Something that everyone related to is work. More specifically, too much work. This may sound rather exaggerated, but I am drowning in work. Most of it may be brought on, for I have procrastinated enough to dig my own grave. Either way, I genuinely feel like I have no time for myself - nor my blog. I'm positive I may have lost a few - dozen - readers in the past year, but I can't bring myself to blame them. When is the last time I posted a proper, well-composed post? Feels like a hundred years ago, and may as well be the case.
Fortunately, my IB readers must understand my pain. For the others, rest assured - I will be making an honest attempt to finish all my work so that I will have time to dedicate to this blog,
1. Party so hard, you get grounded.
2. Party so hard, you get exhausted.
3. Procrastinate so bad, all your summer work begins to stress you out. (And then end up having your trip to France cancelled.)
4. Not work out during the year, so you end up not having a summer-ready body.
I just wanted to let you guys know that I got into the summer school program for high school students at NYU Tisch. As you know (or don't, whatever, you're gonna know now), NYU is my dream school (sigh) and so I am super excited about this. It's a five week course that basically schools us on filmmaking techniques as well as, as I am most looking forward to, FCP technicalities. I'm withholding the dates for security reasons (That makes me feel so cool.) but feel free to message me to find out.
Also, I'm really excited about spending five weeks in a legit NYU dorm. My obsession with NYU seems unhealthy to me, but I am assuming that there are millions of students out there who idolise various universities themselves, and I'm taking comfort in that assumption.
I dream about NYU. Genuinely dream about it, for hours and hours, when I'm asleep. When I'm awake? I stalk the website. I watch NYU-student produced short films on youtube. I do a ton of research, and then when I can't find any more information, i reread all my research, with happy, *I'm in love with this school* sighs. Hearts floating up above my head and everything. It's rather corny, if you ask me.
I can't wait to apply to NYU for real.
Until then, I have my summer school to look forward to!
P.s. Anyone else going to be in New York in summer?
P.p.s. What is everyone doing for summer? Summer school, internships? I'd love to know!
