Warring Authors

January 29th, 2005

I’m currently reading The Blue Girl by Charles deLint, in which his protagonist accuses JK Rowling of stealing the image of Harry Potter from his friend, author Neil Gaiman. Talk about poetic justice, now we’ve got battling fictional characters!

Snow Dreams

January 28th, 2005

Well, my exams are finally over, at least for this semester, which means I don’t have school until next Wednesday, the day, coincidentally, which marks the last twenty four hours of being younger than sixteen.
Unfortnatly, for these days off school I am trapped in my house because the snow just keeps coming down and eventually we’re just blocked on all sides by a giant wall of snow that will probably stay there until spring. I’m starting to get cabin fever real bad. I’ve got a lot to do that is not school related that I’ve been waiting for some time off to do, but I can’t seem to focus. My new rule is that the amount of time I spend watching TV per day must equal the amount of time I spend reading or writing. We’ll see how long it lasts.
On a completely unrelated note, I’ve recently been having dreams that are really realistic. So realistic, infact, that I believe in them as if they actually happened once I wake up. Last night I dreamt that mom at started working again, and when I woke up I asked her what her new project was. She wasn’t, of course, but for an hour or so I really believed it was so. A couple nights ago I dreamt that I got to school and my timetable had been ripped off the inside of my locker. I got to school and wondered how I was going to figure out what classes I had, only to find that my timetable was still on the inside of my locker. When I mentioned this to my friend Danielle, she commented that it was the last day of classes for this semester, and that my timetable would be obsolete by the end of the day. Weird.

Brain Theatre

January 21st, 2005

Last week a friend of mine lent me her Witch Hunter Robin DVD box set. It was okay, but I really didn’t find it as great as everyone says it is. It seems to have an interesting plot, and the animation is really realistic, but it moves way too slow, and it seems a bit pretentious. Also, although the plot was interesting, they didn’t seem to have a good flow of information, just a little trickle here and there and blasted you with it near the very end.
That’s one thing that I find annoying with TV and Manga: they never give you exactly what you need to know, and they never go at the right speed for the viewer. When you read real novels, you’re given all the facts necessary to understand the story, the rest is left to be filled in with your own imagination. With TV, you’re never sure if the information you’re given is important or not. With novels, you can also rewind and speed up to another part of the book at your leisure without having to worry about missing something important.

Math anxiety

January 20th, 2005

Tomorrow I am going to take my grade 11 advanced exam. I’m a bit nervous about it. This is because I need to decide soon whether I want Calculus and Physics next year or Biology and History. I’m afraid that I’m not smart enough to take Calculus, although there is not any reason to think that. My math mark has always been in the low nineties, even in the advanced class.
Lawrence Summers, the president of Harvard, recently wondered why there aren’t more women in top math and physics positions. He said that it could be because of the roles we are raised from, or genetics. I think there may be a third reason that has not been said. There are many intelligent girls in my Math class who don’t the inclination to take further math. I think the reason that this is because they think math is nerdy, and looking at the people in my math class, they would get that impression.
Anyway, it’s weird that I’m so into math when I’m such a daydreamer. You’d think that with all the writing and reading I do my favourite subject would be English, but it’s not. English is too subjective, it’s hard to be taught. At least with Math you know when you’re right.

Of Winter and Snow

January 17th, 2005

Today all of Atlantic Canada has been shut down because of a giant blizzard right outside our window. Everything is closed. Even the big mall in Halifax. The list goes on and on and on. Ironically, we are one of the worst hit areas and yet the university where dad works is still open. Poor dad.
One thing that really bothers me about winter is that the only time it’s cold enough to need to wear slippers, you can’t, because the air is so dry and you build up a lot of static electricty wearing them. It really hurts. You get shocked every two seconds.
To any of my friends who are looking for something to do on this school cancellation day, I’ve put up the two first chapters of Lost in Six Billion Dreams to read.

Beware of Perfectionists With Time Machines

January 12th, 2005

Today was one of the odd days when I didn’t have anything afterschool in terms of Band or commitees. I watched The Butterfly Effect on the movie network. At the time I didn’t bother seeing it in theatres because it got bad reviews. This was mostly because Ashton Kutcher can’t act serious, or can’t act at all for that matter. Surprisingly, I really liked the movie, despite some of the strange plot turns and Kutcher’s bad acting. The whole premise wasn’t really explained, but then again, when is Sci-Fi fully explained? The movie itself kept me on the edge my seat. It was addictive. However, if you really want to hear a good story on Chaos Theory, something that interests me a lot, check out the Star Trek TNG episode Parallels where Worf keeps changing from one reality to another based on choices made. Same premise, less violence but more nerdy.
