So, today I watched both the Minions movie and Pixar's Inside Out. It was really fun :D

I have no interest in the Minion's movie, but I loved Inside Out.

Yeah, I also prefered Inside Out over the Minions' movie. It had smarter jokes and very interesting and subtle moments (and others not-so-subtle moments too :P).

It's a science fiction story about job registration. To be a little more specific:
The back of my book wrote:The G.O.R.S. is now open...
The Gemini Occupation Registration Station is only open for a few hours a day, and Grant Hospice is going to need every minute. With his mother pressuring his every move, and forces ranging from friendly to murderous, will he manage to turn in his form before his untimely Culling?


I'd comment about the movies, but I have yet to see either one.

I'm still not sure I get it... What's the Culling? Is that the science-fiction part?

Pretty much, yeah. It's just a nicer way of saying that he could die.

So far, on my visit to the US, I've been looking at the following Universities:
-University of Washington
-Northeastern University
-University of Michigan
-University of Illinois.

Also, I've pretty much settled on History as a future major, and I'm quite satisfied with all universities, especially Illinois.

Of course, I've heading to Wisconsin next, which is said to be rather big on history. Should be interesting.

Neat. Some of those (University of Michigan in particular) aren't that far from me. Maybe I can finally meet someone from this group face-to-face!
Also, some words on your choice of major: History is a wise choice of study, but a difficult one. The farther back you go, the less clear things become, as though you are traversing a long hallway with only the entrance of the present to give light.

But then, I'm going to be an English major, so I have no real idea what I'm talking about.

A small warning, Genndy: You will never ever read a book again without abalysing it as you go along.

To be fair, it's English with a Creative Writing slant. Hopefully, I'll be able to read without analyzing in four years' time.

As of last visit, I am very satisfied with the University of Wisconsin.

That's one incredibly strong history department-and their largest college is the Liberal Arts and Science one, too!

London! I've been there!

It can be a pretty cool place. There are museums and theatre and lots and lots of people.

Can you spell "Total data wipe" without looking it up?

Yeah, I knew you could. I'm still here, but no more music, no more pictures, no more games. Everything is wiped clean. >_< Well, for the most part, I can still download my Steam games again - the ones that work on Linux, at any rate. But still... Away went stacks of data.
