Vicarious

adj. experienced in the imagination through the feelings or actions of another person |




This semester has me swamped with so many projects dealing with vastly different things: film, stars, eating disorders, and research papers. (Realised that I listed them down in the order of my preferred topics to start on) 
So Introduction to Film Art (GEK 2020) has been really interesting! We’ve covered Greed by Stroheim, Welles’ Citizen Kane, and the ever so famous Psycho by Hitchcock so far. I remember catching glimpses of Psychoduring my secondary school literature days, but the shower scene filled me with the very same feelings of suspense and fear which I thought would be mitigated by the fact that I’ve watched it before. My favourite so far will have to be Citizen Kane which held a certain special poignancy for me. & Greed was just plain depressing. 
I can’t believe it’s only the third week and I’m heavily overwhelmed with all the readings and what not. It’s insane, the amount of money I spend on printing notes and photocopying reference books! Nonetheless, school is always made bearable with the company of great friends and spontaneous moments, like taking the car out behind my parent’s backs (with a registered license, of course!) and driving myself to school for the very first time while they were away.  
There has a lot to be said about my sadness in August, but I guess that will have to wait for another time. (It’s 2 in the morning and I have a class at 10 T.T)
Goodnight xx
