Oh wow yet another person from my high school is pregnant. This makes 3 people from my high school, all within the year I graduated who have or are having kids.
A friend of mine who went to a different school has been a mom for like half a year and three of my relatives (one soon to be) all got pregnant at about 19.
And then one of my former childhood best friends just had her baby like 3 weeks ago.
This is really surreal. I’m not trying to shame them or anything, it’s just feels so, unbelievably weird. As for the lil bbs in my family, I am glad that they’re all gonna grow up together because growing up for me was pretty lonely at gatherings due to the fact that everyone is hella old.
ugh i’m so happy it’s stupid. like really stupid.
I’m 34 minutes in and Kill Your Darlings is already the most wonderful movie I could imagine - featuring my literary idols. The way most people feel about the Great Gatsby movie is how I feel about this movie.
I adore their portrayal of William S. Burroughs
I’m really glad that Lupita beat out Jennifer Lawrence (because American Hustle was the stupidest movie ever and I’m so over the Jennifer Lawrence obsession *come at me social justice warriors*… like why was she even nominated? The one good thing about American Hustle is the Arabic cover of “White Rabbit”) but I’m also really bummed that June Squibb didn’t win best supporting actress because I think she was phenomenal in Nebraska. The preview they showed of her flashing the gravestone wasn’t even her best moment in that movie (I’m still glad they showed it because I forgot about that scene and it was really nice watching it again.) Ugh I really do wish Nebraska won because it’s such a beautifully done movie, but I’m sure 12 Years a Slave really deserved it.
Also Matthew McConahay’s speech was really wonderful. And I’m really glad Her won Best Original Screenplay. Personally, as an individual who writes, I feel like Best Original Screenplay is a bigger honor than Best Movie but that’s just me.
I want to talk
To the trees
Because the television
Has nothing interesting
Three to ten hours per night, give or take-
yet it feels as though I have not slept in ages
unless I lay my head in your arms
for fifteen minutes
I’m not one to live in the past, yet nostalgia is one of the most painful emotions for me.
