Discussion #1: FRINGE.

Hallo readers. :) I'm posting earlier than normal today! But that's because I don't have any outfit photos for you today. :( However, I think I still have some interesting topics to discuss!That's right. FRINGE.
The dynamic and fast-paced show, airing mid 2008, focuses on the investigation of different parts and aspects of fringe science. I watched the first episode of it yesterday after hearing chatter about it from Derek for the longest time. The show is intriguing - it makes you think. And it's just plain trippy, to be frank. At least, this is what I've gotten out of it so far. I've read mixed reviews about it, however. Stretching from something like, an intense paranormal adventure, to, poor in comparison to the X-Files (a similar show that preceded Fringe).

I'm not going to do an actual essay review about this show, but I just wanted to comment on it because I just watched it. Derek and I talked about it earlier today, along with other topics having to do with fringe science and the phenomenon surrounding it. It's very interesting to me; it's amazing to think that things that are viewed as sci-fi/fantasy could somehow be real - could be possible (as described in Fringe... "rare diseases, chimeras, mutants, psychic abilities, teleportation, etc). I think just the thought of the unknown is mind-boggling. But the thought of there being a chance of this unknown BEING known - or even better, it being real - that's just cool. I gotta say.

But anyway. :) I got up at 5am this morning to go work at this race from 6-11am, (as mentioned here in my "thankful" section), and I made $100 for about 6 hours of work! I'm quite proud of myself and I hope the people who hired me hire me again. The event was rather fun, too, so that made it all the better.

Oh, & by the way, my mom and I decided to go to Santa Barbara for our roadtrip! We are leaving the 22nd, I believe.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
