Thank you Make blog for providing me with something simple and quick to do for todays creative thing. As the clock ticks past 2am and I find myself still looking into a group of computer monitors at my office I think maybe I’m not going to be able to come up with something to post today. It’s another all-nighter for me tonight. (sigh) It’s my own fault again because I could’ve come in on Saturday or Sunday. I’m just looking forward to finishing this whole Toy Story project. It’s been a long and good run. It’s been very satisfying for me in a lot of ways but right now as I stare into these computer screens all I can think about is being somewhere else.
My first idea for a post tonight was to draw a picture of how I felt which is pretty hopeless at the moment. I ended up having some cigarettes today. While I don’t feel good about it I have to listen to the Lloyd Bridges in my head saying “I guess I picked the wrong week to quit smoking…” I don’t even know why I tried to quit yesterday knowing what I had in store for me at work today but I did. It’s proof that I can do it if I put my mind to it as well as have the freedom of time to throw my head into a pillow and shut out the rest of the world until I can finally come out into the sun again. I need that freedom so today was not the day for it but I do believe that if I can get this last edit delivered to the client then this might be the week for it. If you follow the blog, you will surely get the honest scoop. And I apologize to all of those who have been following and had to hear me say over and over again- I’m quitting, I’m postponing quitting, ok now I’m quitting, wait, no I’m not. So, for that, I am really sorry.
Anyways, todays creative thing came from this link on the Make blog. It’s a cool paper thingy that can transform into many shapes. Watch the video below to see how you can make one yourself!
All the best, Charlie
