The new year, and the one we leave behind.

So, this year hasn't been the greatest ever... but I don't think I could pick a year out of all the years I have lived that was "great".  There has always been challenges, but I never thought that through everything the world would just continue to move on.  I don't wish for an amazing upcoming year, but I do wish for an average year.  Average is better than great, I think that average describes me better than any other word.  Because with Average, there is no peak.  That's what I like about average, it's steady, calm.  But I know that nothing is average, and that this year will be a great adventure, not as great an adventure as Lord of the Rings, or Harry Potter, or twilight (?), but it's an Adventure.

The new hearthrob in hollywood??!

I'm not really the type to crush over actors or anything (except you Robert Pattinson:) but when I really like and love an actor, it means they are good. Some of you may be shocked by this but....(brace yourselves).... it's Michael Cera.  after seeing his amazing (awesome, incredible, addicting, hilarious, suspenseful, did I mention that it's awesome?) movie Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, I fell in love with him.  True, he was amazing in Juno, and Youth in Revolt, but this movie really showed how good of an actor he really is.  Look, I'm really not going to tear up if you hate him, but if you're wondering who in the world I'm talking about, look him up.  You are on a computer or wifi device, so I know you're on internet, so look him up.  Or you could rent one of his movies too.
