Radio Rowan- Challenge 2: The Shrine of Resurrection


Recommended Posts



I petered off at the end of the last challenge due to holiday stuff and also being real sick for a full week (I am very very bad at being sick and I kept trying to get up and wander around, and once I walked into a wall. Bad Rowan!), but I am happy to report that I did my week 4 workout just before getting sick, ate pretty well for the holidays, and was very very good with my dental hygiene. I just got back to Gotham last night, so everything is poised and ready for a new year, a new challenge, and a new age of not having to blow my nose every four minutes! Hooray! 


I am considering this to be challenge 2 of my respawn, and for a nice little New Year's theme and maybe the theme for the whole rest of the year, it's BREATH OF THE WILD! I love how the game starts, you are absolutely at level 1, and you have to explore, train, gather and solve to pull yourself up to hero level. You know the feeling. So this month, I'm keeping it basic.




- work out once a week! I have a membership to a rock climbing gym near my work starting on January 2nd, so just going and noodling around on the wall for an hour will be my plan for weekly workout - hopefully I will like it enough to go twice a week! I will pretend I am Link climbing around in Hyrule :3


- Daily movement: I am bringing my daily movement plan up to the following:


2X7 knee pushups

Five squats

Cat/cow spine motion

20 leg swings, each side each way

10 sec plank


My intention will be to get it done in the Secret Workout Room at my work on my lunch break every day. SECRET!




- Listen to spanish audiobook! I'm hoping for something originally written in spanish - any recs?

- Say something in spanish once a week. That's it. It can be to myself, to a nice dog, to my dad, whatever. Just gotta start getting the words out of my mouth.




White noise sleep five days a week! I listen to podcasts or audiobooks almost constantly, including when I sleep, and it is cluttering up my brain and making creativity harder. Before I start meditating, I want to clear some space, so I will be falling asleep to nature sounds five nights a week. Interesting. 





 Write and thumbnail a comic! I have an idea I've been wanting to execute for a long time, so this month I am going to just write it out, and thumbnail the panels. Maybe do some character study sketches. All my work will be shared at the end of the month.


Daily drawing: Handuary! Every day I will draw some hands and post them on the social medias. Hands are hard. Handuary.




Batch cooking! Food is so expensive, y'all. So very expensive. So in an effort to move myself closer to my budgeting goals, I am going to batch cook one thing every Sunday, and pack it for the week. Pics and recipes will be forthcoming! 


Five Drinks: You know what else is frikkin expensive is booze. Let's do five per week, see what it does for me. 




NF check in 2x week

Brush teeth 2x/day, floss daily


Ok, there it is. Not pretty yet, but it's out there! Will be checking back later to repost this in a way that is organized and nice, but right now I gotta shower and boogie. Hope everyone has a happy new year!

Your goals are so good! I especially feel you on the Spanish and art challenges; I keep letting my negative inner voices stop me from working on those, even though I want to. I bought some art classes on Udemy; I think next challenge my life goal will be to start working through them.

You'd think with all the problems in this world, there'd be more answers. It's not fair...
...But that's the way things are. The choice is yours."
