"One Fine Day"

 This post's title is slightly misleading. I am not discussing a good day I had or my one true love nor is the tune of this oldies song in my head. I love the movie "One Fine Day" (with George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer) for many many reasons, but I am thinking of this movie currently because of the underlying theme of being a grown up. As a 22-year old I definitely consider myself a grown up, and I feel like I have done a lot of grown up things lately what with moving, working with an unknown school system, becoming a teacher, and attempting to live independently. On the flip side, Carl and I have been very dependent on his parent's until we can find a place to live in Maryland. I feel like I haven't been able to be a full fledged adult. It's not anything anyone has done, it's just the attitude I am having.

So how do I become the perfect mixture of George Clooney (fun-loving and carefree) and Michelle Pfeiffer (indepedent and in charge)? Are there really times in our life when we need to be one extreme or the other? Or can we learn to mix the two together?

This isn't a very put together post; I'm simply rambling and should probably check my grammar to ensure my creditials as an English major ;) And although there is no set "secret of happiness" in this post, always know that written out or spoken feelings are better than internal ones and you will feel happines :)


  1. I know what you mean. I miss having you here to ramble on to about how lame I am :) Hope you and Carl are able to take care of things like adults but play like kids (enjoying every moment no matter what you are doing). LOVE YOU FRIEND!!!! I miss you

  2. I remember watching this at your house. This is something I've been thinking about a lot lately. I love this post.
