Oh, wow . Jeez. It's almost like I disappeared from here.

I'll have to make a note to be better about updating this...and my fics, I am so sorry for everyone waiting for updates. I have not forgotten.

Here's how my life's been )

So that's been my life so far.

But once this week is done, I'm going to sit down and finish writing Legacy and then get back to writing fic and making fanvids.

And for those who are curious about the new films I've made, you can check them out here.
the_huffster: (11/Amy)
As far as updates go, I haven't done much writing with the exception of SoG. Actually, I haven't done much for any fandom simply because I was focusing on SoG and then SDCC13 happened, and then it was getting things ready for school again.

As far as SDCC13 goes, I got badges for all 4 days! Took awesome pictures, got three BtVS related autographs (and two pictures), AND got to the Bates Motel panel and had to hold back tears- both from sadness at not getting in, and from happiness at being able to get in. I got into the EW panel and was able to see Matt Smith, got into the Teen Wolf panel, got into the Haven panel (front row, got the best pictures ever, and two autographs), did the Bates Motel panel, and ended it all with the Once More, With Feeling sing-along. I bought my brother a stuff animal STD (inside joke with the family), the missing Buffy (and Angel and Faith) graphic novels I needed, and a Skyfall poster (for 1 bucks). I also got a free Evil Dead poster, and a Haven poster. And some other cool things.

Besides SDCC13, the only other exciting thing that happened was my Directing 2 teacher emailed me (I had him as a teacher last semester) to ask if I wanted to write a 5 page script (which equals a 5 minute short film) for the second week of class, since he thinks I have natural talent and other nice things that gave me confidence in my ability to direct. So I've been working on that for the last 5 weeks, and it's fun...but stressful since I feel like I have to live up to some high (and probably not real) expectation. While writing this script I went from a film about someone being stalked by a evil entity in their bedroom, to a mob hitman walking away from a job, to a conartist stealing from a serial killer, to (finally) a guy from a church giving into the temptation to steal and ends up dead.

And, finally, for the last update. My baby brother left for college yesterday. Me and my parents drove 4 hours with him to Corpus Christi to move him into his dorm and left Corpus Friday morning. It's been just over 12 hours and I miss my brother. I knew I would miss him just a little more because he's off at his own college, which means he's growing up, but I didn't think I would miss him this much. We got home and I walked to my room to put my bag away and had to pass his room. I kinda just stopped in his doorway and looked around, and ended up just breaking down crying because I already missed him. It might seem weird since I go to school in San Francisco and didn't see him that much anyways, but...it's just somehow different.

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.
the_huffster: (Default)
I just realized that the last time I posted to here was back during my final project of school, not counting my fics of course.

So here's a super short update because my life really has been boring.

My summer sucked because all of my friends weren't talking to me, and the ones that were don't live in Texas. The only exciting part was going to SDCC and seeing everyone I love.

The other thing that happened this summer was that my extneral hard drive got wiped so I lost everything. Which means I'm having to re-gather everything I had, and that's a bitch.

School has started up by now and nothing exciting has really happened except 2 days I fell and landed on my writs wrong. So I went to the doctors today and it turns out that I fractured my wrist.

Other than that, nothing much has happened.
the_huffster: (Band Candy)
 So I just realized that it's been a long ass time since I gave a proper update on events in my life. And since I've got time, I've decided to really give out updates (and rants) about events that have happened this summer.

I'll put them all in separate cuts in case you don't want to read about the stuff you have on interest in. With that said, on to my update(s)!

Update: Dad's Heart )



Rant: The Shit I Put Up With From "Friends" (And When Enough Is Enough) )



Update: Film School and Nerves )

Update: BFFL Time and Concert )

the_huffster: (Torchwood)
 So my dad's surgery went well. The doctor said he's pretty sure he killed the extra heartbeat, but my dad is staying at the hospital over night just to be sure and basic post-surgery procedure.

I'm hoping that his heart issues are fixed for good now because, honestly, I don't think I would be able to handle it if something happened while I was in school. At least when this all started, I was going to community college that was 30 minutes away from my house and I could get to where I was needed quickly.

