The Challenge Concludes!

 

The sounds of helicopters, sniper rifles, and the gate's cranking mechanism have become everyday background noises.  Another six weeks have passed since the Zombie outbreak breached the Swiss boarders.  My family and I have survived, but not without our share of hardships and grieving.  

 

Still..in the past six weeks, many great transformations have taken place.  Greatest of all, perhaps, is my new role as Runner 5.  Abel Township has officially taken us in, and in return for safe boarding I train with Doc three times a week and go on supply runs.  Sam and the doctor have also started sending me to outlying settlements for information.  I have made myself an asset to these people, and my family is safer for it.  In the coming weeks, my training will come to an end.  I will be a full-fledged members of the Abel Township Runners--scouting for intel, retrieving important supplies, and always, always keeping one step ahead of the Zoms.

 

Mission Goal #1: Zombie Preparedness Training (+ 5 STA)

Complete week six of Run, Zombies! 5k Training app

 

I did not complete week six.  In fact, I just completed week five today.  However!  I am pretty darn proud of myself for getting back on the wagon after a hospital stay threw off my momentum halfway through the challenge.  Yeah, I took a 10 day break, but 3 of those days I was kind of not allowed to leave a very small area.  The other seven days, I was adjusting to a new medication.  There is some big win here.  I did not let life deter me, only detour me.

 

Grade for Goal #1: 83% B+  (+ 4 STA awarded)

 

Mission Goal #2: Hone Scouting Skills (+ 1 STA +3 DEX)

Locate three geocaches aka “safeholds†and leave a sign for other survivors

 

I let bad weather, house organization, and other adventures get in the way of this goal during the last couple weeks.  I really enjoy it though, and we still have plans to go out on my third planned geocaching adventure.  Now, if someone could convince Swiss weather to conform to my needs...that'd be great mmkk?

 

Grade for Goal #2: 67% C+  (+ 1 STA + 1 DEX awarded)

 

Mission Goal #3: Monitor food rations (+ 3 CON)

Keep a food log for duration of challenge

 

This was going pretty well until I was hospitalized.  Not logging for several days in a row, even doing my backlogging after I got home, threw me off.  Then I started eating chocolate.  And this week, I started drinking wine.  And I just hate logging.  But I realized some poor eating behaviors that come along with not logging, so I will get back on it for now.  Blugh!

 

Grade for Goal #3: 67% C+  (+2 CON awarded)

 

Life Quest: (+ 2 CHA + 1 WIS)

Increase communication abilities with local survivors

 

This quest. Biiiiggg ol' fail here.  Because....I specifically said "study time."  I learned some really important things, though.  Things like, I learn German better when listening to the radio, talking to people at stores, or reading through the sales ads.  That stuff just sticks for me.  I am handling all sorts of actually important stuff with a much better understanding of the language.  And it isn't because I spent 1080 minutes in front of my computer doing lessons.  I did 400 minutes though.  And you know what?  I'm giving myself an extra 500 minutes for all the conversing and reading I did in German this challenge.  I think that is pretty damn fair, especially considering just being around people I know and love makes me so nervous and terrified I want to vomit and die.  So.  Yeah!  Actually, I'm giving myself full credit.  

 

Grade for Life Quest: 100%  (+ 2 CHA + 1 WIS awarded)

OVERALL GRADE: 79%

Well, I can understand it - and I don't really speak German. So you're right, it must be pretty terrible.

 

Just kidding!

Yeah, the "small head" part threw me off.  lol!  

 

I'm a dirty, dirty girl.

 

Also...I have a secret untold goal of maintaining my crazy RP zombie run blog during the entire challenge (and the ones to come).
