Day 91

I got out of bed on time and wanted to get straight to my French. That didn’t happen. We had forgotten to write a shopping list and had to get that done before hubby left for work. We finally got through it and I finally got to French.

UGH! I’ve just started learning new ‘travel’ words. I cannot remember a thing. It is so incredibly frustrating. I know that I’ve struggled at the beginning of each new topic but this one feel so much harder. Did I mention, ugh?!? By the time I was done, I was almost in tears. I was so frustrated. What better way to fix that, then with a workout.

I angrily worked out, pushing myself hard and fast and harder and faster. I ended up finishing my workout 7 minutes faster than normal. It made me think I’d forgotten something but I was just fuelled by French rage. If I can keep that level of rage, I could easily add another 15 minutes to the workout. HA!

I felt more human once the workout was done and got straight into drawing. It’s so much easier to do when I have something I need to draw. Thank you, drawing challenge.

Today’s task was to draw a dollhouse. The idea seemed hard but I found a great little dollhouse photo to reference. It took about an hour to draw and 30 minutes to colour. It seems a bit time consuming for a dollhouse.

After lunch I thought about writing. Then I thought about it some more. Then I spent a little more time thinking about it. I then convinced myself that I was watching a French movie on TV because I’m learning French and it would be helpful. It was just an excuse to not write. For two hours of trying, I got about 20 minutes of writing done.

The biggest problem I see with writing my story at the moment is I’m still not entirely sure where it’s going. Heck, I’m not even sure what genre I’m writing about. I mean, at this point, it could be a romance, a horror, a thriller or something that should just be turned into a tele-movie. Tomorrow I’ll do a read through and edit. See if I can gain some clarity for my own project.

After two failed attempts at knitting a pair of gloves for myself, I started work on a different project. I’m pretty sure it’s the cheap yarn that is making this almost impossible BUT I will endure and see if I can make something cool anyways. I know I have one mistake already but if I can continue with no new mistakes, it should be okay, I hope.

Tomorrow I’ll do more of the same.

I'm on a life changing journey to 40. There will be ups, there will be downs. I'm like a roller coaster but with more agoraphobia.
