F L I C K E R (a post about good movies)

So I’m taking an Intro to Film Theory class, which is an awesome class, obviously, because you get to watch movies. Granted, you have to write papers on the movies after you’re done, but it’s still a pretty good deal. The first movie I watched was Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. #1 because I’ve heard lots of people talk about it but hadn’t seen it yet, and #2 because it has to do with fishing and Emily Blunt, which I like both of. It was a super good movie, but the second movie I watched was even better.

Someday This Pain Will be Useful to You is kind of one of those artistic, funny, messy, personal I-feel-like-I’m-watching-a-good-book-movies. It’s about a 17-year-old boy who is struggling with his existence, identity, and what he wants to do with the rest of his life. I’d recommend this movie just because at the end it makes you want to think about hope and good stuff. I like movies like that. (#imsuchasap) It reminded me to be lighthearted about even the hard stuff. So rent it and give it a watch. Definitely worth it.

Side-note: I also watched Anna Karenina, but it just made me depressed (even though the cinematography and production design was ah-may-zing). Haha. Only watch that one if you're in a cynical-depressed-love-is-war-tortured-artistic-soul-Victorian-hoop-skirt-Keira-Knightley mood.

Also, I've been trying my hand at typography (see above). Hoping my handwriting will become decent by the time I'm 42 or so...? Maybe.


  1. hey girl. thanks for following along my blog :] I've love scrolling through your posts and seeing your creativity and love for life.

    I've been wanting to see Anna Karenina! Thanks for the warning though. I'll be sure to watch it at the right time.

    Looking forward to following your journeys.

  2. oh ps. your handwriting rocks. you probably have just stared at it for too long!! ;]

  3. I'm always looking for a good indie movie. I'm going to see if my library has it. (For some reason my library has a wealth of those kinds of movies.) Also, I'm thoroughly impressed by your handwriting. It looks far better than anything I've attempted. I'm excited to be following along!
