But seriously, this past week has been a blur. Sometimes bad, sometimes good, I celebrated my Champagne Birthday when I turned 26 on the 26th, and then I drove myself to the cusp of a nervous breakdown by trying to cram in the last dozen Oscar Nominees before the show.
So, here's a few things that I'm taking away as I reflect on a whirlwind February, with the help of hilarious gifs:
John Travolta is a Marionette
Seriously, it was like watching a malfunctioning Ken Doll up there...
I Hope Little Girls Everywhere are Looking Up to Lupita Nyong'o
Beautiful, intelligent, talented, authentic, and confident. I can't wait to see what she does next, and her speech made me cry. Her win is even more incredible when you realize that her role as Patsey in 12 Years a Slave was her very first big role after finishing Yale Drama School. Dream big!
The Person Who Directed the Oscars is Definitely Fired
I did a better job directing a student play in 12th grade. Seriously. 17 year old me would have nailed that gig.
The 80s are Back, and I'm Confused
SEQUINS! SEQUINS EVERYWHERE!
Watch Out Boys, The Ladies are Ruling Hollywood Now
26 Actually Does Feel Different Than 25
This year I want to do a lot. Among those things? Get healthier, get a tattoo, bring sexy back, get a podcast, get an Xbox One, finish my screenplay, become rich and famous.
Check back in a few months... I'm sure I'll have made a lot of progress on all of those things.
