Given how relatively late I went to bed last night (a good thirty minutes or so past midnight), it’s not surprising that I started my first rest day relatively late as well. I woke up around nine-thirty, but I didn’t really feel refreshed at all. I must be because of the heat, and while it was windy, it was obviously much hotter than usual. That meant that Summer was once again here, or at least it’s the case for us folk living here in the Philippines.
After some breakfast (which was really a brunch when I think about it now), I set about preparing the things I needed for what I was to do today… That is, do some model painting for the Librarium Challenge. Before I got down to business though, I added a few details to each marine (via my steadily-decreasing bits supply), mainly purity seals and holstered bolt pistols (which means I am now out of said holstered bolt pistols), before giving those additions a layer of Tamiya blue. Only after the paint dried did I actually start on the real work…
Or I should have. Even with the windows open, it’s awfully hard to actually do any painting in my room, so I usually also turn on the lights in my room. I used to have a fluorescent tube for room lighting, but I had to recently change to an energy-saving bulb. While it’s more than adequate to illuminate the room during evenings, using it during the daytime only makes my eyes tire more quickly than usual. So really, I was only able to paint after sunset. Annoying.
Since I couldn’t do any painting during the afternoon, I went to the gym for a bit, and did my usual one-hour routine. I can’t say that I feel any lighter though, and looking myself in the mirror still shows all the blubber concentrated around my lower abdomen… Ugh. I hope that I have some progress on that front come Saturday.
Speaking of progress… I really have to start on my rewrite. It’s the end of February, and I’ve literally only done ten pages out of a minimum of eighty pages. Not good. So that means that tomorrow will be allocated to that issue. Five should be a good target, yes?
I’m… going to try to write at least that much tomorrow. Yeah.
