Trivial Effort: Saturday

Spent some time today watching clouds melt away. It doesn’t happen very often that you can watch clouds melting. That is not all that I did today. However, that may be the highlight of the day.

There was a project that I started, and completed today. It started with seeing some video on Instagram that someone else had made, and thinking: I want to make that. That has happened a few times now. This project made me think, learn, and grow a little bit.

Had to learn a few things about Adobe After Effects to make it happen, the learning curve took me a few hours to get the hang of it, and I think that I got some real results. It isn’t great, for my first project, it may be something I look back on and think, “hmm…”

This project is unlisted, but you can see it here, on my blog for now. It took me most of Saturday to make this video, including the time it took to render, and compress. I think uploading was the slowest part of the whole damn thing, it took forever to upload.

Wish we could get high speed uploads with our data plan. This three MB data uploads is for the birds. You would think we would have upload and download speeds that are about equal. I used to be a network engineer, I’m not without some understanding of how this stuff works. They are not being fair about the upload speed.

Not much going on. Wasting my life. Wasting my time. Waiting for my life to change; which is not ever going to happen. Seems I’m waiting for nothing. What a waste of life.

We have to start really living, and stop just existing like zombies. That lifestyle gets old in a hurry. There is much to be said for a simple life; yet, we have to feel alive while we are doing it. I want some real pleasure, that feels like pleasure; without the nasty side effects of having a hang over. Life seems like a damn load of punishment to me. Too much pain, hurt, and sorrow.

We could all use life to be a lot better. Do what you can. Be kind, you know. Someone needs to get with it. On the bounce!!
