Reviving this, hopefully long term. I found that Twitter doesn't let me say a while lot in 140 characters and double, even triple posting won't do me any favours with my followers. So a whole lot has changed since my last entry...two years ago nearly. That is quite depressing. I started uni last year and I've become a cynical, sometimes depressing person. I very much regret to say. Yes I have opinions, yes they can be negative, but when there isn't much positive things going on you find that your mind wanders off that way and sets up camp there for a while. My goal is to pack up the camp and switch to a more positive one, but who honestly can say they enjoy listening to someone being all happy and bubbly ALL the time? I guess I'm someone that can't force it if I'm not feeling it. It feels so contrived. I just want to be honest and modest and myself. But yes I admit I want to bring back the happiness of 2008-2010 but that was when I had college and really enjoyed everything about life and now I am stuck in a horrible city, with some nice people (not like my friends at home though) and a couple of bad lecturers miles away from home.
I know I shouldn't bad mouth but it is 180 degrees different to what I had at home and I really don't like it. So now summer is over and I'm going back to all that, luckily I get a four day weekend so I am making the most of that and coming home a lot. That should keep me happy for now. I would transfer uni's but it is really too much hassle (my boyfriend went through it all and loathed the process probably even more than being at my uni)
I don't want to complain anymore in this journal now. There is enough to sufficiently depress. So some good stuff:
-Got a very cute cat called Milo
-Potentially MIGHT be working on Downton Abbey season 4 next year
-Downton Abbey tribute video I edited was broadcast on American TV last week
-Worked on a feature film with the Co-Op British Youth Film Academy for some of the summer
-Got a lovely new 35mm lens + new Nikon D5100 for my Birthday
-Went to Rome for a week with my boyfriend
-Went to Center Parcs for a week with my family and boyfriend
-Got back into video games
-Still doing paid website work
-Potentially working on a feature film in Cardiff next year (paid) and using Red Epic cameras!
-Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey) saw my film showreel and said it was great and that I have lots of good work under my belt
So not bad. Just some other crap that's been going on (and uni) that has really been dragging me down but I don't really want to vent on here, it's quite personal. Ooooo vague! Mysterious!
I will say however that I am looking forward to moving into my new uni house with new uni people who I haven't met before and going partying. And obviously making films, as long as I'm with motivated people.
