I’m spending my evening in the past and my imagination. Yep, I’ve started writing again. I joined a screenwriters club at my uni and have a secret project I hope to reveal in the next few days to you all. It’s been a good Saturday so far, which is good because this week wasn’t too terribly great. On Monday I had what we’ve decided was a random stomach bug (I just can’t escape getting sick every 4 weeks apparently) and had terrible stomach cramps at work, but then I found saltines and snuck about 8 of them between ringing up customers and felt better. Since then I’ve off and on had a dullish pain my lower abdomen, which unfortunately (I could tell) switched from that stomach bug, which only lasted about two or three days max, to pms. Isn’t being a woman just great? But then yesterday the Actor and I had a date night, and I’ve got to remember to document those more. I’ve taken like no pictures of our first year of marriage and that’s not ok because we’ve only got like a month and tarewo weeks left before our anniversary. Time to pull out the camera!
We went to the gym as we’ve been doing pretty much every weekday, then took quick showers and went to a cute little Chinese restaurant in town, then we saw The Grand Budapest Hotel which was good if you don’t mind movies that don’t follow the standard conventions, make you think a little bit more, and are familiar with Wes Anderson’s films and have enjoyed them in the past. There was a group of about five assholes in the theater with us. I say “assholes” because they deserve that title. The moment the film cut to credits one of them, without missing a beat, announced, “That was the stupidest movie I’ve ever seen,” and the others agreed and continued to bash it along with Napoleon Dynamite for some reason. There was another couple in there with us that didn’t say a word and I assume at least enjoyed their evening. Then, that group got up and left, leaving behind bags of half eaten popcorn and all of their drinks. Yep. Assholes. But the movie was really good. I’ll admit that it isn’t for everyone. If you like independent films you’ll probably enjoy this. I could rave about it, but that’s not what this post is about. Maybe later.
Anyway, you have no idea how excited we are to move out of this town.
Which, by the way, I’ve decided that if I can get enough aid to take summer classes this year because it ensures early graduation. I could be done either Summer or Fall quarter of 2015 if I want if I can take summer classes this year. They’re only 6 weeks long, but you get the same amount of credits, and they’re offering several classes I need to take. I would be able to switch into my new major come the start of Fall quarter, too, instead of having to wait until Winter. The Actor has decided to join me because he has quite a few classes left and only one more year (we both refuse to be 5th year seniors). So that’s a good thing I discovered this week. I also found $20 in my apartment. I love finding money you already had but forgot you had. One of my friends used to find money in her pants pockets nearly every day in the 6th grade, and by my freshman year of high school random money would show up in my purse that I know I didn’t have before. That was right after my father moved out, so I know it was him.
Today, though, has been a very good day. I slept fairly well and got to sleep in, though I only slept an hour later than normal, probably because I didn’t stay up last night. Then I got three quarters of my homework done, which mainly involved watching Back to the Future and writing about its structure. I love being a film major. We don’t go as deep as I’m used to with film analysis, but it’s still nice that my homework is to watch movies I like. Then I cleaned the apartment and reorganized a few things so it looks like we have more space. After that I did an hour of Blogilates, which I haven’t done in a very long time. It’s always nice to switch things up. Now I’m listening to Big Band/Swing music on Pandora while I work on my secret writing project.
Well, I better get to writing!
