I'm talking five, but I was just told that two are unavailable so I'm waiting to see. ====I'm taking a language course,==== I'm taking a writing course, I'm really trying to take a Greek mythology course and a psychology course. ====There's so many prerequisites==== for this psychology. I always try to stay productive and do things that I feel nourish the brain.
====I've fallen on my ass==== I don't know how many times because I refused to listen to anyone.
====Most teen movies are fantasies,==== like The Princess Diaries (2001). But my movie is coming from a completely different angle, which is truth. This is what really happens.
====People tend to get nervous==== when they're working with first-time writer-directors. Because we've all had our share of bad experiences when you work with someone who is too close to the material and can't really pull themselves away.
====Last year,==== I was like, hyperventilating. I don't want to say I've gotten used to it, but my palms aren't sweating as much . . . I love walking up to my fans and saying, "Thank you for coming". It's more real.
====I think my mother is my biggest influence.==== There are so many things I hate about her but at the same time I'm thankful for her. All I know is that when I'm a parent I want to be just like my mom. I can talk to my mom more than any of my friends could talk to their parents.

But a lot of people say guys just hold it in as well.
====To read what the general public thinks==== and to put it together with your real life, it's amazing how wrong people can be.
