I am growing to love this class. Even though I am not going to go into a career in acting, I find that much of the stuff we work on, such as being confident in front of others and being in the moment, will be beneficial in all areas of life. It somewhat saddened me that we received the directions for our final project today. Though Fabio said that we have "all the time in the world" to work on it, it still made me realize the class is slowly drawing to a close. Therefore, I want to take advantage of all the advice I am given and the friendships that I am making in the coming weeks.


class today was fun, it was nice to hear that all that weve been working on all semester is starting to pay off! im a little nervous about our scenes that we have to do, but im sure it will all be just fine! i hope everybody had a great spring break! i had the flu, sinus infection, and still have a double ear infection lol so mine was okay minus all that! i wish we didnt have school this week bc i think its dumb to go back to school for four days then back home again! oh well i guess! see u all on thursday :)

Spring Break

I hope everyone enjoyed their spring break as well. However, I found it pretty entertaining that some people were practically still on spring break with yesterday being St. Patrick's Day and all. There were so many people at the bars during the day as if there were no class that day. Oh well we all need a fun day:)

Habitat Build

I spent my spring break in Columbus Georgia building a house for Habitat for Humanity. There were ten schools there building ten houses in a week. It was a fun experience. The contractors that where assigned to the houses were also volunteers and usually they were really helpful. Our contractors were not so helpful though and they didn't seem to care about the build. They normally build big expensive houses and were not too concerned with the quality of the house we were building for a low income family. It made some of us mad that they would let the house be built in an unprofessional manner. I thought it was interesting that these people who volunteered their time where not willing to actually help. They seemed like they just wanted to be there and stand around for tax reasons or something.

Spring Break

I hope everyone had a good break and I'm looking forward to class again today. I went and saw the new movie vantage point over break and I was pretty disappointed. The actors themselves did a nice job portraying their characters, the problem was the production in my opinion. I thought it could have been improved and made for a better story. Instead I became annoyed watching the movie and couldn't wait until it was over.
Today was St. Patrick's Day. I think it's funny how many people actually wear green, just to participate in the holiday traditions. Maybe they're actually scared that they'll get pinched!

Spring Break

So i think they need to change the name of spring break. How many people go to leave for spring break and when they walk outside they walk into a blizzard!!! Also it is kinda hard to have spring break, come back for four days, then go home for easter, and come back for another four day week. I know it sounds odd, but I would rather wait another week and have spring break during the weekend of easter and end up getting out of school early. But hey what do I know, I'm just like everyone else, we all think we have the solution to everything.
