guess i need a break

very nasty period. and i'm all grumpy and moody, and thinking about stuff i shouldn't be thinking about...at least my exams are over, and i am grateful because i was able to find out really cool interesting stuff in order to develop my final research papers. I missed this kind of research actually, and it felt good to do it differently from the advertising/planning perspective i got used to. Very good opportunity to refresh a bit the way i look at things. I wrote about Prohibition, which was really great, cause this was my curiosity after watching "The Roaring Twenties" (and "Some like it hot", but that's another story) was deeply satisfied. And i wrote about the Constitution of Namibia, which really amazed me. And maybe i'm gonna post the papers here some day, so that i can go back to them every once in a while :).
I dedicated most of my time between exams (apart from strategy and paints and all that) to movies and some time ago i decided to develop a blog especially for this. Which i did. Just another movie blog keeps track of the movies i watch, so that i don't cinema-overcrowd this one. And i've also decided to add some considerations regarding certain things i see or hear in the movies i watch which can apply in planning. Hope it'll last.
I also enjoy photographing frames from some movies i watch (especially film noir or black/white anyway). I still didn't have time to program the photography course i received as a gift from Space, but i hope to do this pretty soon.
I was thinking, and thinking quite seriously: i would like to have a small-special kind of job for a while. You know, like project movies or work in a small old bookshop or write columns for something small and funny or something of the kind. Doesn't make any sense, does it? It's just that i'd like to have a different contact with people for a while. To deal with "people", not "consumers" or "targets" or "creatives". I guess i really need a break.
I would have liked to get away a little, and go to Sighisoara and attend The Blues Festival there at the end of this week. Of course, i don't think i will in the end, cause i still have plenty of shits to work out.
And then, there's a little matter of blog-frustration: i don't know why i'm quite pissed i write it in English.
But B-ucharEst International Film Festival 2006 is near (March 28th-April 2nd). Not near enough though. Until then, the so-called Festival du Film Francophone will do. Hopefully.
And i love Gratian, so quickly turned into a brand :)) by the folks there. way to go, guys!

Yeah, i actually feel the same in needing contact with "people", not "targets" or "consumers"...
We need that change, girl. Maybe Gratian can help :)
