I will be the first to admit that I have been the worst blogger ever created as of late. I had the best time blogging last summer while I was doing Little Mermaid and for some reason life happened and I just couldn’t push myself to blog. I’ve tried to get back into the swing of the things. I’ve created over 50 draft titles but every time I look at them I don’t feel inspired. Since I like to use this as a stress relief I didn’t want to invest time in it if my heart wasn’t there. So instead I have found some challenges of things that my heart loves…movies, music and Disney. I have decided to get myself excited about writing again I am going to combine 3 challenges to make me happy to post again.
So here we go Day 1.
Movie Challenge: Last Movie You Watched
The last movie I watched was Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them. I waited to watch this one until it came out on DVD because I just wasn’t sure if I was going to like. I love the world of Harry Potter so much and after reading the Cursed Child and being a little disappointed I didn’t want that feeling with this too. Luckily I didn’t feel that disappointment when I finished this movie. I thought the acting was amazing especially Eddy Redmayne. It still felt like the Harry Potter world but it has its own character to it. I like the era its set in. I loved the fashion of the time period. I love the New York characters. I wish they would have ventured into the magic a little more but with several sequels coming out I think they can do that. I give this one 4 stars!
Music Challenge: A Song From Your Childhood
If you are going to have me pick a song from my childhood it has to be something from a show I loved as a child. When I was little there was a show called Sharon, Lois and Bramm. I can not tell you anything about them except that they sang a song with and elephant. They finished every show with the same song and it had little hand motions that went along with it. If I hear this it automatically takes me back to sitting in the living room at my Mawmaws with no pants hamming it up.
Check out the video of the song and see if you remember too!
Disney Challenge: Favorite Movie
There can be no question what my favorite Disney movie is. Nothing will ever compare to the love I have for Ariel. I dreamed of being a mermaid. I cried when I got to play one on stage. I still think Prince Eric is the most handsome cartoon there ever was. I still wish that Terry had proposed to me with Kiss the Girl playing in the background. For me there is literally nothing better.
Well so much for me keeping my promise to keep up with the blog lol. Much to my surprise the day that I wrote my original post was the day before my wonderful nephew was born. That being said the work I intended to do that night before and during time we were at the hospital on the blog did not happen. So now that life has gotten somewhat back to normal I’m back on the blog train. Lets hope I don’t derail as fast this time.
I’ve been thinking a lot about my purpose in life. It is my feeling that we are not put on this earth to just live and work and die and that’s it. There has to be a reason that God put me on this earth. I’ve struggled with this a lot lately. I’ve been married 7 years but I don’t really think I’m an exceptional wife. I’m not the best house keeper nor am I the best at making sure to grocery shop or do laundry on time. I am aware of my flaws and bless my poor husband he is such a help. I know we were put on this earth to love each other but I don’t think that’s my only purpose.
So it must be something else. Well it can’t be that I’m the best daughter or sister. I’m terrible at calling people or checking in. I often find myself so tired after work that I will do nothing else but sit in my room alone and not speak to anyone. This terrible character trait also makes me a sucky friend too. So this must not be my purpose either.
Work. It has to be work right? That’s a negative ghost rider. I made 10 years at my job in January and I have found this year to be one of the hardest I have experienced so far. I barely move from my spot in my office but I find myself beyond mentally exhausted on a daily basis. I have been faced with challenges every single day since the school year started. Sometimes I can cope and sometimes I think they are giving me an ulcer.
Ok so if I’m not the best wife, daughter,sister, friend or that great at work what is it? We already know about my no kids issue so its gotta be something other than that. Maybe its theater life. Maybe finally I’ve found my calling and know what I’m good at. Well if you would have asked me back in October I might have said this was true but now I just don’t know. 10 years of auditioning and I finally made a show. An amazing show and I loved it so much. Then I spent the fall working on 3 shows and loving it the whole time. But once those were over what do I do? I’ll audition for another show. I’ve got to hope that I’ve gotten better at my craft and I should have a decent shot. NOPE! I auditioned for a show and it was a big no again. This has me questioning everything all over again. Was getting into that one show a fluke? Am I a one hit wonder? Do I think I am better than I am? At any rate I’m not sure if this is my purpose either.
So what is it? Why am I here? I’m not sure if I’m really meant to know but I sort of wish I did. This is something I really need to work on. Maybe I don’t need to know. Maybe I just need to figure how to be ok with just being me.
Well blogging again needed to start somewhere. On my search for blog post ideas I thought about doing a movie play by play. You know like they do on Buzzfeed. We just got a Hulu subscription. We’ve barely used it so there is plenty of options for us to choose from. Of course I go straight to the “Back to the 80s” section and look for a good movie. I stopped on the Love is a Battlefield topic and there it was…Fatal Attraction! Neither of us have seen it and its a boring Tuesday night so why not. So without further ado here is our Fatal Attraction play by play.
T “what is this movie about?”
You know its the one with the crazy lady who boils the bunny
Oh man that kid is watching old school Nickelodeon and people are getting slimmed. I miss that.
Did Micheal Douglas always look like a middle aged man?

You know she ain’t dead
T “yes she is he drowned her”
*crazy lady jumps out of the water* told you
stupid man coulda killed that psycho how many times now and the wife had to take care of business.
Crazy….All of it
Well that was fun but next time maybe we will pick one that isn’t full of psychos. Have a good Wednesday everyone.
I’ve been floundering. I have been tired and sullen and frustrated and I need an outlet. I have decided to bring back the blog challenge. Some days I won’t feel like doing it but I am going to make a promise to myself to keep up with posting for 30 days straight.
I always liked to write in a journal but I never seem to have time for it anymore. No more excuses. Its time to bring back the blog.
