[Moving Zeal] Ubiquitous Free Bins

Free stuff is usually favorable. This free bin, for example, helped kick a brainstorm off for “The Storycharacter Trishna. The problem is excessive hoarding. Through this process of moving for the first time in years, I’ve been coming to terms with my hoarding tendencies. I’ve started with destroying that which cannot be resold at thrift stores and reducing my curiosity of diving in free bins or thrifting.

Day Map: #01 Behind the Scenes

As a fan of behind the scenes material included with most movies and the occasional album, I wanted to share the “day map” idea I made yesterday for a glimpse into some developing content. Starting at 9:30AM, I listed each intended project, marking each hour of the day with a different color, then digitally painted a big dot next to the title if I worked on it that hour.
