Something

This is just something I am working on.

Fade in

Ext. Front of the school-day

It is in the afternoon and we see the front of the school. It is a medium size school, that looks like it could be fixed or was just fixed. It does not look polished. There are tress that are on the opposite side of the school so we know that this is not a good area.

Int. High Scholl hallway- Day

We see students standing around the hallway, and we see some of them walking into classes room. We hear a lot of commotion about people talking about game. We focus on one room in particular the band room.

Unknown woman(v.o)

If anybody would like to get tickets to game on Friday they can come to office and buy them.

We look down this hallway and we do not see as many students. Come around a corner and we see a room off by itself. There are no rooms around it just this one room.

Int. Band room- Day

We come in this medium size room. We see shelfs of instruments on the wall. There are not that many instruments up there. We see students gathering around the room in there own little groups. The woodwind instruments are up front, the drumline is in the back and the horn sections are against the wall.

We then see this one guy comes in he goes over to the horn section. We then see this other guy walking with him they are chatting. The other guy walks to the drumline. We then see this group of girls walk in they are in a grade younger than the boys. One of them walks over to the woodwind section, and the other two walk over to the horn section.

The last group to walk in are the upper classmen. They all walk over to the horn section. The band director is in his office.

Band Director(v.O)

Tony come here we need to talk.

Tony is a junior and has been in the band since 7th grade. He does not really like it, but does not care that much for it.

Tony

Yes, did I do something.

The band director is in late 20’s just out of college. He has been with this band for a couple of years now. His name is Carl.

Mr. Newman

So we can’t have what happen last week happen again.

Tony

What did I do.

Mr. Newman

You know what you did, don’t let it happen again. You have to be a leader now.

Tony

Okay.

Mr. Newman

In fact you are the section leader. I am going to make you the leader.

Tony

The section leader? Are you sure, what about Billy he has been doing this longer than me.

Mr. Newman

No you are the leader. I trust you. You have the right mind to lead this band. You are about to be a senior when next year.

Tony

Yeah.

Tony starts to daydream about being in the band for another 5 years and it freaks him out.

Tony (continued)

sigh.. Um okay… I guess.

Tony starts to walk away from the office.

Mr. Newman

Also make sure you know that song today. you can’t mess up you have to know it by today. I want you to teach it to the rest of them.

Tony walks back over to other horns players.

Billy is in the same grade as Tony. He started playing a year before Tony. Billy is one of the smartest kids in school, and he always wanted to be cool with the jocks.

Tony

So we have to be own our best behavior today. Mr. Newman was not happy about what happen last week.

billy

What did he say now.

Tony

Well he said we have to be own our best behavior. You know how he is.

April.

I told you guys that was foul what you did.

April is not apart of the same section as Billy and Tony, but she always hangs out in that section. She is two grades lower than them. She is a know it all, but is shy.

billy

I don’t really care. I was not like we did anything to kill someone.

April.

You could have Billy, and you know how Linda is. She has to tell everything. You know what happen last month.

billy

She did what. She told about what happen on the bus.

April.

Of course she did, and that not all she did. You know how your aunt went on the trip also.

billy

Yeah.

April.

Well she said something happen with her and it was a mess.

billy

That little… Ugh I cant stand her. You know what screw her.

April.

She tells everything.

Tony

Hey guys that’s enough leave that girl alone.

Linda looks over at the standing around talking and she waves her at them.

Linda is in the same grade as April, she is one of the smartest girls in her grade, but she is always tell everything that happens.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You vs. your wealth vs. your dreams

I know I have not posted anything in a while. That is because I have been busy writing. At the very beginning of the year, I had a goal of trying to post something everyday, but soon I realize that would be a challenge, and I was up for it. Then covid happen and to be honest life took over. I was not ready for what I was about to be dealt. When everything pretty much shut down, I must admit I did not know what to do I was lost, after a couple of weeks I took advantage of the situation and got back to reading books. I read two or three books doing that time, and they both inspired me to get more creative with my writing again so I did.

Jump to a few weeks into this lockdown I gave myself a goal to have my first screenplay written by the end of the year. I am almost done, thought it might not be good, I am happy to say that I did it, or rather I am doing it. That just goes to show that if you want something bad enough you will get tired of waiting on it to happen, you have to go out and get it. You may fall down a couple times, but you must keep trying until you reach that goal. This lockdown has not been good to me on a mental side, but it showed me ways to cope and how to deal with things that I was afraid of dealing with.

When it comes to my wealth, it has not been great, but the battle is not over and I know I can win, when it comes to my dream that is battle that I am refusing to lose and I am in it for the long haul. If there is anything I can say to people is make sure you are making the right decisions for you, so that tomorrow is better.

Where?

This last month I have spent a lot time working, writing and reflecting. I needed time to figure out the person who I was, the person I was becoming, and the person I wanted to become. I am still working on the last one, but I have learnt a lot about myself. The biggest thing that I learn was that if it was something that I want I cannot sit down, and hope it come. I need to go out, and get it time waits for no one, and I feel as if I am running out of it.

Life there is no guarantee that you will be here tomorrow so you have to take chances and go after it. For years I have let others say what I need to do, and even though deep down I know it was not right thing for me, that is simply unacceptable anymore. I know what I want and I have to go get. Something else I learnt is that you have to meet people where they are. That takes a lot for someone to do, because you are letting you self down by making yourself less than you are worth. You can only meet them there for so long, and after a while you have to meet them there and then leave them there, because you can only come there for so long.

Something positive is that I can finally say that I am working on a script, is it perfect no but this is something that I want and I am doing it for me. The moral of the story is do what is best for you that’s it.

Everything I want but not everything I want

Recently I was presented with a new opportunity for something that I have been wanting for so long, and just like last time I am terrified to take it. This time though I actually have the door open, and all I have to do is walk through the door, but that for some reason is hard to do. This happens to me almost every time, but this time I am farther along then I normally am. I honestly do not know why I am like this, it is as if I do not believe in myself as I should.

As I was stating in my last post that I started writing my first screenplay, but I have not written anything for it in the last two weeks. Life has been going yet, I am doubting weather or not that I actually can do. I think it is because I have gotten so used to rejection that I do not know how to take acceptance.

I really do not know what to do, but hopefully I will figure it out soon.

Long time

Hello, so I have not been writing for a while now, I have been trying to figure out what I had to say and how to say it. I must be honest I still do not know what to say or write, but I know that I need to if I want to be better than I was yesterday. The one thing that I have started doing is writing my first screenplay. I have not written anything for the last week or so, but I am trying to figure out how and what to say when I am writing every single scene. Something that I want to have accomplish by the end of summer is a first draft.

I do know that I have this to say, if you are afraid to do something you need to try it at least once. The reason I am saying this is because I am afraid to do a lot of things recently, for obvious reason, but I still want to try them. In life, you have to be willing to step out and try things. I must say the world is pretty much in a tail spin right now, and I am not sure where everything is going, or how it will end.

That is why I have finally decided to step and do something that I have always wanted to do. I have no clue what I am doing, but one thing I have learn so far is that I love it, and I would not trade that feeling for anything in the world, it is fun. Hopefully soon I will get back to doing these. Great week.
