Thought for the Day: A foolish man knows everything, yet fears nothing.

Suspect was last seen escaping from Kamchatka Institute for Mental Rehabilitation where he was undergoing treatment for Post Traumatic Dress Disorder and acute Dramatic Brain Injury. As a known fashion victim, suspect is to be considered armed and extremely fabulous. Do not attempt to approach. Report all sightings to the relevant Fashion Police precinct and initiate Class V containment procedures.

Duck Practice/Playing-around time by GlassRabbit
Duck Practice/Playing-around time
I seem to be on a drawing kick recently.  I can't say I've been practicing extensively but I definitely like these duckfaces a lot better than my first attempt at drawing Duck Pony, Lord of the Seas (tm).  I also tried the more cartoony duck style you see on MLP.  Not sure which one I like better.

Duck Pony, Lord of the Seas!! v2 by GlassRabbit
Duck Pony, Lord of the Seas!! v2
Why have I done this?  How horrifying.

But since I have created this monster, I might as well do it well or the job's not worth doing, so they say.  I tried to use an actual duck for a reference this time but the beak ended up looking more like a Toucan, hence the caption.  I also took my time, sobered up, and tried not to make too much of a mess of stuff.  Drawn, once again, with sharpie like a true medic.

15 minute challenge: Duck Pony, Lord of the Seas!! by GlassRabbit
15 minute challenge: Duck Pony, Lord of the Seas!!
Oh god, look what I've gone and done...

Okay so I somehow got roped into doing art.  For the second time.  I really need to reevaluate the kind of people I hang out with.  But yeah, we had an impromptu 15-minute pony challenge despite the fact that I don't know the first thing about drawing.  I mean, I've done it a few times but it's not like I ever took it up seriously.  So, my usual tactic in these has been, where other people put time, care, and effort into their work, to not give a sh*yay*.  Apparently this allows me to produce hilarious drawings because the last one I did was drawn exclusively with geometric shapes and called "Ponies on Drugs", and people laughed at that too.  What the f*yay* is wrong with you people?

So, long story short, I sketched a seapony because one of the guys absolutely hates them, but when I went to draw the snout it came out like a duck bill so I decided to improvise.  I think I will continue to work on refining this one periodically; it makes me laugh.

Teabee's APFT Workout - "Rebirth"

Requirements:

1-2 20lb dumbbells
Perfect Fitness Multi-Gym Pro or something similar.

Alternate between strength days and cardio days.  Sunday is a rest day.

Every day:

As many pullups as you can in the morning before work.

On strength days:

(30 second break in between)
  • 50 Hand Release Pushups
  • 50 Situps (Use the MGP if you don't have something to hold your feet)
  • 20 Bicep Curls
  • 50 Crunches
  • 20 Shoulder Presses
  • 20 Leg Raises
  • 20 Dips using the MGP (I do regular dips, the only difference is that your legs are straight out and you use your heels for balance.  Do not throw your ass down to do a dip, it's all in your arms and back)
  • 10 Pushups using the MGP (It forces you to go deeper and further down) [Yeah, it's only 10; by this point I'm pretty smoked but it's just for fun.] OR 10 Bruce Lee Situps
  • Stretch
On cardio days:
  • Without breaks (unless getting water), do 20 minutes each on the Treadmill, Bike, Elliptical, and Stair Master
  • Stretch
So I came up with this after a long chat with my good friends tavorbuckweiser, and Scarlet Nightmare about fitness and losing weight.  Although I was one of the people giving advice, it was also kind of a transformative talk for me, so I decided to put my money where my mouth is and prove that what I said was not just liquid inspiration.  I call it Rebirth because it kind of is.  For those who don't know me, I was in the process of training up to go to Special Forces Assessment and Selection.  Unfortunately, I didn't work hard enough to meet the minimum standards for the course and after months of not showing the desired improvement, I was kicked out of the SF preparation program and told to come back when I was strong enough.

That's just how it is in the Army.  You either pony up or fall by the wayside.

I don't know what happened to me after that.  Something inside of me just broke, I guess, because I found that I didn't care about anything, least of all fitness.  I became a quitter.  In a way, it was even worse than quitting at Selection because I quit before I even had the chance to really try.  So many people encouraged me, both within the community and outside of it, and I let them down.  I was deeply humiliated.  A quitter like me doesn't deserve to stand in the same company as all those great people.  So now, I think I can finally say that I'm starting to pick myself back up again and not feel sorry for myself but as Worst Pony says in the show, baby steps.

I think I can finally accept that Special Forces may not have been the life for me at this time.  Maybe it never was.  But I'll find my special talent eventually.  Nobody stays a blank flank forever.
Princess Celestia has to deal with the burden of ruling a nation - diplomacy, budgeting, hearing the concerns of her citizens, and so on, and she still finds time to mentor and encourage young ponies (and one dragon).  Luna has to slay monsters.  Best princess?  Never.
