Two months is a long time. I left my house early on the morning of June 22nd. I will arrive home the evening of August 27th. I've learned so much, done so much in that time but now I am ready to just remember what my room looks like and how to drive a car and what smog looks like at sunset. I've ordered a few things over the summer on Amazon and Fab and HONY and I am expecting a few letters from people and the postal service is my favorite thing and I could survive on the high of opening packages and receiving letters FOREVER. I'm feeling very stream-of-consciousness-run-on-sentence-y today. Oh well. At least I'm writing.
I'm at the point where there is so much to write about, that I just get scared and overwhelmed and write nothing. I am commiting to myself right now though. I am doing this. I am writing a post.
I decided to start a project for myself to watch at least a movie a week (hopefully more). I have SO many movies on my list to watch and I just wanna do it. If I wanna be extra cool, maybe I'll even write about them.
I watched Yentl (finally--my dad has failed me) the other day. I really enjoyed it. The Babs was lovely, of course. Although she is a bit of mixed bag for me. (I think that might be the wrong phrase to use...) I thought she did wonderfully, but she's a little too much of a name for this role. I mean, she's Barbra! It's hard to see her as a boy when you know that face and voice so well. I liked the subdued soliloquy-esque music. It was interesting and soothing. I thought Mandy Patinkin was great as Avigdor. I didn't recognize him as such a young man. My dad told me after that it was him and I flipped a shit. Love it.
I also saw Celeste and Jesse Forever in theaters the next day. I am in love with Rashida Jones mostly and Andy Samberg is pretty great too. They had awesome chemistry which was surprising. It felt like a pretty realistic movie which was refreshing. The cast was great and I really enjoyed watching it. It flowed well. I recommend it to the masses. The tagline on the site is "A Loved Story." I really like that.
I've been really inspired this summer to start watching good old movies and reading big-kid books and I've actually started to enjoy reading plays. It's been a good summer. I am excited to jump back into fall and really pursue the appreciation of art. It's one of my passions and I want to take it by the bullhorns now.
I also want to experience the teeming LA film and TV industry. I would love to be a PA or an agency intern or something. I wanna see an active film set or understand TV production. I wanna do it all. This year is gonna rock. I know it.
And on that note, have a wonderful night.
