Hi Nerds! I'm Merrin. I haven't done a proper challenge for over a year at least. It may look like I have a lot of goals, but all of these fall in line with my daily schedule. I was going to Culinary school but had to withdraw last April. I need structure to thrive, so putting my goals down along with writing a daily schedule with my partner is really going to be good for me. 

 

We just bought a house! We drove 1100 miles across the country to move into a house built in 1900 (yes it's 120 years old) and used to be a funeral parlor! It's old and spooky and sometimes bats get in. It needs a lot of love and attention. (We spent most of October re-plumbing the entire basement.) 

 

I love sewing! I taught a Cosplay 101 class at Nerd Camp 2016. I don't have any LARP plans until January of 22, but that doesn't mean I can't sew a pile of things until then. 


Mercury: There's always something to be studied, and right now, that's language. 1 chapter Duolingo each day. Learning Japanese in the hopes that Duncan and I can go back in 2023.

Venus: all hobbies in moderation! 1 hour social media, 1 hour video games per day. No old games. No Animal Crossing.

Moon: Usagi's favorite thing is spending time with Mamoru. Ifrit and I were enjoying a more regular date night. 1x a week for games [Firefly, Lovecraft, Villains]

Mars: keeping the home clean is an act of duty and an act of love. 2x weekly, including house painting, hanging art, repairing windows/treatments, laundry, floors.
 
Jupiter: Mako-chan loves being in the kitchen. She shows her love for others by feeding them often. Cooking 3+ times a week, opposite chore days. Baking counts.

Saturn: Silence is a necessity. 2 hours downtime daily, reading, stitchwork. Finish pumpkin set, gem poster. Castle poster?

Uranus: No time for slacking. Ringfit, 1 section daily.
Neptune: Deep Submerge! Daily skincare, hydration goals.

[Oops it's like they go together on purpose.]

Pluto: Cosplay work, 3x week.

If I feel like there are other areas to improve, I'll branch out the challenge to the Starlights.

I felt like I could run forever, like I could smell the wind and feel the grass under my feet, and just run forever.

Oh if only the outside were covered in stone! 

 

There is a large cemetary only half a mile away. 

 

I think that house is clapboard, not stone. Midwest gothic. :D
