I Have Taken A Break

As some of you may have noticed, of late, my blog has fallen to the wayside with not much new content (although my Instagram has been pretty active). I pulled an Ed Sheeran and dropped off of the face of the planet. This is due to a variety of reasons. First and foremost, because I was spending so much time editing and writing while maintaining a regular 8-5 job at the same time, I realized that I did not have time for much else in my life, and a lot of things that I usually enjoy doing had fallen to the wayside, meaning that I was enjoying my life less than I should be. I began to start seeing my blog as a chore, instead of a pastime that I do just for the fun of it. So, in order to stop seeing it that way, I decided to take a sabbatical from blogging for about 6 months to attempt to re-embrace all of the things that I love in life. I began to read more, spend more time with my family, hang out with friends, and rediscover things that I love but did not have time for.

My Netflix Addictions: Rom-Com Edition | Summer 2015

So, if you have not been able to gather by now, I really do have a Netflix Addiction. Television and movies in our culture hold so much power, they can teach us about life and loss, love and anger, and open our minds and hearts up to things that may seem impossible and make them appear possible. This for me is just a simple statement about the beauty of the film and media industry. It has this magical way of delving you into an imaginary world and make you forget about your troubles, even if for a short moment. For this reason, and many more, I felt that it was time to expand my Netflix addictions from simply TV shows to movies as well. This post constitutes the first of many posts about my favorite Romantic Comedy movies, as I have many. So, let’s get started.

This post is going to just be blockbuster Romantic-Comedies, or ones that I believe to be high-grossing, and quite popular. At a later date, I plan on listing some of my favorites that are not considered to be blockbusters in the United States, but may be elsewhere in the world (this list is already forming in my head).
