Brace yourself for a little mini-rant.

I’m currently sitting at work, trying to figure out what I’m going to be writing for my Heart of Darkness essay. I’m just kind of fed up with this past week, especially after last night’s photography debacle. Overall, I have nothing against Wooster, but there are times where I am incredibly frustrated with where I am as a human being, but also my work and experiences with professors on campus.

Don’t get me wrong, I love being an English Major. However, I think there are certain people that either…

a. Take their job way too seriously, and end up forgetting why they teach this subject in the first place.

b. Don’t know, or realize, what they’re talking about when they try and teach said subject.

c. Don’t realize that the world doesn’t revolve around their particular area of study.

Simply put, incredibly frustrating. I’m finally realizing that if I want to go into film, I would have gone to a film school. I like working with computers, and the more technical aspect of film, but in working for classes like this Introduction to Photography as well as the Introduction to French Film course, my entire image of film has been torn to pieces and had all the fun taken out of it AT THE SAME TIME. We’re talking about beating a dead horse here. I don’t care much for ‘mise en scene’, but more along the lines of how something is shot within the movie itself. Or even, how intricate a plot might be, and the particular twists and turns that particular plot takes while being told, instead of how certain characters portray modern political aspects or some other bullshit like that. I just want to tell stories, not interpret other peoples work.

Ok, I’m done for now.

On a completely separate note, this is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while. http://twistori.com/#i_believe

Also, going to see I Love You Man with Sam, Scott, Matt and Bain tonight. Bracing myself for some serious bro-mance.
