I should be doing my homework, but instead I decided to write a post. Procrastination at its finest! My confidence with my spiritual coaching lessons has gone up. I was so rusty when I started out, but now I think I’ve gotten back into the swing of things. Oh yeah, and I started offering services again for those that don’t know. I kind of started doing them on the “down low” hahahaha! I’m not sure how long I will continue to offer them, but I’ve been having the energy and time to keep it up.
In other news! I decided to stay in school to get my Master’s in Psychology and a minor in Philosophy. I eventually want to have a doctorate. I’m going to be that person that just has a degree in everything hahahaha! I love learning new things. I’m also loving my screenplay and poetry courses this quarter. I wrote my first script ever! I was soooo stressed about it because I hadn’t had the first fucking clue how to write a screenplay. I kept overthinking everything and double-checking on the formatting, but I have an A in the class. That means I must be doing something right. Since I am the master at procrastination, I had my script due this week and you want to know when I started writing it? The day it was due. Yep! Good ol’ Heather just stressing her life away with last minute typings. It took me a total of 4 hours to type that bitch up, but I got it! I did it, and it’ll be glorious! Or I’ll totally fail. Now my overconfidence has me thinking: I can totally be a screenplay writer. I’m a professional now. Everyone step aside! hahahaha! I totally am NOT, and I’m hoping I get at least a decent grade on this. I was thinking of posting the script here, but decided against it. I want to see my grade first before I make a complete ass of myself. That way I can make a complete ass of myself, but be an A student while doing it 😉 hahahahaha!
The script had to be 10-12 pages and we weren’t allowed to write more than that or we’d get an automatic 0. Me being a novelist, I was thinking: whaaat!!!???? You can’t suppress inspiration! If I want my script to be 15 or 20 pages, then it will! But no, I decided to adhere to the rules because I feel as though my professor wouldn’t like my “free-spirited” attitude. He is the one that has to read it in the end, and he most likely doesn’t want to be stuck reading 20 pages of script from nearly every student. My script ended up being 17 pages, so I had to cut out scenes that I really wanted to keep.
Having said that about my script writing progress, I have no problem sharing my poems.
This one is called New Love (free verse)
Hopeful arrival like a bundle of butterflies
Set to release into the void
And I cry as I feel this bundle
For I have begun to see the sun rise, over the black abyss
Lighting up all in its path
The shadows themselves begin to dissipate
Being chased out by the guard of love
The savior of all things good and pure
And as I carry this bundle of butterflies
They will flutter free from the encompasses of my heart
And the sky will shine brighter
Like a newborn day, when the rain
Has ceased from within me
My butterflies will grace the sky with its presence
This second one is called… Uh… False Peace??? Yeah, let’s go with that one. This is a free verse, short-line poem
Light the flames of anguish
In all of our hearts
Rip out the temptation
Never shall we be silent
Tarnish the need for comfort
For we will never find it here
Only illusions of peace
That light the flames of our anguish
In all of our hearts
This is called Traits and it’s a villanelle form
And this final one is called Sister and it’s a Sonnet
Alright, I guess I’ll go finish my other homework assignments. Everyone enjoy your weekend and don’t forget to laugh! 😀
Me when I was writing my script:
