Rendericia: Roots Maintenance →
rendericia: Larry and I got our roots fixed up yesterday! It only took five hours -_____- However, it was the most I’ve ever successfully negotiated the price of something, and I feel like that was a lesson in itself. So there were little bits of hair that were breaking at the roots, and sticking out all…
Rendericia: Adult Life: Day 11 →
rendericia: Woke up. Got delicious mediterranean hummus/chicken type sandwich at Stardust. Yum! Larry got a few hundred records. JK, just the new Best Coast, Beach House, some old Shins (Oh, Inverted World<3) and something else, I forget. Finally bought my thank you cards! Now we just have to fill them…
Behold, the cleanness!
rendericia: Now don’t get me wrong! I love me some messy dreadies. But you see, I am now a college graduate. I can’t be walkin’ up on some post house, sporting a rat’s nest on my dome. I figure maybe the suits will forgive my locks, if they’re neat and clean. Yeah? P.S. My beautiful, dear mother got me that rainbow wrap! It was the sweetest thing ever. She even suggested that I buy a whole...
I'm sorry, but why do I have the most beautiful...
rendericia: LOL I love this last one!!
A new post! So I’m just laying here, compiling all my teams work that they submitted for our prospectus pitch, which is this Monday. (ahhh!) It’s all good work, but I have to pretty much recreate it all to be the same font/format/accents, etc. It’s time-consuming & annoying :) Had a 5-6 Advanced Post Production lecture today, aced a quiz I took after class, then got a...
St. Patrick's Day!
Okay so for As Ghosts, we had this one section where our main actor (Frank) speaks a poem, as it plays over a eulogy/montage (spoiler alert!) but because of production rushings, we never got a solid take of the poem in full. SO as all of us are in the editing suites, trying to conclude this movie, we just have a bunch of silence over this montage, and we needed Frank to come in and record it for...
This Just In
Official graduation information: May 4th, have to be there to sign in at 9:45, and then the ceremonies will start at 10:45. Please plan accordingly :)
It’s 10:45 so I feel like I should be going to bed, but I don’t have school tomorrow morning! SO weird! My IPC teacher took this week off, so we won’t be having any lectures. BOO YAH. So instead, I’ll be waking up and reading many chapters & completing many assignments in order to make up for the lost class time. Oh well! This weekend was pretty fun. Friday...
Hello there. Literally nothing exciting has happened this week. We went to the beach on Thursday (it was perfect), I took a final exam on Friday (it was not perfect but it was still good), we had a party Friday night (it was glorious to hang out with all my friends after the shoots/breaks), and then Saturday we took a day off from the office and went to a disc golf park! Then watched...
random photo of me building!
I think I was sanding that day, hence the face protection haha.
Just a few, just a few.
This was a side project that we had to do for class. It came out looking really close to my storyboards, so I was super happy about that. Maybe I’ll post some of those later for you to see/laugh at :)
Had a really awesome weekend. Thursday afternoon-Tuesday morning. Not bad, not bad. We’re almost at our goal for IndieGoGo… woo hoo! I really feel so grateful. I had people donating who I NEVER would have thought would even read the group’s message. :’) Today we’re doing a lighting review … yay. Can’t complain though, I spent most of yesterday editing and doing...
SPREAD THE WOOOORD!
Chillin in classss. We’re learning about another camera today. *yawn* When I get home, I reeeeally need to do dishes. Larry doesn’t come home till 5, so after I finish those, I might do my naaaails, or go for a runnn, or maybe even take a nap! Actually most likely, I’ll draw a bit and then do my nails. I’ve been drawing funny police-like sketches every day for the...
Had a strong morning
Woke up, got ready ahead of schedule, actually had time to feed the animals AND myself! Made a delish apple strudel. Pack up my things, got to school in record time — 7 minutes! Even got a super baller parking spot, and had enough time to back my car in. Only to realize that I had a 1:15, not at 9AM. ANNOYINGGGGGG. So then I went home and slept till 12. I had a CRAZY dream during...
I. Feel. Like. Death.
I thought I was getting better yesterday, but now Larry is sick as well, and we’re just a big heap of sniffly gross beings. We’ve set up the sick throne in our living room, a combination of couch&futon, surrounded by pillows and blankets and tissues and water bottles. I try to watch TV, but it makes my eyes sore after a while. We made our first fire yesterday!! Yes, it was...
I’m back in class today. We’ve started our Final Project, and I’m boom operating for a script called “As Ghosts”. It’s about a war veteran with Alzheimer’s, and it’s pretty beautiful. I’m working with who I consider to be some of the strongest people in class, so I’m really excited to see how it turns out. I’m extremely sick...
Majade and I opening up each other’s gifts!! I KNOW my hair looks crazyness here. I assumed the public could handle me in my natural cave woman state. Sorry that the music is so loud, it was playing off the laptop we used to make the video bahaha. We weren’t saying anything interesting anyway. LARRY IS THE BEST BOYFRIEND IN THE WORLD You can’t really see it, but HIS gift...
Could have sworn I posted something over the weekend, but I guess not. Friday, Larry and went on that date to the Enzian. Melancholia was odd, but the food was deliiiiicious. We even got dessert :O Then Saturday and Sunday I had class 9-1 & 9-1 so I wasn’t really able to go out or anything. I mostly relaxed during my off hours, but I was also able to get some things done. ...
Good Morning Parents
Oops, it’s 1PM. GOOD THING I DON’T HAVE CLASS ON WEDNESDAYS :D I had my first lab with Avid last night, and I’m angry to say that I really liked it. Of course I prefer the editing software that Full Sail doesn’t give to us. My instructor was awesome, and I made sure to introduce myself to him at the end of class. Hopefully after I finish the course, I can snag a...
