So, So Done.

The quarter is finished! Grades turned in, papers written and books read. Now I start that loop again in a few weeks, but its break time now. When I get free time though, its hard to be motivated to do things. All I want is some rest, maybe I will ask for that from Santa.

One of my favorite things being on a college campus is the odd bits of conversation you hear in passing. My favorite from this quarter was between two guys walking past each other.

Guy 1: "Hey, I thought you graduated last spring"
Guy 2: "Yeah, me too, but I guess not. Don't have time to talk right now, I'm 20 minutes late to class"

In other news, we went and saw "Juno" again and its even better the second time. Some of the dialogue is so quick and snappy that you need multiple viewings to catch it all. I'm also loving the soundtrack, all of them great songs. I have also added a new link to the right. "Timothy McSweeney's Internet Tendency" is a great online spot for some cool quirky humor. Definitely check out the archives that have. Well that's it for now.

End of Quarter

Finals week is here! That means lots of work and little time. I've got one class finished and two more to go. All will be done by friday. I hope.

The movie class has wrapped up as well. The last two were "Atonement" and "The Kite Runner". Both were excellent films that dealt with adults being forced to deal with mistakes/actions taken while children. I think KR was a little better given its relevance to our times. The disparity between the Kabul of the character's youth and the one he visits in 2000 is devastating and shocking. More when I'm done.
