It’s like a switch has been flipped inside me. Someone reached over, dusted off the cobwebs, and turned on the power. I feel full of energy and determination. The Energizer Bunny can’t even compete. I have gone to the gym every day this week so far. I keep pushing myself, and I like it. I like the way I feel when I get off of the elliptical and feel my heart beating and the sweat on my face. I like the way I feel after I’m done doing the chest and shoulder press. It feels like I have broken free from the binds of judgement and laziness. I have come so far in such a short time.
I hated going to the gym. I hated that I would work out as hard as I could, be dripping sweat, and still be smirked at by the muscled athletes who believed that I had no business being there. I hated being spoken to as if I was completely ignorant about what the machines did. I knew exactly what they did. My dad was a coach, and he had introduced me to every one of them, but I didn’t like them. They taunted me. So I refused to be around them.
This time I crave the workout, I have replaced my emotional urges to eat with exercise. When I’m happy I eat. When I’m angry I eat. When I’m sad I eat. When I’m bored… you guessed it! I eat. Now replace eat with exercise. It’s amazing how much of a difference it makes. My body is tired, but not in a lethargic way. It’s in an accomplished way. It’s in a proud and determined way.
I feel strong and happy. I’m not going to stop pushing myself. I’m not going to back down from the judgmental glances. I’m going to surpass their expectations. I’m going to surpass my own. I’m going to Waist Away, and they will have to admit that they were wrong. I do belong there. I belong anywhere I want to belong.
One of the BEST ad campaigns about representation I have seen.
Everyone has a backbone. Use yours.
This is perfect.
I am playing a female Elf Rogue named Adalyn. She is the raining power of her bloodline and a devout follower of Sehanine. The bloodline has a very powerful affinity for magic ( she has not learned any). Turns out that Alexia Ciannor (The Witch Blade Trilogy) has roots. in her distant past, to the bloodline. Adalyn is the descendant of one of the Great Seven Warriors, and she bears an eerily identical resemblance.
SO… My question for you is: What would be a good 4e Epic Destiny to look into and what book is it in? I thought about the simple Demigod, but I’d prefer something with more flavor.
dead. literally, dead.
Get up, look SICKENING, and make them eat it.
He knows I do! <3
