"i'm longing with everything i am to tell you my story...to write my words on your heart, just to watch the ink seep into the crevices. i promise it won't hurt--not if you just simply listen."

i am a Christian, & i live my life to honor God as best as i can.
i randomly burst out in song (when the time is appropriate) & i like to sing in the shower (as loud as possible).
i love to write. mostly short stories & poetry, though someday hopefully i’ll finish a novel. i’m also a procrastinator.
i adore owls & foxes.
i want a pet boa constrictor...so i can name him Hugs
i love studying dreams & psychology.
i have an obsession with music (the good stuff).
i paint pictures & draw for fun sometimes.
i like the color grey because in a way it describes who i am—somewhere in between light & dark.
movies are amazing expressions of art, & I’d love to help make them someday (whether that is screenwriting, cinematography, or directing).
no matter how many times i watch a sunset/sunrise i still think they are one of the most beautiful things i have ever seen.
i’m an amateur photographer & i have an unhealthy obsession with taking pictures.
i want to be a world traveler.
i’m all for being outdoors—hiking, biking, canoeing etc. but i also love just chilling inside with a good book.
after reading Anne Frank’s Diary at age 12, i was inspired to keep a journal of my own, & i’ve been writing ever since.
i love Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll & The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
my favorite book is Unwind by Neal Shusterman.
sushi is my all time favorite food.
i eat my Pop Tarts upside down so my tongue tastes the good sugary part first.
Interests
  • Mood: Adoration
  • Listening to: The Sickness Unto Death--Typhoon

on a roller coaster that only goes up..

so there's this book that i read a couple years ago. a very beautiful book. like nothing i had ever read before.
it was about the side effects of dying.
but it was also about the side effects of living.
i'm sure you've all heard of it by now thanks to the recent film's success.

it's called The Fault in Our Stars.

when i first heard that one of my favorite books was going to become a movie. honestly, i panicked.

it seems to be the trend now in Hollywood to make Young Adult fiction novels into movies. (i.e. The Fault in Our Stars, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Spectacular Now, The Mortal Instruments, etc.)

i named some of the better (or tolerable) adaptions—the best probably being The Fault in Our Stars, Divergent, The Spectacular Now & Perks of Being a Wallflower. but honestly, in my humble opinion, most of the one's that have come out in recent years have been inexcusably terrible. (i am looking forward to seeing what they do with The Maze Runner & The Giver though). 

back to the reason for this posti continued to do a little research on The Fault in Our Stars & found that it was to be directed by Josh Boone (an upcoming independent film director responsible for writing & directing the beautiful movie Stuck in Love that came out in 2012). i breathed a little easier hearing that news, but i still was very uneasy about the whole thing.

& then I figured out that the author of the book John Green was hanging out on the set of the movie almost the entire time they were shooting & I got a little bit more comfortable with the idea.

our stars

as the months went by, my unease eventually turned into anticipation as the cast was announced:

Shailene Woodley as Hazel Grace Lancaster, Ansel Elgort as Augustus Waters, & Nat Wolff as Isaac.

Shailene Woodley

i didn't know much about Shailene, except that she proved her acting abilities in Alexander Payne's The Descendants alongside George Clooney in 2011. & that she was going to be in a couple other upcoming YA movies based on books that i'd read (Divergent & The Spectacular Now). Shailene's not new to acting, she's starred & guest starred in t.v. shows over the years. she's a bit of an interesting person. she does not own a cell phone, makes her own medicines, toothpaste, lotions, etc., & she gives hugs to just about every one she comes in contact with. this girl is inspiring.

Ansel Elgort

i had only ever seen Ansel in the Stephen King's Carrie reboot in 2013 (& heard he was also going to be in Divergent as Shailene's brother—not that that matters at all because acting is acting & i'm tired of people making a big deal out of the fact that they play brother & sister in one movie & lovers in another). anyway, i was curious about this Ansel fellow, & in my digging found he had in fact sang on Broadway, (he can dance & sing) & he spends his free time painting miniature scenes on pebble-sized rocks. & i decided right then & there that i liked him.

Nat Wolff

& then there's Nat Wolff. remember the Nickelodeon show the Naked Brothers Band? i saw him in Peace, Love & Misunderstanding (2011), not the greatest flick, but he did a good job in his role. i really loved his performance in Stuck in Love, but i hadn't really seen him in any other movies. i am excited to see that he is cast as Quentin Jacobsen in John Green's next book to get the movie treatment—Paper Towns (2015). (& this is a bit off topic, but they haven't cast any of the other characters for that film yet or who is directing it, but i am interested to know who they get to play Margo Roth Spiegelman). anyway, there's a lot to love about Nat too. for one, he is like the ultimate Beatles fan, he obviously can sing, & for goodness sakes people he is going to be Quentin in Paper Towns! i'm also looking forward to seeing James Franco's Palo Alto.

my thoughts are stars i cannot fathom into constellations..

so back to the topic at hand, on June 6, 2014 at 7:00pm. i saw The Fault In Our Stars. & i was blown away. i knew it would be good. i anticipated it's goodness from nearly the beginning, but i never ever in a million years expected it to be that good. it was beautiful. it made me laugh out loud, weep uncontrollably, & i was literally smiling the entire time i was in the theater (even through my tears) because i was ecstatic to be there watching the characters i had fallen in love with in John Green's novel come to life before my eyes. i'm not particularly fond of being in a theater packed to the max with mostly teenage girls (who i like to give the benefit of the doubt & say that they had read the book beforehand—but this is surely uncertain). i am though, very fond of movies that make me feel so much love for the characters that i start believing their stories are real. even just thinking about the beautiful masterpiece that is The Fault in Our stars causes my heart to spill over with so many conflicting emotions.

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.” ~ John Green (TFIOS)
if you have not read the book, or seen the movie. i would encourage you to do so. i may be a little bit peeved at you if you have seen the movie, but not read the book...but that seems to be a lot of people's choice nowadays. (which makes me utterly sad & disappointed mind you).
but please, please, please just experience The Fault in Our Stars. & i know there may be those of you that hate jumping on the bandwagon (i'm kind of one of those people too), but honestly it is worth all the attention it is getting & deserving of as many fans as possible.

thank you for reading, i love you all
