finding someone to play the game with

i can't believe that i completely forgot to blog about The Young Victoria. i went to see it a few weeks ago in theaters and fell in love. Emily Blunt is quite convincing and the romance and passion between her and Rupert Friend feels very genuine. the movie combines the historical with the romantic love story in a way that feels honest and not cliche. if you like a political spin on the glam of royalty, and not just pretty dresses, i would definately recommend it. and if you like pretty dresses and an endearing love story, you will surely enjoy it as well. although, i do not encourage many people to look for movies online, i did find it on megavideo. but if it's still showing in theaters near you, it's worth the expensive ticket price.

if i haven't convinced you already, check out the trailer:

happy belated heart day, hope you were able to share it with the people you love most in your life. i know many people say that it is a hallmark holiday, but it's nice to hear that someone cares, from a family member or significant other. and the chocolate never hurts.

wishing you were here

sometimes when you think you can't go any further, it takes a little reassurance from the ones you love most. and other times it comes in forms that you would least expect it.

i'm currently under the weather, and although being bedridden should equal tons of posts, my mind is elsewhere. and it's not that exciting elsewhere.

however, there are a few things that have kept me sane...

this made me smile.

i find this adorable.

and this fits my mood to the tee.

hope things are better on your front. til next time,

like a bomb in a birdcage

i'm taking a break from my visual analysis paper. i know i shouldn't but well i convinced myself that i would be getting my creative juices going and would sustain me from getting writer's block. well it sounded more convincing in my head...

anyway, just wanted to share the two images that i'm comparing and contrasting. fun times. i technically have yet to start my final paper. i'm still in the 'notes' part of the analysis. however, there is nothing that a little coffee and fear won't do to keep me from sleeping tonight. combined with the fact that after tomorrow, it's basically the weekend. ok, once again, it sounded more convincing in my head.

so this is Gustave Courbet, The Sleeping Spinner, 1853

and this is Jean-Francois Millet, Young Shepherdess with her Flock, 1862

and this is a little suggestion by pandora. it's A Fine Frenzy's 'What I Wouldn't Do'. i think it's adorably catchy. hope you like it.

well it's time to go back. but i hope you are having a good week. a plus tard mon amie,

trying and flying to capture perfection

Meet me halfway, right at the borderline
That's where i'm gonna wait, for you

I'll be lookin' out, night n' day
Took my heart to the limit, and this is where I'll stay

sometimes i wish that i could capture special moments with my camera. those little moments in life that feel perfect. those little moments that i know with all my heart are perfect. it's very difficult sometimes because the camera doesn't do certain moments justice. but i guess i live for those moments in life. the ones that even a camera or the most eloquent words could not describe. at times i am frustrated when i can't find the correct words for my sentiments, but in reality, sometimes those are the best. because the moment that i can describe something perfectly, it suddenly loses it's je ne sais quoi.

i haven't been taking too many shots lately. school's sort of stolen most of my time. but i have taken a few. hopefully in the next week or so, i'll take some more so that i'll have a decent amount to post. for now, i'm going to return to my studies while day dreaming about photography and perfect moments.

i hope that this week you encounter something special. until next time,
