So That’s All Done With
.My exams are done with and my project is handed in. I actually didn’t fully finish the project and that’s my own damn fault. I’m improving though as its the only project so far this year that I haven’t handed complete. I’m not overly worried and it was down to me anyway. For some reason I just couldn’t motivate myself and I don’t know why. I do think, however, this won’t effect me again this term.
Switch topic though, the Steelers made to the divisional final after defeating the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Its the first time in history the 6th seed team has made it to the final and I really do hope we beat Denver and make it to the Superbowl. Its been interesting to watch the Steelers this season. With the prospect of getting cable at our new place I may be able to watch more games next season.
I also got my DVD order from Amazon today, the Back to the Future box set which is really cool. I love my 80s movies as I honestly do think they were a lot more original and creative. Budgets for movies were a lot more limited than the $30million blockbusters we get today. That isn’t to say good movies aren’t made with that kind of money. It’s just things were a lot more “real” in the sense that since they couldn’t painstakingly recreate places on computer. They had think of other ways of doing it.
The first BTTF film, there were only 31 special effects shots compare that with some of todays movies and I hope you see what I mean. Either way I love the BTTF trilogy and I now have my favourite 5 multi-film movies in my collection (Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, Alien, Star Wars and now Back to the Future).
I’m also going home this weekend for my Mum’s 60th birthday. It’ll be the first time I’ve seen my family since my Grandpa’s birthday a few months ago as I wasn’t at home at Christmas. It should be interesting. I’m going to take my laptop and show them photos of our recent trip to Australia and I’m sure my dad and brother will be interested in the shots I took of the WACA. It’ll be nice to see them all again as I probably won’t see my sister and brother until the wedding in July.
