Glasses Rock

I know I have mentioned before I wear glasses, but I saw this on Cosmic and knew I had to email it, post it on facebook, and blog about it!
I used to be super self conscious about my glasses. I was made fun of pretty severely in grade school, and I never wore them in high school. In college and now in my adult life I DO NOT CARE. I love my glasses, I wear them everyday. I see so much better than with my contacts, so why should I sacrifice my vision, comfort, and sanity? I still wear my contacts to the bar, special events, first dates, etc. and I am still not 100% comfortable with guys seeing them (still self conscious about being cute in glasses). But I am working on that attitude above.

Hurray for Movies!

Last night was the kick off of my cities Lawn Chair Film Festival. The movie was whip it, which I had never heard of but is an ASS KICKIN flick about roller derby. I totally want to be a roller derby girl now. Wish I was a better skater...
WHIP IT, the directorial debut of Drew Barrymore, stars Ellen Page (Juno) as Bliss, a rebellious Texas teen who throws in her small town beauty pageant crown for the rowdy world of roller derby. Marcia Gay Harden plays Bliss’ disapproving mother, while Kristen Wiig and Juliette Lewis play roller-derby stars. Filmed in Michigan.
Here are some pics, the trailer is at the bottom.

Also these are some other films playing this summer at the festival I am excited for, FANTASTIC MR. FOX & 500 DAYS OF SUMMER

Things I do not like

It cannot be all fun and games all the time. I try and pretend it can be, but then sometimes things come in multiples of three OR MORE and they are things that are more or less not so fun.

1) Having mosquito bites on the tops of my feet. Seriously the mosquitoes had to pick the most annoying area to bite multiple times.

2) Pretty Little Liars not being posted online after it aired on ABC Family. I think I should be uploaded within three hours.

3) Missing above show to go to a poetry reading that was a) held at a tiny coffee shop b) so packed I had to sit outside c) it was cold outside.

4) My phone will not longer send texts to facebook. It will receive, it will upload photos. But I cannot text back :(

5) Facebook at home will not load correctly, photos are being left out on profiles and the wall/news feed.

I am on a quest, for an amazing lip balm. I would prefer handmade if possible so send me some suggestions. I have tried a handful on etsy with some good and bad results. These two below are great. Some I tried were like tinted, left yellow on my skin, tasted like soap.

BLSoaps, she has an amazing lip tint that is well AMAZING. Plus her flavors are wonderful, quite the selection!
