objects in the rearview mirror and things too close to see

This semester should be pretty interesting and fairly entertaining for those who enjoy watching me squirm (metaphorically, that is). For some reason now unknown to me, I chose to finish ALL of my core courses first, so now I'm facing a lot of third level courses all at once. This semester I should survive yet. I've got a first year environmental studies class, and a second year reformational theology class. The rest are classes towards my majors--one second year english class (the British Novel), and then two third year sociology classes (Social Theory and Sociological Research--makes you shudder, eh?). I don't know, it's going to be a lot of reading, but both of my sociology classes have fairly small populations, so I'm going to have to stay on top of things there for sure.

Anyways, there is life outside of class. Contrary to what the profs might want you to believe. I decided to kick around campus this weekend for once, and managed to get decently bored in the process. So many people were gone and not much was going on. I watched a LOAD of movies. I picked up one called Apt Pupil, and it was really interesting. This sixteen year-old highschool senior discovers a bona fide Nazi war criminal hiding in his neighbourhood. This guy was one of the head officers at a few of the major death camps during the second World War. Somehow this kid has balls enough to threaten the old guy enough to tell him all about the death camps. Eventually the tables turn and the kid gets himself into some trouble... and yeah. The movie's a great watch, give me a shout if you want to see it sometime.

Anyhow, have a good one, this has been my speel for tonight.
