  1. Thank you so much! I have to say, I was at one point last year decided that I was not going to college right after school. But then, I suddenly became overwhelmed by what my parents and all teachers were telling me. Basically, I'm the kind of smart kid who goes to college. Only dumb kids don't go to college. It's just a dumb decision. A college degree gives you security. At least, these are all things that I've been made to believe. But you have a point! I could be wasting time and money in school if it's not necessary. You make a VERY valid point. It just makes me so nervous to picture myself basically selling my soul to the industry at the ripe young age of 18 without any knowledge beyond high school. You're right though; now is the time for risks. I do feel as though there is so much I can learn from school though! I'm so glad you've given me some food for thought. Thank you again so much for your two cents! =D

  2. Hello there! I'm a junior in high school this year and it's just about time I start getting serious about what I want to do with my life. I'm trying to research different careers I'm interested in pursuing and college majors I might want to take. I've always been extremely interested in television and film, but I've just within the past year become interested in the production side of things, whereas before I was primarily interested in performing. So, with all that said, is there anyone around with sagely expereince who would like to share some advice with an eager young grasshopper such as myself? I'm wonding what public universities have good film study programs and what a good major would be for someone who would like to keep options in the industry open to several occupations (screenwriting, directing, acting, producing, etc.) And along with that, what are some things you all did that helped you along the way? What decisions did you make? What are some things that I could be doing to gain experience and prepare myself right now?
