Today I spent most of the time outside of school watching Fight Club. I still haven’t finished it, since I keep having to stop to do other things. But it has been incredible thus far. A bit… typical, perhaps, in some parts, or overbearing, but at least not predictable. It isn’t enlightening, exactly; it’s too ridiculous in places for that. But it’s still one of the best movies I’ve seen in a while. There are so many great quotes from it, I wish I could remember some more. I could probably use a short phrase from that movie as the title of each of my posts for the next month without issue.

Othello was decent. I admit that I did fall asleep during the second half, abruptly awakened when Roderigo and Cassio stab each other and started screaming. And some of the scenes got to be a bit long. But over all it was an enjoyable experience. I’m proud of myself for following what was going on. I felt bad the Nobu Yuki, the Japanese exchange student, who was right in front of me, because there was no way he had any idea what anyone was saying (we could barely figure it out and we’ve been speaking English our entire lives). This was obvious, because he fell asleep (and I talk of all this sleep quite literally, mind you) before anyone else did. We also laughed at all the wrong times. I’m sure there were countless jokes that no one picked up on, and we tended to laugh whenever one of the characters looked ridiculous. There was no way Willy intended us to find Desdemona’s death by strangulation funny, but everyone (including the teachers) laughed uproariously at the antics of the character.

This template of which I am so proud is quickly starting to tire me. I don’t like the colors, they’re fine temporarily but not to look at too often. Next weekend a new one is on the agenda. Until tomorrow….
