This is the 6th anxiety attack i’ve had in the last week and a half and it’s really starting to interfere with my sleep.  How am I supposed to pull 16 hours days on 6 or less hours of sleep? ….guess I’ll find out tomorrow.

Going out drinking! Probably the best I’ll look all night. Maybe someone will buy me a drink……maybe I’ll meet someone and buy them drink, who knows.

I feel so proud when friends tell me their parents like me. Like damn right they do, I am a delight.

the reason male comic book fans work themselves into a frenzied rage over “fake geek girls" is because they think they can’t get a girlfriend because of their love for comic books (a.k.a nerdiness). if they accept that geek girls genuinely love comic books, then they’re left with the cold harsh reality that it’s not their nerdiness that makes them unattractive to women, but the fact that they are misogynistic condescending dickbags who need to be avoided AT ALL COSTS

And the topping on the vacation cake was coming home to a 700 dollar bonus check from work. Fuck yeah. 

So I just got back from vacation.  I was gone for 10 days, during which one of my roommates and I drove down to this place called Assateague Island in Maryland to go camping.  It was awesome! The sights were beautiful, the camp grounds literally had wild horses just running around, and the beach was lovely.  It was very humid while we were down there so we sweat our asses off, but it was well worth it.  We went and visited some of my friends in Long Island on the way home as well as stopping to say hi to my mom in Connecticut.  It was a fantastic trip, but I’m so glad to be home! It was around 26 hours and 1300 miles of driving total! I’m pooped!

Some villains… :)

I have been super inactive on tumblr lately.  I’d like to say it’s cause I moved to Burlington and my life has gotten super exciting, but I know it’s just because I have been so god damn busy. BUT, it has paid off.  I applied to grad school AND I GOT IN. I’m so excited! I’ll be starting classes in August and once I’m done I’ll have a Masters in Education through the Applied Behavior Analysis Program.  After that I just have to take some tests and get certified and I’ll be a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.
Also, here is a picture of my face.

Unlike Godzilla, Pacific Rim doesn’t try to be serious even when it’s being serious. Characters have names like Stacker Pentecost and Hercules Hansen. The film requires you to believe that the best way to battle a giant monster is to build an even larger robot to fight that monster.

Much of the Act 2 drama derives from inter-pilot tension airlifted from the Val Kilmer scenes in Top Gun. It’s the polar opposite of the Godzilla school of drama, where everyone is a total professional who has absolutely no personal goal besides Saving The World. In Pacific Rim, Idris Elba is Rinko Kikuchi’s Obi-Wan Kenobi, and two of the last Giant Robot-pilots in the world frequently get into sneering fights over who’s the bigger badass, and Charlie Day is a scientist.

So, for all these reasons, Pacific Rim is a movie that I’ve heard perfectly smart people describe as “stupid” or “silly.” The problem with this line of thinking is that, really, that every blockbuster is pretty “silly,” in the context of Things Adults Should Care About. Godzilla is not less stupid than Pacific Rim just because people frown more. […]

The difference, I think, is that Pacific Rim glories in its own silliness. There’s a flashback scene where Idris Elba rescues a little girl, and when he emerges from his giant robot, the sun shines upon him like he’s the catharsis in a biblical epic. There’s a moment when one giant robot swings an oil tanker like a sword. Then it grows a sword out of its wrist. Then it falls from space to earth.

There are real complaints to make about Pacific Rim, I guess, all of them fair and most of them pedantic. I know a lot of people who have issues with the story. (“Why didn’t they use the wrist-sword earlier?” is a popular one.) Conversely, I don’t really know anyone who minds the story in Godzilla, possibly because everything stupid that happens is prefaced by Frowning Watanabe saying “This is why the stupid thing that’s about to happen makes sense.” Godzilla wants so badly to make sense. Pacific Rim wants so badly for Ron Perlman to wear golden shoes.

*EMPHATIC UPWARD GESTURES* First thing I said after Godzilla: “Two hours. And not a single joke.”

THIS is the fundamental failure of the film. You cannot make us give a shit about white tear-bots if they possess no emotion other than indignant anguish. Give me Pacific Rim any day.
