As of 3:30 this afternoon I am done with this semester. As much as I am glad to be through with it there are some things I’ll miss from this set of classes. This semester taught me a lot both in classes as it was supposed to and how to deal with classes and assignment that I don’t like or understand.
I finished a show bible (description and set up) and pilot for an original series. It’s a thing that I really want to work on more and I don’t quite know where to go from here. Anyone know a a writing group in SF? Any writers want to give me some feedback?
I did have mostly gen eds this semester, which turned out to be a fun thing. I met a lot of people outside my department, some of whom I’m sure I will keep in touch with in the coming year as I continue to develop my ideas and career goals. I am so blessed to know people going into so many different fields, growing my network to include people I can call for all kinds of questions. In fact, a few weeks ago I needed to have a realistic-sounding measurement of energy for my pilot and I asked it as a question on Facebook. I had three answers within five minutes. My network of friends is awesome.
Sadly, this was my last semester with my German class. Most of us had been in German 1 last semester and the smaller class size this semester meant that twice a week we would hang out and try to speak German together. I mean, we learned stuff too, but it was absolutely my favorite group this semester because it was such fun to hang out with these people.
I have been surprised with how well finals have gone this week. I’ve gotten to sleep in twice. Last night I even go t a chance to go to a preview showing of The Hobbit. So much awesome, guys, absolutely go see that movie with Christmas. It’s been a really calm week in what can sometimes be a hurricane of stuff to be done.
While this is the end of my semester and the end of my time in Chicago (at least for a little while), this day also marks the beginning of a lot of other things including the Christmas season, time spent at home with family and friends, and my time as a semi-professional working towards my Semester in LA next spring. I don’t know what these next few months are going to bring, but I’m excited for the outcome.
