Ooh. That looks like.... the kind of thing I would like to be able to do with my leg! :P

 

ūüėā¬†¬† I can do like the lady in the back on the left at a solid 90 degrees ish, but if I'm tired the position drops rapidly with how high I can do that usually but HEY progress.

 

I can't hold my leg stupid high like the one in the front. I can do like...a grand battement that high ish maybe, but no way in hell I can HOLD it in that position. Someday maybe? Probably no. I actually prefer the look of the leg at 90 degrees because it looks less pretty to me with it so high she has to move her arm out of the way (but conditioning doesn't need to be pretty either I suppose so LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE SUPER FLEXY LADY!)

OH HEY I thought of a goal 3. It only took 2 weeks!

 

I decided goal 3 is do some fun dance stuff (Fitness Marshall or other videos) at least 3x per week. (I debated doing it daily but I want this to be separate from my dance conditioning!) Since the idea of a choreo goal was stressing me out this gets me doing actual fun dance things several times a week and I tend to like...only do formal dance type things so these more zumba/casual fun times thing is a nice change of pace and comparatively relaxing. Yay.

 

Also, I had Wednesday off this week and then today was insanely busy so it was like having a second, much worse Monday to the week. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH but I survived.

 

Also I've been kind of failing at my veggie goal because I forgot to restock my olive and pickle stores and I've still had a hard time getting myself to cook anything (and I also forgot to get more fresh veggies for cooking because I'd been too lazy to do it for a while and now I want to but no... I need to do a half n half run soon so I will remedy it then!)

I bought veggies to cook AND pickles and olives. FLUSH WITH THE NOM NOMSSSSSSS!

 

Meanwhile I have a massive deadline today that I can't work on until I get an email back from someone to approve our memo draft, and it's already noon and I'm trying not to panic. Aaaaaaah! It will work out somehow I suppose.

 

I do think I am going to rally and make it to cards against humanity zoom style tonight because social stuff sounds fun and after today I could use beers with friendsssss (even if remote). Last time we played on Halloween and I wore my Indiana Jones hat and did a silly Indiana Jones cave with the giant ball background and we ended up playing for like 4 hours (half ass, probably most of that spent laughing about stupid things and generally socializing. Good times!)

 

Meanwhile, I finally think? I have figured out what song I want to choreograph to for our little virtual dance show friends and I are putting together so yay. I've always wanted to do something to Imogen Heap "AHA" because it reminds me of a creepy circus kind of feel and it's kind of dark but also fun which is totally my aesthetic. ūüėā

 

OH! And I finally picked up my damn guitar for the first time in a week? Maybe 2? Not sure (once again I barely remember election week soo). And HOLY CRAP I did not neglect practicing for THAT long and yet my fingers were SO MAD and I had to cut it off at about 10 min of practice.  I have been really working on my grip strength with my X3 bar deadlifts so I am hoping that is also a contributor and my fingers didn't actually just get that much weaker!

1. Jealous.

2. I've had a similar experience when my fingies are tired from too much grip/strength stuff. It makes it tough to curl your hand around the guitar neck in the crazy way everyone wants you to.

I of course decided to neglect my guitar all weekend again because I feel like torturing my fingers by being super inconsistent. WOOPS. (TBF I usually tend to do guitar M-F and I am notoriously terrible at committing to any kind of set routine on the weekend because FREEDOOOOOM or something.)

 

Also,  I am trying to get better at finger strumming and...it is still awkward. Like, I can finger pick OK for riffs and its not awkward but strumming chords without a pick is just weird. Either way too quiet and I miss some of the notes of I discovered if use my nails I can make it sound closer to a pick but like, I don't know which part of the finger I'm supposed to be aiming to use? Finger pads? Nails? Both? Something else? I will keep experimenting and I figure the more I practice the less awkward it will feel.

I'm a little traumatized today because I had a mouse in a trap and the trap didn't kill the mousy like it's supposed to so I had to put it out of it's misery and..yeah. Sadness. I wish I could just not use traps and not kill them but cute as they are plague bearing critters in my garage is not OK. Adulting sucks sometimes.

This is turning out to be a weird few days. Just got news one of my uncles who is sort of estranged from the family and was homeless with lots of health issues passed away yesterday.

 

I have been doing challenge stuff mostly daily though (I was a little low on vegetables yesterday because lunch hour was spent dealing with the mouse situation and that kind of killed my appetite sooo yeah, but it is what it is.)  Maybe I will roast some veggies tonight for extra vegetable nom noms.

 

I also have drunk shakespeare again tonight and THANK GOODNESS drinking is encouraged because I'm in a weird headspace and that should help me be in a better mood! We are doing Much Ado About Nothing and I'm playing Borachio. I had debated trying to give myself an evil mustache or something for a costume but I don't think it's going to happen today. We shall see. Maybe I'll get inspired late in the afternoon you never know!

I ‚̧ԳŹ¬†Much Ado About Nothing. It is by far my favorite of Shakespeare's plays.

 

The Kenneth Branagh/Emma Thompson version from the 90s is just... *chef's kiss* (granted, I haven't watched it in about 15 years so I'm sure parts of it don't hold up, but in my early teens through early 20s mind, it is wonderful and hilarious.)

Sorry to hear about your family loss, and the horror of having to kill a mouse. Plague-bearing critters they might be, but still hard to face killing one. Hope the drunken shakespeare goes well and gets you some better headspace.

Sameeee. I haven't seen it in far too long. I debated trying to rent it somewhere in prep but not seeing it on any of my usual streaming platforms sadly so I'll have to do without. I think I just need to buy that on DVD so I have it around when I want some good shakespeare comedy/ period comedy type things!

 

Also I TOTALLY had no idea that the actor that plats Wilson on House was in that. It would have been way before I saw House I suppose but OMG. (Also realizing he was in Dead Poet's Society I was like WAIT WHAT how are you in so many good things I forgot about!!)

Also in the most me moment ever I realize that I forgot to each lunch because I was too busy playing with the cat and then making bread. Cooking dork cat lady problems. ūüėā

 

(Srsly though that cat has me so trained. I feel guilty if I don't play with her or pet her whenever she demands it to the detriment of me having time to eat lunch on my lunch hour etc. But she's so cute! And getting much better socialized and more friendly the more effort I put in sooooo it's worth it!)

Plus, playing with pets has a proven benefit to the health, so you could argue that it's still self-care!

So I ended out this challenge with a massive 4 1/2 day binge of playing No Man's Sky since it was on sale on Steam and I AM OBSESSED a little maybe. EXPLORE ALL THE THINGSSSSSSSSS!

 

I definitely struggled with my veggie goal this round so I am pondering how to handle that next round more successfully. I think a big part of my struggle right now is it's cold and it gets dark super early and I am in lazy snuggle up in blankets sloth mode all the time with no desire to DO ALL THE THINGS like I normally do. So yeah. Maybe I should embrace the laze (at least a little) and give myself cozyness goals for next round? Brainstorm time!
