A few highlights of February
It's been raining. A lot. Has anyone else gotten quite a bit of rain lately? The funny thing about rain, I've noticed, is the effect it has on people's moods. Lots of people get grumpy when it's raining. They don't like rain, they don't like to drive in it, they don't like the wet.
But me? I love rain. As a matter of fact, this month, when it WASN'T raining, I was listening to rainymood at work.
Try it; it's pretty great.
(I'm listening to it right now.)
(I'm at work right now.)
I've been getting into soundtracks again. Namely Pride & Prejudice (2005) soundtrack (love that one), and The Young Victoria soundtrack. And the people at work have been listening to The Greatest Showman soundtrack before open hours... at full volume. Can't decide if I'm mad or glad about that.
I've watched a few movies this month.
At the beginning of this year, I decided I wanted to try to watch more movies. As opposed to 2017, when I watched, like, five.
February Movies // 2018
You've Got Mail (1998) - A very sweet romance taken from the old movie 'Shop Around the Corner'. But with Tom Hanks.
#it's a great idea to email strangers, kids
The Young Victoria (2009) - So, so beautiful. I loved the story line. I loved Prince Albert. The soundtrack was also great.
#can i have a time machine now
Walt Before Mickey (2015) - I don't really have an opinion because I turned it off because it was boring. And the acting was just bad.
#where's benedict cumberbatch when you need him
Wonder (2017) - A very sweet movie of a little middle school kid. Plus, the dad was hilarious. I will probably show this to my children one day.
#glad i was homeschooled tho
Gifted (2017) - I could do without the language and a certain 'scene', but overall, I loved it. And Chris Evans being a perfect uncle is... well, perfect.
#what even is math
Cast Away (2000) - A very sad, classic movie. I loved 'Wilson', and Tom Hanks was great, as usual.
#i'm so sorry wilson
The Glass Castle (2017) - Too much content for me to enjoy very much. But I loved all the actresses who played Jeanette, and I liked her strong character.
#someone's cornbread ain't done in the middle
I've been painting a lot. Not as in 'Van Gogh' (I wish), as in 'houses'. Almost all of my work clothes have paint all over them. To get the house ready for sale, we are painting every room white. It's been fun, but tiring.
But I found I actually like painting bathrooms (but ONLY bathrooms). Who knew.
I finally cut my hair down to my shoulders. It's been hard to manage lately, since I had really frayed ends, but I couldn't find the time to cut it myself because I was so busy. So, I finally I took it to the hair salon and had her chop it all off.
If I was in the habit of posting pictures of myself, I would show you a pic right now.
But I'm not.
That's about it. Here's just a few more things that aren't important enough to talk about.
*When your friend asks you what's your favorite Tom Hanks movie is, and you realize you've seen ten of them. Out of like 50.
*Decorating the showroom at my job for St. Patrick's day is fun. And really glittery.
*I like to pay attention to the cinematography in movies.
*Thinking up lots of ideas for a (sorta) big Blog Project I have in mind (what's that? I'm hinting?)
*Acting dumb when sales people call on the phone is fun. (for me)
*Kids are messy (but great)
*I like a lot of marshmallows on my hot chocolate.
*Just for kicks, I tried to get onto my old Webkinz account. Boy, things have changed.
That is all, friends. Spring is coming, and lots of changes for me!
Wish me luck.
I hope you have a good March!!
