Being in front of the "crowd" of five other students today, I realized how hard our prof has had to work each week. She's pulling teeth to get people to actually talk. They're grad students who don't seem to have opinions. It's ... WEIRD. But she thanked me profusely for my presentation, so hey, I'm doing brilliantly right now. And she brought a book in on the film that I hadn't seen, and she basically told me that's what I'm doing my work for the semester on (and part of me is like "NOOOOOO I don't want to be assulted by the film again!" and the other part is like "YAY! I SO CAN TALK ABOUT THIS FILM" so ... it'll work out, it will). It was thrilling and lovely and brilliant and part of me didn't want to leave the room at the end.
Then we watched a 2-hour movie called Kaidan. And now I'm (thankfully) back home.
