The Ubiquity

Diego Caceres

Diego Caceres, Staff Writer

Hi! (I struggled to find a picture for this since I am usually the one behind the camera) My name is Diego Caceres and I am a sophomore at Quartz Hill High School. This year, while I am still recovering from World History AP, my focus has shifted to becoming a better writer and an all-around better student. I joined Journalism in hopes of meeting new people and learning new skills to improve my writing. Creating is my passion and any way to refine my work is important to me. When I am not working as an indentured servant for my brother’s Instagram, I am either hopelessly trying to impress someone, watching a Ghibli movie, or scrolling through Letterboxd. Favorite movies are My Neighbor Totoro and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Recently, I was able to watch the newest film by Charlie Kaufman titled I’m Thinking of Ending Things. I do not want to go into detail about the movie because I just might end up writing a whole review, but it was certainly one to remember. I’ve never had to think so hard in my life while watching a movie since Inception (I have thought hard about other movies, but it felt more necessary and not out of the thrill of uncovering new riddles). I plan on watching more of his work in the future.

 

2.1.20 Update

During my vacation, surprisingly, I hardly watched any movies, my main pastime. After watching so many movies, I figured it was time I tried my hand at it. Over the break, I wrote a letter to myself and shot some footage to go with it. It turns out it was harder than I thought. The planning, writing, shooting, and editing was intimidating. I am ashamed to admit that I gave up towards the end of the process. Now that school has started, I fear it will get in the way of a second chance to complete it (But that is just an excuse, of course. If I wanted to, I would take the time). In all honesty, I hope I can finish what I started.
