Moving on up Jan. 11th, 2007 @ 06:55 am
To all you lovely people who still drop by every once in a while, I have moved out of the comfortable digs that Livejournal has provided and into the wilds of the blogspot. My adventure in the blogosphere continues, join me at: The Nomad Chronicles.

So, this first weeek of school has been pretty insane. I already feel rushed, frustrated, and behind. I'm convinced that there has got to be a better way to do this. School shouldn't have to be this painful. Funny anecdote: I called my parents and was worrying about post-graduation and work and real life and all that and they burst out laughing and said not to worry about it, real life is way easier than school. So...I reiterate...there's gotta be a better way.
I'm trying not to get panicky but I'm at the same place with my senior project as I was at the beginning of this week and that's not good at all...I've got to start getting my promo packets out to investors and I haven't even been able to meet with my graphic designer. But, this too shall pass.

The Picto-Personality Test

You are a person who is incredibly tranquil and values peace above all else.

When alone, you let it all hang out and ignore every social convention.

You are laid back. Anything goes, with you.

In the future you will have a good family life and lots of friends.

And so it begins. The last year of college. Two semesters, seven classes, 19 credits, one senior project. I've started feeling again...the numbness that set in on that day in January '01 (My own personal day of infamy) is slowly evaporating. So the new year brings new feelings, like buds hidden under snow, slowly emerging as spring comes. Excitement, a lot of fear about the future, and my constant wrestling match with God; though we're on better terms I think. There's even a girl, and all the nervousness, questioning, and wonderment that comes with falling into like with someone; it doesn't help that we haven't seen each other since '04. This year I will graduate, present my face to the world, step out of this chrysalis called Southern Adventist University, and hopefully spread wings that will hold me up; I may even fall in love. It's going to be an interesting year. Cheers.

I have stumbled upon a wonderful thing up here in Detroit thanks to my grandparents' numerous channels granted by satellite. What is this thing you ask? Channel 9415,I answer, Free Speech Television (FSTV). They're based in Boulder, CO and air documentaries and programs I haven't seen anywhere else. They have these great alternative news casts which makes me wish all journalists were still like this (instead of having sold out to the man:).
So, I'm definitely going to see if I can get my final project from Documentary Filmmaking on there...and maybe see about a job this summer. Check them out at: www.freespeech.org

So my weekend has been hectic. It started with rushing to get everything ready for the Destiny Drama tour, going on the Destiny Drama Tour, freezing in North Carolina, getting back here on Saturday night, and as soon I got off the bus I was off to a film shoot. And now I'm recovering. And hey Jess, I must have felt really bad about not going to the party because I had dreams about it all night.

I'm currently in a battle with Archibald MacLeish, author of the book J.B., a take on Job. I'm trying to figure out what the heck he is trying to say. Is this a take on Job from a Greek perspective? Well, it is, that's clear...but is he trying to portray Job as a tragic hero or as an epic hero...and why, why, why? And is Macleish's God really Zeus...so much to discover...so little time.

It's not fun being scared...I finished shooting a project of mine (16mm) yesterday and I am terrified that it's not going to come out. I'm scared about exposure; I'm scared about lighting continuity; I'm scared we don't have enough shots, I'm scared the camera didn't work right; I'm scared that we did it all wrong and that when Adam C. gets to footage to add the animated character it will be all wrong and he won't be able to do anything with it. My amazing sister as well as Adam Buck pointed out that too many things worked out yesterday for the film to be a total failure. Well, but it's still tough to give all my fear away and trust. But I'm working on it...otherwise I'm going to die very early of a heart attack brought on by too much worry...one more thing to worry about (yes that is meant to be tongue-in-cheek). Funny thing is...Of all the things I worried about yesterday before the shoot, it was the stuff I forgt to worry about that ended up causing the major problems. Faith is hard. Trust in God to take care of me however things turn out is pretty difficult too.
