Motivated May

I am hereby renaming this coming month Motivated May and vow to post at least three times a week for the month.

I have so many book reviews and half-completed drafts in my folder that I’d love to finally publish – plus, it won’t hurt me to have a think about the posts I write for a while. Film reviews are great and I love doing them with Jill but I have more in me, I swear.

In other news, I’ve started a film blog over at Thursday Night at the Movies where I talk solely about films I’ve seen in the cinema. It’s going pretty well and encouraging me to go to the theater as much as possible and see things I might not normally. Have a glance, if you’re into it.

So, a busy month ahead, which is good because I’m never happier than when I’m watching movies, blogging and podcasting.

See you soon!

Mantras

I’m a sucker for all those pretty typography memes you get on Instagram that incite you to be more positive. Cheesy as these motivators may be, there’s a superstitious part of me that takes them on board and feels better for reading their message.

It’s like when I walk down the street and see a penny on the ground. Failure to pick it up can only result in utter terror and a million years bad luck. Obviously these two things are nothing alike, their only similarity is that I choose to believe in their power.

Lately I’ve been sharing daily mantras that personally speak to me. Like, you’re spot on: I AM THE LIGHT! My feed is better looking suddenly and annoyingly, I never get more ‘likes’ than when I’m channeling somebody elses thoughts and aesthetics.

So I’m thinking of making a few of my own motivational memes. Here are a few prototypes:
