Adult Problems

Does anyone remember the movie Man of the House with Jonathon Taylor Thomas? I promise you that was the sexiest rain dance any human being has ever done.

In matters of truth and justice,
there is no difference between large and small problems,
for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.
- Albert Einstein

Remember when you were a kid and the only problems you had included one, many or all of the following problems:
  1. Mom or dad won't buy me that awesome toy I want
  2. I want a freaking car, but babysitting doesn't pay enough
  3. I like him/her, but she doesn't like me back
  4. I finally have a girlfriend/boyfriend, but they want all my candy
  5. Why isn't there enough freaking candy?
Now that you are an adult you see that there are real problems in the world such as:
  1. Mom or dad won't buy me that awesome toy I want
  2. I want a freaking car, but babysitting (job choice here) doesn't pay enough
  3. I like him/her, but she doesn't like me back
  4. I finally have a girlfriend/boyfriend, but they want all my candy
  5. Why isn't there enough freaking candy?
As you read the list a second time you realize, that's all true. You know what the real difference is between the two though? As an adult people pay attention to you. You've lived, you've possibly loved and most importantly you ARE OLDER. We look at children and we say they have no problems, they are dramatic and they will get over it. This is completely true, but remember the same goes for you. You will also get over it and one day you will hopefully have a delightful story. 

As adults we do have a two major problems that structure our lives.
  1. Career
  2. Family
Career determines many things. It determines money and location. This also determines whether you can actually afford number 2. Most importantly this is where you spend most of your time so it could possibly determine self-worth and happiness.

Family choice. Should you have a family? Can I afford the family? Should I go ahead and say what the hell and have a family with no money? Most importantly this can possibly determine self-worth and happiness.

As an added bonus here's another problem that children have compared to us as adults:
  • Their sex lives are destroying their actual lives
The big difference:
  • They possibly have a more active sex life than some of us as adults. Dry spell anyone? 
When you read this, do not scoff, but those are true statements from the life of a 12-year-old girl. I want to tell her that life is short. Life is far too complex to worry about such things as boys and sex and (?ADULT?) life problems at the moment. I want to tell her to wait to have sex, but possibly not as long as I waited since that was 22 yrs and 3 months before 23. That's another bad story for another great day.

"Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway."Ethel Merman

When I was 18 years old I went to my first Broadway show, the original broadway production of Mamma Mia. At the time Tina Maddigan was the lead and at the time I thought it was the greatest thing I had ever seen. Truthfully, I still have a special spot for that show and also for the lead. I don't know if this is true for everyone, but I don't see how anyone can truly forget their first show. My actual first show was watching Nutcracker in downtown Jacksonville. My teacher told me to watch for the tree and as it rose from it's spot it was spectacular. This means you will never forget your first show and you will never forget your first broadway spectacular. 

For those of you who liked the movie Mamma Mia (entire city of London), I thought it sucked. 

When I was 19 and I moved to New York, I was officially obsessed with going to the theatre. Usually, I only went to see cele…

POTUS is is Time for Respect

Potus​ decision aside. Secretary Hillary Clinton​ is human just like the rest of us. This means she is fallible...just like the rest of us. She has humbled herself more than once for this country by owning up to her mistakes and most likely the mistakes of others. She did this because that's what leaders are supposed to do. Admit to your mistakes; take responsibility as leader for your employees’ mistakes. Then you move on from there to find solutions. Secretary Clinton showed courage, conviction, and loyalty. To her party, her President and also her country. As she continues to fight for children and what she believes is best for this country, I have more admiration for her than ever.
I hope that the people of this country will at least begin to treat her with the respect she deserves and has not received. If not for her political views or her public record, for the years of service she fought for this country, for the causes she continues to fight for and for the positions she…

Mildred Pierce: Joan vs. Kate

Mildred Pierce was a book written in 1941. A book that was also made in to two separate movies. One in 1945 starring Joan Crawford and the other in 2011 starring Kate Winslet.

Just recently I have watched both films, mostly because I was tired of hearing how amazing Joan Crawford was and how Kate Winslet's version would never come close. After having watched both, I realize what I knew before, these people are really stupid. People who say this without proper knowledge of having seen Kate Winslet are just saying this because you must assume the older version is always better. They are making the assumption Kate Winslet can never compare to Joan Crawford because, well, because it is Joan Crawford and she won an Oscar for this role. I haven't seen any of the other movies that were performances of that category in 1945, but she does seem to have deserved it. 
I love both performances and I loved both film versions. I still like Kate Winslet's version as a whole. These are the…
