Yay that he won, but that was expected. What wasn't expected was the fact that he won after FIVE SETS. OMGGG WTF. So distressing. I need to watch the match. I was hoping he'd advance to the quarters without losing a single set and trump Nadal in that department (he won Querry after four sets) but nooooo. I'm so scared he's not going to win. WHY DO I EVEN CARE. Ugh.
In other news, my presentation is over! I stumbled over a lot of words and phrases when reading from the stuff I prepared because I still don't seem to realise that speech and writing are two different things. I wrote my script the way I'd write an essay so I was up there reading out these long sentences that are hard to deliver verbally, but sound SO good on paper. I hate presentations.
We watched The Battle of Algiers before that. I think the reason why I thought it was very pro-Algeria was because I am sympathetic to independence movements. It was a good film, though a tad boring and the subtitles couldn't be seen half the time (they were white and the film was black-and-white so sometimes it was white on white). A lot of the issues that were dealt with in the film are still very relevant today. The scene in which the Algerian rebels blew up a couple of night clubs instantly reminded me of what happened in Israel (Tel-Aviv, I think) a few years ago. The film was really effective in sucking you into the thick of things, so that I couldn't help but wonder what it'd be like if I was ever caught in a situation, in the middle of a terrorist bombing. I don't know, it was kind of sad, people killing each other. It won't ever stop, would it?
Oh well. I'm going to watch tennis now. I hope I don't get too frustrated over Roger's performance! I hope it wasn't a matter of him playing badly, but his opponent playing well.
