Hey everyone! I hope everyone has been having a good week so far; and if you haven’t had that luxury, well then hey, at least tomorrow’s friday! So yesterday I posted about earth day but didn’t post my weekly scene (and I know how my awesome scenes are THE highlight of your week :)….. yea I know, your netflix binge is probably better) Anyways, here is the scene I have chosen for this week. It’s one that’s another indie favorite of mine- I’d have to put it up there with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It’s “Donnie Darko” and features a demonic looking rabbit, teenage Jake Gyllenhaal, a plot that has more than just a twist, and a danceteam called sparklemotion. This film has seriously the most mindblowing and strange story but it’s also one of the most creative ones. I can’t really explain what it’s about without giving too much away- trust me, if you decided to see it, the best way is to start without knowing anything too detailed. This scene that I am showing is one of my favorites, because of the pervasively creepy atmosphere and the way the actors express so much emotion by saying so little. For those of you who have never seen it, you will be confused as to what it all means- a rabbit, a movie theatre and a portal, but just watch it for what it is at the moment and appreciate how deliciously creepy it is.

I'm from Florida, a junior at the University of Central Florida. Currently, I'm a political science-IR major. I'm an avid traveler and explorer of all things worth exploring. Hoarder of books and movies, and caretaker to my beloved camera and piano. I think conformity and math are terrible, but vegetarianism and nature conservation are awesome. Traveling is also a huge passion of mine. I thank my parents for that, as they took my two sisters and I around the world from the time we were in diapers; now I'll forever have the travel bug. I have a variety of interests from photography to theatre to the great outdoors. Growing up, I always felt an urge to get out in the world, explore and be actively involved in efforts dedicated to making changes in the world, impacting something or someone in a inspirational and positive way. It's important to notice what is happening in the world, to fight for what is good and what is right. As someone who is diagnosed with clinical depression and ADHD, I am an advocate for mental health education and thus one of the cornerstones of this blog is writing to inspire others;to say, whether it's through a review or a poem, that the human experience is a hard one but worthwhile. This blog covers entertainment, travel, current events and personal pieces as well. Thanks for stopping by! :)
