All he wanted was some flowers.
Okay Matt is one of the best human beings ever.
I sent Matt a message on facebook about some personal stuff. And while he easily could have just disregarded it, he didn’t and he sent a nice message in response.
(I censored a bit of it because it seemed a little personal. If he shared it with me I’m guessing it’s not too bad but I just don’t want to be a dick and share stuff like that if it’s not cool.)
I have, like, three hours to finish this screenplay and I still have no idea what I am doing.
Well the good news is that most of the changes are small. Give the girl and the waiter names. Intro the head chief. Mix up the page long convos on page 2-4. And cut down on plantain’s dialog later in the play.
Would anyone out there be willing to read my first act of a screenplay I wrote? It’s absolute crap (sorry) but I really need feedback and ideas for fixing it according to the professor’s notes and other things that may be wrong with it.
If I don’t get it re-written and turned in before this Friday I won’t be able to graduate!!! I’m not sure there is much I can do in return, but I will try!!
Shoot it to me I will reread it when I get the chance at work, today.
The girl of my dreams, the love of my life, is getting married tomorrow.
All my dreams for the future will be dead by Saturday. There is no longer any point to my life.
I know that really sucks, but I got a couple of good reason why your REAL dreams aren’t going to end and that your life has some point other than the Save Point (yeah, I know its inappropriate to make that bad joke, but I am an asshole and maybe it was kinda funny) But if you are still reading this then listen up.
1. Dreams Should Never Be People
“People Suck” its what an old friend used to tell me, and its pretty true. I do like to believe that their are lots of people that rock and some that suck , but they are still good people. People are unpredictable, selfish, stupid, random, and force of will. That’s a lot of unknown chaos to put into a dream. That’s a lot of shit you can’t control and shouldn’t. Which is my next point!
2. For a Feminist, that’s hell a odd that getting this girl is your “dreams”
When you take a person and make it your “dream” You kinda objectify them. Dreams are goals and achievements, what ever they maybe. Fight an injustice, climb a mountain, get drunk with Brad Jones, or sit on your ass and watch all of one piece and I mean all. Dreams can be a lot of things, but they never should be something that objectifies or suppresses a person’s way of life. Your dream life with her no matter how good or right it can be may not be the life she wants. She may want something different, not better, but different. Even if its destructive or shitty for her, that’s her choice. As I said people can be fucking retards, let them. You need to only worry about your real dreams. And besides one of the most important part about relationships is to be able share a life and dreams. And you know what 7 Billion people, its not that hard to find someone who may have the same dreams.
3. There are tons of People, you can always find someone!
Lots a people, and if you live your life going just her, well fuck that’s really making your life tricky. I know I had huge hang ups about this a well. But I am really fucking insecure, granted self improvement and seeking professional help, helps a lot. And I know one day I will find someone, they may not be exactly what I want or was looking for. But I need to stop being a little bitch about it. And fucking enjoy my life with this person. We don’t know what works for us, but there gong to be a good handful of ones that will work find. Its still special, because damn son it’s a lot of fucking work to make it work no matter how perfect of a match she is, why see part one. Besides having your shit together not just makes it easier but makes you hella attractive.
4. There is always someone better.
I am going to sound like a super asshole, but its for your own good and because I love you man (
no homo, all of the homo). But you can do so much better. Because there is a better match out there I know it. I am not saying that she sucks, but you still need to find yourself and define who you are first. Because their is someone out there for this “poisoned book” but you need to figure yourself out first before you really know who is best for you.
5. Dreams and shit
It’s like 1AM so, I am going to wrap this up. You need to find your real dream and stuff. I am tried you know what I mean. I think the below pic sums it up. Aka you keep letting this stuff bring you down, me and the others are going to have to go Water 7/Enis Lobby on your ass.
You are a hella cool friend, and at your best when you DON’T let this stuff hold you down.
Love, because I love you Bro.
Your Crazy Ass Friend
P.S. We need to hang out, give me a call any time!
i don’t think i can do this. it’s just too much. but, the consequences of not finishing are severe. and that only makes it worse
I may not have the best advice or be the best person to give you advice, but I remember those times when you were in similar situations. Granted, there is a lot on the line, but regardless of how bad it got you came out OK and even on top good majority of the time. So as much as you think your fucked. Two things are going to happen. One, you embrace that you can succeed or at least do OK and come out OK or even on top. Or two, you panic and worry and you still come out OK. I know it’s cheese to say believe in yourself. But seriously you need to fucking believe in yourself. You be surprised of what YOU are capable of.
it’s not L1 and R1 because fuck you
it’s not L2 and R2 because fuck you
IT’S L1 AND R2 BECAUSE….FUCK YOU!
