My relationship with movies (the condensed version)

I was six years old when I fell in love with movies and how they’re made.

Seventeen years old when I decided I wanted to make movies for a living.

Eighteen years old when I made my first ever short film that was constructed with actual story elements.

Nineteen years old when I participated in a filmmaking competition called the 48 Hour Film Project.

The Things I’m learning as a filmmaker right now, which I saw pre-learning/self-teaching, will be forever useful during my life as a filmmaker.

I’m still learning and I don’t think I’ll ever stop learning.

I love movies more than most things. I love watching and reading anything that has to do with movies or making movies. The way I think, speak, and dream is like a movie. Moments of my life are like scenes that I’m living in.

The day that I cannot physically, mentally, or even spiritually make a movie, is the day that I hope God will use as the day that I die.

I don’t believe that we fall in love in the sunshine, I believe we fall in love in the wars.

Just like Romeo and Juliet were fools in love, so were we to be fooled that they were really in love.

No one loves America more than an immigrant does. It is all gratitude. Give it a couple of generations and it mellows, becomes jaded, and then lapses into entitlement and the nasty possessiveness of born-Americans who say immigration has gone far enough, time to seal the borders.

There’s a pleasure to loving someone even when you know there’s no chance in them loving you back. The pain I felt let me know I was still alive.

Two Things I Know I Will Love, forever and always

  1. Movies/Filmmaking
  2. Bboying/dancing

These are the things that I think/know I will love, forever and always.

I love making and watching movies too much to totally stop. I may go on a break from that but I will always come back to watching and making movies. I love making movies, I want to make a living off making movies. I enjoy the whole filmmaking production and spending time with people who share the same passion as I do and who support me in making movies. Since I was a kid, I studied how to make movies. I would always want to go to the special features menu to see how the movie was made during production and telling myself that I wanted to do that! Movies will forever be in my heart.

I love to dance, especially break dance! I said it before and I’ll say it again: ever since I was a kid, I’ve always been attracted to break dancing. When I hear the music flow through me, the only dance that goes through my body is bboy moves. these past two year, I’ve been going to practice more often and I am told that I am getting better and that makes me happy. I’ve met new people, been to new places, and made new friends. Bboying will forever be in my heart.

Things are looking good :)

This weekend, I am going to my first out-of-state bboy (break dance) competition! It’s in St. Louis and it’s called Illist King. I’m very excited for this competition and I’ve been practicing all of last month long for this.

I know for myself and in my humble opinion that I’m probably not the best dancer there and that I might not do the best, BUT I will dance to the best of my ability and I will dance my heart out and my muscles out! I’m excited to leave Iowa for a weekend and do what I love to do with minimal worries!

Also, I’m starting my classes up again! I have Math 2 (which is pretty much Calculus II) and I have Consumer Analysis for this month. It looks like a pretty fair month, Consumer Analysis seems like a bunch of reading and memorizing for tests and writing good papers. Math 2 seems a little difficult, but I have Wolframalpha to help me out a bit.

Trying to keep myself positive and learning new things. Mass last weekend said that God loves me no matter what, no matter what our mistakes are and that at confession, when we spill our troubles out, that they are forgiven. God forgives us. We just have to forgive ourselves. I’m still forgiving myself and I am looking forward and working out my salvation.

Good Judgement comes from Experience. Experience comes from Bad Judgement.

This I learn the hard way. But I keep moving forward…

I think i’d fall in love with that woman
I’d have a great friendship with that dude
