Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Happy Super Bowl Sunday ladies!
Bah…who am I kidding, I don’t give a fig about the Super Bowl.Isn’t that terrible.Maybe if I had a boy I would care but I don’t so there we are.
Man, I don’t think I’ve ever been as tired as I have been the last few days.  Seriously my last full on day off was January 22.I’ve had nonstop training the last week and it goes straight through this week.Then I finally have a day off this Friday! (Saturday and Sunday too! WooHoo).
Let me tell you about the last few days.
So the last program I learned was another Physics program called Energy and Waves.We talk about sound and light energy and their respective modes of transit. (IE. Waves).Now I know I’ve said this before but it bear repeating….I HATE SCIENCE.There is a reason I majored in History and English.My brain does not, in any way, shape or form think scientifically!
And for some reason the portion of the program where we talk about light energy and waves, totally and completely kicked my booty!It was TERRIBLE!For the life of me, I could not explain to my group how the electromagnetic spectrum and artificial UV light worked.I got so frustrated, then flustered and finally embarrassed that I bursted into tears, in front of my trainer and in the middle of the Magic Kingdom park.Then I cried on the way home, then to my roommate and finally to my Dad.Luckily the latter two made me feel 100% better and we had sushi to make me feel even better.I did that portion of the program for Suzanne and it finally clicked because I connected the science to a story.And WA-LA it clicked.Nn the last day of training, I ROCKED IT! 🙂
So then, I immediately started training for the third and final program I will be learning, Millennium Cultures.Which is by far my favorite!It’s my in my comfort zone and best part?NO SCIENCE! Plus, the program is done at EPCOT so I get to see my Guest Relations family all the time.Big perk there.
Ok enough work talk. Sorry this is a wordy post, but every once and a while you need a wordy post.
So, the last thing I want to share with you all on this fine Saturday is another movie review.
I can now check another movie off my “Movies to See List”.And after seeing this movie I can now say I’ve seen 5 of the 10 Best Picture nominated films at this years Oscars.
Alrighty yesterday I saw:

This movie is one of the biggest tear jerkers I’ve seen in a long time.I think I cried every three scenes or so.I can completely see why it was nominated for Best Picture.The movie follows Oscar, as he searches for the lock that fits he finds in his deceased fathers closet one year after his death in the World Trade Centers on 9/11.
The movie will make you laugh (well it’ll make you chuckle between sniffles), it will make you cry (obviously), it will make you take a look at your relationships with the people in your lives and what those relationships mean, and it will even make you think of all the people you don’t know in the world.
The film really shows you how even after 10 years, 9/11 is still a very tender subject to people. I know this because I don’t think there was a dry eye in my theatre.
So overall I give this movie 5 stars.
Thomas Horn (the boy who plays Oskar) totally and completely carries and steals the entire movie.  He is fantastic.  Then again so is Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock, but that is not surprising at all I’m sure.
Go see it. You won’t regret it! Oh and bring some Kleenex. You’ll need it.
Hope you all had a great weekend!

  1. Are you surprised that I didn't like that movie?? hahah. I didn't cry once. My mom says I have a heart of stone but I just didn't feel any connection to the characters. I need help. LOL.


  2. Thanks for the movie review! I am anxious to see this movie. I read the book and LOVED it but then the movie didn't get that great of review, so I have been kind of hesitant to see it. Your post re motivates me, though, to go see it! You should read the book if you haven't already. It is beautiful.Loving your blog… new follower 🙂
