A Realization

I've come to realize I'm officially addicted to watching movies. I knew before that I enjoyed a movie here and there, but now I've realized, I could watch movies for the rest of my life. I can sit and watch movies day in and day out. And don't even think about one movie ending and me not having another one to watch. That's when I sit there wondering, "What am I gonna do now?" For the past few days, Tim and I (more or less just me, seeing as how he rarely stays awake) have been watching movies that we've never seen. I continue to find a love for each movie! Once upon a time, I always thought I could only watch horror/mystery movies and action movies were only for guys. Now, I've come to realize I LOVE guys' action movies! Maybe it's because most horror flicks nowadays don't really interest me because of the lack of thought and time the creators seem to be putting into them. I don't know....but I will say I now have a better understanding, an appreciation, for action flicks, and I'm much more likely to pick up an action movie that I think I might like than risk paying for a horror flick that might be a good pick.

So, here's a short list of the movies I've thoroughly enjoyed watching lately. Hopefully you'll go out and test these flicks on your own!
  • Traitor: featuring Don Cheadle (an amazing actor), he's a terrorist AGAINST the US
  • Vantage Point: starring Dennis Quaid, he protects the US President from terrorists, or so he thinks
  • Deja Vu: starring Denzel Washington (that should already tell you it's a great movie), he tries to solve a bombing, but he ends up being a part of a special government team and tries to change what happened
  • Wanted: featuring Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy, & Morgan Freeman; McAvoy is entered into a fraternity that's supposed to help him avenge his father's death, but they have plans of their own
  • The Family That Preys: a Tyler Perry film (so you know it's a great pick), features Sanaa Lathan, Taraji P. Henson, Kathy Bates, & Alfre Woodard; this movie is sooo moving, and it has a great ending
  • The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian: I was never a fan of the books until I watched the first movie, that's when I read the first book and now the second movie is just as compelling
  • The Golden Compass: featuring Nicole Kidman & Daniel Craig, I thought this was just a kid's movie & I wouldn't like it, but I watched it and I was amazed because it really was a great pick

I was definitely ready to get off my bum and go take photos, but then I realized something: my camera is in my purse is in the car...tim took the car to work this morning. So, where does this leave me? Here. Writing blogs. I guess that's a positive way to see things, because I otherwise wouldn't have bothered writing. Oh well....I guess I'll just take photos once he comes home. It'll be my favorite time of day to take photos anyway.

  1. new the preschool in winter haven (lovin it btw...just waitin for that first big check!)
  2. new puppy...he's the cutest lil chihuahua in the world (and the baddest!); we named him aiden (btw that's irish for "little fire" which fits him perfectly!)
  3. another new puppy (maybe getting her 2mrw)...she's a mix of cur & bulldog (or something like that) and she's soooo adorable! we haven't figured out what we're naming her yet...

sorry it's been so long...

i didn't mean to wait forever to make another post. but let me update you! so, i went out with marcus (he was an hour and a half late- go figure!) and it was sooo nice to get out of the house...even if it was for only about 2 or 3 hours!! but yeah...we got a chance to talk a little bit. he was telling me his usual issue with how he needs to be single for a while after being with lauren for sooo long. i totally understand that point of view. sometimes you just feel like you're being dragged through the mud and you want to get up, dust yourself off, and run away as fast as you can. it's like trying to climb a ladder and someone is pulling your pant leg so you can't go any further. it' such a hassle....anyways, we started talking about why we didn't end up together (again) and he was telling me "you don't wanna be with me...i'm a sick person...real sick." that kind of scared me, but i was like, hello, i've only known you for almost 3 years. i'm sure i know enough about you to know that you have as much fun as you can without caring too much about anyone or anything. he's not "sick" he's just a young, hot guy who wants to live life to the fullest. if he's gotta make a few mistakes along the way, then so be it!! ugh...that boy frustrates me sooo much! i gave him the letter i wrote him. he was trying to read it before he left, but i wouldn't let him. elementary school!! lol but i didn't want to feel like an ass, especially after we just got done talking about that whole situation. but i talked to him for a couple minutes the next day and he said it was a sweet letter. but we didn't really go into it, so i don't really know what he has to say about it. i haven't had the chance to talk to him since then....i hate his work schedule, because if i don't call him in the morning, i won't get the chance to talk to him. it really sucks. i just want to get everything off my's a lot of build up to keep inside. sometimes i just want to take him by the shoulders and say "dammit listen to me for five minutes!!!" lol but you know, i'd be a total psycho if i did that! lol it's ok...i've waited this long to talk to him and i can wait a little longer until he's ready to listen to what i have to say. wow...drama.
