Less than 48 hours until I get this show cranked up. Sunday is shaping up to be a pleasant combination of trying to not be bored to death reading stuff and watching snow fall.

It is incredibly hard to bring myself back into this. 9 was my first and last failed exam. My BKM text has been working double duty as a monitor stand since May.

I did BKM 6 and 7, then got into 8 and just hit a wall. So, I'm going to skip over to Panning and work on the non-BKM stuff for a bit. Will probably hop back and forth like that for note taking, then work on getting it all pulled together better.

Be sure to keep digging into BKM 8 until it sticks. It's one of the more difficult chapters, but once you've got the story down, it's pretty easy to conceptualize imo.
