What to do when you're not at school...
...well, things to do when there's no midterm or paper due. Here's a scoop on movies, TV shows, music, and food that I enjoy watching, listening, and consuming.
I actually don't watch that many movies, but when I do, I usually opt for movies with cool plotlines or supposedly deep emotional messages. Gattaca, which deals head on with the concept of eugenics brought on by genetic selection, and Amelie, a whimsical somewhat sappy French movie, are two of my favorites. Occasionally, I do like watching superficial feel-good movies, like A Christmas Story (don't laugh) which appeals to me for no particular good reason. The Departed, with its intricate storyline, was also amazing. As for TV shows, I have a slight fascination with old-school cartoons. I watch Boomerang a lot (Channel 17), realizing that many of the themes in shows like Animaniacs and Looney Tunes go right over the heads of young viewers. I also watch stand-up on Comedy Central, which provides a good dose of laughter.
I listen to quite a bit of Euro music as well as light Indie. Like movies, I like music that has strong emotional messages, though mainstream cookie-cutter music has its place when I need something to keep we awake during studying or a jog. Food? I like all sorts, though healthy menu items are what I usually go for (salads, sandwiches, fish, low fat chicken etc) as a nutrisci major. But I do indulge: Thai food, pastas, and Hong Kong style dishes are all favorites. As they say, full stomach, happy heart.
