These past few days, I have been looking back on my childhood and reminiscing about the music, movies, and general feeling of the times. I'm reminiscing because I have a decision to make: go back to my hometown or pursue another journey. And every other hour, I changed my mind on which decision would be the best. One moment, I am ready to pack my bags and the next, I think absolutely not.
Side note: I probably should read the Power of Now by Eckart Tolle, I feel like there is a lot to discover about life through that book. However, instead I have been watching Alicia Keys' videos and dreaming about a wardrobe I could never pull off.
And since we are the wonderful subject of Alicia Keys, I would like to introduce a favorites list.
Demi's Favorites of the late 90s/early 2000s era
1. The Diary of Alicia Keys (2003)
The whole bloody album is brilliant as seen from its many awards. All the tracks are gems. However, my favorites are "You Don't Know My Name" and "Karma".
2. Two Weeks Notice (2002)
As a kid, did I watch this one film about a billion times? Yes. I savored every moment of the Sandra and Hugh dynamic, especially when mixed with some Norah Jones.
3. French Kiss (1995)
Yes, I love a good love-hate relationship, you understand the pattern. But c'mon! Kevin Kline and Meg Ryan really pull it off well in this romantic comedy.
4. Simply Irresistible (1999)
I remember watching this movie and wanting those little caramel puffs with all my whole soul. I still do.
5. The College Dropout (2004)
Would I be a true Chicagoan if I didn't mention Kanye? Probs not.
6. J. Lo's outfit
That's all folks!
