oneiro: seita and setsuko (grave of the fireflies)
As usual, I've had an emotionally tumultuous past couple of days. And, as they always do, things have settled down, and I'm back at just hanging around at my boyfriend's all weekend, playing video games and not being exactly sober. It's a cocktail that works for us, don't judge. =P

But wow, okay. Let me try to sort out my life as of late.

As for school, things are going well. Been turning in everything on time, and I have some assignments that I'm actually pretty excited about doing. For my graphic novels course, I have to compare a text we've read with an external text, and I think I'm going to go for the Cowboy Bebop manga. I have to go through my issues to make sure I can draw sufficient parallels so that I can actually make it work, but I'm hoping I can manage it. :) For my middle eastern class, we have to write a 15-20 page paper on "The Book of Khalid" and it has to be intertextual, so basically... super vague, we can talk about it in relation to anything pretty much. And I'm going to be comparing and relating Khalid's character and quest, as well as Sufism, to shamanism, and the entheogenic/psychedelic experience. This is something I'm passionate about, so I'm really lucky I found it, because I'm going to be spending a lot of time on this paper.

As for games, I just ordered .hack (the first one) and White Knight Chronicles. White Knight I can only play at home because it's a PS3 game, so I only got a little bit into it, but it seems really vast and fun. I can't wait to get into the online aspect of the game. .hack I started here at my boyfriend's, and it's weird as hell, but I like it so far. And, of course, I've been playing an assload of Phantasy Star Portable 2, going on random missions with random people and annihilating galactic monsters. Fun times had by all.

I watched Contact last night, which I had seen a long time ago but didn't remember much (except for the beautiful scene where she finally encounters the alien), and DAMN that movie is so good. Like, fuck. Fuck shit. That movie is so good. IT'S SO GOOD. Watch it. 

Do it.
