Guess the cat's out of the bag.

I'm sure by now most of you have heard that Pat and I are getting a divorce. I know its tacky to just post this in a blog, but its so much easier than talking one-on-one with everyone explaining all the reasons why, and the hugs and the tears. Pat really is a good person, but we just couldn't make it work, I really hope that none of you think less of him after this. I am having a pretty hard time with this, but I'll be ok. Please don't worry about me.

Short Film

Here's the link to our short film :D:D

We entered into the guerrilla film compeition this year. the way the competition works, is they give you a theme, and you have three weeks to write, shoot, and edit your film. I was lucky enough to hae some great friends helping me out, and some amazing actors who agreed to the movie literally last minute.

I am the first girl in our area to enter the competition, adn we came in second out of twelve groups. I had a ton of fun making it, so I hope you enjoy it :D

Long day of filming...

We filmed all day yesterday for our film we're entering in the Guerrilla film competition.

it only took us about 7 hours from setup to cleanup. I was so lucky because everything just sort of fell into place. We got actual actors to play the main parts, who all agreed to it,literally the night before the shoot. a girl in my screenwriting class does stage makeup, and a couple hours before we filmed, she agreed to come. We ended up not having a camera to film with, so my friend JAred saved the day and got one for us.

I was really worried about how things were going to go, because I had to drastically change the screenplay the night before the shoot, but I am even more excited now than I was before!

I can't give away any parts of the movie, but let's just say I don't think I'll be able to get the smell out of my clothes for a while...

if you guys want to see it, it's on October 30th, 6:00pm at the Electric Theatre. Tickets are only $2

Fearing Love

I've been taking a screenwriting class in school, and I LOVE it. I've been working on a script called Fearing Love. Here is a little excerpt from the opening scene. The main people are in their teens when this part of the story takes place. Keep in mind this is a very ROUGH, rough draft. I'm still editing, and tweaking it. thanks for reading! :D
p.s. its not in a perfect script format, because this blogger kinda sucks, but enjoy :D



Several kids, about 16 years old, dressed in private school uniforms file onto the bus. Two boys JON and SHANE walk towards the back, they pass KIMMY who is already sitting, coloring in a sketch pad, she looks up and smiles at Jon, who awkwardly looks away.

why don't you just talk to her already?
I mean, she's been going to our school
for a month now, and I don't think you
even know her name.

Her name is Kimmy

Dude... so not the point.

They sit. A teacher stands at the front of the bus and addresses the students.

Alright everyone, make yourselves
comfortable, we should be getting
to the museum in about an hour.

As the bus begins to drive, Shane pulls out a pouch drink, and an mp3 player, he holds up the headphones.

I'm putting these on, and I'm not taking
them off until you go talk to her.

He puts a fake smile on his face

SHANE (cont'd)
(mock excitement)
So go get the girl of your dreams

His smile disappears

Or, you can sit here bored the whole
trip, doesn't really matter to me.

Shane puts the headphones on, and tunes out of reality. Jon is stirring in his seat, he can't stop staring at the back of Kimmy's head, he finally takes a deep breath and stands up, he walks to her and sits in the empty seat next to her.

Hey... you're um... in my class

Kimmy laughs

Yeah, hence the field trip

Your name is Kimmy right?

Kimmy is having fun now

Your 2 for 2, good job

She looks up and smiles at him

And what's your--

She doesn't get the chance to finish her question, as Jon abruptly stand up and heads back to his seat. Kimmy lets out an audible gasp at her surprise. She looks around the seats to see if anyone witnessed her humiliation. Jon arrives back at his seat, and plops down, defeated.

Dude...the was brutal.

I know, I'm such an idiot!

True. You know that you pretty
much blew any chance you have with
her right?

I know. I should go back there

Not right now! You just humiliated
her, she'll probably stab you with
that little pastel-pencil thingy.

It appears that about twenty minutes has passed, Kimmy has packed up her art supplies and is now sleeping in her seat. Shane is also asleep, headphones falling off his head, and drool oozing out of his mouth. Jon is sitting, but looks as if he is about to explode into a million pieces of anxiety. After a couple moments, we hear tires screeching outside, the bus jolts to a stop, waking the sleeping students.

What's going on?

I don't know it ju--

The door to the bus bangs open, three masked men jump aboard. Several girls scream at the sight of the guns waving in the air.

Alright, we're going to keep
this real simple. You don't
step out of line, we won't shoot you.

The gunman raises his gun, pointing it towards the seats.

Now I want all the girls to the
front of the bus, and all the boys
to the back.

The students are frozen in fear

I said NOW!

He takes several broad steps towards the middle of the bus, his sights set on Kimmy. He grabs her arm, and rips her out of her seat. Jon stands up

Hey! Get your hands off her

The gunman lets go of Kimmy's arm, she sinks back down, curling into a fetal position on her seat. The gunman walks to the back of the bus, Jon's bravery has wavered by now, he looks around for a way out, obviously finding none. The gunman shoves his gun in Jon's face.

What did you say to me?

I--I told you to--to let her go

That's what I thought.

The gunman hits Jon across the head with the butt of his gun, knocking him to the floor of the bus.

Anyone else?


That's what I thought

Shane carefully helps Jon up to the seat. The gunman walks back toward the front of the bus, halfway, he stops, turns back to Kimmy and grabs her. She struggles against his grasp

Please, let go

The gunman tightens his grip, tries to walk toward the front with her, she refuses. He steps behind her, and forcefully shoves her, she moves a few steps forward before falling to the ground. The gunman points his gun at her

I believe there was something I
wanted you to do.

Without resistance, Kimmy scrambles to her feet and moves to a seat in the front. A few more girls, not desiring the same treatment get up and move to the front, the boys move to the back.


A bizarre scene, a school bus dead in the middle of the road, a car stopped in front of it. Several people have gathered to watch the scene unfold. A few people have cell phones out, calling 911. A siren can be heard in the distance. It gets closer


The gunman looks outside, a smile spreads across his face.

Now it gets fun.

I love being a nerd

I found two awesome websites the other day,, and

I got a bunch of new t-shirts... here's the ones I got, some are alittle crude, but they're all hilarious!!!

"The cake is a lie

Roughly translates to "your promised reward is merely a fictitious motivator".

Employee #1: Yo, Dave, manager says we will probably get a promotion if we meet the sales expectations for this quarter.

Employee #2: Yeah, so, don't get your hopes up on that one, Ed. The cake is a lie.

Employee #1: Really, aw crap. "

These ones are stickers...
