A few nights ago I went searching online for a western called Guns for San Sebastian after hearing some of the music on a CD I bought. I thought it was a spaghetti western but turns out it was actually filmed in Mexico. Unfortunately I could only find the movie on VHS on Amazon. It doesn't look like it's ever made it to DVD. But I did find a Spanish dub on Youtube and watched it anyway. I liked it, but had to agree with the critics on some aspects. If it ever gets to DVD in English, I'd still buy it.

It's just a little over a week until the spring symposium at school. I practiced my presentation "for real" today in front of my parents since they're the only audience I have at the moment. They may have to suffer through a few more practice runs. ;) According to my teacher, I write well, but I know my speaking abilities can be a bit rough because, like anyone else, I get nervous and speak too quickly when I present.

Lately I've been watching The Big Valley because I'm a dork like that and I like to watch hunky cowboys on TV. I've also been watching Bonanza and Gunsmoke, and on the weekend I'm trying to catch The Virginian on a different channel. TV shows from the 1960s can be dorky and cheesy and yet I still like them somehow. Sometimes the stories are actually interesting.

Been plowing through People of the Thunder, but I haven't touched The Mammoth Book of Westerns because the size of the book is a little too inconvenient to put in my backpack to read on the way to school, and I haven't been able to take the time to read at home lately. And speaking of books, I bought some books from the book sale shelf at my school library, which made me happy because there was this huge book about the American West that was worth the whole dollar I spent on it because it's so detailed and What a find.

I haven't heard anything yet about the job I applied to. Makes me think I wasn't selected and they aren't able to tell me yet.
