Oscar noms, and school [Thursday, Feb. 02, 2006, 5:28 pm]
On the other hand, when a film I really really like wins something, all of a sudden it means it's the greatest film ever, as the Oscar obviously indicates. Return of the King is one of the greatest films ever because it won so many Oscars. Of course, Titanic did too, but that doesn't mean anything.
In other news, I visited the University of Southern Maine today. It's huge compared to the little place I'm attending now. It has an indoor track and huge cafeteria & all that jazz. So I'll have to visit UMO too before I decide anything. I have a feeling my decision will be based more on financial aid than anything. Gee, I thought I was finished with all these college decisions 2 years ago, but it doesn't end.
It will be good for me to live on campus, I'm sure, even though it will be quite a change. I don't want the extra temptation to be two-faced, or become a recluse. Sometimes it seems like those are the only options, but I know it's possible to be an open, caring person without selling out or alienating other people. Boy, that's something I need to work on. It's not about me at all - I just get deceived into thinking it is sometimes.
