May 2005: A Day in the Life of Drew

I just realized what my life will be like once May rolls around. Well, April 30th to be exact. That's when Batman rehearsals begin. It's also the month my team will probably restart full production on one of our aging titles with the Torque2D engine. It's also the month I'll be finalizing the production of my short Star Wars movie scheduled to shoot late this summer. Egads. What'll it be like? Well... it ain't pretty but here it is:

5:30am - wake up, stretch
6:00am - running
6:30am - breakfast and shower
7:30am - email check and forums check
8:30am - leave for Batman rehearsal (@9)
3:00pm - leave Batman for coaching (@3:30)
~7-8:00pm - come home, eat dinner
8:30pm - email and forum check
9-9:30pm - CODE!!! (mainly - Mondays for example would be mostly GDNet Direct)
12-2:00am - go to bed

Yep. That's gonna be fun [grin]. I've already begun to wake up for my morning run. So yea, wow it's almost bedtime right now. Scary. Tuesdays will be my only odd day, since that's when I hang out with my buddies at the gym. Gotta have a guys night out to retain my sanity [smile].

Luckily this is just the month of May. The show opens Memorial Day weekend and after that I only work at GA Sat, Sun and Mon through June until I'm done coaching for the summer, at which point my days will vary in a 3 on, 4 off, 4 on, 3 off schedule. And call times are at 11am, so that's not too bad. I mean I'll still be up early and running and everything, I'll just have more free time in the day. Plus I have my laptop with me so I can work in the trailer between shows.

So yea... 1 month left of quality free time. If I ever want to pretend to be bored, now would be the time [smile]

Wish me luck...

I find it depressing when you realize you won't have any free time to work on personal projects.

I want to watch the performance. Where is it? And if I can't attend, can you sneak in a video camera somehow (pay off a friend, bribe the anti-camera guards, hack the anti-camera security network at Six Flags...)

Me too. I have plenty of motivation to work on a personal project right now, but other things are currently eating my time(including a professional freelance project).

My days are almost as bad as Gaiidens.

I'll have about 3-4 hours a day to work on personal stuff before bed, so it's not too bad.

Either way, I'm not really complaining, I was mostly making an observation and sharing it with you guys. I'm looking forward to being back at GA, it'll just be a bit hectic for a while [smile]

Haha. Well I've been meaning to start playing around some with Adobe Premier for a film project I'm doing this summer, so perhaps I'll throw together some clips from last year's show into a short video. Cameras aren't banned at Six Flags or anything, I have about an hour of footage from the show and backstage from last year. I'll have much more this year tho, as I'm planning on putting together a documentary of making the show [smile]. We'll see.
