What’s everyone doing to keep sane?

I didn't find the right recipe yet, every day I check VIMEO for new views.
Since I'm an international student, I think my chances are far lower than for the natives.

My final semester as an undergrad started today. I've been mainly focusing on that and making sure I have the credits I need to graduate.

I also found out over the winter break that I got an internship in los angeles. It's through my school and lasts all summer, but with the possibility of a job after. So I have been stressfully searching for pet friendly apartments (Does grass even exist in L.A. anymore??), transporation options, etc., a little sooner than everyone else.

I hope I get into a cali school so that I can stay there, interning and working on my masters. I've been ignoring the fact that interviews are soon... I'll worry about that when i'm emailed the date and time. lol

It's crazy to think that in just two months, we all will be preparing for the next chapter in our lives. :)

Check out the housing forum for ideas on places to live although most places won't be put on the market until a month or less than the move in date.

I've been spending most of time refreshing my gmail like a madman and checking this site frantically to see who posts the first update. Outside of that, I've been busily typing away at a script I've been working on and eating way too much junk food.

If you go to an application to a school you're applying to you can click the button to "watch" it and you should be instantly notified if there's any update to it. You can also watch an entire category but that might be just for new applications and not updated ones. But yes keep coming back to the forums too and posting! The more activity and posts the site has the easier the wait will be. :)

I’m working on a new script
A year or so back we started a Screenwriting game if you're interested. Feel free to add onto it or create a new one if you're looking for something fun to pass the time:

I’ll definitley do that, being here on the site has already made the wait much more bearable than it would have been otherwise

I have no idea if it is true or not for American universities, I was checking Canadian universities and one of them only has 1 spot for international students. :/
Hey, which Canadian Universities have you applied to? I was thinking of going for Simon Fraser but got swayed by the courses in the colleges like Humber, Sheridan, Durham etc

Hey, I ended up not applying for them cuz the application fee was too expensive. My gf is a screenwriter and applied for York and UBC.

I'm currently working my way through Neil Gaiman's Master Class and generating as many screenplay/novel/short story ideas as possible.... in between refreshing my email. Sometimes I go to Disneyland just to keep myself from checking my phone every 5 seconds. It's moderately effective.

Spending hours on Netflix to decide what to watch but end up not watching anything, playing the new biohazard mode on pubg mobile. Neither of them seem to be working though, I'm constantly refreshing this site and my mailbox 😂
