At midnight I was still doing my journal entry. After that I sent some emails & was on Tumblr for a while. Then I watched 2 episodes of Grey’s & an episode of The Twilight Zone.
I woke up at 9 & answered some texts from friends about filming. Then I watched the new episode of Talking Dead, which was very entertaining. After that I watched My Cat From Hell & Jessa came over. I laid with her until she went to bed & then I did some Mach editing. Somewhere in the middle of that Simek stopped by & gave me the lights for filming tomorrow. We talked for a bit & then I went back to editing. Then Kate called in the middle of editing to give me a few things to change in the video I edited for her. So I edited the video really fast & went back to Mach. After that I woke up Jessa & watched It Takes Two for a while & then a little of Back To The Future while we got ready to leave.
We went to Zuki to pick up some sushi for Allison & me. Then we went to Paneras to get food for Jessa. Then we picked up Allison & went to a park by her house. We gave her her birthday presents, which she loved & then we ate our food. We talked for a while & then went for a very long walk to “Florida.” Then we went to 7-11 & got some slushies. We went to Allison’s afterwards to watch some How I Met Your Mother & an episode of Whitney.
People I interacted with: Abby, Devin, Jessa, Simek, Mom, Dad, Allison, & Mama Walsh.

At midnight I was watching Grey’s Anatomy until I felt like my eyes were gonna burn out of my skull.
I woke up at 9 from Jessa calling me. So I got Abby up & dressed & we all went to Mattina Cafe for breakfast. I got some yummy corned beef hash. When we came back home Jessa & I watched an episode of Grey’s. Well she started the episode but fell asleep. While she slept I was on the computer. I did some Mach scheduling & emailed Stage Door Dance Academy. After that I uploaded the balloon ceremony at the commons to my Vimeo. Then I did some Dark Knight Rises research & looked up some cool gift ideas for Allison. Then I got tired of looking at the computer screen so I laid down for a little bit.
Then I got a call from Don saying it was cool for me to come by & give him the Balloon Ceremony. So I went to the village hall & showed it to him, compressed it, & talked with him for a bit. Then I came back home & watched Income Property with Jessa. Then we ate dinner with my parents & talked for a while. After that I edited some of the footage from Kate’s Beauty Beneath the Dirt premiere. Then I got ready to leave with Jessa. We went to Party City just to look around & we found some cool stuff. Then we went to Walmart to look around as well.
When we were leaving there was a freak storm & we had to run to the car in the rain. It was kinda fun. Jessa never takes bags & today she did, so when I was running to the car she didn’t have the doors unlocked because she had crap in her hands & didn’t press the button enough times. Silly her :P Then we came back tom my house & unpacked our shopping bags. Then we made a snack & watched an episode of Grey’s. Now I’m doing my journal & we’re gonna watch another episode of Grey’s before bed.

I woke up at 7:30ish & sat on my phone for a while. Then I got up & got ready to leave. I left her house at 8:35 & walked to the blue line. Then I took the blue line, then walked to the Metra. On the train I finished reading Batman: Knightfall. When I got into New Lenox Devin & his friend picked me up & we came home. As soon as I got home I made some lucy because I was sooo hungry. I made Abby food as well, we had chicken nuggets. While I ate I watched The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. After the movie I was on Tumblr for a little while & then got off to watch some TV. I watched two episodes of Conan that were hilarious then 2 new episodes of Storage Wars. When those were done I watched Waterworld & sat on the computer. I also watched a blog from The Hobbit. Then I sat down & watched Secondhand Lions. Now I’m watching Grey’s Anatomy & doing this journal entry.

At midnight I was watching Grey’s Anatomy. After that I did my journal for Monday & then I was on Tumblr for a while until I got off to watch Friends.
I woke up at 10am & started getting ready to leave for the day. Then Devin, Chloe, & Abby drove me to the train station. When I got on the train I started watching The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, but I let it load at home & it didn’t go all the way through. So I had to turn it off & I watched the last 40 minutes of Inception. When I got off the train I walked to the Blur Line & got on. When I got to Milwaukee & Division I stopped at Wendy’s to pee & then walked to Kate’s. But I didn’t want to sit on her stoop to wait so I stopped at the hospital down the block. I waited there for about 20 minutes because I was early. Then I went to Kate’s. Then we chatted a little about my movie futures as well as how excited I was to see hers. Then we cut some fliers for her movie & started getting ready to go. It took us a long time to get there & when we did we set up some stuff & went over who was going to be doing what. Then people started showing up & I did some filming. Then we showed my short film as well as a few others before watching Beauty Beneath The Dirt. After the movie we talked with some people about our projects & then left the theater. When we got to Kate’s it was really late, so i got in my PJ’s & did my journal.
Jessa I love you to that planet that was Pluto, around a couple times, & back. Trust me tonight. *smooches

At midnight I was listening to a radio interview of Kate promoting Beauty Beneath the Dirt. After that I watched a bunch of short films online, some good, some awful. When I was done with that I was on Tumblr or a while until I got ready for bed. While I was going to bed I started watching Police Academy 5.
I woke up at 8 to get Abby ready. I got her on the bus & then I was on the computer for a while watching “How it Should Have Ended” videos. Then I sent & read some emails. Afterwards I took a shower. After my shower I tried to find a download of Warrior because I wanted to watch it with Devin. When I finally got it I couldn’t burn it to a DVD or put it on an iPod. So I had to convert it to a PS3 file & then put it on a hard drive to play on my Playstation. After the movie I went on Tumblr for a while & then watched a couple episodes of Rookies on Netflix. Then I was on Tumblr some more. Now I’m doing my journal & I’m gonna watch some Grey’s after this.

