Friday…the 13th!! (Cue eerie music. Just kidding.) Here’s what I’m:
Reading: The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. I was never much of a ‘self-help’ reader, but of late, I have been trying to stop complaining and look within. I came across several positive reviews of this book, and I bought it. I like it because Rubin writes it more as a memoir than a typical, stylised, step 1-2-3-4 kind of self help book. Here one-minute rule is a real gem.
Watching: Technically, since today is Friday The 13th, I could have chosen to pop in a Jason caper…but I chose otherwise. I watched Blue Valentine. This movie will leave you blue. No pun intended. It is a beautiful and stark portrayal of the deteriorating relationship a husband and wife share, and the non-linear narrative weaves in and out of their past and present. But I’m warning you, if you are an emotional bunny like me, you will feel upset by the end of it. Apart from being critically acclaimed, the movie also has Ryan Gosling. Which is the main reason you should watch it!
Listening to: Beautiful Ones by Suede. I used to LOVE this song when I was in school…and I used to love singing along to the video. This song reminds me of a time when I was chubbier, electro beats weren’t as huge as they are today and everyone used dial-up internet connections. Gosh I feel old.
Remembering: Nora Ephron. It’s been over 2 weeks. But you can never forget the line “I’ll have what she’s having.”
Have a great weekend everyone!
