Have you ever had a movie that you remember adoring, then when you watch it again, you find yourself looking at the movie in a completely different light? Well I call this a “Be Kind, Rewind” kind of movie. I enjoy watching movies I haven’t watched in at least a year (usually more) and comparing what I remember of it, to what I thought about it immediately after watching.

With the new year comes new years resolutions. Every year I make resolutions, and every year I fail to attain them because I think I make them too grandiose. I know deep down that I have yet to gain the self control needed to lose 40 pounds and stop drinking soda, so I justify it saying that everyone breaks their new years resolutions.
This year however, I want to create some realistic resolutions. It’s only going to be a few, so that I don’t feel overwhelmed, and I’ll actually believe that I can attain it.
