Operation Achieve Anything: Day Three-Hundred-Fourteen, Dateline 11-10-2018

A well-composed book is a magic carpet on which we are wafted to a world we cannot enter in any other way.
— Caroline Gordon

Good morning crickets. Welcome to day number three-hundred-fourteen of Operation Achieve Anything. Here we go with some more fun and games following an impromptu day off from trapping myself behind this monitor for another full day. As always, it was relaxing and nice to be able to just sit on the couch for another rare round of day drinking. Yes, I do this every other week, but considering my past, that’s super rare to me. Now I just need to get over the guilt that I always feel for breaking my streak of productivity, which led me to feel like I needed this downtime in the first place.

Thankfully, I can credit my decision to do next to nothing as my effort to fulfill yesterday’s assignment where for three days in a row I’ve been told to try to practice having fun. For the first two assignments I fulfilled the task by highlight how I love what I do, so the fun being had was my actual work since I didn’t end up doing anything all that extracurricular. This probably added to my feeling of a need to take a real break, and not just go easy while working like I plan to do today. I think I need to find more opportunities like this to avoid something the manic outburst that come from all of the pressure that I put on myself to continually be productive. Even if that productivity time goes to what you might consider nonsense.

Since this is the third day in a row that I’ve addressed the topic of fun, so I’m going to make this one quick and start to wrap things up. In order to do so, I’m going to jump right into the assignment for today, where I’m supposed to share my feelings toward reading and then find some sort of content to read. Of course, you’ll have to wait for tomorrow to read my findings, so, until then, it’s not time for me to wrap this one up by saying, 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.
