“I can do this; I can do this.” That is going to be my continuous thought for this next dreadfully busy week. Most of the time, I just want to flop down and die instead of continuing on with all of my crazy work.
However, I really am almost done with school. Is that a good thing? I am still not sure. What is a good thing for sure? These links! Enjoy.
Narnia is finished now, but life is even crazier. I feel like I am going to explode. However, I am trying to breathe deeply and keep pushing forward. Here are some links that made me smile this week (with one sad one). Hopefully they will bring a grin to your face too.
One week of performances down, one more to go. Only a little bit more time before finals and Florida. Everything is rushing past me. I feel like I am clinging to a palm tree during a hurricane. Hopefully, my arms will be strong enough to keep hanging on despite the wind.
This weeks links are a very interesting blend of various items. Hopefully, you will enjoy the list! Continue reading →
Over the past year, I have grown so much and been greatly blessed. There were both beautiful and heart-wrenching moments. As this last day of 2014 finishes, thinking and writing about my favorites from this year seemed appropriate.
Thus, I decided to choose ten different categories and write my ten favorites of those things. By the way, can you guess my favorite number for lists? Each list is in no specific order. Thus, one does not mean my favorite or the best. It is simply the order they happened in or how I wrote them down on the post.
1. Moments – The ones I will not soon forget
Studying abroad in Oxford
Writing, acting in, and touring with Theater on Purpose: Cathedral
Finding a waitress/running job for myself at a movie theater
Moving onto campus at school with two wonderful roommates
Seeing Demi Lovato in concert
Being a mother to a dying child in The Yellow Boat
Finaling in speech team
Receiving a job from my internship at Celebrity Cafe
Tutoring people at school (many great moments)
Feeling beautiful in my red dress at the film festival at school
Saying “I told you so” or gloating is not very kind. However, part of me feels like doing that in a non-malicious way. Just as I suspected, Into the Woods (which I just saw) was good but nowhere near as amazing as the stage production. There are some scripts that work better onstage than on film. That is simply how it is.
That being stated, I enjoyed seeing a movie again today. Yesterday, a bit of time was free which allowed me to go to a different show as you will see in my links. Read on to learn more about where I went and see the other things that interested me.
Have you ever felt both guilty about not serving people more and hurt because no one cares for you as much as you do for them? This has plagued me for much of my life but was especially difficult today. I long to be selfless, but being overlooked or taken advantage of stings.
On to cheerier matters, here are my weekly links. Art, nature, and England seemed to be the main themes. Perhaps that is not so hard to believe seeing how much I love all of those topics. Enjoy! Continue reading →
Television was not a normal pastime in my house. Sure, my sisters and I giggled over Zaboomafoo, Blue’s Clues, and one Barney episode that my grandmother had. However, our family rarely watched any shows.
In my high school years, I discovered Disney Channel shows and watched them online from Wizards of Waverly Place to Even Stevens. Yes, that is a bit embarrassing to admit. Since then, my tastes have changed. There are certain shows that really impacted me while others just made me smile. Here is a list of the key ones.
Huge announcement: Big Hero 6 is an awesome film. I laughed so hard, more than at any movie I can recently remember. Tears also came to my eyes at certain moment. I guessed a few of the plot twists but was surprised by other parts. If you want to see a great film that any age can enjoy, check this one out.
Anyway, here are some more links to get your week started or finish your weekend. One is political which might seem strange especially since I am afraid of politics or offending people. However, the story is interesting no matter what party you support. Other links have to do with eating disorder and other mental health issues as well as some fun events concerning television and movies. Hopefully you will enjoy them.
