I’m drained!

Let me say this: I’m drained! Tonight, I completed and published three photo sets in Life and Times. Since the September 15 protest, the weekend with Katie, and the October Rebellion protests happened so close together, I decided to do the photo sets for all of these as one giant project. That’s something that will drain you by the time everything’s said and done. Everything that I would normally do for one photo set was done in triplicate. Three times writing. Three times picking photos. Three times watching movies. Three times the photo prep work. My goodness, I’m glad to be done.

That’s not to say, however, that these were not great experiences. Now you can finally see my first serious moves with radical cheerleading, as well as my usual black bloc stuff. So yeah. Plus Katie and I had a blast, as we kind of wandered around Washington and thereabouts, going from Chinatown to Metro Center to Dupont Circle to McPherson Square to Rosslyn to Georgetown to Foggy Bottom to Pentagon City and back to Silver Spring.

I also want to say that I think this is my biggest Life and Times project, though individually, these sets are not the largest by any means (J27 is the largest). But since they were treated as a single project, it’s big. All the more reason that I feel drained after completing them. I was concentrating hard for most of the day today to complete these sets, and now that everything’s done, the pressure is off, and I don’t exactly know what to do with myself now.

This also should explain the “if this means nothing to you” in the previous entry. 3-6-9 is the new cheer we debuted at the World Bank/IMF protest on Saturday, October 20. And you’ll get to see it explained and performed. And let me tell you… it was awesome.

So there you have it. I feel so drained right now…

Web site: Well, I had to pick one, so here's the largest - October Rebellion.

Song: I'm so drained I can't even think of music right now...

Quote: All in all, I'm just glad they're complete. Now they can join the other protests that I've been to in Life and Times, and be remembered years down the road.
