My meeting was lame. The lady said I didn't have an appointment, then I was all, "Yeah I do." Then she let me in.

Grad school sounds f*cking stupid and would likely put me in considerable debt. Might just peace on that idea and go for broke on my dreams.

I've always been advised that you can get grad school paid for though if you apply for it, because usually only those that get admitted to it are the ones they really want unlike undergrad.

My friend is doing that, although he's an engineer. So I asked her about Teaching Assistant stuff and other jobs, and she said they're highly competitive positions even after you're accepted. If I didn't have to worry, I'd probably do that, but I don't want to go from only owing 10k to 80k.

If you're phone goes online and can stream video adequately with the free wifi or wifi you pay for.

I totally and completely agree with you on that. I just wanted to make sure you knew before you were like **** that.

Yeah thanks. It seems like most that I'd go into in the film world also don't give out financial aid.

If I went to the American Film Institute I'd be working my dick off for two years for 40k of debt a year. The question is if the connections are worth it... When I could theoretically take classes for free or relatively cheap at a comedy theater, become friends with those people and work with them on stuff. Like half of sitcom writers seem to come out of the Upright Citizens Brigade/Second City theater now.

I'd do that. I mean if making connections gets you nowhere, you can try grad school and see what happens. But if grad school doesn't work you've went into a humongous amount of debt, and have to pay it off.

That's what I was thinking. It'll probably be more fun at least.

Hanging out with comics and improvisers >>>>>> 90 hour work weeks with high strung a-holes.

The grad school idea was a was to legitimize the move to another state (and my parents might think it's safer). But I don't need to trick myself. I just need to sack up and do it haha.

Exactly. At least you'll have a blast if you get nowhere. So it makes the time wasted at least enjoyable.

Christmas unis are trash. Whoever the NBA hired to do the specialty jerseys like 4 years ago needs to be fired.

I hate sleeve jerseys so much. It's just idiotic. I wish some players would voice negative opinions on them so they hopefully stop.

Also, I watched Supernatural. It was pretty solid. That moment where Cas has the rose and walks in the door is super heartbreaking.

Thor: the dark world was disappointing.

Pretty poor in comparison to the first, I felt it was just meh.

Instead of being captivated, I found myself just thinking of stuff and wondering when it would end and yeah. Not worth watching.

Thor 2 was a fun movie. A little more humorous than I thought it would be.
