Blather

Hello all. I don't have anything exciting to say so just move right along. I'm chillin at Boyfriend's, singing along to the All American Rejects to the immense enjoyment of anyone able to hear, I'm sure.

But we're gonna talk about not-the-All-American-Rejects now. As usual, Relient K has proved to be a very appropriate soundtrack to my life. This song has been thematic for me more than once, but never more so than now. Enjoy =)

I have an astronomy exam on Wednesday and I know I'm screwed, which makes it really difficult to motivate myself to study. I've heard the prof scales the tests by like, 40 points. I say he should just give easier tests. Or more of them covering less material. Because the one coming up covers 20 pages of class notes, 7 chapters of the textbook, aaaaaand MATH. Yep, I'm screwed. I don't know what I expected from this class but I know I'm not getting it.

No, that's a lie. I'll tell you what I expected. I thought we would have regular classes that taught us principles of astronomy and then meet up in the middle of the night to observe the heavens.... sort of Harry Potter style. I want to study the sky the way the original astronomers did - that is, through OBSERVATION. There are just some things that shouldn't be taught in a classroom, and astronomy is one of them. But then, I am very much against structured education in the form it takes today, particularly at this point in time, so I suppose I'm too biased for my opinion to matter much.

On the bright side, I've only got 19 more days before spring break. HUZZAH! Let's make it even more epic than last year.

Oh, so Boyfriend and I watched this movie last night, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. When I read about it in AP, it sounded really fantastic, and the premise was good. They spent the movie searching for this band that was having a secret concert, and they were supposed to follow clues to figure out where the show was happening. Sounds brilliant, right? Like don't you wish you knew of a band like that? Music suddenly becomes this magnificent adventure, right?

But the movie was more about dumb high school drama, and in the end, they finally found the venue and (SPOILER ALERT) THEY DIDN'T EVEN GO TO THE DAMN SHOW. They were all "are you sad we missed it?" "No, I'm not, are you?" And I'm just like "WHAT ABOUT ME? I WANTED YOU TO GO THE SHOW. Idiots." The soundtrack was okay I guess. Nothing fantastic. Like Boyfriend said, the whole movie was trying too hard to be like Juno, and it didn't help that Michael Cera co-starred in it. So the moral of the story is don't waste your time watching this movie. Go follow a band around the city instead, and when you find 'em, watch their show. The end.

oh boy, i have a feeling i'm going to be dealing with that astronomy come next year. because in order for me to take an english major, i have to have a science course? and astrology seemed to SPARK MY INTERESTS... but now im scared XD

lucky duck. what are you doing for spring break?

BAHAHHAHAA and that last paragraph made me laugh! even though i haven't seen the movie, and since you spoiled it and made it sound pretty funny, i think i will watch it. just for the hell of me being able to agree with your opinion. or to continue adding on to your opinion XD

astronomy and astrology aren't the same. astrology is like, the zodiac and fortune telling and stuff. yeah they wouldn't offer a course in that at my Christian liberal arts school.... we aren't THAT liberal.

I have no idea what's going on this spring break but all my favorite people are going to be in one place, and epic stuff happens when we get together. ^_^

I'm completely with you on the astronomy front. I took an astro class here last spring and definitely wish it had been more Harry Potter style.

But apart from that, just wanted to let you know that I love reading your blog and it always makes me smile. We definitely have to get together at some point over spring break if ours overlap at all.

Nick and Norah was originally a book, I read it during senior year and it's actually pretty cute. I never saw the movie, but from the trailer I could tell they butchered it. Blahhhh I hate that. But oh well.
