So I've only seen three of those films. I don't know whether to feel ashamed or challenged. I hope life if going well for you. I am in a directing class this semester and am absolutly loving it. It's such a thrill to have a group of people under my control, waiting for me to lead them and make something interesting of them. I'm also in acting, which is a whole other thrill, but I won't get into that. Have a great life!

Challenged. You're young, and in school. When would you have seen these?

Start now! :)

I've seen 10 of them. That's about a third. I'm young and in school, but I'm a whole other animal.
