Ramble #27: Procastinating

Just updated my “About Me” page and I’m feeling very self-concious right now…. Oh my….

So, there are new pictures (yes, plural) and a bit more of description in the text. I decided to do this because, first of all, that picture was old and second of all because every time one of you chooses me for a blog spotlight you never have much to say about me, which lead me to realize I didn’t say all that much about myself and I felt like changing that. With this being said, if you feel curious please check it out and tell me what you think 🙂

(As you may have noticed I’m rambing a lot today and that’s because I need to procastinate a little, studying is boring… I even cleaned my room today! That’s how bored I was! Thankfully finals are over in two weeeeeks 😀 )

Ramble #26: Buried in Boring Books

It’s not what you think, I swear! The boring books are my college books, which are all I’ve been reading for the past week and all I’ll be reading for the next fortnight… #savemeplease

The purpose of this ramble thought, beside rambling, which is what I’m doing, is telling you guys how sorry I feel that I haven’t been very active lately… I promise I have a lot of fun posts planned for the near future! And by near future I mean three weeks from now tops! Yey 😀

So please bear with the slow posting rythm for two more weeks, I promise I will not disappoint after that, so stay tuned 😉

Ramble #25: Alan Rickman

I still can’t believe Alan Rickman passed away.

I know it sounds absurd but I guess some part of me always thought the Harry Potter cast to be immortal like its characters…. And I guess a part of me also tought there might be a more Potter related content in the future with the original cast as they grew old.

I wish Alan had such a fulfilling live as he would’ve liked. My heart goes to him and his family.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close tells the story of 9-year-old Oskar Schell, an inventor, amateur entomologist, Francophile, letter writer, pacifist, natural historian, percussionist, romantic, Great Explorer, jeweller, detective, vegan, and collector of butterflies who sets out to solve the mystery of a key he discovers in his father’s closet after his father’s death on 9/11, with the help of an older neighbour.

Little Boy is a movie about the 8-year-old Pepper Busbee, a “little boy” and magician in practice who, after his father leaving for World War II, tries to bring him back with the help of a priest and a Japanese neighbour.

 

 

The reason I recommend this movie if you’ve read and enjoyed Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is because both protagonists are amazingly special kids that find help in the most unexpected people. Both set to discover something about the fathers they are both really close to. Heartwarming stories with fantastic characters! I recommend both, obviously!
