Crappy Deadlines

I like eating crappy food.  I figure I can get away with it as long as I exercise and throw in the odd vegetable looking thing.  To that end, I ran around the university campus last night and I’ve been hitting the gym a couple times per week for the last little while.  I’ll look good, I’ll feel good, and I’ll get to eat crap.

You know what else feels good?  This.

Hi Jarrett.

Thank you again for the outstanding job on the video.  I really can’t thank you enough.  I am so delighted/thrilled with it.  Thank you 🙂 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I finished a video for a client yesterday.  It seemed acceptable to her.

With that project off my plate, I felt one of those treasured clear beginnings and endings meandering into my headspace.  What to do with it?

I was up until 1am last night watching episodes of a TV series on CBC’s website.  I was actually working, studying the format, learning the names of the producers, and getting a feel for the show.  The series has been renewed for another season and I intend to write a spec script in the next few weeks.  Hell, I’ll even set a date.  How’s…. July 5 sound to you?  Even if nothing comes of it, the experience will be a gooder.  I’ll learn lots, and improve my craft at the same time.

I can write that script AND stay on top of shepherding my other projects too.  I just need to commit to the deadline is all.  Actually… now that I think of it, I should set deadlines for all my projects’ milestones.

Why didn’t I think of that sooner?
