“"Just looking at him could make me tremble. When he took my hand in his, the feeling caught me in the pit of my stomach - his hand was warm, protecting, & full of love. When he saw me at the beginning of the day & when he called me on the telephone, his first words were always, "Hello, Baby."”—
“Humphrey Bogart was buried with a small, gold whistle once part of a charm bracelet he had given to Lauren Bacall before they married. It was inscribed with a quote from their first movie together: ‘If you want anything, just whistle.’”
Why do you have to convince your parents? Can't you just do it? Is it part of a course you're doing or separate? Sorry if that's invasive.
Its okay. Its mostly money reasons. Mom pays for my school if she can otherwise I probably wouldn’t be going at all because of where I’m at financially. So I’m pretty lucky. Although I do have enough money to actually do it on my own I realized. But pretty sure I won’t have to pay because Mom seems to have calmed down a bit…..since she knows this isn’t like a random hobby thing. I’ve talked about this forever its just the place where I live isn’t really a film community.
Wow, that post was ranty but I’m the “in a rut” member of the family right now so everyone seems to have focused in on what I should or shouldn’t be doing.
There’s a screenwriting class being offered at my school. Its online and I don’t get credit for it because its continuing education…..but I need to be in this class something fierce.
Just have to convince my Mom to let me take it. And move my work schedule around.
And really, its cheaper for me to take that class then a class that I would get credit for. And its something I actually want to do which would make more sense then the stuff my family keeps on suggesting.
Because she keeps on going, “You should learn sign language and be an interpreter.”
And then my Dads all, “Be a teacher. Be a teacher. I know people. I can get you a job. You can move down here.” (Yeah Dad, you know someone who can get me a job in the career field I actually want but will you talk to him for me? Nope.)
And I’m just sitting here like, “Wow. I am 23 and I know what I want to do I just have no way of doing it.”
So really this would work out the best for everyone….
