Movie Night

I heard a lot of mixed reviews about Black Swan, however I was anxious to see it and decide for myself. By the time the credits rolled I was in awe of Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis. The story line was fresh and weirdly thrilling. I've always loved Mila on That 70's Show but the juxtaposition of her edgy character in Black Swan was exciting to watch. New actress crush.

This movie really made me miss my dancing past. I have dozens of old pointe shoes in my room reminding me of my ballerina dreams. I'm tempted to tie them up again and return to the clouds.

California Dreamin'

Huntington Beach, California

As this semester comes to a close, the work is piling up with exams, quizzes, projects, presentations, lions, tiger, and bears...Oh my! 

I've never been one to handle stress well. I tend to take out my frustration on the people I love most. And last night I received a reality check from my boyfriend. After a few days of being self-admittedly bitchy, Greg helped me realize I need to put everything in perspective. 

As with everything in life, "this too shall pass" (my family's mantra). Whether it's the best time of my life or rock bottom, everything evolves and changes constantly.  All the late nights studying and missing out on weekend trips will pay off. In less than one month I will be cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway with my best friend, Kathryn, in California.
