"Progress isn't made by early risers. It's made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something."
I only woke up at 8:38 a.m. because Bingo was squeaking for breakfast:
|Bingo's "FEED ME" Look.|
And by "squeaking," I mean whining. On the other hand, I was awakened at midnight by the neighbors ALL AROUND me setting off fireworks! Across the lake, next door, across the street. Good times. Then I was awake, so I reviewed my 2018 journal for a coupla hours and noticed how much I actually accomplished. So I wrote a "Yay, me" list.
One of those things: I built a boom for my camera! (And by "I" I mean that I got the materials and Brother Atlasta whipped it together for me, lickety split. I could have done it, but I would have been less lickety-splitty). As I stood staring at my camera set up on the tri-pod trying to figure out how to film a new way, I thought, "Why am I trying to reinvent the wheel here? Someone has already done this and has a tutorial on Youtube!" And so THANKS to water colour artist Wonder Forest, I saved a LOT of time:
And THANKS to my bro. Just waiting on clip thingie from Amazon to secure to the galvanized pipe and then I'm set for overhead, hands-free filming. Squeeee! I did it. 2019, here I come! Tutorials, journals, and courses, oh my! :-)
