File Z5287556 - Self Care [video]

So, um.

[ This time around, John's a bit more prepared to address a network. He's set himself up a little studio area in the corner of his room and his phone's mounted to record him hands-free. ]

Heard from a coupla people that I wasn't real consistent 'bout takin' care of myself— [ the last time he was here. ] —historically speakin'. And I got to thinkin' 'bout that some three or four days ago, when I realized there was a whole day where I just sat 'round my room feelin' like crap, eatin' like I did when I was a teenager, stinkin' like a fool 'cause I needed a dang shower, but I was not feelin' it.

And you know what? Those people were right. Realized that. Once in a while — maybe more'n I'd like to admit — I totally forget I gotta maintain me.

[ He shifts in his chair and digs a piece of paper from his pocket, unfolding it and holding it up for the camera. It's pretty short and sweet: "Drink water. Sleep. Shower. Help someone. Exercise. Eat. Socialize. Smile. Relax. Forgive." ]

Made myself a little list, been tryin' it for a coupla days, and if I do six or seven things off this list every day, then I'm callin' it a success.

[ John sets the list aside. If anyone wants a copy, he's provided an attachment. ]

Now I'm curious, wonderin' what sorta things you guys find yourself forgettin' now that you're here. Your lists look like mine? Or is it totally diff'rent? And what're we all missin' that oughta be on everyone's lists?

That's a nice list and all, but good luck trying to help someone every day. I've been trying that and, well. Some of these people are hopeless.

not sure that living in wonderland is really conducive to self-care.

[Self-care is ignoring the fact that your masked self got you cut up across the chest by a bloody scythe and then waking up without any memory of it in the woods.]

That's a pretty good list. ...Probably pretty similar to mine, actually, though with a few differences. [He grins.] Living on the tenth floor, exercise is pretty easy to come by.

[If he's socializing, which isn't actually a given.]

That's a weird accent.

[If asked, he'd admit it'd been a selling point in getting his attention. The words themselves sound Japanese, but the man and the inflection behind them have a uniquely American lilt that tickles Ryuji's ears.]

Wow. I didn't know adults needed reminders to take showers.

[This teenager is feeling mighty vindicated right now. See, it's not just him--other, older people have bad habits, too!]

I shouldn't, though. We still need to fight here, in Wonderland.

Good list. Solid. Spoken as someone who spent about 2 weeks in isolation but dragged myself out of it only to share a meal with a new friend.

[ She means you, buddy, you helped her hit the eat, socialize, smile, and relax points on the list. And he didn't even know it at the time. ]

Forgiveness seems like a long term goal. Not that it isn't necessary, though.

I think it's fairly brilliant of you to make plans like that. I suspect the events will make it difficult, except for the socializing and helping people. We tend to do that a lot during events.

[Newt truly hasn't thought of planning this way, but he can certainly see the reasoning behind it.]

Most of mine involves studying this place and working to continue with the training of my creatures in this place. Smart idea though given how easy it is to get caught up in Wonderland and forget about yourself.

That's a good list. I approve. [Cissie flashes a grin and a thumbs up. Official Cissie Stamp of Approval here.]

I try to get down to the range to get some practice in daily, but it doesn't always happen. Back home, it's just part of the routine, you know? It feels weird if I don't here.
