Still haven’t gotten down to editing. After finishing I was up for two days straight, basically. Last night I slept 13+ hours straight, and now I’m up till 4am because I slept too much last night. I swear I’m not on Earth’s schedule. Tomorrow is class and gym and hopefully edit. I do also have to work on my three… Read more »
