Letter from the future?

For my one of my classes we have to pretend it's 2023 and write a letter to a friend that we have been out of touch with since 2013 and catch them up on our life.  

By no means a hard assignment but it kinda is. 

What do I want to have done in the next tens years?

I dreamed a dream

Ok, before I go on and talk about how obsessed I've become, I need to say that I had never seen a production of Les Miserables before.  I'm seeing it in May on stage.  But I really wanted to see the movie too.  And since patience is not a virtue I have, I didn't want to wait until after I saw it on stage. I also didn't know if I should see it first on stage or in the movies.  First world problems, I tell ya!

One of my friends had seen both the play (several times) and the movie.  She said to see the movie.  So I did.  

Holy cow!  How have I never seen Les Miz before??!!

I instantly became obsessed!  

Here's my basic knowledge of Les Miz pre movie watching: 
 I  roughly "knew" the story of Les Miz, so there were no major surprises for me.  Not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing.
I've loved the song "On My Own" since Joey Potter sang it at the beauty pageant.
I've heard most of the famous songs since I listen to a lot of Broadway music on Pandora (I refuse to call them show tunes).  

I really, really like the movie.

Remember, I've never seen the stage production.  

I know everyone is hating on Russell Crowe and his singing skills.  I do agree that his voice was not necessarily the strongest and he may not have been the best choice in that sense.  However, I do feel as though his persona was spot on.  I believed that he would spend his life hunting Jean Valjean.  

But remember I have nothing to compare it to.  

My biggest concern/issue was Amanda Seyfried.  I felt that she didn't really commit to the singing. Yeah, she can sing, but I just think there may have been a better choice. Maybe I just don't like the character of Cosette,  Maybe whenever I see Amanda all I can think about is Karen from Mean Girls.  

Remember, this is the only version I've seen.

So basically I'm now obsessed with Les Miz and have been listening to the music on my newly created Les Miz Pandora station.

I love it when I use my noggin

So tomorrow is my meeting for my new super duper internship. This weekend I went shopping and got some super duper cute clothes; one of which is a dress. And I was all excited to wear it tomorrow. Until I thought about the fact that, because this is a chemical dependency clinic, I have to get a urine screen. Then I thought about how awkward it's going to be hold my dress up while holding a cup while trying to hover.

New plan: cute pants and shirt.

I love it when I actually think things through.

Here's my super cute dress. Another day dear friend, I promise you will be worn

This morning I had a really hard time putting on my watch. It just didn't want to clasp. Finally, I got it on. I checked the time to see how close it was to Whiny's bus time. My watch said 3:00!! What!?!??

Oops, my watch was on upside down.

Happy New Year y'all!!

I am going to be such a copycat!   Ellesees normally does her New Year's resolutions a bit differently than most folks and I am going to copy the sh*t out of her.  She does a different resolution each month but this year she is changin' it up. Feel free to check it out to see what the heck I am talking about. 


This year I am going to try to a year long resolution as well as monthly ones.  My year-long one is going to be the $5 savings plan.  Every time I get a $5 bill, I'm going to put it away (probably in a mug somewhere in my apartment so don't come robbing me!). At the end of the year I'm going to do something fun with the money.  

These are my monthly ones that I have thought of so far.  They are by no means set in stone. 

January - eat breakfast every day
February - no alcohol
March - no fast food
April - no buying coffee out 
May - actually do my hair & makeup at home and not at work
June - keep my house guest-ready clean
July - no clothes shopping
August - 
September - 
October - 
November - 
December - 

Clearly, I couldn't think of 12 things.  So please feel free to suggest things for me.
