Day 644 of 365 More.

I’m clearly getting burnt out again.

I had big plans for today. I went to the movies and while I was there, I took this picture in front of the Hulk statue. My intent was to come home and make a movie poster with it and then use that poster to do a tutorial for the podcast, which I had told Stephen I was gonna do this week.

I worked on it for maye 30 min. If you look you’ll see that I have done a slight bit of retouching. The rope that is in front of the Hulk has been digitally removed by his legs.

And then I ran out of steam. Like I’m seriously completely spent. It’s only 12:30. I’m me. I should be up for like 4 more hours.

I can’t, I’m just dead.

So this is as far as it gets. Sorry.

365 days

    *hug* listen to your body. You just need sleep way more than we need a tutorial tonight.

    Even the Hulk has to rest sometimes!
    Give in to what your body is telling you and get some rest!!

    Getting burnt out can be really hard. I think most of us going through your project get that. Take comfort in the fact that not everything is going to be wonderful every day. And it is still a wonderful discipline.

    Good luck resting up. And if I had any advice (I have gone through a period where I was 60+ days behind on editing and posting) it would be to take a few shots for the next week or so that don’t need much or any editing. And taking them as early in the day as possible. I know you have been doing this for much longer, but these ideas have been really helpful to me at times.

    You are incredible, but you are not the hulk. When your body says rest, then do so. You obviously cannot shut down your brain and you have much more going on that any 10 people I know. Don’t let fatigue stifle your brain.

    @Jack Scoresby: cool. Glad you liked it. Even though, it’s clearly crappy. BTW, did you see the movie poster I did that kinda features you?
