Today I realized I have a month until graduation. I am neither excited nor upset. It’s something that’s been creeping up on me, but I’ve known all along. I’m getting to the point that I can accept change a lot better than I used to be able to. I’m also stressing out less about planning things. Both good.
The other night over $1 drafts at 149, Marie and Meg told me about a great plan they have for this May: we are going on a trip up north to Michigan. We will spend a few days in Charlevoix, visit Mackinaw Island, and see the dunes at Sleeping Bear. I’m so excited.
This past weekend, Meredith catered an event in Toledo for the Toledo Arts Commission, and a few of us who had waitressing experience (this does not include me, but I did go) went to help out at the event. It was at a cool space downtown Toledo, and it was very crowded. We worked very hard all night, but the hard work payed off for a successful event, and it was a lot of fun. Not that I want to make a career out of it, but I could handle being a caterer. I also met a member of the Toledo Filmmakers group, who also is a tatoo artist. Networking? Yes, plz.
Steve built a pretty crafty 35mm adapter for his HD camera, and we’ve been shooting with it. I shot my Film 3 final project using it; I think it looks really nice. And, well, it looks almost like film, so, I like it. When I play with it, I’ve been knocking it slightly out of focus, and it looks like Super8. Here is test footage from that:
I saw Funny Games last weekend. While I was totally disgusted with myself, I really enjoyed it. Also, Michael Pitt? Yes, plz.
