It’s one of those nights when you get off work and you just want to relax.
I pushed my way through some exercise at home–and that’s after running this morning before work–and I even managed to edit a chapter. Work is done for the day and so am I.
I can honestly say that despite my passion for movies, I’ve never gone to the movies by myself. Tonight, I think I will be breaking that record and going to see Silver Linings Playbook. It’s either that or stay at home and watch Shame, starring Michael Fassbender.
Both movies look incredible and it really comes down to whether or not I’m too lazy to get in the car and sit by myself in a theater because no one I know wants to go see Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper for two hours. The fools. I’m not sure which I’ll decide to do, but I can promise a review for Silver Linings Playbook on The Now if I go see that.
I just hope I don’t get raped on my night on on the town by my lonesome. That would be horrible. And probably ruin my Valentine’s Day plans considerably.
It’s been one strangely stressful week, but alas there is a minor vacation on the horizon. It’s a good thing too, I’m gonna need it before my big interview next Wednesday. Nothing like a trip with the family to Disney World to distract from being prepared for a very difficult interview.
There is only one thing standing between me and a stress-free couple of days. A 15 hour-long shift. Sigh. I’m going to be working–willingly–between 7am and 10:30pm tomorrow. That’s what I like to call torture, kids. But I’m something of a masochist, so I guess it’s okay.
I have to use the time tomorrow for a meeting, interviews for other employees, and then working a closing shift. Will I get anything creative done at all? No. Will I die? Potentially. But work needs to be done and I’m taking work seriously at the moment. Plus, I have to make sure that I’m prepared for my interviews a week in advance.
I spent thirty minutes of my life watching one of the greatest American films of all time: Point Break (RIP Patrick Swayze). That was the highlight of my day so far. It is also the start of a peaceful evening before I have to hit the hay. I’m not editing tonight, or writing. My brain is beyond exhausted to do anything that involves thinking. Hence Point Break.
I’m in the mood for television. I’m stuck between watching Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or starting Deadwood. Decisions, decisions. Maybe I’ll just sleep instead like a responsible adult?
