One thing you all may or may not know about me is that I have an obsession with classic films. I get this obsession from my family. My grandfather has literally seen almost every film made between the 1930s-1970s and probably a few in between. You can describe any movie or ask a question about it and he will have an answer for you. One of my personal goals was to become old-movie smart just like my grandfather. 
One of my absolute favorite films is Rear Window. This film by Alfred Hitchcock is about an injured photographer (Jimmy Stewart) bedridden who becomes convinced that his neighbor in his apartment complex murdered his wife. After watching the man's activities through one his photography lens, he informs that police, but nobody believes him except for his girlfriend (Grace Kelly) and his nurse. If you are interested in the ending you either (a) need to watch the movie, or (b) look it up online. The plot-line and costumes are fantastic and it stars two of my favorite actors together. 
If you are someone who only watches current movies, I would highly recommend this one. Alfred Hitchcock films are great for anyone "who can't stand watching a fuddy-duddy old movie." The suspense will have you on the edge of your seat and Grace will sweep you away.



This past week has been so crazy! Classes finally ended and I have completed all of my finals. I can't tell you what a relief it is. Now that I am done I can enjoy spending time with friends and family, catching up on my old movie watching and spend more time blogging. 
The past three weeks (month really) have been so jammed pack. Although I haven't had a whole lot of free time recently, I have found that when life is hectic you start to appreciate the small things. Whether it is having a friend send you a nice note on a bad day or just hearing the birds sing, all of these things are something special.
This week, find the time to enjoy something you may not have noticed before. This might sound cliche, but the world we live in is so amazing. It doesn't matter what part of the world you are from, your culture and your surroundings are something to be enjoyed. Find the pleasures in the small things and just enjoy life. 
Have a good week.
