- One of my big plans for the summer is to study and prep for Praxis I (the first round of tests that I need to pass in order to be officially accepted into my school's teacher education program). This means, most likely, buying a couple study manuals, taking a couple practice tests, and stressing like nobody's business. I've taken the PSAT, the SAT, and the GED, plus tons of exams in college, so it's not like this is unfamiliar territory. That still doesn't help my testing anxiety. Oh well. The only way out is through.
- My sister bought Logan on DVD a few days ago. Last night we finally sat down to watch it. I have to admit that I zoned out a bit (it was my third time seeing it and I'm still not completely emotionally recovered from the first two times, so), especially towards the end, but this is still such an amazingly good movie. It was also fun picking up on even more ways that it parallels or contradicts themes from Shane ("I don't like guns." and "There aren't any more guns in the valley."; "You're going to have to learn to live with it." vs. "There's no living with it, the killing.").
- I'm honestly not too sure about my plans for this weekend. Obviously I'll try to get some writing done. I've also got a Carl Hiaasen book I need to finish reading, and a bedroom I should probably clean. That's about it. I'm not sure yet if I'm bored or happy to get the chance to do basically nothing. Doing basically nothing gets old pretty fast, especially during summer break, and I haven't been able to find a steady summer job, which just makes it worse.
That's about it for me. Anyone else got more exciting weekend plans?
