I saw a TERRIBLE movie today. It was Post Grad
with Alexis Bledel. I was hoping it would be like a lame light-hearted fun sort of movie, but it was just awful
. Even my mom hated it and she never hates any movies. As long as she's entertained, she's good, but this had absolutely no redeeming qualities. It was basically girl graduates college, girl doesn't get job, girl's life starts to fall apart, girl ignores male bff who's in love with her, male bff leaves for columbia, girl gets dream job, girl leaves dream job to follow boy (who she had no romantic interest in before) to New York where she has no job, apartment, or plan. So, basically, it's a much better idea to follow a boy who you don't feel chemistry with but is comfortable allllll the way across the country, rather than working hard and climbing your way up the corporate ladder to a job you've always dreamed of. Because love (that you're settling for) > dream career. Because girls can't have high powered careers, silly. And the girl who gets the job before her and was valedictorian and stuff? Bitchy, stuck up, and gets fired. Because that's what ambition gets you. Urrrrrrrg. Why can't movies about women and careers/education all be like Legally Blonde? Where she works hard, puts men to the side, and accomplishes something for herself
? But I guess that's setting too high of standards for Hollywood. Silly me.
What looks like a much better movie is Drew Barrymore's Whip It
. Ellen Page, Alia Shawkat, and it's directed by Drew Barrymore? Sounds good to me.
In other, unrelated news: two really cute Loli things!Baby's Vampire Requiem
. Omg, in lavenderrrrr. It doesn't go with my wardrobe, but it's just so pretty!AP Hello Kitty Collab
! I don't love
it, so I'm not going to buy it, but it's a lot better than Baby's.
I also can't decide if I like the Friend Usakumya Lillian
skirt. I like the yellow and the white, but is it too little kid-ish? I struggle sometimes with the fine line between "child-like" and "child-ish". What do y'all think?
