Holy crap. This was a tough one.
I say that every semester. But this time, I mean it. Two film series (one I may post on here), an eight-page research paper completed over the course of three days from conception to completion, 40+ shop hours, learning all about lighting a film, and the production of a web series. All while working in retail and not murdering anybody.
I got my last grade today. Let's see...
Lighting for Stage and Film: B
Introduction to Production Technology: B
TV Production: A-
American Film History: A
Dunno how TV Production constitutes an A-, since I got a 94%. But whatever. It's not keeping me from graduation. And every time I think of mentioning it to the professor, I think of that scene in Welcome to the Dollhouse where Dawn has to face the class and talk about "grade-grubbing."
All in all, a 3.425! My lowest GPA since starting at ODU, but it's still pretty damn good. Especially considering how hard this semester was.
In the next couple days, I'm gonna take a day to do nothing but watch gialli. Death Carries a Cane and the Blu Ray of Torso are sitting next to my player.
Christmas is six days away. Got your shopping done? I do!
Just hoping I got a giallo or two in my stocking. Or a gift certificate to www.cinema-de-bizarre.com. Or money.
Okay. Gonna relax a bit for the night.
