Playing: Up In the Air-30 Seconds to Mars
Reading: Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan (Pretty racist, but it's for school.)Sorry for not blogging recently. Nothing of interest has been going on in my life, since I've been preoccupied with studying for APUSH, physics, and French. The APUSH test is this Wednesday and my physics final is this Monday, so hopefully after that I'll have more free time to do fun things. Last weekend, I picked up a few things I've been wanting after lunch at Tandoori Indian Cuisine. Most of the food was pretty good and the service was friendly, so I'll be back again.
blazer looks rather angular on me and I like that. Both are from Zara and I really like Zara sweaters now. I should just buy one in each color.
purse at Zara. It would have been nice to have one without color, but I don't mind the blue. It's really small, so I'm surprised that it can fit my phone and my camera. The only problem I have with clear purses is that everything inside must look perfectly organized otherwise it drives me crazy. This clear envelope is the perfect day clutch too and would make a good addition to my purse collection.
Slightly unrelated but still important, The Great Gatsby was beautiful. Muiccia Prada and Brooks Brothers did a great job with all the costumes. The movie was just what I expected from Baz Luhrmann-over the top and slightly cheesy. Other than the fact that the rap music was inappropriate for the time period, I thought the film captured the glamor and wonder that Jay Gatsby offers perfectly. However, I do understand why critics have not been liking it. Luhrmann films are just one of those things, where you either love it or hate it and I am one of those people that love all of his theatrics. (Edit-Someone mentioned that the movie failed to get you emotionally attached to the characters, which is true. In the book, I found Gatsby's life to be tragic and I hated Daisy intensely, while in the movie, most of my feelings for the characters were shaped by what I had read rather than by the movie itself.)
The title is a quote from The Great Gatsby and after reading the book four times, I'm getting really good at quoting it.
