The Fear... 2012

^^My dad doing search and rescure with the FEMA team after the Haiti Quake.
Earthquake hits Haiti.

Earthquake hits Chile not even a month later. Triggers tsunamis.

Everyone is claiming that the world is ending. Everyone is saying that 2012 is starting.

Like swine flu and umbrellas, among some other things, I do not believe in 2012. I like to think positively about my future, aka the next two years. I do not want the world to end. I want to get married and have a family and not think about what I am going to do to survive on December 21, 2012. That's only three days before Christmas! I like to think I won't have one Christmas left but years of Christmas' to look forward to.

2012 scares me. When I hear people talking about it, I cover my ears and walk away. As a somewhat hypochonriac it makes me nervous and I don't like that. We all already know that John Cusak will survive.

I haven't experienced enough of the world yet for it to naturally destroy itself. It's just not fair.

Shutter "Long" Island

^ Mark Rufalo (sp?) totally checking out Leo's butt!

So since I first saw the trailer this summer I knew it was a must see, drew me in right away, not so patiently awaited the opening day of Shutter Island the new film by Scorcesee, starring Leo (as the 8 year old me sighs) and that guy from 13 Going on 30. Reminding myself of it's October opening date I sadly found out it had been postponed to March, blech. I was super excited to see it but then after seeing the trailer more than a hundred times more I felt the movie could go two different ways, which in a sense it did.


  2. Too much to follow to lead to a bad ending

I will not lie, The movie was great, it was beautifully done and of course Leo was brilliant alongside Sir Ben Kingsley (that sexy old man from The Wackness) however, like Avatar, there was nothing I could find that I LOVED about Shutter Island. Maybe because I paid too much attention to the wrong details or because I was too busy solving the mystery (I'm a natural film Sherlock Holmes with suspense movies). Maybe what put a bitter taste in my mouth was the turtle slow pace of the film. I understand that walking scenes are to build up suspense but not when it turns into 2 minutes of walking. It could have been the slow followed by the suspense big twist that just left me feeling some sort of mindfucked, excuse my french.
Needless to say I definately reccommend the movie because its a great twist and a great film. I myself feel that I have to see it a second time so I can now realize the right details. The acting alongside the screenshots are definately worth it, and hey you can always grab a matinaee!

Hello blogging world!

Is there anybody out there?

I've finally decided to give this blogging thing a go for good. Seems like now a days blogging has become a prerequisite for most job positions and since I'm headed for a career path in the wonderful world of Public Relations I figured I might as well get going on this blogging business.
This blog won't have a specific focus, all I can say is to expect lots of recipes, videos, Broadway shows, book reviews, venting, and advertising campaigns as well as viral promotions for your favorite Purchase celebrities.

Today marks the third snow day this month and I am escaping the big snowstorm by venturing home to Long Island. From what I hear everyone on campus is deprived of cable television, you guys aren't missing much considering I know you have all watched enough Planet Earth and Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Snow days for me mean laying in bed watching unlimited amounts of Dexter and online window shopping for things I can obviously not afford. Luckily I won't have to go back into work until Tuesday and the bulk of this weather will dissipate.

I came across this video on StumbleUpon and it makes me laugh everytime I see it. The only problem is that I still can't figure out if it's real or if it's a joke?
