5 Things I Love this Week

by - Tuesday, May 17, 2011

1. My brother has a blog now! Check it: http://sceneitup.blogspot.com/ I am excited to read what he writes about, because he is a way more committed and opinionated film buff than I am.
2. Richard Brilliant's book on Portraiture- started reading this book this morning and it is so relevant both to what I am doing and to considering the individual as medium. I'm not through it, so I will have to give my final opinion after I finish it (and hopefully after I get a firmer grip on this paper.
3. Tolerance in Pennsylvania- This week a survey came out that showed in every region of Pennsylvania, the (not always vast, but still significant) majority of the population supported a bill against discriminating against people because of their sex and sexual identity. I am proud of this poll, even though I know there is still a lot that can be improved upon.
4. The speech scene in Bridesmaids- I have so been there.
5. My fantastic friend Mindy- it is the worst to be far away from a friend when they are going through a rough time. At the same time, she constantly reminds me of what a ridiculously tough cookie she is, not to mention that she has more courage than most everyone else I know combined. She is a huge-hearted force to be reckoned with, and I can't wait to get home and have one of our long conversations in person!
