Hello friends. u___u
I hope everyone is fab and doing well. I just finished my last day of work on Friday and I am feeling GREAT. I worked on a great project with some great people and my overall experience was amazing. I can't wait to show you guys! I have learned so much and am so grateful to be able to go back to school and utilize these skills on my final film as a student. I'm not much of an animator, but I've really learned to become comfortable with animation and I'm so excited for my last year at CalArts and am looking forward to cracking down on my film. I have good feelings for this year!
My last journal was a pretty sad one and truth be told it was a hard month for me at the end of June till the beginning of August. Sleeping for 3-5 hours a day really whacked my brain out. FOR REALS YOU GUYS. I'm not kidding. I really learned my lesson and will never do that again. Everything got fucked when I didn't sleep. My skin broke out, I was depressed, anxious, I felt sick all the time... And its a vicious cycle too. Lack of sleep led me to anxiety which led me to insomnia, which led me to more anxiety. You know what I mean. I felt like I couldn't think straight half the time and it really effected my workflow to the point that I had to pass off some of my work to my coworkers, WHICH IS THE WORST FEELING. Please take care of yourself you guys.
Anyways. I definitely went back to my 7-8 hours of sleep routine and am so much better for it. I've also been rock climbing 2-3 times a week and its been amazing. Its so fun and helps me sleep like a stupid little baby. I've also been indulging in the great outdoors! Wish I had started earlier, but really... Better late then never. Its been a great end of the summer and I hope to start posting more art now that I'm done with work!!!
