I have recently been told by a very close friend that I may be undiagnosed ADD. I would definitely have to agree with this to a point. I think my problem is I have so many thoughts, ideas, and things to do to focus on only one task at a time. This creates a problem when I am going to school, working, writing and documenting all at the same time.

Considering my lack of focus on school the last couple of days I have spent the morning re-focusing and completing those projects before they are due tonight. I'm down to 1 quiz and 1 paper. Not bad considering I had a mini-movie, a remixing and a quiz on top of that this morning. With work tonight I'm not going to have my usual last minute time to finish everything in. This is a good thing because it will make me do things earlier.
Work is AMAZING. I feel like being behind a camera is where I'm supposed to be. I haven't had to run my own yet and am still learning but it has stirred a feeling in me to get out there and continue on with my dreams.
I have decided to dedicate at least 1 of my 2 days off this week to working on my screenplay. The notebook I carry around with me is busting with scenes and ideas I need to get typed out before they don't make any sense anymore. I am going to set a deadline for myself of the end of this month to have the rough draft complete and ready for revisions. This means that I will be spending a lot of time in front of my computer screen until then but I am willing to make that sacrifice not to mention I can always take it outside when it finally warms up again.
I have taken upon myself to test my skills by documenting my hometown, where I grew up, and significant places that have made a difference in my life. This task would be a lot easier if it weren't for my camcorder breaking on my Friday. Hopefully they'll be able to fix it this week and I'll be back on track.
Life is funny sometimes. Last summer I felt like I was lost, I had dreams and ideas but I didn't know what to do with them. Then I decided to go to Full Sail and move to Orlando. When that didn't work out I just knew it was never going to happen. Then I discovered that I could do school online and not have to move and things started looking up. Next I finally get a job after 4 months and it's along the same line as what I want to do and everything is falling into place. If you had told me 6 months ago that all of my dreams seem to coming true I would have laughed in your face but now I feel like anything is possible.
This is a clip of my very first solo filming. Granted I get no credit for this and I just had to hold the shot but I am very proud of this and just wanted to share it with you.
