Yesterday I spent the majority of my day packing (FINALLY!) and knitting. My mom asked if I wanted to go see Eat, Pray, Love and I decided I could take a break from my rather unproductive day to go see the movie. I read the book a really long time ago, I think it was my junior year of high school? Regardless, I loved it and I love Julia Roberts so I figured it couldn’t hurt to see the cinematic version of the novel. I just have a few things to say.
If you haven’t seen the movie you should give it a try. If you haven’t read the book you should ABSOLUTELY read it. Especially if you’ve ever dealt personally with divorce, depression, or feeling lost in life (it appeals to pretty much everyone). It was a fantastic way to end the weekend!
And before I go, a note on disparaging comments. Before I go to the negative, I want to say that I appreciate and love every comment that you guys leave for me. They are all sent to my email and if I don’t reply on the post, know that I read (and re-read) whatever you say to me. It blows my mind that people are reading this and that they want to contribute by leaving me sweet comments! I love it. Having said that, I would like to address the anonymous comments that are less than pleasant. A friend of mine told me that you aren’t big in the blogging world until you have haters and I guess that I’m getting there because I’ve recently gotten some comments on posts and on my formspring that are rather cruel. I’d like to address them formally so here goes:
If you are reading my blog and you do not like what I have to say then stop reading. No one is forcing you to be here. No one is making you look at my pictures or read day-to-day stories about my life. And I am certain that no one is forcing you to comment and criticize me on a personal level. Be aware that when you are reading this blog (or any blog for that matter), that you are reading a perfectly tailored snapshot of someone. The voice of this blog is just one facet of my personality. I like to keep things light. I want my blog to be a place where people can go to find little bits of inspiration and maybe gain some motivation in their own lives. If you only know me through my blog, please be aware that you don’t know the whole story. I know that I am choosing to put my personal life on the internet and that may seem like a cry for attention, but really I just wanted to be a part of (what I thought was) the incredibly supportive DIY community. So please, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. And if you frequently find yourself muttering angry words at your computer while you’re reading my blog, then stop reading.
I apologize for turning my happy movie review into an angry sort of rant. I promise I will not address negative comments in the future (especially not in a post) and will continue to keep things positive around here.
