Summer is my favorite season movie-wise because that’s the time for fun action-packed films. When I see a movie with friends, I’m all about explosions and fight scenes that don’t require much thought. I like good dialogue and a tight script too, but action movies are always a better choice for outings. I don’t know if that’s just me. I prefer to watch biopics and indie films by myself, where I don’t have to explain everything and I’m not worrying if the person with me is enjoying it or not. My favorite movies, Atonement and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, both require attention and I understand if some people aren’t down for that.
So earlier this week, we saw X-Men: Days of Future Past. I don’t keep tabs on the X-Men universe so I don’t know much beyond the movies, but I enjoyed it a lot. I’m pretty interested in what the post-credit scene suggested too. I’m still looking forward to Godzilla as well! And of course, I did see my favorite superhero ever, Spiderman. I have much love for the first trilogy (yeah, even the third one in all its laughable glory), and I’m enjoying the reboot very much. I find myself strangely attracted to Dane DeHaan. /cough.
We also went out to lunch at one of my favorite Mediterranean restaurants before seeing the movie. I’ve been all about their spiced Athens fries! That’s one thing I’m going to miss dearly when we move away. I’ll have to find new places to eat when we get to Philly to fill the void. If any of you are ever in Vegas, I highly recommend Paymon’s. You haven’t lived until you’ve tried their fries. They have a hookah lounge too!
Surprise outfit post! My hair getting long. Very long. I haven’t had a proper haircut in maybe three years since I’ve learned how to properly trim my own hair. It saves me money, and I can control when to do it and how much to take off. Here are the instructions I always follow: Feye’s Hair Trimming Method. It doesn’t give wispy layers or anything too complicated, but if you’re trying to grow your hair out it’s very useful for cutting out splits.
My hair is well past my waist now. I’m surprised it’s been able to withstand all the bleaching and dyeing I’ve put it through these last few months. Of course, it’s not as healthy as virgin hair but it feels fine and there’s no breakage. It’s probably because I’m only dyeing it brown. If I wanted to go even lighter, I’d have to bleach it again and I can’t say if my hair can make it through another round.
I’m actually planning on getting a haircut soon! I really like my hair now, but at the same time I feel like it’s time for a change. I guess I could go both ways at this point: keep growing and reach classic hair status or chop it all off. I’m definitely going for the latter. I miss short hair! It’s gonna take more maintenance on my part though. Believe it or not, if you want to have the easiest, most low-maintenance hair ever, grow your hair to waist. It’ll always look good (even if you just woke up, bedhead is considered sexy), and if you want it out of the way just bun it up. Boom.
