Priceless

So on Thursday, I headed over to the Landmark Theatre on Broxton to watch Priceless, which is a delightful French comedy [yes, I used the word delightful].

There were only about 5 other people in the theatre, which is awesome [I like watching movies when it's not crowded]. I wasn't sure what to expect with the movie, but I really liked it. Audrey Tautou was beautiful in the film [she looked so different from her Amelie character], and even though her character was somewhat of a jerk, she pulled it off so well, that you couldn't help but like her in the end.

The premise of the movie is that Audrey's character, Irene, is a gold digger with very, very expensive tastes. Gad Elmaleh plays Jean, a hotel barman who falls for Irene. Irene initially mistakes him for a rich man, but when she finds out that he's not, French comedic hilarity ensues [kind of].

Throughout the movie, I couldn't help but relating it to my life...no, I'm not a gold digger/planning on becoming one, but rather the whole idea of setting a good impression and the concept of owning "nice things." I feel that since I'll soon be entering the work force, I need to start looking like I belong there, which means I need to look more put-together....and that most likely means spending money. : /

Happy Mother's Day!




This is my mom....[to somewhat protect her identity, I've "black-barred" her face so as to make it harder for you reader[s] to find out what she really looks like....], and she is amazing.

She gives so much, and doesn't ask for much in return. Her selflessness is incredible...I only hope that I can be a good daughter to her.

A few lines can't suffice to say what she means to me...but I love you, Mom.

* My apologies to those I alienate with this post...I mean to celebrate all the great women in my life who have shaped me into the person I am today...I am not necessarily targeting mothers only.

You Can Do It If You Put Yo' Back Into It

So I've decided I want to get in shape, which is pretty miraculous since this is coming from a girl who does not work out...and has never really worked out. I've gone running [once or twice....which I actually enjoy], but I'm not one of those people who has to constantly go to the gym. In fact, I've never worked out at the school gym, which I know is a shame because I'm paying good money for a really nice fitness center. I guess I've always given the excuse of never having time, but I think I'd also feel slightly intimdiated by all those people that do constantly go to the gym. So why the sudden change? I've been meaning to for a really long time, so no time like the present right?

My goal is to get in shape and actually get my body actively moving on a continual basis...I want to feel better and sleep better and have more energy...so hopefully I'll stick with this attitude.
