Sciread77 Posted June 26, 2019 Report Share Posted June 26, 2019 The last challenge ended in the middle of an event for me. The first two days were the hardest, being the initial travel day and the “Load-Build-Rehearse-PerformTwice-Strike-Exit” days. The rest of the week is comparatively minor but still involves a lot more activity than usual and several minor challenges such as contesting a parking ticket and making minor vehicle repairs, in between showing up to all the cast’s auditions and other events to show support, presiding over the midnight curfew, and dealing with the annoying rule that prevents me from being in the same building as my wife. Moreover, once we get home I have a day of work and laundry then we leave early the next day for our cross-country road trip down Route 66 with the kiddos. That one will involves more planned hikes and whatever I do this week, I need to avoid injury so I’m good for the next event which will be longer and generally more intense. I’m absolutely not used to being up this late and some of the kids have early auditions. My plan is to nap after this first one this morning similar to yesterday. However, the towel service apparently goes from room to room banging on the door like monsters around 9ish so I had all the guys write whether they need new towels or not on the door. Because really there’s no reason for me to HAVE to kill anyone, and yesterday they fled upon seeing my grumpy countenance. The whole UNL campus is ours and the kids have been told to report suspicious characters who are loitering in the area. They usually see me wearing glasses and friendly print tees with Star Wars, Disney, Muppets, Harry Potter, etc on them, and most have known me for years. But I also collect Harley shirts and occasionally dress a bit like a biker. When I wore one with my contacts a whole group debated reporting a that shady biker guy who looked “really scary” in the lobby lol. That’s what I get for not having coffee before other humans see me. I’ll post goals in a bit. But as this challenge consists of 3 straight weeks of events, it’ll be a little different than usual. I’ll have event goals and post-event recovery goals. And hopefully, during some of the driving or other down time I’ll continue on with the family mythology stories. 5 Quote Adventurer, Half-Dwarf Chaotic-Good Paladin Ne me dites jamais les chances! ¡Nunca me digas las probabilidades!
