Spring Break 2009! Time for explosive fun in the Florida sun, alchoholic daydreams, stupid promiscuity, and pointless debauchery. Or if you are a nerd like me, time for staying on campus with your girlfriend and doing pretty much nothing. For the past half-week, I have been staying up inexcusably late, just wasting time. Last night specifically, I watched the seven final episodes of Firefly, the failed space Western that later returned in the form of a kick butt movie called Serentity.
I loved it. It turns out that the successful shows just appeal to dumb people more. Other examples of kick butt culture that were economic failures in an in anti-intellectual all-American league include GATTACA, Shawshank Redemption, the original Star Trek, and pretty much anything else with a plot. Let this be a lesson to you: when staying on campus during spring break because you are a nerd, read critic reviews in order to waste your time optimally. That being said, I feel guilty today.
Though I spent more than seven hours last night in pure euphoria, I started at midnight, afterwards sleeping for about ten hours. I woke up at 4:00 today, and I feel mighty lazy. But my girlfriend rooted every attempt I made at my organic chemistry textbook. She seems intent on stopping all my scrooge-like urges.
Well, I still have half my spring break to accomplish something. I am thinking that eventually, nature has to stop this unholy cycle. It's just not right.
