Operation Achieve Anything: Day Thirty-Eight, Dateline 2-7-2018

Speak little, do much.
— Benjamin Franklin

Hey Crickets, welcome to day number thirty-eight of Operation Achieve Anything. I feel like today might be the last of my bedridden days to get over this cold that I’ve been fighting. With that said, I’m going to keep this update quick, which shouldn’t be all that hard considering the fact that there wasn’t all that much to yesterday’s assignment that I’m here to report on.

The last three assignments have been observations based, trying to get me to notice people’s actions as well as other aspects of my surroundings. Where the first two assignments actually had tasks, yesterday I was told to just keep on observing… that’s it… just keep going, without even a hint of a task to report on.

If this were any other day, I would go on to share some of the things that I did end up observing but being that I barely even got out of bed, I wasn’t stuck by any insights other than how long the day feels when you just can’t seem to find comfort. Well… that and I really should have had that Monster Energy Drink first thing in the morning because it gave me more anxiety than the energy boost to get through my daily obligation, which was the idea.

On a good note, I did start to eat again which and am starting to feel a lot better. As I said, this should be my last bedridden even if I don’t feel one hundred percent better. Thankful, today’s assignment is another simple one that really doesn’t require much effort, since the task at hand is to work to something that I’ve been threatening to start in order to finally get the ball rolling.

Luckily, the additional rules are that it should be something from around the house that can be completed in order to taste the senses of accomplishment and closure. I have the perfect task in mind that I will be sharing in tomorrow update. Until then, it’s now that time where I say, 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.
