play. [23rd]

  7. A pitch document for a TV show. This is mostly done. [24th]

  8. Update my career plan. [26th]

  9. Supposedly an exam, though that one hasn't talked about it. [26th]


And ever since we had the workshop on writing for games, all I want to do is play videogames.

I think I know what I'll be doing on the 27th...

If you don't hear from me much this week, it's because I'm drowning in the above homework or perhaps I've had so much caffeine to survive that I can't sit still long enough to drop a line.

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
