I’m racing time to write this blogpost before midnight strikes.
Today was the peak of my active self. I had to tutor a student in the morning, she was late so I took advantage of the time by writing up some lesson plans. I then had a quick lunch then preped for teaching math at the institute. This time I was ready for the challenges facing me; unlike last week. Once I was done I had to get ready to go to my friend’s house for a catchup.
I just decided to chill now, and the tiredness feels satisfying a bit.
I’m excited to relax tomorrow morning before my next group of students at 4.
Also, my watch’s battery died so I switched to this new watch that my friend gave me (knowing that I study math). I’m really loving the watch even though the size of the circle is bigger than what I’m used to.
12. What do you normally eat?
When I’m not stuffing myself with everything in my fridge, I usually eat nothing for a couple of days, then I take a break from that and either eat half a can of baked beans for protein, or an apple, and then go back to starving.
Thanks @bonnie-wee-swordsman for putting this tag together! No one tagged me specifically, but that was not going to hold me up! This looked too fun!

464 PUSH UPS in 26 minutes 18 seconds. And because I wanted to see how many I could grind out in 30 minutes I kept pushing for a total of 520!!
Thanks to everyone who liked, reblogged and commented on my self challenge this morning. You all definitely motivated me and made me accountable. I know for a fact I would not have done 520 push-ups tonight without the assist. Workout this morning sucked…workout this evening totally smashed!!!! And now I must collapse and 😴
Announcing the ‘You and I Have Begun to Knit’ Competition!
(Or, as I have begun secretly to call it, the ‘Ultimate Hannigram Knit-Off Grudge Match of Destiny.’ Don’t ask.)
Hello, all! Because @oftempestsandteacups and I have been having difficulties with writer’s block for a little while, we decided to try something else– and because we both happen to be knitters and utterly ridiculous people, this is what resulted.
The premise is this: Beginning on the 17th, we will both be knitting something
small enough to knit in a week’s time
that we think Will would give Hannibal, or vice versa
based on an existing picture or pattern, and altered in some way to reflect the aesthetic of the show
(or as close to that as we can get– who can tell with knitters? We’re insane.)
On the 24th we will each present our finished products to the Fannibal community at large, and our lovely impartial judges shall decide which one of us is superior in every way.
The loser shall be led in chains through the streets of Rome in a triumphal parade, immortalised in their humiliation… and will write a short fic for the winner incorporating the winning piece.
We haven’t quite got the parameters by which we will be judged hammered out, but one of our judges will be the wonderful @sofancydancy, whose impeccable taste and infallible wisdom is well-established.
