So I have made a decision that, once again, is affecting my life.

My school have raised housing by $200 and that is something that I didn't need. Besides paying for my school, my parents are paying for my brother as well- and supporting us seeing as how neither one of us have jobs this semester. I feel guilty enough about my parents paying 50,000 bucks a year for me to go after a dream that even on my best days I'm not sure I'll accomplish.

I have on more year left and then I graduate from the Academy, but I've decided that I won't finish it in SF to save my parents money- 15,000 bucks per semester to be exact. That's 30,000 dollars a year. I'll be taking my remaining classes online, living at home again.

I don't want to leave my friends because they are some of the best people I know, but if anyone knows me then they know that I've never exactly been selfish when it comes to my family. And I don't want to know that I'm the reason my parents are barely getting buy.

After officially deciding this, I told my roommates (and two of my best friends) and this has resulted in Caitlin making a playlist dedicated to me. Although it's sounding a lot more like a funeral playlist, and it's making me even more sad about the fact that I won't be spending my last year with the crazy people that have been there for me for the three best, craziest, stressful, and funniest years of my life. I told them that I'll visit them, and I have every intention of doing that. Not because I feel like I should but because seeing as how I'm leaving a group of people that have become my family away from home behind, they deserve for me to visit and catch up on them to make sure they're still getting up to the crazy shenanagins that we get up to.

But...I have about 4 weeks left with them, so now is not the time to think about next year and be sad. I'll enjoy the "funeral" Caitlin is throwing me.

And on the bright side, my parents said that they'll put the money they're saving into helping me network. Which means I'll be going Splatterfest, Dallas Frightmare, and other horror conventions/film fests. And finally get business cards and a website. Now that that makes for what I'm giving up, but...I need to focus on the silver lining.

So any of you remember Asshat?

And the disaster that was my feelings for him?

And how he pulls me back in every time I get over him?

It happened again.

This is not good.

So for the last two weeks I've been editing my final project for school. The story is solid, the continuity is great, I have plenty of coverage and all that jazz- there's just one problem. One of my scenes was shot with a lower quality camera.

And it's noticeable.

So among the many things I have to tweak for Tuesday, I have to figure out how to color correct the rest of my scenes and add a grainy texture to them so it matches somewhat.

I have no idea how to do this.

I was so proud of my final until this problem reared it's ugly head.

Wow, I just realized that it's been a while since I posted something that wasn't fic related on here. So this is me correcting that.

Anyways, I've been in class for 3 weeks now and I LOVE them! All 4 of them rock and I've actually talked to people in my classes and made friends with them (something that didn't happen in Hunstville until I was already leaving). I've met some wicked awesome people at the academy and my RAs are awesome- and they've already established that I'm the go-to person for movies, as well as stealing my Buffy DVDs. Like hell that'll happen.

Anyways, homework for my classes is pretty chill. I have to write word vomit for 2 weeks and just make observation about random objects for my Successful Storytelling class, edit a 60 second movie trailer for my Non-Linear Editing class, film 10 cars and watch Vertigo for my Cinematic Storytelling class and pretend to be Batgirl for my Respect for Acting class.

My teachers are awesome too. My Cinematic Storytelling teacher is best friends with the director of Fight Club (one of my all time favorite movies), so that's fucking cool!

And then there are about 3 cute guys that I've met in my classes, one of them even asked me to lunch today cos we were in the lab logging our clips for our movie trailers. Of course he asked me then cos I look like shit since I'm sick (and well on my way to becoming sicker).

Other than that, nothing really to update. Except my brother did get pissed off at me enough to tell me to fuck off and stay outta his life over the weekend for something I didn't do. But that's all fixed since he ended up confessing to my parents the thing that he was pissed at me for- it's a long story.

And since I don't wanna end this post with a bad memory, as of now it looks like I'll be going to Comic-Con with [livejournal.com profile] bobbymcg next year. WE ARE SO FUCKING EXCITED!

So I made it to San Francisco safely, and I've only been here 4 hours and I already love it!


My school is smack dab in the middle of downtown, right next to Union Square. Not much else to really report about my move so far.



Oh! My mom started watching Merlin with me on the plane, and now she's hooked. She wants to have a Merlin night tonight in the hotel room. It's really surprising cos my mom's not into that kinda show.

 I'm 99.9% sure that I got in the Academy of Arts University in San Francisco. Admissions gave me a call this morning to ask me some questions, they’re gonna email me tonight with links to things I need to look at and then they’re gonna call me again tomorrow morning to answer any questions I have.

You know what this means?

I got into fucking film school, motherfucker!

I would post GIFs to express my joy, but photobucket claims that I've uploaded my max GBs and won't show anything I have until the 12th. But as soon as my GIFs come back, expect a GIF story
