I'd like to say that I have a finished model and that I posted a short video on youtube, but I don't. I can't seem to get the eye rigging right and I think I did something wrong with the armature because trying to pose the model results in weird deformations of the model. I'm trying to figure out how to fix it, but it is slow going at the moment. There is so much I don't know. I am not giving up though. I'm too close to being done to give up on it.
I have also started reading a book that a teacher read to my fifth grade class and I reread in high school. It isn't as fun a read as it was then. I keep spotting problems, mainly things that could be written differently and better which would make the book have a better flow to it. I'm basically ruining my own nostalgia. Its good because I'm seeing the problems, but sad because I really did love the book. I still like it somewhat, but not as much as before. Or, perhaps it isn't as much fun to me because I already know what is going to happen? Or maybe it is a combination of the two?
Lately I have also been asking "why" to nearly everything I come across. Mostly to things that have a story line to them like video games, books, movies, television shows, commercials, etc. Sometimes there is an answer to my question, sometimes not. My room mate seems to be annoyed by my questioning as well. If the question I have about soemthing is on television and he's in the room I have a tendancy to ask out loud, and by his face and breathing sounds I can tell that he doesn't like it when I ask about such things. I'd prefer to talk to someone else about it or even on the forums here, but I don't get along with anyone enough to do that. Plus there isn't a forum specifically for questioning and tearing appart various story lines. I suppose the writer's forum might be a viable section, but I am already disliked enough there and I still can't phrase things correctly to make everyone understand what I mean when I ask a question. There are a few folks I would venture to ask questions and discuss things with, but I'm not entirely sure if they'd be willing to talk to me. On the forums they seem like calm folks with a cool head, but I'm not sure how they would be in a private message chat. There are people who act differently in different situations, so it is entirely plausable they could behave differently. Then again, there is nothing to suggest those individuals are like that. Ugg, I'm going around in circles. Time to end the journal entry for now.
