Star Wars. After that trailer came out on Monday I flipped and have been more and more excited about it every day. I even dreamt that I watched Return of the Jedi last night and got mad because we have a plan to watch one every weekend leading up to the release of The Force Awakens. I grew up watching Star Wars, and as a film major and film nerd I have an obligation to love Star Wars, so it’s a good thing I do.
My screenplay. I have to write an entire movie by the end of the quarter. I started last week and am so far up to page 60 and that’s with me slacking most of the time. If I can kick my butt into gear I could have a first draft done by Halloween, which would give me a month to revise it.
Also working on having breathable air in my apartment. My downstairs neighbors chain smoke and smoke with water pipes (the appropriate term for a bong when used with tobacco) constantly and it all drifts into my apartment. Our landlords don’t seem to want to do anything even though it’s a violation of the no smoking clause of the lease, and the nuisance clause, and they are breaking the warranty of habitability, so I’ve resorted to using fans and leaving the windows open 24/7 in our almost winter-like weather. I’ve resigned myself to living in sweatpants and sweatshirts in my own home until I can move out. At least we’ll save on heating since we’ll never have it on.
All the crap I have to do to move and get a job. It’s overwhelming but it will be worth it.
Graduation. Moving out of this horrible town and horrible apartment. Star Wars. Halloween. Thanksgiving. Christmas.
Demi Lovato’s new song Confident off her new album of the same name. I had it on repeat yesterday as I got ready for work and ended up marching fiercely into the coffee stand with my hair actually done and bright red lipstick.
Lots and lots of delicious plant based foods! Going vegan and actually sticking with it has been the best choice I’ve ever made for my body. Sometimes I don’t hit calories, which I know is bad, but I’m just so happy at the end of every day when I know I’ve eaten only plant based foods and am giving my body more nutrients now than I was before. I’m working on hitting calories. I just get full on less calories now since you have to eat so many fruits and veggies. I’ve been adding more bananas since those are more calorically dense, and of course if my beloved peanut butter gets in the mix I’m sure to hit calories.
To get this beautiful apartment we’ve applied for that’s going to be brand new and is twice the size of the one we live in now for less than twice the price.
