Just an Update

I am writing this right before going to bed at 2:15 a.m., so forgive me if I am at all incoherent; I’m sure that, at the very least, I will be random. Anyway, today (as in Wednesday, April 13th) marked two years that I have been with my boyfriend Ray, so that was something special; we are going to celebrate this weekend by going into town and doing some fun things such as hitting up the Coffee Connection and seeing a movie (Scream 4). I just really hope that isn’t going to rain, because otherwise, we may have to invest in a couple of umbrellas (as long as Oswego doesn’t display its usual ferocity of winds, as well, that is).

I am currently catching up with the Scream films so that I can see the fourth one this weekend. I really love Wes Craven and am enjoying the films. Last week, I saw the original Last House on the Left film, and I can’t really say that I enjoyed that; it was the strangest and probably the most disturbing movie that I have ever seen, but I absolutely love the new one. Something that I really love about Craven is that his films are not what I would consider the “typical” horror film, because by the end of the movie, the hunter usually becomes the hunted, and revenge is sought out and achieved, and going even beyond that, I have recently noticed that it is usually the female(s) that accomplish this, so perhaps, Craven is a bit of a feminist, which is very cool.

Anyway, on Saturday, April 30th, I am playing in a kickball tournament here on campus. Do not get me wrong; I am, by no means, an athlete, so it is really just for fun and was not ultimately my idea (that would be Ray). I am looking forward to it, but at the same time, I have my reservations. Like I said, I’m not an athlete, and I have no coordination, so I’m worried about just making myself look ridiculous, and also, it is for three hours, which is a very long time to play kickball, especially if it’s going to be hot and sunny that day; I guess we will just have to wait and see how it turns out. I don’t mean to be negative, because I’m sure that it will be fun. Anyway, signing off for now, as it is getting very late, and I am exhausted.
