Trying to fit in some writing in between my work and other life stuff is not going well. Though most of my time is actually spent on work and not life stuff, which means even my three days off is packed with activities. Went to the doctor’s again, met up with a good friend visiting from Austria, and today I trust my eyebrows to someone who is studying to make them decent. Tomorrow though, tomorrow is the day where I don’t do anything!

This Thursday Movie Picks comes to you late because girl has some difficult things in her life happening. No worries though, what doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger, and I feel like I’m growing every day as a human and as a person. Anyway, enough about this personal stuff, on to this week’s theme, which is all about the stage!

Another year, another Against the Crowd Blogathon hosted by Dell on Movies (and co-hosted by KG’s Movie Rants) and there’s not chance I’m going to miss this one! Last year was a close call, I discovered it almost at the last minute but still made the deadline. This year, I’m more prepared and I even asked if it was happening before they announced it! Yes, I was that eager to participate! For those who are new here, Against the Crowd is a special blogathon for me because it’s the one I’ve participated every year since it started – I am that dedicated for it! So let’s get going, first the rules and then the two picks I decided to either argue against or defend for!
