A Terrible Blogger’s Update

I really have been a terrible blogger. But I have a legitimate reason.

I’m human. And I’m tired.

The Badasses of Howard’s End

I am currently reading Howard’s End by E.M. Forster for my Senior Seminar class. I was supposed to finish reading it over the weekend, but time wasn’t on my side.

The 1910 novel is one of those types that never appealed to me. I’m apt to read things published within the last five years, and it’s usually young-adult stuff. All these high-literature books fall into my lap because of school, and I usually approach them quite lazily.

I had no idea I was going to love this novel.

A New Perspective

So, as I mentioned before, I am a member of my university’s film club. We’re a group of students with a strong interest in film. The club members are students who write, cast, direct, and produce short student films.

I initially joined because of my interest in acting. But seeing the film-making process firsthand—however small the production was—made me realize how much work went into making a film. It wasn’t neat, but it wasn’t easy either.

And, I learned how much power there is in being the director, so I want to try my hand in that.

Talkin’ ’bout my Generation

I’m a Millennial.

It’s something that’s been weighing on my mind recently, especially as I’m nearing graduation. I should be more excited for it, but there are a number of factors that aren’t allowing me to fully enjoy completing my college experience–which wasn’t that great to begin with.

My socioeconomic status, my education, and the immediate world I live in all play a role in how I look at the end of a chapter in my life. It’s been a bit depressing, so I spent my Spring Break on the laptop so hard I developed an eye-twitching that just stopped yesterday (and it’s starting again).

I don’t want sympathy or ‘Everything will be alright’ types of comments. I’m in a bad mood and I want to stay in it until I’ve figured out for myself how to get out of it (don’t worry–I’ve done this plenty of times.)

Writing is my therapy, so let me write about how being young right now is difficult, okay?

Okay.

Spring Break Plans

I… don’t have any.

My last quarter for this school year begins next Monday. I really want to spend this Spring Break getting as much writing done as I can as well as catch up on Netflix shows I’ve added to my list throughout the quarter.

Currently listening to “Our Own House” by Misterwives—an upbeat and energetic song I’m enjoying
