    • The future is bright... I hope. (Day 4)

      I talked to my mom for a long time today about film school and the fact that I have very little experience compared to most people that probably apply. She's was really encouraging and I think for the first time since I decided to go this route, she finally realized how serious I am about this. She said everything is going to work out, no matter what.

      I've spent the last couple of hours researching different film schools and there are several that don't require any prior experience at all. Thanks Mom and the internet. smiley12.gif

    • Roommate Update (Day 3)

      I highly doubt anyone on the entirety of the internet cares about my roommate problems, but I don't know what else to write about so here we are. My roommate and I have found a girl who needs a place to live starting in June. She's really nice and really busy which means that even if she isn't really nice, at least she'll be out of the house a lot. Fingers crossed she's not Satan in disguise. smiley1.gif

    • Roommates, am I right? (Day 2)

      4 years ago

      Around Monday last week one of my roommates informed my other roommate and I that she will be moving out in June. No hard feelings, she just found a nice place that was cheap enough for her to live by herself (can't blame her for wanting that). But now my roommate and I are faced with the choice to either A) Stay in our house and find another roommate, or B) Move into a smaller, cheaper house in June. And let's just say neither option is my first pick.

      The thing about moving in June is that we would actually have to move before that because my roommate will be halfway across the world for the whole month of June, and moving is so expensive and complicated already with deposits and all that. On the other hand, we could just get a roommate, but we haven't had the best of luck with roommates so far. Three people living together creates this weird triangle-y, drama-filled black hole that is very hard to come out of alive.

      So as of now we're just keeping our eyes peeled for either a nice-looking house or a normal looking roommate. Wish us luck. smiley3.gif

    • Well, here we go. (Day 1)

      As promised, I'm going to try to post a journal every day for a year. Technically I'm writing this on the 11th at 1 AM but I'm going to count it as the 10th since I haven't gone to bed yet.

      Anyway, I'll be applying to grad school in about a year, which until now meant I wasn't worried about it at all. But last night, as I was laying in bed, everything sort of finally hit me. I'm a general studies major right now, and I want to get into the graduate degree at a film school. I mean the graduate adviser told me himself that I should do it. But getting in is very competitive (they only take 10 new people a year), and since I've never gone to school for film or had the means otherwise to learn by myself, I'm at a huge disadvantage. The only reason I'm not majoring in film right now is the fact that my university doesn't have it, and I don't want to start completely over in my junior year.

      When I apply to film school, I have to provide a portfolio, which the adviser said could include videos, photography, writing, anything along those lines, but I have next to nothing, especially compared to people who have actually majored in related things or at least had more time and money than I have. I just started taking only online classes, which gives me a bit more free time, but that doesn't change the fact that I need equipment. I'm currently saving up for a better camera, but I'm pretty sure I'm also going to need a new computer soon so I'm not editing videos on a piece of trash (sorry buddy).

      So... I just have a lot to do in a year. Help.



      PS - Sad to see Ray leaving AH. I hope we still get to see him often! smiley12.gif

      Realistically, I've only been following Rooster Teeth for about 1/4th of the time that they've been around, and I'll always kick myself for not finding them sooner. But in the time I've been watching Rooster Teeth, I can genuinely say that it has changed my life. I truly believe that without having become a fan of Rooster Teeth, I never would have been brave enough to make the decision to follow my passion.

      Thank you, Rooster Teeth. smiley12.gif

      Just bought my ticket today! I was kind of reluctant to go to SideQuest at first because I'll be going alone, but what better way to meet people than be thrown into a new situation without a friend to hide behind, amirite? smiley4.gif

      The 9th of April will make one year since I joined the site. I've always wanted to be really active on the site, but sometimes I get busy and it's hard to keep up. So starting on the 9th, I think I want to try to write a journal a day for a year straight. Maybe that's a stretch, but it's worth a try! smiley7.gif

      RTX is so motivating. It's motivating me to get in better shape (Fit4RTX), motivating me to save money because I don't want to die while I'm there, and motivating me to meet new people. I keep expecting the excitement of being chosen to be a guardian to wear off, but I guess it's not going to. And that's fine with me. smiley6.gifsmiley12.gif

    • When in doubt, pull an all-nighter...

      Well that's what I'm doing anyway. I got promoted to manager at work a few weeks ago, and tomorrow is the first day that I open by myself. I closed tonight which meant I got home at about 11:30, and I'll have to leave my house at about 7 tomorrow morning.

      Usually I wouldn't be as worried, but since I live about 45 minutes away, waking up even the slightest bit late would mean I would open late, which would mean I'm screwed.

      So now I'm watching Whiplash and drinking all the coffee my heart desires.

      Cheers!

    • RTX 2015 Guardians

      I got the email about 2 hours ago but I'm still sitting here in shock. I can't believe I get to be a guardian this year. I've been wanting to go to RTX for about 3 years and now that I can finally afford to go and be a guardian is insane. Rooster Teeth means so much to me and this is a dream come true. smiley0.gifsmiley12.gif
