Sad Sack Olympian

I'm Kasia Kowalczyk. If being a Sad Sack was a sport, I'd be an Olympian. When I'm not busy being sad, I make films. Sometimes I'm a monster...

Day 2579-14-2014
Son of Monsterpalooza…final day. I finally managed to insert contacts without any assistance. Small victories make me less of a Sad Sack. I celebrated by dragging a little giggling boy by his feet across the convention center floor, threatening to turn him into a meat pie.

Day 2569-13-2014
I just wanted to stay in bed all day. Tal dragged me kicking and screaming to a costume party tonight…so I dressed up as the Queen of Everything. I only granted wishes to those who were pure and true…which means no one got a wish.

Day 2559-12-2014
My ghoulish selfie.
Today, Jason and Sioux from the Cinema Makeup School turned me into the living dead. I was a lovely Baroque Countess whose husband drowned her in the Baltic Sea. Beetlejuice offered me some whiskey to help me drown my sorrows. Little children clung to my Rococo dress and sometimes gave me candy. It was a good day.

TimeLapse of my transformation from Brunette to Miss Havisham Grey! My lovely stylist at Primrose Organics Salon decided not to damage my hair by bleaching it three times in one day…so it will be an ever changing process!

Day 2549-11-2014
No t.v. today. No newspapers. No radio.
I stayed blissfully uninformed today. Met Kappy on the beach. Napped. Snacked. Read. Watched the gentle waves glide in…like frosting layers on a cake.

Day 2539-10-2014
A Day of Too Many Selfies.
A new season. A new lung. A new haircolor. This sad sack decided it was time to embrace the random grey hairs and take it further by going all grey. Knowing that one day, I will be an eccentric old lady wandering the halls of some moldering place…like Miss Havisham.
I took more selfies in one day of the process than I have in several years combined…though oddly enough only a couple of the finished product.

The hardest thing to do…but Sad Sacks do it every day.

Day 2529-9-2014
Spent a little time at the Cinema Makeup School today. Was reunited with my lifecast and saw bits and pieces of the foam rubber that will be transforming me this weekend. It’s been too long since I’ve done this.

Day 2519-8-2014
I spent this evening alone. Watched the glorious sun set, then the gigantic moon rise. Sat in the dark for a while until an astronomer walked by with a badge and opened the doors to this elevator…not seeing me. Wondering if am I starting to disappear.

Day 2509-7-2014
Ran out of time today and my perfect day was foiled. Tried to salvage it by shooting zombies at the arcade and watching people fish on the pier. I’m always so sad when Sunday rolls around because the loneliness of Monday is waiting beneath the surface.

Day 2499-6-2014
Sometimes I just stay in all day and let the corners of my apartment gather dust.
