Summer School Ends & Memory Almost Full

Summer school has officially wrapped and once again I'm feeling great about what I did and worse about what I didn't. It's in the past now though and I'm ready to move forward. 

More than ever I feel motivated for my final year.  I've had this anxious feeling before, but this is actually the beginning of the end. To be fair, I really don't have anything to say here that I haven't said before . . . or at least I'm not in the mood to write myself a pep-talk. 

I'm tired of not caring about my classes, and I'm tired of questioning all of the things that I don't like doing as an excuse not to do them. I have one last year, and with a bit of extra effort I know it's going to be great.

I went out and bought Paul McCartney's Memory Almost Full today which seems relevant given my current thoughts about school again. I'll never tire of learning, and even if for some odd reason I did how could a person ever really stop? I think I'm ready to start rethinking some things, preparing myself, and amp myself up about university one more time. Things are going to change again. For now it's time to celebrate, relax, and maybe just Dance Tonight:

Scary Vid. In 200 we had to do a portrait of a friend- I chose my buddy tyler, he played in a band so I thought I could do some good things. The opening sequence the camera flows through the house filled with distant sound until it goes to the basement to reveal tyler playing the drum to NOFX's Bob. 3 years later I am asked to do a character study. My idea was to do another video on tyler but the character study be about a transforming filmmaker. Basically we were gonna make fun of how the 200 project was so terrible. But when we sat down a brainstormed we came up with more jokes at tyler's expense and came to the sad realization nothing had changed except he had gotten older. So the new tyler portrait contained a Mandolin version of Bob over top of the making of tea process to reveal tyler sitting by a fireplace with tea playing and singing the song we hear. It was one of the best inside jokes in my career. No one in class laughed but everyone who knows tyler looses it at the project.
