Is everything about us as new as we like to pretend it is after new years? Aren’t we all just the same with a different covering on to hide our true selves? Or are we becoming who we are meant to be? Who knows? What I believe is that this whole resolution thing is bs. Making us feel like we need to change something about ourselves which we most likely do but it’s to the point where we feel like a failure in pur own skin if we don’t change. That’s a load of crap if you ask me.
The chilling effect of the Sony Pictures hack and terrorist threats against The Interview are reverberating. New Regency has scrapped another project that was to be set in North Korea. The untitled thriller, set up in October, was being developed by director Gore Verbinski as a star vehicle for Foxcatcher star Steve Carell.

The location won’t be transplanted. Fox declined to distribute it, per a spokesman.

I have been gone for quite sometime and I really miss you guys. I could make an excuse that I had to be the maid of honor in a wedding. Is that a good excuse? Well either way I’m going to use it. If you were wondering, the wedding was beautiful. My mom got married and I was her maid of honor. It was a great honor and I hope this marriage is a happy one for her. Third time is a charm right. Yup, this is her third marriage but it feels like it’s going be a good one and she’ll be happy.
I have had an actual good week. It’s already been pretty good and tomorrow I get to go to a waterpark with my boyfriend and his family. This will be the first time I meet them and I’m really excited. I hope they like me. But anyways, this blog post wasn’t to talk about my boyfriend, surprise surprise. This blog post is to say that I’m having a good week so far and I hope you guys are too.
