You're all probably aware that I want to make films. It's why I came to Syracuse. And yet, for some reason, I'm sitting here researching the ad revenues of cable, magazines, radio, and newspapers. The required TRF class I'm taking this semester has almost nothing to do with anything I'm interested in. We covered the film business for one day.
And now I'm trying to do my part to contribute to a gigantic group report/presentation that has absolutely nothing to do with film.
WHAT THE FUCK?!
The major is called "Television, Radio, and Film." It is not "Television, Radio, Newspaper, Magazine, Management, Advertising, and Maybe Some Film If You're Really Lucky."
I just keep thinking about how ironic it is that I'll be paying for this semester someday. Sure, my parents are paying now, but I'll have loans to deal with in a few years. I'll probably have to use the money from my filmmaking career.
Anyone else see the problem?
I will have to pay for this bullshit class eventually, but the money I pay with will not be earned as a result of taking the class, since most of the material is related to the TV and radio business, not film writing or production. So basically, my parents and I are paying for me to be pissed off for a semester. It's a complete waste of thousands of dollars.
...That sounded more coherent in my head than it looks...Oh, well.Posted by CD on April 26, 2005 09:31 PM
