I’ve been relatively busy the last couple days, with everyone getting back and getting ready for another semester of school. My schedule isn’t as nice as last semster; I ended up with all of my days starting at either 830 or 930. Monday morning means Software Specifications and Discrete Mathematics and Logic II, so lots of math on monday morning. I ended up with better marks this semester than last year, so I guess I’m doing something right.
I went out with dave on thursday night to see Mulholland Dr. and on friday night to see The Royal Tenenbaums. They are two of the better movies out this year and I would highly recommend both. Mulholland Dr. can be a bit of a mindfuck, but I managed to figure it out for the most part by the end of the movie. The Royal Tennenbaum’s is directed by Wes Anderson, the same guy who did Rushmore and Bottle Rocket, so the humour is a little bit out there for some people. Gene Hackman and Luke Wilson had great performances, the tennis sequence had me almost rolling on the floor laughing. I also watched Chocolat the other night, it was a pretty good movie, but I found that it was forgettable.
pent most of the afternoon at Golden Words writing articles and having them rejected. Oh well, I still ended up with two things going in the paper. Last night, I went out for a couple of pints with Eilis and Deb. We initially went out looking for my housemate Andrew, but the place we were supposed to meet at was closed. He ended up at one of the places we figured he wouldn’t be unless dragged by someone else. At any rate, a fun night was had by all. Right now, I’m attempting to do some cleaning and organizing of my room. Obviously, it’s going quite well.
