So many exciting things!

So, there are so many things I want to talk about, so many things that have happened and are about to happen. I seriously don't know where to begin with.

Okay, let's see. I measure my life by semesters, not by years. It's easier and it's obviously the way most students do it. Interesting things happen when you are in school, not laying in your bed watching paint dry. This semester I finally, finally, begin to learn things that I actually want to learn. It's not that what I've learned so far isn't important or useful, most of it is. But this? This is what I want to do.
I'm ridiculously excited about it.

Okay. Radio/Film. Two of my main themes. We aren't studying radio and film as much as we are studying the basics, which  means we go around learning simple stuff, but having a blast while doing it (I am, I don't know the others).
Film is okay, specially because we are taking the class in a small film classroom, we have a huge screen and cinema seats and everything. I also bought myself a little projector, that way I have my own little film theater in my dorm room! Yayy!
Radio? I'm absolutely thrilled by this. Today we entered the recording rooms and started trying out things, it was amazing. If I can get my hands the little radio show we created, I'll share it with you!

Now, uhm...photography! I entered this little photography workshop thinking it was just a way to pass time. It is way more serious than I thought it was going to be. Serious enough indeed that my teacher is thinking about teaching us how to take photographs in the morgue. The morgue? It sounds both scary and amazing. I'm sooo doing it.
That said...I'm a bit worried it's disrespectful, but...I have to do it. I want to, it's an interesting and valuable experience, isn't it?

And finally. Tandem.
Do you want to know what tandem is? Yeah? Do you want to know?

Okay. So a friend of mine arrived and asked me to give her a hand in Tandem. Tandem it's an student organization that promotes interaction between local and foreign students. We pair up with some foreign student and hang around.
I thought I was going to participate as one of the pairs, but surprise! I am going to be the vicepresident!
Today is our first meeting, we are going to go trough the rules and all that stuff.
I'm thrilled, I've never done something like this before. 

So yeah, that's what I've been doing.  How about you?
