Envious of movie montages

A similar feeling that I usually get during my month of exams, has at last returned for my 4th school exam period. The feeling is an ache for a wonderful movie style montage of my month. I can see it now…..

1. I take my books out of my bag and slam a heavy textbook on the desk, I open it.

2. I stare blankly at a computer screen

3: I write ferouisly on a piece of paper, titled: study notes

4. Drinking coffee

5. Drinking redbul

6. Falling asleep, a friend pokes me awake

7. Surrounded by a pile of books, It is a wonder how I will get out

8. Random push- up scene to follow the montage code

9. Close up on a calendar with a day circled in red with “Exam” ¬†written

10. Walking nervously to a large auditorium with desks

11. staring blankly

12. Walking out and throwing my notes in the trash

The music would be upbeat and intense. The whole montage would only last about 2 minutes. It would be painless, easy.

But, I always come to the conclusion that my life is not a movie and I have to put in the work. When I am back in a month I will be expanding my blog, and putting up everything I had hoped it would be when I started it.

Sick on the weekend= lots of movies watched

So from my title its obvious I was sick this weekend. Well I may have also watched 4 movies this weekend. They were all pretty good actually which is unusual. I am not a harsh movie critic but I do decide based on the feeling after a movie.

1. Minority Report: really cool and sci fi with an uncalled for ending and plot.

2. Dragon Heart: Kind of old and slower, but still really touching.

3. Lucky Slevin: I really liked this, I vaguely remeber seeing it before but the writing is just awesome, and it really surprises you at the end.

4. Shawshank Redemption: BY FAR MY FAVORITE. This movie deserves its rank high on movie lists. It is everything you want in a movie: powerful characters, conflict, moving, and with a pace. This movie left me feeling so high spirited and thoughtful.

“Get busy livin’ or get busy dyin’ ” is just one of the many amazing quotes in this movie. Watch it! I can’t describe the emotions it invokes.

Well it’s sunday now, Sunday means study time…..
