The man who taught me all I know about micro-economics,
and the person who introduced me to Trader Joe’s brand; vacuum fried banana chips.
Here’s to you, Nejem—my life is forever touched.

And now, back to work; News of what’s breaking my back, as soon as I have time.
It’s my second semester of my sophomore year at Emerson!
These first weeks always seem like more stress then their worth, but only in the moment.
Here’s a quick list of things I’m working on, or plan to work on…
- Film shoots: I’ve focused on TV last semester, but I really am looking to get experience on sets this spring—I’ve applied to an NBS narrative and am waiting to hear back—more on that later. But for class, I will also be shooting 3 short films or documentaries—For that I am very much excited.
- Scripts: Frames Per Second is having submissions. I’m looking to revise my fall semester final project in Writing for the Short Subject and get it in before Thursday. I’m also attending weekly meetings for SPEC, the screenwriting group on-campus.
- RA App: This is a big hope of mine. I would love to be an RA next semester, so I’m prepping as much as I can for a good interview. Little known fact: Mama Shoes used to coordinate her college’s RA screening process.
(CUT TO: ROCKY STYLE MONTAGE)
- TV: Its in my veins now; Though I cut back on applications, I’m still hoping to be a part of some great shows. HIghest hopes are for the TD circuit on Speechless, Audio team on Closing Time, and editing for The Uplink.
- Producing: Though not for this semester, I want to start exploring how to bring a food-network style conception into fruition.
- An Evening Cup of Cocoa: I had such a good time co-producing a show with my good friends for Emerson’s wecb.fm. We hope to bring it back for a second run.
- Editing: I’m raising money now to try and subscribe to Lynda.com. I’d really love to boost my editing skills for next semester when I finally jump into Post classes.
Looking at my list, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed—
Time for coffee.
And I’m happy.
Two of my classes for the fall I was legitimately excited about. Going into production and possibly advertising, Media Criticism and Theory has my interest from its name alone. And Writing for the Short Subject has me excited because of my previous positive experience with a college level creative writing professor (Aaron Block, for the curious).
My other two classes were where things got rough. Upperclassmen get first dibs on scheduling, so I ended up with filler gen-eds that didn’t really peak my interest. “Images of the Disabled” was one of them. The subject matter itself really wasn’t a problem (though, admittedly there were other classes I wanted to fill that requirement)— the scheduling, however, was balls: a 4 hour nighttime monday marathon.
This summer I’ve been trying my best to read more; for way too long I ‘ve given books too little of my time. That’s why my second issue came in an 8 am Literature class. Though I was and still am very excited to take my first Lit class at Emerson, I am far from a morning person (its 2:03). I was so glad to switch out of it. My last 8 am was proof positive they are not for me. Even though my class was hosted by a pretty great professor (Pucca, if interested), as great as he was, I know I could’ve gotten more out of lectures if they were at better times.
My new gen-eds couldn’t be more perfect. A lecture on climate change, and a class of economics both taught by professors praised for their passionate attitude.
I’m very excited. This semester is looking excellent on many levels.
Just have to sell those books now…
