Misc Life Updates

Hey everyone. Theres been a lot of random stuff I've wanted to write about but I've been holed up in my room watching Dawson's Creek on dvd. It totally brings me back to being 16 again!

Anyways I've cancelled my Luxe Box subscription. They automatically renewed it and charged it to my visa, but then I wrote them and said I would like to cancel it. A very nice man wrote me back saying he would refund my Visa and would appreciate if I could take a few minutes to explain why I was cancelling. So I did write them back and now I am waiting for that refund to show up on my visa. I am now currently waiting for my Glymm box.

In more exciting news, I've officially got my passport!! I was so excited when I got it, mostly because it came a lot faster than expected. It said about 20 business days, which is about a month and I got it in about 2 weeks. Of course I look like some sort of fugitive in my picture but I guess that's how it goes eh?

Last weekend I went to see the film My Week With Marilyn which was playing at our local film festival. I had been wanting to see this movie and in my latest obsession with watching Dawsons Creek dvd's, Michelle Williams quickly became my new favourite. When I heard this movie was at our film fest I had to see it! I got my mom to go with me and I'm really glad we went. The film was really quite good. I had never seen any of Marilyn's movies or knew much about her but the oscar buzz over this movie got me interested. Michelle does an amazing job in the movie and if she doesn't win the Oscar I might have to boycott Hollywood. Speaking of her movies has anyone seen Blue Valentine?? I've never seen it and am interested in it, I think I will rent it this weekend.

Did anyone watch the Superbowl half time show? I don't get football at all, but when I heard Madonna was going to to the half-time show, I thought I should tune in. I thought it was really good. She is going on tour this year and I thought it might be fun to go see her in concert, but I don't know of anyone that would want to go with me.

So far my course this semester is going ok. It is not a very heavy course, at least not yet which has been great. Basically I've just had to read some material and participate in some group discussions about it. Our first project is next week which I am nervously anticipating because I honestly haven't been devoting a lot of time or effort into the course so far. I'm just kind of sick of the whole thing and cannot wait to be done. Luckily this is my last course!
