Been busy with school and work. One of the nice things about this job is that if I happen to have free time I can go see a movie for free. I've seen quite a few recently, maybe about two a week (as opposed to two or three every year before I started working here). The best I've seen yet, and have even seen twice, is There Will Be Blood. When I first heard the title I thought it was going to be terrible. But then I heard what it was about and then I saw the trailer and then found out it was based on Upton Sinclair's novel Oil! I decided it might be worth watching. I went to go see it first when it was at Cinema 21 and once it came to Century theaters I took my dad to see it for free. We both agree we really haven't seen anything like it before. Daniel Day-Lewis is going to get the Oscar for this one.

School has started up again. I decided not to continue Organic Chemistry. The teacher wasn't very good and I was starting to hate science. Instead I've switched to Physics. Not a great move either since it's another 2nd year teacher who doesn't know how to teach. He's already started the class over once. I don't have high hopes for learning the subject.

I've done some weeding through my f-list. If we never talk or you don't update anymore I've taken you off. But if you really want me to add you back, ask.

ETA: You should watch this, [ profile] mr_utopia_man. This must be how Chemistry feels: Chemistry Made Simple

I think the idea of working in a Cinema complex is really cool! Thirty hours is alot with school, though. But everyone I know that ever worked in a movie theater had great stories to tell and got hold of all kinds of cool promotional loot. Plus they found it addictive and most of them are still film buffs to varying degrees to this day though their careers took them far away from ushering.

You switched from organic to physical science? How does this affect your career path? you need to find you a good prof in your field and take all of his/her classes. I know that helped me.


Always good to hear from you, Jess!

I can always take it again when I transfer. I just need to fill a certain amount of general science classes at this point.

It's good to hear from you. I was wondering last night how things were with you. There Will Be Blood looks like quite a story. DDL won the SAG award for it.

Yes, he's won many awards for it. I hope it will win more.

It very well could be. I just came across the video by chance.

Yep... that's about how it feels....

Sorry Physics isn't going any better... and starting the class over is a very bad sign. Hope he gives you one of those official "review my performance" sheets.

Even if he does, it may not help that much.

On the bright side I've founf a copy of Excel Saga vol. 8. It's been out of print for sometime, but I found out there's a copy in the Borders in Tigard. It may be the last one for sale in a store in all of Oregon...
