Friday night I had an industry party to go to. Unfortunately, after biking the 20km home from work, I sat on the couch, and then I lay on the couch, and then I didn’t move from the couch until bedtime.*
Considering how much effort these networking events are and the state I was in, I’m glad I listened to my body and didn’t push myself any further. The problem is, if I’m working full-time so I can pursue my dreams, yet work drains me so much that I can’t pursue my dreams, well then we have a problem.
But, I did make it out to many other events during the week, including the Women in Film mixer. So that’s a plus-plus 🙂
Also, on Friday I did what every artist needs to do. I inspired myself.
There are times when the ability to create is just not in there and filling the tank is necessary. It is at these times when I turn to the help of music, writing, people, nature, films, anything that enlightens me or takes me away from myself or offers new insight; you get the idea. On Friday we watched a movie, and it was a good one.
The Pursuit of Happyness is so aptly named. It is what we all go through, and even when we achieve it, happiness, like all emotions, is fleeting. I highly recommend this film for it’s great writing, cinematography and acting. The last few moments were so well done- I’m going to stop myself there because I don’t want to oversell it or ruin anything so needless to say I will watch this movie again, and again, and again (but don’t expect too much, it’s just a movie after-all).
