                      It's a day of planting seeds; of starting out new projects. Only today couldn't have been a more perfect day to start everything.

                      I do have better chances at my internship now than last year. However, I still need to pull some ears out and remember people at the non-profit that I'm not going to be as committed. I only have two things to be focused only: the internship and writing. Sleight of hand and cardistry only falls into place because I'm using it so that I keep my hands busy and don't bring my nails into my mouth, something that I didn't practice today because... I was quite busy, and I even forgot the deck... twice.

                      I skipped guitar today, though, and I had no intentions to do so. Nevertheless, I got my workout done quick, plus added the 100 Push-ups. Not a bad day for fitness, but to me... It wasn't a bad day, but it was not good.

                      The morning was fruitful, though. Tomorrow, I'll report back to my teacher and start working on my paper already. It's just great that I don't have to pull my hair out trying to think outside of the box way too much now that I may have a chance to do my thing.

                        Well, it's beginning. I'm going to be working with guitars, so everything is going to be easy for me to handle. I've been already practicing a lot, and decided to take one of the plenty lute tunes from Skyrim. I'm not sure if the arrangement is easy or it's because I have the technique, but it was way easier than I expected for it to be. I'll link it down below.

                        Not much of working out today; it was more of a lazy day. However, a lot of good things happened. After not seeing him for quite a while, I finally got to hug my dad once again! It was one of the greatest things, and he was pretty excited to see all about my plants.

                        I also think I managed to finally learned the new move I started on sleight of hand. Now, it's a matter of polishing it and going back to a couple of previous moves that I need to practice some more. Of course, those two are difficult to do out of home, because the cards will always fall. Not only that, but I think I need a new pack. All 52 cards are folded pretty badly, especially the three of spades. I can't practice one of the moves that I already dominate with the same finesse because I need to flick the cards, but since they are folded, they don't flick. They're still good for other things.

                        I've heard from other magicians that Fournier is not a good brand either. They tend to stick to each other. For practicing cuts and some shuffles are great, but for other things, they are outright annoying. It's difficult to find others because Fournier kinda has a monopoly on cards around here.

                        If I manage to buy a new deck, I'm going to try and buy a Spanish-suited deck too. The big difference is the size and the amount of cards: instead of the 52 that an English deck has, this one has 40 to 48. Suits pretty much have the same value. If I was a girl who played, a Spanish-suited deck would be necessary for playing Truco, but the rules of it are way too complex, and it's like everyone has different rules... I don't know, I like playing cards, but the games are a bit of a headache.

                        Someone asked me if I know how to play p贸ker, which was something I did not know how to answer. Instead, I just sprung the deck.

                        Cardistry, yeah, that's what I was talking about. Now that I have the move perfectly done, I need a mirror to practice, because I think anyone can see what I'm doing when they're not supposed to.

                              Well, I didn't post last night. I took a break from everything. I thought I was going to write professionally at night, but I just went to bed early. I slept really late the night before and woke up earlier next...

                              I wasn't going to do Burpees, but then, 30 Days of HIIT happened. I counted a total of 121 Burpees, which is a new record for a workout... with the exception that I took the entire minute break instead of 30 seconds, so I'm not counting it. I've done more Burpees on a day than that. Of course, that is counting a break longer than 30 seconds.

                              I didn't play guitar, but I did handle the deck. I'm still practicing some moves and haven't tried a new one yet. I want to make the ones I have on my small repertoire clean before going for more. So far, it's better than a stress ball.

                                Zero Session is set up to happen this weekend. I already finished everything that's going to happen, with the exception of the opening words. Then, I figured, because I'm not planning for anyone to die, I added a new rule to the game, and a couple of extras that were shamelessly stolen from The Elder Scrolls: birthsigns and temporary blessings from the gods in exchange for sacrifices. Any Dungeon Master can tell me if it's normal to put things at a short notice? It might be a stupid question, though.

                                Other than that, today I skipped the Burpees. And almost skipped workout altogether. Right now, I guess everything is set in motion for the internship, so I'm going tomorrow afternoon to start checking the place out at a deeper level, and answer some questions before I start writing down any ideas I have for those four weeks. It might be an even better idea to wait until Monday, but I would much prefer to get everything done as soon as possible. Who knows? I might end up earning a free week.
