Movie Fest

I have seen quite a few movies recently. Today I went to see North Country with Charlize Theron, Sissy Spacek, Frances McDormand. It is a movie about sexual discrimination class action lawsuit. It was a good movie and Woody Harrelson had a part and his role and acting in the movie was outstanding. Charlize Theron's performance in the movie was excellent not quite Oscar worthy, but damn close.

I went to see the movie, Proof, with Gwyneth Paltrow, Anthony Hopkins, Hope Davis and Jake Gyllenhal. All I have to say is the movie had a strange, peculiar, abrubt ending. They left open for a sequel, unfortunately that is very unlikely.

Last week, I went to see, Waiting, a movie about waiting tables. The only way you could possibly enjoy this film would be to have been high. The worst part was an extended crotch scene of an unkept bush. The movie had no plot and the legendary Dane Cook who plays the cook in the movie did not have even one funny line. So, we watched 3/4 of the movie, I found it quite offensive and felt ripped off. So, I asked for my money back. I than received a couple expired coupons that I was told would be good for next time.

My saving grace this fall has been the movie, Elizabethtown, starring Orlando Bloom & Kirsten Dunst. I really like this movie even though it had a running time of 2 hours 20 minutes. Sometimes I feel that is too long, but hey $9, you get your cheddar's worth. Kirsten played a Chatty Kathy type character and Orlando's Character often seemed uninterested, but for some reason the movie works. I really enjoyed the scenery and the views along the drive home, another pluse the ending didn't suck.

The road to a Master's Degree

The road to a Master's Degree is challenging. The application process, the looking for just the right school, and making sure everything will work out. I just graduated with my Bachelor's degree, but I feel I need to push to go onto Higher Education before I think about changing my mind. I know if I let time pass it will be something I will regret. I can do it I have faith in myself and faith in my family and most of all faith in god. I feel everyone is hear to do something. Something that will leave their stamp on the world or leave a mark through something they have created, achieved, inspired, taught or gave of themselves. I would love to one day teach what I have learned through my journey in life and give someone else the feeling that you have when you accomplish receiving your degree. Education is so important and I want to learn more and more each day. My fascination with learning came a little later. High school was not where I shined. I feel that when you want to learn something you shall embrace it, but when you don't it is better not to go to school. When someone is pushed by others they will not succeed. Education is a gift to yourself and it will strengthen your knowledge and build your ability to achieve greatness. I am searching for my gifts. I am grateful for those gifts I have and will accept gifts (things that I am good at) when God gives them to me. I do believe that everyone has natural talents and it is only a manner of cultivating the talents that you are good at. Focus is the key. Stay focused on a path, not the path to the least resistance, but the path of greatness.

Sometimes I feel like Dougie Howser MD and than I am reminded that is a character imaginary!

Tonite while listening to Neil Patrick Harris on the new show, How I met your Mother, talk about his blog I am reminded once again of him typing on the computer. I actually watched the show when it was on, so I am dating myself a bit, I was a little girl at the time. There are people who claim to have invented blogging or keeping online diaries. However, the internet was not available when Dougie Howser MD was typing in his daily life on his computer and reading it aloud for a tv audience. I wonder why it took so long for blogging to catch on and find it even harder to believe that some people still do not know what a blog is. I also find it mysterious the amount of bloggers that enter into the blogoshphere each day and write one post never to come back again. It requires work to write a blog and it is not really the thing for someone lazy or someone who lacks thought. There are people who go nowhere each day, acomplish very little, therefore leading to a terribly boring blog. Than there are those that write about fantastic experiences that leave you wondering if they are even true. My Blog is true, but sometimes I wonder what if I spice it up a little bit. No holding back just no holds barred. I still write with a knowledge of a reader and I think I need to free the inner writer within.
