It's amazing the number of Facebook friends I have showing off their Easter baskets. Call me judgmental, but why are juniors and seniors in high school still getting baskets with candy? I can understand candy, but baskets too? With the fake grass? It just seems a little bizarre to me. I suppose if I think back the same thing happened with Halloween too.
Which gets me wondering: why, as a society, do we make such a big deal of what we receive? Why not share what we give to others? Just questions to be answered at one point in my life, I'm sure.
I watched Midnight in Paris for the first time last night. I'll admit, I went in with low expectations and general skepticism for the movie. I think that is why, in part, I ended up enjoying it. I thought the costumes and soundtrack were well done. I especially fell in love with Adriana's wardrobe, secretly wishing the Prom theme was 1920's (like it was originally supposed to be) so I could dress like her. Oh well.
Speaking of Prom, I've decided not to go to mine. It's planned for this Saturday and just too many events are also happening that day. Math Bowl, Relay for Life, an art exhibit I would love to see, etc. Besides, I got asked to babysit for the first time in forever and it's so hard to pass up earning money. A few of my male friends are disappointed, having assured me I would have a good time, (though none would go themselves, so, how could they really) but given the circumstances I feel better not going. If I end up missing out, so be it. I think it's silly to live with regrets.
See you guys on the flip side.