But if his heart wasn't fixed and something happened after I moved to San Francisco, not only would I not be able to handle it but I don't think I could be okay with myself going to a school states away from home while my dad had this weird condition the doctors have never seen before.

But, I'm trying this new thing were I'm being optimistic. It's not working so well right now.

And since I don't wanna end this on a depressing note, me and my best friend are going to see Parachute, Michelle Branch and the Goo Goo Dolls this Sunday. We're excited cos it's our last big thing we do before school starts up.

We would've gone to RHPS like we usually do, but she has to go to this family thing on the day Rocky Horror is happening. No big deal, we figured we'll go over Christmas break or next summer.
the_huffster: (Giles)
 It's official.

I'm no longer a college student. I ended up talking to my mom about film school on Thursday, she talked to my dad and they said if film school is really what I wanna do then I can do it.

So yesterday , me and my mom dropped all my classes that started on Monday and the rest of my summer classes. After today (cos I was already taking a class that ends today), I will a college dropout- I guess that''s the word you would use. Then on Monday I've gotta drive up to the community college, sell back my textbooks, talk to the advisors to make sure my parents will get their money back (since I dropped before the first day of class) and then call my high school and have them send my transcript to the school I'm thinking about going to.

Speaking of that, I was surprised when my parents said that the film school in San Francisco was fins for me to go to (if I get in). And since that school doesn't have parking, I'll sell my car and use that money to help with tuition. I'll get a job on campus so I can have spending money (and put aside 20 bucks to buy a car) and then when I come home for the summer, get a summer job and use that money to buy a car when I finish school.

But this school is just like any other college, except it's purely for artist (writers, directors, filmmakers, musicians, painters, etc.). It's a four year school and at the end of it, I'll have  a Bachelor's in Film. And big name companies (Dreamworks, EA Games, Sony, Lionsgate and a bunch more) hire graduates from this school, so that'll help me get a start on my career as a director.

And this school, the Academy of Arts University, is one of the best film schools in the US!

My parents were thinking about letting me go to a film school in London, but that kinda made my brother sad (the fact that he wouldn't be able to talk to me cos of the time difference) so I told them to forget it.

Anyways, I'm going to film school!
the_huffster: (Band Candy)
 So for the last 5 years, I've really wanted to be a director. I've never told my parents cos they've always said they don't want me to be a struggling artist, and they're sure that if I went off and became a writer (like so many think I'm gonna do) I won't make it.

I'm 19 years old, in college, and (honestly) it's not working out for me. I mean, it is but not as well as I thought it would. I'm a History major, and I love history, but I really wanna do something creative as a career. I recently has a 3 day discussion with my parents about college (I won't go into detail, but I've been going to college for a year and don't have the credits I should have going into my second year). In that discussion, they had asked if I wanted to go to school still or find a trade school.

I didn't tell them that I wanted to see if there was a film school in Houston. So I told them that I wanted to continue going to school.

Big mistake.

Why was that a mistake? Because I just found a film school that has students learn from legit professionals (both movie and TV) and the school pairs each student with a mentor (a well known director, producer, screenwriter, or whatever you wanna be). And the best part about it, the website says that most students get hired by their mentors company before they graduate- guaranteeing them a job.

I'm thinking about applying right now, and then talking to my parents about it if I get accepted. The best part- it cost the same as the community college I'm going to. And it only takes 6 months to graduate.

I dunno. My parents don't exactly support my creativeness, but I really wanna do it.

Which is why I think I'm doing something stupid.

 Okay, so I had to write a short story based off one of four poems my English class had read, and I chose to write a story based on Emily Dickinson's 'Because I could not stop for Death'

I liked it so much, I decided to post it here and let everyone read and tell me what they think. So feel free to comment with your thoughts on this story- and you don't have to have read the poem, but it'd be cool to hear what people who have read the poem think about this.

And yes, I did use a Repo! song as the title of this story.

 The rest of my day was pretty boring- except for watching Buffy during Tai Chi, but we've already covered that part.

And I have an interview tomorrow. So I'm pretty excited about that.

But something awful happened during my Government class...

 So I went to Tai Chi this morning feeling like shit. But I soldiered through it and went through the whole routine, hoping that I wouldn't faint during the middle of it.

