eve of more than a new year.

Well, all my stuff is moved out of Lexington, and bright and early on January 1st, I will be driving to New Orleans. The past few weeks have been what can only be called an emotional roller coaster, as I battle times where fear overtakes me & anxiety cripples me, and times where I am okay with the new adventure I’m about to embark on. I try to remember the restlessness I’ve felt in Lexington, and the affirmation the Lord has given me that moving to NOLA is being obedient. I try not to dwell on the doubt Satan has been feeding me, as well as the lies of infinite “what if” situations, and my tendency to think too far down the road.

I do believe God will take care of me. I wholeheartedly have faith in that. Where I’m still coming around is that I think I know how I want Him to take care of me. I mostly don’t want Him to take care of me by replacing my current friends with new ones.

If you’re the praying kind and would like some specifics…
• Pray the anxiety problems I’m having will ease (problems eating & sleeping, etc.)
• Pray that I will stay present. And as Joe Joe says to me, “Live where I’m at.”
• Pray that no matter what, I will go to God for strength, comfort, and peace.

2010 movies.

December 21, 2010 Leave a comment

Here are some great movies I saw this year, and ones I still want to see. Please don’t judge me, I don’t get to the movie theater that often. 🙂

Inception. Quickly climbing the charts as one of my favorite movies of all time. As an aspiring filmmaker, it had the big three: amazing intricate plot, fantastical & realistic effects, and superb characters.
Harry Potter & The Deathly Hollows, Part 1. I grew up with it, and they keep getting better. I can’t wait for the final installment!
The Town. I know most people dislike Ben Affleck movies, but I never have (Paycheck, anyone?) and this awesome crime drama did not disappoint.
Shutter Island. Leonardo Dicaprio is off my “I know you’re a good actor, but I don’t like you list,” with this amazing thriller. Even better the second time around.
Robin Hood. Ridley Scott has yet to disappoint me.
Eclipse (the 3rd in the Twilight saga). Don’t judge me.

Here’s what I want to see:

The Social Network. Yeah, the trailers were awesome, but I didn’t think they could pull off a movie about Facebook well. But apparently they did.
The Fighter. This will happen soon.
True Grit. This will also happen soon. My dad is very excited.
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. I’m usually not big on graphic novels turned movie, or Michael Cera, but I really wanna try this out.

Also, for an extra of my two cents, I didn’t like these movies this year:

Toy Story 3
Due Date
