Make-It Monday - Sit



I've had far too many of the people that are supposed to help me tell me to sit and wait. Not on everything, but on the things that would actually get me employed sooner rather than waiting for months. Sitting around collecting a cheque that doesn't cover half of your expenses isn't how to get back to a place of prosperity or ensure you don't become homeless.

It takes real action.

So while waiting for the possibility that some company may eventually call me for an interview, I'm done sitting around in the interim. I've signed up for some flexible work doing deliveries. I'm done listening to fear-mongering about self-employment. Now I'm waiting to be approved to start.

And while that is happening, I've been creating myself a schedule that includes blocked off writing time. I edited two chapters today.

Tomorrow I meet with my job coach and Wednesday I meet with a recruiter who searched me out online because of my writing accomplishments.

I'm also tired of sitting in general. When I can afford it, I'm going to get a small work out device like a stepper with a handlebar to be active while I watch movies. I'm sitting too much and my glutes are suffering. Because my quads are stronger than my glutes, my body is a little off kilter.

I'm going to get in touch with some people about my feature film script too. I have a place to send my one-pager and a martial arts contact was interested in reading the screenplay because he's a filmmaker.

Other than that, I have some research and cold calls to make for my internship. I also have some other tasks for another recruiter.

I feel better than I've felt in a long time.

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
