UNM Graduate Students


UNM Graduate Students

I would this group to be a way for graduate students socializes with one another. It seems as though it is easy to get isolated in a department and a building. It would be wonderful be able to socialize with other intelligent, driven individuals.

Fast answer?! Gah!! I'll have to get back on that one. I'm still in recovery from graduation.

Interesting list you've got there.

I agree with you about Sociology, Nova. I did it as an online class, but it was one of my favorites.

Movies in no particular order:
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind (Basically anything Charlie Kaufman or Michel Gondry)
The Big Lebowski (Basically anything Coen Bros)
Anything by M. Night Shyamalan (I know, I know. But I "get" his stuff.)
American Beauty
Dances with Wolves
Rob Roy
Like Nova, I'm leaving out the major Classics (like Casablanca, or the Maltese Falcon, or anything by Hitchcock.)

OK I'll join in here. Favorite movies: Little Miss Sunshine, The Princess Bride, American Beauty, Ordinary People, Crazy People, Bull Durham, Pulp Fiction, Crash, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Whale Rider, Bend it Like Beckham, Adaptation

Strange collection, I'll admit it.

Oh, yeah. Crash for sure -- which makes me think of Sideways which I got at the same time. Adaptation was amazing. Breakfast at Tiffany's. I believe falls in the Classics category, as does Princess Bride.
All good ones here, JeSais.

Ok, Princess Bride is up there, but a classic??? Would Hitchcock agree? Perhaps.

I also really like Snatch, and several of the Shyamalens - Being in Psych, and having more enjoyment of magical thinking than (maybe) I should, means I really dug Sixth Sense. Being in Sociology (with sprinkling of anthro, etc.,) meant I really liked the Village - they made their own Devil - we just can't be happy for long can we?

It reminds me of Agent Smith in Matrix - they tried to give us a perfect world but we would not sleep thru it :) He was an interesting fellow too - the most advanced 'agent' who could not stand the *smell* of humans - olfaction and emotion - very ev psych...

I still haven't seen Crash or Whale Rider yet - I get moody with movies, even when I KNOW I will like them.

Just filled out 10 pages of paper work for the GA/RA position - sheesh! Housing next. Ugh. WIll need a happy movie (or one of the Terminators) after all that.

I also have to get MMR vaccinations because i don't have my paper work from high school - my Mom threw it away years ago - I did not expect to need such things at age 50...

I think there's a thing you can get for that MMR dealio that will save you the hassles. They asked me for all that stuff when I transferred over to UNM. Made it sound like I wouldn't be admitted to classes without it. I've yet to, though

Hi Spoon!
Comment by Dick Chingadero on March 22, 2010 at 7:52pm
What variety of grad student are you, Spoon?
first year Creative Fiction MFA here.
Comment by Dick Chingadero on March 22, 2010 at 9:05pm
right now I'm mostly writing excuses for why I'm so behind on everything. (I'm teaching two sections of English 102 -- 44 students and a hell of a lot of grading. When I do write, I write fiction. sort of John Updike-ish post-9/11 stuff.

Biomedical sciences! Nice! I wish I had the math skills for something like that.

Hah! Maybe you should have been a creative writer instead.
