As time goes by, I find that it's becoming more clear how I can never move on from the habit of partiality--I am a creative girl, and practical things tend to bore me. So, let's just say that I won't be on the richer side of the public when I graduate.
I do see, however, ways I can pursue a career with this very particular and sadly narrow interest of mine. To name a few, there are academic, journalistic, managerial approaches. None of which I find myself too comfortable with.
Nonetheless, I continue to find ways to incorporate all my crazily diverse interests together into a category. With my studies coming to its end, I am finding that things I take from my studies are beginning to come together as a comprehensive whole. I feel like I'm making progress now.
I always thought that Sleeping Beauty was the most gorgeous Disney princess of all the princesses.
And I still do..
But what I love the most about this movie is the background watercolors...
They are painted so beautifully, it depicts the dreaminess of the story so well. It's funny because I never realized it as a child,
but after having...I guess "cultured" into knowing how to pay attention to more than just the what any ordinary children would be interested in, it's become clear that there have been great efforts put into creating these great films.
I really miss these days when animated films were not whipped up with computer graphics. Water color and classic forms of the old day Disney movies are really something they should try to bring back.
I believe it would be celebrated not only by the children, but by the older generations as well. I mean, how many of us have voiced our aversion for recreated 3D versions of classic Disney movies or perhaps one of the worst, the Smurf movie?
So enough of these discussions for now, I have been finding these wonderful full version Disney movie clips, one after another.
I think it won't hurt to have them playing in the background, since they are so lovely.
Completely out of the blue, I have been obsessing one Disney movie from childhood after another.
Of course, some of these movies aren't Disney at all, but are nonetheless reminiscent of the Disney sort of air.
It's been quite a dreamy weekend this week, as I sit here munching on little snacks of almonds and fruit snacks,
Outside the breeze seem to be getting stronger and stronger as the day becomes close to supper time.
I can't stop admiring the fluttering down of seed pods just outside my window. They spin altogether, and the air is soon
filled with a delightful little show of golden pod leaves that reflect brightly against the falling sun at this hour.
It really is something to be watching these movies again after so many years. You get to see them from such a new and fresh perspective that you would've missed as a child.
We all know how inappropriate Disney movies can be, and watching them again now makes me see more things that left me--at times--aghast.
I, personally, am a huge fan of Lewis Carroll, and have read almost all of his works, but to think that Disney has incorporated his stories into a children's film can actually seem quite strange--when has a caterpillar speaking nonsense after smoking mushroom ever been appropriate for the young viewers?
Nonetheless, I have been nostalgic as I surrounded myself this afternoon with childhood snacks and films.
But for some reason, one seems to have lingered pleasantly with me the most. This story of two dogs of "different social class" is rather a cute little tale.
The Lady and the Tramp is an adorable little piece, but sadly, I don't think it's received as much affection as did '101 Dalmations'. That even went on until...103 Dalmations I think?
Not to mention, it continued as an actual film, not just an animated movie.
Nonetheless, I thought that it would be lovely if you would join me in this nostalgic moment by taking an hour break with this film.
I never realized how romantic the story really was until now. It made me think of my own darling and how I wish to be with him myself right now..
I too want to stroll around the park with him and accidentally grab the same strand of the pasta and not notice until our lips touch.. And perhaps I will do that as a date.
Speaking of which, isn't that a wonderful idea? A Disney-themed date, where you do all the things that Disney couples do!
1. Riding a boat together (Little Mermaid)
2. Dancing in the woods where no one else is watching (Sleeping Beauty)
3. Eating pasta together (Lady and the Tramp)
4. Go on a magic carpet ride....?(Aladdin)
I'm just kidding with the last one, but it is a dear thought. More than anything, I think that it is a much more splendid idea than spending so much money on the girl.
But now I'm just daydreaming. I hope you too will be inspired to have a romantic and nostalgic day after reading this, and I won't hold you any longer from watching this wonderful Disney film. Enjoy!
