HAPPENING NOW [VERY IMPORTANT]: Venezuela’s soldiers are killing their people. The Government is sending their armed gangs to kill them and they have censored all the media in their country, even blocking photos posted on social media sites. They shut down all the cable channels that broadcast news, so they can’t know what’s going on. The people have no source of protection at all. Students are protesting to save their country and their lives at this very moment. All they have are their social networks to get the word out so, PLEASE RE-BLOG THIS AND SPREAD THE WORD. VENEZUELA IS ON THE BRINK OF A CIVIL WAR AND CLOSE TO BECOMING A FULL COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP. THEIR PEOPLE NEED YOUR HELP. —— Please, this is very important to me, one of my closest friends went to visit family in Venezuela over winter break and they won’t let him come back to Florida. We’re graduating in a few months and it hurts me to know that his baseball career and all of his hard work and dedication to his grades here in the U.S. was all for nothing. Please.

one of my friends is in the middle of this shit right now and it’s terrifying, she said their twitters are getting blocked so they can’t share info, their murder rate is the second highest in the world and none of the murderers go to jail because they’re government supporters, they can’t find basic household items or food in their supermarkets, their economy has plummeted, inflation increased over 50% in the two months since 2014 started, airlines have basically left the country because the govt owes them so much money, they have no access to cars or car parts, they can’t cross any borders because their govt controls them and no one is helping them.
it is fucking pissing me off that no one is helping them when they’re asking for it and need it so much. And I am so frustrated that theres not more I can do than share things like this to spread the word, that I just have to hope enough people see it that something gets done.

Creative Project Motivation
Over the last decade I observed a pattern in myself and in various creatives around me when it came to working on projects, most especially personal ones. Whether you’re creating a comic, drawing an animation, writing a novel, sculpting a city, or any creative long-term project, it starts out strong with a full head of steam and a drive to see it to completion. But after a few solid days of hard work, that motivation starts to fade, and with each day it gets harder to work on it.
Around the 10 day mark is when it seems to get the hardest. There will be a few days where it’s difficult to pick up the pencil or boot up the computer. The true weight of the project suddenly seems heavier than I can handle.
This seems to be the most crucial point and can make or break a project. Often if I give up at this point, that’s it, the project will never see completion and simply rot in Development Hell. In a rare case, I might pick it up years later, but that’s happened maybe once. However, if I can get myself to keep going anyway and trudge through those few difficult days, I will slowly start building motivation back up until it becomes a solid routine. In every case that I can get past that rough spot, I have seen the project to completion.
I encourage others who are suffering in that questionable zone to give this a try. Do whatever it takes to pick that pencil back up, or open that writing program, and work at it.
A technique I’ve found that works very effectively for me is to tell myself that I only need to work on it for five minutes. Surely I can handle five minutes! Usually within those five minutes my brain will then switch over and I will work the rest of the day/night. Sometimes it doesn’t, and after five minutes I’ll still put the pencil down, which is fine. But I’ll try again for five minutes later that same day, or on the following day, and eventually it will click over.
Hopefully this helps some folks out there struggling in their second week of production!
