I've recently become a little bit obsessed with French romantic comedies. So much so that Netflix has created a special category of them, just for me. Which I found very thoughtful, especially when it recommended Romantics Anonymous. Initially, I was psyched just by the title. I often consider myself one of the last romantics in the world (this is my latest reasoning as to why I am still single) so to think that in France there may be a club for other people in my same boat (or rather the existence of an idea of a club like that), was oddly thrilling.
In actuality, the translation of the title is a little off because the term 'emotifs' had to do more with an anxiety disorder that plagued the main characters of the film than being a romantic the way we understand it. But don't worry. If you think you don't want to watch a movie about two people who are completely socially awkward fall in love (while making chocolates), you are probably wrong. I found the whole thing to be entirely charming.
Also, I love French films, because they always seem to have the best art direction and costume design. And the actresses are always pretty in a subtle, normal way. I like that.
I have this bad habit of not wanting to start things until I can do them properly. I think every year I make some sort of resolution about not procrastinating in some capacity. But old habits die hard. Back in March (I think?) I started a redesign of the blog. Changed the name, changed the header... and then for some reason didn't finish. I think in a lot of ways I was feeling a little bit lost and wasn't in the mood to get back up here and I felt like I hadn't really mapped out what it is that I wanted to do with this. But recently I started thinking again about the "Begin Anywhere" advice and decided to get it done.
So I'm back. And I've changed the name of the blog, but it will have mostly the same content with a few new things and probably a little bit more about me. So I hope you keep reading! Also, this image was one of the inspirations for the new name:
