I am working by myself today. First time since I started working at the Bank. I am very excited, especially since I needed 200 hours before I could start working alone. But I have exceeded their expectations and was approved by our regional vice president to be trusted with handling my teller window alone. I know I will be fine, no worries what so ever. I know what I’m doing and I feel confident in my job. Which is a good feeling.
I went and saw Eat Pray Love last night, which has been on my must-see movie list. I was curious to see how accurate it was to the book. It had its moments where I loved how they portrayed a certain part, but like every film they always tweak the story. It captured the essence of the book, which was very pleasing to me. I thought this was a good role for Julia Roberts, she was very convincing. The film was shot very beautifully, the colors were vivid, there was always a soft glow around the main character. Her golden hair tended to shine wherever she went. Maybe a symbol of someone divine protecting her throughout her journey. There was a lot of contrast in the film between colors and light. Lighting was a big part in the film, which made it very interesting. I couldn’t tell you which one I liked better, the film or the book. You always have to separate the two from another, because they are never going to be exactly alike. The film was a good overview of the book. I think that you should see the movie then read the book, I wish I had done it this way. It met my expectations, it was everything I thought it was going to be. I would like to see it again, but not in theaters.
That’s my take on Eat Pray Love.
I hate mindless chatter that seems to drone on in the workplace. I want to enjoy the quiet today…good thing I am working by myself tonight. But until then I will just hope for peace in my mind and heart.
Church tonight: I plan to meet with Jesus and worship Him with my whole heart. I can feel the excitement overcoming me, it’s my favorite time of the week.
