Movie Number 9

Number 9 out of 365 never seen before movies.... yes I realize I'm really far behind now. There's probably no catching up but it's not really about making the goal as much as it's about attempting the challenge.

Number 9 happened to be the Vow. Watched February 13, 2012.

4 out of 5 stars. 
I went to see this with two of my good friends here at Western. A little pre-Valentines Day girls night out. This movie was much anticipated and I was not disappointed by what it turned out to be. I loved that this was based of a true story and I would love to read the book about it as well. The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5, instead of 5 out of 5 is the fact that I found it somewhat painful to watch in the middle. It was just so hard to see him fighting to hold on and her losing everything from 4 years or so. I can't even imagine.

My Night In

After class tonight I was finally able to relax for some free time. So of course, I poured myself a glass of wine that I had left over from Tuesday night, popped in the Notebook and opened up some Dove chocolates. Truly a girls night in kind of moment.

Watching the Notebook just takes me back. Back to a much simpler time in my life when I spent two or three full days watching this movie with my cousin back to back. That’s all we did, watch the Notebook over and over again. I don’t know what we were thinking. We watched and ate food. Life seemed so much more care free at that point. I miss being able to waste my summer days laying in my basement in a pile of blankets next to my best friend just repeating lines from this movie and laughing and crying and drinking in all that is Ryan Gosling.

If you're a bird I'm a bird.

When we would actually go outside, we’d walk up the huge hill by my house and when we got tired we’d tell each other that Ryan was waiting for us at the top. We had to keep going because we didn’t want to leave him up there in the heat for forever. Maybe that’s crazy, but those were some of the best days of my life so far.

Plus look at that face... who wouldn't want that wanting for them at the top of a hill.

Yes Ryan I do, would you like to start with the Dirty Dancing lift, or the romantic Noah and Allie street dancing.... either one would be fine with me.

So It's February 14th Again...

but really....

and let's not forget....

aren't you glad I didn't send semi-threatening cards to you when I was a child Mom and Dad?

Ben (from Ben Does Life) is so inspiring! One of the best answers to a tough motivational question I've seen.

Somedays I really question why I'm not going into something in the music industry. I dream about it all the time... getting paid to listen to music all day long, give my opinion on the up and comers, introducing others to the hidden gems that are out there.

I love the idea of being an art therapist but I also love the idea of working with music for the rest of my days. Music is my life, more than anything. Music is what gets me through every day and it's connected to every single part of my life.

Yo, Remember When This Used to Be a Work Out Blog

hahahh oh the good old days when i worked out all the time. Yeah, so sorry, I literally have not been to the gym or worked out in a month. Until today that is! I went for a "run" that lasted five minutes and then walked for the rest of the half an hour. At least it was something right? Next time i'll shoot for 10 minutes.... or 7?

I have been so focused on school and so busy with all of my classes that I didn't even feel like I had time on the weekends to workout. Last week i dropped my photography class, which took a lot of the pressure off. I've never dropped a class in the past 3 and a half years of college but with all the work that I have in every single one of my classes this year I felt like it was more important to focus on my psychology classes than this one photography class. I'm hoping I can maybe get a job now as well, but we'll see how much work I have now.

Hopefully I can continue to get gym time in because working out is a major stress relief for me; which is another reason why it was best for me to drop photography. I was way too stressed about everything and had no way of calming myself.

Movie Number 8

Submarine, watched January 31st, 4 out of 5 stars.

This movie was interesting to say the least. I'd seen a lot of posts from it on tumblr and added it to the "to watch" list immediately. I got pretty distracted while talking to a friend so i took a little break somewhere in the middle but I watched it on DVD so I didn't miss anything. This movie was kind of heartbreaking and awkward and yet incredibly funny.
