Night before

Well, this is it. This is the night before Saturday. Which makes it a Friday night; an exciting Friday night at that! Tomorrow is the Apple Insomnia Film Festival. This means that beginning at 7am tomorrow, I will want a lot of BAWLS. Mmmhmmm.
What it really means is that I will be having a great day tomorrow shooting a film in less than 24 hours. What makes it even more exciting is that I have a soccer game against Utah State at 10am. So it all comes down to how quickly creative can we be.
I've got an awesome team behind me; actually I would say that it's just an awesome team--no one is behind anyone else. We're gonna work hard and have some fun, and all of you that might read this, go and vote for our video! It'll be under Team L, (creative, isn't it?)
Until Sunday, we'll have some pics posted! See you then!


Coming home...

So, this entry is quite late...about 3 months late. It's hard to imagine that it's been so long since I've returned from Albania. I remember it so clearly, and yet it's such a distance away that I often forget that I've been there. But, I don't forget what I've learned there. I have, in recent weeks, seriously been missing everything about it--the people, the food, the places...even the transportation. Everything was so simple there, but so complex at the same time. I've always enjoyed foreign places, but I think I enjoy making them my home so much more.
To anybody who's reading this that has never traveled abroad, especially those who are frightened by the thought, I have one bit of advice: Go! Just go and do it! I guarantee that you'll never forget it. And don't settle for France, or Canada, or England. Really GO somewhere. Go to Egypt. Go to Turkey. Go to Madagascar. Do whatever you can to really go and see the world you live in.
On another note, even though it's been a while, I still haven't got all my Albania pics posted online. I'll be working (in my spare time, of course) to get them all descriptions and to put them up, but no promise. I've also got pics of my recent trip back east to Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and those fun states. Those'll probably come after.
This Saturday there is a film contest sponsored by Apple. I'll be entering that with the help of some friends. Hopefully this will lead to the opening of our production company. Everyone who reads this should go to apple.com/education/insomnia and with your AppleID (get one if you don't have one) vote. I'd say vote for mine, but that's selfish. Although, that doesn't mean you can't do it! We're under Team L. More info and pics on that later.
Anyways, I leave you all with this picture I took on the plane ride home. Good ol' British Airways (they rock house, btw) gave us some good laughs in the lavatory. Don't you just love ironies?
