I've been packing up the studio, too, in advance of the move. I'm sorry to see all my stuff get boxed up, but I haven't been using it lately due to a bit of a funk earlier, and now needing to do renos etc.
The new place is smaller than this one, and right now their storage lockers are oversubscribed, so I'm not sure where I'll even store stuff, much less unpack it to use it.
But that's a question for, probably late August to be honest, but we'll see. I do want to paint!
One thing I'd forgotten about doing lots of DIY reno work is how absolutely chewed up your hands get, especially if you've not been doing that stuff for a couple years. No calluses = shredded hands. One of my finger tips split. My phone doesn't recognize my fingerprints either. At least I haven't forgotten how to do stuff, and I kept most of the tools.
What you do on day 101 is up to you. You'll likely have improved your cardio and core strength.
Keep doing a hundred, or switch over to the 7 minute work out, or do sprints, or interval training.
Kind of like a couch to 5k except you don't have to go outside.
The 100 day burpee challenge is where on day 1, you do a single "burpee" a.k.a. jumping squat thrust.
It's an exercise thing.
Then on day 2, you do 2 of them.
Three months later, you're doing 90 a day, then 91, 92. You stop at 100 on day 100, having done 5050 burpees.
It sucks, but is pretty gradual. You don't have to do them all at once; you can do ten and take a break, or do 20 in the morning, etc.
I did it last year, and I'm doing it again this year; I'm on day 6.

Hey Masto writers! I just saw that Duolingo is taking submissions for short pieces of fiction, $500 if they use it. If you write, check it out - if you know a writer, please boost or share with them! Let's get some cash opportunities to our talented Mastopeople!
Update for the general public: we bought a condo in the Village, downtown Toronto, fulfilling some long-term dreams (and tapping life-long savings). Still looking for the right job(s), but at least come August we'll be living in the right place.
So many of these stones are artifacts. Bricks, concrete, asphalt. Cherry Beach, Toronto.
Fly tying. But for cats.
Fixing my iOS camera app Argent. External technical debt is a very annoying facet of the fast moving phone ecosystem.
