I remember being 14 and loving this movie. Little did I know, I’d actually build a career around animation.
My slightly more than 2 and a half year old godson, Christian recently saw it for the first time and Under the Sea is what he’s got the beat for nowadays. So during our date yesterday, he and I watched it together. Despite being 27 years old, The Little Mermaid doesn’t feel dated at all. Still made me do a little jig, root for Ariel and wish I could be a mermaid.
In 2037, I hope when people watch the reruns of Insectibles, they’ll feel the same way 🙂
It’s been more than a year since my last post. Close to 15months. What’s been happening in my life? I was wrapping up on a job towards the end of 2014 and started a brand new job in 2015. This brand new job was kinda going back into production, which I totally forgot how full on it can get when you pull up your sleeves and get deep into it.
So that’s what essentially happened. Work took over my life – spending most of the year with an amazing team of people, creating and telling stories, seeing it all come together. Honestly, 2015 flew right by so quick I barely remember it. That’s why as I turn 41 today, I’ve decided that I’m going to be more conscious this year. This year isn’t going to be too different on the work front … in fact, it just might even be a tad more hectic but it isn’t something impossible. Even if it is, I’m going to be more aware of the decisions I make, the choices I have and the people who make my life as wonderful as it is.
Life will always overwhelm the best of us and we may be stuck between a rock and a hard place but how we look at it is always up to us. Check back tomorrow when 41 and a day old though. I may be singing a different tune :p
