Jax's Trinket Ball: The Center Sphere

The Trinket Ball

Shifters carry what's called a Trinket, a locket or item of some sort that contains the energy of their soul. If another takes the Trinket, that person has control over the Shifter - they can command them to do their bidding. When Jax was taken to the otherworld, his Soul Energy was destroyed, and what remains of his Soul Energy had trickled from a fire into a tiny flame. His cup, now empty, had to be filled. For many years he wandered on lost, filling his emptiness with whatever he could find, and yet nothing satisfied him. After these many years of searching, he had finally had enough. He couldn't take the feelings of loss and loneliness anymore. With the spring air outside welcoming into the warmer weather, flowers blossoming and life returning to the barren ground after the cold of winter, he decided that now was the time to heal himself. First, it would start with his Soul Energy. He needed to get the flame higher, to form the round Energy Ball that would be sealed and carried around his neck.

 

1. Health & Fitness

 

A Shattered Soul

While Jax heals much faster than a human, his body isn't invincible and during his battles he does get injured. Many of his injuries have failed to heal properly, leaving him with unseen scars and pain that he struggles with every day. His body, although young, is damaged from his trials and tribulations. Of course, being forced into the World Between is a nightmare in itself. Although his memory is fragmented, it haunts him with experiences that he can't fully remember, but can't fully forget. The light extinguished in his eyes indicates the torment of his shattered Soul Energy. Back in the Living Realm, he needs to get his strengths back together before he can unravel the mystery of what happened to him in the Otherworld, and how to bring the rest of his pieces back home with him.

 

Goal: Schedule all medical appointments needed for the year to take care of existing health problems.

May 12th Update

 

I went to the dentist today, and I'm working on getting my teeth fixed up. I got the cleaning done, and next week I'm getting started on cavity fillings. There's five cavities... to start with. The enamel is basically ruined from having old-school braces, so unfortunately the glue wore off the enamel and the gumline cavities just keep growing where there are already fillings in place. I was kind of excited to get the goodie back from the dentist, surprisingly enough I actually like the dentist (I don't know if that's weird or not). I got prescription toothpaste and a sample of the whitening kit they sell at the dentist office. I also picked up the whitening version of the mouthwash I use. I also need gum surgery and that's expensive, it's like $1,000 and it's not covered by insurance because it's considered "superficial" (even though I have three teeth that will fall out if I don't get a gum graft on them, and my gums hurt).

 

I picked up a coffee and a pizza after this. I don't know if this is a "safe" forum quote on quote but I'm planning, or wanting, to come out as trans in June. I'm nervous about it, I doubt my family would be that accepting, and I also don't know who is safe to come out to. I'm also planning to get all of my medical care done this year, so I don't plan on seriously transitioning for about 6 months to about a year or so. Maybe sooner, if everything works out well.. I've actually been in the closet for a really long time, and I don't know who knows aside from a select few people that I've been thinking this way. I'm very unsocial so I don't know who would or wouldn't be surprised, or who on social media I need to keep private from or halt contact with if there are any. I also don't spend a lot of money on clothes or superficial things, so this might start showing up in my physical appearance pretty slowly. And I don't know if I mentioned, I'm super nervous.

 

After the dentist and the food & drink I had my second smoking cessation appointment, and I got my step 2 nicotine patches ordered to come to the pharmacy tomorrow.

I'm cutting down from 21 mg patches to 14 mg patches, and reducing the nicotine lozenges to 2-3 a day. I'm on day 25 and I'm pretty hyped that I'm almost at day 30 on the 17th.

Welcome to the forums! Is this your first challenge?

I would say yes. This is a welcoming community all about support, and only maybe 20% of that support has anything at all to do with fitness. Worth noting that, being a public forum, the posts are theoretically findable by anyone who knew what they were searching for. In practice though, I have tried to use Google to find my own past posts on here, or those of others, and have always failed miserably even when I knew exactly what I wanted.

Are these possible future Big Goals? 100 books in a year is ... a lot. Especially if all the books are adult-size, non-graphic books.

Yes it is my first challenge.

Thanks for telling me that.

Yes, those are possible big future goals. I was reading a book and I thought it had a lot of goals in it that applied to what I actually want to do in the next year, next few years. The 100 books in a year... that would be totally feasible if it was the start of the year. Mostly I read self-help books, but I thought about actually getting back into fictional books. I've been depressed and it's hard to motivate myself to partake in things I really enjoy - fictional books, movies, and video games being those things, and also creative hobbies. I'm kind of stuck.

I'm also trying to get back into reading some fiction. (My goal is a far less ambitious 1 fiction and 1 non-fiction per month though - and I'm still behind!) If you ever want recommendations, there's a reading challenge group as well.

 

A lot of your other possible future goals look fun, too. :)

I know how that feels. People sometimes do challenges which are "do something fun for myself" because that is the only way it will happen. Sometimes even telling themselves its okay if it's just for five minutes to get over the reluctance to do anything at all.

 

What are your other creative hobbies?

Drawing/art, RPG video games, tabletops (D&D/Pathfinder), and writing. I'd like to learn some new creative skills. I'm not sure. I'm not motivated right now. I started on the moleskin journal. Well, it's not really moleskin. But it's a journal, and I'm writing in it. It's mostly just a daily notebook, and I'm just writing about goals at work, things I'm doing, transitioning/gender dysphoria. I guess the point is that I'm trying to write in the new perspective of myself, as my new name that I plan to change to.

So, I did slip up once on smoking when I got drunk and mad because I was kicked out of a bar

[because my ex is friends with the bar owner and doesn't like me].

I ended up chain smoking 3-4 cigarettes. I didn't give up and I didn't start up again the next morning

when I got home. At 7:30am when I had to work at 12:00pm. I'm back on track now.

 

Thursday
