I want to be a purist brat and insist on reading the trilogy before seeing the movie. A friend of a friend who loves both books and movies told me that she thought seeing the movie wouldn’t ruin the book for me, would actually make the books easier to read. She said this is the best movie adaptation of a book she has ever seen and this is a movie one must see on the big screen. I have heard Tolkein can be very dry and difficult. I still am such a purist brat, though. I am conflicted.
My English Language professor is Doug Patey. He is amazing. I knew i was gonna be an English major, have just been putting off declaring until i have someone to be my advisor. I want him to be my advisor. He is going on sabbatical next year. I have to have an advisor second semester next year (before i register for the classes i will take the fall of my junior year). He said i could have someone else act as my advisor for that semester and then he would be my advisor when he got back. I don’t want to ask someone to be my advisor knowing it’ll be just for one semester, though. It’s not like i’m gonna want anything from him except registration codes next year anyway. I promise i won’t bother the nice man on sabbatical. I am conflicted.
