Well it's 6 am

and I have been up since 4 am! Go me!

Actually not really.

I don't know if this is a problem or not, but I just love working on film projects, and I just want to learn to do everything.  I told myself in December that I would only be working on 2 Capstones, well that changed as of last night. 3 baby! Yeehaw - Imma do some Craft and Catering Service, kiddos.

I have noticed that most students think everybody else knows what they are doing.  In all honesty, we don't.  We have an idea, but then we are thrown into a situation and then learn to make the best of it.  However, I can say that I have experience in managing a budget, and boy is that hard.  I don't know if I will ever be amazing at the job, but I gots the brains (almost).  I have learned a lot since January.  A lot about myself, and how to work with other people in difficult situations.

Being on film sets and around people who aren't in the program has taught me one thing.  It is all about one thing - giving praise.  We need to be happy and grateful for the work that people put in around us.  I am not the perfect example, but I have found myself being more aware of what goes on and giving thanks.  It has helped me, and I think helped other people.  Be aware.  Be happy.  Be grateful.

Now, onto the next thing.  I am really excited to see what happens with my life, because I think it is going to be really cool.

I REALLY neeeeeded this reminder this morning. It's weird how easy we take others for granted around us. Especially others who we care about.

Your life IS cool.
