listening to: tori amos – all the girls hate her
Yeah. Um, I saw Mona Lisa Smile with Miriam. Don’t do it. It was like…a very unstable balance of chick-flick and wanna-be artsy fartsy movie. Buuuut, I like Julia Stiles. And that one girl. And Tori Amos was in it for like two minutes, and I realize that this will sound weird, but she’s hot!
Anyway, I didn’t enjoy it too terribly. It was really unbalanced, and random, and you just sort of kept wondering if it was going to be over soon. I did sort of enjoy following the stories of some of the girls, but…well…I dunno. It wasn’t worth it. Oooh, there was a girl who was supposed to play the cello (the cello was really nice. And so was the over-dub, honestly), but did a horrible job faking. I was insulted. My mom says that in Master and Commander, the captain and some other guy play the violin and cello, and the faking for that as awesome. Sometimes I think that’s what I want to do. Be a professional faker.
Anyway, yeah. We went to Dairy Queen before that, and I recognized two of the guys working there as people I went to a lot of elementary school with, and then later junior high. Aaand, like, the one who took my order actually recognized me and went “Hey, Talia. Right?” and I was like “yeah” and remembered his name and whatnot. And he was all nice and friendly and smiley and…it was just weird because he used to be a complete ass. It was weird.
Aaah, my dad is whining at me to get off the damn computer! Nyaaah!
But, wait. I just looked at my grades, and I completely rock! I got five A’s and two B’s. In music theory, I actually got a B+. That “+” warms my heart to music theory so much! I never ever expected to do that well in the beginning, but look what happened!
I actually made the Dean’s list! I’m just…I don’t know. My grades don’t reflect my feelings towards my college situation, but it really does feel good to see all of this after a somewhat hellish first semester. It makes me want to go back to school, if anything, just to get into the next semester and begin the process of getting it over with. For sidenote, I have suspicions that Japanese may be claiming my head for hanging on its wall. This is why I need to study now.
