I’ve been taking this Commercial class the last couple weeks. It’s taught by Mike Pointer. I just have to say that he’s great. He’s completely honest and is not afraid to speak his mind. He won’t sugercoat anything. And he doesn’t do it in a negative way either. That’s the great thing, in an industry that’s full of sex and violence, he’s a breath of fresh air. I’ve gotten motivated again to push my Acting career forward.
I’m still in shock over what happened at Virginia Tech. I don’t know what to say. It’s unbelievable the minds that are out there in this world. How could someone justify that it’s OK to ruin other lives because he doesn’t like his own life and thinks everyone’s out to get him. I sometimes also feel like the world is against me, but I also know that it deosn’t matter what the world thinks of me. I don’t live my life for the world. I live my life to worship and glorify God.
My prayers go out to all the people that have been affected by this tragic event.
So I was gone for 10 days to Japan and Taiwan. First time I’ve been to Japan since I was 2 years old. It was a great time. It was a big family trip with the 9 family members and a few of my parents’ friends. We did a 5 day tour. We basically went around the outskirts of Tokyo into the countryside. We went along the coast and saw Temples, Cherry Blossoms, Waterfalls and Japanese people. I took over 500 pictures while in Japan. We had traditional Japanese breakfasts, lunches and dinners. They’re basically 8-10 different items for each meal. Doesn’t look like much when you get it, but it’ll fill you right up.
After Japan, we went to Taiwan for 5 days. We just saw family and ate a lot. Really didn’t do much in Taiwan except for eating and shopping for gifts for friends and myself. Stuff is cheaper there (Made in Taiwan). All in all, it was definitely a great time. Everything was just so packed in though and I really didn’t get much time to take a breather. But at least we didn’t waste any time just sitting around.
