Different shades of mundane

So...hi! I've been meaning to update for awhile and finally got around to it. Where to start? Well, let's see...I guess the school being on strike worked in my favour because there was no time for finals, so they were generous in grading the work I had done, and I finished the term with straight As in all but one of my classes (I got a B in the other one). I feel pretty proud about that. It was also a surprise when my Film Studies professor suggested that I submit my term paper to the annual essay competition. I didn't win, but I didn't expect to. It's just nice to know that he thought it was good enough that it deserved recognition. Another one of my professors was one of the judges and encouraged me to keep writing because I have a great "clarity of vision," in her words. So that's something to print out and read when I'm feeling down. Unfortunately there are only two film classes offered or I would take more. So I am looking in to transferring to UVIC after second year (it's too late for this year), which is probably where I should have gone all along anyway.

After that, I decided the best thing to do would be to put my stuff in storage and come home for the summer rather than stay in my overpriced dump of an apartment. Staying at my mom's place is free, but it may be at the expense of my sanity. I got home a week ago and it was only about an hour before my brother started in about wanting me to get my license and help him remodel the kitchen! It's like, let me unpack first, okay? I did have some of my own projects I wanted to do, which I'm hoping I can get to this summer. So those mixes and vids are coming (in between job hunts), and I'll be posting more than once every couple months. I know I keep saying that, but it's for real this time!

Here, have a picture of my dog! Just because everything's better with a puggle. :)

Congrats on the great marks and the Film Studies! If you're looking at continuing in a film direction, might one of the mainland universities offer more, with all the filming going on over there?
Thanks! And yeah, it probably makes more sense to go to Vancouver, but I don't know if I'm going to go into film or not. I surprised myself with how good I was at it.
Hey there! Glad to see you back on here!

That's great that you're excelling at school!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ugh...family!
