As I look back on this road I've travelled....

Well, after that last post about the subsidizing of New German Cinema, I ended up not being asked a single thing about it on the test. I think I did alright though. But none of that matters now. I'm GOING HOME!!! In less than 2 hours, I'll be on the road driving towards the great commonwealth of Virginia. And it shall be a glorious day.

Oyg. It's really weird, thinking that I'm already done with my first semester of college. Only 7 more to go. It's gone by kinda quickly without me really realizing it--just going to classes day in and day out, trying to get by-- and suddenly it's gone. I mean, its not like I'm really gonna miss it or anything. It's just different. No more "WHAT!?"s in Brubacher's class, no more "Green sheets" or late night readings from Davis, no more spanish classes that seem to last for three hours, no more confusions on "this notion of ecriture" in international, no more impromptu Haikus in Intro to Film "I am in parmer/Simmons is rambling on/I am very hot". Sigh. I think this semester has been better than I realized

Well, it doesn't matter, cause next semester is gonna ROCK! Ima takin digital production. I be makin movies!

We're crammin...

I am now done with papers, and one of my exams(the spanish one). I've got one exam to go, for international cinema, which is very easily the harder of the two. I need to remember the lasting legacy of the French New Wave as opposed to New German Cinema, as well as the impact of the two on future filmmakers. New German Cinema, being subsidized directly by the government, was never very popular with the public. In fact, it was one of the most hated national cinemas of them all. Virtually no-one went to see New German Films, because they didn't depend on public popularity for their vitality--they were completely government funded. As a result, New German Cinema's legacy is virtually non-existanct. Nobody wants to revisit New German Cinema, because nobody likes New German Cinema--especially me.

oyg. I needed to update, and I also need to study for my international cinema final. So i figured I'd kill two birds with one stone. I'll do a real update after I'm done with the final.

...And then he woke up

Oyg. how long was I out for? It feels like weeks.. Oh, it was?

Yeah, I kinda had 4 papers due this week, and restricted myself from the computer until they were done. I still have one left to do, so I really shouldn't be on now anyway, but I felt I owed it to my loving and adoring fans to say that yes, sadly, I'm still alive.

Okay, now back to bed.
