alot of things going on right now. work, creative projects and inspiring thoughts. I find it hard to fall asleep cause my head is filled with information and inspiration and I just can´t stop thinking. I guess it´s a good thing also. I´m really getting into this. I´m excited. I can feel it. a new way of thinking, challenge myself and try to see things differently. my filmmaking teacher in high school taught me that it´s always good to keep a notebook and a pen next to your bed, cause it´s usually when you are about to fall asleep that the best ideas come to you. just like that. she was the best teacher ever. very though but so inspiring. I always listened to what she had to say and I really kept this notebook thing on my mind cause it felt like she really ment it. she knew how to make her students really excited about a project and make the best out of it. she was not satisfied with ok, it had to be thought through, with an important message and a smart way to perform it. I remember that we went to the film festival in Berlin and watched a movie that we had to analyze when we got back to Stockholm. it was a really scary, uncomfortable, terrifying and touching movie and we got really affected by it. we all thought we understood the message but when we got feedback from the teacher, we realized that the message was too hard to get so none of the students had understood it right. she also taught us that no answer is wrong in the end and that the most important thing was that we tried. she knew what she was doing with our minds. imagine how many interesting thoughts that came out of our confused minds. we discussed it for months. and I still think about it sometimes.

my notebook is quite filled up and messy right now, but it´s a good mess.

Låter ju skit bra att ha en bok bredvid sängen som man kan skriva ner alla konstiga idéer man får. Då kanske det finns någon som är värd att fortsätta finula på. Hoppas att du fått ut någon spännande idé av ditt skrivande! :)
