When I graduated from high school I knew that I only had four more years until I would finally be done trying to learn how to be an adult and make a living on my own. I really thought that is what I would learn in college. So far, it is not working out like I had planned. I am already a sophomore and I don’t feel like I am getting my money’s worth out of my college classes. I know everyone has to take the basic classes in the first few years, but most of us already know everything that our professors are trying to teach us.
But there is one bright light in my class schedule and that is my film making class. Normally I wouldn’t be able to take this class for a few more years, but I was lucky that a spot opened up and it was at just the right time to fit into my schedule. I never thought that I would be interested in film making, but I was wrong. As it turns out I do have a creative side to my personality. I thought maybe I was destined to be stuck in a boring desk job the rest of my life just like those in my family before me.
This film making class has changed my idea of being a grown up in many ways. I have learned that you can work hard and do something fun and love it all the while being an adult with a real job. I know that not everyone can earn a great living making films, but I know that it is something that I want to try. I can’t wait for my class to my first project and I really can’t wait until I get to start my next film making project!
