Welcome Back, To Hell

I'm going back to school on Monday. I've been dreading this day and thought all week. The knowledge of having to go back to school: back to the lack of sleep, to the horrible cooking, eating out everyday BECAUSE of horrible cooking, the hate for life, the loss of weight, the...too much to talk about.

What did I do today? Nothing for most of the day. Went and ate In & Out for the first time this break: double-double, fries, and a vanilla shake. Won't be having that for a long time either now. Also saw Catch Me If You Can, which I had heard was a good movie and I must concur. It was one of the better movies I have seen in a long time, not just because of all around acting, but because of the story, and the way it ends.

I really am a sucker for the "happy endings" in stories. For instance, I liked the happy version of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations better than the real ending, even though everyone says the real ending is better and he just wrote the happy ending to satisfy the masses. Maybe in this way, I'm part of the masses. I don't like stuff ending sadly, just for the sake of art. Really, who gives a shit about art? Movies are entertainment and happy endings are more entertaining to me than sad, teary movies that poseurs walk out saying, Now that was art!

Now I don't claim that all movies should have happy endings, because not all stories end happily, but once in a while it's refreshing to have a movie that ends well. That's all I'm saying. Please don't consider this small admission to be evidence of the fact that I have feelings or a heart, because that's not true and we all know that.
