Hows it goin?
So that's it, the class of 2010, minus a couple of people. When this photo was posted on facebook it sparked the longest and dullest facebook chat that has ever taken place. If you are brave you can read it. I have copied and pasted it at the end of this post. It's very long, and one girl seems unusually pleased that I called her a moron.
She may have thought I was joking.
So school is now over for the summer, all my work is done, and if you hadn't already heard, I did rather well. I was incredibly chuffed at my final grade. More than once over the past year I had considered quitting school. I am glad I stuck with it. My film is done, as you may have heard, I hate the bloody thing. It's not very entertaining, but it's very well shot.
The most recent rave review came from Sean Bate, who also stars in the film.
I particularly like Stevo's "I'm not gay by the way" outburst.
I will put my film on you tube eventually, I am waiting for my classmate Struan to upload his first. I have two lines in my film that directly reference his, so in some ways my film is an unofficial sequel to his. And just like many sequels, my film is vastly inferior to the first.
Once Struan pull's his finger out and uploads his film, I'll put both of our productions on the blog.
Last Thursday we had our final day in class, and we were meant to be showing our films on the big screen, just for the class. Out of 14 students only 8 films got shown. The rest were either not finished, or not yet burned to DVD. I was quite sad as I really wanted to see some of the films that my classmates had been making. Including the film that Sol made involving me touching another man in a lift. Sol didn't make it into class in time to do any editing or burn his disc on Thursday morning. He had a very good reason tho, he was waiting in line for the new i-phone. And if that's not a good reason, I don't know what is!
Did you know that the new i-phone 4 has several apps that aren't advertised?
If you can't see the video above then stop reading this crap on facebook and CLICK HERE.
I suggested that some people in the class deserved to fail for the lack of a completed film.
Some people may have thought I was joking.
Some people did have genuine reasons for not being able to have a finished product, but a couple of people just pissed around and wasted time instead of getting on with the work. Some people came into class and sorted out facebook, twitter, msn, bollocks before getting on with proper work.
So they've only got themselves to blame. In some cases genuine delays did occur and I don't want to sound like an arse hole. Some people have genuine reasons for not having completed a film, but others are just too busy getting drunk or just too lazy to do anything.
Next year we get put into production groups of 4 or 5 people, I am quite scared about this. Everyone returning for the second year had an interview with the course leader a few weeks ago. When I had mine I made it clear that there are certain people in the class who I do NOT want to work with. If I get stuck with someone who won't put in the effort then I'll go mental.
Feckin hell I'm a miserable moaning git aren't I?
I think it's cos I'm getting older. (I turn 28 tomorrow, but technically this should be my best year)
So summer is here, and what the fook am I gonna do now? I am already struggling for cash and I have only been to one of the 4 weddings I have this summer.
I have entered into negotiations with my boss for more hours, it means dropping my hourly rate but more hours, so in the longterm that means more cash. In theory. Now I just need to get some more business in the restaurant to justify me working. Last night was the quietest Saturday night I have ever worked, anywhere.
In the event that work doesn't get busier and I don't get any more hours, I do have a back up plan. When I realised that summer was rapidly approaching and I would have no student loan to support me, I made an investment. An investment to help me secure a safe and secure financial future.
I bought an oversize bottle of carlsberg and started putting in all my change. I think within a few weeks it will be full and I'll have more than enough money, probably enough to buy myself a private jet or at least a yacht.
So summer is here, to celebrate I recently invested in a brand new pair of shorts. Now I just need to find something to amuse myself for the next 8 weeks.
I hope all my classmates have a great summer, I will miss some of you.
Here are some pics taken throughout the year.

Oh and for those of you who bothered to read this far, here's the incredibly long and dull facebook conversation I mentioned at the beginning of this post.
You don't have to read it, so don't come moaning to me later when you say it's dull.
Thats All For Now
Until Next Time
Have A Nice
