Guys, college is pretty great.
Seriously, it's pretty great.
Tomorrow is the first day of classes. Oddly enough, I'm actually pretty excited. All of the classes I'm taking are pretty interesting. Currently I'm enrolled in Intro to International Relations, Astronomy, French, and a Medieval Literature Freshman Writing Seminar. I'm looking forward to them.
BUT WAIT. I lied. I'm taking one more course. I'm so excited about it that every time I think about it, I squeal like a little girl. An hour ago, I was given special permission to take a 300 level FILM-MAKING course. Yes, you heard me! A junior-level course on cinematography. Before today, I was disappointed because while my classes all seemed somewhat interesting, there was no class that I was seriously interested in. The rest of the courses I have are just to fulfill degree requirements. This film course is just because I want to. A group of us also took a tour of the performing arts center where all the classes are held and the film studios are awesome!
I'm a little nervous because I think I'm not qualified enough to take this course, but the directors of the program assured me there's nothing to worry about. I'll talk to the instructor tomorrow and see what he thinks. But right now, I feel as if my dream is coming true. I thought I'd have to wait another year before I could start to take some film courses, but it turns out that I can take them now.
I'm sorry for constantly pestering you guys about my passion for film and my dream of becoming a filmmaker, but it's just so exciting for me. I'll probably never become famous. I don't even know if I'm talented enough for it. We'll see. I'll update soon with some more details about college and how I'm doing in general.
