Welcome to day number twenty-five of this year's NaNoWriMo challenge where I am now done with my epic two day Thanksgiving break and can't wait to get back to my regular scheduled programming. Don't get me wrong, I loved the time off and but my body and mind feel better after two days with zero pressure, but at the same time, I feel guilty about wasting so much time without getting to the leisure time activities that I wanted.

Where I fantasized about spending two entire days sitting on my couch while getting caught up on some of the movies I've been meaning to get to over the past decade, I ended up doing nothing but sitting at the same computer that I write at to watch YouTube videos all day while taking breaks to play simple video games from time to time.

I guess when all is said and done, a break is a break and the things that I opted to do are my new traditional end of the day activities, so I guess it does make sense that I would default to this sort of thing with my free time. Then again, I did fit in a couple of my "Thing To Watch" playlist, so it wasn't a complete waste of my weekend.

Either way, time off is time off that we all need to enjoy whenever we can. It's just that, I'm just still at that point where my productivity level is the only thing that justifies my existence so I struggle to really let down my hair like I used to back in my nine to five days where I was easily able to give into taking a break since I was already dead inside.

Wow, that got pretty dark pretty quickly. Oh well, that will happen with me from time to time. Though this post is ending on a negative tone, I'm actually in a really good mood because I'm excited to get back to doing what I love to do. As always, I'll keep you posted on what I get myself into when I check in again tomorrow. Until then, good day and good luck to you and all of your projects.

Talk to you soon.

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
