Insult me, why don'tcha?

It's enough that he critiqued my short story in class (which realistically he was supposed to do) with such pointed terms. I understand that he disliked it, and that's fine by me.

But apparently not having watched the right movies is a crime against nature, and going to school for 9+ years at the post-secondary level without getting a medical degree is stupid… according to him. And I realize that that makes no sense given that he's also seeking an arts degree of some sort, but somehow his comments actually got to me a little.

Now, I'm used to people railing on me periodically for my lack of movie-watching experience. So this isn't unusual. In fact I kind of like it occasionally when people point out my gaps in popular culture knowledge — particularly since this is a field I like to be familiar with: it's a definite field of personal interest and study… so that wasn't the problem exactly.

Essentially, we ('we' refers to a group as large as 12 people who were in this class) began a long discussion about Watchmen, Bladerunner, Clerks, Sunshine, etc. and it came up that I hadn't seen any of these. To which he responded with some jibes and a comment that I HAD to have seen Because of Winn-Dixie because it was so me. And I was kind of insulted by this limited view of me… given what little I know about that movie (having not actually seen it). He insisted that I had to have seen it, and insisted that that was the only kind of movie I could have seen.

Later we were talking about school and someone asked me how long I'd been in university, to which I answered 9 years… and he very loudly insisted that I should quit, even after asking me what the degrees were and all.

Now why this should get to me is beyond me, given that I'm pretty used to people making snarky comments about such things, or otherwise thinking that I'm bizarre or something for taking so much post-secondary education, and I'm pretty secure in my goals and aspirations in this respect, but really somehow it did. Or at least it affected me enough to want to blog about it.

In other news, the fact that I'm a pile of stress lately probably contributes to my reactions. I've been EXTREMELY tired lately (the past couple of days) ever since my weekend (which included much sleep-schedule ridiculousness), and kind of all-over-the-place with regards to getting things done. So while I do have time these days I'm not necessarily using it effectively (or uneffectively for that matter).

Lately people have been remarking on my pseudo-luddite-ish tendancies…

… and much pointing and laughter has ensued. Why?
– I do not own a cell phone. Apparently this is a travesty of immense proportions. Pointing and laughing actually did happen this weekend. Normally it's just the ridiculing, but really this was crazy!
– I do not Twitter. And people were aghast.
– I have not seen a rather large number of movies. This has been pointed out by more than 5 people recently.
– My home phone is corded.
– I love my magazine subscriptions. And am very frustrated right now that one of my two faves is cancelling its print edition and the other sent out a recession issue that was like 4 postcard-sized pages. I realize that it's a paper magazine, but I'm not overly fond of the online editions of magazines as much as I do occasionally visit them.
– I still send real Christmas cards, and real letters via snail mail.
– I like reading books.
– I somehow fit BETA into general conversation (same with VHS).
– I still own VHS, LPs, and cassette tapes.
– I refuse to own a digital watch (see HHGTTG page 1 for my personal favorite page!), my pocket watch is an actual pocket watch, thank you very much.
– I don't actually download songs and movies etc. for the most part. This is why my mp3 collection is less than 200 files.
– I still own floppy disks (although as of this month, they are no longer in use, all the files having been transfered to my computer).
– Oh, did I mention that I don't own a cell phone?

In other news, I'm still somehow awake today after a few days of craziness: Graham's party was a blast, the UAMC concert was amazing (followed by some good BPs shenanigans), and well I got up on time today and worked. I didn't even hit that brick wall of exhaustion. Shortly I will change into formal wear and head off to the CKI mid-winter formal. And somehow I don't even have circles 'neath my eyes.

In other other news: it feels weird to realize that people you're drinkin' with or hanging out with at a bar/lounge are born in the '90s. Thank goodness I spend a good amount of time with people who are my age and over (then again the amount of time I spend with people who are more than twice my age is probably similar to the time I spend with people born in the '90s…).

Not quite a gripe and moan but…

First complaint: why in tarnation does EVERYTHING have to happen at the same time? This summer is getting more and more complicated to plan for and it hasn't even started yet. Heck, spring barely started. People PLEASE stop planning things for the same exact times as other people. Thanks!

Other complaint: radio going to be a paid subscriber service only (outside the US, UK and Germany, grr!) starting March 30th. While I have contributed in the past there is no way I'm going to pay 6 Euros a month to continue listening to my tunes, at least not regularly. I'm going to go into serious withdrawal. Gah! What else have I been listening to while online since 2005 anyway? I think I will be in serious need of new mp3s. And listening to my overly tiny selection (I think I'm up to 161 or something tiny like that), my CDs and my radio stations. I also don't have the funds at the moment to start buying up everything in sight (afterall, I'm going to be in school until 2012 at this point… and school's not terribly cheap, and I have this darn tendancy to travel…).

In other news: I'm exhausted. It has been a very long day/week. Tomorrow and the weekend are all about fun (plus work shifts but there's only two of 'em to worry about). I have no idea what particularly will happen but it sounds like sleep will be lacking, and I'll see MANY different faces.

I got in!!

I am going to be a graduate student!!!

That was the best email I could have possibly ever received today!

I'm smiling uncontrollably. I'm laughing. I'm shaking. I'm… whoa…

I need to celebrate. Somehow.
