"1....2.... Don't fall asleep or he'll get you...."

That's not really how the quote goes. It's more of "1....2.... Freddy's coming for you." But I think my change of it is true too!!
I was an idiot, or just really nice, I don't know which. My friend invited me to go to a midnite special screening/preview of the new 'Nightmare on Elm Street.' And for those of you who don't know, I don't particularly like scary movies. Intense is great! Horror, evil or something similar is not really something I want to watch. I was stupid enough to go watch 'Paranormal Activity' (which I had previously refused to watch) with this same friend back in the fall. I definitely think it's time for us to go see happy, silly, and perhaps even romantic movies. I'm done with the scary - for a long time at least.
I would have to say, that through most of the scary movies I've seen, there tends to be a pattern. I understand that Freddy came first, or early in the classic horror films. But, at least in this version, the child molester thing was not a surprise. I have never seen the original so I don't know what the story behind Freddy really is in that one. But this version was him being a child molester of some sort, although they never came straight out and said it. There are a lot more movies since then that have been about that. 'American Haunting' - yes, I'm going to ruin it for you - was about her father molesting/raping her. It seems like it's a crazy evil thing, but it turns out that it's just about her father being a disgusting man. There are others as well, but that was the first that came to mind.
I don't know about you - but that is a very disgusting thing and having horror movies that have that underlying thing isn't really that scary. I mean, it is, but it makes sense that they are being haunted and the kids are freaking out because it's a seriously awful thing to have happen to them.
Memories can't kill you, but repressed memories and emotions can. I guess what I'm trying to get across is that: Yes, this was a scary movie with scenes that made you jump, gross things happen, but ultimately I feel like I wasn't that scared from it. I'm not afraid of him haunting my dreams because I don't have any repressed memories/feelings.
So - looks like I'll be okay and survive sleeping. Which is good cuz I'm kinda tired today.

I'm in the 'Cool Kids' Club now....

I am the youngest and most single member of a book club. Doesn't usually bother me. But the first book they chose - don't get me wrong, it's probably an amazing book but I couldn't and wouldn't make myself finish it - was "The Five Love Languages" by Dr. Gary Chapman.
I know what I need to feel loved. I know that buying me things or telling me how amazing, beautiful, or perfect I am are not things that will make me feel loved. They're not terrible things, but not what I need to know that you love me. Supposedly this book helps you figure out what your 'love language' is so that you can convey that to your spouse/significant other and be able to strengthen the relationship.
Honestly - I don't know if there are such things as 'love languages' specifically or not. But I do know that really throughout the whole nite (2 hours at the restaurant) the main message was communication. Regardless if you know what your 'love language' is, or what your significant other's 'love language' is, you need to communicate that with each other. If you don't communicate, then knowing the 'love language' is not going to help the relationship.
So, not only was the entire nite mostly about husbands and some about kids (it's okay, Alice - I knew it would happen) it made me realize that things are so much more complicated than they need to be. Communicate - that's the key - and once you are good at that things can only get better.
Book clubs are so different, depending on who you're in the 'club' with. And maybe I should attempt a single's one. Or at least I should've gotten the Single's Edition of this such book - because I didn't read the whole thing. Nor will I be able to force myself to do so for awhile. Again - through the conversation it sounded like a great, informative, and uplifting book. But not one I could get through.

First Kiss

"For a kiss to be really good, you want it to mean something. You want it to be with someone you can't get out of your head, so that when your lips finally touch you feel it everywhere. A kiss so hot and so deep you never want to come up for air. You can't cheat your first kiss. Trust me, you don't want to. Cause when you find that right person for a first kiss, it's everything."
I don't know where that quote came from - I found it in a really old email I had.
Last nite I dreamt about kissing this guy I'm good friends with. It technically wouldn't be our first kiss, but basically would be. And it was amazing! But I might have to attribute that to not having kissed anyone in awhile, and that my dreams can be very vivid.
Either way, I would LOVE to have that 'first' kiss happen as described above.

I Feel Pretty

I was just complimented on my hair again. I never thought it looked that great in a french braid, but apparently it does. Someone on Thursday liked it, and again today. Yay for cute, but very lazy hairstyles. (And thanks, MOM, for doing it. haha)
I was also told I have some incredibly white teeth. I was actually thinking the other day that my teeth needed to be whitened. I guess you just need to darken your skin and then your teeth go white. Or just look more white. Yay for tanning beds! And the beach, of course!
I have decided that I much prefer to be tan than white, regardless of what the 'in' thing is. Although I probably won't stay tan throughout the winter, but once Spring is back on the horizon, so will my golden skin.

This might have been our graduation song - or maybe it was just big our senior year. Either way I was thinking about it today for some reason. And while listening to it - I got all sad. And not so much the missing high school or the friends from there, but because nothing is like the way you plan it. Or at least it hasn't been for me. And now my life is confusing, complicated, and frustrating. Definitely good times, but I wish it was different some days....

I tend to get lots of ideas for posts. Most of them are either short or just incredibly pointless and you'll wonder why you read it.
But even with all the ideas, I don't really take the time to do it. I'm afraid I will probably spout out way too much personal junk that's clogging up everything lately.
So for the next couple weeks (since I don't really post that often anyway) I will either have really short posts, or really pointless posts, or a mix of the two.
PS - I'm really jealous of some of my friend's posts. They are so creative. . . Boo for my uncreativeness.

Another PS - I have to come up with a religious skit for a girls' camp. Anybody good at skits??
