Good Will Hunting

Today I was reminded that I had only posted twice on my blog so i decided to change that. (two in one day!!) I also realize that I haven't posted any pictures yet, but I'll work on it.

The other day I watched Good Will Hunting for the first time. Usually I am very good about not watching rated R movies, but I have to say that this one was very good. Besides all the F bombs it was totally worth it. I loved this monologue by Robin Williams, so I will edit any possible swear words and share.

So if I asked you about art, you'd probably give me the skinny on every art book ever written. Michelangelo, you know a lot about him. Life's work, political aspirations, him and the pope, sexual orientations, the whole works, right? But I'll bet you can't tell me what it smells like in the Sistine Chapel. You've never actually stood there and looked up at that beautiful ceiling; seen that. If I ask you about women, you'd probably give me a syllabus about your personal favorites. You may have even been laid a few times. But you can't tell me what it feels like to wake up next to a woman and feel truly happy. You're a tough kid. And I'd ask you about war, you'd probably throw Shakespeare at me, right, "once more unto the breach dear friends." But you've never been near one. You've never held your best friend's head in your lap, watch him gasp his last breath looking to you for help. I'd ask you about love, you'd probably quote me a sonnet. But you've never looked at a woman and been totally vulnerable. Known someone that could level you with her eyes, feeling like God put an angel on earth just for you. Who could rescue you from the depths of hell. And you wouldn't know what it's like to be her angel, to have that love for her, be there forever, through anything, through cancer. And you wouldn't know about sleeping sitting up in the hospital room for two months, holding her hand, because the doctors could see in your eyes, that the terms "visiting hours" don't apply to you. You don't know about real loss, 'cause it only occurs when you've loved something more than you love yourself. And I doubt you've ever dared to love anybody that much. And look at you... I don't see an intelligent, confident man... I see a cocky, scared kid. But you're a genius Will. No one denies that

Skinny Love

Confession: I find a lot of my music from TV shows. Today, while I was simultaneously checking in PARs and watching Vampire Diaries, I heard this...

Bon Iver plays the original song with guitar, but I think it's pretty with the piano too.

I Blog Now.

... Well I decided to get a blog today. I've been thinking about it a little, and on a whim today I decided to actually do it. A few reasons why...
- I am awful at documenting my life. Whether it be in a journal or taking pictures, I am terrible. So I'm hoping this blog will help me document my life a little more.
- This summer is full of change. A lot of my friends are graduating college (Not me, I love school too much), going on study abroads, interning, and beginning their "real" lives. I am hoping blogging will help us stay connected through this crazy transition time.
- Blogs are kind of fun.
- I am a little ashamed to admit this, but I really wanted to get a blog so I could design my own page. Not sure if I'm happy with it yet, but I love collages!

So in my very creative titled blog, I will (hopefully) be writing about my everyday adventures. Whether it be vacations, school, music, or the occasional favorite youtube video. (I love me some failblog!) Let's see how this goes...
