Philip Glass Fridays

Seeing the end of the Truman show the other day reminded me of how awesome his music is. And of course, how great the movie is as well.


Week 4

Since moving back home, I feel like these girls on occasion. But tell me: who forgets that it’s Saturday?

Since Monday, I’ve handed in four assignments–no wait, five– completed two quizzes, learned how to work audio equipment, (which I will be using this upcoming week to practice my interviewing skills), and attending a football game at my ¬†high school that I never did when I was in high school. How did that happen? But I’m kind of excited to use a microphone, as it makes me feel like a real news reporter. I was thinking of using it for Nuit Blanche over the weekend. I’ve never been, believe it or not.

I’ve come to the slow realization that I’m not good with dummy sheets. I’m sure once I get the hang of it it will be a cinch, but at this point in time, I feel like I’m back in math class at public school. I place I thought I’d never return to, aaaaah!

In the time I’ve spent on this campus, I’ve heard some impressive piano music coming coming from that–where else–lovely grand piano in the hallway. Yesterday afternoon was no exception. Every time I walk by it, I wish I could bang out my frustration to some crazy music like Chopin’s Polonaise. But instead when it comes to piano, my hands are as uncoordinated as… *insert witty simile here, because I can’t think of one*

Oh thank goodness it’s Thursday; tonight I’m going to do nothing and just watch the premiere of Elementary.

ps: I’ve either lost or misplaced the usb cable to my camera, so picture uploads may be slow until further notice.

Allow myself to introduce… Myself.

[That’s a line from Austin Powers that I’ve always wanted to use.]

I’ve maintained a few blogs in the past, and starting the first post is always tricky. This time I think I’ll jump right in with the five W’s (or most of them):

I’m Madalyn; 22, and a recent graduate of Dalhousie University with English major, but as of this upcoming Wednesday I will be another year older. Yikes.

I’m studying at Centennial College, working my way to becoming a big time journalist within the next two years. This blog will hopefully display some of that, because I like to write. Maybe you’ll even see a few pictures.

My home is here in Toronto, though Halifax I consider a close second, after a wonderful four years of living there.

I enjoy dancing and watching old fashioned slapstick comedy, and the biggest life-consuming obsession I have is with the sci fi series Doctor Who.

There have been a few things on the go for me this weekend: the other day I took a trip down to Yonge and Dundas Square to attend the Small World Festival, where I saw live music and authentic dance. My job was to take lots of pictures for the photography class assignments, and so I did. They didn’t turn out too bad, but I’m not a professional just yet, ho hum.

Other things to do this weekend? Study for two quizzes, and brainstorming for assignments. Which, in fact, is what I should be doing now. Will be back soon, depending on how often I am able to frequent wordpress this week.