I got dizzy, lost my balance, lost my hearing and sight for about 2 minutes (but it felt like 2 seconds to me), nearly vomited and went from freezing to burning up during the routine.

But I did not faint.

Yay!

Turns out that my instructor was keeping a close eye on me during the whole time after I had a dizzy spell during the warm up. According to her, my pupils were nearly the size of my irises.

So she told me to go home and forget my other classes, but ask someone if they could give me a copy of that day's notes.

Me being me, I dismissed it and tried to go to my English class. I happened to run into one of the students in my English class, and they told me to go home as well.

So I figured if two people are telling me to go home, I'll go home.

I get home and decide to look at my pupils once I remembered what my Tai Chi instructor had said about them being huge.

My pupils are not as big as she said.

Instead, they're as tiny as a ball point pen.

I have no idea what is going on with me, but it needs to knock it off.

Being sick tomorrow is not how I wanna spend my birthday.

 I hate being sick.

Especially when I go from feeling better to feeling worse.

On top of that, I have classes tomorrow. Which I have to go to cos I have finals coming up in a few weeks. And cos I've missed a lot of days from Tai Chi and Government.

And I had a paper due Tuesday for English, but (not only am i sick) I lost my paper. So I'm probably getting a zero for it.

Fuck.

That doesn't help me with the fact that I feel like shit. Seriously, I feel like I'm dying.

My throat is dry all day, I've coughed so much that I've ripped my throat and taste/cough up blood (this always happened when I get really sick), I'm burning up, I'm freezing, my head feels like a heavy metal band is inside it and my chest feels like it's bruised (it hurts when i cough, talk loud or move).

Seriously, I hate being sick.

But on a bright side, I finally updated Family Portrait (for those who read that fic) and I'm about 2 or 3 chapters away from finishing it. And then I'll decide on if I wanna write prequels to that- they would take place during the TV series, and give me a chance to rewrite episodes to include serious B/G.

And then I'll focus on A Twist in My Story since I'm nowhere near done with that one. And work on the Somebody Like You series I was talked into (not that I'm complaining). And finally work on a request that [livejournal.com profile] bobbymcg  had made a while back when she was watching season 2 of Buffy.

And then I'll go on to work on fanfics for Merlin (maybe...still deciding), Repo! and Batman (my one true love).

Plus I'll work on some more fanvids.

Maybe get some serious writing done on the novel I've been working on for about year now.

On another note, I signed up for this year's [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles . It's my first time doing it and I've signed up for 3 days, but I'm feeling like I can do this. Otherwise I wouldn't have signed up for 3 days.

So I'll be thinking about ideas for that specifically.

And I turn 19 in 2 days. Which I'll probably be sick for.

Damn it.

And my great-grandpa flies in from Seattle on my birthday to spend Easter with us. So I'm excited cos we don't get to see him nearly enough, considering we're the only family members who live in Texas. Me, my brother and my parents that is. And I getta go to NASA with my mom, grandparents and great-grandpa.

Which is exciting cos I haven't been to NASA since I was in 1st grade- which was 13 years ago.

And Doctor Who starts up Saturday.

Is it weird that I'm more excited fro Doctor Who to return than I am about turning 19?

 There's really not much to talk about, except that my dad went downtown to take more tests and he's now waiting for the results. The cardiologist said that what happened might have been just a freak thing of nature...a fluke. The tests he did came back fine and the results that we're waiting for are from the ultrasound that cardiologist did on his heart. So I'm hoping that this was just a weird thing that happened -crosses fingers-

Other than that, I'm currently trying to get over this writer's block that has been stalking me for a week. And I'm really digging Tai Chi...I mean, I'm gonna go do outside of school once this semester is over (which means the next 48 moves I learn involve a sword...-grins-).

Speaking of school, I have to go register for classes to take over the summer tomorrow. Why am I deciding to take on school during the summer break? One- to catch up on Government (one more semester), History (2 semesters behind...I know, weird cos I'm a History major) and French (2 semesters behind since I need 2 years of a foreign language); and Two- I kinda wanna graduate earlier. I may be crazy, but oh well -shrugs-
