"So you're, like, still alive, right?"

It's stunning to think that I haven't written here since September. Then again, when I look back at the last few months, it's no wonder.

My life has been turned upside-down, inside-out, and altogether topsy-turvy. In absolutely all the best ways. ♥

And in the midst of all of this wonderful insanity, I just haven't had time to sit down and spell out everything I've been up to, and everything that I've experienced. I haven't even had the time to comment on friends' entries, or interact with everyone over Facebook or AIM. It's not that I don't care about my friends, or have become disinterested with their lives; I'm just too busy to keep in direct touch. Then again, that's more or less how my high school life was, back in the day. So it's really not that much of a surprise, right?

Looking at my life the way that it is, and the way that it's heading, I'll probably never get enough time to post all of my experiences here. But I see that as a good thing; better to be too busy to write things down than not doing anything worth writing about, I suppose.

Even during my "holidays", I'll be spending most of my time applying to graduate schools for my PhD. Graduation is this summer, and I certainly haven't forgotten it. Who knows what the future will bring? All I can do is prepare myself for anything, and then see what happens.

But at the same time, I'm going to try to balance my work with relaxation. You have to have a little downtime, or you're bound to burn out. I've been trying to watch at least one film a day; past examples include both Kill Bill volumes, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and Stardust. There are a lot of films that have been out for ages in the US, but are just beginning to be shown in the UK. Of these films, I think the two I'm most interested in seeing are The Golden Compass and Beowulf.

Definitely The Golden Compass, since I loved the book. But what about Beowulf? For those of you who have seen it: Was it any good, and would you recommend it?
