Last night, I kept wondering why so many unlucky things happen to me lately, especially when I don't have time to deal with them. Besides my massive workload, I have to find summer jobs and internships. I have to find a new apartment. I don't think I'll have time to go home for Easter. My animation is taking forever to edit. And a semester's worth of work on my website is gone. But then I realized that sulking isn't going to get me anywhere. And I'm really rather fortunate in so many ways. So I restarted my website and worked into the wee hours of the morning. I slept a little, woke up, and started Holy Week with a few extra desperate prayers at mass. So now I'll continue working non-stop, as I always do. It's all I can do.
I also worked on animations for my documentary on Peter Pan complexes for about 7 hours today. I find it so relaxing to move things one frame at a time. It distracts me for a little while.
I stumbled upon the work of Charmaine Olivia today. I love her dreamy imagery. I love her use of boats and birds and delicate daisies.
Back to work? Of course. I'll start tomorrow off with cup of coffee and working a shift in the library. In the afternoon, I'm giving a stop motion demo in Sarah Paul's class. Then work, work, work for me.
