Excited And Expectant

I could finally order the musical equipment that I've been wanting, so I'm very excited to get using it. I retrieved it today from the post office. This took two trips as it came in two packages despite being ordered together as one bundle. Sometimes the world really doesn't make sense to me. YOU CAN'T CALL IT A BUNDLE IF IT'S NOT BUNDLED!!!

We've entered the time of year where I try not to ship a lot directly to my home because people in my building steal things leading up to Christmas. I don't know if this is out of desperation to provide gifts they can't actually afford to buy or if they just don't want to spend money or if there's some other reason, but it's not cool at all.

I have a rug coming to make my office, which is also my streaming and music space, cozier and to have the floor itself appear distinctly separate from the rest of my condo.

After seeing a comment on a friend's Facebook post, I thought it might be neat to share when I learn or confirm a grammar item. I wasn't sure on this one myself, so I hit Google. Today in grammar, it's deep-seated, not deep seeded, but I can understand the confusion on that one. One might be picturing a seed growing deep in the dark, so far below the surface that its roots cannot be pulled. But that would be wrong!

It's apparently time for some blog maintenance. I had to renew my domain this week. Google sent a thing about analytics, so I need to check that I'm all good there. And it looks like I need to see if I can ban certain users from commenting on my blog since they are clearly spammers. I marked a number of posts as spam and deleted them. There were around 20. I don't understand why people do this stuff. Get a life!

It took me awhile to figure out my November goals, but I have and I can see some of these continuing into December.


NOVEMBER GOALS

Finances

- Continue reducing debts. (Outside of goal specific spending, I've been doing well here.)


Health & Fitness

- Make homemade meals at least 5/7 days of the week.* (I've been doing really well on this and I'm happy about it.)

- Rowing 2x weekly.

- Moving (walking/dancing/curling/cleaning) 4x weekly.


Home

- Sell items.

- Continue catching up at home. (This has been going well. My office has improved and I have a tea area in my kitchen now.)

- Finish reading nook.


Music

- Practise daily. (I can't seem to get into a routine that allows for this every day. It's easier to do so Thursday-Sunday.)

- Memorise at least one song.


Reading

- Read daily for at least 30 minutes.* (I'm totally sucking at this and it makes me sad.)


Writing

- Sparker: Organize notes that need to be edited into the novel then use them to edit.* (I've started doing this while others do NaNo sprints.)

- Popcorn Girl: Experiment with sounds to figure out what's missing. (I will have Ableton soon and be more able to do this.)

Under Siege

My city is under attack. I wish I was being facetious.  The so-called "freedom" convoy is here and so far this is what has transpired: 1. They parked on the war memorial. These people who call themselves patriots. This is where the Unknown Soldier rests. This is where Corporal Nathan Cirullo lost his life in October of 2014. The cars were towed, but who knows what actual repercussions they will face. 2. Later, when asked to move away from memorial, one stood and jumped on the tomb itself while others cheered.  3. Despite having port-a-potties provided for by the mayor, they've been defecating on Parliament Hill, in snowbanks, and on streets nearby.  4. Flags being flown include the Confederate flag of the United States, Trump flags, the Quebec equivalent to the Confederate flag, upside down Canada flags, regular Canada flags, Fuck Trudeau flags, libertarian flags, and ones adorned with swastikas. Yeah, this is totally about freedom rather than racism, white su

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 Pride Journey - Part II

Image by Gordon Johnson "Wait, so you really got to age 39 before figuring out you were gay? Are you stupid?" Yeah, so I know a number of my friends and/or readers have probably been wondering about some things. Or maybe I just think so because I would be curious as to how someone can not know they're gay after doing a lot of sampling over the decades. At one point, I just thought most men were terrible at sex. Or mediocre at the very least. OK, I'm going to cross into too much information territory now. Penetration has almost always been unpleasant for me. I've thought so many things over the years on that beyond men being awful lovers. I thought it could be because I'm petite. Or maybe because I have Sjogren's Syndrome. One partner even had me convinced I had vaginismus for a time. Or maybe it was that I had trust issues and that's why I often couldn't "arrive"? But it was often the case for me that sex would be fine once or twice and s
