  1. Hey! So I fell of the map there... After my supervisors comments (actually, he yelled at me for half an hour), I had a couple weeks of permanent student-dom! I pretty much stayed in my office for 14 hours each day and just worked like a crazy person! I don't even know what happened in that time anymore...its a blur. Somehow I lost two weeks worth of this challenge and as it turns out my supervisor still treats me like a turd, so my struggle was for nothing! I did get a lot done though, and I did learn a lot, but I don't think it was much more than what I normally do...it was really just more
  2. Hello All! Sorry I'm late on updating. I really only have Sundays available for this and I kind of missed it this week with other busy stuff... I've been keeping to my schedule really well, I personally feel really great about it; however, I just met with my supervisor and he thinks I'm doing terribly which really makes me sad and confused. I asked him about it and he said he doesn't think I work hard enough and I spend too much of my time on non-school things! I really don't know what to think about that. As it is I don't have any time for non-school things (as you know from reading my pr
  3. Update: ok, so far I've been doing really well with everything! I've been walking to school everyday and practicing wing chun. I'm actually starting to improve a bit and my muscles are getting used to the wing chun stance and movements. I did take the bus to school and home on Friday because it was raining like crazy (70-ish mm or something insane like that?!) and super windy...just a disgusting day. I also kept up with my school goals! However, my supervisor didnt get back to me with my draft corrections yet, so I'm kind of stuck at the moment. It's making me really nervous! Still haven't f
  4. Update: I walked home yesterday, walked to school today and am going to walk home again today (my bus pass expired, so that's helped!). I also did yoga this morning and plan to get some wing chun practice in tonight. I had a wing chun class yesterday morning and will go to another one tomorrow. I also submitted a draft of my thesis proposal to my committee today (a day late according to my personal school schedule) so that felt great! I'm now completely mentally exhausted and might go home early to get some house chores started before I have to go to bed and wake up at 5am to go to wing chun t
  5. Hello! I don't know where the time has gone, but I totally missed that the challenge started last week! School has been crazy, so that's probably why I forgot about NF... I've moved from the Druid's to the Assassin's guild because I feel like you might be a huge help to my Main Quest at this point in my life. I started out in NF as a human who wanted to eventually become an elf druid-assassin! I'm getting closer to becoming an elf and I've finally reached a point where I can start my assassin training (but still be Druidy). MAIN QUEST: To be come an elf druid-assassin...which basicall

    Hey!! Wow...long time, no update!! So, it's been a weird couple of weeks. This week, my partner's mom was visiting so we spent the week in a slightly stressful "holiday" state from which we are now recovering The week before was also incredibly stressful but as a result of school deadlines and supervisor issues. In terms of my goals, the only thing that I accomplished over the last two weeks was my school goals! I didn't play music, read a novel, or go jogging but I did sub for a friend's frisbee game (90 minutes of sprinting...) and we somehow won the entire championship for my own frisbee

    Hey, thanks for the support! Ya, this colleague is a bit of a problem. He seems to think he's in competition with me and there is no need for that. It's not even a competition to be the best student; it's a competition for rank and heirarchy! A bit ridiculous considering we're all poor grad students. I think the only positive strategy will be to just not "play" and continue to work through my personal school goals. Now that I know what he's capable of, I will refrain from discussing any part of my life with him. If he's not aware of what I'm doing, it will be harder for him to twist stories to

    Hello! Update from last week... not good. It turned out that my field work/field trip was such a super stressful experience that I was unable to do anything other than work on school. I had some fairly emotional moments (in private) as a result of continuously catching one of my overly competitive colleagues misinforming my supervisor of my progress behind my back (progress which he knows nothing about; just wanted to establish his superiority within the group and to our supervisor). I'm still incredibly furious about the situation...in short, his actions sent my emotional state spiralling

    Cool! Thanks for the tips! Update from last week! Ok, so I managed to sneak in ALL MY JOGGING TIME for the week!! I'm super proud of that. I, however, did not manage to play any instruments or read my novel I DID manage to finish a couple of knitting/crocheting projects that have been on my plate for a REALLY long time! My diet has been good and I've been walking to school most days (although my partner started a new job and has been kind enough to drop me off and/or pick me up from school some days). I really need to start doing more yoga because I'm feeling a bit stiff; my busy sch

    Yeah! I just started playing Ultimate last summer. I've been playing with the women's league and it's pretty fun! Hey! Sure, we can meet up for jogging! I generally keep a pretty slow pace and take walking breaks Ya, it occurred to me after I posted it that Regatta was only in St. John's, lol. We checked it out yesterday, watched a few of the races, but left pretty early due to the crowds. There were soooooooooo many people there yesterday that I was starting to feel claustrophobic! It felt a bit like what I imagine being a zombie would feel like...slowly shuffling along with a hoard of

    I did it!! I jogged!! It even took me 30 minutes (though it felt like the fastest jog ever...not sure why?). I took a break from school at 2:50pm, got changed, jogged from my department to the trail, jogged the trail to the far end of the lake and back, jogged back to the department just in time to run into my supervisor (who I haven't seen for 2-3 months...)! Now I'm back into my day clothes at 3:40pm. Yeah! The jog was actually pretty nice! I think I will try again this week. Doing really well on my school deadlines! Tomorrow is a holiday in Newfoundland, so I will get off-set a bit on my

    End of week 1 report: Well, I completed all my school related deadlines from last week!! I'll be starting another set of deadlines tomorrow (Monday). I didn't make it out jogging AT ALL... I'm very sad about that but I think I've figured out the issue I'm having with that goal: time. I can't seem to find the time to go jogging! So I've decided to go during school hours. I've washed all my gym stuff and I have it ready to take with me tomorrow morning! I spent a lot of time this week watching movies, tv, and playing video games. I only managed 1 hour out of 3 for music stuff. That's been a chal
