Happy Tuesday! It's rainy & gloomy outside, which I love. But I'd love it even more if I could stay at home all day! Yesterday was a lot of fun, we had a spur of the moment family/friend breakfast of hummus, falafel, foul ( have any of you tried foul mudamas?), and pastries. It was nice to get together and have some laughs. We ended up heading out to Yogurt Mountain and the movies later. What did we see? Black Swan of course! You know if there is ballet involved I am all over it.
....... I wish I was a ballerina.
I didn't know much about the movie before we went and the only comment I heard was that the person left a little confused on their overall reaction.
What'd I think? I loved it. There were a few times where I wasn't sure I was following where the plot was going but I think I've figured it out. Oh and there were also some scenes that made me a *wee* bit uncomfortable, but thats how movies can be sometimes.
I think any perfectionist can relate to Natalie Portman in Black Swan. Her desire for perfection consumed her. It mocked her. It killed her. She wanted her role as the Swan Queen to be so perfect that she allowed it to control her life.
My goal this year is to appreciate and enjoy whatever I am doing, and focus less on how perfect I'd like for it to be.
