Day 1

I wake up in a modestly furnished apartment... For the most part. There are a few extravagant creature comforts procured by my artificer/rogue significant other. Two cats weave underfoot as I prepare breakfast. 
 
After breakfast, it's time to scheme and plan. I find I miss my adventuring and the questing lifestyle. It's time to get back into shape! There's a lot that's been lost on my more academic druish pursuits, but the core values are the same. I need something physical, something more martial. So, ranger shall ranger. While I'm no archdruid, I took a chance at starting over and binding my magic temporarily so I can't use it as a crutch. 
 
My wisdom and intelligence stats are by far the most cultivated... guess nothing to it other than attack the day!

 

Actions!

Clear the Oblex Spawn from the apartment --> stick to the cleaning schedule, or they will come back in force

I love gamey challenges.  Gamey challenges are my fav!  Themey challenges too.  :D

Day 1 Continuted:

___

Well, the journey through the dungeon was mostly uneventful. I did encounter a couple of oblex spawn at the dumpster (the residents of my apartment complex cannot figure out how to break down boxes or recycle them -- this also happens at the end of each month so people are also just throwing their crap away that they can't fit into their moving van or are unwilling to take to the thrift store... ugh I hate all people). Then on the way out there was one very minor kobold (largest freaking brown anole I've ever seen! he was impressive). No loot to speak of... but there's always tomorrow.

 

I found some skeletons skulking about down at the edge of the forest. Luckily we're all low level here (for now) so they were dusted fairly easily.... (just did one full body circuit).

I had some bad rolls so I got pushed to the ground, but I got back up again. I didn't pull my punches with some well timed lunges. Those boney bastards were quick though, so there was still plenty of opportunity to dodge. Safe for another night. (1 x 12: push ups, lunges (per side), 40 lb band rows forward grip, squats, 40 lb band rows reverse grip, leg raises, 40 lb triceps extensions).

 

I just finished up with the ritualistic cleansing of the apartment spawn in some key locations. There are still a few lurking around, but we shall beat them back this week! Now, if I can just solicit the two familiars to help with the cleaning...

Day 2

__

The Otto is attempting to play bard this morning, singing the song of his people. The Penelope was suspiciously absent from the awakening ritual, but never misses a meal. I learned through the grape vine that the local watering hole was beset with steam mephit. It was an interesting challenge to go at them with fists rather than spells. Minor burn damage, but nothing that can't be healed with a long rest and some stocked potions. Needless to say, I wasn't up for battling with the darklings tonight, but I did do some light stretches after the battle with the steam bois.

Day 3

__

 

Not feeling the story telling aspect of today. I did a walk, was feeling kinda tired today. Weather had been rainy most of the day. After work it cleared up though. I did some stretching. I have gotten most of the daily cleaning done. I need to go grab a rag and wipe down the stove.... I can do the thing, I can do the thing. I'll go do the thing.

The most important part is getting the things done :D Great job! YOU CAN DO THE THING!

And now I have two weeks worth of food in my pantry, fridge and freezer. Didn't realize I would need to become a microprepper for fear of the outcome of a democratic election, but here we are.

 

*sigh* At least it is gorgeous today. 

 

Setting up the all Hallow's Eve festivities -->

  1. It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown (0:25)
  2. The Simpson's Tree House of Horror V, VI, VII, XII (01:30)
  3. Hocus Pocus (01:35)
  4. Casper (the one from the 90's) (01:41)
  5. Ghost Busters (01:45)
  6. Ghost Busters II (01:48)
  7. Young Frankenstein (01:42)
  8. Rocky Horror Picture Show (1:40)

I could add The Adam's Family, Adam's Family Values, and Stardust from Netflix.... but I already have 12-hours of DVD & Bluray wholesome horror which I think should be plenty.

 

Between each round of terror, do one lap around the apartment complex and choose one from below:

  • 12-lunges (per side)
  • 12-push ups
  • 12-squats
  • 12-triceps dips
  • 12-leg raises
  • 12-40-lb band rows over hand grip
  • 12-40-lb band rows under hand grip

And one - two of the following 

  • clean the roomba
  • clean the cat water bowl
  • clean the stove top
  • take out the recycling
  • brush the cats
  • dust off the computer screens
  • water the plants
  • put the clean dishes away
  • load the dirty dishes into the dishwasher
  • clean the bathroom sink
  • clean the litter box
  • throw the laundry in the washing machine
  • toss the laundry in the dryer

I'm thinking of doing a couple of garden cream cheese stuffed jalapeno's with a bacon wrapping alongside some sweet potato tortilla chip chilaquiles for dinner. Or pho, could do pho.

What were you learning about?

 

Marine biology, Wetland ecology, and environmental science. I still work in environmental science, but I no longer have a field component and it is all remote sensing assessment and policy related. Still interesting and still a lot to learn, but not quite as fulfilling as when I could go out in the field occasionally or be in the lab analyzing samples.
