Graduation

Last night was our certificate ceremony for the UCLA Screenwriting Professional Program. Sixty-five competitors, er, I mean compatriots.

I'll be in at least one writer's group from the program, and we're continuing on right away so as not to lose momentum on the exalted "Writer's Schedule."

Mom and Nurse Sis attended, and finally were introduced to the fellow screenscibes they've heard about all year. We all went drinking in Westwood afterward. All in all, it was lovely and felt like an accomplishment.

I'm already further along than most self-declared screenwriters. Now it's time for pedal to the medal, and to start contacting my contacts. Phew!

And to ignore that I'm turning a year older tomorrow. That's right. I'll be 22. Again.

Congratulations, Kid Sis. I love sharing my "virtual friends'" accomplishments. It embiggens my life. (ten Brownie points to anyone who catches that reference).

Turning 22 again? You're a mere baby, a bairn, a tadpole, a sprog, a youngster, a rugrat, an infant. Just wait until you're turning 35 again!

Happy Birthday, Kid!

ronnie (who recently turned 35... again)

Kid Sis said...

Come on, if you're going to lie, make it good!!!! You turned 25 again!

Dave said...

Embiggens...it's a perfectly cromulant word.

Congrats on your accomplishment. Smart strategy to keep momentum going. Doing the advanced course next year?

Happy 22nd birthday - again! I think you've got a good many more years before that clock magically stops. ;)

Kid Sis said...

Dave, I'm actually starting the Advanced course this summer with Wendall! No plans to ever apply to the program again, though. They lost me.

DD, thanks!

Happy birthday, kiddo.

I'll see you on the other side of Cancer when I turn 30 (for the first time) in 29 days.

Also, many, many congratulations on your graduation. So exciting. And I'm so glad that your mom was there.

(By the way, the graduation march goes "daaaah, dah dah daah daaaah, daaaah. daaaah, dah dah daah daaaaaaaah...")

Sorry.
