Well, if my dates are correct, it's been exactly a really long time since I posted last. I think I shall update the inter-web community on my life.
Since I last blogged I have:
- Continued to work at the same place. However, things are looking up for me and I am crossing my fingers that I will get the assistant manager position.
- Continued my never-ending school career
- Written a script for a class that actually won something!
- Decided that I still want to move to Las Vegas so that I can go to UNLV and get my Masters in Screenwriting
- Started seeing a chiropractor, and actually helping her out in the office occasionally
- Bought my very own truck!
So yes! Pretty good things if you ask me. I am quite pleased with myself :) I must comment on the script though, because I am so excited about it! So, basically, I was in this screenwriting class last semester and what happens is every few weeks we had to turn in a short script. At the end of reading them all in class, we would all vote on the script we thought was the best and at the end of the semester, our professor would send them to L.A. to a publishing company owned by one of his former students. He would read them and if he liked yours, he might send you a check in the mail or something. Well! I had two of my scripts picked (which was so incredible, I couldn't believe everyone liked my writing so much!) And a few weeks ago, I got a letter in the mail from some place on Sunset Blvd. Turns out, this guy liked one of my scripts so much that he decided to give me the 2011 Fall Bucher Award for it!! And I got $50, which was pretty sweet. He actually personally typed out my letter and told me that if I needed anything or had any questions ever to email him or call him. I decided I needed to thank him so I sent him an email and also asked him if he knew of any internships where I lived (I didn't think he would but I wanted to ask anyway) he said he didn't really have any contacts in Colorado anymore, but if I was ever in L.A. to stop by because he would love to meet me and he was sure he would be able to find me some kind of internship in L.A.!! So, it looks like after I'm done in Las Vegas, I will be moving to L.A.! I am just so excited about this and I really honestly didn't expect anything like this to ever happen to me. And in all honesty, I may even consider skipping UNLV for now, especially if I could get some kind of writing internship in LA because I know you can learn more from real-world experience, so it looks like I've got a lot to think about! But this is actually so exciting that it's not really intimidating at all :)
