LotR making-of and a cosy cup of tea
Relaxing after a busy time...
After focusing intensely for a deadline, it can be strange to emerge and realise you don’t need to do that thing anymore, at least for a while - like when your eyes adjust to new light.
I’ve just finished my exams for the second year of uni! After a solid couple of weeks spent staring at a computer screen, reading and writing thousands of words, I feel like I’m rediscovering the world around me again… here’s a leaf, here’s a warm hot chocolate, here’s eight hours of sleep😂 Readjusting and relaxing isn’t always possible if things are always busy, so I’m appreciating every second of the time, even as I look forward to diving back into projects!
It can also be disorientating - what do I continue first? Where do I begin? What’s my priority? I have an audio project that’s my main focus first of all, then it’s my book, and a couple of art concepts I’m drawing up for friends.
How exciting, to be able to choose.
For now, though, I’m sipping a cup of tea and watching the making of Lord of the Rings. I started watching it during lockdown, but got a couple of hours in and then never got back to it! Now, I’m allowing myself that luxury, and already I’m feeling so inspired by it. I love watching the behind-the-scenes of films - it’s real magic in action!
I hope you can find some time to relax this week, and return to things that make you feel calm and inspired.
