So .. started work two ish weeks ago. It's been crazy, and hectic and really long hours. I got my quota done a little faster than expected which was good, but I've been working 14 hour days almost every day for the last two weeks, so take that as you will. I hope I can get that down to 60 hours a week otherwise I'm going to just die of sleep depravation or something. I dunno. I'm a workaholic.

All the date swapping and team swapping (and software swapping) means I can now work remote and don't have to move to Ottawa at all. While it would be nice to be in studio, make some more good friends and have instant feedback from teams leads it's a super huge relief to not have to go. It's also a really good excuse to splurge on that tablet PC I'm eying that just came out since the 21UX Cintiq's are outta stock online (and currently outta my price range, but a girl can dream :) )

Anyone know if Flash MX (like that horribly old version of Flash that Ugly is done in) works with Win 7? My google-fu on the subject is full of fail right now :(

Sooooo.... It looks like the "I'm moving outta Toronto " city will be Ottawa instead of Halifax. Much closer, much less stress. It's all arranged already. Got a place to stay til I can find an apartment, and my bus ticket bought. I will be leaving next Sunday (not this Sunday, the next one). I shall figure out some manner of celebration exeunt for the night before the night before. It'll be grand I'm sure.

So I got a job offer in Halifax. It's about 13 months job security, but in Halifax. Heard back that the company I was working for before probably won't have more work for a while, so it's looking a lot like Halifax here I come. There's some minor logistics to be worked out still. I have to say that I'm extremely excited and horrifyingly terrified. Hopefully when I get back to Toronto I'll have enough work experience and a strong enough reel to start going after the big fish here.
Yeah. I kinda got mushed by holidays this past week or two. We had my mum staying with us which was nice, but unproductive other than the livingroom and kitchen are clean. Rhubix and I have a sketch date tomorrow. It shall be magical. There are also talks of dancing/sketching sessions to come. It's part of our plans to get thinner quick and make dozens of dollars. It also shall be magical.

Pretty much working on my demo reel and portfolio right about now. Stayed up ridiculously late last night looking for appropriate music for it and am now wresting the Premiere Beast to get it put together. It a challenge finding music to go with zombies that isn't over-aggressive.

As you can see I've been somewhat productive over the last couple weeks. I finished the rotation of Frankie and some other lineups for No Pants. My agenda for tomorrow is to finish the lineup of Frankie's Family I'm working on and either start cleaning up Frankie's room (hah!) or doing a lineup of the occupants of Liz' house. I supposed a pose / expression set for Frankie might be a good idea too. So much to do so little bus fare.

So I'm now out of school, and out of work again. I was working on Ugly Americans here in Toronto at Cuppa Coffee as an inbetweener. I've been taking every test they'd let me to hopefully get back to work as soon as possible. We still haven't heard back on season 2, which is silly to me considering how popular the show is. So fingers crossed everyone and if you're in the States/Canada watch the show when it airs on Comedy Central/Comedy Network on Wednesdays at 10:30 (9:30C) (In the States) or Sunday at Midnight (in Canada).

Other than that I've been reworking my portfolio and finalizing designs for the main cast of No Pants are Tied to my Heart. I get to play with one of the Cintiq workstations at Cuppa this week and next week so cleaned up character designs and rotations may follow. I have plans for a short animation bit with Frankie that I'll hopefully be able to get done in the next little while.

More miffed at the idiots who made my OS HD and their horrible customer support or rather lack thereof. 3-5 business days for receipt of shipment should mean just that not 2 weeks to mail out the bloody replacement part. Stupid stupid stupid manufacturers.
