No, no, I thought I had it tough having to complete an Eagle Project (you know, if I wanted to achieve Eagle rank) But now my high school is making me repeat the whole thing over again with a new project. Sure, it's less physically intense this time, but it still requires a whole bunch of actual "thinking" and time to crank it out. A couple of notes on it.
1) The project keeps changing. It was originally the writing and / or filming of some sort of fiction. Then it turned into a filming of a piece of science fiction (no, quite literally, fiction discussing protein synthesis). Now it's creating a collection of picts from my Drama New York trip. It's lowered in quality, for sure. Still going to be good stuff, but not as good as would be a whole creative movie (my problem for that... couldn't find enough actors)
2) I've got to put this project together, using movie editing software and then a DVD burner. All on my slow computer. Yeah. And I am talking about hundreds of pictures. Quite literally, I'm dealing with probably one thousand picts, and an hours worth of movie interviews. I'm sure it's one huge chunk of my current harddrive... and it's a pain to organize it all together. With music too, none the less (I need to buy some music too)
3) There's this essay that was due last week that I need to write. I got an extension... something about working on a play every day till 7 PM allowed my teacher to give me some slack... but it's due tomorrow and I have nothing done with it. Haven't even started typing it up. Thought about it... am currently typing out thoughts in this blog entry that I could use later... but it's not turn-in quality. What's annoying... I wrote a ton of pages for my Eagle project, and now I have to do it all again.
4) Pulling an all-nighter, skipping tomorrow (you see, I have this terrible sun burn, so I can't go to school in case somebody tries to pat me on the back for being such an extremely cool person.) [/sarcasm] Anyhow, I expect a full day off from school should give me time to fit stuff together.
5) I'm graduating in two weeks, and I don't give a care. Those who are all excited about graduation must have their head in the ground. I still have some work to do, and if I don't do it well, I may get a poor grade and end up working at Home Depot for the rest of my life. (A likely possibility, as UW checks final transcripts for high school seniors to make sure we don't slack off our last semester)
So, I'm high strunk, worn out, and (best of all) SUNBURNED! (Dang UV rays... yes, I know, should've worn sun screen). And now I have type up my rant-style post. If you have read this far, congradulations. As mentioned in the past after such long rants, you must have no life if you read this all. Because, really, what sane person would want to read about somebody else's life's struggles.
Off to go check up on some other blogs. [/irony]
