 So, I haven't had a real entry since early May I guess. I'm kinda falilng off the face of the planet again.  It happens once in a while. Painted my room... only I can make orange walls and a peach-ish ceiling in a 10x10 room look so amazing. Well I guess the colors are technically 'Spiced Pumpkin' and 'Fresh Peaches'

umm, classes are going well, I guess. Phyics isn't too bad, yet. Actually I think Accounting is worse than Physics.  I stopped by the head of the Architecture dept.'s office  the other day and talked to her for a while. Apparently she thinks im insane for taking 17 credit hours and working, so far it's really not that bad, also she and all the other Arch profs apparently think that I have a lot of potential that is being wasted by me slacking off all the time. Well I'm gonna prove 'em all wrong this semester, by kicking ass in all my classes...heh...All these classes are taking up a lot of time tho, then the weekend comes around and im too tired to do anything :(  But I REALLY want to go play volleyball very soon.

I figured out my income for the month and now that I'm only working 20 hours/week  I'm probably going to have to pick up more hours again, which really sucks cuz I need all the time I can get for homework. gah. I hate money. Especially bc I suck at saving it.

Haven't been to my apartment in about a week....my computer crashed so I have to use my Mom's comp 'til I get mine back up and running, I guess.

This weekend my mom went to IN with Chuck for my umm, cousin-in-law's? wedding.  Chuck got to meet one of my mom's sisters, I wonder how that went.

I've figured out that I'm going to minor in Architectural Photography, no idea how I'll use that in Construction Management, but I want to eventually open up a gallery in Boca Grande, FL.

I've been watching a ton of movies lately, and I'm just gonna do a quick rating of some of 'em.

-Man On The Moon: A+, Phenominal movie, Jim Carrey is scary good in this. It's about Andy Kaufman's life, basically. Very awesome film.

-War Of The Worlds: B-, Not too bad, even tho I don't really like Tom Cruise. There are some kind of ridiculous parts, aliens taking over the world and such....but the effects were pretty cool.

-X3: A, Just awesome. Personally, I like it better than 1 and 2.

-Requiem For A Dream: A+, This is one of the coolest directed movies I've ever seen.  Basically about hard drugs and how they will really fuck up your life. Really powerful film. Awesome directing by Darren Aronofsky, and Jared Leto plays lead which is awesome cuz he's hot, lol.    

-Adaptation: A, well written movie. Starring Nick Cage. basically about a frustrated screenwriter who has to adapt a book into a movie, but a lot of shit happens.... dunno how to explain it, it's just good. lol

-28 Days Later: A, another one of my awesome zombie movies, lol. Starring Cillian Murphy, basically about a breakout in the UK of some monkey virus that turns u into a zombie...sounds stupid, but it's actually really good and well written. It's cool cuz throughout the movie it's showing the streets of London TOTALLY vacant except for the actors, apparently they did those shots really early in the morning and just simply asked people not to walk on the streets. cool stuff.  I also learned that the word "fuck" is used 61 times in the film. lol.

-Pi: Faith In Chaos: C, I really was wishing that this would be amazing because it was from the same director that did Requiem for a Dream. But no, it kinda sucked. Shot in all black and white, about a crazy ass paranoid mathematician who searches for a key number that will unlock the universal patterns found in nature....its basically him sitting in a room the entire movie yelling at a computer with a bunch of numbers, then he starts doing drugs for whatever reason.....BORING. no wait, not even boring, just plain stupid. I didn't even watch all of it, I had to turn it off. One cool thing about it tho was that it only cost $60,000 to make, which was contributed by friends and family each putting in $100. When it was finally picked up by Artisan Entertainment, all the friends and family each got back $150. thats nice, lol.

-Donnie Darko: A-, cool movie, I was surprised my brother had never seen it either. Basically about a screwed up kid that is possessed by a scary looking person in a bunny costume. haha sounds stupid, but the movie is actually really cool. The end is cool too, cuz it kinda lets u think what u want, im still kinda confused by it tho... i want to know what really happened. hmm.

woah, kinda got carried away with all that....

Isn't the Heritage Fest this weekend? Who wants to go?

I remember watching Requiem for the first time sitting on the edge of my seat with my jaw on the floor for pretty much the entire thing.

Fuck the haters. Go show them they are wrong!

One cannot fall off the face of the earth. It was discovered long ago that the world isn't flat. But it isn't quite round either. Peace out!
