How goes it?

Post by Rebellious Backbencher on Sat Nov 28, 2009 9:26 pm

Generally, I mean.
It's been ages since I caught up with what you're all doing with your lives, what's going on? How's Uni treating you? What about that new house or job? You still getting fired into that slightly chubby gal every weekend? Back in the day I knew the broad strokes of how everyone was spending their time.
For my part, my final year at school's turned out to be a waste of time, what with appeals meaning I have what I need for uni. To get my EMA I have to sign in every period so I'm there all the time, bored out my tits, and being deputy head boy means it's not at all convenient to up and leave at Christmas. Excitingly, I have a small suspicion I might be going a bit mental - my mood's changeable as shit, and I swear when I woke up a few days ago I thought I was someone completely different for a couple of minutes. Let's see how that turns out.

Good idea groovy.
I'm now nearing the end of my first semester of my film course and so far it's been pretty damn exciting! I've got to know people who love film just as much as me and I've learnt loads in the process. I'm still going out with the same girlfriend and am still just as happy with that relationship.

Currently I'm working on my end of semester film production. I've written a script which was chosen as one of those to be realized and I've been appointed director of it. Will start working with the actors next week, prepping them for the production itself. Terribly exciting! My script has become rather well thought of among the teachers and as a result I've managed to secure the best producer and light technician at the school. We're working on a budget comprised (at this point in time) entirely of our own funds, 3000 approx. The shoot lasts from next friday to sunday and I am losing loads of sleep wondering if I'll manage to do a good enough job. Our entire staff is working free, our money being spent on hiring a top of the line RED camera, professional lighting and sound equipment.

Come this time next week I'll be a nervous wreck! Can't wait for the holidays starting the 17th. Will be reviving my Xbox Live account for the month and relaxing.

Ahh, that sounds crazy cool. I'm surprised you can find anyone who loves film as much as you! I hope uni keeps going well and if it's possible to show us the fruits of your labours, please do.

im actually doing well, i just achieved around 4 qualifications/awards from my, well i suppose its sort of a college, which the mayor of stafford was kind enough to give me, full of bullshit afterwards though, and she didnt really seem to like me pressing her for her thoughts on the Mp's expenses scandal, my work is going alright, spending 8 and a half hours either lifting xmas tree's over my shoulder or going on delivery round wolverhampton, took us an hour and a half to get through dudley yesterday, fuck. not sure of my chances of landing a permanent job, but if not then im getting a new one in the new year, and hopefully im going to try to get my drivers, and then forklift license tests. EMA are screwing me over after i got a flex account with nationwide, iv got around 5 months of EMA waiting to go in but it turns out i may need to submit another shit load of paper work, so im hoping to get that done withing 3 weeks, so yeah my life is not exactly interesting right now.

It's okay, I guess.
I pretty much crashed out of Uni and after four years of attendance walked away with just a Diploma and a resolve to never work in the games industry or in any sort of job built primarily around computers.
Since I've been in some form of full time education for 17 years I thought I'd just take a break from it all and just do nothing, hoping that in some way I might find a bearing. Well, it's been an interesting 6 months, but now the money has all gone and now I'm stuck in the soulless cycle of perpetual job hunting just to keep a roof over my head, which is always nice.
Still have no idea what I want to do with my life and probably never will. I change my mind far too often, so I'm probably just going to be one of these people who just bounce from job and location to job and location and hope something magnificent happens along the way.
So aside from that I'd say my life has been pretty dull. The end of this the year of our fraud 2009 has had too little going on for my liking, noteworthy events are few and far between. I've resigned myself to the fact that the new approaching decade should be the time for change. I'm rapidly approaching 23 and already feel like what could have been some damn good years here in Lincoln have been wasted.
So for the first time in my life, new decade resolutions. Get a job and regain financial independence, start eating more than one meal a day and get my weight back up, start getting into shape more. get a lot more sex and actually finish a music track instead of getting bored halfway way and abandoning my synth in favour of clicking refresh on Facebook.

Really bored of life at the moment.

Apart from Business studies and some aspects of Economics, I've completely switched off from my studies. I only turn up to get EMA signatures really. The non stop party from the summer has finally came to a stand still and weekends are pretty much wasted.

Lost a woman I spent a while trying to capture in a drunken rage about the loss of my key not so long ago. My mates claim it to be legendary, I don't remember it. (She cried) I also decided to take the advice of many a chav and got a hair cut.

So I sit around reading and tending my farm on Facebook.

Smile I hope I keep avoiding that farm thing!

Not much changed over the last year. Still doing the same job, though had a chat with my boss about a pay raise, and he gave me the option to work on commission basis which will be a lot better as can earn more. Moving into a new flat with the missus on the 18th Dec, so visiting Ikea next week for bed and sofa, and the pet shop for some goldfish. And this week I have a week off work to study for an exam on Friday, and duly spent the whole day playing Fifa and GH5 Evil or Very Mad

A lot has happened lately. Things sort of got good again for a while, then went shit, now are decent again. Been a weird few months though. Just trying to discover who I am a little more and act upon that, etc.

I've sort of been forced to look at what I value in life and stuff. Found out a lot of strange stuff last few months that I had no idea about, and I guess I've had to shift perspective!

Moved in to my bachelor pad yesterday. It's so fucking nice, it's just perfect really. Will post pics when I get the internets.

Edit: As my PS2 slim and all my games were unpacked we passed the bong around and had a Soul Caliber II 'winner stays on' sesh last night.
It was fun until my bro's g/f found out that if she kept pressing circle with one of the female characters that she could win pretty easily and continued to rely on it.

Sweet stories guys!

Im living the life of a student, drinking too much, 4 hours sleep, lecture/screening, a little nap, perhaps some L4D2 fun-ness, a bit of reading, then depending on the night before, a few drinks, or a cup of hot chocolate and a film. Its good.

I go home on the 17th December for 3 weeks. I look forward to my Grans cooking.

I'm literally about to die of stress right now! After 5 days of coaching the actors we suddenly lost our location - two days before we start filming! Luckily we managed to procure an alternative, but I'm having trouble sleeping... but directing is an amazingly rewarding job!
