Hey-ooo

I haven't updated in a very, very long time. :/

Job interview at Macy's tomorrow. God, I need a job so baddddd. :{ I really wanted one at EB Games or Suncoast, but hey, beggers can't be choosers.

WALL-E, WALL-E, I WANT TO SEE WALL-E! SO VERY BADLY! D:

Happy Easter, and what not.

So I haven't updated in EONS. I've been reading my friends posts every now and then, but I just haven't updated.

I broke my laptop battery when I dropped it on the floor at Tim's house. We were filming Camille's film for an English project. It was pretty fun. I had about five lines, one of them being "I baked these cookies and I thought you might like some. You work so hard, I knew you'd like a reward." How fitting. <3 I had just enough power to edit the footage and burn it to a dvd. Just barely.

Today is the second day of my parent's shop being open. It's called Gold Spike. It's an antique store, coffee house, kind of thing. It's out in Richland, in Buena Vista, and used to be an antique store called Goodstuffs. The big, fancy, hi-tech coffee brewer isn't working yet. There are so many pipes and wires that need to hook up to it, just when you think it's finished, the water hose bursts off. (True story.) We haven't really had that many people show up, but it is only the second day.

BUT PERHAPS THE MOST EXCITING THING is my idea for the Film Institiute final film project. You have to make a 2 minutes movie trailer for your film idea, then show it in class, and if it's really good and everybody likes it, you get to make your film. Of course, it has to be a short film, only about 20 minutes. Which may come as a challenge, as my story has a little depth to it. The film is called "Mango" and is about a boy in school, Derrick, who is very strange, and stares out into space alot, and is pretty much an outcast. Then this girl, Julia, comes along and has a fascination with the boy and decides to try and make him more sociable and less awkward. She ends up asking him out on a "date" one saturday, in an attempt to get him to show his true personality. I guess you could say that it's a Drama/Romance. It's sort of hard to explain...

If everything goes well, I would have Jon Henry play as Derrick, and Fiona Erickson play as Julia. I already asked, and they both pretty much said yes, but I haven't shown them the script yet. And I just barely had time to ask Jon, so he doesn't even know the plot. I reallllly hope he doesn't hear it and change his mind, because he was my first choice as the part. Which is why I figured I could show him the script to try and sway him. I have about 4 pages worth of it typed, but it's hard to type a script when your laptop is broken. The trailer is due on April 4th.

And also, my Documentary is due on April 4th. I got chossen as director in Film Institute for my documentary idea on "Cell Phones". It sucks. Which is why I've been typing my "Mango" script for the past two days.


THE END.

Life After High School

SO I DON'T KNOW FOR SURE WHAT I WANT TO DO AFTER HIGH SCHOOL... But I do know that I want to go to the Art Institute in New York, most likely for film.

God this is scary. I mean, this is what I'm going to be doing for the rest of my life. I can't help but be a little nervous about my decision.

I'm your friend too, Mr. Todd

Oh. My. Gosh. Sweeney Todd was very, very good. Even though I covered my eyes at certain parts - the music was great. It certainly did have the Tim Burton charm to it, plus about 100 gallons of blood. Most musicals don't come out well on the big screen, but this was most certainly an exception. It's one of my top favorite musical films.

I really do relate to Mrs. Lovett (in a creppy, a strange sort of way). If I could play and role in a musical, it would definitely be her. :D

Damn you, Hillary!

Hillary Clinton won the New Hampshire primaries. It was said to be perhaps the biggest comebacks in primary history. Whatever. As long as she stays out of the White House.

No more Wii jokes

Today was AWESOME. I really want a Wii now. And Super Smash Brothers. Apples & Apples is my new favorite board game.

"I want Boy. Wait, is than an R? Roy?"

"Okay Steve - which would be more awkward. If Tracy walked into the room holding a gall bladder, or if she walked into the room holding whips?"

"I love to Skeet with my Wii."

"Glitterally!"

Oh, and there's a picture of me holding the Wii controller up to my mouth. And if you've ever seen a Wii controller, you know that it looks like a dirty picture. Hawhaw. :U

A Strange, Insistent Music

So Ragtime. I love it. Beyond all reason. I am so glad I finally scrapped up the courage to join Drama in my last year at Oakcrest. I originally went into it to build my self-confidence. But I never expected to meet so many wonderful new people, never expected it to be so much fun, and of course I NEVER EVER expected that I would stand in front of a huge crowd of people I didn't know very well and sing. (Even if I was shaking like a leaf, I did sing.)

The first number is amazing, and I get chills whenever we do it. The whole group rotating thing is stunning. I really hope you are all able to see it, because it should be amazing.



lol, that litte boy is such a nerdddd. XD

Oh, and they just put the new chairs in the Auditorium. They are blue and fold up like the ones at Hess. They also painted the walls white. If only it would be done in time for the musical. But it's highly unlikely.

New Year

So 2007 is over, and here comes 2008.

I've never really been a big fan of New Years. I just don't get that into it like some people do. I guess you like it more as you get older. It seems to be an adult thing.

Just got home from Georgia, too, at about 10 o'clock. It was fun, but I really didn't do that much there. The biggest thing we did was go for a walk through the University of Georgia on sunday. I LOVE the campus, but they don't have any majors that I'm interested in except Art. I seem to be falling back into my old hobby. I'm still very indecisive about what I want to go to college for.

I'm not staying up tonight. I'll get to see 2008 in the morning. My resolution for this year is to take more risks, regret nothing, and by doing this, help build my self-confidence.

So Happy New Years everyone, may all you resolutions come true, etc., ect.

Plato <3

Plato wrote in his Symposium that humans have been looking for their soul mate ever since Zeus cut them in half. In his mythic story, Plato describes a world where there were men, women and people who were both men and women. Apparently, humans began discussing how they could climb up to heaven and replace the gods. The gods were upset by this and discussed what should be done. The simplest solution would be to destroy mankind, but Zeus came up with a better idea. He suggested cutting all human beings in half. This would serve two purposes. First, it would immediately double the number of people making offerings to the gods. Second, it would weaken the humans, so they would not be able to carry out their plan. Zeus' idea was accepted, and the humans were all divided into two.

...and so, the humans wandered the earth evermore, searching for their other half.
