You said you wasn't sad to see her go... But of course you were...

Ok, so if you haven't figured it out by now, all my post titles are song lyrics. A bit of a 'scene' thing to do, I know, but its generally just the last song I listened to or one that's stuck in my head - it's easier than thinking up something witty or just a generally descriptive title!

Countdown continues: 2 weeks, 3 days.

So I am already in debt to my Uni, and term hasn't even started... Yay! Ahh.

Still writing the scripts. No idea when or if we'll actually get to finish filming. I hope we do. Hope.

Not much to update. My mum made jam.

Yeah I think that's about it.

Hermione can't draw, Hermione can't draw!

Please, if you haven't, watch A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel. It is important to your cultural life and humour. That and the fact that I cry with laughter every time! Team Star Kid I am in awe of you all!

Ok, so I missed a day yesterday (bad sign) but here I am on day four, well technically five because it's past midnight, which is why this will be short.

Went to a clothes swap evening with some friends! It was so lovely, and although I didn't take anything with me, I think I left with the biggest bag! Hehe. All wonderful things that will fit beautifully with my new Cambridge setting in September! Hehe.

Still packing things for Cam!


Wow, its really soon!

Anyway. Even my cat has fallen asleep, so I think I should too. Toodle oo for now, will post again tomorrow/later in the day.

Baby you're not alone, 'cause you're here with me!

Day 2, and I'm still here!

COUNTDOWN: 24 days

Have been working some more on my scripts and screenplays. Have cast a few of the characters, for one of the principals I'm stuck between two people for one role, but we shall have to wait and see!

I put out a casting call last night on my facebook group*, and have had one reply for a role, which is really good because I was completely stuck with who to cast in it!

More uni prep - I've now got some notepads for september! Wahoo! And I've even got some exercise books for screenplay/script writing as well! Add that to my trunk!

I was talking to my friend earlier about starting uni, and the sad thing is, I'm never going to be doing music again! After GCSE Music and BTEC Music Performance in Singing for A Level, I have no reason to do music again. But there we go! I'll always keep up the singing I think, especially with gospel choir!

Ahh the exclamation marks are back again...

A lady at the checkout in the supermarket the other day said Star Wars isn't as good as Shrek. Interesting. I'm not that big a fan of Star Wars (shock horror) but I don't know if it can really be compared to Shrek... Favourite film of the moment: Inception. Oh my gosh, go and see it if you haven't. It's utterly amazing. Best film of the year! Massively looking forward to Scott Pilgrim vs. The World as well! Love love love Kick Ass, so I'm enjoying this trend of comic book movies at the moment.

I've set up a blog for my film stuff, so I'll post a link on here and try and keep up with it maybe. And maybe a twitter as well. Although I am hopeless with Twitter. Ah, we'll see!

I'm off to edit more film.

Stars fading but I linger on dear...

I keep promising myself that I will stick to one of these one day, so here is my start! Again!

Uni plans are all going swimmingly! I got the grades I needed for Anglia Ruskin, and almost doubled the amount of UCAS points they asked for! Moving in on Wed. 15th September, but there's a freshers thing for people on my course like an hour before I'm scheduled to move in, so hopefully that can be sorted out somehow! Anyway!


So I'm slowly getting prepared, sorting out files of things I think might be useful to what I'm studying, putting things to take with me in my trunk - yes, trunk!! At the moment, my Harry Potter-stylee trunk is filled with two pairs of harem pants, a tea pot (I don't drink tea), a couple of towels, a nice pen, and a Wizard of Oz chalkboard. I think I'm well prepared! At least Cambridge isn't too far from home, so I can always pop back and get anything I've forgotten!

Filming prep is going well! We shot 3 of 15 scenes on monday, and I've started editing - its all looking good! One might need to be redone, but it's only a short scene - the battery on my camera died just as we finished it, so it was all a bit rushed and I didn't get the shots I really wanted. But the other two scenes are fab!

I'm writing another screen play - an attempt at comedy, ooh er... I can't write comedy, I can't devise comedy, so this will be interesting... But I told my friend the plot line, and he laughed (an actual laugh) so it might not be too bad!

Seeking out some actors and extras for a couple of films as well, hope that goes alright!

Have storyboarded one, but I don't know if I'm really feeling it. I might start filming and see how it goes. If not, it can always be rewritten and remade another time!

I just realised I have ended every paragraph with an exclamation mark. I must be enthusiastic today.

Anyway, now off to eat some ice cream! (and there's another)
Toodle oo,
