The Amazing Spider-Man, good or just another nightmare to my fellow Arachnophobians?

Hello everybody, me again.

Now I want to see a show of hands, how many of you celebrated your 4th of July with fireworks of some kind? (If you really just raised your hand, you need mental help.) I’m guessing quite a few of you did, I on the other hand, did not. Having a big fear of fireworks make 4th of July, New Years Eve, and pretty much the ending of any big sports game, a living hell for me. So while the rest of you sat outside and enjoyed your loud bangs of fire, I was at the movie theater watching one of my other fears come to life on the big screen.

The Amazing Spider-Man looked promising when I saw the previews, but I was skeptical. Hollywood has already produced 3 different movies about a spider superhero that I generally loved. I thought it was to soon for them to use that theme for another movie. Boy was I partially wrong.

I will give no spoilers of the movie, but let me just say, it was great. The story was good and balanced with plenty of action, humor, love, and a feeling of sadness. I was very impressed and came out of the movie wanting to see it again. Yes it was a little confusing and frustrating that they were starting all over again with a new movie, using an already known story,  with different actors, and new details. But let me go out on a limb here and say, I liked this new Spider-Man better than the last three. It will be interesting to see if they make a sequel later on and if this will turn into another trilogy. 

I give it two thumbs up and it was totally worth the $10 spent.

Until next time, Abby.

 

 

Seasonal Affective Disorder, Why Summer Makes Me Sad.

Hi everybody, Abby here.

For those of you who do not know, Seasonal Affective Disorder is a type of depression. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov defines this depression as “A kind of depression that occurs at a certain time of the year, usually in the winter.”  Now, why on earth am I talking about this now, in July when its hotter than Channing Tatum? Because I hate summer. I hate all the time off of school, the excessive heat, time away from my friends at school, all the ruggrats running around, and the excessive heat.  As the temperature begins to crawl into the triple digits, my smile slowly turns into a scowl.Why do people enjoy this time of year? Somebody please tell me, because I’m coming up with nothing. As I write my pro/con list for summer to try and sway my believes, I’m running out of room for my cons and the only pros I have is flip flops.

First off, this heat. You can’t do anything outside unless you want to look like you just got out of the pool and smell like you’ve never seen a shower. Just in the two minute walk to my car from the movie theater today, I was soaked. In the 15 minutes I was outside today, my makeup had melted off, and my Diet Coke was lukewarm. Yuck.

Second, the styles of clothing. I am a big fashion lover, I love clothes, shoes, scarves, and jewelry. But, in this weather, the only clothes I can wear is a bathing suit, tank tops, and shorts. I want to wear my adorable Burberry scarf, ugg boots, cute sweaters, and jeans!

Third, I miss school. Yes, I just said that. Having just finished my freshman year in college, I got to enjoy living in the dorms away from my parents and the sweet, sweet freedom that came from that, And now here I am, back under their roof, missing my friends who live 2 hours away and watching We Bought a Zoo for family movie night. 

Now, Summer does have a few nice attributes. I love wearing flip flops more than most people, and going to the Drive-In is the definition of fun in my book, going to outdoor concerts at night is something I never pass up, and Sonic milkshakes are always better when my teeth are not chattering. But, my love will always belong to winter. Christmas time, fresh snow, heavy coats, warm coffee, boots and scarves, Black Friday Shopping, and sitting next to an open fire. Now all of that, will turn my scowl into a smile.

Stay Happy and cool Everybody!

Until Next Time, Abby.
