Day 36:  Decompression

Day 36.

Time to decompress

It’s 2:21am.  Exhausted yet wired, I scribble in my journal, “why am I still awake?”  I review the day.  I make a list of all the things I am going to get done tomorrow, well really, today.  I contemplate opening up the PDF of the script Monica sent me.  Do I really want to read the script for the first time when I’ve been up for 20 hours after a non-stop day?  No.  The answer is no.  I jot a page worth of random notes for another hour.  Finally, I turn off the lights.  I pass out and don’t move again until 10:38am.  I feel like a train ran over me.  I weigh my options.

  1. Fire up the Avid.
  2. Print out the script.
  3. Clean the house.

I choose option three.  I need a day away from everything and the house is offering the perfect respite.

My choice works wonders.  A clean house, burgers, and a good game have me fully decompressed.  Now, to sleep.

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…and decompress as needed.
