New Things

I'm back in the US now and of course I want to buy things. First purchase was a new lense! I've been wanting this for a while and found one for a great price. 

Next update is that I want to buy a new dog! My parents have grown too attached to my current dog so I feel I must leave her here with them. But that allows me to buy another one which means I'm super excited! 

I've been wanting to get a puppy for a long time and now that I have a new apartment that allows animals it's actually a possibility!

I like to watch movies

Movies I've watched since I've been in Spain in order from most recent to latest. 

This one. Whoa talk about speaking directly to you. It's a great movie and I recommend it to people who really want to get deep into a movie. The acting was phenomenal and they so deserved the oscar nominatins. I'll talk more about this one in a later post.

This was the only Mandy Moore movie I hadn't seen so I gave it a shot. Wasn't the greatest but I'd recommend it if you had nothing else to watch lol.

A pleasant surprise. I didn't see this in theater because I wasn't too excited about it but I'm glad I watched it now. The story wasn't quite what I expected and it had a happy ending. Jake can act and he showed it in this movie. I'm not a big war movie fan so I didn't like that aspect of the movie but I enjoyed when the sci-fi part came out. Could have been better if they would have made it harder to find the bomber but still a great watch. 

Again I like the sci-fi and even though it had the crazy corky dancer girl I managed to like it. I kept lumping this together with source code for some reason. I guess since they came out around the same time but I think source code won this one. 

If you haven't seen this rush to the theater now! I loved the final installment of Harry Potter and sort of sad that it's over. I felt more of a loss when the books came out because I was still young and enthralled in the book world but like everyone has been saying, this movie is an end of an era. 

A funny escape from reality. Everything I expected it to be and nothing more. The Justin and Cameron scenes were golden and I really liked the fact that the the Cameron character with all her flaws and quirks was still a likable character. 

Saw this because Bad Teacher wasn't in theaters in Spain yet but I wasn't disappointed. Good indie movie that makes you question if that bleach haired kid is the worst actor ever or the best.

Heard good things about this movie and even though the trailer gave everything away it was able to keep my interest. Like the twist at the end and the fact that Matthew McConaughey did some pretty awesome acting. 

This was kind of just a movie to watch because I wanted some kind of American aspect to my life in Spain. Sort of fell asleep in it but any way it wasn't too bad. I almost prefer Megan Fox to this new girl because ugh I just hate perfect people and we really don't need to see them on screen. Liked the moon aspect of the movie and them rewriting history like every other super hero movie out there made me laugh.

Contemplating the Long Hair

I've been contemplating growing out my hair for a long time. I haven't had it long since high school and I barely remember that. Still not sure about it but I wanted to know your opinions. I think I will eventually cut it short again but I would like to know what it feels like to actually be able to wear more than one style. (I apologize for the badly photoshopped picture but I wanted to have an idea of what it would look like.)
