a movie and other random stuff
Over the long weekend Aaron and I watched Beasts of the Southern Wild. It was absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking. It's one of the best movies I've seen in a long while. I noticed some connections to Their Eyes Were Watching God, which I'll be teaching later this semester, and am hoping I can find a way to tie in the movie to my unit. You have to go see this movie. Hushpuppy will inspire you.
In other news, I've got a lot to look forward to in the next couple of months, including an upcoming visit from Michelle, my college bestie. School is keeping me busy, as always, but I love what I do so I cannot complain. I'm reading another graphic novel- this one is called, Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic. It's depressing. I am pretty sure I got a concussion on Sunday while snowboarding, which happened after I became sick on the mountain. Time to get a helmet. We had nice weather last week, which got me excited for summer-- bike rides, road trips, and the ocean. Happy Friday.
