It Happened This Morning

"Holy jumpin' cactus", that movie was great. Haha, for the most part. It did get a little slow towards the end as I was warned, but it had some memorable parts in it for sure. My favorites included the motel type scene (you know what... the first and the second one), the hitchhiking part (hahaha the driver that picked them up was hilarious! I laughed way too loud for this early in the morning) and the river crossing. You'll know once you've seen it! So get on it yeah? I need to go to sleep, so save your questions for later. Oh, you don't have any? Well, alright suit yourself. Speaking of sleep, I definitely gotta get me a pair of those pajamas Clark wore. Goodni- uh, morning. Have a great day.

Let's Review

'Ello there. It is March 21, well the 22nd now, at approximately 1:41 in the morning. It was an important evening for some people, and while most of them I will never meet, I have indeed noticed and understood all the same. It's just one of those things you can tell, but is only harder to explain. This aside, I thought I'd share a couple movies I have seen lately and give my take on them. Basically, I fortunately took a fantastic tip and got Netflix. Pretty much one of the greatest things ever to happen to my late-nightlife. Hey, hey, calm down I said 'ONE', not THE. Shall we begin? Okay.

1. Dan in Real Life. I went in with mediocre expectation of a few laughs, basic plot and the possibility of an anticlimactic ending (helps with the arrival of a good one and lack of more disappointment if it occurs). Actually, I was pleasantly surprised. I had heard it was okay, and that it was really boring and not funny at all. When watching however, I realized afterward that I had been laughing throughout the entire film. Sarcastic comments and a plot twist or two was just fine by me. I suppose it depends on your sense of humor, that of the film being a bit dry. I give it 4 stars out of 5. Haha... I've always wanted to do that.

2. Cashback. I was told it was an artistic movie and that it was a kind of lame plot. Basic romantic line up with ups and downs and a really slow progression of development. I found this movie to be more than that. I, myself, enjoy romantic comedies and while this movie was not as comedic as most, it made up for it in an intriguing artistic view of.. well everything. Some points of the movie were a bit bizarre and felt a little untouched on, but that really is how it was supposed to be. Some odd things are the best really. I liked it, and it was above average. This particular one I give a 3.5 out of 5. That's right, I'm throwing in the decimals!

Company makes movies too, and seeing as how I have been watching a lot of movies alone as of late, it may play crucial roles to the experience. I'm so busy these days I find time for this late when I should be sleeping. And since I'm really not tired right now and there are just too many things on my mind I think I'll take another great tip and watch It Happened One Night starring Clark Gable. Good man. Another movie you should consider watching is Dr. Strangelove. It's really just a great one, you'll thank me later. Stay tuned for more after a word from our sponsor, the PKK!

DST Update

First of all, all I am just inexplicably happy I did not have am shift at work this morning. That would have meant I had to open my sleepy eyes against all their will at 4 o'clock in the morning. But I did not! Nay, I was able to rest from a long night.
Anyway, as far as things that have now changed due to London, I will record. I will no longer be moving out as early as I planned. Since I will be departing for London at the beginning of September for school, I figure it's best to keep myself here in Redlands, establish a good, solid base for getting that residual income, and save up as much as I can. I will most likely keep my job until the end of summer, but it will be the last. It will net me an extra 5K, on top of the 4K/mo, so I should have a little elbow room in London financially speaking. I have been studying up on the country quite a bit as far as history and the food is concerned. So far anyway. I will most likely stay with a host, so that will be a good experience as well. Building on everything while I'm gone, I will be able to go to school at either CSUSB or SFSU when I come back.

As for that, I really don't know. Or maybe it's that I do, but I don't want to necessarily say it yet. Either way, I will be able to get my own apartment in either area and get a bike finally. I think it is best to wait until then. I decided on a Yamaha R6, but upgrading the exhaust system to look just like the R1's. So it will pretty much look as cool as the latter, but still perform like the former. I'm game. Also, my Uncle Vinny offered me a deal I couldn't refuse... I know what you're thinking. And you're probably right. Haha my uncle is looking into selling some of his cars and I am most likely going to eventually purchase his 1971 Ford Mustang Fastback. I sell my car, and make the rest in small payments and I'll be set!
Things are lookin up for 'ol Zach. I'm really looking forward to going to Las Vegas at the end of April for a private business conference too, so that should be fun. Alright gang, that's it for now. Have a great 24-hour period of time starting now!

London... LONDON!!

The above title is what I sometimes yell to people (and even shake them given the nature of our relationship) as I continue to come to the realization that I'm going to London next semester for school! I just mailed in most of the documentation needed to get into the program, and all that is left are some fees and a couple other things soon to be covered. I'll be studying at the University of London, right in the city. I have wanted to take part in an opportunity like this for the longest time. Whether it be through education or my own way, to travel to another country for an extended amount of time and gain that experience for what it is... it's just great. I do realize it is the UK, and while it's not an incredibly different culture with a language barrier, entirely different customs etc., it is something else. Something else.
It's interesting realizing it's finally my turn. In all this time, I've seen so many people handed everything and taking opportunities like this for granted. I do realize that some earn it, and others do not take it for granted at all. But it just seems like an outstanding majority follow a poorly constructed way of thinking. I suppose this is for another time, but for now I am happy about this opportunity. I will be making $4,000/mo by summer, and continue making that even while I'm gone. When I come back, I'll be good to buy a street bike and live wherever to go to school. It's between two right now, but I have a feeling I know which one I'll end up at. Having my own nice apartment, a bike and the freedom to go places sounds like a plan to me.
