Having a shit day
Basically, just discovered that I have to HUGELY let down a close friend. Or waste about ten thousand dollars that was spent on me. Holy shit.
Finished act one of new project. Just took me three and a half weeks. Unsure if it should be read or not. Now I want to start doing an act a week. You know, like I did when I had absolutely zero free time and made time for it anyways? Yeah, that.
The International Page Awards update later today with the Quarter Finalist! Can’t wait! (maybe just sorta have been refreshing the page since I woke up)
How the Logic of "Friendzoning" Would Work If...
*Man walks into a store and finds employee*
Man: Alright, I've had enough. Why haven't you guys hired me?!
Employee: Uh...well sir, when did you put in your application?
Man: I never filled out an application.
Employee: Well sir, we can't consider you for employment if you've never filled out an application.
Man: No, that's bullshit, because I've been coming here for years now, and every single time I tell you all how much I love this store and how much I appreciate your customer service, unlike some of your other customers might I add!
Employee: Well, but that doesn't-
Man: AND I even told you that I didn't have a job!
Employee: But sir, that doesn't indicate to us that you would like a job at our store. And again, if you've never filled out an application, we can't consider you. Besides, we're not hiring.
Man: OH! Not hiring, HA! What a laugh. I see your store go through seasonal workers all the time. They come and go like nothing, but you won't consider me as a part-time employee even though I KNOW you've been looking for workers to fill positions? That's insane!
Employee: Sir, we've been looking to hire a few people for management positions. Do you have any management experience?
Man: Well no, but what does that matter?
Employee: ...Well sir, that's what we're looking for. You won't be suitable for the position without management experience.
Man: Oh that's such a load of crap. You know, you'll be waiting around a long time for a manager if you don't lower your standards a little. Who cares if someone knows how to manage a store? I LOVE this store and I'm willing to work here, that's all that should matter to you.
Employee: That...doesn't make any sense.
Man: NO! I'm done. This is over. From now on, no more Mr. Nice Guy.
Man: Fuck you, slut.
I've been busy
So I went from working 0 hours to working 50 hours a week. Sorry for the lack of updates! Being a full time junior manager for actors is actually a lot of work. In good news, I cleared the top 25% in the International Page Awards! Finding out in a week if I clear the top 10%.

So, I’m back from my injury, back from my family road trip and… DUN DUN DUN I’M EMPLOYED!
dictionaryofobscuresorrows: adj. hearing a person with a thick accent pronounce a certain phrase—the Texan “cooler,” the South African “bastard,” the Kiwi “thirty years ago”—and wanting them to repeat it over and over until the vowels pool in the air and congeal into a linguistic taffy you could break apart and give as presents.

Putting this out there
Would anyone be interested in me posting a thing about how to write action cleanly and smartly in script format? It was kinda my specialty at USC. And I can provide examples. So yeah, anyone interested?
