Twas the week before the Challenge, when all through the forums,

All the nerds were stirring, even the quietest lurkers.

The new forums were up in their subforums with care,

In hopes that the Challenges soon would be there.

The nerds were nestled all snug in their threads,

while visions of achieving their goals danced in their heads...

 


 

Welcome to the 2021 3-Week Challenge General Chat Thread!

 

Come one, come all. 

 

Pull up a chair, grab a drink, and settle on in. 

 

Is this your first challenge? AWESOME. Welcome! 

 

Struggling figuring out your goals (regardless of how long you've been a challenger!) ? Ask away here! 

 

 


Also, quick 'business' side note - We're going to be putting out a survey in the next week or two asking for feedback on the forums and things you'd like to see in 2022 - so please be on the look out for that! I'll be posting a thread about it in the Rebel Army Basecamp - but will also post the link here and make announcements to make it really hard to miss :)

Stupid question...what are the dates for this challenge?  I'm guessing it's Dec 5 through Dec 25, but I'm not seeing it anywhere.  Perhaps I'm failing my spot check? :)

 

Anyway, I'm here, and still trying to do something.  Happy Holidays, everyone!

I don't remember where I snagged the challenge dates but I have the 5th through the 25th recorded.

Yes, I think the challenge technically runs from the 5th to the 25th of December, with the first challenge of 2022 kicking off on January 2, but nothing is official until @spezzy waves her Mace Of Awesomocity. 🌟

This is a smol challenge, and for me it has smol goals:

  • Smol comforts
  • Work in smol bits
  • Smol improvements as I encounter my daily life

The challenge in this is much like a yoga balance challenge of using, extending, and flexing the small connective fibers to help create a foundation for strength. 

 

My biggest small comfort is definitely conversation and connection.

What are your favorite friendship movies? 

 

I watched Polar Express  with my daughter recently, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower earlier in the autumn. Definitely up for anything like that, or for witty and clever like the reimagining of Taming of the Shrew in Ten Things I Hate About You and the perfect moment that is The Map of Tiny Perfect Things.

 

Also, hot chocolate, tea, and cozy slippers. ;)

Hmm, maybe The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, especially if your daughter is in her tweens/teens? If you don't mind venturing into fantasy, Stardust might be a good option!

Oooo, I haven't seen either of those (though I think I read the book of Sisterhood, and I definitely read Stardust). My daughter is 10, but I'm always up to add a good friendship movie on my own. 🙂 Thank you!

Happy Holidays everyone!

I'm here to keep working on the same goals and figure out how to finagle my life into being healthier in general! I've finally gotten a grasp on a few small things, just trying to snowball them into bigger changes :)

No problem - Stardust is one of my favourite movies! The movie version has a more whimsical and lighthearted tone than the book. It has romantic elements, not just platonic friendship, but I'd guess that would be fine based on the other movies you mentioned?

 

Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants may be suitable/interesting for a 10 y.o., too - I was thinking a little older would be ideal since she'd be at a similar "transition" age and perhaps able to relate to the characters more. As you may remember from the book, there are some challenging themes (e.g., divorce, death), but the focus is definitely on friendship!

Thanks for this!

I chose Stardust, and I'm watching the Michelle Pfeiffer transformation and said, "Straight masterpiece!"
