Storyteller

I’m interested in film. art, photography, etc. And so I tend to watch a ton of amateur stuff. The thing that I’ve found to be super important is story. It seems too many people want to be good filmmakers, but they ignore the story. They like their cool panning shots, shaky cam stuff, lighting, etc. But in that jumble they make unrealistic stories that no one connects to, or wants to connect to. Stories are what we connect to. We watch youtube videos with substandard quality, and enjoy it because it’s a good story that we can connect to or want to be part of.

Peace

Peace is important. Too many of us aren’t peaceful to be around. We get angry too quickly. We get frustrated. We get discouraged. We are selfish. Not enough peace. This doesn’t mean that we aren’t busy. You can be busy and not be angry, selfish, and discouraged. This is something I need to work on. ^_^ G’night.

Have Fun, Work Hard

I think you can have fun working hard. Doing it with friends helps alot. ^_^ YAY!!!!!

Always Right

All of us have a very strong intuition in many different areas. We believe we are right, even though we have nothing to base our opinions on except our own personal experiences. And personal experiences are not a great way to determine if we are right. We need to test out our intuitions. One thing I really appreciate about my dad is he is a statistics guy. He tests out many of his intuitions using statistics and studies. And this is really important in our lives. We could be wrong. And that’s why we use a testing of what we think to be right. That’s why studies and statistics are so important, and not television, well placed political words, etc.

Sunday Scriptures

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. ~ Psalms...

Meh

Mmm, sorry for the lack of posting. I’ve been fairly busy this week. I’m finishing up an iPhone app that I’m hoping to finish next week that is definitely exciting, especially since this is my first app that I’ve programmed myself. ^_^ And I’m working on a 30 second commercial that is going to take something like 8 hours to shoot. And other stuff. It was a good week, but I’m pretty tired. One thing I’ve noted is that I need sleep in order to do things. I seemed to average 6 hours of sleep per night this week and it’s just not really conducive to thinking well and getting the most done with my time. I know many people say that working long hours is important. But I think most of life is about a balance. Most people...

Creation

Creativity and creation is what we want to do as human beings. We want to become the world’s best designer, or build Facebook, or build a house, or take the best pictures on Instagram. We want to come out with the new biggest and most creative idea. We want to find that original idea that no one has ever thought of. But in reality, everything has been discovered and created at one time or another. Nothing is new under the sun. Everything has been based on someone else’s idea or ultimately on God’s creation. God is the only one who makes things that are original. And that’s why if we go to the source of His creation and His words we will receive the best inspiration for our ideas. We as humans don’t just create things, we innovate. We...
