Appreciating UArts

I always talk about the support system our school has.  Every school advertises how they help you in their broshures, but this school really does it!  In the school of Film, they had a meeting with the students last semester to let US critique THEIR work...and they listened!  We said that we'd like to work in groups, have more class time to workshop, and would like more time to do projects, all of which happened this semester.

Collaboration

Something you will be forced to do is to collaborate.  Embrace it becasue it may be annoying not to work solo, but the work you produce will be surprising!  This doesn't just mean collaborate with other majors.  Yes, film majors should go get musicians to score their projects and actors to star in them.  Dancers should totally audition for the musical.  Illustration and Animation majors should most definitely have a nice conversation about potential projects.  Also, you should collaborate within your major.

First Day Snow Day

Today was the first day of the Spring 2014 semester, or it was supposed to be anyway.  My day was supposed to consist of waking up early, doing my first homework assignment which I procrastinated doing (Who wants to do homework over break?!), then going off to my first class of the semester.  However, something glorious happened: snow.  Don't get me wrong, I love going to school and am VERY greatful that I have this opportunity, but first day back from break is rough.

Winter Break

Finally, break is here.  I'm very excited about that and to have a chance to go back home.  It was really neat to see all of the snow still here in the burbs.  In the city, the snow is all gone almost!  It's feeling like the holidays.

 

I'm off to go eat all the cookie dough my mom is trying to bake!

Almost...done...the semester!

We're in our final days of the semester.  It's the hectic time where our lives are crazy with ediing final projects, going to call backs, late nights in the studio, tech rehearsals, and writing paper after paper.  The nice thing is that we are nearing the end, so when we cross something off our to-do list, nothing else gets added until the spring semester.  Personally, I have one 2 1/2 page paper, 2 classes, and a crit left for the semester.  That's all that stands between me and my mom's home made pizzelles.  We're almost there!

Roommates and Housing

A lot of people always ask me about roommates and housing.  Is it cheaper to live off campus?  How do you find a roommate?  Did you get along with your roommates in dorms?

Writer's Block

Finals are around the corner.  I have to write a script for my junior production final, develop a concept for my experimental final, write papers for the liberal arts finals, practice monologues for the season's audition, film my shorts, but all I can think about is Thanksgiving break.  At this point in the semester, I find it really hard to focus because I have exerted so much energy since September.  We NEED Thanksgiving break just to refresh a little so we can get through the rest of the semester.
