Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman did a wonderful video for The New York Times and just answers simple questions and talks about life. After watching this, i asked myself the same questions. See if you have the urge to do the same.

This is how i feel about picking up my wedding dress today :


It's sitting in my father's closet...... I want to wear it every night while sitting on the couch and watching t.v. or playing computer games.

Sorry, i'm just a tad excited. It was more gorgeous today then the day i tried it on.

I heart my dress, the end.


The trailer for " The Other Boleyn Girl" ..... one of my favorite books of all time, i was scared this movie was going to be a disappointment .... but this trailer has completely proved otherwise ... the countdown begins! :)

So, i don't normally dabble in politics. I don't like the anger that it can bring out in people, and i feel that people can sometimes become to blindsided about what others think that they can't properly think for themselves.

Today i was listening to talk radio.... and they were talking about an incident that happened this last week with Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton and her campaign managers, etc. were on the road and stopped in Ohio (or possibly Utah... i always get those two confused for some reason). Before stopping at a local diner, Hillary's campaign people warned this diner that they would be bringing Hillary and many other top notch people, so be prepared. Once at the diner, Hillary spoke to a waitress that worked there, and listened to her story. It was a normal story of a single mother of two who was having to work two jobs in order to properly feed and support her children that she loved so dearly. Hillary was so touched by this story, that later on in the day on her campaign trail she re-told this story of this women she met, focusing on the financial hardships that people in America sometimes have to go through in order to survive.

Because the manager of the diner knew ahead of time Hillary and her team were arriving, he decided to comp all of their meals. Very, very nice of him. Especially for the fact that Hillary probably comes in tow with 10+ people.

So where is the problem? Hillary, nor anyone else in her whole campaign, tipped ANYONE inside that diner. Their whole meal was comped, Hillary had been "touched" by this women's story of her hardships of not earning enough money, and THEY DIDN'T LEAVE A SINGLE PENNY.

I'm not going to say much more..... cause i'm sure you all can guess my opinion on this. But i wanted to share...... I'm not saying this will or won't make me vote for Hillary (i still have yet to declare who i would vote for) but i think small stories like this make a huge difference and really show a person's true character.

Peace or War?

I've been struggling with something lately and i don't know how to take care of it. All of my life this has been somewhat of an issue but i've always been able to come out on top i guess. This may seem stupid, but this has bitten me in the ass way to many times.

I'm to nice. Sad, huh? haha

I tend to put my feelings and emotions on the backburner when other people are involved, and because of all of the wedding planning i've been going through, i've discovered that it can actually become a problem. I can't really go into details because i'm not sure who reads this.... but i put a lot of love into picking certain people to be in my wedding and they aren't reciprocating. ( Well, only one of them isn't). This person has screwed me over 3 times now, and each time i just keep thinking it was because they were to busy or really did have something better to do. But now i realize that ever since we were children i've put more into our relationship than she has, and that is how it currently is. I guess i'm stuck in thinking that she cares as much about me as i do her.... since i've always looked up to her.

So here is my dilemma .... do i finally learn how to stick up for myself and tell this person that she needs to either start being involved? .... or that maybe it's better that she isn't in it. normal way of handling this would be to let it slide and just let it play out while my feelings get hurt, because i don't want to upset the other person. I don't want them to think of me as a bad individual and that i ruined our relationship. Now that i write this i can see how irrational that sounds, but i've always been this way.

So i guess this is more of a rant, but i ( simply put) don't know how to be mean, lol. I guess i've always put out so much more for my friends, and when i finally ask for them to be there for me, i can tell which ones really care about me and which ones are just there because they've been there for 20+ years.
I know everyone just says to just do it and i'll be happy afterwards, i just don't know how to make that first step and how to communicate this to them without being rude.
