Movie Madness

Hello. Today has been about getting back into the regular routine. I only have two more days left of internship. I'm in post production right now so i'll be up late with my editor working on or last movie. When I'm done with film school I'm not going to know what to do with all my free time. Especially since I'm so used to making short movies. In a matter of 3 months I've directed 4 short movies. Oh, my god, that's insane! I should be dead!

Movie #1
This was about a man who was obsessed with ice cream.

Movie #2
This was a hardcore drama about an adultress who wrote all her intimate feelings in her Journal.

Movie #3
This was about a woman who's going into labor and takes out all her agression on her poor husband when the elevators aren't working and she has to walk down 12 flights of stairs.

Movie #4
A monster whose true passion is playing golf.

I can't believe it's almost sad.

Turkey Break

So, the break has been wonderful. I'm house sitting for the director of my film school. Her house is real gothic, so it's a little creepy, but it's been good being away from the drama and fast pace of LA. I like Los Angeles, but I've realized that I love Texas. LA is a nice place to visit, not to live. And I've lived here long enough to know. Good thing I'll be on a plane back home in 2 weeks. Anyway, I spent thanksgiving at a friends apartment. There was a huge group of us from school. This is the first time I've spent thanksgiving away from my family, but it wasn't as bad as I expected. I actually enjoyed myself, imagine that. All my roomates, all 4 of them, went home over the break so I've had a chance to spend time at this house by myself and reflect over this past semester. I've learned a lot about myself and about how special the connection of family is. How wonderful friends are and how blessed I am to have people who care about me. And I've realized that failure is only when you don't chase after you dreams, even if people think your crazy because you want to live in LA for a few months while your husband is living and working in Texas. I love my life and I wouldn't change anything.
