Spontaneity *Almost* Always Wins & Six Years Celebration!

2014 has seriously been a intense journey so far.  Lots of good stuff and some stressful stuff going on.


I’ve been trying hard to keep up with the blog and especially reading all of your work.  I am no longer a week behind but 3 days! YAY! I’m trying to take a bit more time so that I can comment more.  There just isn’t really much to say when I skim over a review and final thoughts for a new release I haven’t seen, for one.  My goal this year was to go see ONE movie at the theatres each month.  We just stepped into March and if you frequent my blog, you will have realized I’m at zero for two (March just started, so I won’t count it). Its not even for lack of trying.  I plan it all the time…like Dhoom 3, then I get bombarded with 6-7 work days and plenty of overtime.  So that never happened.  I tried for this past Friday to go see Pompeii and ended up having overtime till 7pm.  Nope, I ended up going home and laying back in my chair and listening to music instead.

BUT, as much as those may seem like excuses, I’m working on it.  Pompeii, Need for Speed, Nymphomaniac: Part 1, and Divergent are all on my to-see list.  If I get half of those seen, I’d be pretty proud of myself.  🙂 I realized planning doesn’t seem to work, so I’m going to do spontaneous.  Once I get the chance and the energy, I’ll do it.  🙂 At least from here on out, every month has something I want to see so its looking good.  I hope I didn’t jinx it!

What movies are you looking forward to see in 2014?

Other than my sidetracked plans, this weekend has been fantastic and also the reason why I postponed writing this up.  I’ve been out and about spending extra time with my boyfriend.  We usually stay in and watch TV or whatnot but yesterday was the Festival of Lights annual overnight event in Montreal and exactly 6 years ago, we started our relationship.

I’ll go more in detail with the Festival of Lights event in a later post during the week.  In the past two years, I dedicated March 1 to writing up a post to my boyfriend and our relationship, so I figured this year, I won’t start making you all vomit from my mushiness 😉 I don’t have any more barf bags to hand out unfortunately.

Here’s a few pictures from last night!

It was REALLY  cold yesterday.  I can’t stress how cold it actually was but my goodness, its the first time we were in that area for the Festival of Lights.  It was a pretty refreshing experience.  Still, I think we were both just totally filled with happiness.  We’re in our six years and this year is bringing us bigger and better things from buying a house together and planning for everything.

Aside from the me on Tranquil Dreams, I actually have a pretty bad temper, I get frustrated easily especially when I’m stress and I’ve been suffering some pretty bad skin conditions that won’t go away.  From this past year especially, I totally get that quote up there.  For me, he’s perfect to me because he reminds me to take things one step at a time, and encourages and supports me through all my crazy ideas.  It feels great to know that someone always has my back. I’ve learned through these six years (that passed by so fast) that its important to find someone who can bring positive into your life when you can’t seem to see it; and to remember to have hope and encourage you to follow your dreams.  My boyfriend does that for me and that means a lot to me 🙂 I know he’ll eventually fumble on here and see this 😉

Some exciting/stressful/fun stuff coming up for both of us! 🙂

I tried to keep that short and sweet! Now, to make up for all of that, I always put music with my posts so lets check out some music obsessions I’ve been having (aside from Pitch Perfect clips)!

Hope you like it! 🙂

I won’t keep you any longer since I need to head down to make dinner and get ready to watch the Academy Awards (as a lot of you are probably doing also)! 🙂

Hope you’ve had a great weekend!

P.S. Recommendations month starts tomorrow!  Remember to drop by again! 🙂
