The Truth of the Matter

The truth of the matter is that I have a lot of thoughts going on right now, so I suppose I'll share them. :)
1. My weekend was superb. On Friday I went to the Titanic Artifact Exhibit, which many of you sounded interested in! It was interesting and I couldn't take pictures inside the exhibit but I was able to take a picture of something I found pretty cool from the experience. I want to go in depth about it because I heard remarkable stories and facts that I want to share so I decided to save that for a whole seperate post instead of cramming it into this one. So, tune in tomorow to hear more about it;) lol. After the exhibit though, me and my family walked around DownTown St.Pete until we found a cute place to eat called Midtown something or other. It had delicious food and an old jukebox inside it.
2. I got to see Finding Neverland(starring Johnny Depp!!!!!!!!! and Kate Winslet). It's about the life of J.M Barrie and honestly, it's one of my favorite movies now. First off, most of the plot was highly accurate and on the ball regarding the life of J.M Barrie(the author of Peter Pan). And J.M Barrie himself is a remarkable person with a remarkable story. If you're interested, I can share with you his life story if you want to hear it? But not only this, but Johnny Depp is amazing and the movie is clever, cute, and well put together. I love it.
3. On Saturday, I FINALLY got to see Perks of Being a Wallflower. It was also highly amazing. The actors/actresses were perfeeeect. And I got to hang out with my friends  Nora and Natalie.We went on an impromptu adventure to the grocery store, picked up ingredients to make homemade ButterBeer and made some and used twigs as wands and pretended to use some of the spells from Harry Potter.(Like Expelliarmus, or Accio, etc.) It was a lovely evening.
4. I watched the Oscars and saw the Les Miserables cast blow it out of the park with their musical number.
5. I saw the Dead Poet's Society and that movie inspires me so much. It's a beautiful movie, you should see it. Now.
6. I have realized, that I have so many loves and passions and I'm pretty much a total fangirl. I just love all of these books and movies so much and it's really fascinating the lessons you can learn from them and the emotions you feel. I could rant for ages about these movies because they are THAT impactful. It is crazy though. I mean I LOVE Lord of the Rings. I LOVE Les Miserables. I LOVE the Twilight series even. I LOVE Harry Potter. I LOVE Perks of Being a Wallflower. I LOVE Disney. I don't get how I can love so many of them all at once. But I do!
7. Okay. Some of those Oscar dresses! REALLY.  I mean... really. How come they get such gorgeous dresses?
8. I realized the importance of having adventures and seizing the day. Carpe Diem. Honestly, I'm realizing that one should always have at least one adventure a day. I'm not saying I always have one adventure a day, but I should. It makes the day more eventful. But I've definitely been working on my adventureness. Like for instance, I got impromptu marshmellows for the heck of it the other day. Sometimes you need to do small, little things for yourself (like buying marshmellows) or with your friends(like making butterbeer and twig wands) and taking pictures of it. Recording it for keepsakes. I think it's very important to dream and makes the dreams come true by having adventures. I think it's important to create memories. I think it's important to Seize the Day.

These are the truths of the matters.
Thats been this weekend.
How was your weekend?
What's in your mind?
What's in your wallet?
(Just kidding, I don't really care for an answer for the last Q.)
Also, it's midnight when I'm writing this and I'm tired and this post is a bit hectic and One Day More is playing in my head right now.


  1. i finally saw perks too and i just about had a heart attack, it was so amazing! i love dead poets society- one of my favorites! i love your weekend, sounds like a lot of fun xo

  2. SO exciting that you were able to see the Titanic Artifact Exhibit. I need to add that to me bucket list for sure. And yes, Finding Neverland is an epic movie!

  3. SO happy you saw the perks of being a wallflower :) The Titanic exhibit seems really interesting, wish you could have taken photos!

  4. FINDING NEVERLAND!!!! *squees like a fangirl* I love that movie so much. It's so gorgeous. I have the whole soundtrack too and I listen to it all the time. ^_^ <3 I love it.
    I'm so jealous you got to watch the Oscars. I wanted to SO bad but seeing as we only have one tv and I'm the only one in my family that's terribly interested everyone else's votes for something else outweighed my interest in the Oscars. :( Oh well. :D i've been consoling myself with pictures this morning. ^_^
    I love the pics. They look crazy happy! <3

  5. I looked up the Les Mis cast singing One Day More after this and you're right. They did blow it out of the park! Go them!

  6. Finding Neverland! Gah. I agree with Rinksii on that matter.
    this whole post was awesome<3

  7. Haha this was awesome.

    1. I remember I saw Finding Neverland when it first came out, and I was much younger. I watched it with my parents. I remember I didn't pay much attention to it while it was on. At the end, my parents said they didn't care for it that much, so I just shrugged my shoulders and agreed. Now I am curious to watch it as an adult who can decide for myself, darn it! Hahaha.

    2. What on earth do you put in butterbeer? it looks so good!

    3. I didn't watch the Oscars. I forgot about them until they were over. haha. But all the pictures I have seen, the dresses are REALLY revealing and like, "whoaaa there." I'm curious to see the pretty ones that didn't have body parts hanging out of them! Which one was your fave?!

    4. I totally agree about seizing the day and your appreciation of Dead Poets Society. Totally made me cry, that one, but so good and inspiring!

    5. Ummm I wrote "5" but I think I didn't have another point. Oh! Except thanks for your wonderful comment :) You are such a dear and I appreciate your words and prayers sooooooo much! You have no idea!

    P.S. I think we should do a swap interview or something sometime :)

  8. Titanic, that must have been so cool! 8D
    Finding Neverland! I'm gonna have to look that up, having Just Read Peter Pan!! =D I'm glad I did too, it was amusing and sad and sort of unexpected 'cause I don't think I've ever read it before, so I didn't know how it ended. And this one part was so funny, boy is Peter concieted, but the contrast of characters... do you remember that part when they're flying and they don't know how to sleep while flying, so they fall?

    "Certainly they did not pretend to be sleepy, they were sleepy; and that was a danger, for the moment they popped off, down they fell. The awful thing was that Peter thought this funny.
    "'There he goes again!'" he would cry gleefully, as Michael suddenly dropped like a stone."

    Then Peter dives down of course, but, he's too funny! =D
    Anyway, your weekend sounds awesome and I too want to know whatcha' put in butterbeer. I'm guessing Rootbeer + milk +... buuuutter???
