The end of the semester was officially December 22nd. Coincidentally, this is also right smack in the middle of the insanity we refer to as “The Holiday Season” which means that not only are you killing yourself trying to complete end of semester assignments, but you’re also working your ass off at work dealing with every kind of shopper you can imagine.
Well, that is all done now. Christmas is over, the after Christmas shopping hoards have settled down some, and I have no homework that needs to be done for a month.
Yes, I have been working on my own projects and stuff, but I just got five days off from work and I really don’t have anything that needs to be done. Considering that (according to my Steam software) I have played Left 4 Dead about 20 hours in the last two weeks I don’t think I should be hooking up to the computer any more than I already have been.
I have been working on the wife’s new website design, I was trying to do it using Action-script 3.0 but there is so much new to it that I backed down to version 2.0 just to save my sanity. All I have left to do is figure out how to make some preloaders and it will be ready to go. I’m even working on my own website for my stuff, it’s looking nice and I need to finish a few models so that I can post them up there, but overall I’m pretty sure I can have the design done by the time school starts up at the end of January.
So how can I be bored with all this stuff to do? It’s the end of semester crash, you run on 100% for so long that once you actually have a moment to stop you just fall over and groan. No moving, no thinking, just laying there like my cat Quazo – a big lump that happens to be breathing. I’ve got a car, a plane and a bike to work on not to mention a couple of environments and a few characters but I just don’t have the enthusiasm or the energy.
So, I’m thinking I may just vegetate for a week or so before jumping up and getting to work again. Maybe just read a book or something – a book that isn’t related to animation, that is. Maybe sleep in some, or stay up and watch old movies. The sky is the limit!
But for right now I’m bored so I think I’ll just go work on that website a bit more since I just found a good link on making a preloader
Happy New Year everyone!
