one thing thursday

I'm skipping my Three Things Thursday post and leaving you with one thing and a weekly recap!

1. Memento - I watched this movie yesterday and it was SO good. I had never even heard of it and didn't recognize any of the actors in the film, so I was surprised that it ranked so highly on The Movie List (#27). It's about a guy who suffers from a type of short-term memory loss in which his brain can't form and process new memories. He develops the condition after the rape and murder of his wife. Using only hand-written notes and prison-style tattoos he draws on himself, he puts together the pieces he needs to try and investigate his wife's murder and seek revenge. The film is a psychological thriller and is told in anti-chronologic order from the flash backs and memories that come with his tattoos and notes. If you're into suspense, thrillers and movies that mess with your mind and really make you think, than I highly recommend this film because it was incredible! This was definitely one of those movies that make me so glad I put The Movie List on my 25 List.


in one word or phrasejust believe
I’m dreaming of you- Chicago ROADTRIP!

song on repeat – "(If you're wondering if I want you to) I want you to" - Weezer
gotta write it down- Just do it. 

lesson learned- Take more calcium!
picture to frame - This is an old picture of me the last time I was in London and I just love it. I had a lot going on in my life when it was taken and it's a reminder of how far I've come and where I am today. 

highlight of the week- Finally moving into my apartment!
