So this year is really taking unrelentingly from me. It took my girl and sent her thousands of miles away. It took me out of film and forced me into a job outside my passion to support my siblings who suddenly require thousands for mortgage payments, making it economically unfeasible for me to see my girl. It took my future in the form of damaged data file scripts, storyboards, and concepts which I have been revising for the past twelve years (not to mention making those movies were the only long term goals I've ever had). It even took my entire past in the same incident as years of journals, videos, photos, portfolios, timelines, and research suddenly became inaccessible. Financially, major surprises have been around every corner. This year won't break me, but it's pushing harder the more I try to make the best of it. Other Pigs out there, I wish you luck. Still four more months of this... luckily there's little to nothing left to take.
