I'm going to comment on the Oscars. They've been called boring, and in fact they were supposedly the least watched Oscars in a long time. Frankly, I enjoyed them. I didn't watch the Red Carpet ridiculousness, but the awards show itself was fun. It gave me a lot of ideas for movies to put in the ol' Netflix queue.
Politics: I still have no idea who I'm going to vote for. I'm still a Republican, so do I vote for McCain? Meh. Obama? Hillary? Seems unlikely. There is no good candidate. If ever there was a year in which I could not vote and still maintain the right to complain, this is it.
Life: School is going well. I'm enjoying my classes. I have ethics, Gospels, Intro to Counseling and Christian Imagination. I have found enjoyable points in each class. The readings have been excellent. Annie Dillard, N.T. Wright, Stanley Hauerwas . . . the list goes on. Sweet stuff. Hopefully I'll have something of substance to post here as a result of these readings.
In closing, stay beautiful. Only you can prevent forest fires. Watch Futurama. Follow Christ. That last one was serious.
