I found Silver Linings Playbook was recently put up on Netflix and I was glad cause I’ve never seen it. Actually I had been so bitter at Jennifer Lawerence beating out Quvenzhane I basically went on strike vowing to not watch that movie but now I have and I’m glad. Silver Linings Playbook was fantastic. I loved how the main characters had mental illnesses but they were still written as normal people who at times made more sense than you did. I also connected deeply with Tiffany’s character especially in that diner scene. I got goosebumps when she opened up to Pat yet in a way he used her secrets against her to make him feel better about his ‘craziness’ I’ve been Tiffany at points in my life and I felt for her. My heart almost broke at the end because he’d been so obsessed with getting Nicky, his ex-wife back that he’d be blinded by what blessing was infront of him being Tiffany. They are both were scarred people but not ruined. They found hope in each other and it gives audiences hope that although they’ve been hurt and abandoned they are not broken and can learn to love and trust again.
Think of all the times you have felt broken. And how many times you couldn’t imagine the day you would feel better. But you finally did. Not just once. But a few times, in fact.
Now write about it in my inbox to remind me of the same.
My bff of almost 15 years…the girl who is supposed to be the Maid of Honor of my supposed future wedding…and me, at hers…is currently 5 months pregnant.
Idk why it is just now hitting me.
Are we really at that age?? Can time slow down???
But I mean…she is 25, in a longterm relationship, and has her BA and 2 Master degrees.
Maybe it is about that time.
