the man in black

i have always been a fan of johnny cash's music and though i could sing you every lyric of his songs, i couldn't tell you a thing about the mysterious man in black.

i had been meaning to change this by watching joaquin phoenix's portrayal of cash for years since "walk the line" was released, but never managed to get around to it. however, now that i am forced to lie in my bed and cram in all of the movies ive been meaning to watch (horrible, i know!) i decided to learn more about little j.r. cash and how he became the famous musician the world came to idolize.

if you haven't seen "walk the line" i suggest you watch it immediately. its beautifully done and joaquin and reese witherspoon's performances are equally stunning. i was so in awe of the love story between june carter and johnny cash- i found myself crying multiple times throughout the film as i watched cash desperately pursue june (and of course again when she finally agreed to marry him). cash's childhood was depicted so well i felt the happiness and trust he had with his older brother, jack, and the hurt he experienced from his fathers attitude toward him. and of course, watching the way cash shot to fame was incredible and made me wish i could have been one of the insane screaming girls at one of his early concerts.


though i didnt think it was possible, i think i am now even more in love with mr. cash (and joaquin, but that seems to happen every time i watch him in anything).

looks like i will be listening to a lot of "live at folsom prison" for a while... :]

have a great rest of your friday everyone!

my favorite winter things...

christmas music. reading by the fireplace. scarves. baking cookies. coffee. kisses under the mistletoe. hot apple cider. new years eve. watching the snow fall from inside a warm room. mittens. making gingerbread houses. candles. long thick socks. holiday cheer. ice skating with someone special. twinkling lights. hot breakfasts on cozy mornings. ear muffs. wrapping presents. a new years kiss. holiday specials on tv. egg nog. the smell of christmas trees. building forts. friends, family, and the sense of magic all around.




what do you love about winter?

december 19, 2012


two days ago, toward the beginning of my bed sentence, i watched the jersey shore for the very first time.

yes, you heard me correctly. i had never once seen the drunk, fist pumping, tanned guidos and guidettes of new jersey ever before in the entire six seasons it has graced our television sets.

i have to admit i have gone out of my way on a number of occasions to avoid the loss of brain cells that would inevitably come from viewing the show, but figured, “here i am confined to my bed for at least the next three weeks and mtv is having a marathon leading up to the show’s series finale on thursday SO, what better time to start watching?”

as awful as the show is, and as much as i am completely uninvested in what is going on in each episode (i pretty much use the show as background noise as i go in and out of sleep all day) i find the world of vinny, the meatballs, and ronnie somewhat entertaining. of course, so does the rest of the world or the show wouldn’t be in its sixth season already. in all honesty, being a meatball doesn’t seem too bad. i think of all the show’s stars, the two self proclaimed balls of meat, deena and snooki, are my favorite. these past few days, however, have not made a jersey shore fan of me or anything close. when the show ends on thursday i will be not only unemotional, but hopeful that something a little more intellectually challenging will air in its place, though im sure mtv has no such plans.

not to worry though, i haven’t spent the entirety of my time rotting my mind with episodes of the infamous reality show-i have also been holding my own quentin tarantino marathons, rewatching girls before season two’s premiere, and browsing baby gap’s website, as well as a number of other lovely baby sites, planning outfits and nurseries for my future children, along with their names…. >.< (most likely, a post about my future children will be coming very soon as i have been thinking about the subject a scary amount lately)

with all of my free time, i am also going to start up a new blogspot! this blog actually began as one years ago, but with its mostly picture format i figured tumblr was a better fit. now with the addition of writing posts, i think a transition to blogspot is in order.

as soon as the new blogspot is up and running i’ll post the link and hopefully some of you will continue to follow! id love that! :]

till next time <3

NOTE: i did tune in to the series finale last night and have to say, i was sad to see it end and am looking forward to snooki and jwoww's next season :]

an instagrammed look at my recovery these past few days...

         










    

post-op

this past friday, the fourteenth, i underwent a septoplasty surgery to correct my good old whistlin and deviated septum. therefore, i am banished to my bed until further notice from my doctor.


with all of my free time and swarming thoughts, i figured, since we live in the day and age where each of the 6,973,738,433 people on this earth are under the impression that the rest of the world is anxiously awaiting their every facebook check in or newest instagrammed meal, why not take to the internet and share with you my every “save me im bored” plea or “i want pizza so bad right now” wish?


hopefully you enjoy! maybe you are even recovering from a surgery of your own and, out of boredom and desperation, stumbled upon this and are reading it now! either way, welcome, i love you, and here it goes!


today i was thinking a lot about ice cream. though this is a common, and actually pretty constant, thought in my head (especially seeing as i work at coldstone), in the days leading up to my surgery i fantasized excessively about my recovery in which i would lay in my big fluffy bed all day and feast on all the ice cream my heart desired! however, this dream came to a screeching halt when i saw my doctor a few days after my procedure. i have an extremely cautious father who never forgets to ask even the smallest or silliest question and after what i found to be an unnecessarily thorough conversation between him and my doctor over sorbets, ice cream, sherbet, and frozen yogurts, my doctor informed me that the dairy in ice cream would ultimately make my recovery more difficult/uncomfortable. ice cream coma dreams=crushed


today at a follow up check i was disappointed to hear the doctor still didn’t want me to have visitors because i could get overexcited causing my nose to bleed (really cool, i know). still, this was especially disappointing because one of my visitors was going to bring me ice cream! my doctor then told my mom and me that a few days ago he had to have a twenty minute discussion with a patient about the problems with ice cream and recovering from a sinus surgery only to pause at the end of his story and say “oh wait…that was YOU”. needless to say, i am still ice creamless :(


maybe tomorrow…? :)
