My last week in Friendswood has been about as productive as all the others. Actually, I’ve probably gotten even worse. I sleep most of the day, leave my house even less frequently, and started watching Firefly for the fourth time this summer. I realized some time ago that my love for Firefly is borderline scary. It may be comparable to the way Katie felt about the first season of Veronica Mars (minus the whole “having her opinions dictated to her by television without pity” thing). My ramblings finally convinced my aunt to buy the set, however, which makes it all worth while. Now I’m halfway through watching the series with my mom (we’re on Trash), and she’s loving it.
I’m moving back to Austin on Sunday, which should be great. I can’t wait to arrange my room. I need to paint the walls (any helpers?), find a full box spring on Craigslist, and buy some sort of shelving unit for my DVDs. If anyone wants to help me shop for these things, or help me decorate my room, just give me a call. That’s my discrete way of telling Joanna she will be helping me with every step.
Opinion poll time! The software company I worked at last semester wants to know if I’ll be returning this fall. In the immortal words of the Clash, “should I stay or should I go?” Okay, so that was a bit hokey, but still. Right now I’m caught between my incredible laziness and my greedy desire for even more spending money. I won’t lose sleep over the subject, but some outside opinion could help.
Also, in response to Brandon’s old request, I’ll try to determine where I’ll be in ten years. I’ll be 30 years old, and hopefully living in LA. I’d like to be living in NYC, but chances are I’ll be forced into the Hollywood scene. I will be an entertainment lawyer (JD/MBA) with five years of experience. With any luck I’ll be making enough money to fuel my habit of buying very expensive things and also pay back my parents for law school. I doubt I’ll be married, though I may begin to lighten up to the idea at this age. I’ll be making regular trips to Steph’s luxurious resort in Cambodia, as well as notable filming locations around the world (Vancouver, London, New Zealand). Hopefully I’ll be looking into the idea of producing movies, but that could take a few more years. I’ll probably be too busy working towards making partner in some law firm. Who knows, though? I could get out of law school and decide I don’t want to practice. If I hate law, I could be working anywhere from Wall Street to an International School overseas. Maybe I’ll get lucky and one of my friends will get rich and support me. If I somehow come into enormous wealth, you can bet that you will all have it a lot easier. Bottom line: in ten years I hope to be on my way to full yuppiedom, complete with a nice car, house, and hot girlfriend who wants my money.
What’s everyone think about World Trade Center? I think I’m gonna wait for it to come out on DVD, or maybe I’ll just download it. I can’t wait for the conspiracy nuts in the middle of Nebraska to come out and talk about how the government planned 9/11 and that a plane didn’t really hit the Pentagon because of some grainy, doctored footage they found online.
I bought the sixth season of Dawson’s Creek the other day, so my sister and I now own every season of the seminal teen drama. Expect fall semester to consist of re-watching all of them while ignoring my friends. There will also be Arrested Development marathons once the third season comes out on the 29th.
Brandon, Veronica and I went to go see Strangers with Candy the other day, and it was surprisingly hilarious. I’ve seen a few episodes of the show, which were very inconsistent, but the movie is really great! I thought the actors were all great and we were constantly laughing throughout the screening. It comes out on DVD in November, and I definitely recommend checking it out.
That’s all for now. Everyone enjoy their last few weeks of summer!
