ROW80 2021 Round 3 End

Do you ever feel like you're exactly where you're meant to be? It's quite rare for me, but that was Friday. After retrieving my skates from Farrhaven, I spent the night catching up on punk bands. It felt like what I really needed. When I don't suck so much at guitar, I'd like to be in a punk band. I can't do power chords yet, so it'll be a minute... I also played around with learning GIMP. I've been wanting to have skills in this area for a long time, and I'm working toward that.

This is the part of the sandwich when I say it was martial arts I've left behind indefinitely. Though I enjoyed swinging my sword the other day, I need time away to focus on the things I'm more passionate about. Thankfully, the community has been accepting of this and that's a weight off my shoulders. I was worried I would lose some friends over it as silly as that may sound.

Saturday brought sleeping in, more punk catch up, and working on Sparks. I really need to get this chapter done! Previously, I was spending a lot of time making decisions about how to turn a sport into a futuristic version without destroying it altogether. I hope I'm accomplishing that. I'm about halfway through the chapter now and should be done it soon. I also got an adorable video invite to a friend's house from a little girl who just turned 5

On Sunday, I refreshed my hair dye and met up with friends in Minecraft to start a group build. We're building a battle arena for fun. We tend to do for fun builds in creative mode because they don't involve profiting on resources and such. The rest of my Sunday plans included visiting my friends early to see said adorable 5-year-old girl and her big brother before the adults engaged in B-Movie night. It was our first with an in-person option since the pandemic started!

This round of ROW80 has wrapped up, but I'm going to continue working on my goals.

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~
