First Day of Class

Upward Bound is officially in session. Today was the first day of class and I think I like this teaching business. Here are a few photos I took while the students were shooting. They had to shoot a short movie using no dialogue and no editing software. Monday we'll watch it so it should be entertaining. I can't wait.

Production Update

Production is running smoothly and it looks like I'm officially heading towards Post production. YES! I should reward myself with some sleep.

Production = Stress

I'm having flashbacks of the stressful life in LA. When I was in production for a movie I always had trouble sleeping. I'm currently in production and soon I'll start editing. This week will be trying for me. I have to shoot cover footage Tuesday and Wednesday, Wed. I start teaching, Friday I have a wedding rehearsal, and Saturday a wedding to shoot. I will not sleep, I will not eat. I hate it when my schedule is overwhelming, because I always try to do my best and when I have too much on my plate it's inevitable to cut corners. Wish me luck and keep me in your prayers.

I have a confession to make

I like watching South Park! There I said it (or wrote it/whatever), now I can sleep at night. I'm a South Park closet watcher. Is that bad? I've been spending my free time catching up on three of the seasons. I know it's a bad show, but it always has a positive message at the end...A moral lesson, if you will...But it's not suitable for the kids.

Obsession of the Month: Cooking!

The past week Trey and I have only ate-out once. It's safe to say I have rediscovered my kitchen! I feel so domestic and I'm loving every minute of it. A couple of days ago Linda and I made Rosemary Tortellino...and let me tell you it was delicious. I hope this obsession last longer than a month because Trey and I have saved a good chunck of cash, by saying no to fast food. I haven't been this inspired since I saw the movie Super Size Me. Well, I have to go now because I'm going to check out the food network website.

Too Cool For Abilene, Texas

Trey and I woke-up early to go to the Harley Davidson HOG Rally. Apparently, 5,000 bikers are in Abilene this weekend for this event. It was so cool this morning, watching all the people ride their bikes! Friday I was riding my scooter around town and several bikers saw me and just smiled. I'm glad I can make people smile.

Words From a Loving Soul

I'm so happy! I cannot express how happy I am. Graduation was absolutely wonderful. Afterwards Linda, Marilyn and I had a joint party that our parents hosted. We each had our own tables dispalyed with our college accomplishments and pictures of us throughout the years. Another thing we had on the table was an open book notebook for guest to write words of encouragement. Here is something Trey wrote to me:

"Hey babe, Dom,
I love you! You are awsome. Words cannot express how proud I am of you. Hope you have a great summer. Enjoy it because you will not have another one in a very long time. Relax and have fun. You are extremely talented you should not worry about your future. I will always be here for you in good times and bad.

Love your Hubby,

The light at the end of the tunnel is drawing near

Who would've thought the day would come when I would graduate. I guess it still hasn't come, but it will tomorrow. I'm so excited and extremely emotional. When I was younger I always thought of college being a mystical place that seemed out of reach, but here I am graduating with honors and the top graduate in my field of studies. All I know is the more I learn, the more I realize I don't know anything about anything.

If my dog had a blog...

If my dog had a blog he'd write, "I enjoy smelling the grass and barking at birds." What a life!

Picture Happy

Happy Graduation to me! In the next few days I'm sure I will have tons of photos plastered all over this blog. For graduation Trey bought me a sweet camera. (Thanks, Trey). I love it! I love it! I love it! I've been taking pictures of everything. I hope you enjoy my temporary obsession with photos.

Trey and I have been visiting churches for the past couple of months. This Sunday for the second week in a row we went to First Baptist. I like how their is an opportunity to volunteer with the video production. The studio to this church is amazing! Everything is new and they broadcast in HD. Sweet! This past Sunday Trey helped with the audio board and I observed. I'm more interested in running a camera.

Strange Dream

I don't know what I ate the other night, but for some reason I had this horrific dream about pregnancy. Yes, I Dominique was pregnant with 12 babies at once! It was the most random thing. During my dream I even went through labor. The 12 babies were just popping out. They were all small except one was huge and it had a massive head with bright blue eyes. It was so bizarre. I think the reason why I had this dream was because right before I went to bed Trey and I were talking about babies.

Paying Out the Nose For an Expensive Hobby

Despite my luck with electronics, I have purchased another external hard drive. I ask myself everyother day why can't I have another hobby that is less expensive. WHY? WHY? WHY? And Trey echoes the same question. It looks like this summer is going to busy even though I won't be working full time....yet.

- Today John, my boss, asked me to make a video for the radio station
- I'm doing some freelance video work for ACU online summer course
- I have to shoot and edit a wedding early June
- And I'm teaching a media class to High School students

Wow, I guess my major will pay for itself huh? I already have serious plans for my summer income. SAVE!
