I'm ready. Come and get me, Universe!
Another Monday, another movies day on my blog.
I won’t lie to you, I’m kinda beat, so I can’t go into the Zelda compilation, and I was going to blog about my top 5 love stories on screen, but I might not do it justice today. I just want to sit back, relax, and stare at my beach photos and play with them on Photoshop.
I told you some people never want to let go of something good in their life. So my clinging to the whole beach experience might continue for a few days. And here’s why: I don’t have work documents, I have just graduated and supposed to find a job (without said documents), and I’ve no permanent address in a country that is not my own. So… things are definitely undecided.
And these are the days I reach for my safety blankets: Gilmore Girls, my favorite authors, and all kinds of movies. Those things make me feel safe, without fail. So this week I’m reading Stephen King (The Dead Zone); I have GG on repeat; I’m putting my luggage together, and trying not to freak out like I used to do a couple years ago. Because now that I am 24 it feels slightly ridiculous to have full-blown freak outs since there’s nothing solid to fall back on, like school or a roof over my head.
But don’t you worry about me. I don’t feel as if my life’s out of control or anything… it just looks like a blank slate right now. And sometimes those are a blessing. So all I need now are some good movies to stock up and take on my journey with me (apart from all 7 seasons of GG).
This is where you lovely people come in. I have made a list of my to-watch movies by years from 2010 to 2007 (small steps). If you have watched any of these movies, let me know if you liked them so I’d know what’s worth checking out and what’s not. I know these things are subjective, but I’d like to hear from you anyway. It might take my mind off things.
And if you have any perspective, I guess that’s fine too. :)
