January is a thoroughly miserable month. I, like most of the UK, am quite irritated and grumpy (workload, hatred of the girls in my school, and general "what's the point" ennui). I hope things picks up soon.

Life is worth living though. I suppose. Better just remind myself of that:-
Cute anime.

Cute anime.

wo ai ni.

movies are life. harry potter is life. cartoons are life. starbucks is life.

I thought to myself "I need to cheer up." So what song did I put on? Gloomy Sunday bu Billie Holiday a.k.a. the Hungarian Suicide Song! I haven't quite got the hang of this me time hehe. But I did watch Laputa: Castle in the Sky with my sister earlier which was fun. Hope you get through everything Emma and good luck with school and such.

Juno! I really, really loved Prudhomme's work.

I'm listening to Abba now whilst attempting to do the homework. Did not realise that Gimme Gimme Gimme had been sampled by Madonna!

The prospect of watching Juno and No Country for Old Men is all that's keeping me going at the moment tbh.

hi, emma!

i think i'll become a frequent reader of your blog as it's fun, very(!) informative (for me at least, i'm no movie buff as you know. :P) and looks pretty too.

january is always a lousy month. for some reason, i find it really hard to cope with the beginning of a new year. anyway, we've only got 4 months left of misery in school and then.. FREEDOM!

btw, you made me want to read all the potter books again (probably for about a 10th time. :P)

see you tomorrow!

anahita said... haaappy!!! :) at least you've got an awesome blog which inspires the multitudes (

I've put up the BAFTA nominations and my own preferences on my blog...tell me what you think.

And I love the Harry Potter picture. Where do you get all those " love" pics from?? xxx

January's a bad month for me too. I'm still a little unwell and have weird spots on my faceas a result of that. I've been a little grumpy of late too.

My weekend is spolit due to the fact I have two lectures on Saturday from 9-4. Only thing to keep me sane: music and Sudoku puzzles =)

Hope you have a good weekend, darling.
