Make-It Monday/Theatrical Tuesday - Coping with Stress

bringit

I meant to post yesterday.

This is an insane week for me, so posting will be sparse and brief. Actually, maybe even non-existent as television and movie companies don't allow electronic devices thanks to apps like Facebook listening.

Yesterday was Easter Monday in Canada. To some, it meant a holiday. To others, it was a Monday with sale chocolate.

Classes were running. I felt a bit dizzy and I decided the best thing for me to do was to take some time to prepare for the week ahead. I don't usually miss, but there is a lot of stress right now and sometimes one needs to practice some self-care.

So I hemmed my jeans and did some folding. I did laundry and planned my outfits for the pitching trip. I also practiced my feature film pitch.

With the hectic week ahead, I didn't travel home to see my family. I'm hoping to soon as I haven't seen them since Christmas. I'm going to teach them Skype.

Since it was April Fool's on Sunday, I tried to have my dad tell my mom that I was flunking everything, I was going to starve, but I found a job dancing, and Bruno says I'm talented. He relayed most of it and judging by his laugh, mom made a good face.

On Monday, I also completed the next stage of a job application. It was an online assessment. I hope I did well! I'm happy to have made it this far.

I didn't sleep well last night as I was freaking out about thoughts of the transit system not getting me to the school on time for the pitch trip. My local bus is one of the worst in the city for suddenly not existing. And especially so when there is bad weather. We're expecting freezing rain tonight and maybe some snow. I decided that the sensible thing would be to Uber or Lyft to school early, so I can ensure I won't miss the bus. It won't be cheap, but if I order it early enough, I won't have anything to worry about.

I still have to rewrite my feature film's cue cards. I'm so happy I got blue cards from my teacher!

Well, I'm off to finish packing. You might not hear from me until Friday or Saturday.

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.
