For A Boring Time Go See The Libertine

So this weekend I went to see The Libertine with Johnny Depp and am still bothered by how bad this movie is. I'm still trying to figure out the purpose of the movie and why anyone ever thought to make it. It couldn't have been for entertainment purposes because it was an extremely boring movie with little to no action. I thought maybe it would be a powerful and moving history lesson yet I feel it was neither powerful nor moving but was simply a small history lesson of a story I think we're all just fine never really knowing.

So the moral of this blog is don't go see The Libetine, even if you're an enormous Johnny Depp fan you're more than likely going to be disappointed.

If you have seen the movie please don't hesitate to tell me what you thought of the movie, perhaps you found a meaning to the movie you could share.

Bringing Home The Bacon

Well today I started my part time job to pull in some money while continuing my search for a full time job. I'm working on website marketing for an advertising agency in Malibu. Basically this means I'm optimizing our clients websites so that they come up first when doing a yahoo or google search. Nothing too exciting yet but it's only been one day and I'm still learning. Seems like there will be opportunities to do more work but we'll see. It's basically my boss, the founder of the company, and one other girl running the company so it's small and very laid back. We share the office, which is very very tiny, with Malibu Magazine so I'm getting to hear all about that business as well which has already proved to be entertaining. My boss says there is potiental for this to turn into a full time position but I don't know what all that would emcompass or if he could afford me so in the meantime I'm going to continue my search.

Anyway that's what will now be occupying my time, giving me a little extra money, and experience. Besides that not much going on in my life right now. Trying to get back into keeping up with the blog and hopefully will be adding some more pictures to the website soon so keep checking back.

The Great Race!

Well early this morning I ran my first 10k and actually completed it! It was right here in the neighborhood and was the Great Race of Agoura. Apparently it has been voted one of the top 6 best 10ks in the nation. It was set back around the neighborhood but the majority was spent back in the horse farm area of Agoura just alongside the mountains. So it was a very lovely and peaceful run.

For those of you who are wondering, my official time was 1 hour 13 minutes and 8 seconds. Didn't do that great in the overall picture but I'm pretty happy with myself considering it was my first time and I hadn't run in over a month.

I was a little scared going into it knowing I had never run that long of a distance before but wanted to see what I could do. Turns out it wasn't as hard as I thought it would have been and now I can't wait to do another one. Just need to let the knee heal some before I tear it up again.
