I exhute froshie tendencies on a friday night..

No.. not freshman tendencies really.. because the freshman this year are really gutsy and do stuff and are loud (all the time as a matter of fact).

Anyway, to the point.

So I've had a hard past few weeks, so I basically shut myself in my room tonight..
First I worked out for awhile, and then I ate my fair share of junk food (oh so pathetic, and oh so attractive. don't you deny it) Then I moved onto my beloved laptop.
I've been on my computer for hours... I honestly can't remember the last time i did this. By this i mean being able to be on the internet for an extended period of time without a purpose. Hasn't been too bad, I mean i caught up on a lot of youtube videos, read blogs, and the like.. It's just strange. Sometimes I just want to make sure that my hobbies like youtube, reading, and even my dance videos don't turn into escapism.

But now that I've mentioned dancing, MY GOSH. I freaking love my dancing with the stars cardio dance video. It's so much fun! It starts with the paso doble then movies into the chacha, samba, and then the jive. I have some other dance videos but i always get bored of them after a few times because they're all made for beginners. I want a challenge! I think I'm going to paroose for some more.. I'm a little over my current hip hop video. Maybe I'll try some bollywood style dancing :-p Or there's always bellydancing! I've wanted to take bellydancing classes forever!

Oh how quickly my attention turns.
I don't have anything else to say i don't think.
hm.. actually i do.

I really enjoyed the movie Burn After Reading. I thought the acting was amazing, the characters in the movie were so well developed, and the cinemotography was cool too. I loved the use of framing in specific shots, and some of the angles, and cuts from scene to scene. (Wow, can you tell that I've been taking more comm classes?)

Oh, also! I just finished fight club! I've already mentioned this on twitter...but i'll say it here anyway. It was SO good. I want to read Choke before it comes out in theaters. I already started The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis.. well, only one chapter in. But I kind of just want to get another book by Chuck Palahniuk. Or maybe start the Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy. I have the huuugeee one with all the different books in the series in it. Oh the choices. What do you guys think? I also have Clockwork orange and a few other books on my shelf here at school.

O.k., It's nearly 2:00 a.m., and I need to get up early so I can do work..
Bahh too much to do.

Blah Blah Blah. Kristen talks to much and needs to stop speaking in the third person

"I greet the world with a smile. HELLO WORLD!"

That was the first line of a monologue I did in this play, Feifers people, in High school.
Ugh, can you freaking imagine anyone actually being like that.

Well.. I can.. I know a few of those... There's a plethora of 'that kind' here at school.
.. there's most likely a ton of those at any Christian college.

I just can't take it when people are all happy and cheery ALL the time. No human being should be capable of or ALLOWED to walk around like one big ball of sunshine 24/7. C'mon get real.

On another note..

Does this ever happen to you?
What always happens is I'll say something (or type something for that matter) making fun of it, but then I'll just start doing it so much, that people most likely think I'm actually talking like that.

For example, my over abundant use of the phrase "yo" and "holler."
... yes... I am THAT white.

Also all those dumb internet sayings (like ftw)

I think I need to regiment my use of sarcasm more..
or maybe people just need to understand my humor better.

... I think I'm going to go with the latter. I'm perfectly happy with my humor.

I love skeezy men

As I may have said before, I am a Tele-counselor for my college. I call prospective students and help them with their decision, and answer any questions they may have about the school i attend.

Last night as I was working, I came to Hilary soandso.. (i forget the last name)

I dial the number. An old man (I'm guessing around 50) answers the phone.
This is what happened:

man: Hello?
me: Hi, My name is Kristen. I'm calling for Gordon College. Is Hilary available?
man: No, but you sound HOTT. What's your name baby?
me: *hangs up*

MY GOSH! How skeezyyyy. The man sounded freaking old too with one of those not so nice raspy smoker voices.

That sure livened up my night.

Someone call the WAAMbulance.

Life really isn't too bad right now. I just tend to be a realist on most subjects.

