I haven't blogged in a while, so I figured I'd just keep everything up to date with this blog.
I have officially joined the Bethel Defenders soccer team, and play as a sub-goalie. I'm doing much better at catching and diving then when I first started.
There has been a new spark in my animation world which has recently been put to rest for a while. While brainstorming I kind of wished for a Photoshop program. I did some research to see if it really was $300, I was wrong. It's $700! When I have that much money I'd better be getting ready for collage or a car!
However, there's a free downloadable program by the name of GIMP. The name sounds kind of dorky, but the results of some animators on Youtube are outstanding! I'm going to consult a very good animator my parents know to see if this investment would be worth it. (If you're not buying it, is it an investment?)
I was talking with one of my good friends about a career I would enjoy taking when I'm older. Many ideas have come and gone but I am unsure of any that will stick. I thought out the options that I enjoy most,
-Gymnastics (though not very good at it)
Then it dawned on me, what do all of those have in common? They are all used in action movies! One of the two types of movies that I enjoy most! Now it sounds a little far-fetched, I think, but if these are some of the things I love doing, then what could be better?
I considered being a actor/choreographer before but I didn't fully realize that I loved those other things too, when I first thought it.
Any comments or questions would be greatly appreciated!
