Subject: [Puptcrit] Exercises for Puppeteers


Hi all.

I'm still at the warehouse job because I haven't found anything else yet.
 
But I find ways to avoid losing my mind, beside using music, which I already do, but now it's losing some of its initial effect!

One way is to think up more efficient ways to do my job, but after a while, there's only so much you can do with limited resources.

Another way I tried is to refine and explore ways of interpreting my boring repetititive movements and use that as an exercice for puppeteering. It's fun! 

I practiced using my left hand most of today, figuring ambidextrous puppeteers might be useful.

So I'm wondering what other useful exercises for puppeteers could be done while working at labeling, packing, and moving stuff around.
I'm also curious as to other exercises useful for puppeteers, in whatever situation.
Thanks for helping me (and most probably others in similar situations) make useful a time that otherwise feels like a waste.


PS:
Strangely inspired by the repetitive boring tasks and my current unsatis-Factory situation, I came up with a probably good puppet show idea today, which cheered me right up for the rest of my shift! Must be the mind fighting to keep sane!
By the way, sanity is relative, and my sanity may be another's madness.
