Downton Abbey is like, Upper Class Crack

You know that I must have been very busy with class studies and work to not update in a week. Since the last post, it was a congratulations to the Detroit Tigers for sweeping the Yankees to go on to the World Series. And what a difference a friggin' week later makes. The Tigers were swept up themselves and tossed in a rubbish bin by the San Francisco Giants. Karma? No... the Giants were just a better team. Oh well...

School and work has me busy, and I spent all this weekend working on a paper for my Communications Activism class. I will turn the paper in on Tuesday, but I have already had to start working on the details for my class project. I'm  thinking about creating a website/blog for my project and I will have to give a demonstration of how it is suppose to work. I'm partnering up with a classmate that I worked on a big presentation project last term, we're a good team, and I'm hopeful she likes my idea.

So because I had a breakthrough in my studies this weekend, I treated myself to Season 2 of Downton Abbey, courtesy of Prime. Now, I only  just discovered amazon prime just two weeks ago. I read a review of a movie somewhere, and the person made reference to watching it streaming on amazon prime. If you have an amazon prime membership, you can stream select movies/TV shows and videos, for free! I was able to treat myself to Season 2 of Sherlock last week, and on Saturday and Sunday, I watched all 10 episodes of Season 2 of Downton Abbey. It's so exciting to be able to watch, uninterrupted, an entire season of a favorite TV show, and that's what I was able to do. I feel so 'caugh up'. Now if amazon prime has Dexter, First Blood and The Walking Dead, I will literally explode with complete glee, but I won't get my hopes up yet because again, amazon prime is for "select" shows.

Now that I have a year completed at grad school for my Communications Degree, I'm going to start looking for employment in this field. Ideally I want a full-time job, but I'll take a volunteer position or an unpaid internship to get my foot in the door. The economy is in really bad shape here in Michigan, but it's better here than in other places. So I hope I can find something.

  1. I see that you know how to please yourself! I like that. Good to read that you find the time to relax between studing/writing. I hope (and believe) that you'll find a great job. You're so enthousiastic in everything you do. Tomorrow I go to the theatre to relax...I go to see the Scandinavian film Jagten (Thomas Vinterberg). In the US it's called "the hunt". A unsettling psychological drama so I don't think relaxing will be the case. Mads Mikkelsen won for his role the price of best actor in Cannes this year and Vinterberg's Festen is in my top 20, so my expectations are high.
