Justine Bateman: My College Life
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Time to level with you. Had a bunch of stuff happen and I guess I just needed to digest it all and find places to put it all. Got "rejected" in my effort to change my major to Computer Science again. It made me spiral down with doubt and I had to crawl back, again. But, look, the first time I applied for the change, I didn't have all the classes I needed, nor the 3.5 GPA they were looking for. This time, though I had the classes, I still didn't have the GPA, so I've got to stop being dramatic with the "rejected" bit. I'm close to that GPA, but as they're only looking at the math/science/CS grades, and not any others, I just have to do better. Or maybe not. I've even begun looking seriously at my options for other majors, if it comes to that. It's not what I had in mind, but shit, I hate chasing the grades for this CS major change, and really, maybe I'm meant to have a degree in Mathematics of Computing or Bioinformatics or something that involves coding, but is outsi ...

Justine Bateman: COLLEGE
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Justine Bateman. 47. Acted for a long time. Then wrote and produced. Made a big change and decided to go to college to study computer science. As a freshman. UCLA. Bruins. I started a blog about the experience about a year ago and thought you might want to read it. (Yes, click on the colored letters for Magic Time!) (Click here if you want to start at the very beginning of this College Odyssey.) If you have time to kill. And if watching the wood on your deck deteriorate has become too dull. My school experience is mostly about how I study for tests (yawn) and what my grades were (yawn), but you might find that kind of thing "interesting." If there isn't a riot over the boredom this blog elicits, I will then regularly post my GetACollegeLife entries here from now on. Because my good friend, Mitch Semel, said to. You can blame him if the riot gets out of hand.

'Modern Family': Future Versions Of Haley, Alex And Luke
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
When Claire went into the hospital for a checkup after some heart issue on "Modern Family," she and Phil encountered possible future versions of their children. The bit started with the kids appearing to be successful and together, which made Phil think his relaxed parenting style was working. But as soon as Claire was out of the room, they collapsed into the worst possible futures for their kids. Later in the episode, after two frantic and opposing phone calls home from Phil and Claire, the kids headed to the hospital to see their parents. When they stepped into the elevator, they lined up right in front of their "future" doppelgangers. "God, do you soak your hair in cigarettes?" said "future" Alex to "future" Haley. "Do you wash your clothes in tears?" came the response from "future" Haley, played by Justine Bateman. "Future" Luke was oblivious, as expected. He said, "I have to get home, my roommate needs his shoes." The AV Club enjoyed the "Ghosts of Christma ...

Traditional TV is not "in a slump," it has been steadily declining. Bateman further explained that "multiplatform shows that have different designs not only in their very structure, but in the manner of delivery" will replace television. However, she concluded by conceding that AM radio still existed. On a hiatus from the entertainment business, Bateman established a clothing design company in 2000.