At midnight I was doing my journal. Then I pooped, looked for CD’s in my basement, & got a snack. Then I Uploaded all the Cd’s I found. I also started downloading some songs. Then I fixed my phone because I wasn’t able to set a notification ringtone. Then I made some ringtones to put on my phone. When I was going to bed I started watching America’s Funniest Videos.
I woke up at noon & finished AFV, then I watched Gossip Girl, which was pretty good, I’m nervous about the finale. Then I showered, shaved, & made lunch. I was gonna start Real Steel before eating, but Kate texted me asking to call her. So I did & she told me she’d show Not Alone with her movie “Beauty Beneath The Dirt” if I’d document the night for her. So on June 5th I’ll be downtown. Then I watched Real Steel. After the movie I went on Tumblr for a while & then I organized all the music I downloaded. After that I wanted to start designing a poster for my short, so I put on Back To The Future so I have something on in the background I could ignore, but I ended up watching the whole thing. After that I went to McDonald’s to get Abby some dinner. When I came back I put on BTTF: 2 & started my design. Then I put on BTTF: 3.

Sunday Apr. 29th 2012
At midnight, I was finishing up The Avengers. After that I went on Tumblr for a little while & then put on the Machinist while I was going to bed.
I woke up at 8:25 & got ready to go to Rich’s house for the Management of Love & Lust photo shoot. When I got there I said hello to everyone & we took pictures. It was pretty cool, we all wore black, but it reminded me of the Modern Family season 2 DVD cover. After the shoot we all went to Grand China Buffet for lunch. It was really good & I got full kinda fast because of all the sushi I ate. When we were leaving to pay we found out that on Sundays they double their prices. It was $14.60, I definitely didn’t eat that much food, so I was pissed that I spent that much. After eating I came home & finished watched The Machinist & took a 45 minute nap.
When I got up I watched the special features for The Machinist & then started writing. I fixed up a lot of stuff as well as wrote some new stuff. I’m really liking how it’s turning out with all the new stuff I’m adding in. I just hope I can make the darn movie. I had dinner with my parents. We had hot dogs from the grill & we talked about how Devin messed up one of our 2 cars while backing out of a friends driveway & hit his friends dads Camero. After that I went on the computer for a little bit & then started writing some more. I’m pretty tired of looking at the computer screen, but I want to force myself to write as much as I can instead of laying down.

Monday Mar. 19th 2012
At midnight I was driving home from a night of filming. I was more than likely fist pumping to some song really loud. When I got home I did my journal & then Jessa came over to stay the night. We got a snack & then we watched the awesome season finale of The Walking Dead. Then we went to bed.
I woke up at 7:45 because Devin needed a ride to school. So I did that really fast. Then I came home & woke up Abby to get her ready for school. When I was done watching her I took a shower & then I decided to cut my hair. it hasn’t been cut for a long time because of my role in Kevin’s movie. Then I went on tumblr for a while just saving drafts & listening to music. Then I called Marcus for my friend Kate to find out about renting a theater. Then I started watching Chronicle, I got through 30 minutes & I like it so far. Then it was time for me to wake up Jessa, so I woke her up & I watched Talking Dead, then I watched AFV. After those I took a 6 minute nap & then got up to make lunch with Jessa. Then I picked Devin up from school because he didn’t have a ride. When I got home I watched some House Crashers & played Draw Something. Then we decided that we wanted to go to Target to get some shopping dome & get presents for my cousin Maria’s baby shower next weekend. We came back home after that & I watched the last half of The Social Network. Then we decided that we wanted to go to IKEA again to get some more shelves & other stuff. So we did that, then came back home & made some dinner. We had cheese raviolis while we watched Cupcake Wars. After that I watched a little Conan & then went on Tumblr.

Saturday Feb. 25th, 2012
I was doing my journal entry at midnight, which then turned into 2hrs of Tumblr/Facebook time. Then I watched only 1 episode of Jersey Shore because I was too tired.
I set my alarm for 8:55 because I had a New Lenox TV Meeting to go to. So I got ready & went to the Village Hall. We had donuts, orange juice, coffee, & a ton of other stuff. We had our meeting & it went very well. Something we discussed that I disagree with is the fact that you have to be 25 to hold the kay to the place. The key basically allows you to enter the building at your convenience. I tape board meeting in the village hall & it would save me some time walking all the way to the other doors I use. I also take out equipment often & I could drop it off after hours at my convenience rather than waiting for Don to be in the studio. You also have the responsibility of having to let other volunteers in if they need to get in. Me being the closest volunteer I think I should have one because for he most part I’m always free & easy to contact. So I’m a little upset that the age is 25. But over than that it went well.
When we were done with that I taught a little editing class to some of the volunteers. Then I also showed some of them the behind the scenes footage for Not Alone. They are all very into the story & can’t wait to see what I make this summer. After the meeting I came home & started to clean up my room a bit because I knew I was gonna have people over. The first person to show up was Kate. Kevin asked her to come early to discuss distribution stuff & it went well. I can’t wait to apply some of the things she told me to my own films. Then Rich & Britt came and we started getting some stuff ready for filming because Kevin was running late. When we started filming everything was going smoothly. A little cold but smooth. We had some inside stuff & I also finally got to film something for the movie.
People I interacted with: Don, Dean, John, Kurt, Dad, Mom, Abby, Kate, Rich, Britt, Kevin, Tom, Nick, Lauren.
