Oh my lonely blog, how I’ve missed you and neglected you these last 3 weeks or so. I cannot even begin to talk about how busy I have been. I’m exhausted, and for the most part, in a good way.
My third, and final, film project of the semester is complete. Well mostly. It could use a few touches to make it as perfect as it can be, but for the moment I’m pushing it back until tomorrow, and presenting it in class on Thursday. I’m relieved and overall satisfied with its completion. Main discovery in the process: it’s time to upgrade to a newer Mac. Has 5 years on this baby really gone by already?! Yes it has and while I love this dear little Mac of mine, it no longer has the up to date power I need, particularly in the field of editing software. It’s time to upgrade. This realization is both sad and daunting, but a practical necessity I will have to meet. Soon.
The one victory of tonight: talking with the dean about how to challenge taking Film History next semester and taking either Sound or Directing in its place. Excellent. Looks like it can be accomplished. I’ve debated much as to whether or not I could handle 3 classes next semester instead of 2, honestly, I’m not sure. Taking 3 classes might nearly kill me and I would have to absolutely forget about doing anything else for or with anyone else. While I want to take 3 classes, I am nearly certain that practical me will kick in and only take 2.
Other than that, I feel sad and dejected and want to crawl into a cave. Not really, but kind of…
I need sleep. I’m not sure I need anything else really.
I want a sidekick companion lol, but realistically, who has time for that? Never mind the fact that everyone I want never wants me and they are few and far in between. Oh the curse, we need to learn to live with each other. After a nice long slice of rest, I know I’ll feel better about these things. Sleep depravity does some cooky things to me sometimes. And yet here I am still up, because I’m not ready to sleep yet! God help me. *sigh*
But, going back to school stuff, maybe I’ll get lucky and win $100 in the student vote for best film of the semester. Given the load of shit I’ve watched, mine definitely has a chance. <3
