I went through all my old journal posts today and instantly felt a wave of nauseous embarrassment hit me like a truck. I'm taking my judgment of my own writing from two years ago with a grain of salt, but it's easy to forget how much you and the way you think changes in such a short amount of time. Now that I've removed some of those grammatical terrorist attacks from my profile (even though they were on the internet and will come back to haunt me eventually), I'm ready to start fresh.
A ton has changed since the last time I posted! I'm currently attending UC Berkeley and am studying Film. I just finished my Freshman year, but I currently have Junior standing and will most likely graduate in the spring of next year. Berkeley is a pretty great school, but It's not really the best place for me. Even though it's rather quick, I feel ready to move on to the next stage of my education at graduate school. I'm hoping to attend either NYU, UCLA, USC, or UT Austin for graduate school and will be focusing on becoming a film director. I'm learning as much as I can about cinematography and lighting, but I love working with actors and taking a leadership role on a film set, so directing is the gig for me.
Besides classes and film, I've not been doing much besides Xbox and listening to new music. (Who else is listening to the new Death Grips album? I feel like it is accessing previously unused portions of my brain and strengthening them, while simultaneously stripping me of any emotion besides rage and bloodlust... Is that bad?) I'm going to try and start participating in this community more. I used to have a good little group of (this is a stupid term but somewhat accurate) "Internet Friends," and now that we have grown apart I miss those relationships. Hopefully, I can find some new friends here! Feel free to message me here or anywhere to talk about movies, video games, music, life, or college.
