E.T. phone home!

I have a new favourite movie. As I grow older and wiser, inevitably my taste grows ever more refined and impeccably sophisticated. 

Hence - E.T. Haha, watching this movie is like being wrapped up in the softest of blankets while your imagination soars and dances. Really, can anyone be too old for this movie? Impossible. There's nothing better than childlike wonder and loyalty.

In other news, I've been spending loads of time at the beach and it is just unbelievably gorgeous and relaxing and inspiring. Can't get over it. Sometimes I read a YA book when I'm there. Yep, life is nice. Too bad I go back to school next week. Oh well, hopefully the smell of freshly sharpened pencils will also inspire (rather than terrify).


  1. You're never too old for ET! I watched that movie so many times when I was younger, and as I got older, I learned to appreciate how good a movie it really is (mostly I just liked the fact there was an alien in it when I was a kid, lol ;) ). Hmm, I think I might need to dig it out again ...

    It sounds like you've been having a fantastic time at the beach, Lucy! There's nothing like lying on the beach with a good book. I'm a huge fan of YA and children's books myself, so if you catch me reading, it'll probably be one of those!

    Good luck with the start of school! I know you'll be a star student!! (P.S. What are you going to school for?)

  2. Next week I will start a certification program at UCSD so that I can teach English here in California (or anywhere in the US). Then at the beginning of February I will start my MA in Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching but by distance learning, so that I can stay in California rather than go to England (due to student visa troubles, sob sob).

    It's so strange going back to school! I hope I can remember how to be a student again haha!

    Have a fabulous day, Jessie :-)

  3. Wow, I'm so impressed with your ambition! Don't worry, you're going to rock at being a student :) I thought the same thing at first, but buying paper and color-coded notebooks helped. Oh, and freshly sharpened pencils ;)
