  • Friend: OMG did you see the new movie that came out??
  • Me: No.
  • Other friend: I watched all of the oscar nominees. Have you seen them?
  • Me: No.
  • Friends: BUT YOU'RE IN FILM!
  • Me: Yes, and that requires me to spend my hours watching classic films, indie films, foreign films, old films, and, oh yeah, my focus is TV so my free time this week was spent binging all the seasons of The Wire. Not just watching it but ANALYZING IT. FILM IS A TIME CONSUMING MAJOR.
