An editing week, sort of. S watched the third version of my rough cut and we discussed it for hours. I’m becoming a filmmaker. It’s a process, in which I make cuts which divert in various directions. You roll back one thing, strengthen another, and not least, find a story, a red thread. But it’s also like a puzzle: You change one thing and then other things stop working. I felt overwhelmed.
On Thursday I met with a classmate in a park to discuss our projects, which intersect a bit. It was only my second social meeting since we got back from Japan. He seemed surprised when I dodged his goodbye hug.
I biked to FU on Friday to validate my student card in the one machine they have opened for that. Unfortunately I forgot my face mask but was let in by the guard at the entrance anyway. It was completely empty.
Another way I procrastinated was by closing all 240 tabs in Firefox. I signed up for Pocket to deal with the separation anxiety. Again, browser tabs are the piles of paper you have on your physical desk, and closing them equals clearing the desk in one satisfying blow. Pocketing maybe equals taking a phone photo of some of the most important-looking papers. In both cases I will probably never return to them.
Dream Girls was an amazing film that we watched as part of the Fringe! x RAI Queer Eyes festival.
