A Couple of Sweet Things

I had a really normal day, not too exciting. But I found out two awesome things today that I must share. So I've had Netflix for a little while, a few months. And they have movies that you can watch online for free (or well, as part of your monthly payment) and it didn't used to work on my computer because they were still dealing with making it work on MAC's because the whole world is backwards when it comes to MACs. Anyways, I went to the Netflix website today, for no apparent reason really, and I found out that they got it to work! So I'm stoked for now having an amazing number of movies at my fingertips! With the free movies I don't even know why people would spend the money to get more than 1 DVD at a time. I pay like $10, get unlimited monthly DVDs one at a time, and unlimited movies online. Seriously awesome.

Thing #2, I found a cool website where you can make your own nutrition bars and pick your own ingredients and even give the bar its own name. They're a little expensive (they are custom made after all) but someday when I have money to throw around on nutrition bars, I'm totally going to make my own. It's a great idea though, and they have customized shakes too. And most of the stuff is organic, and vegan and healthy for you. I say this as I'm sitting here munching on a Jolly Rancher. Go me.

Completely unrelated to that, I'm sitting here in my basement room, lounging on the couch and ignoring the outside world. I gave myself today. Because I have to really start bearing down for finals and everything. I have rehearsal tomorrow which I am just soooo looking forward to. I registered for my spring classes. They're going to be pretty amazing I think. I'm taking German of course, either 1 or 2 drawing classes, I haven't decided if I want to stick with both or if I want to bother. And I'm registered for an 18th Century British Gothic Literature class (right?) which is the second best thing I could find after the seminar on the Enlightenment filled up immediately (bastards). I'm still going to try and go in on the first day of that class and try to get into it. I want it damn it. Or maybe I'll steal it from someone who gets cancelled in January. It's going to be my last undergraduate semester ever. And I will take the classes I want.
