Let me clarify study was it their priority getting good grades for and I was that rebellious teen that tried so hard to prove they were wrong and I am here to probably tell you guys you can balance everything I fell in love with filmmaking freshman year of high school when I joined it this whole filmmaking Club ever since I have participated in five students or film so far including the one that I made this year filmmaking is a lot of work though all the films that I made so far were shot during the summer it took months of preparation beforehand and some people that don't really know the art of filmmaking think that the shooting days are the only days of work but that's not true before the actual shoot you need to finish the script the storyboarding.
The casting the location hunting the prop design equipment rentals the list just goes on and on and whether I was in high school or in college balancing that with my schoolwork and everything else was really difficult and actually it kind of took three years for me to figure out how to get everything done I wouldn't say I'm an expert now because I still struggle sometimes but believe me follow these tips and you will save a heap of time one set your priorities now if you two don't mind I'm going to bed before either of you come up with another clever idea to get us killed or was expelled she needs to saw out her priorities one of my favorite quotes from the Harry Potter series oh yes Hermione needs to set out her priorities and so do we I'm someone that believes that you should always follow your heart and do what you're truly passionate about but I wasn't able to be that rebellious and do everything that I wanted.
Whenever I wanted I was always that shy kid in school so I have to find my own way to get things done so anyways if it's exam period of course exam prep is your number one priority so focus on your studying and if you become easily distracted dedicate yourself 20 to 30 minutes so that you can take a break and do what you gotta do for me I love drawing and art and to relate that to filmmaking storyboarding and designing profs was something that I really loved so every time I was on a break I would do that and when exams are over study is no longer your priority when you're in school the school system cycles so fast for me it's like midterm final midterm final and I feel like I'm this hamster that's stuck on a wheel that just can't get off but that's because I'm pretty occupied with my tests and grades even when I don't have to worry about them depending on your situation and your time in life you probably have different stuff that's going on that you want to focus on.
So make sure you know that you know what's important in that moment so you don't waste time stressing thinking other things that you need or want to do to avoid feeling guilt and be confident in your decisions mom I have to tell you something I've decided that I'm not going back to Yale next year I'm not sure that it's the right place for me you've known what you wanted to do with your life since you were three be a journalist maybe not if we could stretch time infinitely we would be able to do everything you guys probably wouldn't have even clicked on this video because the question itself is silly but because time is limited and it feels like they have so much to do all the time we start stressing and then balancing things on our schedule seems almost impossible but viewing it from a positive perspective I think it can be a motive to push us to do what we do because we know that time is limited we push ourselves to search for what we love and do those things one thing that I regret about my past time management is the feeling of guilt especially in high school when I was spending so much time watching a bunch of crash courses about filmmaking on YouTube I felt the guilt that my time wasn't being spent wisely like preparing for exams mostly because to call my high school teacher you can do all this stuff after you graduate in college so focus on your grades right now but even when I suppress my artistic desires and force myself to study I felt so ashamed of myself you know I was not determined enough to follow my true dreams though looking back I feel like a lot of the time was actually wasted on the guilt so that I was feeling if I had been a bit more confident in my decisions when I was focusing a bit more on studying or I was doing some activities that expressed my creative side I feel like a lot of the time would have been safe from feeling sorry for myself and being angry at the system blaming and on society in reality it was my mindset that has to be fixed you've got to find what you love and that is as true for work as it is for your lovers your work is going to fill a large part of your life and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work and the only way to do great work is to love what you do if you haven't found it yet keep looking and [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] whatever you do whether that be studying or anything else I hope you guys do it with a purpose and you enjoy the process do what you love and love what you do the most realistic tip of the day get yourself a planner and start planning for everyone that asked me the question how do you balance your studying and everything else you probably are struggling with this problem because you have a lot of things that you want to do you want an ace in everything well I love that mindset so keep it up and a planner will really help you on the way I have been writing a pattern swatch diary slash journal whatever you want to call it for the past five years I could probably make a new video just doing the flip through of these so the trick is simple writing down everything helps me stay well organized with my schedule so that I know what I'm doing whatever I'm doing it so invest in one of these.
