30 Days of Truth/Paranormal Activity 2

First things first, 30 Days of Truth.
I first saw this on Mandy's blog and decided that this was something I wanted to do. I am always trying to find a way to be more "open" with people. Over the years, I've built this wall around me, and I very rarely show my feelings. I'd like to say that if I had a problem that I could directly handle the issue, but that would be a complete lie. I'm hoping that by sharing this with all of you, I can learn more about opening up, and you can learn more about me!
Day 1: Something you hate about yourself.
Hate is a strong word. But if I had to choose one thing, it would be the lack of confidence I have in myself. I will never tell you (in a serious manner, at least) that I believe in myself. I have never really fully grasped the concept of loving myself for who I am or believing that I can achieve the dreams and goals that I have for myself. There are so many things wrong with this. I desperately want to overcome this huuuge obstacle in my life. It has stopped me from doing so many things. My friends are tired of it, I'm sure. And I put Tyler through so much by not believing in myself.
So many things have gone wrong because of this. It needs to be fixed.
...This 30 Days of Truth thing is going to be tough. Haha

Ooooh. Onto a new topic!
I saw Paranormal Activity 2 last night!! (WARNING: There *might* be spoilers!)
It was SO much better than the first movie. Really. The first was just kinda.. blah. But this one, man. This one kept my head buried in Colby's shoulder, crying, and saying "I hate the night time! I hate the night time!" throughout the entire movie. I was so anxious the whole time. After one incident, about half way through, I couldn't stop shaking, and I started thinking, "How am I going to be able to drive all the way home by myself in the middle of the night?" I was freaking out. I never freak out like this during scary movies. Never. I thrive off of these movies! I love them. But this one struck a chord with me. Maybe it was the fact that it involved a baby? I don't know. But there were sooo many connections to the first one. First of all, it happens prior to the first film. It's kind of the precursor to how all of this started happening to Katie. It was super interesting seeing how everything tied together. The end was amazing, it had me thinking about it all night. And I'm not kidding - about 10 minutes in, I was crying like a little baby, wanting to go home. I turned to Colby at the end of the movie & said, "I'm sorry for crying all over you. Will you please hold my hand now?" Hahah, I'm so thankful for a best friend who doesn't laugh at me when I get scared. :)
Really, if you were a fan of the first one, or if you were even slightly frightened by the first movie, go. see. the. sequel.
So much better!!

  1. Nope, never...I couldn't do it. The trailer scares me enough...this is one movie I couldn't watch. I don't like the scary movies that are "real life" like. Over active imagination. Hardcore.

  2. Yeah, I have to agree with the previous comment. The trailer was scary enough! I liked the first one, but scary movies that involve babies, are just a little too much me.
