I usually tend to be eternally optimistic. I don’t even really have to try. It is just something that seemed innate. I was always proud of this and at the same time I was a little reluctant to really let it shine. This was primarily because of a few people close to me struggle with it. However, I don’t think I have ever felt more pessimistic in my life. I’m going on a year and a half without working. Now granted, I took approximately 6 months off since I had worked pretty much full-time since I was 15. Then I did 3 months in my coding boot camp. But, still, it is increasingly difficult to stay positive about my situation. It almost, ALMOST, makes me wish I would have continued with my design career. This pivot isn’t even to a completely different career, it’s closely related, but it seems not close enough. At least I have had three interviews in one week. This helps make me feel a little more positive about my situation, but let me tell you, not much.
I am positive TFCon LA, TFCon USA 2019, whatever you want to call it, is going to be a show for the ages. If you’re an animation and/or a voice actor fan you owe it to yourself to be there. I am positive that Super7 knows exactly what it is doing with these limited release quick sellout one-offs for MOTU. Even their retail “partner” at almost a 50% markup sold out quickly. I am pretty positive we won’t be seeing anymore non-Original Trilogy vehicles in the TVC line. The lack of the Rogue One Assualt Tank at retail and the subsequent blowout online almost guarantees this. Something I don’t think anyone can be positive about is the new Joe movie, especially with such a lackluster choice of directors.
If we’re growing, we’re always going to be out of our comfort zone…Slick
