December Dreaming

If you read my blog at all last week, you may have picked up on the fact that my life has been overloaded and overwhelming lately.  Another month, though, and it will be a lot easier (and hopefully with job potential).

All I can do is keep my eyes on the prize of graduation, and make a list of things to look forward to in the meantime.

I am excited to graduate, head to the beach with my best friend, and spend a potential few weeks at home with my family!

There are two other things that I am extremely excited for, and both of them are in the form of movies.

First, Les Miserables.  YES. I am beyond excited for this one, and if you haven’t seen the international trailer, please watch this:

Anne Hathaway is fabulous, as is Eddie Redmayne.  Actually the whole cast is pretty fantastic.  Eek.

And then, there’s the Great Gatsby. Holy cow, I’ve been waiting for this one for forever as well.  And finding out that Leo DiCaprio is Gatsby is outstanding. 

My high school English self is having a fit over this one.  Holy cow.  We watched the original movie in school, but this one looks like it could blow my mind.  We even had a Gatsby party in class.  Proof:

The only way I ever found that picture was by going to my old Webshots profile.  Did anyone else have one of these that the added to their Buddy Profile on AIM? Ohhhh my that was forever ago.  Here’s my profile if you want to look…

Anything you’re looking forward to?! I just can’t wait to be done!
