Character Details

  1. Oh my god, that is SUCH a cool place to go walking. It's weird to look at large bodies of water in the summer and be like, "hm, a few months ago I was standing right there!" also, TAXIDERMY AS A HOBBY! (have you read Kristen Arnett's Mostly Dead Things? It is an excellent if somewhat bizarre novel about taxidermy)
  2. Kind of to both! I'm currently doing a part-time degree very slowly, so it's kinda a hobby that will hopefully one day lead to a career change/more career options. And... I can't say I thoroughly absorbed the information in the background. It was more a "turn unknown unknowns into known unknowns" kind of mission. It's reading week next week and I need to go back and re-learn a whole bunch of trig that I missed when the we lost a week of school to the very first COVID shutdown last year, which happened to be Let's Learn Trig Identities week in my precalc class. Practice ✔️ Re
  3. Practice ✔️ Reeds ❌ Calculus ✔️ Linear Algebra Write ❌ Tickets ✅ Walk✔️ (I'm counting going outside for any purpose for this, and today it was walking to the shop to pick up my car. It counts as the day's walk when it's -30 out!) Workout ✔️ Behold today's artistic product: the world's most boring workout video, handstand holds to a soundtrack of trigonometric substitution. https://vimeo.com/511877198/06ea7e4105
  4. Practice ✔️ Reeds ❌ Calculus ❌ Linear Algebra ✔️ Write ✔️ Tickets ✅ Walk✔️ Workout ✔️
  5. Neon pink makeup! Actually doing work! Sounds like a great day! \o/
  6. Yeah! I think this is also the rationale behind the kip to front hip circle being in... whatever level of JO routine it's in. For some reason it just never occurred to me that I, personally, could also do progressions for things Hahaha it's TRUE. Thank you! Practice ❌ Reeds ❌ Calculus ✔️ Linear Algebra ✔️ Write ✅ Tickets ✔️ Walk✔️ Workout ❌ Ugh, preparing for my midterms/doing the midterms/being upset about the midterms pretty much ate my whole day, haha. They weren't terrible, but. I am still upset about
  7. Practice ✔️ Reeds ✔️ Calculus ✔️ Linear Algebra ✔️ (I have midterms in BOTH classes tomorrow, back-to-back, the most nerve-wracking thing about which is trying to upload the goddamn PDFs to the school's servers in time to get a grade and then show up to start the next one. Ugh. So, most of my day was spent preparing for that, somewhat ineffectually.) Write ❌ Tickets ✅ Walk✔️ Workout ✔️ I did a bit of handstand and flexibility stuff in the morning, and then went to gymnastics tonight. I was thinking on the way how lucky I am to be able to go--
  8. Well, two sets of one minute Thank you! My shoulders in handstand are getting a lot better with all the backbending work. Oof. Yeah, that sounds really hard. As much as I don't like zoom classes, I'm really thankful that I have them at least as a thing I'm theoretically supposed to go to. 👀 Thanks!
  9. (I'M GONNA TRACK THINGS. ✔️= complete, ✅=partially complete, ❌=not done) Today: Practice ✔️ Reeds ✔️ Calculus ✔️ Linear Algebra ✔️ Write ✅ about 500 words? Tickets ✔️ Walk✔️ Workout ✔️ Got 2 minute-long handstands with legs in both splits, some OK balances, and the best tick-tock I've managed so far (on the right leg, still collapsing every time when I try it on the left.) My backbending is feeling really good-- I even tried a bridge against a wall to see where I was re. armpits/chest being able o touch the wall but the answer is still
  10. How do you get your current challenge to show up in the sidebar under your icon? 🤯
  11. Congrats! ❤️ And I have been absent/lurking, but just wanted to say that reading through everyone's thoughts in this thread has been very helpful to me, too, so thank you for prompting them and making space for these conversations.
  12. Last Challenge, I said that I was going to try to figure out something to do with scheduling this time. My situation is basically this: I am a professional musician with a full-time orchestra job. At the moment, I'm being paid to stay home; but I need to a) prepare for a livestream recital I'm a part of in a little mover a month, and b) keep practicing because eventually we're going to go back to work and I need to not suck. I'm also in school part time and have a bunch of hobbies that I want to do every day (including Assassining!) So the format of my days is basically a whole bun
  13. Is this challenge... over? Is this me, coming back to report actual progress on the thing I said I wanted to do this challenge? UNPRECEDENTED. I actually say some big flexibility gains in the past couple weeks! I think part of it is the active flexibility work, and part of it is just the fact of actually doing flexibility stuff for a long enough time to get properly warmed up. In any case, here's a few days ago when I realized that I could a) touch my toe to my head in both splits, which previously I had only managed on the right leg by reaching back to grab the foot, and b) allllm
  14. Ahh, I remember this, haha! It suddenly seemed like everyone I knew was like "WHAT, I [have an inner monologue/don't have an inner monologue], I can't believe there are people who [don't have one/do have one]!"
