The Goblet of Fire

Just finished watching it for only the second time, and the one thing that's running through my head is: Why didn't Peter Jackson do the Harry Potter movies?

It's funny how you watch a movie years later and get all these minute things from it that you didn't earlier. Par example, I'm fuming at the way the final scene with Barty Crouch Jr. was done. I distinctly remember the shock I felt when I read that chapter of the book for the first time; I never saw that coming. I mean, it's one thing to understate the big reveal, and quite another to just deal with it in 2 minutes like it were any other part of the story. Thank you Mike Newell.

Sigh. Saturday is just the worst day to try and get work done. You come off a full week of work, and really, your weekend has just begun, and then you have all these chores to take care of...and just when you think it's time to put in some hours with the books, everyone just decides to, oh I don't know, watch a Harry Potter movie. So much for the iron resolve.

Tomorrow is another day; I'm coming for you Algebra.

Oh Thursday!

As of now, I have a love/hate relationship with Thursdays. It's the one day of the week that I have 8 hours of class (engineering students, you can stop rolling your eyes), and happily, I ALWAYS have two assignments due. Analysis in the morning and Algebra in the afternoon. So for every Thursday, there exists a sleepless Wednesday night. If you got that, you know that was a terrible joke.

It IS Thursday night though, and that means one thing; I don't look at my books. That may not seem like much, but honestly, the feeling of chucking your textbooks aside for one night is as good as it gets in college. So I'm gonna put my feet up, watch a senseless movie, eat some take-out and try and get the Math out of my head, because really, and anyone who does Math can testify to this, it has a nasty habit of sticking in your head even when you know it's time to checkout. I can only hope that this gets better over time, but my gut tells me otherwise.

The chicken wings await me, so I take your leave.

Hello world!

My first ever blog-post-thing. Awesome.
I've been meaning to do this for sometime now, so this is a pretty big moment for me. Cue theme song.

"So what's this blog going to be about," you ask? Honestly, I have no clue whatsoever. I guess we'll both find out together!

I hope this turns out to be fun, and that we'll learn from each other along the way. I don't want to make this post too long (it is the first one!), so I'm going to take your leave. I'll post soon.
