I’ve been pretty exhausted since the pre-orientation day at school. It was a lot of walking. I think the first couple of weeks are going to be tough for me. There’s a line where the right amount of exercise reduces my fatigue and if I cross it, I end up extra tired for days. Extra tired as in I feel like the world is wrapped in cheesecloth (or maybe I am) and only some parts seep in. Of course, that line is like an invisible moving target, but it is what it is. Martial arts was rough yesterday.
I’ve been spending time going through my things to reduce where I can. As I wash clothing, I decide whether or not to keep it before folding it. I’ve been reducing my jewelry. I don’t wear much of it anyway.
I got the last kitchen drawer bottom cut on Friday. The next step is hand planing it to the right thickness for the slot. Not today though. I’m too sore from martial arts.
Things are coming together slowly.
I’m also working on my novel, of course.
I’ve already begun reading ahead for school.
The VMAs were a horrible waste of my time last night. They cut off Linkin Park’s performance which was in tribute to their lost band mate. They cut to commercial at the worst possible time they could have. Yet, Miley’s performance was unobstructed. They had no problems letting Katy Perry’s boring host blathering be heard by the audience at home, but a performance by Linkin Park had to be cut off. I seriously doubt I’ll ever bother with the VMAs again.
Anyway, today is supposed to be about positivity. It’s a beautifully sunny day here in Ottawa. The neighbour’s dog isn’t barking. It’s Monday, so I have a bunch of time to get things done before another weekend is upon me. The hardest challenge I have this week involves getting my storage area reconfigured so I can store my winter tires in it. I only have two tires in Ottawa right now as my car can only hold two of them. I have a trolley, so I’m not so worried about getting them from the car to the storage area.
Anyway, I should think about lunch and dinner too.
Oh, I also need to do some reading.
Looks like a mostly easy week before September comes.
Guid cheerio the nou,
