|Took a career test c/o MSN and I found out the perfect careers for me are the following:
*special education teacher
*alcohol and drug addiction counselor
*director of religious education
Wow. An alcohol and drug addiction counselor? Hmm. Never crossed my mind.
Oh, and it turns out I'm an INFJ (Intravert, Intuitive, Feeler, Judger) person. I must say I always thought of myself as an extrovert.
People of this type tend to be creative, original and independent; thoughtful, warm and sensitive; global thinkers with great passion for their unique vision; cautious, deliberate and planful; organized, productive and decisive; reserved and polite.
The most important things to INFJs are their ideas, and being faithful to their vision.
Sounds a lot like me.
Was able to watch The Magdalene Sisters by Peter Mullan earlier today at SM Megamall.
It's a very confusing film. Well, confusing for me. I'd like to set aside the fact that the film is set in a Catholic nuns convent. People should learn from this movie. Whether people we have condemned or judged truly deserve to be judged like that.
Technically, it's a wonderful film. Except for the ending. I think Peter Mullan built up the story so much in the beginning that he had a hard time thinking of something that people will always remember the ending. Well, I guess that happened but it doesn't work for me.
I just have major issues with the story. I guess I can't just accept that that's what happened. It's only one side of the story. As a Catholic, it's a very disturbing film about abuse and discrimination. But as a movie critic, it's an exceptional and eye-opening film.
Went to Powerbooks awhile ago and a bought a copy of Steve Martin's Shopgirl. Critics have been raving about it and, well, since it's only P265, I decided to see if the book's really all that. Will let all of you know in about two weeks when I finish Rudy Giuliani's book and probably ROTK.
