My faves so far are St.reet Fight about Newark mayor Co.ry Booker's first mayoral run mostly because I was so OUTRAGED by the blatant illegality and lies from the then incumbent. I didn't like the narration in it at all. I liked Gir.l Hoo.d because it was about two violent juvenile offenders and their efforts to turn their lives around. It was a really compelling story. I checked out "S.icko" though I'm not the biggest M.oore fan. It's one of those films everyone asks if you've seen so I'd like to be able to say yes. I also got C.razy Love which I'm sure Rashan would approve of since it's about the crazy psychological issues of this couple. No, that's not saying anything about our relationship... hahahahaha but more about his obsession with psychos.
I'm also on a mission to get all my reading done this weekend while we're off. I'm really excited about my books. They're engaging. The documentary students all went out last night for dinner/drinks. It was cool getting to pic the brains of the 2nd years and hear about the progress on their thesis films. I also got to put some faces and names together and hear about the cohesion in their class and get to know some of my classmates better as well so that was cool. I will also be reading about 3 newspapers each day. Unfortunately the internet is not cooperating anymore at my house. But it forces me to go to campus to get my videos. I also don't have a tv because I thought I could live without one... except it's kind of lonely! Who knew. Anyway still working on figuring out my schedule and trying to get a job. I'm about to stalk this woman who is the gatekeeper for the job I want. I hope she is prepared.
