Do I want to apologize for what I said?

Well, it can't be taken back now that it's out there. And since I don't want to apologize for my douchey rant because frankly that's how I felt, I guess all I can do now is accept that I will be made out to be a douche as well a fuck up.

We've all got a little douche in us, it just has to be pushed. With enough pushing, you'll become me.

WE'RE WRAPPED! *falls to knees and cries tears of glory*

The wrap party was pretty fun. Didn't get super duper hammered like I wanted to, but I still got drunk. And that's fine with me.

I took shots with a fetus in it. It was great.

One more day of filming on Saturday morning, and then it's wrapped.

And I will get plastered.

*tears hair out*

Things that have gone wrong with my film:

Two days into shooting, I decided I had to recast my main actress because I fucked up in casting her when she can't do this character on film. The high school, which charges us $40 an hour to pay a security and a custodian that are mandated to be there by the Miami Dade Public School System, now has to be reshot. $200 went down the drain. Not a big deal, because I was willing to make the sacrifice to get a better movie. I found a new lead (Sarah Amengual) and she's been amazing.

Then, two more days into filming with my new lead, we find out that the tapes we were filming on were corrupt. Everything is glitchy and unsalvageable. We have to reshoot those. Thanks, Sony.

My godmother, who was letting us use her bedroom, which is used for a good chunk of the movie, decided that now that all of the film was corrupt anyway, that we can find a new bedroom because she didn't like people telling her she couldn't watch TV while we were filming. Finding a girly bedroom with a bathroom near campus was NOT and will NOT be easy. She'll only let us film when nobody's home, which is essentially when everyone has class. In essence, she's crapped out on us. I screamed obscenities for three hours straight.

All of this rescheduling then causes the co-star to go crazy with all the stress, so she can't keep up with any of her schoolwork and she's not doing well in her rehearsals for Hello Dolly. She runs to four theater advisors and they all tell her to drop the film. So she does, after we've already shot with her in it, costing me ANOTHER $200 because the new scenes on good tapes were shot at the high school. Meanwhile, one the theater professors calls my producer and yells at her telling her she's the worst producer ever and it's students like her that give the Communication School a bad name, even though the actress clearly exaggerated when she was needed and he clearly didn't know what had happened to us. This makes my producer cry. I take her to Titanic and pay for her lunch and lots of beer, because she's been an amazing producer despite that douchebag's claims to the contrary.

So we're back at square one. This movie may or may not be ready for Canesfest, but I sure as hell am gonna try.

Positive notes?

Now that this co-star has dropped, the schedule has freed up for us immensely. We should be able to reshoot everything on an easier and more effective schedule, including satisfying my godmother's schedule.

Pray for me. If you can donate something to this movie, even if it's $10, I'd be very appreciative.

Ow. Migraine.

So I'm doing my movie. It's called Fabulous Fetus. It's a comedy on abortion.


If all goes well, I'll be entering it into film festivals worldwide.

AND YOU CAN BE A PART OF MAKING THIS HAPPEN! I know what you're thinking. "How can I possibly be a part?" By donating!

If we don't reach our goal in time, all of your cash gets sent back.

So now that school is finally OVER WITH DIE YOU MISERABLE FUCK, I can now sit and chill and party and play games and all that good stuff I love to do.

The first thing I did when I got back was clean my room from the disorganized mess it was because this semester has just been nuts and piling crap all over it. Adrian was on my bed while I was cleaning, when all of a sudden I banged my head against the corner of an open cabinet door, HARD, and it hurt like a bitch. And he didn't notice because he was reading and totally in his own bubble.

When he finally looked up and saw that I was in pain and I told him what happened, he looked at it and told me I had a gash on my head. So he called my mom and they started pouring rubbing alcohol on it and stuff to disinfect just in case. As Adrian was applying Neosporin to the cut, I started breathing hard and feeling woozy, and just as he was asking me if I was okay, I passed out.

I awoke and found myself on the floor held by Adrian (who had caught me), and in a daze I was like "I don't know where I am", which scared them, but then I clarified because I realized that sounded like amnesia so I said "I mean, I don't know how I got here."

That was the first time I've ever passed out in my life. Apparently it happened to me once when I was a little kid but I don't remember it.

Anyway. The cut is healed and I put ice on it so there was no swelling. But I really worried them and they keep asking if I'm okay. :P

Also, two funny things.

1. I'm walking into an Office Depot and someone is parked right outside the door, on the sidewalk, and honks for me to come over. Whilst I'm shopping for this film and in a hurry.

I go up to her and she's this old Hispanic woman and she's like "Please, I only have one leg. Could you go inside and ask for Guillermo? He has a package of mine."

So I go inside, wait three minutes to finally talk to someone in order to complete this act of benevolence. When I tell them "there's someone outside looking for Guillermo who has her package and she's old and has one leg," they tell me:

"No Guillermo works here. That one-legged woman's been parking outside and she's just been doing that for like a week."

I got played by an amputated senile Hispanic woman.

2. An inappropriate joke I was told (and laughed at hysterically). But I had to write it down and share it before I forgot it.

Q: Why do Jewish women prefer circumcised men?
A: Because they want 10% off anything they can get!

I'm doing art direction for this film, right? This means I'm in charge of props and decor and stuff like that. So an actor has a mega conflict and everything gets switched around, meaning that I have to buy a ton of flowers, originally needed for Tuesday... BY THIS SATURDAY MORNING! LOL!


Now, this wouldn't be as much of a problem if:

A) the shooting hadn't already started and I have to be there for some of it to dress the set, thus taking time away from me.

B) I wasn't in a 5-minute theater scene for Sarah Zemach's directing project that has taken, literally, 20 hours of time away from me this week, because there are consistent delays with tech and eight other individually student-directed scenes. I arrive at 6:30 and end up leaving at midnight. And I'm in the scene for 30 seconds.

Luckily, Paula, Krystina, and Lizmarie helped me for the beach scene tomorrow and gave me all their beach stuff so I didn't have to worry about getting to a pool supply store and spending part of our budget on common Florida stuff. Huge help, thank you so much! :)

So yeah. I have to start writing up a schedule for tomorrow morning of places to go shopping at/people to go borrow from. I have to get up at 7am to drop my mom off at the hospital, then get across the city to the 9am beach shoot. Then get to school at 1:25, take a final exam I've hardly studied for, pick my mom up at the hospital, and go about getting flowers all day until 7:30 where I get dressed and do the stupid show from letter B and get it over with. The call is supposed to be 6:30, but I have little make-up, and frankly, I need the time.

I stay up late and get up early to pack as much shit as possible into my days. I have finals. I have a scene from Angels in America to shoot on Monday, and I don't even know if I have the hospital room in the nursing school reserved because the lady never got back to me, and she doesn't work on Fridays or weekends, thus meaning I won't know. Ever.

*flails about and whimpers like a whiny 'mo*

EDIT: Crisis solved. The hospital canceled on the film for Saturday so now I don't have to have the flowers ready for them! *jumps in joy*
