My name is Malcolm MacLeod, I'm a second semester junior here at Oxy.
The spring semester always flies by. It seems like it just started, but spring break is just around the corner and I've got a lot to get done before then. This semester my academic schedule is very focused, meaning that all of my classes are related to one another, and that's something I haven't really had before. As a Media Arts and Culture Major, I've studied many different facets of media, but this semester I'm particularly interested in film. It's been fun learning how much thought and direction goes into even the simplest shots, and fascinating to experiment with how I might turn a screenplay into a complete film. I am still writing for the Occidental Weekly, every week. I think I might like to be an editor next semester, for both the professional experience and better pay.
Anyway, I'm having a great semester so far, and don't have to worry about waking up for spring football just yet, so I'm thankful for that. Pretty soon I'll start planning spring break. Being from New York, there's still a lot of California I haven't seen, so I think I might go on a road trip up the coast.
