    I didn't have Internet last night, so I couldn't post. Still, I didn't do much yesterday. I had a very bad headache, so I had to cancel quite a lot of things. By the time I started to feel better, the sun went down already.

    Still, I managed to write. It took a lot of willpower, but I did it.

      The Qi Gong practice today was cancelled due to a heavy rain. Other than that, it was a very uninteresting and unproductive day. I woke up feeling very tired, went to work without breakfast, almost passed out near the door of the house...

      Then, as soon as I finished writing up my plans, powercut. I slept through it.

      Nasty DOMS on my calves too. 140 Calf Raises in one workout is not easy, even taking my time. It really is a challenging program.

      I cancelled my plans anyway. That doesn't mean I didn't try to write. I managed to recover one of the major works I lost after the old hard drive got rekt. I'll read it and see if I can get out of this... this insecurity that's blocking me.

        Busy day. Also, very tiring. In fact, I've been feeling tired this entire week. I'm not eating very well, there's a lot of drama and fighting...

        Not a very good week. I thought I was going to be out for like an hour yesterday, but it ended up being the entire morning. I was going to write, but I ended up making a couple of D6. I need to do paper dice for next week, plus an entire one-shot that can be played in an hour or two tops. It's an assignment for the French class to make a game, and why not making a DnD one-shot?

        I planned for Burpees, but I ended up not doing them. I tried, but I already felt so tired... Again, not eating well this week. Way too many carbs, not too much vegetables, fruits or protein. Like I said, a lot of drama and fighting happening in the household.

        At least I did 14 (the DD)

          We had to move our DnD session. I didn't write anything at all. I got so much doubt last night that I couldn't do anything.

          I feel like this is turning into Kafka's journal now.

          I had to move the days because DnD took us the entire day. There was also a powercut...

            A major power outage has killed every plan I had for yesterday. There was a huge storm that lasted for the entire day. My room flooded, I couldn't save anything into my phone, and, as I stated before, the power went out. The storm damaged an electrical tower outside the city, which left around 18 places from three different towns without power until... I guess an hour ago, tops.

            This was not fun. I had the same breakdown I had back in 2019. Constant flashbacks, so much walking in the dark, almost screaming, boredom... Not even playing the guitar helped, although I did 100 Burpees, so that helped me out with the cold. Yeah, it was a very cold day yesterday too.

            I slept early, and at the same time, I slept poorly. Too many nightmares in a row. Too cold too.

            Nevertheless, I managed to do a D20 and also did 2D8, with the paintjob done and everything.

            I think June 12th has to be the lowest point of the year now. It's only a miracle that I did Easy Abs and the Burpees. Easy Abs I had it memorized. I wish I could say the same about 30DoG, though I didn't have a timer. My phone died during the powercut.

              I hope June 12th was the lowest point. That means things simply have to start looking up. I hope they do.

                I hope so too TopNotch

                Anyway, I wrote last night. Forcefully, but I wrote. More importantly, I woke up with many ideas to work with. I guess I finally unblocked myself from whatever that happened to me.

                We'll see...

                  I wrote last night. Only a little, but I wrote. I'm slowly breaking out of my shell.

                  The main issue I have with writing this late is that I'm in a weird position that does not allow me to concentrate. If I'll do it on my phone, no issue, but on a notebook or on the laptop... it's difficult.

                  But anyway, I'm snapping out of it now! I'm not going to do anything with my hands today. Only write. Tomorrow is DnD day too, so I'll have to prepare the session.

                    Well, I wrote quite a bit today... until I managed to get stuck, at least.

                    I'm not sure what is it that I get stuck easy, but that's something I'll figure out later.

                    I tired my legs today, though. The night routine was shortened out because of it.

                      Yep, DOMS. I did a lot yesterday, and I'm paying for it today. I don't regret it.

                      Of course, I had to cancel workouts today. There's been an unexpected situation, and I had to finish up the dice sooner than I anticipated. Of course, all I needed was to paint the 2D12 and made the 2D100, which I don't know how I did it in short notice, but I did. Nevertheless, I got completely off at midnight, because the water came, plus I went out on the evening. It was DnD day too. We had to move our session for today because nobody could make it on Sunday. Maybe next week we will. I'll write that up tonight, though. I have fresh ideas that I don't want to forget by the time I prepare everything.

                      Busy day with no workouts, which is fine. Even though the plan was Upper Body, I wanted to do the next day instead. Still, DOMS... I think it's fine to take a break day.

                      I did 40 Sit-ups on the DD instead of 30. I read it first, then forgot how many reps, and thought it was 40. I got confused by the fact that we had 40 Sit-up Punches as DD two days ago.

                        Hurray to the incorporation of card tricks in DnD

                          PetiteSheWolf Fun fact, my Bard has a +4 on her Sleight of Hand skill, and she got called out by another character when I cheated the deal because that character actually saw her cheating once during downtime (very high Perception roll), but couldn't prove it (a nat 20 Sleight of Hand check before she was told to open her hand and reveal the card).

                            Alright, it seems that everything is going good with the graduation. I finally have my last record, and I'm very lucky. Usually, these ones are filled with mistakes by the end of the career, from having classes flunked to missing classes that are a requirement to take others. Mine is clean, with no mistakes, which is quite an oddity.

                            In my case, all I need to do is wait. According to the higher ups, people from Caracas have to come here to check out that everything is in order; to make sure who graduates and who does not. Once they come it's when we'll get dates.

                            I guess all I need to do is relax. Now that I'm free, I'm going to come back into coding, but I'm not carrying on with HTML or CSS. I don't find it very gratificating, to be honest. I would love to develop games, and HTML is obviously not suited for it. Still, I have my notes, and I learned quite a bit. I'll check up Python, Java, and the C family, and do the baby steps on each, just to get my feet wet. Once I find something that I like, I'll focus on it.

                            I'm also coming back to math. From Kindergarten to the 4 semesters of Calculus in all the engineering careers, though I only have the book for Calculus 1. It's fine, though. I'm doing this to keep my brain working, give another shot into something I used to be good at, and probably earn some money by helping high schoolers getting out of high school, or helping engineering students with it.

                            What I need for those now is to find a way to squeeze them into my time.

                              Writing has become a struggle lately. I'm wasting a lot of time being distracted, and when it comes to putting down words, the inner critic is very loud and does not allow me to keep going. I've become perfectionist once again.

                              I guess this is why I'm doing these logs one day after the fact...

                                Wi-fi screwed me last night, so I couldn't write. It was way easier to get distracted because the night was too quiet. Complete silence is something that does not help me at all.
