          Not a very good day for writing. Too many things to do today, and I spent much of my time planning and doing something that is due to Saturday. I'm still pending on that.

          All I could do was just create a D&D character, and I'm not finished with it. The background from it is related to the story from my campaign, so I need to connect it. It's slightly a pain in the ass to go back and forth, and I thought I made several mistakes, but in the end, I think it turned out pretty good. So, for now, two out of four are ready.

          I'm going to use D&D to practice some writing techniques too.

          Life happens, but I did stuff today. I wish I did more, though.

            I'm not sure whether I should do Side Kicks or Burpees for the Ornament, but the Snowfight will be significantly shorter this year. Better get the spreadsheet ready, though

              Well, today was the day of plans getting cancelled. I cancelled anything related with yoga (except Virasana) today because I think I did something wrong yesterday, so I preferred to take a break from it. Then, I cancelled out Burpees because I knew I was going to have a busy day. Then, I cancelled Fit December because I came home really, really late, and I had to cancel any plans I had for writing, drawing, and even learning math! I almost did cancel Ironheart too!

              Man, the day wasn't supposed to be this busy. Tomorrow, I'm selling mystery books (meaning you don't know what you're purchasing), and I haven't finished wrapping them yet. I was doing that after work today, ut then I had to go out to an opening of a community market garden far from home. It was great, and fun, and everything, but it lasted for so long... The garden is pretty nice, although the land is very poor, but there are good things that grow quick. My issue is the fig tree that is growing near a patch dedicated to lemons, so I'm slightly concerned what could happen with it. Still, they have about everything. Some of those plants came from the ones that we have at the community center, so it was good to see how everything is growing!

              There was a vineyard made out of passion fruit trees (there was passion fruit underneath the vineyard too), and a lot of pigeon peas ready for harvest. They have harvested crops that are quick to grow. An acerola cherry tree is growing right next to an avocado tree and a bajan ackee tree. Hopefully, the bajan ackee tree doesn't get stoned too much, because any bajan ackee tree seen on the streets is doomed to be a victim of kids and teenagers throwing stones to the branches to get the fruit, which is pretty good, not going to lie. That and the mango trees are the ones doomed to that. Avocado trees, not so much. If the birds aren't dropping the avocados, then it's one neighbor who always has some kind of DIY apparatus that fishes for the avocados without the use of a ladder. It's usualy a long stick with some sort of claw and a small bucket.

              I digress. Bananas, they also have them. Figs, lemons, tangerines... I'm not sure if they planted oranges, but maybe they will. They also have an earthworm colony they take care of,, and a small patch for medicinal plants. It's a pretty big place, so there's lots of space and lots of variety! I'm almost inclined to give them garlic, but maybe when I have more seedlings with me... probably after this harvest.

              We stayed there until night, chatting and just enjoying nature in general. Even though I cancelled everything, it was great to be out of the house for once.

                Second day selling stuff. Apparently, covering the books and make them blind dates brought more eyes to them, as in, people were curious, but I couldn't sell the books... but at least I got one sale, and that's a start.

                It was still a tiring day, but I didn't let that get in the way of Burpees! Basic Burpees, though.

                I'm still skipping yoga, but I might return to it tomorrow.

                By the way, that last exercise on Ironheart? Way too hard with Dumbbells! I knew it was going to be hard, but I was not expecting something harder.

                  I'm tired! I don't like days where I do nothing but sit down... after having a very late lunch, I pretty much cancelled everything...

                  Besides, it's not like I was home on the morning. I actually gathered 75% of my D&D party to get the character sheets in order, have a better idea on how to guide the story, and tell them what the campaign and universe was going to be about. All that remains is just adding some lore and fun stuff. Also, designing maps!

                  Thankfully, I have another grid notebook; the same one I used to doodle pixel art a couple of days ago. I can draw dungeon maps and inside locations over there, and the actual maps from towns and the world map can be done on regular paper. One of my friends already did a big grid to have a bigger visual during gameplay so we can use it for combat, plus we can also use the other side to draw the world map.

                  When I came home, all I could think of was one story, and I spent my day writing it... and being angry at it because I got stuck! And the reason I'm stuck is because I'm sleepy. I'm tired. I didn't sleep enough last night, and I'm kind of forcing myself to write it...

