Midlife Crisis

This weekend I went home to visit my family and do laundry and get a hair cut! It was a fun and brief time home and I really enjoyed just getting a break. Evidently I must’ve really enjoyed myself since I slept almost 11 hours on Saturday! I guess I was finally catching up for all the lost sleep during the week! Needless to say I felt refreshed when I woke up.

After I woke up, I was flipping through the channels and happened to stumble upon my childhood favorite show, The Amanda Show, on Nickelodeon and needless to say, I was as entertained as I was when I was little! I even remembered all the sketches and spent hours watching the marathon that was on.

I’m probably obviously having a midlife crisis since I’m turning 19 in a few months and the reality that I have to grow up soon is almost settling in. But it won’t come without a fight! So now I’ve decided to relive my childhood and watch all of the old shows I used to love online.

Here is one of my favorite sketches from The Amanda Show! My favorite is Elizabeth Debbie!

Red Riding Hood

So yesterday I had time to kill so what better way to do it than going to the movies!? I saw Red Riding Hood and I really liked it!

The movie did a good job of giving a gothic/folksy feel to the story. It also did a great job of sticking to the original fairy tale. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time wondering who the wolf actually was and I was so surprised at who it ended up being.

I am a big fan of Amanda Seyfried and she did NOT disappoint with this movie. It’s great to see her play a more serious role since acting in Mean Girls and Mama Mia.

Since Red Riding Hood and Twilight were directed by the same director, I thought there would be too many similarities to Twilight and that I wouldn’t enjoy it but actually the opposite happened. The Twilight feel of the movie really added to the plot and the environment.

This movie definitely gets a thumbs up from me!
