The other side of the finish line.

Not the life finish line, just the semester one.

I have finally finished this crazy, hectic, friend/family filled, secluded, very looong semester. And those are just a few words to describe it. I feel ecstatic, but at the same time a little sad. Going home is always a rough transition, and it will mean going back to a home where I have to live with different rules, schedules, and expectations. Like any of the transition periods, it will feel like I'm there forever, but will fly by in a blink. I will definitely miss everyone in Chi a ton, but hopefully I'll be able to clear my head and come back ready to work for second semester.

That is all I have to say for now, I have a room that has been screaming to be cleaned for weeks, and several last minute errands to run before I hit up the STL. BUT! I refuse to let this blog die, so I will be back soon (ish).

Cheese and Tunnels.

I had grilled cheese for lunch today.
I had grilled cheese for dinner last night.
There is just something about grilled cheese and tomato soup that remind me of home. And lately, that is the only place I have truly wanted to be. But! Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I CAN'T WAIT!

Although anxious for a break, it seems as though I'm at the end of a dark, mile long tunnel that is so often prevalent in film school. I have turned in my two documentaries for my film classes, and even though I have some other projects due before the end of the semester, they seem they are going to be much easier to manage.

Speaking of projects... I am currently producing a musical! The process has been CRAZY thus far, but we have managed to nail down a rather large cast and crew as well as our first location. We move into production Friday morning! I'm very nervous about the adventure to completion, but everyone on board is very excited about it, so I think their enthusiasm will help me see things through to the end.

Okay, that's all for now. I think this will suffice for a second blog entry.

Thought of the day: God was the original creator of sound effects. It is incredibly difficult to record sounds and make them sound like the original. Good job, God :)

Here it is. My very first blog entry.

I'm not going to lie, I'm not really sure how these work yet. But in reading a certain other's (thanks, Taylor :) ), I've decided it would be nice to document all of the beautiful things in my life. Journaling is great for my private thoughts, but maybe this will be something I come to for encouragement and sharing with others.

I promise to be truthful, but I may begin to wonder through some things. Want to join me?

Adventure #1: Figuring out exactly how to customize. Oh, what a great journey I'm sure it will be!
