Long time, no see


I’ve completely neglected this blog lately, and I can assure you it’s not because of laziness. I’ve simply had too much on my plate to make blogging a priority. Oh well, enough of the excuses ^_^

Anyway, I just finished up my last shift at the grocery store, and yesterday I did the final touch on the documentary. So, I have now officially directed and produced my very first 41-minute film. Yay!


It’s been a blast! Even though, I have to admit that I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I first started the project. To shoot, do interviews and edit during the day, and then take shifts at the store at night, well it was way tougher than I’d predicted. But I got it done.

So far, the response has been beyond all my expectation.
The TV-station here in town wanted to air it, but the newspaper “Haugesunds Avis” paid more, so I let them have it.


Earlier today I had lunch with my grandparents, and then I had a meeting with the editor of the paper. Now I’ll spend a couple of hours preparing for my first job as a reporter, which I’ll write more about tomorrow.

Bless y’all,
Maria Lavelle
