Maniacal Midterm Laughter

 Written by    February 2, 2017

Ah, you know you’re starting to go off the deep end into the tea kettle when you make your blog titles alliterate.

I’m currently writing this blog during a study break. Now normally I don’t do this but this week was a doozy. This week decided to throw everything it’s got at me, even though I’m aware that weeks are not sentient entities and I’m just anthropomorphizing the march of time. And the biggest whammy the weeks has in store is one math midterm.

Now, I’m very good at math. This isn’t bragging (maybe slightly) but I keep that math is one of my better subjects. And now I’m looking at a sample midterm attempt that couldn’t even be used as kindling and I flashback to the days when I used to be not so good at math. And I admit that with the midterm being tomorrow, I may be slightly worrying.

But today is February 1!

Why yes, I’m fine. Why do you ask?

Why the sudden tangent?

Why the sudden tangent? Once upon a time there was an animator by the name of Monty Oum. And he was bloody brilliant. His animations were the pinnacle of animation, smooth and sweet and above all actiony.

He was a genius (and a sweet dancer). A genius of hard work, as in creating his animations he’d stay up for hours and days on end just to see a project done, only to move onto another one immediately after. In high school Monty Oum’s work ethic inspired me–and still does to this day, considering I’m writing this blog at midnight and there’s still work to be done.

I mentioned Febuary 1 because two years ago Monty passed away. He was too young. But then again, so are quite a few others. He still serves as an inspiration to many, including me. And his brain child, RWBY still lives on–and into its fourth season!

There were two things keeping me along this very whelming week. One is dogged determination to finish work. The rest is-

PURE UNBRIDLED FRUSTRATION.

So to everyone else dealing with midterms, I wish you the best of luck! Let us all do well, eh?