P.S. I got a new hat!
It even has a little poof on top :]
Ay Dios Mio
It’s been so long, tumblr! I feel terrible. I’m sitting in Editing Lecture right now. Last week had it’s ups and downs but definitely landed on a good note. It was a mostly unproductive break, but I guess I’d rather call that ‘relaxing’. I’ve been reading the 48 Laws of Power, but it’s very hard because Larry will be sitting next to me reading...
ordered my first business cards!
Having a glorious few days off
So much time off that I’m actually opening up my laptop at home! :O Sooo as I told Mom, the Moving On Shoot went very well. I ended up mixing the entire time, all 3 days. There was one point where a can of film was flashed to the light, so we ended up using Day 3 to make up for reshooting most of Day 1… frustrating at first but it was actually interesting to see how much better we were...
My little beastie. You can actually see in this video where his neck was shaved & the bite is stitched up.
Nerdier Side of the XMAS list.
A USB powered external hard drive with significant storage (at least 500GB) A wireless mouse A new USB thumb drive (mine keep breaking!!! >:O) There was something else but I don’t remember … yyyyya!
Introducing: Roger Ramos
He’s one of my favorite classmates in FL, and I don’t know if you guys* (*my mom and dad. not my EIGHTY-FIVE OTHER UNNECESSARY FOLLOWERS) (STOP FOLLOWING ME) have heard much about him? He’s from Laredo, Texas. He’s super mexican (so he’s like my female Carolina<3) (jk Carolina, he’s nothing like you) and very hilarious. We work together in set building labs...
The pricier side of my Christmas list (AS PER...
I haven’t really decided on which color to get. I heard that the colors are totally different online than they are in person. I guess just use your best judgement! But not yellow, because I already have a bright yellow hoodie. :]
Introducing: MY Shorty
He’s my shortest dread, and he never ever wants to fit into any ponytail or bun that I style my hair into. He’s just too short to make it, so he’s always just hangin’ out doing his own thang. It was annoying at first, but I have grown fond of him, my little shorty <3
I HAVE NEVER USED/LOVED A DEVICE SO MUCH. That’s an over-exaggeration, but I legitimately us the Apple TV every single day. It’s the only way I play music in our house (AirPlay with my laptop or iPhone) I have the screensaver set to display all my favorite Florida pictures (so our guests have things to laugh at as the images float by). We use it to catch up on all our tv shows,...
my neighbor IS SO AWESOME
His name is Juan, and he’s a family man who is constantly blasting awesome music in his garage, and he’s ALWAYS doing yard work or working on someone’s car, or doing just manly things in general with their garage door always open. It’s awesome cause he’s always there for neighborhood reference, like when the garbage men come, and how I can get those nifty recycling...
I just HeyTell'd with my parents. They're so...
Flights for December
Just booked my tickets for winter break. The one-way from Orlando to Newark was awesome. Got a 6am flight for $95 (ish). The one-way from Newark to Charlotte? AT LEAST SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS. I was like WHATTTT?!?! So I hope you don’t mind, but I went for the $100 ticket that went from Laguardia to Charlotte. I understand this is a huge crazy hassle, so I’ll figure out my own ride...
Mom & Marykate —- this weekend all my iPhone friends and I downloaded this application called HeyTell. It’s like a push & talk walkie talkie type thing, and you can send little voice messages to each other, and it works instantly! We had such a hilarious time being like “Hey. Over.” “What’s up? Over.” but it’s also really useful for...
Happy Monday to you all! I was extremely unwilling to wake up this morning. Saturday Larry and I hosted a ridiculously awesome cookout. Everyone pitched in (about 15-20ish people) and there was plennnnty of food for everyone— burgers, hot dogs, Larry’s birthday cake, key lime pie, chips galore, soda galore, etc etc. It was all my favorite people from class, and we had such a good...
Mom — yes, Larry definitely got your joke. He actually cracked up when I brought it up. :] Also, did you upgrade to iOs 5 yet? What a friggin hassle. It took me hours to get it all working, but the new upgrade IS pretty cool. It was just frustrating trying to get serviced with the other 451 million people trying to download it haha. Literally nothing to update. I’m hosting...
hahah! Mom&Dad! remember CandyLand from Lighting? well this is basically a trailer for new students entering the class. there’s a lot of filmy inside jokes, but you get the basic picture. IT’S INTENSE.
Mom & Dad !
Larry got his birthday letter yesterday! He was very grateful that you remembered & cared :’)
Grades from last month
I GOT AN 83 IN MY PRODUCTION DESIGN CLASS!!!!! not gonna lie, I really wouldn’t have been surprised if I failed… that class was HARD in the beginning. Like, I definitely picked it up in the second half, and understood the program & class a lot better.. but I had some pretty soooorrrry grades in the beginning. Pulled it off with a B though!!! As for Cinematography, none of my grades...
‘Tis a glorious Thursday morning, and I actually woke up early enough to make myself breakfast AND a sandwich for lunch! WOO! This is like, my zillionth 9AM class in a row, but I have off tomorrow (for Larry’s birthday!!) and I am fully intending to SLEEP INNN. Didn’t do much yesterday. After class I had lunch / watched an episode of True Blood with Larry, then I did some...
I just called Whisper Lake (AGAIN.) anddddd I EXPLICITLY explained IN DETAIL, to Laurie, exactly where my closet doors are, where they have been since pretty much the day I moved in, and how I’d be happy to come over there myself to retrieve the doors MYSELF, since I know for a FACT that they have not moved an inch since last year. Then I calmly apologized for not putting the doors on...
