I found out today that the class schedule has changed. They are only offering Advanced Directing in the fall now. I could take it in the Spring of 2000, which now means I will not be able to direct a five-minute film, much less a 25-minute film. But I will still graduate and I’m sure God has a plan.
I began doing some research on the net for internships. I sent an email into Screen Gems Studios in Wilmington, NC. It looks like a nice place. We’ll see.
I ran into Mary Jo yesterday night. She received an email from an old college guy she really liked and he’s now engaged to another girl. Mary Jo was full of tears. I went with her to her apartment, sat close by her, and listened.
She sent me an email today saying thanks for listening. I wrote her back, telling her she was a complete treasure.
Christin needs a prom date, and she asked me. I said I would be glad to take her, but I don’t have any money. So, her parents offered to pay for me, get my tux, pay for dinner and everything. I couldn’t say no. I didn’t go to my own prom, but at age 22, I’m going to one now. It’s about a month away.
There are only two weeks of classes left. This place is quickly passing me by.
