My failed adaption

I'm quiet in class and I have trouble focusing on serendip.  I can't follow our discussions and there's something that blocks up my ideas and makes it incredibly difficult for me to form ideas.  It doesn't mean that I don't have them.  I'm just haven't adapted well to the environment that is our classroom.  I would make a very poor orchid type.

So I guess I'm just going to ramble my random ideas for a little bit.

For starters, I really didn't like the movie Adaptation.  Not because of the way it was made or the circular movement of it.  No, I didn't like it because they represented a very real woman, Susan Orlean, as a drug addicted, violent, ragged character.  I was shocked.  I couldn't wrap my head around the fact that she had seen this movie and didn't sue everyone involved.  That's what really bothered me about the movie.  If it was trying to say that it's impossible to represent someone else's story accurately then I guess they succeded because I don't think they represented her at all.

Okay, so that's my two-cents about the movie.  I didn't like it, I felt like I was watching someone's reputation get destroyed by vicious middle-school girls.
