Return to Normal
So far things have been relatively normal.
Last week I was killed with midterms. I had to study all the time and was basically a zombie for school. I did well though, so it all paid off.
Weekend was fun, went out to dinner with the family, the gf, and krista. I had a good time, and I think everyone else did also.
The week so far has been good. I've gone snowboarding every morning then worked in the afternoons. It has been really nice since I haven't gone riding all year, so to finally hit the slopes for a while was great. I'd just go from 8:30/9 ish until noon or so. Then grab lunch and come home. It was very relaxing, nice to be outside again, plus the weather was great so I could just enjoy the mountains and the outside. I am glad it is getting warm again, finally after school will be able to just go in the mountains around Boulder so will be fun.
I saw the gf last night and we went and saw Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I thought the movie was amazing. The acting, the plot, the direction, it was all great. The relationship between the two characters made me think. I wondered if things hadn't been resolved between the gf and I would I have wanted to erase her as well? Would it really be that much better not having all the tender and comforting moments in order to erase the bad ones? I dont think so on the whole. Even 50 cent knows sunshine wouldn't be so good if it wasn't for rain.

I am happy to hear that life has been going more smoother.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a wonderful movie. I loved how Michel Gondry showed that relationships are real and not fairy tells like most movies tend to do. I enjoyed how Jim Carrey's character, Joel, was growing throughout the film. On of my favorite part is in the end, which is shows how relationships can't be perfect yet that is not a good enough reason not to hold onto or try to establish one. It reminds me of an article I read in Psychology Today.
A creative masterpiece. I am looking forward to watching it tomorrow with my friend Krista and Sunday with two other friends. Such a great movie.

Yea, I was very impressed by this film. Possibly best film since lost in translation that I have watched in the past year or so. The ending is brilliant, I was just in awe. Dont know if you have link to the article but would be interested in reading it.

I share the same feelings. It is the best film I've seen since Lost in Translation. As for the article, I can get it to you sometime tonight because my friend's computer I am using is acting so strange right now.

I can hardly handle one actual gf, you'll have to sign up as mistress then.
