Uggghh.

 

 

trying to motivate myself to exercise.

 

Is it nice out? If so, start off by just going for a walk around the block or something.

Not a bad idea. I've been laying in bed, refusing to do anything but DM. I haven't smoked though so that's a plus.

Mountains. Even better for walking. If I were to live in the mountains you'd probably barely find me inside.

Until winter. Brrr...

Negative. That's play time. Summer is for working and money making, winter is for snowboarding and snowmobiling.

In the mountains, it is the winter time when you make the money. You have to get your playtime in during whatever free time you have, but the crowds are in the winter. For people who don't live in the mountains, it can be the other way around, especially if you work construction or the like, but most of the people who live in the mountains work their asses off in the winter, at least in Colorado. Of course, you could live in a town that isn't a ski resort, if you're lucky enough to find a job.

 

Anyway, I never learned to ski, and I stopped liking the cold about five or six years ago, in my mid-forties.

Yeah, I'm in construction lol. That's why winter is play time.

 

I've had friends in the lodge industry, but we don't have a big lodge nearby, so it's only open on weekends. Which isn't enough to pay the bills.

 

So I bust my rump in the hot season and I enjoy the cold season.

 

Besides, the heat makes me lethargic and sad.

Yes, it used to do the same to me. When I worked construction (I built timber retaining walls for a decade or so), I worked all winter long, but when I worked road construction (I was a flagger for traffic control, then a TCS--a traffic control supervisor, the one who sets up and takes down the closure, drives the truck, assigns the flaggers their duties, deals with the contractor on site, etc), I took a layoff each winter. Somewhere in my forties though, a switch was flipped, and I started becoming more tolerant of the heat and less tolerant of the cold. I am beginning to understand why old people retire to Florida, although having gone to boot camp in that muggy nastiness, I would never live there, myself. I couldn't handle the desert either, because I don't want to interact in any way with scorpions and tarantulas, but perhaps the Carolinas some day...

    • There is no doubt, Moraine sees the whole world as her people, not for them to serve her, but for her to serve them, a true Aes Sedai.  That said, I see no need to paper over her secrecy, need to know attitude, threats to the boys and girls. She developed into a wise person before jumping into the Elfin world with both feet. Her development is interesting, but the story isn’t about her. I would say Nynaeve is the glue over the whole arc of the story.
    • Lily, sending positive thoughts!!    DJ and Lady!!! You are back!!   Hi, Cross!
    • Hi!!!!   I’m glad everyone is back!!!
    • I thoroughly agree with Artemia1. Moraine is the female character I most admire in all of English language fiction. She is mature, wise, just, graceful, beautiful, petite, well dressed and everything most fictional characters want to be, and never using her beauty for leverage and never self ambitious. There are too many sexualised female characters in some media forms particularly film. I believe her treatment of Lan is chaste and respectful and regard for his life continuing after hers and having a future with Nynaeve shows maturity and caring. Moraine runs away from a throne to devote her life to seeking and guiding the Dragon Reborn, which looking back at the last 6-7 thousand years of human history shows a rare quality.
