So today was the last class day of the week. I only have class three days (Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday) and I'm already a bit tired of the routine. It's not that I don't like my class, it's just that I dread getting up knowing I'm going to be lectured for three hours on end. But that was the first week, apparently we're supposed to watch more TV as the classes go on, so that could be a good thing.
Yesterday we watched two episodes of the Bernie Mac show. I actually don't like that show at all, but the two episodes were funny. The only thing that was annoying was the fact Netflix kept buffering. *Cue horror music here*. It was bad, even worse than last semester where a YouTube video, a THREE MINUTE YouTube video took over two hours to load. TWO HOURS! Do you know how crazy I went trying to watch stuff? Yeah, you'd think you could just use another site but ohhhhh no! Buffering for any video last semester sucked and that was my terrible flashback in class yesterday when Netflix buffer sucked. Thankfully our professor acknowledged how bad it was and sympathized.
But today was even better, we watched Everybody Loves Raymond. I don't particularly like that show either, but it's interesting to see how it's a sitcom that only has one story play throughout the episode. It was the episode "No Fat" where Raymond's mother decides to go on a diet and make a healthy Thanksgiving. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time apart from watching that episode. I probably would have done the same thing Ray had done, their funny faces when they ate the tofu turkey was hysterical. I even practiced some of my own funny faces if I ate anything that bad...and got some weird looks from it as well. Otherwise, we assigned ourselves the TV shows we're going to write a episode/script for and I'm excited.
Even if I don't become a sitcom writer later in life, the ability to get experience with it is something that I'm looking forward to. It's also the reason I took the screenwriting class last semester, so I could learn how to do a movie script. It's great experience of being a writer in general and being able to get a start in all different aspects of writing in general.
Especially when it comes to writing out jokes. I mean, my sisters and I are pretty funny, but I don't want to try and force jokes or not have the characters sound like them. It shouldn't be that difficult, we're always laughing about something, even if we put each other down. Jokingly, of course. Today for example, I was--jokingly--saying that I wanted recognition for something with Mack and Mere and this is how the conversation went:
Me: I just want some recognition :P *preens like a peacock*
Mere: you're such a idiot
Mere: Mack, how could you put up sharing a room with her until high school?
Mack: i ignored her most of the time
Me: :D <---that was a laughing emoticon, btw
So my day was pretty chilled and I'm basking in the fact that I have the day off tomorrow. So that means I have all day to write if I want to or to just laze around and relax. Which, of course, is the beauty of only having class three days a week. *Throws hands into the air and does a victory dance*.
I'm excited for the weekend, I'm excited for the class, and I'm really excited for what the rest of the school year has to offer. I know the year is going to fly by and we're going to graduate soon, and I just want to have a blast for my last semester.
I had a great day, today. I hope you all did too.
Loves anything red. Rock music, playing the guitar, drawing, writing, tattoos, and sports are some of my interests and hobbies. I like to laugh, I like to think I'm funny. I talk a lot...just a warning.
