First Blog

Day 3 of the consecutive snow days we've had here in Boone County (KY). It's been pretty nice...just doing nothing -watching movies, writing/reading scripts, etc. And the weather has even closed the library, and I still got paid.
I've been listening to a lot of surf music lately. I was drawn into it from hearing it on the Pulp Fiction soundtrack and since then I've been searching myspace for good surf rock. I found all these awesome bands from Europe...which sucks because most don't have anything on itunes and they're too small-time to be on any free download sites.
That brings me to my next subject...I want to write a script so bad. The surf music inspires me to do some kind of Tarantino-esque thing. I don't know what I'm doing yet, but I have to force myself to sit down and start something. Starting is the hardest part...once I get past that, it's all good. The thought of writing an entire script used to overwhelme me but now I'm almost to the point of writing one so I guess you could call that progress? Nah, I guess not. But I'm starting one tomorrow.
I've been thinking a lot about colleges too. Brooklyn or Full Sail, those are my two main prospects. Full Sail seems awesome -get it over with in 2 years (I still get a bachelors degree, its just more hours a week. e.g. typical 16-18 but full sail is 36-40). I could handle its though. It's spending all day studying something I The great thing about Full Sail is that you need nothing but money to get in (besides a high school diploma). They don't look at test scores or even transcript grades. And its nationally recognized for being a great film school.
Brooklyn is a typical 4-year college. The fact that its in NYC makes it a strong contender. I don't know too much about it...yet...
I'll be visiting both eventually (NYC for spring break, and Full Sail in Orlando during the summer break).

I guess that's it,
