While I should be spending this Halloween making positive and exciting memories with my friends, I will probably be spending most of it in my dorm room writing pages of my Game Of Thrones spec script for Writing for Television class.
You know what? I’m ok with that. I think it will be a good use of my time, and I’m not too stressed out about it anymore (or at the moment anyway), because luckily I don’t have a philosophy quiz tomorrow!
Now that was something that was making me panic.
I’m no where near ready for it. I need to read “The White Tiger” (he wanted us to finish this book over three classes! Pablo, I can’t read that fast!), and review Nietzsche’s “On Truth and Lying in a Non-Moral Sense,” Rorty’s “Achieving Our Country,” and the film 1984. This work load reminds me of the plate my Grandfather eats at Thanksgiving year after year, always mentioning how it’s going to be too much for him and how he shouldn’t finish it, but the next time I look over the plate’s empty, and he’s sitting there silently for a little while before he looks over at me and tells me quietly that he’s eaten too much. Yea, I can eat (review) this much philosophy in one day. I was beyond relieved to find out that the quiz is going to be on Tuesday.
Indeed, I am elated.
I’ve been watching 1984 for the last half hour or so and I’m not happy about it. It’s not a film one can follow easily. I don’t know what’s going on and I’m just like,
needless to say I’ll be searching “1984 Analysis” into google in the immediate future.
I love my narrative ethics class and my professor is insightful and inspiring, but this film and I are not connecting, and my time is precious, and I don’t want to go anywhere near the idea of pulling another all-nighter.
No. Never. Again.
Anyway, this week at Emerson has been interesting. I’m looking forward to the weekend and catching up on all my shit.
I’m also going to get my ass to the fitness center (if you have a moment, drop me a note and badger me about whether or not I’ve followed through on this!); this needs to happen, not just because exercise makes me and my body feel great, and healthy, but also because I’ve gained five pounds since mid August. I blame the options available, and the choices I’ve made in the Paramount Cafe. Jamal, I love you! But perhaps we could get some healthy food on the menu? Eh, it’s mostly due to the stationary placement of my ass in this chair in front of my computer… I’M GONNA GET IT MOVING!
