the patron saint of mediocrity

I saw Eclipse last night. Yes, that Twilight movie. I agreed to see it because the first two were unintentionally hilarious. I mean, the whole movie-going situation seemed like a prank. They call all of that blinking and stuttering acting? And I paid for this? It was the kind of joke that I was apart of. It's healthy to laugh at yourself often.

But Eclipse left me angry. It was fun to laugh at how utterly unreal those emotions were and the fact that the actors didn't seem to give a shit in the first two. This one seem like it was trying to be a movie on it's own and it failed. It wasn't a "so-bad-so-good" situation. It was just bad, period. I didn't even appreciate Taylor Lautner's body. He just looked like sqinty-eyed jailbait. Meh.

My boss thinks I love Twilight. Every time she catches me on ONTD, I'm scrolling past a huge picture of Robert Pattinson. Or that Ronaldo guy. You know, the Portuguese football dude. It's really embarrassing.

So I took the GRE and I thought I did well until I looked at the average scores for the grad programs I'm applying to. I'm not shocked - standardized testing is like my achilles heel. It shouldn't stop me from applying anywhere, but my heart just isn't in it anymore. I mean, I definitely want to go back to school at some point. I just don't know exactly what I would like to get a graduate degree in. That shit is expensive, and you can't eat, wear, or live in diplomas.

I'm thinking about trying to find a new job at the end of the summer. I know I just started my job, but I figure it'll take a year or so to find something else. I've learned that I'd rather not spend most of my day in front of a computer. I'm dying to work in the arts or entertainment, but I know that's going to be a tough nut to crack. I promised myself that if nothing shows up in a year, I'm preparing a Plan B. I'm working on that one - it's a crazy idea, but it's probably the best I've ever had. We'll see if I chicken out of that one.

Anyway, that was a whole lot of nothing.
