Letters to Juliet

Last night my Mom and I watched Letters to Juliet, starring Amanda Seyfried and Chris Egan. The movie was absolutely brilliant. It was refreshing to see a romantic movie that had good characters, funny lines, and, despite the out there plot, managed to feel believable the entire time. I quickly got home and IMDB'd Chris Egan, and learned that he also starred in Kings, a television show that is currently available to watch on Hulu. He is adorable, and also Australian! However, in Letters to Juliet he uses a British Accent and in Kings he uses an American one. I really want to find something that he is in with his Australian accent. Anyone know of anything?

Also, for your viewing pleasure, here are a few more pictures of Chris Egan from Kings.

Sadly, since my internship is only paid for weekend hours, and even then on minimum wage, I'm seriously lacking on the funds front. So, instead of buying things I will post what I hope to get once I have some sort of an income. (I've applied for a few other part time jobs. Wish me luck!)

Free People's Marrakesh Dress $98
I love this dress in the polka dot pattern, but there is also one in butterflies. Doesn't this look like the perfect summer dress? I would love to pair these with nude or white wedges and then go on a picnic! 

Nine West's Ponti Wedge $89

Steve Madden's Fauntain Wedge $79

Vince Camuto Empire Wedge $118

Here's a request to my readers in the blogosphere for help. Recently my blog started repeating posts. I can't figure out how to fix this issue. I tried using different templates that blogger made as well as trying to revert to the older version of blogger draft. I had tried to put in a new layout using a .xml file, but then, since it didn't work properly I went back to my old template. Does anyone have any idea about how to fix my problem? I would appreciate any tips you have.

**Update** I think I have solved the issue. Please let me know if it is showing up as double.

First Few Days of Summer Break

I'm finally on break, after writing about 30 pages for various papers in my History and Philosophy classes and a final on The History of Ancient Philosophy. Because my parents are working and my brother and sister are still in school, it's just me and the dog for now. It will be almost a month before my siblings are out for summer break. My brother's high school graduation is on June 25th! That's almost a month more of school than I have. My sister is also having a graduation ceremony for finishing 8th grade, that they call it "The Moving Up Ceremony," because the 7th and 8th grade is in the same building as the town's high school.

Also, I've kind of gone off the bandwagon in terms of my Happiness Project. I'm going to try and work on it more over this summer. My theme for May will be Creativity. I really want to get a head start on some creative writing that I've been meaning to do. My dream is to write a novel, but I have not written anything nearly that long yet. I've done mostly just short stories and poetry.

To help keep track of my goals to be more creative, I will post about my progress, as well as things that I find inspiring.

Right now, for example, I'm reading The Likeness by Tana French. It's a murder mystery set in Ireland and is her second novel. Her first novel, In The Woods, involves the same characters, though you don't necessarily have to read one before the other. I highly recommend it, though make sure you have a lot of free time before you read this. It's extremely hard to put down!
