Time to Spare

So... what does this seminary student do when he doesn't have to go to class? What occupies those countless minutes spent thinking about what assignment is due when and how much time you'll have to put in tonight because you've procrastinated for weeks? This last week has been a wonderful reprieve. I forgot how great it is to come home from work and realize that I've nothing to do; no, nothing at all.

With all my free time I've been trying to be as productive as possible. First, I've taken in a hearty dose of computer gaming, a past-time long since abandoned for the higher calling of seminary. It took the whole of a day to regress to my undergrad days of spending an entire day playing a single game, only getting up for the bare essentials. Oh yes, this liberation is ecstasy.

Further, since moving into my new apartment I have continued the Netflix tradition that I started with my father. I get to watch one or two movies a week, this of course scheduled around my compulsive gaming. After all, we must have our priorities straight.

As for tonight? I just got back from a free screening of the new movie Juno. Oh yes, I said free. I found out that the theatre just across the street hosts free screenings all the time. (I think I have have found a new hobby.) The movie was excellent. I give it four stars. I'm not sure how many stars a movie can get in my impromptu rating schema, but rest assured, four stars means "good movie." The movie would be hard to classify, but my favorite movie reviewer aptly describes it as a coming-of-age/teen romantic comedy. The movie left me with several cosmically important questions. First, where are all the girls like Juno? I'm Paully Bleeker all over. So, where are all the Juno's? Second, am I attracted to Juno's character, the skill of the actress, or Ellen Page herself? You might remember her as Kitty Pride from X-Men 3, or for the more dedicated film buff, Hayley from Hard Candy. After this, and seeing Hard Candy last year... wow. I think the verdict is in. I'm in love with Ellen Page. Last, and arguably the most important question of all... is it a sin to be in love with a Canadian?
