Our second snow day of the year. Usually we've used them all by this time! Even though we had last week off, this snow day was much, much needed.

Anyway, yesterday I got a lot of mail :)
Valentines from my cousins ♥

Six more letters to add to my collection of college letters...

Also, yesterday in school, I received...
two sweet 16 part invitations! They're both on March 6th, but at different times. But that day is also my little cousin's birthday! Hopefully she has something on a different day so that I can go to all three!
Trish's is earlier in the day at a wonderful dinner and a movie place!

Gretchen and Jamie's "Casino Night" themed party. I'm excited to have an excuse to dress up!!

The First Night of February Vacation

I came home from a stressful week and decided to kick it old school and plugged in my old VHS player and watched Free Willy.
I love watching movies from my childhood for the following reasons:
1. I love watching the previews and remembering the time when that movie was out in theaters yet... and only said "coming soon to VHS" instead of "DVD and blue-ray" or even "DVD and VHS"
2. Movie mean something different when you're 16 than the when you saw it when you were 6. I can now appreciate the lesson being taught, and I can understand better the feelings of the characters.
3. It brings me back to a time when everything was happy and nothing was ever stressful. everyone was nice and I didn't have to worry about almost failing chemistry and doing all of my global homework. It gives me some innocence and reminds me that there was a time and there will be a time when this will all blow over and i will be happier again.

Sadly, I can't find A Bug's Life,
but I think tonight's movie will be Toy Story.

Dear Summer,

Dear summer,
I miss you.
I'm sick of school. I'm sick of winter.
I want your warmth.
Please come back soon.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

Never in my life have I cried so hard from a movie.

This was, to be honest, the most emotional movie I have ever seen.
The boy is so naive and has so much hope and faith that it is heartbreaking.
The characters affected me so intensely that I physically hurt after watching this.
The Holocaust is my favorite time period to learn about. I have read tons and tons of books on it and watched many movies about it. Though, prior to seeing this movie, I had never seen a movie or read a book that was so emotional and hit me so hard. It really showed the innocence of children and how their childhood was so much affected by what was going on in the country, even if they didn't fully understand it.
I highly recommend this movie. Highly.

"I felt like crying but nothing came out. it was just a sort of sad sickness, sick sad, when you can’t feel any worse. I think you know it. I think everybody knows it now and then. but I think I have known it pretty often, too often."
Charles Bukowski
