Anticipation

Judging by the title of this entry, I'm going to assume that a lot of you, non-existent readers, are thinking I'm about to talk about Christmas. WELL I'M NOT!!! I really want to talk about the day after Christmas.

The day after Christmas is going to be a special day for me this year. Why, you don't ask? Two reasons. First, on the day after Christmas, I have been allowed to go record shopping for the first time since Labor Day. LABOR DAY!!!! My bare looking record shelves and I cannot wait. Second, I'm pretty sure this is the day exam grades come out.

I know this seems really nerdy to a lot of you. I will also take this time to point out that if you are just figuring out I'm nerdy, you may need some sort of evaluation. It's not that I like seeing my exam grades or anything like that, but if you work hard and study, you want to see the outcome.

Other than being pretty positive I bombed Organic Chemistry (why on earth did I take this class?????), I think I did pretty well. What I think and what tends to happen, though, are two completely different things. Last year, I thought I did well and ended up bombing three exams.

Lucky for me, though, I feel more confident this year. There's always that self conscience fear for me of failure. I am self conscience like most people my age. It may be worse for me, though, considering (according to my mother) every time someone looks at me I ask why they don't like what I'm doing/wearing/nothing more I just really wanted to use another slash.

The only thing on my day after Christmas list this year is good grades. I just hope Santa's unlucky brother Alfred who got stuck with bringing the presents on the 26th has enough compassion to bring them to me.

Be Smart

It still shocks me when people tell me they no longer go to the movies, but even I was surprised that I went to see a movie twice in one week. Yes, I am no stranger to a repeat trip to the theatre, but Booksmart hit me hard. I very rarely see a new release that rockets to the top of my list of all time favorites. In fact, I don't think it's happened since I saw Whip It 10 years ago.

If you haven't yet heard about Booksmart, it's an original, funny, empathetic take on an old classic. Two best friends want to go to a party after four years of a solely academic high school career. What it does differently from movies like Superbad (which I also love, by the way) should and will change the genre forever.

The two leads (Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein) not only land every joke and win you over immediately, but they also communicate the weird and wonderful world of female friendship through their performances in a way I've rarely seen. They don't compete, they sup…

Purpose

It recently occurred to me that I haven't posted in a while. Well, REJOICE!!! I just saw Titanic 3D and now I have a lot of emotions. Just kidding. The movie was amazing, though. In fact, it got me thinking.

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know that I want to be a screenwriter. If you haven't, I want to be a screenwriter. There, we learn something new everyday. When I tell people this, they often laugh. I understand why they do. It's a seemingly impossible goal. After a person is done with his or her laughing fit, I'm often asked why I want to do this.
Watching a movie like Titanic only strengthens my desire to do this. I've been a moviegoer all my life, but I'm different than what people think I should be. Instead of watching several movies once or twice and analyzing them, I tend to watch a handful of movies over and over again, studying them, figuring out what I like and don't like. I look at the few I connect with to see why I conn…

Disney Dreaming

Hi guys! I know it's been a while, but I'm still alive. This blog is probably going to turn into the "Abby sees a movie and then writes about why/how it inspires her" blog. No, that does not mean that I'm writing about The Avengers.

Actually, I wanted to talk about the new Pixar movie Brave. Brave is a movie I've wanted to see for a long time. It came out yesterday and I literally skipped out of the house to go see it. It's incredible. A must see. Buy that's not really what I wanted to say about it.

The movie got me thinking about my career. Now I know I've already written about why I want to be a screenwriter, but this is a little more of a post about what kind of movies I want to write. I want to write Disney movies.

Now, I know you're probably busy crying from laughter right now, but let me explain. Ever since I was very little, I've watched and been amazed by Disney movies. Disney's a pretty common part of a person's childh…
