Many Tasks, Many Blessings... Little Sleep!

Today was a busy day for me, though not as busy as tomorrow will be, but I still didn't get everything done I meant too (more on why later).

First I had my first day of my internship with Werc Werk Works - and as I my friends said, I work work worked! Basically I helped one of the producers transcribe interview footage for better organizing and an easier edit down the line. Because the company is new, it is definitely an all hands on deck mentality, which makes me happy to be there, because I feel like I am actually helping, not just doing busy work! Plus, the receptionist is super nice and offers to get me coffee! Not that I would ask her to do that, cause that'd be weird and totally not necessary; but like AuntieKnickers said, it's nice not to be the one getting coffee at an internship!

So, after my morning at the internship, I hopped a bus straight to school and commenced with my post-production work... well, "work" my be a bit strong. Honestly, none of us are really 'feelin' it when it comes to our current projects, so we kind of mosey along when it comes to editing.

Anyway, I did do some work, but I also had some fun chats with friends. Lately, my friends have been teasing me, calling me a Hardcore Christian. Now, the funny thing is that a year or two ago, this would have really bothered me. I had a real problem even calling myself a christian, let alone talking openly with school friends about my church life.

Now, I have this kind of peace with it. I recognize that I am, and always will be, on a journey, trying to figure out what I can do to share and be thankful for the blessings I have. And I think that one way for me to do that is by not shaming myself about my faith.

And I think that's also largely how I can share my blessings, because it often seems like people my age (and slightly younger) only of two kinds of faith - Hardcore Christian faith and Faith in Nothing. I like the idea that I could broaden their concepts in that way.

Oh, and back to that not having time... I'm afraid there is a sort of illness going through my new place - at least, my roommie's GF was sick, and he skipped class today because he didn't feel well, and although I've been doing a lot to try and stay well, I am craving chicken soup and orange juice and sleep.

So, the sleepiness kept me from doing things I should have, but there you are. It happens. I'll leave you with some photos of my chicken soup - made from scratch last night - and some of my editing classmates. Enjoy!

Wait, where are the chicken soup pictures? Well, those could be today's blog if you don't have time for anything else.
