Outside of all our office doors at work we have something called a “frame of mind,” which is basically a 10×8 black frame that we put pictures/images in to describe how we are feeling or to show something that’s on our mind.  Every now and then we get a group assignment that we all have to participate in, then we discuss our images in the weekly staff meeting.  It sounds like something straight from “The Office,” but it’s actually pretty fun.  Yesterday we had an assignment to put someone who we didn’t know into our frames who inspires us.  It was really hard not to put Lance Armstrong in mine, because I ALWAYS do that, so instead I chose someone very similar – Chrissie Wellington.  I thought a female was more appropriate, especially one that I admire so much (even though she has yet to confirm my friend request on Facebook… ha!!).  Chrisse was the Hawaii Ironman Championship female winner in 2008 and 2009.  She was an underdog that came out of nowhere to blow all her competition away (and a lot of the professional men as well).  She laughs a lot, is always smiling and works really hard.  I love her so much.  Looking at her makes me feel good.

While writing this post, I learned that we reached our fundraising goal for CRUSH!!  I did a happy dance with my coworker Misty since she was in here when I found out.  HOORAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Tomorrow I will write about our production schedule and the process of making this specific short film.  It’s going to be fun…
