No matter how you look at it, the world is a weird place. We base society on how we look, not on how we act. We also tend to forget that being a nerd is not a problem. I mean, it can’t be. I’m a nerd, and you don’t see me complaining.
Well, I used to complain in high school. But, right now, I am a grad student of the New York Filming Academy with the not-so-obvious career of a film director. Yeah, I know, right? Who could’ve guessed!?
Being an adult instead of a kid is very difficult. Especially when your mother and father refuse to, like, help you to the most they can, because you have a younger brother who, too, needs to go to college and could use the money so he doesn’t have to be homeless and be a person who never went to college. Jeez, that was a really strange run-on sentence that described my brother’s non-existent lack of college money...
Well, that’s life for you; either you have money, or you don’t. It is very difficult to be a film director in this way as well, so this is my solution! Yes! Writing and recording every bump in the road I encounter in my life-that-I-hope-lasts-more-than-the-present-twenty-third-year! I hope to gain popularity so people will know there is a film director in this world that hasn’t been talked to yet. Please. I’m desperate.
I should possibly begin with my name. I’m Alexander “Ander” Clements. My friends call me Ander, because I dated a girl in high school whose name was Andy, and then I wound up dating another girl with the nickname ‘Andy’...They said I was a real ‘Ander,’ and it stuck. I don’t think ‘Ander’ is a real word, though, I just think they were trying to be either stupid or complete smartasses. Plus, my name is Alexander...so...it’s Alex-Ander...Yes.
I am a 23 year old grad student of NYFA, as I already said. Er, I dunno how to talk about myself in a non-selfish way... I guess that I am a bit of a slob, you could say. If you’re my girlfriend, Kai, you would agree while pulling your hair out (thank you, sweetie, for adding that ‘pulling hair out’ thing. This is what is called sarcasm, people) that I’m quite the messy person.
I share an apartment with Kai in New York City, so she would know. Plus, we were roommates at NYFA in my last year there. That’s how I met her, actually. Maybe one day I’ll explain our first day and how much of a klutzy nerd I was! Haha...refrain.
I believe in...Bare with me, viewers, I’m reading questions off of a piece of paper I found in my old file cabinets that’re from 7th grade...I believe in...hmm...
I BELIEVE IN BEING A CYNIC! YES! THAT’S THE ONE I WAS LOOKING FOR!
I wish that I could become a major film director and one day be at the Oscars. I don’t need to win one...I just want to be there for the experience.
I think that Kai looks beautiful right now! :) I love you too...
Right! Now that that’s over, I may continue. My younger brother, Charles, is beginning college next year. He’s looking into applications for Temple and New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture. He’s an artist...
And he’s also single...hmm...should I play cupid with one of Kai’s friends to my little brother? ...I’ll keep it in mind NO I WILL NOT BECAUSE ALL OF KAI’S FRIENDS ARE TOO AWESOME FOR CHARLES!
...Thank you for that input, sweetie. Ha. She said “You’re welcome”.
You are welcome?
WHICH ONE IS IT!?
Hmm...Kai says it’s y-o-u-apostrophe-r-e. Is it? I dunno, you tell me. I need reassurance the people are reading these. Just comment, please? I need to know!
Well, back to my life (didn’t sound weird?)! My Dad, John Clements, is an RN...Haha...Kai just told me RN is also a term to be used to define ‘the chemical element radon’. Isn’t she so smart, my little actress?
Yes. She’s just acting smart. Isn’t that right Kai?
:) Right, Kai. Well, I gotta go. Places to go. Applications for jobs to fill. You get the gist.
GOOD LUCK TO ME! –Ander Clements, Film Director
