Intelligence and Imagination

How often do I find someone that’s intelligent, works hard and is headstrong about earning an education as I am right now? Not that often. But today, all of that changed. I have finally met someone that is highly intelligent, job experienced, and well educated, and doesn’t take any bullshit from the immature and disrespectful folk that are there.

I don’t know her that well. We only talked briefly in English class during a discussion (in which we both agreed on the terms of that debate). But after what had happened, I have much respect for her. Much respect.

Firefly/Serenity news: It seems that the movie is almost done filming. Yay. Some "secret" behind-the-scene production photos.

Just gotta love Inara's attire (and there's Nathan!)

In other news, just recently (as in a few days ago) I was notified that one of my favorite plays is going to become a film.

Proof by David Auburn happens to be a phenomenal story. Exceptionally written and with amazing characters and the story just enthralls you with every page. I first read this play for extra credit in theatre, and I was immediately drawn to the storyline and the characters and the points it was proving. Much like A Beautiful Mind and Pi, this deals with the exact same thing. I definitely recommend this for anyone, and it really doesn't matter if you love math or you extremely loathe it, or cannot even understand it. Proof explains a lot of human interaction, emotions, and everyday dealings with a brilliant mind of someone that can comprehend mathematical problems as if it's their first language.

It's a great read, so pick it up from the library and form your own opinion for it. In my opinion, though, it's an extraordinary book with amazing storytelling, great characters you can grow emotionally attatched to, and a thought-provoking issue that is just mind-boggling.

It is now late, and I am tired, so I must get gone to sleep now. Or I'm going to fall asleep on the keyboard.
