Well I'm sitting in the EVVY Office again, and all seems well. Except that I am writign in my weblog when I have tons of things I should be doing instead. Such is life. It's going to start getting very very busy, very very quickly. Today I basically onlyy had 3 hours of free time from 8am to 10pm.
So much for academia.
Such is the way it should be at a school like Emerson. I'm working on producing my film two stuff, and I just did a rough budget the other day, and realized I'm probably going to be spending over $500 dollars on these two short films.... and I'm already trying to do the cheap route! One major way that we could get costs down would be to find someone with a van/suv or truck witha cap so that we don't have to rent a car. Those costs alone are around 400 dollars of the total budget... About 1/4th!
Other than that, things seem to be going pretty well. This is what's on my plate in the near future.
Direct Nightly News Show A (Show time + one meeting per week)
Segment Producing Speechless (Includes finding EDITORS, WHICH IS GETTING HARDER! + two meetings per week)

Hosting "The News" as a Weatherman (One Show Taping a Week)

That's a pretty complete list, but it doesn't count all the e-mails and things I have to deal with (Like sleeping, eating, personal hygene, etc)
I'm crazy I guess. But as I've told others--I'm not paying 35,000 plus dollars to sit around hanging out with friends. I can do that for free!
