Disney Movie of the Week: Sleeping Beauty

"I know you I walked with you once upon a dream"....actually I don't know you, but I do know that Sleeping Beauty is an awesome movie. This Disney adaptation of a popular fairytale was released January 29, 1959, and is the sixteenth movie in the Disney Animated Features Canon. Now this movie is extra speacial because it was the last Disney Animated feature produced by Walt Disney to be based upon a fairy tale. By owning this movie you own not only a piece of entertainment, but a piece of Disney history.

The basic plot of Sleeping Beauty is pretty much self explanatory. Its about a sleeping beauty. In more detail, this movie is about Princess Aurora who is betrothed at birth to Prince Phillip. Everything is going fine as the three good faeries (flora,fauna, and Merryweather) bless Aurora with gifts of beauty and song, but then the evil witch Maleficent arrives. Her gift is that when Aurora turns 16, she will prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die. As you can see, this would put a damper on things. Luckily for our princess, the last faerie has yet to give her gift. So through some good ol faerie magic, she makes it so that Aurora will only fall asleep instead of dying. Does it work? I can't tell you,so you'll have to watch the movie and find out. I know the suspense is killing you. Give in to it.

Overated Expectations

Some people stop caring. Most people come to this point of their lives later in life. but I'm sixteen and I already have given up on living up to people's expectations. All my life I've been a "good girl". I study, I stay out of trouble, hell on most weekends I stay in my bedroom and draw. Lately, though it just isn't enough. No matter what a person does it's never enough. The grades aren't high enough, friends aren't good enough, nothing is ever enough. So why bother? If life is about making yourself happy, why should I care about what other people expect of me; because as long as I try and please these people I will forever be miserable because they are never satisfied. So I say screw, screw people and their expectations. I'm doing what I want to make me happy, and what people think doesn't matter.

An Antidote to Your Ignorance

This afternoon I was severely bored because I thought Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill were coming on...but they didn't. Anywayyyy, I took this opportunity to broaden my vocabulary. I was searching around Urban Dictionary when I came across the term "Swap Donkey"! As an antidote to your ignorance I have provided not only the definition of a swap donkey but also and example.

Swap Donkey: A very ugly, usually fat girl who hangs around in bars and clubs waiting to sexually assault males who are too drunk to defend themselves

I.E. "Dang!Look at her, what a swamp donkey"
