Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review (has Spoilers)
Star Wars: The Force Awakens (but doesn't leave bed yet)
Here it is, I'm dusting off the cobwebs on my DA page to review the most anticipated film of 2015.  Please note that this review will have spoilers, so don't read if you want to avoid those.
I had tickets booked yesterday, the 27th, to see it at an AMC theater in HD 3D.  It was the earliest I could get decent seats after it came out (this theater practices assigned seating like concerts).  First I want to complain a bit about the rabble I shared the film with.  There were too many young kids.  This was an undeniable side effect of the "Clone Wars" and "Star Wars Rebels" series.  Although I don't mind sharing the theater with kids, the occasional exclamations and asking whether a character is okay shook my ability to be immersed in the movie.  Fortunately, this faded as the movie progressed.  Now, to address the movie....

How Sequels Took Away From ALIEN's Mystery
What is the Alien?
I love science-fiction.  
The fact that I love science-fiction is a defining aspect of my character.  The genre has influenced all my creative works whether what I write is of the same genre or not.  Novels such as George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four and movies such as Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey have played a large part in defining my views of fiction and film.  Orwell's novel presented a terrifying look into an alternate history where a totalitarian government had taken control of every aspect of life.  That was science-fiction as a platform for a message.  Stanley Kubrick's film is art in motion, using science-fiction for an abstract study of man's intelligence, evolution, and what lay in the future.   These proved that science-fiction could be more than the space operas of Star Wars and Star Trek which, while entertaining, didn't touch me on a psychologica

Well, it's been a good long while since I've posted a journal here.  Didn't feel much need to, but since I'm trying to be more sharing here again, I'll give it a try.  After a long dry period after my 2014 graduation, I couldn't find a job in my field.  In March of this year, I got steady part-time work at Lowe's Hardware.  It was enough to pay off my expenses with a little left over.  It got slightly better when I got a minor promotion there and I was developing a real rapport with the people there.  Then, I got the call.  A lab that develops medical devices was in the market for a new lab assistant and I seemed like a great fit considering my limited lab experience.  I got the call at the end of August and I didn't believe it at first.  I gave two weeks notice to my part-time employer and started my new job on the 14th of September.  I've been working well there ever since.  It's been an adjustment, but I'm developing a rapport there as well.  It pays much better than Lowe's, of course.  I've been surprised at how much I can bank after expenses are paid.  In a couple months time, I plan to move out and rent an apartment very near to work.

So that's the short of it.  Also, I had a great Christmas with my dad's wife's family (they celebrate it, my family didn't) over at the house and it was the first time ever that I've been able to get gifts for everyone who gave me one.

I also saw the "Star Wars" movie today.  It was an excellent movie, but was not without its faults.  I plan to have my review up on it soon.
