Apparently I’m a Grown-Up Now

I had meant to get another few movies up by now, but in the last few weeks I have apparently become something of a grown-up.

First, I decided that the bed I had been sleeping on was uncomfortable and too small, so I went and bought a new mattress.  A new, sturdier bed frame is still a planned, but this definitely non-student-bed is nice.

Secondly, I bought a car!  I felt rather bad after my mother’s car was wrecked (not her fault) while she was driving in to pick me up from work a few weeks ago, since if we weren’t sharing the car, she’d likely not have been driving at that busy time of day.  Last Friday I finally did something about it, and went and took a Mazda3 for a test drive.  It was nice.  And the financing deal was good, and, well, 5 days later I own a car.

(I’m actually both appalled and impressed and how fast they can move to sell you a car.  Though they weren’t open on the weekend, I certainly could have had it faster than I did.)

I think my subconscious started a rebellion against this kind of adult responsibility, however, since last Sunday I was overtaken with the urge to get myself a new yo-yo, and in the process I also ended up getting myself a Nerf gun.  (I resisted the urge to get some Star Wars action figures only because I didn’t want to deal with the hassle of the check-out lines at Wal-Mart.)

So, that’s what I’ve been up to the last few weeks.  More movie thoughts to come soon, as I have managed to squeeze in a few here and there.
