  1. I don't remember the last time I did a challenge here. So now I'm gonna come in late and set up shop like I've never been away. Because why not?! (and, uh, I missed you folks, you know?) Long story short, I have a damn good reason for not being here for so long and due to circumstances being what they are now, it seems like a good time to dip back in and see what happens. Life is actually pretty good right now. I've worked hard to make that happen and would really quite like to keep it that way. There are, however, a few sticking points that I do need the extra accountability for. So now I'm back for some habit building. Nope! Guess who started adding more junk back into their diet again? Yeah, not a good move on my part, so that's stops now. Anything already in my home is fair game (which is minimal and a rule because I will absolutely not throw out edible food), but from hereon out I will not buy any chocolate/cake/ice cream/etc or scrounge it from the work canteen. Even if it's free. Yep! Exercise is erratic at best right now. I am in the habit of doing at least one walking commute per workday, which means at least three miles walked at least five days a week. And that's great, but it isn't pushing me towards any of my goals. Right now the focus is mobility, so what I will do is something mobility based every day. Simple as that. Oop! I have a lot going on right now. Between work, my two unofficial and very voluntary 'jobs', two very different avenues of self-guided learning, running a homebrew based D&D campaign and participating in two others, and the sheer amount of home based stuff that needs doing and sorting and redoing and so on, well... I need to relearn how to structure and manage my time so that I don't run myself into the ground. Not sure how to work things beyond 'do things requiring brainpower in the morning', so this is probably going to be less of a goal and more of a collection of musing and thoughts about different things I try. And that's that on that!
  2. I will oh-so-stealthily sneak to your table. Or under it, depending on what the dice have to say...
  3. *stealthily sneaks a mug of coffee bigger than they are* Good thing there's always a dark enough corner...
  4. Alright, so I have kinda the worst at this so far. I hit a bump right out of the gate, a difficult few work days coming at the same time as some news that hit me quite hard. But. I have done my wallowing, I am crawling out of my depression hole once more, I'm leaning more and more into things that make me feel good, and things are looking up. And my positive for the day? Apparently I've still got 'it', whatever 'it' may be! Will catch up with folks over the next few days.
  5. GOOD LUCK! (and remember to at least put a bucket under any disconnected pipes!)
  6. Happy belated birthday to Ghostess!
  7. Heh, I'd have thought the dwarf of all people would have made his con saves, but the dice gods were not with him!
  8. I gave the poor guy a chance to roll a con save every turn until the end of combat, but his rolls were all abysmal... Luckily, this has made the shift into an entirely homebrewed campaign, so it gives me some more freedom with lycanthropy. I'm still pinning down the finer details, but I think I've got something manageable at the moment.
  9. ZERO WEEK I had very few aims for today, and what aims I had, I believe I achieved them. My positive for the day is that I delivered my D&D session, the one I've been so excited about, and I delivered it well enough for Mr Gooner, who plays our cleric (and very freshly bitten wereboar!), to say it was the best session yet. That felt good. That felt really, really damned good. And there is my teeny tiny positive for the day!
  10. It is indeed, and I am absolutely going to do everything that I can to help myself continue along the way!
  11. ZERO WEEK I haven't really started this, or as much as you can start a goalless challenge, anyway, but I think I have something of an idea of what I might do with this space for the next four weeks. First, though... I actually figured out why I'm having such a hard time with goals right now, and that's because I've actually achieved something I've been trying to achieve for as long as I can remember. I'm consistently functional. I'm consistently happy. I'm recovering. That's something I counted on trying to reach for my whole life, and now I'm here all of a sudden and I just... don't actually know what comes next. But you know what? That's great! As for using this space... I want to be consistent in coming here, so I'll say that every day I will come here, and the least I will do is update and post something positive about my day. Doesn't have to be a big thing, could be anything at all so long as it brought me happiness. I like being happy, and what's more, I love sharing that with others. I want to help other people be happy. That's what I've got so far. Maybe I'll add more, and maybe I won't. There's no pressure this time around, none at all. As for today's happy? I finished my session plan for tomorrow's D&D session. This is the most excited I've ever felt about running a session, and quite possibly the most excited I've ever felt about any session at all. Everything leading up to this session has been an introduction of sorts, and now the story kicks in hard. And I can't wait to see how it goes!
  12. Follow along I might even learn a thing or two from you, from the sound of it!
  13. Wait, hold on, something is amiss here... Could it be...? *gasp* No gifs? Here of all places?! Well, I guess we'd all better step up our giffing efforts!
  14. A full armour sleeve would be pretty badass, gotta say!
  15. Heh, yeah, something like that! I've got a rough idea of that. Maybe it's time to get more detailed about it... Thanks!
  16. I don't know, but I think we should go with dingii, that's a fun word to say!
  17. I'm wanting to finally make a start on my botanical sleeve, though I need to have a discussion with the artist to decide on just how to proceed. Might be a case of half sleeve first, then later on extending it into a full sleeve. Or it might just be piece by piece, then the last thing will be the background to bring it all together nicely. I'm holding off messaging just now because the studio has hundred of appointments to rebook before reopening! Agreed!
  18. It really can be. Finding a goal is definitely going to be a challenge in and of itself this time! Appreciate that, and thank you! ❤️
  19. Of course I'm following this, also I AM SO HAPPY TO HEAR YOU'RE SO HAPPY IT IS A MARVELOUS THING! Also, we appear to have the same aim. Although the dingus in my challenge is more cryptid shaped!
  20. Following along, of course! I'm loving the tattoo so far! It's also feeding my itch to jump back into a tattoo studio as soon as they open up again... ...you have my attention!
  21. ...yep. Same. Akido in a nature rich environment sounds like an actual delight, I have to say.
