As I’m off on holiday to Ireland and Spain tomorrow morning for a couple of weeks I thought it darn right rude to not leave a parting message on the blog. Never mind its been ages since I wrote anything. If anything this shows that I’ve been up to my eyeballs recently getting things done. Needless to say all things are coming to a close in terms of to-dos and what not.
In the end the timing has been great. Last week I completed the design of the magazine I was working on as well as starting in Wedovideo, implementing staff reviews, project management systems and other long term initiatives. Once I get back from holiday I look forward to continuing on this thread, as well as getting knee-deep in motion graphics and video for real. Up to now its been mainly direction and storyboarding, which by themselves have been new and enjoyable experiences especially working with such experienced individuals.
Recently I have been wondering if its worthwhile for me to return to Temple University’s continuing education course, but after some debate and soul-searching last night I reconciled with my desires and simple time-frame that with all the extra work that I do as well as the language study that I eventually want to return to I decided against the enrolement. If anything I get to save a load of cash and time. But guess where that will be going into? Yup! Into work and Japanese. Time to sharpen up and get the system in check after a good summer recharge.
Anyway enough rambling from me on what I want to do etc. I’d love to hear from other people on their ideas of getting refreshed and what it is that they do to recharge after a prolonged period of exertion, physically or mentally.
So heres to the break and hopefully when I get back I’ll have some photos and what not from Ireland, Spain as well as updates on the magazine and other projects. Stay tuned for me in the very near future. Enjoy the rest of the summer!
