I was recently involved in two films. I helped create, as well as act in a short film, Deadline, for the 48 Hours of Hell film festival. It was really fun to make. If you watch it, you should also watch the blooper reel. I also acted in another short film, First Day of My Life. Hopefully I will be creating many more films soon 😀
I bought some new music off of iTunes, most notably It’s Blitz! by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Fleet Foxes by Fleet Foxes. I listen to both of these albums while I study. I would highly recommend both on them. I bought the extended version of It’s Blitz!, and I’m glad I did because it includes acoustic versions of a few of the songs that are very good. Fleet Foxes are interesting, because they sing about things like pheasants, and mountains, and quiet houses, but the songs are still exciting (in my opinion at least).
I think I have my schedule for next year figured out…RTVF 1310 (Perspectives on Radio and Television), RTVF 1320 (Intro. to Film Studies), GEOL 1610 (Geology), ENGL 1320 (College Writing II), and PHED 1230-504 (Aerobic Dance..hahahahahahaha XD). That’s about 14 hours, I think. I’m probably going to have to take some classes over the summer. I declared a minor a couple of weeks ago, Leadership of Community and Nonprofit Organizations. I still don’t know if I would rather minor in Sociology though. Decisions, decisions.
(I still drink way too much coffee…& I only go to Big Mike’s)
I had a good Halloween. It consisted of me hanging out with friends, meeting some cool people, getting some free food, and buying a Sham-Wow.
That’s about it.
