So, I know this old news to almost everyone who knows me, like even a little bit, but I love the Decemberists. I feel like I like them more today than other days. Shelby and I are seeing them in Montana in like three or four weeks. Also I am seeing them this summer, on my birthday in fact.

I showed my rough cut to my teacher today, I got some good feedback. It was so nerve racking, but now I don't have a solid deadline again for like 3 weeks, which mean I can calm down a little. But I might end up having to re shoot a scene or two. Also I need to re record some audio. I thought I was done with APS for the quarter, how wrong I was!!

I feel like I spend more time in the MML than I do at my house.

Dumb dumb dumb.

I am procrastinating work right now.


The Office and 30Rock are on in a couple hours. That is cool!

Terror Alert Level Orangish Red.

I feel like whenever I go to my Mom's place I actually hear about whats happening in the world. In Olympia I don't read the paper or watch the news. In all actuality I really just don't care about whats happening in the world. The only reason I would want to be kept up on current events would be to better understand South Park jokes. But anyways, whenever I stay at my Mom's I always watch hours of news (Conservative news at that, cause my mom decided she is a conservative now). And what does hours of news breed? Irrational fears! Last time I visited I was soooo worried about hyperinflation. Now I'm worried about a billion people dying because of the Swine Flu.

Why me and Shelby are the same person

So I was playing the animal guessing game with my younger sister today and it is important to keep in mind that she has no prior knowledge about any of the guess the animal games played in the past amongst myself and college friends. So she was asking questions and basically only knows that it is a mammal that doesn't live in America and is a few feet big.

She asks me "Is it a monkey?"

I say "Uhh, kind of"

She quickly, without hesitation responds "Oh a Lemur?"

I love my sister

Tisk Tisk Tisk.

It is evident by my last few blog posts that the phone update thing on Blogger has a lot of bugs to work out. I give it a D.
nt out that I don't have a key pad and am hella T9ing this shit.
So I think blogger wants to be more like twitter, cause now apparently you can update your blog from your phone. Although I think this function is a lit

Done with my produc for my proj

I started and finished shooting the Pine Cone yesterday. It was one of the most intense things I've ever done. Of course it wouldn't have been possible without so many amazing people.

I have been neglecting important aspects of my life for the last week due to the stress of preparing for the shoot, so hopefully I can take the next couple days to get my life back to order.

I have lots of thoughts about production and hopefully in the next week I will have clips posted to my production blog.

So as many of you are aware yesterday was Easter. It was kind of weird not being able to go home and spend it with my family. My mom sent me an Easter basket, which is like the coolest thing ever. I actually got three packages in the mail this last week. I mean two were from, but it was still exciting.

I get to drink coffee again. It is actually kind of weird, because I don't need it anymore, I think about it less. When I first stopped drinking it a mere 47 days ago I thought about it like every hour or so, many aspects of my life changed because coffee and caffeine were no longer apart of my routine. Today for example I got up and left my house and was running around doing stuff for like 4 hours because I got coffee. Its like now I have to remember to drink it, opposed to it being an integral part of my life. Meh, whatever, I imagine things will get back to normal as soon my schedule and life gets back to normal.

I saw Adventure Land and Observe and Report recently, I enjoyed both very much. This week I want to see Crank 2: High Voltage and Wendy and Lucy. Movies movies, I like movies. Sometimes I make movies. Movies movies movies.

ps. The Decemberists are playing a show in Redmond on my 21st birthday. Boo yah!

The sun is shinning! I am so excited about this. I know this is like dumb to say because everyone loves the sun and is excited about its tendancy to shine in the spring, but still, fuck yeah!

Yesterday Operation: Not Having a Very Good Time, or O:NHVGT had our first event. We went to Snoqulamie Falls and North Bend to eat at the diner in the tv show Twin Peaks. It was a lot of fun. I got a nose bleed from the altitude I assume, that was kind of weird. 

On the way back I put on this mix I made for Charlie last Spring of my favorite music to listen to when it is sunny. Like half of the music was silly things I really liked when I was 12-15 years old, but the other half was more DIY music that I was into last Spring. Listening to it made me miss music. I don't know whats been happening recently in my life, but I just haven't been interested in going to shows. Most of my friends in Olympia aren't neccessarily into the same music I am, so it would make sense that I wouldn't go to shows with them, but it didn't stop me Freshmen or Sophomore year. Ugh, well now thats it sunny again I want to get back into shows starting with Defiance, Ohio next week. 

Oh, I'm filming my movie in like 5 days and that scares me sooo much I want to scream.

So I get in these funks where I don't blog for a long time because nothing in my life is particularly blog worthy. And so then get all weird because I haven't blogged in awhile so I feel like I can't just write something dumb, cause I could have been writing dumb things all along. But I refuse to let that stop me this time!!

Spring break was great and included such wonderful things like:
Jeremiah Center
Hear Me Out
Digital Cable

I have class today which is always something I enjoy.

uhh... Punk Rock!
