JenniferStark-Rise of the Winter Ranger


JenniferStark

Recommended Posts

The Elders gather at the top of Mt. Erin, eager to watch how the final act of the Winter Trials plays out.  It has been an unusually harsh winter.  The warriors have already endured crushing snows, treacherous floods and traveled great distances.  Yet there is still one more Trial before they can claim the honorable title: Winter Ranger.

Months ago, when the Trials began, some of the Elders voiced their doubts. They worried that one warrior in particular was not up to the task.

“She is too small†some said.

Her speed and agility are unmatched.

“She is too weak†they claimed.

Her will is strong; capable of turning boulders into feathers on the wind.

“But her temper,†they argued “She will panic at the first sign of trouble.â€

She has tamed the Red Mist, and harnessed its power for her own.

 

Now, as the final clash approaches, as one Ranger stands out above the rest, the voices of the Elders carry a new song.

 

“Her mind is as sharp and swift as her bladeâ€

“Did you know her sword is Valerian steel?â€

“I heard it has an obsidian core.â€

Now, they sit on the edge of their seats and watch for her sigil.

“The Badger will slice them to pieces.â€

 

Jennifer Stark steps out of the dark tunnel.  Giant shadows from fast moving clouds sweep across the ground and over a large hill on the far side of a vast field.  The bright light dances across her ebony armor.  Her golden shield blazes with a black and white badger. She is ready.

The only warning she got was the flash of sunlight off the blade of a spear in the distance.  A wave of White Walkers descended from the hill.  They were countless and angry, armed with swords of ice and shields of stone.

 

The Badger feels no fear.  She draws her sword and runs to greet her enemy.

Now imagine that the White Walkers want their taxes done.  That is my Monday.

 

 

Tax Season has ramped up and there is nothing left but the brutal gauntlet to the finish. 

 

Goals:

 

Productivity- More of the same here. Pushing the benchmark to 60% for the next six weeks.  Not sure if this is possible, we’ll see in six weeks.

 

Stress Management- Yoga every night before bed.  I have been doing this for the past week with great results.  This must continue.

 

Screen Free Time- I spend all day at work staring at a screen then I get home and end up doing more computer things or watching TV.  I need to build time into my day that does not include being in front of a screen.  More time for reading, playing with cats, cooking, cleaning and listening to podcasts.  I’m going to start off with 4 hours a week as a goal. If that turns out to be unreasonable I’ll make adjustments.spin_sword.gif

 

 

Let's get started!

Day 2 went amazingly well!  I had a long day but it was all visiting a client so I achieved 100% True Productitude for the day.

I got home kinda late with a massive headache so I poured myself a rum on the rocks and took a bubble bath.  I did some stretching after bath time, which isn't really yoga, but I decided to count it since it works toward my 'stress management' objectives.

 

Productitude, check!

Yoga/relaxocity, check!

Screen free time, check!

 

Time to get a cup of coffee and punch day three in the face!

Rum on the rocks?  That's my kind of drink.  Congrats on an amazing day two.  The rest of the challenge doesn't stand a chance against you.
