Recap and Ramblings

Hi

Well....things have been crazy the last few weeks. My long time "friend" has decided to have some space, so all projects have now been put on hold if not totally discarded and all plans have been pretty much binned. It's hard to think how a 7 year friendship and other stuff can be casually ended via gmail chat while I was at work. I was shattered. There were times that night that I couldn't even breathe, my chest was so tight, I wanted to scream, cry, hurt something and I couldn't do any of that....well, maybe my voice did go several octaves higher. :) I was very fortunate that I work with a lot of people I consider friends and had very understanding administrators. I got the support that helped me through that night.

I am glad to say I haven't cried about that incident since. It's been close to a month now. This is the longest I have gone without speaking to this person....in the last 7 years.

Am annoyed that another friend of mine predicted this situation almost a year ago. Am annoyed he gets to say "I told you so". I am also grateful to him and several other friends for being there for me.

I am starting to get really agitated not being able to workout and do as much activities as I would like to do. I want to get back into Muay Thai, I want to be able to dance more regularly, I miss training in a gym and it would be good to get back into climbing...small steps first..bouldering would be good to do again.

Work has been stressful but good. The team and the people working there are awesome and it is a pleasure to come to work. I still have a lot of things to improve on and things aren't peachy all the time but am working on it. Some things have finally clicked and others are frustrating me cos it's taking longer. I just want the time to really sit down and study and play around with Toon Boom. Who knows. I really want to get better at animating and with Toon Boom. I want to learn how to rig and be more competent with FX.

Am looking forward to Canada, a vacation right now would be so lovely and experiencing new stuff!
