Chris- use this

current situation and emotion to pour into your art, into a screenplay or storyboard for the upcoming years experience. Personal difficulty, setbacks and even angst can be fuel for your creative side. Don't let it eat you, instead ustilize this as creative 'fuel'. Journal it out and keep track of what works for you and when you struggle, know that this can be another practice your walk.
And enjoy your time with your son (it goes so fast). Endure and persevere.
Take care, Tim

up shit creek in good company

hey chris, sometimes these things happen
for a reason we can't see until later. having
done a lot of swimming in shit's creek myself,
i can tell you... dig in man, don't get thrown
by it, there is something greater going on
that maybe none of us can see yet. keep your
art going, find a way to do it without the
benefit of the school for now, you will
get stronger, your art will become
unbreakable through this. these are all
just creative obstacles that all the people
we call artists have to get through, survive,
and WHEN you do, you'll see its not a
setback, but a test of whether you really
WANT it. look around, see how much
good you got in your life, cherish it, and
let it out into your art. you gotta turn shit
creek into sweetwater lake baby!

Shit Creek

I worked like hell to get accepted to this particular film school. When I recieved the notice that I got in I fucking cried. I was one of ten students and one of six Americans. I recieved a letter last week informing me that the primary director died and that the school has to close for at least a year. It takes about a year to get an a replacement approved and accredited to run such an institute. Therefore, no school. I'm very sad and fucking confused. I love my son and he is the main reason why I am able to keep my life together right now. Today I applied for a very good job and I think that I am a shoe-in. We'll see. Sometimes life fucking sucks. I'm down, man. Way down, but not out. Palabra pendejo!
