I have three classes left in my entire college career? Wowza. Insert cliche about how fast it goes here. I'm feeling okay. I'm feeling good, actually. I'm downright excited for the rest of my life. I have a feeling that I might get all sad and nostalgic in about 2 months, but I know that I am ultimately moving to LA, and there will be lots of IC kids there...so it's not like I'll never see anyone again.
More about LA... sooo remember how I applied for 3 things? Well, I got an official rejection from the ABC Production Associates program. LESS THAN TWO DAYS after the application deadline. I mean, it's good to know, but methinks they didn't actually read all the essays and recommendation letters. It makes me feel better to think so, anyway. The Action program at Working Title films in London doesn't notify unsuccessful candidates, but it said that interviews are in "late April and early May," and now that it's May I think it's safe to say I'm not getting one. That leaves the Emmy internship program, which I should find out about next week. I am hopeful but not expectant. Last week I started to freak out so I applied for some things online, and also joined my old Rogue boss David's job board. I haven't heard anything, but that doesn't surprise me. There was a TV writer's assistant job on the UTA list, which would be amazing. Mostly though I figure that none of these will pan out and I will be back to my first Plan B (if that makes sense, haha). I am going to stay in Ithaca through some of July since my lease runs until July 31 and then move out to LA with some money from Hollywood video in my bank account, as well as some polished scripts. My screenplay is due tomorrow and I have 10 pages left to write. My pilot is more or less in shambles but I figure I will just write some crap to turn in for class and then deal with breaking it down and writing a decent draft after graduation.
What else? I just started getting sick but I am ignoring it. I am taking airborne and pseudophedrine and my nasal allergy spray and going on with life and it seems to be working so far. I went to the gym and ran a mile and a half at 6.2 (9:40 mile), something I haven't done yet. The key is to starting drinking a caffeinated beverage (mine is Enivga, as I've previously talked about) exactly one hour before you are going to start running. By the time you get to the gym you will be totally pumped!
This past weekend Josh and I saw the Killers at a sold-out Madison Square Garden. It was AMAZING! I had never been to the garden, much less a sold-out crowd jumping up and down and screaming. Really intense and energetic. (They also had a Japanese Beatles cover band open, which I found highly entertaining as I sipped my $7.25 plastic cup of Bud Light.) I was wary of Sam's Town at first but now I totally love it. My current favorites are "Reason's Unknown" and "Read My Mind." It's all good to run to, also, minus my left headphone not currently functioning.
Also any shoppers will appreciate that I walked around Manhattan, nearly giving up on finding a graduation dress (Banana, Loehmann's J Crew, Anthropologie and a few others all proved to be useless) until my first trip to Bloomingdale's. Of course, I couldn't afford most of the dresses there; I gave myself a $200 limit and even that is too much. But a lot of things were 40% already reduced prices, which led me to a $430 Vera Wang dress. It's tea-length, flowy and turquoise with a bright purple sash and purple embroidery. Very feminine. And after all the discounts, it cost me just $200. I guess I don't need to wait to get nominated for an Best Original Screenplay Oscar (or similar Emmy, which I would be totally fine with) to wear Vera Wang. :)
