Never Try To Hide Who You Are

Positive Outlooks Blog

Always be yourself. Never try to hide who you are. The only shame is to have shame. Always stand up for what you believe in. Always question what other people tell you. Never regret the past. It’s a waste of time. There’s a reason for everything. Every mistake, every moment of weakness, every terrible thing that has happened to you. Grow from it. The only way you can ever get the respect of others is when you show them that you respect yourself and most importantly, do your thing and never apologize for being you. — Unknown

4. Is there a movie(s) that you watch at a certain time(s) of the year every year? I only watch Elf during the holiday season, and actually any other Christmas themed movie is strictly reserved for the Holiday Season

5. Do you like animated movies? They are okay, the last animated movie I saw in the theater I cried like someone beat me, so I wait till they come on video and cry in the privacy of my own home.

6. What is your favorite genre of movie? Romantic Comedies

7. Do you like movies with sequels or multiple parts? If so, which ones are your favorite? Sometimes a sequel is required, but there are some movies that only have sequels because they are want to make a quick buck…. one of the most unnecessary sequels EVER…Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2.…. no one needed to see that.

8. What is your least favorite genre of movie? Sci-Fi  and Action

9. What is the worst movie you have ever seen? Fifty Shades of Grey. The book was absolute shit… so one shouldn’t expect much.

10. Do you like to see movies in the theater or do you wait until they all come out on video? Depends on the situation, depends on the movie… more often than not I hear about a movie and want to see it and it’s already gone.
It really depends on the movie.  There are some that just *have* to be seen in the theater, but most can wait until they’re out on video.

Bonus Question: what do you like to snack on while watching a movie? Since starting weight watchers I stay away from the concession snacks (empty calories, and way too much fat and sugar) So I bring my own, yes I know it’s technically not allowed, I ALWAYS bring carrots, if I close my eyes real tight they seem like chips or popcorn (it’s all the chewing that required and they snap) and Veggie Straws, which is a great alternative to salty snacks…

And since I’m working on my Korean I pose this question to you all 당신이있는 곳, 그것이 여기에 시카고에서 얼어 감기인가? … 따뜻하게!  (Is it cold where you are?, it’s freezing here in Chicago … Stay Warm!)

Music Monday : Chasing Cars

 

Music Monday

I always say that music is everything to me, so for the next couple of weeks I’m gonna do something a little different.. Music Monday’s. What I’ll do is go to my iTunes and randomly pick a song and tell my dear readers why it’s in my collection and why I like it…. this should be pretty interesting since I have a pretty eclectic collection of music….

This week’s random music pick is Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars

499469b3f1347

The first time that I heard this song I was watching Grey’s Anatomy Episode 2-27 Losing My Religion.. not sure which one that is… it’s the episode that Denny died (I still can’t talk about it….*heartbroken*. I have always liked the music that you use on Grey’s; not to mention that every episode is a song title.

Denny Died… Tyra Cried

I think me liking this song is a prime example of what happens when I make an emotional connection to something. I was all about the Denny transplant storyline (having had two transplants myself) and to see it end the way it did, moved me, then the damn song comes in… instant tears!

So naturally I had to find the song and download it …cause that’s what I do. I really love the simplicity of the song, the lyrics are easy to follow and it just about finding a little bit of solitude with the one you love. I should probably be honest and say that this is the only Snow Patrol song that I have on my iPod. Are there any other songs by this group I should have in my collection?

Now I have never seen he video for this song, this is actually the first time I’ve ever seen it . I like it…

If you haven’t heard this song…. you defiantly should take a listen and add it to your own collection

Chasing Cars can be found on Snow Patrol’s album Eyes Open

Until Next Time….
