Movie Night/Xmas Wishes

Last night I went on date night with two of my friends. It is funny because it is totally platonic and I could never date either of them because we are just too good of friends already ( Elliot if your reading this I don't want to date you either LOL)

Anyway they are great girls and we had a really good time together. We usually do dinner and a movie for our weekly date nights. Tuesday is cheap Tuesday at the movies and cheap Tuesday at Domino's Pizza so it is the perfect combination. Well yesterday we did it a little differently. We still had Domino's but, we found a new movie place.

For five bucks we went to one of those artsy indie theatre's and we saw The Disappearance of Alice Creed. I really don't want to give too much away but I really enjoyed it a lot. There is only three actors in the entire movie. The kidnapped girl and the two bad guys. There is no extra's no voice overs nothing. Just the three of them. Also, for the first ten minutes or so the only thing that is spoken is "ok".

Amazingly, it keeps you really entertained for an hour and half and it picks up speed well after the first ten minutes. I think by now it is out on DVD especially in North America I am sure. I would really recommend it. There is lots of plots twists and some really unexpected stuff for sure! It was worth my 5 bucks. I have never seen a movie with only 3 actors let alone one I actually liked. At least they could keep it on a cheap budget haha.

Now for my Christmas wishes! My job starts the day after Christmas so obviously I wish for that to go well :)  You know I was thinking the other day what do I really want/need for Christmas? really the more I think about it the more I realise that I need nothing. I am perfectly happy as is really. Sure I could use more money but soon that will not be a problem with this new job and even now I am doing ok money wise. I am not rich by any means but I am getting by without struggling super hard. Statistically speaking, I have more money AND belongings than over half of the people in Africa. and I am a backpacker. So think about that, all of you back home when you think you don't have enough.

The only other thing I wanted to mention is how small this world really is. I have mentioned Debs and Nadia in my previous blogs. They are two girls I met here and we have become fast friends. Well it turns out they were in Australia the same time I was. Not only that but they started their travels the exact same day I did! It gets crazier... Because it turns out that Nadia and I were in the same hostel (Wake up) for over seven weeks and we knew tons of the same people but never met until now!!!

Really the only things I want are things I can't have right now. Like a home cooked meal from my dear mother. But I will have a happy Christmas this year and I am really blessed in life so I can wait on that meal until I get home. It is going to be SO good too! I hope all of yall have a great Christmas and New Years and tell your loved ones you love them!

Yall take care,Tyler
