Dear Journal Viewers, 

God, I love this icon, I love this woman! Thanks crown_the_queen

Lots have happened since my last real post.  I have many new friends on my list now, thanks to the Mrs. Robinson group. It was so nice to find a place that celebrates these talented and beautiful older women. My mom thinks I should write a book called "In Praise of the Older Woman" and take the photos myself. I might just do that someday. Who wouldn't want to photograph someone like a Deneuve or Mirren? 

So many of you know that I am taking my Senior year abroad in South Africa. I am so excited and thrilled to be going. For a while I was very nervous about the violence and racial aspects of my visit. I am stil taking this giant step with trepidation but I really need to DO IT! 
My fears have been somewhat assuaged since my host family have contacted me and they sound like the nicest people. They live in East London, South Africa and have one daughter and two precious dogs. East London is a seaport town with some of the best beaches in the country, I guess I know where I'll be:) I am excited to meet them and learn about their way of life. 

The school year is coming to a close in a week, THANK GOD--I thought I might go nuts!  I have passed ALL of the required courses and can look forward to my Diploma next July! WOOOHOOO finally! I still am not sure of my college plans but I have the year to think of what my strategy can be. That's one reason I am going, to think. as Henry David Thoreau said that the best place to think is nature and I am sure going to a place where nature is abundent.

Hmmm I am still ridicolously obsessed with DENEUVE! Now I've seen: 
1. Place Vendome
2. Indochine '
3. 8 femmes 
4. Les Voleurs 
5. Dancer in the Dark 
6. The Convent 
7. The Hunger (totally makes me think that I'm a lesbian!)
8. (about half of) Belle De Jour and Umbrellas of Cherbourg. 

Hmmmm not bad! 

Ohhh blahh! Not much more to say... 

ANd because I feel like it--A PICSCAM!!! 

 

me at 8 in the morning right before skool---blahhhh 


gahhh I love this! 


I LOVE her short hair! 


......she can come trash my party ANYTIME 




ohh Juliette! 
I've decieded that FRENCH women are the BOMB! 
He is MY OTHER LOVE!!! DANIEL=BEST ACTOR ever--besides RALPH fiennes! 


Okay I will stop!

1. *sigh* Most gorgeous thing ever

Yeah, I'm aware of amazon and so on. I just prefer free file exchange programs, where from you can download stuff like movies, music and so on.


Well, I've gathered 40 in three years. Last Metro is one of her best films!!!
