The Medieval Bestseller
I read it somewhere on the Internet...

In the middle of the night, I'd estimate around 2-3 a.m. I woke up to lightning flashes and the sound of pouring rain. I have been leaving my window open (because my room has been SO inexplicably hot) and last night I forgot to put my curtain down. In a sleep-induced haze, I groggily peered out of the window for like 5 minutes trying to figure out where I was. I had absolutely no clue. Furthermore, I couldn't figure out if I flew to be where I was now or if I drove. Although I thought it was possible that I flew, I couldn't remember getting on a plane earlier that day, so I figured that I probably drove. Then after another minute or so, thinking of all of the places I possibly could have driven to, I realized where I was. I wasn't anywhere - I was in Princeton, in my room that I'm in every single day, sleeping in my bed that I sleep in every single night, looking upon the soggy grounds that have become home. Maybe being out of town for five of the past seven weekends is affecting my ability to orient myself to my surroundings.

I finished my paper early last night, so I decided the absolute last thing I was going to do was start on my two remaining finals. So, I decided to see a movie. Initially I was going to try to see Hot Fuzz with the Shed, but he was in Philadephia and wouldn't be able to return for a showing. So Emily and I saw In the Land of Women. I had seen the previews for the movie and thought it looked good, but totally forgot about it until Emily mentioned that she wanted to see it. So, we went and we had the whole, entire theatre to ourselves (which is one of my most favorite things in the world!). After the movie, Emily turned to me and said, "So, what did you think?" And the thing was that although it looked great in the trailers, I actually did not like the movie at all. I thought they tried to do too much and I thought the characters weren't believable. And she said, "I figured you probably didn't like it because I really liked it. I thought the characters were really believable." So, there you go. If you think your movie tastes line up more with Emily, see the movie. If they line up more with mine, stay away.

I'm currently in first in my Fantasy NASCAR league (and have been in first the past few weeks), which is officially awesome particularly because I don't watch any of the races. I just let everything ride on my strategic genius. So because I'm in first, I want to put some smack-talk on the message board, but I fear that once I do that I will plummet in the standings. Decisions, decisions.

Well, today was my official last class of seminary and it feels awesome. Now I only have two things remaining - one final exam and one final 15-20 page paper. And then I'm really done, and it will be none too soon! I have really no plans to celebrate, but maybe I should go out and get a beer tonight or something in celebration.
