An assortment of magical delight...

Sunday, December 5, 2010

I just got back from seeing Disney's "Tangled" and boy, I do believe that I've found a new favorite. I enjoyed it so much, I bought the soundtrack on iTunes when I got back to my house. I tend to obsess over soundtracks, so it'll most likely be a staple in my car for a while...on top of all the Christmas music, of course.


I love Christmas a lot. I helped the parental unit carry down the boxes (no accidental tripping and falling into boxes this time around, (un?)fortunately), and they're just sitting in my living room, waiting to be opened. I love my parents, but the older I get and the more I observe their daily activities, the more I realize where I get my procrastination from. Can procrastination be gene-oriented? I should ask in Biology tomorrow.

Probably not, though.

So many people yesterday (and by so many, I think there were around four...) told me that I looked "cute." Cute. Me? I'm fairly certain that they all meant it as a compliment, but it really threw me off guard. I didn't try extra hard to get around that day or anything! Figures that might happen, having spent loads of money on expensive makeup over the past few years. I'll be honest in saying that I my day brightened a lot having heard them say this to me (after the whole initial confusion). I don't really receive compliments very often, and when I do, I don't really acknowledge them the way normal people do. I tend to twist them around, if that makes sense. I thinks it's some weird defense mechanism I have...against what, I don't know, but it's always been present in my life. Yesterday, however, was a different story, and I can't pinpoint as to why it was, but it was. I felt sunnier yesterday for sure.

That being said, I think that it's pretty important to acknowledge the goodness and beauty in people more often. I feel like so much of what we talk about in all aspects of humanity is critical and pessimistic. The idea of paying it forward really does pay off in the end, you know? It's sad that this concept is just an "extraordinary" idea instead of something that's constant and normal.


Tomorrow's Monday. Two weeks left. What in the world.

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad." "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
