how is it possible to feel so behind and so exhausted after one week

i’m behind in both my english classes

i still have to get some of my textbooks

and i haven’t even gone out!

it’s like, everything sucks

i feel like i’ve adapted to living with roommates and living with two people i was unfamiliar with rather well

but that’s definitely probably adding to my exhaustion?

Overall, I really really liked Dead Poet’s Society.

I wasn’t a big fan of some of the acting. There werejust moments that were intensely cringeworthy.

I didn’t like the plot between Knox and Lisa and cheered when she said he didn’t even know her, but then sighed when it resolved the way everyone assumed it would.

I liked Dalton, I did, but I also feel like I’ve seen that kind of character done better by better actors with better writing.

I really had issues with acting in the movie besides the two I’ll mention later, but I’m wondering if it’s the writing I’m having issues with? I feel like there wasn’t consistency. At the drop of the hat, I could go from absolutely riveted to brought out of it completely.

BUT

ROBIN WILLIAMS AND ETHAN HAWKE

HOLY SHIT

M A S T E R S

It was the two of them that had me hooked. Their relationship was electric. I was so invested in the two of their characters.

God, Ethan Hawke. Robin Williams. They were the best actors by far.

I got so many chills during the movie! Especially during the iconic “O Captain” scene, but also

The sequence from when Neil gets in his Dad’s car through Todd in the snow was one of the most amazing things.

Especially when we were see Neil in motion before it happens. Fucking. Chills.

Gahhh

flipz white fudge covered pretzels are so d a n g e r o u s

i could easily eat a whole bag and want more

I’m watching 30 Rock with my roommates

And oh my god

YO

Today I:

  • Went to two classes
  • Met up with people to hang out a couple of times
  • Bought my last textbook and a screenwriting book (sorry to whomever needed it for class??)
  • Biked 11 miles at the gym
  • Lifted weights
  • Did some exercises for my back/shoulder (WOO)
  • Figured out to key to my shower and had one of the best showers ever
  • Cooked dinner
  • Made fucking tabbouleh (SO MUCH CHOPPING GAH)

soooo, super productive, right? Woo!

Except I’ve done zero homework due tomorrow and I have no idea what’s going on with the constitution for the FU…

you done fucked up buddy

it’s going to be very painful when tim and lyla (inevitably?) break up

and the giving tree was a good metaphor for tyra/landry, but now she likes him again? she goes through these phases where she likes an idea of landry, but then just breaks his heart again…

i like crucifictorious. is that bad

I thought James told me we have cable

But it turns out we don’t

And now I have this tv in my room that’s useless because I have no hdmi cord for a mac to connect to it

And can’t watch anything on it

But I paid for it last year, so I’m not getting rid of it - it’s in good condition

it just feels weird and kind of threw me for a loop

Man, my first day’s been easy, and I’m grateful for that.

SciFi is gonna be awesome, but I already knew that. For some reason, I’m feeling more confident and will try and contribute more to discussion. I don’t feel as intensely intimidated as I did at the beginning of The Wire class last semester. Plus, Pizzino’s honestly the best professor I’ve ever had and probably will have.

Milton… is going to be tough, I can already tell. But I’m hoping it’ll be rewarding. We have to memorize the first 16 lines and last 9 (or it might be the reverse) of Paradise Lost, so maybe I’ll be able to pull that out while drunk.

I have to actually cook tonight (le gasp), but it’ll be good to get into a routine. I’ll probably make chicken? And eat a salad ‘cause I have a lettuce to eat. I’m nervous about cooking. I also want to make tabouleh tonight or tomorrow so the parsley doesn’t go bad? Maybe I’ll do that so I can eat the tabouleh with it and have some for lunches and shit. ‘cause once I make it, it lasts for a long time (it won’t go bad before I decimate it).

But tabouleh could be slightly more laborious. Especially if I’m wanting to eat rice as my side dish. But maybe I won’t do that. Maybe I’ll eat tortilla chips and queso as my side (besides the salad, and it is college haha).

I just have to get myself into the habit of cooking and it’ll be good and rewarding and a positive experience.

Tomorrow I have French and Econ. And so much reading. I already have so much reading to do for class ahhhhhhh.

Wednesday, I have Creative Writing, which I’m so stoked for. And a Spoken Word officer meeting. To plan shit.

I still haven’t gotten the constitution, so I need to figure out what’s going on there. And then schedule an officer meeting.

And I still have to finish editing my resume and send it to my dad’s friend’s husband, with a brief cover letter type thing.

And schedule when to write my SoI for Grady (ughhhhh).

And maybe apply for a job?

I’m tired. I thought I just needed a night’s sleep but it’s more than that.

I always forget just how therapeutic and soothing cleaning dishes by hand can be.

I know when I was younger it was rough, but I just spent a lot of time washing the dishes I needed to wash and it felt good.

Also, got my Brita filter set up woot wooooot
