2004- Helluva Year

******October 25, 2008- I managed to locate a few entries from a blog I had in 2004, so I've decided to consolidate them here into my new one. I completely forgot about it and reading the entries is like going through a scrapbook. I realize I'm much more mature now. And by "mature," I mean older and meaner.************************

I think this year's been quite productive. We had a presidential election which saw the reelection of one of the most polarizing presidents in history, a congressional election that gave Republicans a stronger hold in Congress, a bunch of movies, both crappy and phenomenal, and a resurgence in old-school rock. These are, in my opinion, the best things of this past year:

- Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Garden State and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Best movies of the year, by far.

- Jon Stewart's America: The Book. The best book of the year, by far.

- The election. Even though my guy lost (well, my guys- my party got its ass kicked), it was cool to vote in my first ever election.

- Hot Fuss by The Killers, the Garden State soundtrack, Franz Ferdinand and Good News for People Who Love Back News by Modest Mouse are the best albums of this year. Period.

I will be spending the terminus of this year in London, England and am very excited about it. Here's to 2005!

Christmas Fever

I'm so tired of Christmas! And it's still 22 days away! It seems like it starts earlier and earlier each year. I spent the day after Thanksgiving cowering in my room watching the news. I can't believe how crazy people can be when it comes to shopping. I was watching "The Daily Show" earlier this week and they showed footage of this guy walking around a store carrying like 6 DVD players. What is up with that? I personally put all of my Christmas shopping off until the last minute, just like my homework and every other decision I have to make. The good news is, procrastination usually works for me. My papers? I finished them each the night before they were due. Did I do well on them? Probably not. But the point is, they're done. I cannot wait until break starts. Just one more full week of classes, then exams, then it's off to England! I can't wait!
