Les temps sont durs pour les rêveurs.

In my last post I mentioned how much I wanted it to rain on Monday so I could be extra cozy at school... well I'm glad it didn't. Monday ended up living up to the stereotype and sucked hard. I've been trying to be more positive in life (and mostly succeeding, honestly), but the anxiety attacks I've been having more frequently in my ballet class are making it hard; the feeling seems to continue through-out the day, no matter how hard I try to shake it. :\

Oh well though. Today was a first for me! I went and saw a movie by myself, woowooo!
I had plans to go see the movie Amélie with friends at an old, classical one room theater nearby, but they all fell through. At first I wasn't going to go by myself because it made me nervous, but it's one of my favorite movies so I decided why not?! The movie was only playing once today and I wouldn't have had another chance to see it in a theater. It was actually an exhilarating experience, and I will probably venture out to do it more. :)
I'd like to think that by now, most people have seen Amélie (it's been out since 2001!), but if you haven't you should look it up right now! Unless you understand French (consider me jealous) you'll have to watch it with subtitles, but that's okay. The movie shows Audrey Tautou's quirky character Amélie not only as she strives to help those around her, but also as she grows to understand herself and find love (in the ever attractive Mathieu Kassovitz~).

"Without you, today's emotions would be the scurf of yesterday's."

I mean, REALLY?! How darling is he?!?

This movie is right up there with Lost in Translation and Garden State on my list of movies that makes my heart ache in a sometimes-good-sometimes-longing kind of way.

Here's two more recent photographs to continue welcoming spring, though the 81 degrees today made it feel more like summer!

I guess anything is better than the cold though, right??
