Today, like many other days, the job search begins. I find that when I am not looking, that’s when all these jobs want me to be a part of the magic, but when I am really really trying to find something, they are all hiding. The irony baffles me, but hey, that’s life

Back on subject.

I took a short break from the grueling work day (jokes), and decided to watch a movie that I have never seen before. I went on my HBO GO page and picked the first movie at the top of the alphabet titled “About Time”. Not sure if any of you have ever heard about it or seen it before, but I really truly liked it. I also thought, what world am I living in for not knowing this movie because one of my favorite actresses of all time was in it. Rachel McAdam’s. Babe.

Carrying on.

Its a movie about a guy who lives a pretty boring life until he discovers that he can travel through time. He does not have the ability to change history but he can, in fact, change some of the major, or not so major moments in his life. This movie is basically a decision of what he makes of this gift.

He immediately goes back in time to try and make a girl fall in love with him, but he soon realizes that maybe she is not the one for him. He moves to London to move on with his life and become as successful as he possibly can, as an up and coming lawyer. He finally meets a girl that takes his breath away, and through his time traveling, and quick wit, was able to win her over. The built a beautiful life with one another.

But what Tim, the main character, realizes soon enough is that his time traveling abilities cannot save him or his family from the unexpected tragedies that affect everyone everywhere in a lifetime.

Tim learns, throughout this whole process, that maybe he didn’t need the time traveling to make the most out of life, and maybe, things just happen…because. It is a funny love story with a touch of sadness, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Obviously the movie isn’t a work of fiction, but it taught me a thing or two about the craziness of life. We always wish that we could change how things play out, but in reality that just takes away from the beauty of it all. If we knew how things were going to work, we would never be able to make the most out of the life that we are meant to have.

“We’re all traveling through time together, every day of our lives. All we can do is do our best to relish this remarkable ride.”

This quote says it all. Stop worrying about what you need to change about the past. Live in the now. Focus on the now. Be in the now.

definitely check out the movie though.

MOVIE DAY!

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.
