good ol' oscar

Ya know something' that really gets to me? In order to win any award in Hollywood, you have to be in or part of a movie that is less than everyday truth. Why don't they give away awards to performances that are of everyday people? You have to be playing a character that is disabled, mentally ill, from another world, a foreigner, or dead. I hate that. Some of the best performances have been by actors playing roles of normal people. Normal, real people going through hell, or something like it. I love a movie that can send my emotions through the wash and make me forget that I'm watching a movie. I appreciate good storytelling.

"money optional"

Wouldn't that be a great sign to see as you walk into a store. I recently saw 'the Terminal" and it's just wonderful. Great characters, primo acting, expensive set, and a real plot to boot! "One man, two women, no good. Crowded." -Viktor Navorski

This morning was fun. I went to the skate park with Mike and took some pictures and picked up a few bruises. I was hoping I wouldn't look like an idiot on the skateboard, but once I realized I had no way of preventing that I just went for it. But that didn't last long. I switched to my in-lines pretty quick so I could at least enjoy myself a little. I think I should go there more often. I also think I should buy some cheap jeans to ruin instead of wearing my nice pair. I also need to get over myself. Here comes the sun!

workin girl

I have high hopes for a possible job. I went down to a local coffeehouse to drop off a resume. The gal that took it seemed very excited. She asked if I had experience and I have two years. She was happy about that. She said they are hiring right now. My God is good - even when I'm not. When I asked if they were hiring a month ago the lady said they weren't planning on it but I could bring my resume by anyway. I procrastinated long enough and finally went down there. Even though I don't drink coffee, I love the coffeehouse.

i'd rather be anything but ordinary

I've just realized that I can't continute to sit and wait for success to fall into my lap. I've been wait for a day that won't come. I have to earn it. I've just been waiting for my life to begin. And it's so sad. I've lost three years. I'm deciding right now that I'm not going to lose anymore. I dreaming BIG and getting out of my own way. I might fail. But I'd rather fail at something than suceed at nothing. It's time to be the one I was born to be. Katie-OUT!

What kind of jobs are there for people who don't want to do any work? -Besides government jobs. Life's too short.

It seems I've been a bit scarce this week. I've been trying to figure out life - again. I don't think I'll ever know what I should do. I know that I should do something though! Something's better than nothing - most of the time. I'd like to go to film school or take a screenwriting workshop, but I have no money! Darn green cotton paper! Gets in the way too often. And I let it. A film school was supposed to call me an hour ago. Candice should be here any minute. Maybe I'll ask her what to do, and then I'll just do it. Like Nike. No questions asked. I love me some beef jerky!

weird is interesting

So the movie isn't making much progress. I'm tired of not doing anything! I just sit and eat and sleep. I need some new friends. Keeping the old of course. I dream of fame and fortune, so I should surround myself with people with similar dreams. We can bounce off each other. I need to find a place I fit. I really want to move to California.

A Plan for the Improvement of English Spelling

A Plan for the Improvement of English Spelling
by Mark Twain

For example, in Year 1 that useless letter "c" would be dropped
to be replased either by "k" or "s", and likewise "x" would no longer
be part of the alphabet. The only kase in which "c" would be retained
would be the "ch" formation, which will be dealt with later. Year 2
might reform "w" spelling, so that "which" and "one" would take the
same konsonant, wile Year 3 might well abolish "y" replasing it with
"i" and Iear 4 might fiks the "g/j" anomali wonse and for all.
Jenerally, then, the improvement would kontinue iear bai iear
with Iear 5 doing awai with useless double konsonants, and Iears 6-12
or so modifaiing vowlz and the rimeining voist and unvoist konsonants.
Bai Iear 15 or sou, it wud fainali bi posibl tu meik ius ov thi
ridandant letez "c", "y" and "x" -- bai now jast a memori in the maindz
ov ould doderez -- tu riplais "ch", "sh", and "th" rispektivli.
Fainali, xen, aafte sam 20 iers ov orxogrefkl riform, wi wud
hev a lojikl, kohirnt speling in ius xrewawt xe Ingliy-spiking werld.

laying low

I've decided to forget about guys for a while. Not that there's been any in my life. But as soon as someone hears you mention that you'd like to be married, off they go to hook you up. Especially mothers. I'm not a fan of anything close to a 'blind' date. Last week she wanted to set me up with her friend's son. Her friend who she's only known for a little while and just found out she's has a son. At least this one's not 18. He sounds like a fine guy and all, but I don't want to set up something where everyone knows that the reason for the meeting is for the two of you to connect. Can't we just be introduced? I'd rather go on dates where the last thing I'm worried about is whether or not I even like the guy. Apparently, some other guy from the church I've been going to, wants to ask me out. My mom hears about it because these woman are trying to find out if that's okay with me. How would I know if it's okay, I don't know the guy! So now he's supposed to call me tonight!?!? Why didn't he just even say hello at church? So I could have some idea of who he is. Anyway, I'm done with guys at this point. I'm just going to focus on pursuing the things I love. Like film-making. And shopping! This whole thing really makes me itch to shop, but I have no money. Shopping helps me loose focus on the big issues in my life. I don't go crazy, I just buy a new shirt or something. Wow, long blog.

call me butter

Well call me butter, cuz I'm on a roll! I've written two scenes for this summer's blockbuster! Well, actually it'll be shown in November. I guess it'll be the feel good Thanksgiving movie. If you have any tips or ideas on low budget filmmaking, drop me a line. I'm always up for help. And if it's super good, I might give you a film credit! Where's the best place to find good actors? I won't have internet access on Saturday, so I'll have to post on Sunday. Just a heads up. Seacrest, OUT!

can't always be great

So I signed up for college classes this morning. Don't know how long that will last though. I think I sat here about 10 minutes trying to come up with something great to write for today. Then I realized, things can't always be great. And that's okay. So, here's my 'not so great' no subject blog. Wish me luck in school!

"A Half-Pipe Romance" Sounds interesting, huh? I know you want to see it! I know, that's just a working title. I'm not sure if it'll be the final title.
