"keep away from the freaks on the fringe"

I was taking a leisure scroll through Instagram (as I tend to do when I'm pretending to work on very important law school applications due in the very near future) and I came across an interesting shot from my dear friend Emily Osment.

Perhaps you know her as Lily (the best friend) from Hannah Montana. Well color me excited when I found out that she was going to be coming out with a new show soon. Cleaners. And she plays a hit woman. That's a nice change from Disney Channel darling. 

Of course, you should know I have a very strong love when it comes to my Disney friends, so you know I had to investigate this show. I was surprised to learn that the show was already out and was a quite a few episodes into the storyline. About to start season two, in fact. I guess I'm not doing such a good job of keeping tabs on my Disney friends.  Nevertheless, I watched the first episode without knowing anything about the show. Nothing.

Oh come on, you know I loved it. Honestly, it wasn't bad. It was very Quentin Tarantino in terms of style. And I love a good Tarantino film. Basically the show is about two highly trained female contract killers, one of them being Emily. Of course it was a far cry from Disney, but still managed to not be another of those "Oh great, she's trying to shake her 'Disney' image" shows. I applaud her, and I look forward to watching another episode soon. Perhaps after I finish up with these very important law school applications due in the very near future…...

"i'll say a thousand words or more"

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful transition into the new year. I certainly did. Nothing too special, I went to the crossover service at my church, then went to a friend's house for some dancing. It wasn't exactly a grand rocking new year's eve, but I enjoyed myself.

Of course it's a new year and its pretty much obligatory for everyone to come up with some "new year new me" goal and such. So who am I to deny myself such a tradition? I do, however, have a track record of failing at every and all new year resolutions I make, so, I will make this as easy on myself as possible. This year I only have one resolution:

I will write at least one blog post a month.

There! Simple, easy, direct. Nothing too difficult about that, right? I think I should be able to manage that. I just really want to get back into blogging regularly this year. I love having a record of my experiences and how I felt about them. I don't want an entire year to go by and I have no idea what I even did. This blog is pretty much a roadmap of my life. It showcases everything I've done (or at least the important parts that I feel like sharing) and reminds me what more I have to look forward to.

So that's my plan. Be a better writer. Be a more consistent writer. Be a true blogger. Wish me luck!

Happy New Year everyone!
