What I Do With My College Days

I know many of you have been curious how I, Cinefille, a very busy college student, maintains this blog, my little haven for those obsessed with movies.
It’s very simple actually. On a typical day, I usually avoid doing most of my work.
Like at this very moment, I should be writing a thesis statement for a speech I have to deliver in my Gender Studies class next Wednesday, but instead I am knitting, listening to NPR, and deciding whether or not my bamboo plant has died.
At 9, I have to go to a screening of Salt of the Earth which I’m writing my speech in Gender Studies is about so if you’ve ever seen this movie and feel like engaging your brain in some feminist theory, by all means, knock yourself out.
In film class next week we’re watching Schindler’s List. There is nothing like a series of Holocaust films to really brighten your day.
Finals begin in two weeks. I have four papers, two presentations and one exam to look forward to. Can’t you sense my excitement?
Worst of all, my campus, although it is gorgeous (you can see the mountains from the highest floor in library), has lost it’s charm without any leaves on the trees. (The picture is of my dorm in October.)
And some last minute advice for anyone enrolling in college course or planning to enjoy their life. Never, ever take statistics.
So instead of deciding which glorious piece of my schoolwork I will do first, I am procrastinating.
And I could really use a nap.
All this “work” is worth it though. I get six weeks off from school from December 20 to January 28.
An email from my mom.
Hey –

I just happened to look at your blog. I hope you’re exaggerating your lack of work ethic.

Love, Mom

  1. I like that you listen to NPR while studying. I love NPR. Of course, I mostly like it for A Prairie Home Companion.