It's all about balance.. or ranting about it..

I haven't watched any youtube videos in a few days..
I want to, but I just don't have enough free time. My schedule this semester is crazy.

There isn't any moment where I don't have work to do, and I'm used to that by now first semester sophomore year. One of the many differences between this year and last year though is that I have a lot less time free in between classes so, subsequently I need to pick and choose what I do during those "free times" really carefully.

Right now, I have to choose between watching youtube videos, reading fight club, doing homework (which i have an abundance of at the moment..not to mention the 40 chapters of Exodus i haven't started reading that i have a quiz on, on Thursday), watch a movie, or gosh so many other things.

One thing that I feel I'm not doing enough of is watching films. It should be a very regular thing to me as a communications major. I need to be constantly familiar with what is going on in the industry.. all aspects of the industry. I feel like I'm so behind on that. Most film studies majors start making short films and videos, know their favorite director, and things like that long before college. Not to mention submit videos to small competitions, like youtubers tend to do.

This is what i need to be doing! I need to get involved and informed with the career I've apparently decided. I've only just begun to get my feet wet. My feet aren't even close to wet, my toe is hardly dipped in the water. I'm still on the side of the pool debating whether or not to stick my toe in the water. I need to make and dedicate time to practice and experiment with film. When I get inspired, and elaborate on an Idea on paper, I can see it in my mind, and it looks great. Now I just need to become organized and self-disciplined enough to DO IT. To just freaking do it.

I know I can do it. All of these issues are most definitely the worst to be having. There are so many other things going on as well, I'm just not very used to doing this much.
I did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING over the summer!!

I don't think I should do that ever again..

Ideating is a cool word... or is it a cool term?

Lately, whenever I'm bored in class I'll start brainstorming video ideas and such.
In between taking notes of course.

The next video I'm going to make involves a little bit of animation and I'm actually pretty excited about making it(which reminds me.. I have to finish the video before the week is up because my animation program demo runs up soon).

It shouldn't be that hard, I just have to write out a script for myself, and take advantage of my free time so i can focus and get work done so i can make it this weekend :-)

Now off to applied communications and then work!

Waa Waa, Poor Kristen

To be a communications major and to not create out of fear is a complete oxymoron (and just plain dumb).

Guess I'd have to get over it sooner or later...

That blog below really is the definition of adhd.

I'm not emo, I swear.

Really, I'm not..
I just tend to rant on here a bit because I write these towards the end of the day when I've already had hours of classes and tons of homework ahead of me.

And on another random note...
I probably shouldn't have eaten all that candy and the last "chocolate ball" my grandma sent me.
That's right, my grandma sent me "chocolate balls." She even labeled them that.
Oh, Grandma.

On a subject a little less dirty..
When I went in for Tech training for the room I'm TA-ing in, the tech teacher guy totally judged me based on my pink notebook. After he went over everything with me he said, "are you one of those.. pink.. girls?" Uhh excuse me? Just the way he said it rubbed me the wrong way.

But now I must go to bed. 8 a.m. class tomorrow, yay!
I wish i could supply you guys with funnier annecdotes. I swear I have tons of awkard stories to tell. I get myself into the stupidest situations that could be completely avoided if i just thought before i spoke.. or better yet, just thought a little quicker. As a matter of fact one very recent story comes to mind, but that can be left for another day (curiousity killed the cat).

... Always leave 'em wanting more as my mother says. Good night :-)

(I apolagize for the weirdness level of this blog, It's late, and I'm tired)

Oh gosh.

What on earth have i gotten myself into?

I have (at the most) 3 hours free tomorrow from 9:15 a.m. until 9:00 p.m... wherein I'll have to be doing homework. Crap, eating too.

Am I going to be able to keep this up? I hope I will be able to because at this point I'm completely committed to everything that is taking up so much of my time.

All I can do at this point is pray, and try my best.
Here goes. BRING IT ON!
