Filmmaking

This one kind of goes along with animation. I really want to learn to direct and make movies. Recently I’ve gotten my hands into script writing which I absolutely love even though it’s much more time consuming than I thought. My friends and I started writing a horror movie and I’ve taken on the role of directing the film and subsequently have been writing most of the script. I would love to just even write movies and not film them myself, but it comes back to my anti-creative nature and complete hopelessness when it comes to being inspired and creating a story.

Before this project I never knew how important dialogue is and how much time it takes up. We are about 3 scenes in and the script is already like 30 pages and we have only killed off one character! I look forward to working on the script more once finals are over and trying my hand a directing…

Animation

I think this one is probably one of my dreams that is very unlikely to be achieved because it requires an amazing amount of time and learning and software and creativity. I really want to learn how to animate because I think it’s just astounding how something generated on a computer can be so life-like and so human and so beautiful. I think learning to animate would give even more appreciation to animators and animated things.

Travel

Isn’t it everyone’s dream to travel?

This one is so clichéd, but one of my biggest dreams is to travel, pretty much anywhere. I want to go to Italy and England and Ireland and Greece and Japan and Australia and New Zealand and Maine and Hawaii and so many other places in and out of the US. I think there are just so many beautiful places to see and experience and I really want that opportunity one day.

Nails

One my more recently developed addictions is one of painting my nails. For some reason all of a sudden this year I just got really really into it and now I have these silly aspirations of painting my nails in awesome and crazy ways. I’ve been trying to get a start on this, but a few of my nails started peeling and became really thin and therefore much more easily breakable (that wording is weird) so I have yet to totally experiment yet but soon!

Dance

One thing that I know I wish I could do is dance. Dancers are always so much fun to watch and they always seem like they are having fun. I tried ballet a few years ago, but to no real avail… I really wanted to get to pointe immediately but soon found that it could take years and so I stopped showing up. This is bad habit of mine I enjoyed ballet but because I couldn’t get instant gratification I didn’t want to continue. In middle school I took a short ballroom dance class which I absolutely loved (even though it was awkward because there were high schoolers in it😄 ) so I think that one day I’d love to take another ballroom dance class because it is something that I really loved to do and would really love to do again.
