a protestant work ethic, coupled with a catholic guilt complex results in neverending stress for me. i got back two midterms and a paper, a- on all three. good for me. however, trying to get approval to shoot and to coördinate 7 different film shoots around everyone’s schedules and at the different times in three weeks is almost impossible. not to mention that i have a prospectus and annotated bibliography for one class, a quiz in another and a report due in yet another during this time. and in 5 years none of this will have mattered. in a 200, nothing i will have done will have mattered. how can i make a lasting impact on the world? and why do i want to? is it fame or altruism?
