Decaf coffee: When I drink decaf coffee I notice it is even worse for me then not drinking coffee. I will almost certainly pass out from tiredness on the couch at some point in the day of a decaf day.
Which if I had nothing I would not do. I do not know why. I know it doesn’t make any sense. But there is also something very disappointing about a decaf coffee, when I drink. The taste is fine, but it is missing something.. something important.
To sum up: decaf: a disappointing drink.
Rice cakes: Also, a disappointing snack.. Actually they are delicious to me. I love the light crunchiness. That is why i got them. They have the light touch of honey but it is light enough that I don’t feel like I am eating something unhealthy and still has all the emotional appeal- Oh hey I am eating a healthy rice cake, or a bran bar! I will now fit in with those people who ride bikes places!
But then I feel like it goes nowhere near my stomach. The rice puffs must somehow fly up in the atmosphere, because they are not filling! I got a pack at CostCo, so I am aware that I spent 10 bucks on them, and there isn’t all that many. I don’t even know how many I would have to eat before I was aware I ate something after…And so, as much as I love rice cakes, I am realizing this is not a realistic snack for me.
Dark Tower is coming to the movies! Good or terrifying?? I love the series, read through 5 books of it so far… (for me that is a lot of love to a book series). But O. Did the trailer show 1..2..3.. books in one movie?!
Welp, that’s not the best sign, but I guess I will still give it a chance.
My Projects Update/Writing/Short Movie: Been trying to write a script for a 3d short.. I have several stories(about 4 in my head now). Many will all want to be larger then a 4 – 10 minute short. But I have to start small.
Anyway I have really been trying to spend time writing and developing the ideas, and it’s really hard. I don’t want to just throw something together, I want it to be good/ to be ‘right.’
I think one problem is trying to make a short movie, and at least starting out by myself, there is so much involved in that. 3d modeling/story boarding/writing/editing/rigging/animating/compositing/concept art/environment design/research/awareness of anatomy and perspectives (not in that order) along with other work i have to do.
But I have been feeling for months the digging feeling of, it’s time to get started.. And so i have.
I have been writing/story boarding and doing a lot of other things to prepare. But it has been really hard to get back into writing. I really have not been writing cause I have been too busy with the art side. I am just hoping it will come together in the end.
The hardest part I think is starting with getting the inspiration and starting out the pantser, and then deciding to be a plotter and start really taking the idea and figuring it out better. I can feel right when that happens in a story because you’ll suddenly not know what is going on with the characters and writing what is happening suddenly drops to be a lot harder.
