J3NN Emulates Harvey with her boxes

Recommended Posts

Spoiler: Gotham Season 5 Episode 5 Pena Dura


Harvey Bullock and Bruce Wayan had a moment in a recent episode. when all seems lost, when it feels like there is simply too much to deal with, he keeps going and keeps working. He tells Bruce that the little things truly matter, that helping just the one person can make all the difference in the world. 


I need to feel like the little things are going to turn the tide, so the scene in the spoiler really appealed to me. So this time we're going to work on my origin story a little bit. It's about going back to the basics. This challenge is about making sure I keep on doing the little things to create a foundation for my future moments when I shine. I'm not there yet, but I'm working on it. I may not ever become the heroine of any story but my own, but I will still contribute in the greater good, and I need to give myself credit for that.


So, like last time, I'm stealing @Bean Sidhe box idea. But I'm adding in something new. I want to spread joy. So I'm going to start exploring how and where I can do that... in small every day actions. So that will be a new section of boxes for me.


This is what I'll be working on:

I am glad the idea of boxes are helping.  I even used the term "extra credit" for the boxes that are over what the minimum is for each catergory. So if I do 8 boxes and only needed 6, I got 2 pts extra credit. (it makes the student that HAS TO have an A happy).


The spreading Joy sounds like a great idea. I am curious to see how that goes. Good luck

Thanks @Bean Sidhe for checking in. I ended up taking a sabbatical... or quitting... I just needed a break from checking boxes. I think I had too much and wasn't seeing progress, I don't know.


I'm back and going to try again... We'll see.

Not a problem.

I am sorry the boxes didn't work out. Sometimes a break can help. I will have to find your next challenge and try again. Sometimes there can be just too much going on to get it done.
