Things I love Thursday (again!)

Perfume, A story of a murderer.
(imdb link)
One of the best movies I have seen in a little while. I fall in love with most visually stunning movies, even if the plot is lacking. (aka mirrormask) But this movie had everything. It was a little on the dark side (well, possibly more then a little). But to be perfectly honest, those type of movies are my favorite. Some parts reminded me of an adult version of series of unfortunate events.
My new summer college courses
I go to school year round, and for the summer I chose to take two psychology courses. The first will be developmental psychology and the second is human sexuality. I love to learn about why people and act the way they do. I gain so much insight in these sorts of classes.
Special mentions

Things I love thursday

Planning my upcoming trip to New Orleans.

My mom (who lives across the country) and I were sick of visiting each other in our own states (her California, me Maine) so we decided to meet somewheres in the US neither of us have been. After much consideration on my part I chose New Orleans because in late April / early May (during my birthday) a huge jazz/blues music festival will be taking place. Along with that we plan on taking a bloody Mary voodoo tour, eating the spiciest food we can find, and attending a few burlesque shows. I will post more about my plans as I make them.

Geek Chic (part one)

You may or or may not know by now, that I am a MAJOR geek. And Not too long ago Gala Darling (my all time favorite blogger) wrote a fabulous article about dressing “Geek Chic” which inspired me to write more about the look and lifestyle of a young, stylish, geeky female.
Lets start with accessories.
Ipod/Mp3 player
(every geek I’ve come across has been into various types of music)
(Do I really have to give an explanation)
Post-it notes
(I love how they come in so many shapes, colors, and sizes now!)
A Journal
(A place to keep your favorite literary quotes, thoughts, and dreams)
A variety of pens
(for writing in journal and love notes)
Anything hello kitty
(Not everyone loves her but I know I do)
(great way to show off your interests and decorate a plain purse)
Really Cute Charactors
( Think Hello Kitty, Julius, or anything Kawaii)
(I will do a post on kawaii characters later on)
Video Games!
(my boyfriend just got me the pink DS and I absolutely love it!)

I’m back! 5 Things you need to see/do/read

1. Watch My Neighbor Toroto if you haven’t already. It is a Studio ghibli film that is wonderful to those who are not hardcore anime fans. It made me wish I was surrounded by people who believed in spirits.

see also Spirited Away

2. Listen to anything by Yann Tiersen. He is the creator of the Amelie Soundtrack and many other wonderful pieces of music.


(Click above to hear)

3. Start a quote collection.

We have to keep one for the new business class I am taking, It’s my favorite part of class.

4. Gala Darling’s 50 Ways to To Rescue the Worst Day Ever.

Basically required reading.

5. Get more into instrumental music.

Here is an entry in blackciggarette a great livejournal community all about it.


Some other little things to consider.

Buy yourself a new soap in your favorite scent, take pictures of everything you can find of a specific color and make a mosaic, update your inspiration board, go to the library and take out a bunch of nonfiction books on subjects that interest you, buy a really tasty tea, coffee, or cocoa.
