        I finally got my ass out of bed yesterday, and I'm starting to feel better now. This is the weirdest cold I've ever had. I don't think I can train this week, but I can start over and pick back up the DDs from where I left them off. I'm afraid of going outside, so that'll be a no-no for now.

        I'm not at my 100% yet, but the crippling symptoms are gone. All I have left is just the typical congestion from a cold.

        Thank you for all the wishes

              And this was yesterday. I'm thinking about starting Vitality to recover before going back to normal. Maybe I'll recover before finishing, and it'll end up as a warmup...

                Alright, looks like my PTSD got triggered again. Tonight, there was a very bad electric storm that busted the power. I was in the middle of work, and I thought it was going to be like the last time, when an electrical tower got all twisted and damaged. This week hasn't been good at all, and the weekend doesn't seem to be going on the same way.

                But at least I'm picking myself back up! I'm doing Vitality on LVL I, and I also did the WoD on LVL I. Not because I can't do it on higher difficulty, but because I'm doing my best to accelerate the recovery of my back. I even tested myself out a bit and did a Full Burpee. I want to get back to dancing, but until I stop coughing violently when I do High Knees, I'm not doing Cardio.

                The morning routine is back. The night routine, though, I skip it sometimes.

                  I am sorry to read that you have been through a rough time

                  Keeping a routine a day is already a big thing! We'll manage the night routine later on

                  Comment


                    Froud Sadly, I had to kill it yesterday. I woke up very late due to a powercut, and I was late for DnD.

                    Due to sickness, I was completely unprepared, so I pulled the entire session out my ass. I'm don't take much pride into doing asspulls as a writer, but this one surprised every single one of us. It only took a natural one to obliterate an entire arc I planned out for our Fighter, and to accelerate the story by around four to five sessions further. Canonically, it's been a year since the campaign's story begun, so one year before we were four adventurers whom met up at a tavern, drinking, eating and singing, and then went out bounty hunting for bandits... and now, we destroyed an entire city to wipe out a revolution that formed due to foreign influence.

                    I've never laughed so much from a natural one roll, especially since it happened because I asked the Fighter to make a WIL save due to him taking anger management lessons... The fact that he rolled a 1 sent me literally to the floor. So, he wanted to bring war, and get people. I asked him a percentile, and then he got 100. And that's when our Druid joined me on the floor, laughing, because the Fighter literally got every single character that we've known into his quest of destroying that revolution.

                    The player himself told me that he played many nasty types in videogames, but no one is on the same level as his current DnD character.

                    Now, I have to figure out how we can reach to 20th. We're already at 11th level, so there's only two major arcs before wrapping up the campaign.

                    Due to all the things happening on DnD, I noticed how one Sidekick is always present, even when none of us is controlling her in that precise moment. She's a great character, and I pulled her to turn her into a Fighter player character. I may have a series of stories ready to do with her. I'll try to write and play at the same time on my own. I think I should read the How to Write Pulp Fiction book again.

                      Well, I thought I'd write, but I didn't. Powercut that lasted way too long in the middle of the day, some guitar playing, and some reading. That's it. I thought I'd write, but the Internet was very iffy last night.

                      But there were Burpees, or at least, from the Monday workout.

                      Oh, I also started the Arms & Abs challenge (finally). I'm slowly going back to normal. I guess I can take some time of some days to dance.

                        I feel better, enough to go out again as normal. I can return to the Daily Walk challenge now. I was also able to do 30 Burpees in one go, so maybe I can get back to the 100 Daily.

                        I guess I'm back at 100% now. Feels good to be back

                          Very cold, and overall, lazy day. It felt more like a Sunday instead of a Wednesday. Simply put, I almost didn't do anything today. But I did manage to get some writing done, albeit I forced myself to it, which is odd, considering that a good chunk from it was a breeze. Perfectionism sucks.

                          The university finally uploaded the pictures from the inside of the auditory during the graduation ceremony. I'll have to fish for mine tomorrow.

                            I'm on a roll. I've been writing the entire day yesterday too. I should really work like this instead. I always say that writing is easier when you do it non-linear, meaning doing it like it's a movie production: all scenes that take place in the forest should be filmed the moment we're in the forest, all the scenes that take place in the city should be filmed the moment we're in the city, and such... I'm following Terry Pratchett's techniques right now, and I think this one that I've been pulling off for quite a while is better if I already have the ending done. All I need to do is work through it.

                            But yeah, even though it takes me time, I'm writing by the thousand daily, and Ginny Di uploaded a DnD video that's going to help me A LOT for writing. In fact, I might going to use it. I don't know if the Solo Adventurer's Toolbox can be used with Vampire: The Masquerade, but perhaps it can be. I don't have the sack of D10s that I need to play that game, but hopefully the Dice app doesn't crash when I need to use a lot. Obviously, I'm joking. The app has never crashed on me, and I've put thousands of dice to see if I can break it. I couldn't.

                              Not really in the mood to write today. In fact, I was quite lazy today.

                              But hey, I did Burpees! I tired myself doing them, though. The last time I did 100 was the night before I got sick, so it's been 10 days. I'm going to need to do them for a while to recover my stamina.

                              The thing that I did the most for writing was putting down one of my characters on a VtM Character Sheet. Her story doesn't follow the lore of VtM, but I figured to use the Storytelling system to write it. I'll do the same tomorrow with the DnD system and attempt a simple one-shot to see how much I can write like this. Coming up with stuff is the easy part. Writing them down is harder, and I think trying to have fun with it will make the process easier, as I can just write what happened without focusing so much in style. It sounds like I'll get an outline, but it's way too detailed for being an outline.

                                Interesting idea using VtM and D&D for writing… if roleplaying your character is something that helps you figure out story bits, might I suggest checking itch.io as there are a number of journalling/solo rps both free and not that may have themes better suited to your character and will give you random situations to write about.

                                Also, congrats on getting back to the burpees!!
