Nerd status has risen to a whole new level - not only did I stay up until 2am watching tv, but I stayed up watching “Star Trek: Secrets of the Universe” on the H2 (History channel #2?) which was all about the science behind Star Trek (the new ones). I’ll admit, I watched it because there were scenes from Into Darkness in it… but I was also pretty darn interested in trying to wrap my head around the science and physics and all that jazz that would make something like Star Trek possible. My brain hurt when I went to bed though; that stuff is intense.
I cry a little bit on the inside when I think of all the movies and television shows that I want to watch right now. It’s like this gigantic list that just keeps growing and growing. *cries* Why is there not more time in a day?! (Well, it would probably help if I didn’t sleep til roughly 2pm every day cause I get 12 hours of sleep without trying… but then there’s all the school work and internship stuff that needs completing).
Which brings me to my NEXT THING …*drumroll* I got an internship for the summer! It’s an online/virtual one, which helps things despite my everlasting dream to not be stuck here in the suburbs, but it’ll work. My program director is working with me to let this internship fill my graduation requirement so I can graduate this December instead of making it a full 6 years of college and having to graduate next spring. Oyyyyy. So it’s going to be a “field experience” instead of “Co-op” or something. Thank god my program director understands that I never do anything the normal way and that I’m a major pain in the ass about everything… and he’s willing to help. I’m not entirely sure what else I’ll have to do (I think he said a freelance project or using my work with my school’s fashion magazine as “experience”) but yeah. Anywho, it’s an Editorial Internship with Limerence Magazine, an online magazine that covers music, film, and literature… and some other things but mostly those three. They review mostly indie media, but it includes a bit of mainstream as well. Basically, I get to watch movies (since I will be a Film Columnist) and review them all summer haha! I’ll also be helping edit other articles and pitching article ideas ~ the works. It’s unpaid, but I don’t even care. It’s experience. It’s going towards my graduate requirement. It’s doing what I love: writing and watching movies. My mom is all like “Don’t you want to go out and make relationships with people?” and my dad’s all like “You need to get out of the house and join the living”… Nope. Nope to both. I understand where my mom is coming from with her statements, but my dad is just being an asshole and trying to dictate how I live. THIS is just fine with me. It’s like freelancing. Freelance writers don’t “go out into the world;” they do their shit from home. Agggh, nevermind. YAY INTERNSHIP!