                  And I have a shift tomorrow... And I'm not going to be able to write during my shift...

                  I have to train tomorrow too, yes or yes. I shall be punished for my lazyness, because I've been dropping my rhythm for a while now.

                  I'm bringing back yoga, though. The reason I stopped it's because I think I hurt myself during one session of Chandra Namaskar. My head ran over from something as simple as a cramp to something more worrying, like a hernia. Maybe it was just a pulled muscle, as the morning after I was ok. Bad form. It happened right in one asana in which I wasn't doing well, and it hurt.

                    Slight headache, I'm going to bed soon.

                    Not much done... Workout was... ok, I guess. It's hard to concentrate when the power went out for five times in total; three of which were related to technical problems on the wiring upon the streets. I swear, if it wasn't because of the power going out, I thought another revolution, a coup or a civil war broke out. I couldn't even focus reading.

                    But at least I got training done. Still, I skipped the asanas tonight, and the plank. Headache, as I stated.

                    I couldn't draw, I couldn't do math... I did write, though. Mostly planning and making strategies for marketing, and then world building. Nothing related to D&D today. I decided to read more and write less. Tomorrow will probably be the opposite. I want to finish The Light Fantastic and the entire Rincewind series before going for the Watch series. Death is going to be the last.

                    My mom also wants me to make a workout routine for her. The day after she came out of the shrink, upon his recommendation she started to walk very early in the morning, and is now routine for her, up to the point that she always films the sunrise. I... don't know what to give her. She used to be quite athletic back when she was younger, and even on her mid 60s, she is still pretty active. She is using the machines from the park, but I don't know which ones. All I know is that she wants to do Sit-ups once again.

                    IRONHEART is almost over. I don't want it to be over, and at the same time, I want to finish it just so I can have some chill time the rest of the month. I'll probably restart next year, with Fireheart again. Not chasing any badges for now, except for challenges. Challenges are always worth chasing.

                      I was overwhelmed with my own goals for the day, I suppose... Nevertheless, I did a couple of them. It turns out I need to learn how to organize myself better, as I'm pretty much a slave of time and not the other way around. Not to mention, my second chance at the internship is coming right up on the 10th of January. By the early weeks of May, I'll probably be done with that chapter of life and people will finally stop annoying me from that.

                      That means I need to manage my time better. Obsidian works fantastic to make to-do lists and trace down goals for the day, especially with the Markdown function that allows to tick tasks done and goals reached, however, I can't shuffle around my phone all the time. I need something more traditional, so I'll make some investment. If it wasn't because I'm doing this mostly because of university, I'd be reluctant on purchasing a planner. I can't use an app, though, most of them are calendars, and for to-do lists, Obsidian works perfectly.

                      Still, I'm taking the rest of the month to experiment with it. I think I traced down way too many goals and I only accomplished two, partially... Three, if I count the university thing I had to do on the morning. Now, I'm just hoping everything turns out ok, and I am not going to fail Týr like I did this year.

                      In other news, the bald spot that I found seems to be growing some hair back. I combed my hair after shower, and I noticed that it wasn't there. Upon checking by someone else, I was told that hair was growing. That's... quite a relief, honestly. I'm not sure what the hell it was, and I only washed my hair with rosemary water twice. I need to cut it, though, but I'm waiting for the right moon. According to the calendar, this month isn't really good for it. Speaking of, it is quite odd that the best days to transplant the garlic seedlings are Christmas' eve and Christmas. They are quite big, and ready to grow on a good place.

                      Ticked another Kickboxing day btw. I'm still figuring out my fitness goals for the next year, but one of them involves walking with my mom on the mornings, and while she works out, I'll probably practice kali or krav magá combatives, or do a shadow(kick)boxing drill... Perhaps the Side Kicks Practice workout or the Turning Kicks Practice workout? I might attempt to do Dead Hangs since there are Pull-up bars over there.

                      IRONHEART has been completed. I didn't want it to be over, and at the same time, I wanted to finish it. Maybe I should think about a Strength program next, but I'm not doing Ironborn just yet. Why? Because 30 Days of Gravity is next.

                      Once I figure out how things are going to fall upon next year, 30 Days of Gravity will be the next badge. For January, though, Fireheart again.
