The clock is changing on 25th March here in Portugal
(I googled it hahahaha)
The Movie with Sandra is "Extremely Loud Incredibly Close"? Or something like that? I really want to watch it.
I remember 28 days too!! It's with Viggo Mortensen, isn't it?
I'm going to the movies this week but I have no idea what I'll watch. Hopefully a good one. My friends and I have a reputation for always choosing the most awful movies
I hate working on public holidays. It just seems unfair
And all the stores are closed, same with restaurants and cafés so it gets hard to have lunch :S
I looked for ours and it's next weekend, so that would be 25th March too! Europe clocks go forward and in Australia ours go back because we're going into winter.
Yeah, that's the movie I meant. It's funny because on the tram every day we go past a cinema and it has the "ticker" with all the movie names scrolling past out the front, and all the names I see on now are all the movies that were up for Oscars like Hugo and The Descendants. *sigh* nice to know how behind we are with our movies. There are actually a few I want to go see. I want to see Hugo and there's an Aussie movie out called "Any Questions for Ben?" it was set in Melbourne so I wanna see it just to see the places in Melbourne where they filmed (plus I know they filmed at the tennis centre so that's a plus for me).
I don't think I have seen 28 days. I am embarrassed to say but I love Miss Congeniality (just the first one). When I was younger, I used to watch Speed a lot too...just thinking of Sandra Bullock movies. I have seen The Notebook once and well - those movies are not the type of movies I like. I prefer more comedy/action movies. Romance movies are really not my thing (I think i'm too cynical hehe).
I had the choice of working on the public holiday or not, but I always do at least 5 hours. In my job, we get paid normal rates even if we don't work - so we still get 8 hours pay. Then if we work on that day, we get time and a half for evey hour we work. So for 5 hours last Monday I earnt double and a half pay! I can't wait to do my tax return this year because I know I've paid way too much tax so I should get a nice tax return to use for my holiday.
Lauriane - that sounds like a big decision, so I'm sure you gave it lots of thought. It's hard to know what to do at that age. I went to Uni and finished my degree because I thought I had to, and I have never used my degree because after uni I went and got a diploma to work in travel and I have been doing that ever since. I just wish I had done the diploma first and not gone to Uni because I now have "student loans" that I still need to pay back - I think it's different to the US, but I still eventually will have to pay them back. I'm just glad I didn't get loans for my whole degree, but only a small part of it - the rest I paid for myself. I mean I didn't mind Uni, but it's not really given me anything that I use, although the studies were interesting enough they haven't helped me get a job. I really would have loved to do something in cultural anthropology but there are no jobs in that field.
So if you think that you're not going to use your degree, then it's probably a good idea to pursue something else that you think you will use.
