    This is my recent purchase from Etsy. My Kindle is excited! 
I got a sewing pattern, too, and I’m going to venture into the sewing world and make my own, eventually. I’m nervous because I am a sewing noob, but I feel determined.
Stay tuned.

    Favorite movie of 2010: Black Swan
Throughout the course of the entire year, I’ve taken a fair number of trips to the movie theater (it hasn’t been as frequent as before considering the absence of my brother thus the absence of free admission. boo). But anyway, this year also marked the first time I’ve ever walked out on a movie (Love and Other Drugs…don’t bother arguing with me). 
But I want to talk about my favorite of the year. Black Swan literally swooped in (well, no, I mean figuratively) and gave me the most thrilling and satisfying visual experience to such a haunting story. The aftermath left me in a weird, uncomfortable state, but the kind of uncomfortable that made me thirst for understanding and analysis. I love when movies do that! I’d rather not go into a detailed review, so I’ll just say hands down, best movie I’ve seen this year. And perhaps it had the advantage of being released at the end of the year leaving no room for later competition. Regardless, it was excellent in my honest opinion!

My sleep schedule is officially the same as an owl’s. 
I’m currently bumming around with my kitty. 
This is her in awe of the African Cats preview. She looks so captivated.

Goin’ back in time for a hot second. I just uploaded these pictures onto my computer because I don’t use my point-and-shoot too often.
Anyway, I won a happy hour party at Howl at the Moon in the city. This is me with Katie and Joseph. Joseph looks stunning in my scarf.

    Merry Whatever-Holiday-You-Celebrate-During-This-Time-of-the-Year! My family celebrates Christmas.
And here’s a picture of the lovely display that my mom did in our living room. 
When I was little, I had a magical moment with Santa Claus. Right before going to bed, I left out cookies and milk for him. Lo and behold, the next morning they were gone, but a note written on a piece of wrapping paper was left. What the note said is blurry in my memory bank, though I’m sure they were nice words. I don’t believe I ever shared this story with my parents because I wanted that little piece of magic to remain within me. 
And so, the years have gone by, I’m much older now, and this Christmas I’ve done a lot of thinking and reminiscing more than celebrating. I will admit that right now, I am way too immersed in a food coma state to come up with some inspirational ending to this post, and truthfully I’m not sure where I wanted to go with it. All I’ll say is, Christmas has grown to be a time of gratefulness and hope for me—I am grateful for food on my plate, a roof over my head, a family, my boyfriend, and friends. I am hopeful for even better times to come and a fulfilling life without having to settle with the mediocrities and limits of reality. I think with a little imagination and hard work, anything is possible.

I present to you my life for the world to see! The Internet is extraordinary, suddenly everyone is an acclaimed author.

But please note that ALL of these pictures were taken by the hands of ME (unless, of course, I'M in the picture) with the camera I purchased. Take them without crediting me, then consider yourself doomed for the worst.

Cheers!
