Day 9

I really have no idea what to update with, so I think I'm just going to try a free writing exercise.

The only problem with free writing is that it's hard to think of a topic to start writing about. Generally I encounter this problem 90% of the times, and thus it negates my attempt at a successful experiment. I suppose that's the way of it though. i never was particularly good at science. Well, actually I was ok at it, but I'm terrible at math. I barely passed my high school algebra class. Math has always been my worst subject, and when I found out that the science I loved so much would involve a lot of math, I gave up my ambitions to be a scientist. I've always been more left brained anyway. I'd much rather create original ideas rather than expand upon established ones. That's why I write. I write because it's a way for me to create and put out my own thoughts and ideas. It was in my senior year of high school that I realized this to it's full potential and I made steps to work at becoming a film maker.

I love movies, and I have always loved to entertain people. I was always in plays and musicals, I was in choir in high school, and in college (for the one semester I went anyway) I took two classes for video production and editing. I soon realized however, that editing was not my forte. I essentially passed by the skin of my teeth but I knew it wasn't for me. After that semester is when I moved to Chicago. I haven't been able to find any affordable colleges around me that offer classes that would be beneficial to my dream of being a film maker, so right now that dream is on the back burner. I have thought about pursuing a career in photography in the meantime. I like photography enough, and it would give me a great excuse to shoot models in the nude. Which, I must admit, sounds like an amazing thing.

And that's all I can think of to write about right now.


  1. The great thing about free-writing is it helps to organize your thoughts, improves writing ability over time, and can be fun to look back on in a few years and be like, 'What the hell is this, there's no way I ever had a crush on a dude.'

    Trust me.
