Thoughts and Happenings…

Barely Making it Off the Interstate…

Wow, ok so I haven’t had a really stressful day in a long time, actually I don’t get stressed a lot at all I usually get more focused. But today is in the running of kind of a stressful day. So I get up this morning like I always do and take my shower get ready for work get in my car start driving right?…. Well about half way to work (about a 25 min drive to work) I realize my car (actually my brothers car) is acting kind of funny. I look at the gages and the battery gage is all the way down and the next thing I know BOOM, all of the electronics shut off. But the car is still running praise God. I get over into the right lane just in case the rest of the car decides to shut down but it ran ok cause I kept it reved up! Well I get off my exit just waiting for my car to die but it doesn’t it allows me to get a mile away from work when bla buh bluh bluh eeewwwwwwwwwww (that is a car dying soung) so I coast into a parking lot and do the whole calling AAA thing and to get it toed and calling my boss telling them I would be late. Needless to say I finally got it toed and actually got it worked on today. It did cost my whole pay check for the week but at least i have a car now. If I would have gone to a main dealership I probably would have had to sell my right arm or something to pay for it.

 

A nice thing that did happen today was my boss was nice enough to come pick me up. I was already behind on work and had more work given to me when I arrived so needless to say I am still working and it is 7 tonight. I am waiting on some drives to finish up and then I need to make some DVD’s but I might have to wait till tomorrow cause my eyes are getting really tiered of looking at the computer screens.

Not sure what I will do tonight… I might just go eat at Fridays where my friend works, well I might not really eat but I will go socialize with him, then go home and eat some cereal and go to bed. that would be nice Bed YES I think I might try to do that but who is to say I will actually do it, probably will find somethig else to distract me. I just pray that tomorrow will not be as crazy for me as today…

Going to the Movie Set…

Ok so today is another day of work. For those of you who don’t know, I have this awesome job as the Editing assistant for the new Hannah Montana Movie. I usually get in to work about the same time everyday around 8:30 and then as the day goes a long depends on when I get to leave. But let me tell you this is an experience I will never forget. i mean not that many people get to say they have worked on a feature film before, well at least in my family that is.

Well today was a fun day cause I got to go to set again just like a few other times except this time it was really close to our office. It was actually the Cool Springs Mall in Franklin TN. The fun thing was about this set experience was that there was so many people there trying to get a glimpse of a star and trying to get in and not be hurried out of the store and for me I got to walk right in, act like I was somebody and watch them film this scene. I don’t know it was just a lot of fun for me. Now I am getting ready to go work out for the day cause I really need to gain all my muscle back and get back into shape if you know what I mean.

Rainy Memorial Day

Ok so it is Memorial Day and I had plans with my friends to hang out, go to a Water Park and just be outside all day long and get tan. Well lets just say that it is raining here and I have been inside all day. I tried to sit down and write a song or two but that didn’t work out, no friends would come over to hang out, so it has just been one of those lonely days. But I am eating cookies and watching the Office so I guess it is alright. I hope your day has been better though…

Oh Yes I Am Going…

Indiana JonesOk so today is the day of the new Opening movie “Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” and I am excited. The past few days I have been watching all of the old Indiana Jones movies and I actually forgot how much I really enjoyed them. I think my favorites would have to be “Raiders of the Lost Ark’ and “The Last Crusade” I am not that big of a fan of the “Temple of Doom” but it is still a Indiana Jones Movie which puts it up on the top of my list. I got a few friends going with me tonight, it is going to be a lot of fun just hanging out and going to the movies, bt the worst part is the anticipation. I am sitting at work right now, on a break of course, just ready for the evening to come to watch the movie, but I know it will come soon enough.

 

Have you ever wanted to be a Super Hero or just someone in a movie. Of course most of us have. i mean my most recent is wanting the suite off of Iron Man so I can get the girl and save lives and be extra awesome like that. But with my luck no one quite carried them yet to have. I am sure after seeing Indiana Jones tonight I will want to have a whip, fight off bad guys, hate snakes, get the girl, and find a unique treasure all within 2 hours. Yeah I think it could happen, well if not there is always Halloween where I can dress like him. 

 

All in all I am just excited about this movie cause I remember watching these movies with my family especially brother and dad growing up. It will bring back a lot of great memories with them. Everyone is welcome to come out tonight if you want at 7:15 at the 100 Oaks Theatre (Regal 27) to see it with us if you would like. If not until next…

Another Day of Work…

So this week has been a full week of work. Basically since Monday morning till now I have worked everyday. But I have gotten to do a few fun things this week. Like on Tues night I got a chance to go to Belmont’s last Baseball home game, I did have to leave (sorry Brian) early but I did get to go to the Hannah Montana Movie set and watch a few scenes being filmed. It was a lot of fun. Wed I heard my incredible friend Parker sing at the Indigo Hotel. She did so great and she sang one of my favorite songs she wrote which was written about a Bathtub! Incredible if you have a chance to go see her do it!

