My personality is 30% the last movie I watched.

I just saw that one sentence on Tumblr and, that surely describes me quite well. If you bother to read the rare texts I write here you will confirm this in a snap of fingers. By the way, I can't snap my fingers. It is a limitation of mine, one of the many I bitterly embrace. Yes, I embrace it, because at some point you realize there's nothing else you can do but, embrace your limitations. But, as I was saying, can you live life as if it was a film? I have an irresolute answer to that. (possibly negative.) If you could live life as if it was a film..if your life was a film, what genre would it be? If my life was a film I'd fast forward it. Not because I want time to pass, quite the opposite, but because it is filled with uninteresting moments. I am sure yours is too. Although, I wouldn't necessarily watch my own life if it was a film, I by no means, think this is a bad thing because, after all I am not so much a fan of action movies. Now, guess what was the last film I've watched. ;)

  2. If my life was a film it would fit under the comedy-drama genre. The dramatic tone of Girl, Interrupted with the sardonic humour of Ghost World or Daria. I agree with you that I'd fast forward a lot of my film too since it'd be boring and repetitive or I'd re-edit it into a short film. Hmm maybe if I thought of my life as a film with someone watching I'd actively try to make it more interesting. I've thought about my life as a film a lot haha.

  3. Don't know if it was the last film you watched but you look like Anna Karina in Le Petit Soldat in these pictures.

  5. i think you saw "mary poppins", hahah.

    about living the life as a film there's a quote from italo calvino's "A aventura de um fotógrafo" about living the life as a photo:

    "É só você começar a dizer a respeito de alguma coisa: 'Ah, que bonito, tinha era que tirar uma foto!', e já está no terreno de quem pensa que tudo que não é fotografado é perdido, que é como se não tivesse existido, e que então para viver de verdade é preciso fotografar o mais que se possa, e para fotografar o mais que se possa é preciso: ou viver de um modo o mais fotografável possível, ou então considerar fotografáveis todos os momentos da própria vida. O primeiro caminho leva à estupidez, o segundo à loucura."

  8. Hey so I just started reading your blog and it is fantastic!! The last movie I think you saw is Sylvia with Gwyneth Paltrow, I am probably wrong, but that is definitely the vibe I am getting and if so that movie is beautiful and tragic all wrapped up in one but that is my guess. Great photos btw!

  9. That statement is so true! The last movie I watched was a French rom com called Romantics Anonymous, which was scarily relatable and very cute. :)

  13. I found your blog a week ago, and i already love it (but i'm not the only one).
    Thank you so much, because your photo just made me think about a picture i found on the internet a long time ago but i never had the opportunity to know from what movie it was. After so many years what a relief.

    (sorry for my bad level in english)
