Perspective: get one got one [May. 30th, 2010|12:50 am]

Now I just read Kameko's post and feel like I shouldn't be bitching about anything. Perspective is everything I guess; too bad perspective can suck.

What to do, what to do [May. 30th, 2010|12:44 am]

Sat down and mapped out my fourth year courses, only to realize that I will have to take 6 courses in one semester and 5 in another should I wish to grad at the end of the year. Add to the fact that I need a fairly impressive GPA to get into the school psych program and I am pretty much screwed in the pooch. I don't think I could handle another year at UNBC though, that means I would be 25 by the time I graduate. That thought alone sends me spiraling into a fit of depression. I hate growing up, I think I'd rather stay young and stupid forever. Plus I want to freakin travel and see the world. What do you do when the world demands one thing of you but your soul craves something much different?

We Want Talent [Mar. 11th, 2010|01:28 pm]

Picked up another copy of Billy Talent 1 after the concert.
Haven't listened to it in well over 2 years. I forgot how much I listened to it back in what? Grade 10? The power of the vocals and harsh strumming and the angst.
OH THE ANGST.
As I sit listening to "This is How it Goes" I find myself talking along, amazed that I remember the lyrics, I don't even remember remembering the lyrics. Does that make sense? That I can remember something I don't remember having known before, not the fact itself but the time period of having known that fact?
OH AND LIES I LOVE LIES, it wasn't even the best song on the thing but it was still my favorite.

I wonder if there is some significance to that?

So randomly some guy stops me in the halls yesterday and starts talking about Rugby.

REALISTIC ME: Oh Matt, get out, get out now.

He kept going on about how I should play because I look like a rugby player blah blah blah next thing I know Im at the university pub at a rugby club meeting.

OPTIMISTIC ME: Hey, this wont be so bad, I can play a sport and get into shape.
REALISTIC ME: Matt, what are you doing? You will not fit in with these guys and you know it, you dont speak of hearty grogg or the laying of women.
OPTOMISTIC ME: Whatever, I'm sure they are not the big jock group stereotype.

RANDOM PRESIDENT GUY: Okay lets introduce ourselves by saying our name, where we are from and our favorite sexual position.

OPTOMISTIC ME: ... Monkey pulling the turnip
REALISTIC ME: HA, HA, HA HA HA

I just wish the sports could be taken without the alpha male mentality.

Have you ever seen one of those America's funniest home videos where a kid is playfully torturing a cat and the the cat snaps, hurting or scratching or otherwise maiming the brat? Well I lived that the other night, of course theres a bit of a twist. Y'see I was babysitting a friend's kid and there I am with little 6 year old Hayden and he's swinging his cat Frankie back and forth by his legs. Normally I would be concerned but the cat isnt making noise or showing any signs of distress, so I wasn't too too worried, but to be safe I tell Hayden to put down the cat. Then Hayden gets a nice evil gleam in his eyes and takes a few small steps closer to me. Synapses fire and I realize what he plans to do, but before I could threaten him with a six foot deep grave in the back yard the cat is flying straight towards me... I was impressed though, the cat was like spiderman and I was like.. a wall. Except there were retractable claws involved instead of sticky fingers.

... maybe thats more like Wolverine?

1st week of school MaDNesS [Sep. 10th, 2009|11:49 pm]
chojo_87
Yeah so I don't normally post my going's on in life, neither written or electronically written, I mostly hang on to this account to keep tabs on friends and post "oooh golly gee that Matt" comments. This year however I think I'm gonna try to keep one going so long as I have interesting things happening.

So break down of my first week back at school

Kicked things off by going to a party at Shane lake, I had never gone there before by means of the trails behind the university but I fortunately had a random guy named Cody who was guiding the way for foreign exchange students show me where to go. As soon as I got there I met a bunch of Drama club people from last year and left right away. Gonna try to steer clear of Drama club this year, It really burned me out last time. However I have a feeling it will be difficult.

-Carpooling with duobat, gonna see how that works out, hopefully it will be cost effective.

- I am worried Intermediate Television studies is not gonna be quite what I wanted. Yes, Professor I am fairly aware of the conservative networks and the strings they pull what with product placement, censorship and the maximization of profit with minimization of financial risk blah blah blah can we talk about Firefly and the Whedonverse now? please?

- Biopsychology is gonna rock my socks, I am so psyched (haha pun). The prof is pretty cool, I might even get to do research with her this semester.

- Abnormal Psychology I can do a paper on the etiology of a sexual dysfunction or paraphilia. Ever heard of Inflatophilia? Interesting stuff. Disturbing, I mean you may never look at those blow up hammers you win at the fair the same way again, but definitely interesting.

- Health Psychology should be cool, the text can be pretty boring but the instructor has gotten a teaching groove on. I had her for personality last semester and she has grown and gotten more confident which is great to see.

- Had stats at CNC for the first time today, I am definitely worried about this class but the prof seems nice and open for any help we might need. Also the college has a really different feel to it then the uni, its almost... do I wanna say friendlier? The profs seem nicer, there's a lot more going on there to make you feel more comfortable at the school and it feels a lot less intimidating. This could easily change down the road though, who knows.

Also thinking of joining the crisis intervention hot-line, there was a booth at school, they train you and everything... costs 50 bucks though.

Went to the gym and did weights for the first time since like... grade 10 phys ed? Anyway its been three days and I can still barely move them so PROGRESS! Or muscle damage...

but yeah that's week one, oh and I like Glee, yeah I said it, I even downloaded their version of Don't Stop Believin' onto my Ipod. Of course you cant compare it to Journey, but its still a damn good cover. And I think the writing is pretty sharp, not like piercing blade sharp but surprise! ow oh crap paper cut sharp, like you're not expecting it.

"Racheal did you just throw up?"
"No"
"You missed the toilet"
"The girl who was throwing up before me left that. I tried but I guess I don't have a gag reflex."
"One day when you're older that will turn out to be a gift."

Some men just want to watch the world burn... [Jul. 19th, 2008|02:39 pm]

Yeah so I know there has been a lot, and I mean A LOT of hype surrounding The Dark Knight, what with its crazy viral marketing campaign, the amazingness of Ledger's Joker and his subsequent death, but I'm just here to tell you one thing...

IT LIVES UP TO IT AND ASCENDS

This is coming from a guy who knew some of the most shocking parts going into the movie and I was still amazed. I saw it last night and want to see it again TODAY, but everybody is busy.

The movie sucks you in and just does not let go. Every time the pace starts to settle for just a second, a major explosion or suspense filled event occurs. Ledger COMPLETELY steals the movie... every scene he's in you just cant stop looking at him; he's funny, hypnotic and you're both excited and afraid to see what he's going to do next. The relationship between him and the Batman is everything its supposed to be, Nolan is a superb director and co-writer. Like the Joker says in the movie, "I don't want to kill you (Batman), you complete me." Bale again does a great job of capturing the Bruce Wayne/Batman dynamic, my only complaint: not a big fan of the Batman voice. I am thinking of going to vancouver JUST to see it in IMAX because the scope and tone of the cinematography is so aw-inspiring on a regular screen that I cannot comprehend it one three times larger. Aaron Eckhart captures his role perfectly as Harvey Dent and his darker half Two-Face. He plays the character so that you will see him as a tragic victim, rather than a villain.