 

Lets see last night I didn’t do much I just went home a cleaned, I know something everyone wants to do, but I did rent the Alvin and the Chipmunks , and Bourne Ultimatium. YEAH TWO GREAT MOVIES!!!!! I watched both of them last night. So now I am still at work on a break waiting to take a DVD to set then maybe I can get home to see Cronicles of Narnia with my Dad and Bro tonight before my brother Jordan leaves for the summer. He is going to CA to lead worship and be the media arts supervisor for JH Ranch all summer. I am kind of jealous but really excited for him.

 

But that is really it for the week. Nothing really exciting but this weekend will be nice and relaxing I hope. We will see…

Movie Wedding…

Ok so I just got back yesterday morning from one of those incredible crazy full weekends that we all sometimes go through, yeah well that was one of those for me. You see something that a lot of people don’t know is I just recently got hired as the Assistant to the editing producers of the new Hannah Montana Movie. Yeah well it is pretty cool if I don’t say so myself. But I started last week on this movie and I found out that I was not going to be able to sing in my cousins wedding. Well something you all need to know about my cousin CINDY is, she is so awesome I love her to death and so does everyone else.  She has the sweetest heart and I promise you I will marry someone just like her one day. So needless too say I was pretty upset about not being able to go. Well Thursday before the wedding, which was going to be on Saturday, I was able to talk to my boss to see if I was going to have to work the weekend. He said no, and when I told him I was in a wedding he instead on me leaving when I needed to on Fri to get to it. My boss is AWESOME! So this is where the cool stuff starts.

 

So right from work I go strait to the airport to fly down to WEST PALM BEACH already just excited to go there. I arrive and even though I missed most of the reh. Dinner I still got to see where they had it and it was so awesome. Well my family and I go back to our hotel, THE BREAKERS, one of the nicest hotels in West Palm to sleep the night away before the big wedding day. Well we wake up the next morning to the sound of my little cousins banging on the door telling us we need to go to the pool and beach with them. So of course we get up, 2 hours later, to meet them down at the pool. It was so nice to be with part of the family there for the day but time rolled around and we had to start getting ready for the wedding. The funny thing was for me, was that my dad had to buy a shirt for me to wear with my suite and I just let him pick it out. So I see it and it doesn’t look too bad, but when I put it on it was a parachute and I looked like ALADIN. So of course my brother, is is the best brother in the world, started to make fun of me.

 

Well the wedding was a concervative wedding, and I got to sing with my brother, but the reception, well lets just say ASTRONOMICAL!!! It was like you would see it in a movie. Everything was perfect. We had a pre reception outside next to the ocean on like golf grass where everyone could socialize, then we all went into this nice big room to have a reception dinner. Well it was incredible and then there was dancing till midnight. Yes I had so much fun and I know the rest of the family did as well. So that concluded Sat night. Almost done I promise: Then we wake up early and my family get to go to Disney World!!!!! The Happiest Place on earth! So we make a full day of going to MGM and Magic Kingdom and try to go on all the rides and YES it was so much fun.

 

At the end of the night I looked back on the weekend and I was so glad I was able to go to FL for the weekend even though I had to wake up at 4 to get to my flight to go home, I almost missed it by the way, Orlando airport not a place for fast check ins if you ask me. My family is still there having a grand ole happy fun time without me, but at least I was able to e with them for a little while. So that concludes my weekend of craziness….

Finals are Almost Done

So I had 3 Finals today. After telling most people that they were like, dude really that sucks, but to be really honest it wasn’t that bad. I have had worse I think at least. Now I am sitting here on my couch trying to finish like 3 songs that I have yet to finish in forever, and wondering about certain stupid things that I know will be long forgotten probably in the near future. I mean isn’t that how it normally goes. You start to worry about something but then you come to realize there was no since in worrying about it in the first place cause it all works out in the end.

I am supposed to get my freakin shoulder X-rayed tonight cause it is still separated, at least it feels like it. I am just ready for this thing to get better so I can go on with my normal life and work out, play ball and stuff like that you know. So hopefully i will find out what I can do to make it feel better.  

I have one more final tomorrow, Business Ethics. Not looking forward to that final but I do really like the teacher Dr. Hollis. He is a nice man and a great Ethics teacher. I would tell anyone to take him as there professor. Other than that it is a delima of going home for a day to see my fam or staying here and go hang with friends before they all leave for home. Decisions Decisions hmmmm not sure what I will do yet but I do know that I need to stop focusing on a certain thing and let it go so that is what I am going to do.
