Not in any specific order, but I found some on the internet and some that I remember as amazing movies!
I really recommend watching these and analyzing why the acting was so amazing.
Requiem For A Dream ( was my favorite movie before i found...)
GIRL, INTERRUPTED! (amazing!!!!)
Johnny Depp- Pirates of the Carribean
Tom Hanks- Saving Private Ryan (I've seen this one in history class- it's pretty intense!)
Johnny Depp in Edward Scissorhands
Marlon Brando in Streetcar Named Desire/Viva Zapata/Godfather
Natalie Portman- Beautiful Girls
Kevin Spacey & Mena Suvari - American Beauty
Robin Williams - One Hour Photo
Dakota Fanning - I Am Sam

Any more acting movies you would recommend watching?

Theatre Show Review from last night (and technique)

Last night, I volunteered at a theatre that wasn't so local, but still around me somewhat
Basically, it was amazing. Not in the way they used props (they didn't use any) or any of that fancy stage equipment lights or stuff, it was so classic and you had to use your imagination to understand it
And that was what made it so powerful, the fact that the actors focused on making people  believe that they were in a certain position. They didn't change clothes at all, and they played like 5 different characters, simply changing one to another by doing an action.
So let that be kind of a trial thing, try to look in a mirror and try to be as many characters as you can by changing personalities, stories and accents :)
Let your imagination go wild, (and film it if you can and put it on youtube for me to see ) ;)

Magazines are bad?

I just watched a video where some philosopher said magazines and pictures of people living a "greater" life are bad for you because they make you (subconsciously) feel bad about yourself.
What do you think?
Personally I love fashion editorials and I like the beauty and cultural aspect of it, not so much of a "oh i wish I looked like that" kind of thing... but then again, I trust smart people haha

Book Recommendation!

Hey guys! A while ago somebody inboxed me (or told me elsewhere and i completely forgot) about an awesome acting book! So incase you're going to go to the mall sometime soon or you live near a bookstore or a library, try to find out if they have the book in stock. If you do read it, let me know. I'm thinking for my next contest I'll give away a book like this to the winner :)

Final decisions

I'm at that point in my 10th year where they are making us chose a career, in several classes and chose classes for next year that will be shown to universities.
For days I felt so much pressure and it was just new to me, this idea of having to chose from a doctor, lawyer, scientist, all that stuff that I honestly would never want to do. I love travelling, I love the world, I love culture and humanities. Oh and I'm only like..really good at it too. Except what kind of job does one who likes to travel get?! -.- a travel agent? lol. Basically, I found a "job" I would be over the moon about. It takes lots of university and entering economics.. which isn't my cup of tea to say the least. It's a one in a million job but I want to be that one, and I sure believe I can be :) I'm not telling anyone what it is because it sounds crazy and I don't want to explain to anyone what it entitles. But I also don't want to jinx it. I'm not one to talk talk talk, I'm one to do.

There are around 132 days until summer for me... and might I say that I am so ready for it. I keep putting together outfits that would only work in the summer, and yesterday I walked outside and wanted to cry from how cold it was. Oh but the dreaded march month... I hate March. I feel like mother nature is taunting humans in March. It's hot one day, and you finally get excited to go out in  a sweater, and then the next day it's snowing. All the snow is melted one day and you get so happy, and the next it's all back. April is getting good, May is amazing, and June is just indescribable. February is one of my worst months too, I always get really antisocial and do stuff really out of my character... seriously why is there even a winter? I don't see a benefit to society or the earth. That was my rant.
Picture taken by me, in the glorious month of may..

stop hating people, stop hating

Why put somebody down because they're trying to do their own thing?
Why put somebody down because of the way they look? They were born that way, and everybody is beautiful.
Why would you try to make someone feel less than you? There are better ways to raise your confidence.
It's gross, just gross and annoying when I see people trying to put others down for doing their own thing, for being different or for being unique.
Haters should be everybody's motivators :)
Don't embarrass yourselves haters, some can see right through you and see nothing but insecurities.
