I Want What I Want, Not What They Want

‘m fairly confident that I’m not going to be getting a bunch of As or anything this semester. I’m too focused on other things to concentrate a whole lot on school. Normally, when a student...

Long Time No Speak… Time For A Bit Of Catchup

Hello everyone! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here. Actually, it’s the first time since I returned from Vietnam. This is because I’m insanely busy. Here’s a bit of an update, and a...

In It For the Long Haul: College Doesn’t Always Teach You Things…

Every day I think about my school debt, I get a little more pissed inside. The fact that I’ll be paying off a rather large 5-figure number for about 10 years of my adult life for something that I honestly don’t feel benefited me nearly enough simply invigorates me. Why do I have to go to college for this again? Granted, I likely adapted to some skills that were suggested by my education, and I do often find myself using some skills that were learned from class projects again and again. But how much of this was unattainable without schooling?

The Day I Helped Film A Western!

I shouldn’t have stayed up until almost 4:00am when I knew I had to meet at the school at 8:40am. When we all did end up meeting at the school, the weather was horrible. There was 30mph winds, and we actually drove the entire way to Muskegon through snow and tiny hail. It wasn’t looking good for being able to pull off a video taking place in the ol’ west.

What School “Could” Do For Me – The Story Of A Film Major

As a film major in college, I rarely think about what my future could be like, as far as finding a job later. The concept of “finding a job” really doesn’t appeal to me much, since I figure I’d rather create something than create somebody else’s stuff. Bottom line though, is that I’m going to have to suck it up, and just do it.

College Feels Like A Waste… Of Life.

No seriously though. I believe, that school has mostly been a complete waste of time and money. The educational system in this country seems more oriented into getting money than anything else. I thought it was educating young minds and expanding the overall abilities of young people. Looks more like educating themselves to expand their wallets to me…

Where am I going? Where have I been?

I often find myself wondering if my current path is the right one. A most students will experience in college, the long nights of writing papers and cramming for tests can really take a toll on your health, confidence, energy, stamina, and most importantly: Your drive to succeed. I find myself struggling to stick with it a lot lately, and I know it’s just because of one unavoidable fact: The future is so unknown.

Long Time No See

I’ve just completed arguably the most writing piece I have ever done, and I feel pretty good about that. Normally, when I write a short little story or whatever I comes naturally and I can, for the most part, breeze right through it with only minor setbacks. This time, however, it was completely different. There was a much greater attention paid to details, story, and flow then I’ve ever paid before…
