Catching Up

It has been three days since the first day of the new semester and guess what I've been doing besides brooding and cursing the unstable internet connection. I've been downloading tv series, movies and reading storybook. Noticed there's no education related activities in it. Chill man, its just the first week.

I was catching up on tv series that I didn't follow up on when I was working. Namely Desperate Housewives, Heroes and Ugly Betty. Though those only took a day to finish watching. Disappointing that there were very little episodes to watch. Screenwriter protests... They better pick up the pace and be quick about it!

Then I was in the mood of digging up old movies that I've not watched. Just finished watching Stardust and I love it. Love the book too but I read that aeons ago and I don't exactly remember the storyline. I've also downloaded Apocalypto and The Phantom of The Opera (sudden craze for musicals since Sweeney Todd).

Thank goodness for campus internal network. Lots of things to download from. Piracy rules!

Currently I'm reading The Golden Compass. I love the book thus far. Way better than the movie I think. I thought the movie was too rush and I just don't like rush movies. I still haven't gotten around to read Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows and The Velvet Rage too...

I'm such a slow reader...

Back to watching movies.

You mean The Phantom of the Opera. Unless you tell me someone burnt Oprah Winfrey...

I'm sure you know I've recently finished the trilogy of 'His Dark Materials' which consists of 'The Golden Compass' as the first book, 'The Subtle Knife' and final one is 'The Amber Spyglass'.

The book is definitely way better than the movie. And when you finished the first book, you will know why some parts are not explained because it is a controversial book afterall talking about Christianity and the God that made Adam and Eve.

The second book is even better than 'The Golden Compass' but I was kinda disappointed with the third final book as it's too long and the ending is not satisfactory. Some say it sucks but it's for you to find out.

Calvin: I noticed some of those elements even in the movie. Its very obvious.

Though the line, "I'll just be a little cut." reminded me of circumcision. Hahahha.
