It's Raining on My Face

If you know me, you'll know that I am not an overly emotional person.  Meaning, I don't really cry or get upset over much.

However.

I finally saw A Better Life.  I'm sure glad I watched it at home, cause I pretty much cried through the whole thing.  Tug at my heart strings.  I still wonder what happened to the teenage boy I tutored in DC.  He left school to work and support his family.  I still think about the nice man I saw get arrested one morning at Food City in Phoenix.  What happened to his family?

Ah, what to do....



The few other movies that have made me cry:

1) Garden State - not because of the movie, but an emotional breakdown due to surrounding circumstances that had been building for days.  One can only be even-keeled in a crisis for so long.  

2) The Kite Runner - I had read the book, knew everything that was going to happen, sobbed like a baby through the whole movie.  Thankfully watched it alone in my grandma's basement.

3) The Road - Once again, had read the book.  Saw it over Thanksgiving break with a guy I had just started dating.  Cried in every scene with the man and the boy.  I'm sure my date thought I was a total weirdo.

want to watch this! also i haven't watched the kite runner yet. i remember feeling emotionally depressed after reading the book, but...it could be time! i'll follow it up with a couple hours of sitting in the sunshine and communing with the Vitamin D happiness gods.

Last November, with a Little Trip to Austin

Stuff from last November! At work we made little bandanas for pets in shelters. I guess when they have a colorful thing around their neck ...
