Too old for 3D

I am so, so sleepy. I am trying to learn to animate in 3D in After Effects. I'm not finding it very easy, and now I know why I have been dodging it for about ten years. I am simply trying to get a line to touch a box. When I think I've got it, I rotate the camera and find they are still miles apart. I think the 3D mindset is something that takes practice, and perhaps as I don't play interactive games I haven't had that practice.

In short, I am too old for 3D. I recently turned 39 and this has rung some alarm bells. In one year I will be in the demographic for bowel cancer screening. I'm already playing lawn bowls.

Someone else can get the bloody line to touch the box. I'm going to have a nap.
