It Felt Like A Burnin' Ring Of Fire

How y'all doin? I just watched "Walk The Line" and the Southern accents are racing through my head as I try to analyze the movie. I really loved it, but I do think it could have been a little shorter. I grew tired of watching "Johnny" stumble around. I kept wanting to shout, "Straighten up, boy!!" Everyone loves a reformed celebrity and this story is no different from many others, but it was the acting and the music that made it such an excellent movie. The love story was well-portrayed, too. Go and see it if you haven't already. Thanks for taking me, Mom. I needed a night out!

Gosh, I was nervous today, but I survived the GRE and I'm happy with my results. (My knees were actually shaking when I left the testing center.) I scored higher than the required numbers for the schools I'm considering, so I'm very, very relieved. Now I have to get busy with all of the applications. It will be May or June before I know exactly where I'm going to school in the Fall.

Now it's time to crash. My brain's had all it can take for one day.

Congratulations on the exam! Bet you are glad it is over, and you can move onto bigger and better things. Like Joaquin Phoenix. Or Reese Witherspoon. Depending on your taste.

CONGRATULATIONS! That's awesome news! I'm so glad you did well and you have it all behind you now.

I'm going to see Walk the Line with a friend Thursday night, and I'm looking forward to it. Glad to hear you liked it too!
