And.. I’m on HOLIDAY! Loving the feeling of an assigned week off – actually, today is a bit different to how the rest of the week will be, as I’m up at 5 30 to do my final workout of this plan and then it’s stretching / light jogging for a week! Yeah! A week of no pressure will be wonderful – really excited. Also really excited that Murray is in the Wimbledon final. It’s cool to see someone continue to work so hard on improvement. He fully deserves to win, as a testament to hard work and determination, qualities I have come to admire above all else. I’m not sure I admire talent – I am in awe of talented people, because I don’t understand where it comes from, but the ability to persevere, keep working to improve and never give up.. That’s what I truly admire.
Yesterday’s filming was fun. Also pleased with how I performed – really was able to get into the zone, deliver the lines and get it all done nice and efficiently. The cast and crew were great – met some cool people, and it was a cool experience for me to get of being on set, working with crew and also the process of waiting around between shots & set ups. Nothing beats on the job training. And.. I got paid! Something of a milestone, so I’m pleased with that.
Off to Nottingham for a week of pure chilling out – really what both myself & Billy need at the moment I think. It’s hard work freelancing as you’re completely accountable for your own time, and not being paid much, it’s easy to feel that the time you spend not earning should at least be spent honing your creativity / other skills so you’re not wasting time. Ultimately the best way to be in life, but it can be hard to be so responsible. This week is all about recharging – I’ll do stuff, as and when I want to, but if I just want to sleep for 5 days, I’ll do that too. That’s the plan, anyway.
Have managed to help my first “client” lost over a stone in weight! I’m so pleased for him, and I’m glad that I’ve been able to help him achieve his fitness goals so far. I’m really impressed with his commitment to it all. Thinking about the film. I’m possessive of the project because I feel that I’ve been the driving force behind it, but possessiveness is a silly way to be. Not very helpful at all.
Anyway, on with the day. Looks like it’s going to be a cracker! Excited.
6.02. Early. I like being awake at this time!
