5 Things I've Learned This Week

This weekend has found me working on a video reel that best represents my work to prospective employers. I'm also developing my resume this week, in hopes that I can appear to have credibility on paper. I've never done anything like this before, I hope it works. I've also completed next week's commentary for Victorian Cut-out Theatre: The Wild Hunt. I hope those of you who are watching the commentaries are getting something out of them. I enjoy doing them, as they remind me why I continue to do the show.

And now on to 5 things I have learned this week:

1) Jane Eyre, PBS and Downton Abbey are only selling points when plugging Jane Eyre, PBS and Downton Abbey, otherwise people don't know what the the F*** you're talking about.

2) It's been a year since I quit smoking. (And a day hasn't gone by when I haven't thought about lighting up).

3) I may have to turn down jobs I previously said yes to. This is due to time constraints, my wife and I are not independently wealthy nor are our families. What does this mean, you ask? This means that we still have to work our full time jobs while planning, packing and sticking to all of our commitments. I also have to continue to animate within my free time. I'm still hoping that I can make this project happen.

4) If people had offered me the amount of work a year ago, that they're offering me now, I might have decided to stay in Colorado longer. (Seriously?!!!)

5) The Untouchables is still as good as it ever was. If you haven't seen it, shame on you!

Hope everyone has a good Monday.

Take care,
