The Beginning of the End

So ends my first week of my final year in school. I had my first assignment of the year due today in my collage courses where we had to create a sound collage. I stayed up until 4:30 am working on it and had to wake up at 8am so I was quite the zombie today during school. It was a pretty hectic week for me. I haven't gotten any rest since I got back from my trip. The night I got back I went to bed at 3am. The next 2 days I volunteered at the Toronto Film Festival. Sunday night was the opening of Kevin Bacon's movie, The Woodsman, at the theatre I was working at. I actually got to see Kevin Bacon, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Joseph Gordon-Levitt! :O On Monday I had class at noon, then volunteered in the afternoon until 11:30 pm. That night was the opening of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's movie, Mysterious Skin. I didn't get to see him, but I did see Michelle Trachtenberg instead. Oooh the excitement! My Monday shift was pretty cool overall- I met a girl studying architecture at Ryerson and during our hour break, I gave her an architectural tour of the U of T campus. I also got to work in the auditorium for one move and sit in during the screening of Cinévardaphoto, which sounded really interesting, but turned out to be quite boring. Plus the fact that I was standing for a big chunk of the movie didn't make it any better. Wednesday I caught the industry screening of Whisky w/ Chris. It was a good film... a bit on the slow side. Yesterday we caught an amazing film called Millions, which was very much in the style of Big Fish and Amélie- colourful and fantastical. Tomorrow is my last volunteer shift. Must sleep, zzz.
