Today is a prime day to have a movie day. It is cloudy and a little rainy, and I just want to cuddle up, watch Halloween movies, and drink some hot chocolate. There are so many awful scary movies out there that I cannot help but watch.

I am such a scary movie guru, and love watching the ones that are not as popular as others. In my opinion, the older movies that are not as high tech as the newer ones have the better story lines. I sometimes wish that they were re done so that they weren’t as corny and had better special effects, but then I get scared that they will lose the awesome background stories.

I feel that the newer movies get so wrapped up in the special effects and gory details that they lose the reality of what can be so scary.

Some of my favorite scenes from some scary movies are at the end of Carrie when the final catastrophe at the dance occurs. When the pigs blood is spilled on top of her, and she has her final freak out, killing everyone who has ever hurt her in some way. The other is, well every scene from the Exorcist. I love those movies so much and wish they would just keep going. When I first watched those movies I couldn’t sleep alone for what seemed like forever. I was always having nightmares about the movie, but I ALWAYS went back for more.

I would love to hear about some of your favorite movies, and why you love them. Maybe I will hear about some new movies and will have a movie day this weekend!! WOOHHOO. Movie days are the best.

People Watching

414851f16d6d16585140c1fd3eb797a0

You are probably looking at the title and are thinking…what the heck? Yes. People watching.

People watching is by far one of the best things in the world when you are feeling stressed out or bored with your own life. I live near DC and I know there are a bunch of different personalities roaming around on a daily basis. I love this. So many different styles, conversations, and friendships I have seen, and in the least creepy way possible. I swear.

You notice the mom with the four children, all under ten, who is completely stressed out but still remains to have a smile on her face, because she knows that the only way to get through the day is by staying positive. The mom who is superwomen in disguise. The mom who can fight crime anywhere she goes. You cannot help but try to think about what she is thinking. Does she want to scream? How does she do it and still look good!? What museum are they going to?

Then you are fixed on the older couple, sitting on the bench across from you. The one who will not let go of each others hands.You can tell that they are so in love, and you only wish that you could have something like that at the age that they do. You think to yourself about your future. Where you will be in ten, twenty, even thirty years. Who you will be married to and how many children you will have. Will you be as in love as they appear to be? You want to be 85 and holding hands with your soul mate because that is what people deserve. You notice you are getting caught in your own head and decide to switch to another scene.

The man who is in a hurry to get somewhere. But where? Does he have a job interview? Is he late for a meeting? A date? Where is he off to, and in such a hurry. You want to follow him because, well, thats probably not a good idea. But this man seems important. In his slim fitting yet very dapper suit, and his leather dress shoes, and his slicked back hair. His skinny black tie. His cell phone to his ear. He is very important.

Then you notice the group of girls, laughing in a circle. More importantly, you notice the girl, who isn’t completely outside, but seems disinterested in a way. A girl who is half laughing, but something else is catching her eye… You look to see what is catching her attention because she almost looks sad in a way. She is fixed on a couple, who seems to be very interested in one another. She cannot take her eyes off of them, and you cant either. Why is she staring at them? Does she love him? Does she love her? Is she envious?

All you want is to be able to read these peoples minds, but in a way, you love not knowing. You love that you can sit there and just imagine. Imagine what these people are going through. Get inside their heads and their thoughts, and just make up stories.

I have always been a sucker for people watching. It has always helped me to take a step away from my life, and think about others. Not having to worry about yourself, or your own problems is the best remedy you could have.

So, try it. I urge you to. It really is awesome.

HUMP DAY!

01a9cbaef9d75377d767b9569a6bbb2a

Its Wednesday Wednesday Wednesday and that means it is HUMP DAY! Hump day meaning..you are finally halfway through the week and getting closer to the weekend! Wednesday’s are awesome for me here at Wilkes because I usually have a pretty low key day in terms of work load and places to be. I get up and go to my hour and forty five minute ceramics class, and then a couple hours later I head to my feature writing class. Both of these classes, although very different, are probably my two favorite classes this semester.

Ceramics allows me to get dirty and get creative with my hands while feature writing gives me the chance to get my thoughts out on paper. There are so many times that I find myself with so many ideas, but I never want to say them aloud. Instead, I write them down on paper, or on this blog, because it gives me a sense of protection from other peoples thoughts.

Wednesdays always give me a little hope for the remainder of the week. I know that once Wednesday comes, I will be able to push through the rest of the days. I got this far so what is stopping me?

SOOOooooOOoOooOo….

Bring it on Thursday because I cannot wait for Friday to get here!
