dear john

guilty pleasure, nicholas sparks

guilty pleasure gone bad, watching dear john… i bought the book from amazon at a steal of a deal a sweet $4 dollars, hoped to read said guilty pleasure before seeing potentially wonderful gushy film.  only redeeming quality of this film was starring at channing tatum.  i so badly wanted to be taken away into a sweeping romance, but was left with two feet firmly planted on the ground.  the notebook, still a keeper, dear john– i guess i’ll now have to read the book and see if this story can be redeemed.

Opps She Did it Again

Posted in Uncategorized by andrea on January 19, 2010

Oh, Oprah you’ve done it again taking the world by storm with a new campaign— No it’s not pennies for dreams, electing Barack Obama, or cleaning out a closet.

It’s texting while driving, and I think she’s onto something, something I needed to hear.

Like you, I too have texted while driving.

Here are some facts, from Car & Driver magazine and the University of Utah:

If you talk while driving your 4x more likely to get into an accident (that’s talking with or without a  bluetooth) If you text and drive you’re 8x more likely to get into an accident. Let’s put these sobering statistics in perspective a drunk driver is 4x more likely to get into an accident which means this…texting at 8x is worse than a drunk driver….eeeee

The scary thing is this— we all think we’re amazing drivers, come on, you do.  that multi-tasking is an art that we’ve or I’ve perfected, when really in the case of driving doing less is more.

So, thanks Oprah, I may have added another resolution to my list. and yes, you just read a blog about Oprah- look how broad your horizons are becoming! (close to a middle aged house wife!)

Cheers to 2010

Posted in Uncategorized by andrea on January 18, 2010

I hereby commit to be a better blogger and practice what I preach.

oh, what on earth will i write, i haven’t the faintest idea. should be thrilling- cough cough.

fasten your seat belt and put you chair in its upright position. actually getting the puke bag may be more appropriate?

just setting the bar real low. attainable goals my friends attainable goals.

hummm

Posted in Uncategorized by andrea on January 18, 2010

my mind has been running on overdrive, but also painfully slow. i’m sitting waiting for something, but also needing and wanting to step out into something new. someone asked me, what i wanted for myself, i decided two things- there are things I can control…and there are things i wait for.

so i’m trying to figure this all out, a  battle between waiting, and running. wondering what is next, yet seriously wanting “shalom” an all encompassing peace to surround any step i take. where is the peace in risk? questions swirl and i want to have answers but i don’t, i want to have full control, but i can’t. welcome to 2010 perhaps not as emotionally volatile as 2009, but definitely is a different beast. where is the manual to figure out life? please don’t tell me it’s the bible.

christmas

Posted in Uncategorized by andrea on December 17, 2009

i’m lacking christmas cheer, i’m not sure if it’s part of growing up, maybe it’s that my tree is a little under 2 feet tall and is fake. all i know is that i need to find my christmas sparkle, i need to get it back.

looking for it, let me know if you find it for me.

blog…oh yeah I still have one

Posted in Uncategorized by andrea on October 12, 2009

So, yes I still have a blog and after much soul searching (well about 30sec) I thought I was very overdue for a new post.

Life is in a turbulent holding pattern. I’m ready for change, but I don’t see anything changing around the corner. There is much in my head and on my heart, but I’m unsure what to do with it all and where to turn and what to change…So I sit in turbulance- seatbelt still fastened and wait for this to pass.

Laura Marling- New Romantic 

 

The hauntingly simple folksy voice of Laura Marling coupled with the clean simplicity of the video make for a moving combination of shadows and silhouettes; that are both playful and true.
