SomeGuyFromScotland XV: Generic Challenge


Recommended Posts

Generic Challenge! Quality guaranteed**!

 

I'm under no illusions that this is going to be, and probably needs to be, a "Just Get Through It" challenge. The last couple of months have been a spiral of depression, work stresses, poor eating, family strains, and general arseyness. The work pressure and other time constraints aren't going to improve much over the next few weeks, so I'm going to just do what I can, when I can, where I can, and... Just Get Through It.

 

product-5212021.jpg Chocolate: Try not to eat it wherever possible.

generic_energy_drink.jpg Energy Drinks: Completely out of bounds.

 

Things which will be getting To Done:

 

Rehearse for and perform in Hope & Glory.

Potentially start rehearsing for Beauty & the Beast.

Daily Bible study - essential.

Decorate living room - must be completed by mid December.

Paint or draw whenever time permits.

Hygge like a muhfuh! Screw you, Daily Mash!

Drink only water and black coffee if possible. Try to cut out diet cola. Red wine is exempt, because as we've covered before, wine = salad.

Rehab this stupid mouse shoulder.

Creativity: Found and Freed

 

Something I was working on during the last challenge. I ended up framing it and gifting it to the person who inspired it.

I'm more than adequate. Leave Kanye out of this.

First Few Days Update!

 

It's been a rocky road over the last few weeks. However, I'm here, and that's what counts. Last night was spent doing as little as possible, which was just what the doctor ordered after an insane few days. Lit some candles, had a nice glass of Jamesons, and disappeared down a YouTube rabbit hole being amused by Henry Rollins speaking shows - that man never ceases to inspire and entertain me - punctuated by the most bizarre detour into banjo covers of Slayer, which might be the greatest thing I've ever seen.

When I first read that I thought "What even?" but then I watched the video and realized it actually works.  You were far down the rabbit hole for sure.  

 

Glad you got a day of relaxation and banjoing.

Week 1 Recap

 

One of the worst weeks of my life, just when I needed it least. The nightmare scenario of everything going wrong which possibly could at work, followed by the weekend from hell. Saturday night was bonfire night in the UK, that special time of year when it's perfectly acceptable for the socially unsavoury to be handling explosives. Normally my pets just about cope with it, we do the best we can to keep them calm. This year, though, little Dex, my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, didn't do well. He got stressed to the point where he collapsed and had a seizure, meaning a 3am, cripplingly expensive, trip to the emergency vet, where it didn't look like he was going to pull through. In the end, he survived, we got him home on Sunday night, and I worked from home for a couple of days just to keep an eye on him. Our own vet checked him out on Monday morning, and is happy enough that he's on the mend, and doesn't need to see a cardiologist for now, but it's something we're going to have to be aware of in future.

 

Goal-wise, no energy drinks, slipped up on the chocolate a few times (STRESS!), kept up on my reading, and rehearsals for this coming weekend have been going well.

*FECKING MASSIVE HUG*

 

I'm sorry your week's been terrible. I hope Dex keeps getting better, that must've been really horrible to go through for all of you. You did really well to stick to your goals so much with all that hanging over your head.

What an awful way to have to spend the weekend.  Glad to hear little Dex is making a recovery. Hopefully this week will be better, although this week is just about done so let's hope next week is good too.
