Here's to the future...

CYOF tomorrow. Its going to be a different story setting, I got tired of the one its on now. I wish more people read this page, it might work a little better. Hey, you know what might be a good idea? Starting a whole new blog for this thing. Yeah, I'll do that. I'll post a notification some time this week whenever I'm not too worn out from work to actually want to do it.

I'd like to talk about what I really want to do with my life. Right now I'm stuck working for Uncle Sam under contract for two more years but when I get out I really want to go to film school. I've saved up quite a bit and I think the government will pay for at least part of my schooling but I'm still not sure about the whole thing.
It wouldn't get me a great job but if I could learn how to use a camera I could at least start off working at a local TV show or something. Anything has to be better than pushing boxes all day, which is what I do now. Or factory work, or flipping burgers, or any other soul crushing mid-pay job.
My dreams will probably get crushed and I'll end up cold and starving in an alleyway, but at least I'll know that I tried.
I said yesterday on my other blog that sometimes movies let me down but then I re-watch Army of Darkness or Amelie or Eraserhead and I remember why I love film so much and why I really can't wait to try and make my own.
This spring when I go home on leave I'm going to buy a cheap wal-mart camera and maybe try to make an actual short film or just fool around and have fun with it. Either way it should be fun and I'll probably post it here. Film schools really need to see what you can do and I'm actually excited to see myself!

Oh and one last thing.
In case you were wondering what I look like, heres a thing I made with my photo camera that also has an actual crappy motion camera on it. click this link!: Hi Internet!

Well, it's good to know that my expectations in life aren't unfounded.
