It's been awhile...

Life tends to move along at its own pace. It cares not how fast or how slow you might like time to pass. Some days fly by, and sometime meetings or classes draw out forever.

I'm very busy (which I like) and it's making me work a little harder.

Flossing is becoming easier. I've started to brush and floss every night. It's good because I feel like I'm actually doing something right and so far am succeeding in it. I mean, it doesn't change the fact that when I went to the dentist the other day I found out I have eight cavities. But at least it scared me into taking care of myself.

In the mean time, I've got editing for Jake S. and to do, which is nice because it's something that I love to do and it brings in the cash. However, I'm also First Assistant Director for a BA Practicum film. Our second week of shooting is tommorow and we are going to be shooting at a very empty mall in Billerica Massachusetts. I haven't seen the location, but if it's anything like they described, I'm sure it'll be amazing.

ADing is hard, because you've got to be constantly pushing everyone to get they're work done. You are in charge of scheduling and pacing the shots so that you can really move through the day and stay ahead of the game. If you fall behind, it's your job to basically invent time--either eliminating or combining shots, making people go faster, or spinning the globe backwards--whatever it takes.

I got a call from the Elders here in Boston today. It's actually the second time they've called and I've missed them. But I don't call back. Partly because I'm too busy to have a serious meeting with them, but I think part of it is that I'm afraid that when they meet me they'll see through me, see that I should be in there shoes, on a mission like them. And they'll think less of me. And I don't need more feelings of inadaquecy in my life--I've already got enough.

As for other things, my classes are moving along at a good clip. I've got a presentation on Islamic Architecture due sometime in mid December, two more editing projects to complete for Editing Class, my final draft of my second project and my third writing project... argh, there is still so much to do.

Life is like trying to empty the ocean. No matter how much you scoop out, there will still be the same amount of water in the sea.

Wish me luck on the shoot tommorow... I'm going to need it!
