These Days

Week two of school!

First exam and first essay are due in the next day or so – so obviously I’m on here writing instead of getting that done. I’m learning quite a bit about the history of film. My classes are rekindling my love for the oldies and I have to refrain from going on a Ginger Rogers binge-watch. I also reallllly love talking about film, and I knew that because it’s something I do in my everyday life, but it’s even more apparent on my discussion boards.

That being said… I watched the Brazilian film Central Station for class. Good film – Brazil isn’t a country I think of automatically when I hear foreign film, but I enjoyed it. Next on the list for class is Pan’s Labyrinth because no, I have not seen it yet.

I also watched the first two episodes of Arrested Development – I haven’t decided if I like it yet or not. The first couple of episodes are rough and I want to give it a chance because Jessica Walters! (Archer people – it’s a gift from God)

If I ever catch up on my homework I’ll finish up X Files and American Horror Story: Coven. 

There’s a lot going on right now, between work and school.



I didn’t miss this….

I started school today.

Yes…it’s online, so it isn’t exactly the same. Yet weirdly it does. All the awkward introductions are there, with the same forced regurgitation of the information we’ve already been fed.

It’s strange to me how, despite being a totally different college with completely different professors, it feels the same.

Now comes the monumental task of making room for all these assignments amongst the rest of my life.

I have to become even more disciplined, even more efficient with my time. Which is a feat – I am not originally an efficient or disciplined person (just take one look at my bedroom). Maybe…
