Howdy! Not that any of you have noticed or cared, but I haven’t really posted much on here since my internship. The movie is going well and I’m having a good time. There have been some off days, but that’s to be expected. Fortunately though, with the off days follow the fun ones!
Anywhos’ll! I’ve been super busy! This is my last week and then we’re done filming. On Monday I’ll be leaving for CA to spend a few days with my grandparents. They’ve planned out some pretty awesome things to do to celebrate my 21st birthday! Then when I get back I’m dying my hair reddish-brown!
Lots of things are happening and changing. I like when life happens. Instead of the usual, “sitting-around-doing-nothing” all the time. :)
May 29, 1991:
A small baby girl, 6 pounds and some odd ounces, with chubby cheeks, was born. With many names thrown out, such as: Sarah, Paige, Grace etc. my father said, “What about Christina?”. And thus, I am here 21 years later with the same old chubby cheeks.
I would like to say that with the exception of a sip of white and red wine, I’ve never had alcohol. I really know nothing about it, either. Just never peeked my interest. But, since I’ve been doing my internship as a Production Assistant on a feature film, I technically turned 21 onset.
We were filming in a bar (go figure) so when we wrapped at 2am, the other interns and crew wanted to buy me a drink. David, the 2nd Assistant Director, bought me my first ever alcoholic beverage. I had Josh (2nd 2nd AD), Luca (PA), Robert (PA), and other crew members giving me cheers with their beers and what not. After some people (including the director) gave me a congratulatory “Happy birthday”, I drank my Buttery Nipple.
I have no friggin’ clue what the hell it actually is haha. It was eh. Funky after-taste, that’s for sure. I liken it to cold medicine. I told everyone it was good (as to not hurt their feelings). They all said that they were honored to be witnesses to my very first drink. One of the wardrobe ladies gave me a shirt! It has to do with the movie, so I’m happy I have a memento!
I just want to thank them for making my birthday special. Even if they never read this.
I have an internship with the Assistant Director on a feature film! It’s unpaid, but that’s cool haha. I had my interview with the AD (Assistant Director) today and he is a really cool guy!
I’m so excited for this! I can’t really talk about the film. Even though it’s a low budget film, I was told that the producers did not want anything to be publicized. Especially on social media sites. Sorry! But, it seems pretty interesting! :)
I will be extremely busy from May 21st-June 16th. With being on set for 10-12 hours everyday except the weekend (because of my job) I won’t be on here very often. Just wanted to let those who know me, know. And for those who don’t know me…well, now you know too!
