Hello WordPress friends! I was just freaking out about how fast 2016 is going by. How is it April already?? But anyway, I’ve finally written my first piece over on the Chick Flick blog and it seems like a good start. I started with an all time favorite sleeper hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Because, unexpectedly they released a sequel that apparently came out in march of this year. And another shocker is that Rita Wilson and her lesser know husband Tom Hanks produced the movies. Shocker!
So if you fancy a little bit of rom com today the post it’s here.
Since conceptualizing the blog I’ve researched on some overlooked romantic comedies. Not just rom coms. Just movies that you think are within the Chick Flick genre.
Today, I jump start an idea. It was not my best, but still! I wanted to be more productive and I used to use this blog as a way for me to do that. But since I haven’t been exactly “living my life” I decided to make another blog. I know… I know… It seems counter productive to start another project when you’re harboring guilty feelings about not continuing on the previous one. But this is good WordPress!
I thought to myself, what are things I’m good at or just things that I like to do that I can write about? I thought about writing about cooking, which I’m getting very good at, if I do say so myself. But thinking of what to cook for dinner already takes the strength out of me. I thought about writing about the books I read, but who are we kidding. That one’s going to be a very slow blog. And then it came to me, maybe I should start writing about movies again. Again, because I used to have this movie blog that’s gone to the dogs (for good reason).
The problem with me writing about movies is I can’t decide on what movie to watch. And having to “review” a movie takes the fun out of seeing it. So, maybe stick a genre, one that doesn’t take itself too seriously? RomComs came to the rescue. I mean, I love rom-coms, and there are hundreds of them out there. Some, I admit, I’ve seen a lot of times (When Harry Met Sally and Miss Congeniality on the top of my head) and some I haven’t even seen (Moonstruck, Roxanne among others), which is a tragedy. Especially for someone like me who aspires to be a screenwriter and DREAMING of becoming the next Tina Fey – I know Tina didn’t write a rom-com (yet! it could happen!) but she wrote Mean Girls, which is a Chick Flick. And that train of thought has lead me to a blog I will call “Nothing But Chick Flicks” – a blog of movies made FOR women but not necessarily made BY women.
Only dilemma is to put it where? I mean, how many of you WordPress inhabitants would be interested in that kind of thing? Let me know.
Tina Fey said in an interview (in relation to her leaving SNL after 9 years), “In life, you don’t get to choose these transitions” or something in that sense. I was having a hard time remembering what she exactly said. But the gist of all of is, you just know when it’s time for a change. No one tells you when. You just know. And then it’s completely up to you to actually make the change happen.
I knew that the day would come, eventually. But I never thought that I would enjoy it as much as I do. I am still wack at it and I could not apply eyeliner to save a life, but I whole heartedly enjoy it.
Maybe the boy band pop album was a drawback to this becoming a woman thing (have you seen those boys/men?? They make me mad thirsty!) but it also means I’m not a complete snob when it comes to music like I used to.
I am changing. I am getting older. And I unironically like it.

This is my blogs second day in the Internet world! So far it’s been good! I can’t believe I’ve never made a WordPress before! What a doofus. This site is so easy to use! Now I don’t have to Google my way into blogging. Everything makes sense.
This post is probably not the best ‘first impression’ but if you stumbled upon this post, maybe you can give me some recommendations as to who to follow around here?
