people who exercise in order to get rid of period cramps are the ones surviving the apocalypse.
This weeks been a very mixed week. Came back to Uni after such an amazing weekend and immediately felt home sick. But things have started to pick up in terms of that. But today I went back to the physio and it turns out that it’s not a severe strain as first thought. She did an ultra-sound and told me it’s stress on the bone and potentially a stress-fracture. Luckily I got a doctors appointment this afternoon and they’ve referred me to hospital to get an x-ray. Although I’m glad I’ll finally get confirmation on what is going on, the GP also thinks it’s a stress-fracture which - if it is - means I’ll be out for another 6 weeks. I don’t have time for that considering BUCS outdoors in less than 2 months away. I missed British Champs and then see people I was beating last year getting selected for GB and it’s just so frustrating knowing it could have been me if only I was fit.
Anyway, need to think of the positives. I need to be grateful that I have a referral and my parents are willing to help me out with whatever I need. So glad I have them to fall back on. Onwards and upwards.
I felt the need to post this for three reasons:
- 1. people in general asking how I did it
- 2. people questioning if I took a gifset and ran it through photoshop filters
- 3. because I want people to know that its digital art- painted in photoshop- not traditional. In my original post I used the words “hand painted” because I was groggy and exhausted and I wanted to imply each frame is a from-scratch illustration but I think some people took it to mean there are 16 physical hang-on-the-wall paintings of this which there certainly is not. I tried to change the wording but the post kinda went viral before I had a chance to catch myself. Sorry about that. I may be less awesome than you thought. Oh and on a side note this method of animating is called rotoscoping (same method was used in the movie Anastasia).
